I Blame Liberals too for the Eric Garner Grand Jury Abortion

Eric Garner’s dying words "I can't breathe" could have been President Obama's cry  for help during the last 7 years. Like other black American men in Tea Party/Fox News America, the President has been choked by right wing hate. But he has also been strangled  by liberal's inability to deal honestly with racism.In fact when a cop kills a black man with impunity liberals helped set the stage. Like the right they too blame the victim, in this case President Obama.What chance does an anon … [Read more...]

How My Dad and I Helped Create the Tea Party GOP and Terrorist Extremism

The 1970s Evangelical antiabortion movement that Dad (Evangelical leader Francis Schaeffer), C Everett Koop (who would be Ronald Reagan's surgeon General), and I helped create seduced the Republican Party. We turned it into an extremist far right party that is fundamentally anti-American.You can't understand why the GOP was so successful in winning back both houses of congress in 2014, and wrecking most of what Obama has tried to do, unless you understand what we did back then.You see, … [Read more...]

Many Evangelical Leaders Are Such SOB’s– What Are They Hiding?

Are Franklin Graham--and/or the 13 Evangelical leaders who wrote to Obama asking to be allowed to discriminate against gay people--gay? I'm betting the answer is yes for some of them. Evangelical Leaders of anti-gay initiatives have turned out to be closeted gays often. Those who fight to “defend the faith” in its fundamentalist harsh incarnation, as Evangelical “professional Christians” often do, have a special need-based interest in making sure other people live by the letter of the Bible’s “in … [Read more...]

Just How Stupid Has FOX News Made White (mostly male evangelical) American Voters?

Are white working class evangelical males born stupid, or did Fox News make them that way? Why do they vote against their own interests? Are they so racist that they just vote against the black man in the White House no matter what? Or did Fox News break their brains? As Thomas B Edsall notes in the New York Times, (The Demise of the White Democratic Voter 11/12/2014) "It has not escaped the notice of political analysts that 72 percent of whites without college degrees — a rough proxy for what w … [Read more...]

Republican Victory Proves That Lies Work With White Evangelicals

 The Republican Party base is white evangelicals. So no wonder the GOP lies about the country, the economy and the president worked. The folks who base their lives on religious mythology have spent lifetimes being trained to believe lies. And if you point that out then they kick into victim mode and denounce people who question them as persecutors. Last night they won. Lies won. As the New York Times noted: "Republican candidates campaigned on only one thing: what they called the … [Read more...]

The EBOLA Lynching of America’s First Black President: Obama, Ebola, Religious Nuts and Racism

 Obama is black! They are black! He’s African! They are African! He wants to let them in with no travel ban! He wants us all to die! He hates America! He’s a secret Muslim! He wasn’t born here! He wants to take away our guns!The white/Fox News/Tea Party/Republican/American reaction to Ebola is moving into the high gear of xenophobia, victimology and fear of the other... and a thank-you-Jesus! phase of naked opportunism: Ebola is just what's needed to help win control of the Senate fo … [Read more...]
