  •  the solid nutty 30% (4+ / 0-)

    Has anyone ever put together a collection of everything that "30% of Americans" is for?

    It seems like that's the magic number for the nutty right. On any position you can count on that 30% to have the most out there position that usually falls in line with the extreme "conservative" position.

    I'd love to see a diary which collects them all.

      In the Stanley Milgram experiments, two thirds of college student subjects went on pushing the buttons, thinking that they were giving painful, even harmful electrical shocks to other people, even to the point of screaming and eventual silence. Even though all of them expressed varying levels of concern, from a single question to dozens of objections, those two-thirds went on. Only about a third refused.

      We still have a few people in this country who were taken to lynchings as children to make sure that they got the right attitude, and had their pictures taken with the bodies.

      I can give you a short version. There is an overlap among the Religious Right, the Tea Parties, and the Neo-Confederates who would like to destroy the Federal government entirely, and at least reinstate Jim Crow. They have also shown themselves willing to take down the global economy via US government default. Only a few of them openly advocate slavery, but you can't very well favor a new Confederacy, as more than a third of Republicans reportedly do, and at the same time claim that you don't think slavery would be a good idea.

      These are the backbone of the Republican War on Everybody Including Each Other, based on racism, bigotry, misogyny, Mammonism, and !!!More Guns More!!!.

      ...that would be a pretty slippery list.
