We in the “reality-based community” celebrated the election a week ago & then moved on to the serious business of moving this country forward. But those in the Fox News/GOP echo chamber just won't let it so. Whether they're trying to secede from the United States, blame the electorate for their loss, or try (once again!) to overturn an election via impeachment, they're spending a LOT more time trying to deny reality than they are trying to change hearts and minds.
Here are a few sad, sad examples from Alabama.
The Greater Birmingham Republican Women, coming off an election where the GOP was totally decimated in Jefferson County, published a newsletter promising to “BELIEVE AND NEVER GIVE UP!” It includes this noxious soup of racism, conspiracy theory, and McCarthyism:
The assault on Liberty we witnessed Tuesday, as was the case in 2008, was led primarily by those on urban “ObamaNation Plantations,” those who depend on what Obama calls “redistributive justice” from the rest of us in order to survive. They account for almost 60 (SIXTY) percent of Obama's constituents, and Socialist Democrats are masters of co-opting (read: “buying”) their allegiance and getting them to the polls. The good news is that about 10 million fewer Obama voters showed up in 2012, despite his billion-dollar campaign.
Words of Encouragement.
Patriots, we were dealt an awful body blow on Tuesday, and the odds we face in our quest to restore Liberty and Rule of Law enshrined in our Declaration and Constitution may seem insurmountable.
Remember Hugh McInnish and his tinfoil hat – challenging President Obama's citizenship and suing Republican Secretary of State Beth Chapman.
And if you want to touch the face of true delusions, visit some of the Alabama TEA Party Facebook groups like this Baldwin County group:
Then there's the GOP “leadership” in the state: we have a Governor who prefers to have the federal government do his damn job and a House Speaker who confuses his elected party positon with the Maginot Line.
God help us all. Please. Because it's pretty obvious that a good chunk of the country is more than happy to cut us loose….
