How the Republican Party Became the Party of Hate

Sep 08 2012 Published by under Featured News

I became an atheist because of the hatred generally associated with the Republican Party and their love of God. A party based upon: homophobia, xenophobia, racism, oppression as well as violence seems to be the norm, regardless of sex or age.

A story written by reporter Sarah Jones titled-What Do You Do With a 16-Year-Old Who Calls for the Assassination of Obama? Is proof positive that the conservative party is not the party of Abraham Lincoln, Dwight Eisenhower, Ricard Nixon or arguably, Ronald Reagan. It has morphed into some evil entity that even Richard Nixon would shudder at.

@Alyssa_Douglas: Someone needs to assassinate Obama…like ASAP #DieYouPieceOfShit

Alyssa Douglas, a 16-year-old girl was questioned by the Secret Service and most likely, not be charged for making a threat, seemed to have a hatred for a man she knows nothing about, except what is spewed from Fox News or other conservative media. Her photo shows a happy-go-lucky girl who probably typed what she wrote as a naive and gullible teen. But her actions are leading to her eventual path everyone fears to follow… prison.

Many wondered why would she tweet:

@Alyssa_Douglas: Someone needs to assassinate Obama…like ASAP #DieYouPieceOfShit

Maybe because no one taught her that a threat against the president is a federal offense:

18 USC § 871 – Threats against President and successors to the Presidency

USC › Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 41 › § 871

(a) Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits for conveyance in the mail or for a delivery from any post office or by any letter carrier any letter, paper, writing, print, missive, or document containing any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States, the President-elect, the Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President of the United States, or the Vice President-elect, or knowingly and willfully otherwise makes any such threat against the President, President-elect, Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President, or Vice President-elect, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

(b) The terms “President-elect” and “Vice President-elect” as used in this section shall mean such persons as are the apparent successful candidates for the offices of President and Vice President, respectively, as ascertained from the results of the general elections held to determine the electors of President and Vice President in accordance with title 3, United States Code, sections 1 and 2. The phrase “other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President” as used in this section shall mean the person next in the order of succession to act as President in accordance with title 3, United States Code, sections 19 and 20.

I knew from elementary school that making a threat against the president is a federal offense. I knew I was abiding by the law when I said that George W. Bush must be hanged at the Hague. The threat was no threat because the comment of punishment was the result of a fair and impartial jury and the hanging is the punishment portion of the fair and impartial hearing.

Yet what is the progenitor of the Republican Party or the neo-conservative hate movement and when did it first reared its ugly head? Arguably since WWII. And it began with George W. Bush’s grandfather Prescott Bush.

The Republican Party of the 20th century aligned itself with the right winged Christian hate groups, Nazis, Ku Klux Klan and other far right fringe groups that in the past, the Republicans abhorred. As the party grew, the continual hatred grew in leaps and bounds and problems ensued.

Hate groups like God Hates F@gs are the norm and not the exception. Other norms within the Republican party are:

American Border Patrol/American Patrol
Ideology:
Anti-Immigrant

American Family Association
Ideology:
Anti-Gay

American Third Position
Ideology:
White Nationalist

Aryan Nations
Ideology:
Neo-Nazi

Blood & Honour
Ideology:
Racist Skinhead

Brotherhood of Klans
Ideology:
Ku Klux Klan

And other extremist groups aligning themselves with the Republican Party mainly because:

“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

Now is Mitch McConnell racist? Not necessarily, but his goal to get Obama out of office, not because he’s black, but because Obama is a Democrat, and the Republicans want control of the House, Senate, White House and the SCOTUS. But in order to get the Democratic Party out, they will delve into the above-mentioned extremists and play with fire, in order to win.

So when Douglas, a 16-year-old white girl writes her garbage, it just incites the base and where ever the chips fall, McConnell and his band of idiots will only try to take the power away from the people and ultimately, throw people like Douglas and the other right winged extremists under the bus…oh and blame Obama and the Democratic Party.

So be aware of your surrounding, know your enemies and vote Democratic.
