“All too often, we’re associated with being anti-everything. Way too many people believe that Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on.”
Gee, ya think?
Why would that be? Republicans? Extreme and small-minded? Anti-everything? Via a post I wrote back in 2011 during the Wisconsin protests:
The GOP wants to do away with unions.
The GOP wants to do away with the middle class.
The GOP wants to do away with the Democratic party.
The GOP wants to do away with free speech and expression.
The GOP wants to do away with human dignity.
The GOP wants to do away with health care for anyone but the wealthiest Americans… Especially women’s health care.
The GOP wants to do away with allowing two people who love each other to marry each other.
The GOP wants to do away with freedom of choice.
We need to do away with the extreme demands of the GOP. We have no choice… but that’s exactly what they want.
Which brings us to 2012, when Mitt Romney famously said, “It would be helpful to be Latino.”
And according to a Republican strategy memo, “Republicans have run out of persuadable white voters.”
Which brings me to 2013, when RNC Chair Reince Priebus wants to play hero with minorities GOP hasn’t wanted to touch with a 10-foot car elevator. Check out the list of “anti-everythings” in that post.
And let’s not forget the Rolling Stone piece that warned us, “Don’t be fooled” by the so-called GOP makeover. “Rarely has it been more dangerous.”
Finally, Jeb said this:
“We need to be larger than that.”
Insert obvious large Republican joke here. I can’t bring myself to do it. It would be too anti.
