Republican Delusion Spins to New Heights!

From a comment at Town Hall:

"It is the greatest hijack.

The Republicans have fought for the rights of the Blacks and minorities against the racists in the Democratic Party. Yet, it is the GOP that is portrayed as racists and bigots.

I guess all the Dems had to do was take off their white hoods and stop lynching and viola, the press portrays them as the ones that championed civil rights"

Viola!  And cello too!

Can someone explain to me how you deal with people who claim to believe things like this?  I mean, short of the techniques pioneered by those who fought the ebola virus?

They can't be dealt with, they can't be reasoned with, they can't be bargained with. We the People must shun them and continually highlight the pernicious evil of the Modern Conservative Movement.

To paraphrase 'Only when the last One Percenter is strangled with the entrails of the last Republican will mankind be free.'

Not that I'm calling for violence on your blog far from it just paraphrasing...

That business about Democrats and the Klan is a favorite meme at Townhall.com. I suspect it is parroted from one particular wingnut talker (Beck?) and the grain of truth is that Democrats (of a certain stripe) were dominant in the South for many years, partly as a result of discontent over Republican involvement in postwar Reconstruction. But what the Townhall folks never mention is how Nixon's Southern Strategy started to shift the crackers into the GOP column after the civil-rights era. I'm sure the remarkable looniness of the present-day GOP base has much to do with that shift.

I meant to say "post-Civil War Reconstruction...."
