When Republicans Get a Little Too Blunt

Roger Schlafly, the son of right wing ur-pig Phyllis Schlafly, today at her website:

"WASHINGTON — After years of speculation, estimates and projections, the Census Bureau has made it official: White births are no longer a majority in the United States...

It is not a good thing. The immigrants do not share American values, so it is a good bet that they will not be voting Republican when they start voting in large numbers."

Like Jonah Goldberg, no one would have ever heard of this stupid scum if his mother wasn't such a vicious right wing hatchet swinger.  Maybe we shouldn't take it too seriously given that he got his job from mommy, but there it is:  Not Republican- not American.  You can't get too much plainer than that.

"He was hip he can dance, he can sing" - Sean Duffy, Republican Wisconsin, who is struggling on his $174,000 congressional salary, explains why Young people voted for President Obama.

What Right-Wing Racism!

Some whites in this country have always felt the same as Schafly and Sean Duffy. If you're a Black American and were born and raised in the South like I was, what many of the republicans are saying and doing is not new and is not surprising. They've always said the same thing. The election of Barack Obama has emboldened them to the point where it has become socially acceptable to give voice to this type of BullStank. IMHO, those who are surprised at how some of the republicans have treated the president, Muslims, Hispanics, gays, lesbians, atheists, and others, most likely have not been paying close attention to the ugly undercurrents of racism that permeate this society. In a way, it's a good thing that they are showing other Americans and people around the world exactly who/what they are. Maybe, over time, they'll take a good look at themselves and sit down and STFU and allow the rest of us to live in peace.

No they won’t.


Sorry for my pessimism… but we have all keyboard clobbered so many Right wingers with irrefutable fact, common sense and simple appeals to decency over the years… only to be met with the internet equivalent of a drooling blank stare… that I’m all outa faith that they’ll ever get it.

Best you can hope for is their kids won’t be like them.

Maji, you are absolutely right that, not some, but most Republicans feel this way. I was just happy to catch one of them slipping up and admitting it in public.

Unfortunately, I agree with Magpie that these people will never learn to be decent human beings. What I fear is that, as it becomes more and more obvious that demographics are in the process of sending them into the trash bin of history, they will become increasingly violent and hateful.

This is something that I first started talking about in the mid-1990's and, sad to say, history since then has pretty much vindicated my fears.
