>Political scientists Thomas E. Mann and Norman J. Ornstein once observed that, “The Republican Party has become an insurgent outlier — ideologically extreme; contemptuous of the inherited social and economic policy regime; scornful of compromise; unpersuaded by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.” >They wrote that in a 2012 book called “It’s Even Worse Than It Looks.” Ten years later, it’s even worse than that. >It’s important to be clear on that, not to “blame” the GOP but because James Baldwin was right. You cannot fix what you will not face. And what America needs to face is the simple, chilling fact that the Republican Party is a clear and present danger. >Confronting that does not make you a partisan. >It makes you a patriot.

I blame the real villains that fund the Republican Party. The GOP is a well oiled machine designed to convince people to vote against their best interests. Fox News and all the other media really help as well. All bought and paid for by the same villains funding the GOP.

There’s no room in this country for traitors.

I didn’t know there were so many white grievances, such deep-seated trauma having had a dark-skinned President, it led to racists blowing their heads off in RV parks nationwide. So many underserved morons have finally found their party, and they’re running it. They should rename it The Moron Party.
