Last night I violated my years long pledge to not engage wingnutty wingnuts on Facebook, by responding to a derpy derp over sequestration, the wingnutty wingnut poster claiming the sequestration was “Obama’s idea”.

I in turn made the outrageous claim that the sequester is the spawn of the infamous standoff over the debt ceiling two years ago, in which newly elected Teabag Republicans demanded spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt limit or else they would plunge the nation into default. These outrageous facts are known to most people with a pulse, but sometimes such outrageous outrages need to pointed out to our wingnutty acquaintances.

I am kind of conflicted. As a leftist who hates America, maybe the Republican sequestration would allow my life long dream of destroying America to come true without me doing anything leftist to bring that about…….

But then I would be in the debt of Republicans for this gift…….That’s a quandary…….

It’s because of actions like this that I compare the GOP, as currently constituted, as revolutionaries rather than conservatives. They want to destroy the current system of governance so that they can then rebuild it in a manner they prefer.

The nearest historical equivalent in my opinion is the Bolsheviks. The GOP, like the Bolsheviks, is driven by an ideology based on a poor economic analysis, with the belief that they’ll be the ones at the top of the heap when the fires go out.

If America has to die in order for this to come about, “So be it,” they say.

I think you are not far from the truth. I used the term “Burn down the house to own the ashes”. They would happily destroy America because everything not of them is evil. If that’s not a Cult, I don’t know what is. They are attempting the greatest transfer of power and money upwards to the wealthy by rewriting the laws and suffocating the regulations that were designed to stop such actions. They are anything but stupid. They are fascist, wrapped in a flag and holding up a Bible, selling you a America that never existed. That is evil.
