Sometimes, the Right forgets to be subtle. They forget that Hispanics are a growing part of their constituency (and speaking of which, what kind of self-hate is that?). When that happens, they find themselves saying things like this: Whites have to have more babies in order to keep the Hispanics from becoming a politically powerful group.
Now, I realize that calling someone a Nazi is an Internet cliché, but this is so incredibly in line with Nazi eugenics (particularly when coupled with the “Minutemen” — which, as a Massachussetan, it really bothers me that they used that name) that the similarity has to be pointed out.
Come on, America. How could you have not seen this coming? I say “you” because this is the kind of shit I’ve been talking about for almost a decade now. So let me say this straight:
If the Religious Right continues its rise to power, they will kill you. They are murderous, greedy, lying, stealing tyrants. If you voted for Bush, it’s your fault. If you voted for a Republican for the House or Senate, it’s your fault.
But you’re a grownup living in a democracy. You can change that. You can look around at your fellow Americans and decide to fire the guy who’s making this happen, who abused your trust by promising “compassion”.
The Republicans may have, at some point, had a valid political point: a balanced budget, for instance, is a good idea, keeping us out of debt to those who don’t have our country’s best interests at heart. Self-reliance, that’s a good thing, right? But this thing, this machine that it’s become? It speaks only lies: it indebts you and your children to the house of Saud and it removes your civil rights, the very things you need to make decisions of conscience as an individual.
They want nothing less than world-dominating power. And, for some reason, Americans have been voting to give it to them.
