Why in the blue FUCK did you feel the need to cave to the Party of
Lincoln Orly Taitz in coming out against the Cordoba Center in NYC?
For FUCK’S SAKE.
You just kowtowed to the wing of people who made "death panels" from a completely fictitious and utterly disdainful lie into reality in the minds of some people, specifically senior citizens whom last year’s health care bill was actually designed to help.
When does this kind of bullshit end?
When will the goddamn Democratic Party learn to not only find a message and attempt to stick with it, but find a single piece of vertebrae that does not splinter like balsa wood under the slightest inkling of pressure from the biggest, loudest, most putrid and pontificating gasbags on the right side of the aisle?
When will someone who is not named Alan Grayson stand up and tell Republicans to sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up because they are wrong? I don’t need to explain the Cordoba House controversy to anyone here because you are all well aware of it.
Most Democrats have either vacillated or remained completely silent about this issue. This should be a completely non-issue in a time of economic crisis not seen in generations.
The Party of the Republic is busy hammering away at cultural issues when people are hammering out resumes by the dozen because they can’t find work.
The GOBP is busy pushing to keep their corporate benefactors like BP and Wall Street on their high horses because – to quote Homer Simpson for a moment – Jesus/Allah/Buddha – knows that they won’t be able to maintain any electoral advantage without fat dirty bloody wads of cash.
The Party of Lincoln has much more akin to that of Strom Thurmond or Joseph McCarthy as they proudly, arrogantly, and with much gusto, bandy about as their central platforms the ideologies of racism, bigotry, and homophobia.
That's what they are running on! Not away from. ON! That's what they want people to care about, because their other "ideas" on things like the economy are morally, fiscally, and politically bankrupt with the rest of America.
Yet the Democratic Party and its apparent "leaders" like Harry Reid are either too afraid to stand up to them or are too content to let them continue. As a smart man said not quite 2 years ago:
Yeah this is a rant diary and I’m sorry for anyone who does not think it needs to be said, but it does. This isn’t about the President. This about showing some godforsaken leadership in a time where the American People sorely need it.
This isn’t about Muslims or Christians or Whites or Arabs or anything.
This country is hurting. The world is hurting. People are suffering, despondent, more and more destitute by the day, and we need help. Everyone needs help. And those who caused the disastrous climate need to be held accountable.
And what are our elected leaders doing? Bowing in fealty and submission to the almighty Right Wing Noise Machine.
I am fucking disgusted, and you should be too.
