While it's true that all scumbags are NOT Conservative Republicans...

It's an indisputable FACT that ALL Conservative Republicans ARE scumbags.

As a matter of fact, I've come to the conclusion that the ONLY reason why a Conservative Republican party exists is to be a vehicle to inflict their horrible scumbaggery on the rest of humanity.

They are the modern day venue for the biggest collection of lying, misogynistic, racist, greedy, violent… Shit, these motherfuckers are just plain EVIL. I really don't how to put it more simply than that. And they're not just some plain junior comic book villain grade form of evil. They're a form of life-threatenlingly dangerous kind of evil.

It's not very difficult at all to see how evil these assholes are. In the space to THREE minutes, I found these three examples of what I'm talking about. First, we have this incredible example:

Bubba Carpenter, Mississippi GOP Lawmaker, Lauds Potential Return Of 'Coat Hanger' Abortions

Republican Mississippi state Rep. Bubba Carpenter recently gave a callous assessment of a state anti-abortion law that critics have cautioned could close down the state's only abortion clinic.

Abortion rights advocates have protested the measure, claiming that the shuttering of the facility -- brought on by potentially overwhelming certification requirements for practicing physicians -- could force women to turn to dangerous alternatives. This prospect didn't seem to concern Carpenter.

"[Y]ou have the other side. They're like, 'Well, the poor pitiful women that can't afford to go out of state are just going to start doing them at home with a coat hanger.' That's what we've heard over and over and over," Carpenter told an Alcorn County GOP meeting in a video flagged by Rachel Maddow's blog. "But hey, you have to have moral values. You have to start somewhere, and that’s what we've decided to do."


After that, we have this one:

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Depicted In Dog Collar On GOP Candidate's Website

A Republican congressional candidate has put up a website going after Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), calling her President Barack Obama's "attack dog" and depicting her in a studded dog collar.

Businessman Ozzie deFaria is running in the GOP primary in Florida's 20th Congressional District for the chance to take on Wasserman Schultz in November. He has launched a website devoted to mocking Wasserman Schultz, saying she is "Nancy Pelosi's East Coast Twin and Obama's biggest Attack Dog." At the top of the site is a photo of the congresswoman, manipulated to show her in a dog collar:


And this one is a gem:

John Derbyshire, Fired National Review Writer, Writes Another Racist Article

John Derbyshire, the conservative writer fired from the National Review after writing a post on Taki's Mag suggesting that whites keep their distance from blacks, has written a new essay defending white supremacy.

In a post called Who Are We? -- The "Dissident Right"? on VDare, a site that is opposed to immigration and multiculturalism -- and which is considered a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center -- the English-American writer muses on how those who share his ideology should refer to themselves. The term "white supremacy," he says, has gotten a bad rap.


For honorable mention and in complete defiance of Godwin's Law, a Conservative Republican law critter goes all Nazi:

Steve Vaillancourt, New Hampshire Lawmaker, Ejected From House After Nazi Salute

A Republican lawmaker in New Hampshire was physically removed from the state House of Representatives on Tuesday afternoon after he made a Nazi salute during a contentious debate about limiting what is considered valid voter identification.

Rep. Steve Vaillancourt (R-Manchester) shouted, "Sieg Heil" and moved his hand in the air after House Speaker William O'Brien (R-Mont Vernon) restricted what he could address during a floor debate on an amendment to a state voter ID bill. O'Brien had restricted what Vaillancourt could say about the full bill, saying that he could not reference the House Election Law Committee's discussion, only the issues presented in the committee report.

O'Brien, who had previously threatened to toss Vaillancourt from the floor, used Vaillancourt's outburst to have the veteran lawmaker moved off the floor. It is first time in at least a decade that a House member has been removed from the chamber in New Hampshire. House members then voted 238 to 103 to allow Vaillancourt to apologize to the full chamber in order to be allowed back in, setting off further debate when Vaillancourt did not apologize in the manner that O'Brien had expected.


I don't know what to say, I'm speechless.

But, I'm wondering, is there a way that we can banish all of these assholes to some far off region where they can't be around decent human beings?

We need to do that just to save ourselves.

1. It's hard to believe that most DUers are so sheltered as to never come into contact with Republicans


On a personal level. Because they are just people like you and I. The idea that scumbaggery is skewed in one political direction or another is pretty ridiculous. In fact, I would argue that scumbaggery is skewed toward the apolitical. Because real scumbags don't care much about politics. They care about 'getting theirs,' as it were. They don't have time for that shit. They spend their time scheming, plotting, and being assholes.

All of the biggest scumbags I've ever known have either been apolitical, or have copped a faux 'against the system' attitude that could be either right or left.

5. Those aren't everyday people


They are politicians and pundits. Derbyshire isn't even American. Regular interactions with regular people produce different results than interactions with headline-seekers through the press.

9. But ordinary people vote for and cheer on these people all the time...

They IDENTIFY with these assholes.

These pols and pundits are simply the extension of the Conservative Republican psyche made real. And they're using the headline-seekers to create the world that they want to see.

That's not a world that I want to live in.

3. Come to North Idaho

The worst scumbags we have are all big-time players in one of our 35 different "more Reaganesque than Reagan" groups.

4. I always say that "all republicans may not be racists but every racist I know is a republican"

It really is a party full of the scum of the earth.

But it's a great start.

8. now ask yourself, how are the outrages you cite smart politics?

These assholes are making statements we find sick and outrageous. And yet, they're using these repulsive notions to motivate their base, shift the dialog, and win elections. Their statements are the result of planning and calculation, not careless offhand comments.

We live in a very sick country. These people may be part of the sickness, it's true, but they'll happily use that sickness to their direct advantage. Until we who disagree with them take a strong stand and bring our friends and their friends along they will beat us 2/3 of the time. Over many years, they've convinced me that their methods, however disgusting, are not mere madness, far from it.

10. Not All GOPers are the monsters that you create them to be.

Most GOP people that I know do not represent the people that you characterize them to be. I personally despise GOP politics and some people's political view will make me head explode. But I do not judge people on political view.

For example, a GOPer could be empathetic and very caring person which I know a lot of in my life, but he trusts a private charity to help people and he gives a lots of money to that charity. He does not trust the government because it wastes money on programs that he finds not to help people. He donates heavily and donates a ton of time to the local charity because he feels that it provides a better investment in needy people lives than the government.

However, a progressive can correctly point out there is a lot of services that the government can do far better at allocating resources than a bunch of small non-profits can do if managed correctly. He will complain that government is too corrupt and those programs are ineffective. A good progressive would point that there the programs are underinvested and too much money waste is going into defense, tax cuts which subidize the lifestyle of superrich, and massive bloated defense program such as the F-35.

At the end of the day, the progressive is correct, but the GOPer in this case, points a number of flaws within the system that are correct.

11. What is this, Say Nice Things About A Republican Day?

You had to dig out a Three Year Old OP of mine to do this?

Fuck that noise.

I'm not impressed by self-righteous, judgemental GOPers and their selectively applied sympathy. These people are the worst thing about this country. They're all for themselves, as they think that they're the default party, but they are so very quick to condemn other people, like gays, poor people, minorities, the right of women to control their own bodies, non-Christians and just about anyone else who has the temerity to not be just like them.

How do you think that corruption could get so rampant without the Republican Party's generation long campaign to privatize government services? They've sowed distrust and hatred for collective progression with their own incompency and malfeasance while in government, all with the help of right wing media. Then they sat back and sold out the rest of us to their cronies with shady contracts and by rigging the tax code. Does Cheney ring a bell?

Fuck those evil motherfuckers.
