As I watched this clip from religious right caveman Bryan Fischer’s latest bug-eyed loony rant, I realized I was going to run out of adjectives; blatantly racist, bigoted, ignorant, hateful, creepy, xenophobic, etc. etc.
Fischer’s premise here is that Latinos are “socialists by nature,” who want open borders so they can bring in their huge families to “plunder the wealth of the United States.” And that’s why we have to stop them from coming in and “clamp down on immigration,” because they’ll vote for Democrats.
You won’t believe it. This one’s nuts even by Fischer’s already very low standards.
Some Republican politicians are trying to get out in front of their massive loss this election by making speeches calling for the party to stop being so stupid.
No, really — that’s what Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said yesterday.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Monday called on Republicans to “stop being the stupid party” and make a concerted effort to reach a broader swath of voters with an inclusive economic message that pre-empts efforts to caricature the GOP as the party of the rich.
In his first interview since his party’s electoral thumping last week, Jindal urged Republicans to both reject anti-intellectualism and embrace a populist-tinged reform approach that he said would mitigate what exit polls show was one of President Barack Obama’s most effective lines of attack against Mitt Romney. …
“It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments — enough of that,” Jindal said. “It’s not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it can’t be tolerated within our party. We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”
Politico’s article doesn’t mention it, but Gov. Jindal is rather infamous at LGF for pushing the very stupidest of stupid right wing positions; he enthusiastically promoted and signed into law a bill in Louisiana that legitimizes the teaching of creationism under the disguise of “academic freedom.” Jindal’s promotion of creationism outraged scientists across America; one scientific organization actually cancelled a major convention in protest.
More recently, Jindal has also promoted legislation that allows Louisiana state funding to go to private religious schools that teach creationism and all kinds of other anti-science mind rot.
And that’s not all, by a long shot. While a college student, Jindal took part in an exorcism, that he claimed cured a woman of cancer.
And of course, when Jindal gave the GOP response to President Obama’s congressional address in 2009, he singled out “volcano monitoring” for mockery, as a government expense he would cut — a few months before the eruption of a giant Icelandic volcano that disrupted air traffic all around the world. Jindal’s dumb comments about volcano monitoring also outraged scientists across America.
This is the guy who’s going to be the poster boy for the new super-intelligent big-brained GOP?
Good luck with that.
Paul Ryan is showing just how deep Republican introspection will go after their huge loss; he now says he didn’t lose because of the issues, but because too many black people got to vote.
In his first interview since losing the election, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) wouldn’t admit that voters rejected his economic vision and instead chalked up President Obama’s victory to a large turnout of the “urban vote.” “I don’t think we lost it on those budget issues, especially on Medicare, we clearly didn’t lose it on those issues,” Ryan to local station WISC-TV. “I think the surprise was some of the turnout, some of the turnout especially in urban areas, which gave President Obama the big margin to win this race.”
