No, I’m not kidding. Sad to say, this is not satire. Not intentionally, anyway:
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) doesn’t think that the hardline stance Republicans have taken on immigration could hurt the party’s standing with Hispanic voters. Instead, he thinks Democrats are hurting their prospects with white voters.
“This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else,” he said during an interview Monday with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham. “It’s part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things. Well that’s not true.”
Christ on a bread roll, really? No, I mean seriously, really? These Obama-hating racist fuckwits are accusing DEMS of racism?
These nimrods just keep getting nimroddier: influential Republicans are on record as saying just that. Congresscritter Ted Yoho said it:
“I’ve had some radical ideas about voting and it’s probably not a good time to tell them, but you used to have to be a property owner to vote,” he said to applause.
You know, the way it was back in the days of slavery.
Teabagging Repub Judson Phillips also extolled the virtues of not letting Americans who rent their homes vote:
“If you’re not a property owner, you know, I’m sorry but property owners have a little bit more of a vested interest in the community than non-property owners”:
To be clear: these Repubs want to take away the voting rights of more than a third of all Americans. That’s their idea of freedom, I guess. If you rent, they want to take away your rights.
Frankly, if you rent and vote for the GOP, you are just as stupid as repub women, black republicans, gays who vote republican, Hispanics who give Repubs their votes, and so on. Stupid, stupid people, giving Bo
ehner and Co. the rope they’ll use to hang you with.
Remember who supports your right to vote, when you vote.
