Manifestation of the death cult

Posted

No sane person will deny that American Republicans are the greatest threat to human life on the planet. They surpass every terrorist group in devilish brutality, because they’re willing to end all human life. Their denial of what Dahr Jamail calls ‘global disruption,’ or man-made (anthropogenic) climate warming, for the wealth and crushing dominance of their fossil-fuel donors, jeopardizes the health and viability of every single human being you know, your mom and dad, your sons and daughters. Your grandchildren’s future is at risk because of rabid Republican greed. This might be best understood as an economic dimension of the Republican death-cult.

American Nazis, Klansmen, and other white racists have found a welcoming home in the Republican party, but even Hitler’s Nazis could not go quite so far as these savage American Republicans. Germany lacked the means to destroy the entire world, but nuclear-laden, American Republicans do, and willingly call for their use. The Republican senator from Arkansas, Tom Cotton, has boasted that in an attack on Iran, only two strikes would be necessary, a first and last one. Poof, a pair of American nukes kills 80,000,000 souls. This represents the military-imperialism of the mad Republican death-cult.

Evangelical Republicans are the spiritual manifestation of the death-cult. Obsessed with an end-time eschatology, pruned mightily from a smattering of biblical passages, many believe that all but 144,000 of living Jews will most certainly die for rejecting the Republican Jesus that Republican evangelicals have crafted. And so, poof, 15,000,000 Jews, dead. Talk about a final solution, a gift Hitler would die for, all wrapped up and bow-tied by American Republicans.

I get where you're coming from. However, I hesitate at tarring every Republican with the same brush. A lot of them in years past identified with a more benevolent version of the party, and many somewhat innocently succumbed to the lies and the snake oil being pitched by Donald Trump when he ran for office. I hope a great many of them will make a point of redeeming themselves at the polls in 2020. I have Republican friends whose attitudes are a far cry from Donald's.

Our problem with the GOP is mainly with its presence in the upper levels of government. Donakd, Mitch McConnell and other noteworthy sorts, the power-hungry in many state governments. When I write negatively about "Republicans," these are whom I have in my sights.

I find this a very disturbing post. Republicans are not the enemy. The enemy is racism, hatred. Finding common ground is what we need. Division only makes us seem unable to understand each other. People disagree, that's a fact of life. I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend your right to say it.

Yes, Justin, I did pose the question "Is the GOP a hate group?" And I think that's fair when posed as a question, considering the party's leadership. However, I do feel that at the grassroots level not all Republicans are out-and-out racists. Many who voted for Donald are just more like those who succumbed to the wiles of the old-time snake-oil salesmen. Donald spews out some sort of hatred (and lie) about every time he opens his mouth or dispenses one of his awkward tweets.

Bob, yes please up the meds. I am a very sane person. I believe that people like you and Trump are the bane of our society. People so polarised you can't have a decent discourse on politics and society. I am a liberal republican. A strong supporter of human rights and one who feels fiscal policies are important. Did I vote for Trump? Not a prayer in hell. But I also wouldn't vote for Bernie. Bob I am a local shop owner who pays taxes in our local community (and beyond) and I would NEVER paint one party with your bloody red brush. Up your meds please.
