"I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark."
No such thing as climate change according to the Right Wing media pundits, the facts be damned, they will keep thinking that even after the oceans rise and the planet heats up and the human species is on the brink of extinction so long as they have theirs. The biggest lies are supported and paid for by the oil industry and their bought and paid for Right Wing think tanks that deny global warming is happening. The new film "The Age of Stupid" puts the lie to this.
Health Care should continue to be privatized even though every major industrialized country in the world has health care for all their citizens and in most these countries it IS successful, which is a not what the Conservative Right and their supporters the Health Insurance industry wants people to know. The fact is that millions of poor in America, especially children, die for lack of adequate health care is acceptable to the Conservative Right makes them morally bankrupt. Health insurance companies are unscrupulous and ruthless profit making entities who are answerable to their stock holders. They keep profits high and spending low by denying care to those in greatest need and to them this is acceptable, but in truth it is criminal. They scream that a health care option is just too much like socialism, Oh My. What it is, is an option, a choice. The American people should have the right to choose. The Conservative Right has resorted to scare tactics, frightening old people, "death panels", how stupid can we be. All the lies are paid for by the health insurance industry, selling their lies to the uninformed and using scare tactics, who spent 14.4 million dollars on congress last year.
See for yourself, learn the truth about the Health Care Insurers.
Gays should not marry, this is a big one with the right. They are blatantly anti gay. Gays would destroy society, marriage is sacred, god hates gays and they know because they have a direct line to God, God speaks to them. They are the self righteous hypocrites telling the rest of America how to live. If they had the power they would have a theocracy and burn heretics at the stake and make America an evangelical white christian right wing gun carrying America only good for their brand of Christianity. They would make the inquisition look like a garden party. If Jesus came back, what would he say, what would they do. Jesus is a Jew not a christian, an orthodox Jew at that. That would put a fly in the ointment. They would have to ask the Right wing republican leaders, Limbaugh, Hannity, O'reilly and the other Right Wing morons what to do. The ultimate in hypocrisy is that the Conservative religious Right does not want to be told what to do by government but they claim the right to tell everyone how to live and would deny freedom to anyone who thinks differently.
A black president, heck he ain't a citizen, he ain't even white. The subtle racism coming out of Right Wing talk radio and Television is nauseating. These sanctimonious hypocrites use every innuendo and subtle suggestive racial language to inflame their listeners. The frame every issue to suggest it is a racial divide, that the president is anti American, anti white and that our White Rights are going to be taken away. They create fear and anger. The result can and will be violence which of course they will publicly deplore. As has been the case with abortion.
Abortion is another hot button. They would deny a woman the right to have an abortion, a subtle form of discrimination against women. They won't take care of the children for them, perpetuating a cycle of poverty. They can live in poverty, die because of a lack of health care because we don't want socialism, and if the child lives he can go and die in war to preserve the white Right privilege. They kill to preserve life, with the support of the right wing media morons.
This is not to say that all Christian groups are Right Wing Conservative in their leaning. Most are good moral people who have a faith in the divine goodness of Gods grace and wish to do good in the world. While many may not support gay marriage and may oppose Abortion they would not kill to oppose it. Lest we label religion an evil entity which it is not, it is the radicalized fringe that are a danger and that is married to the Right Wing radical media to support their agendas. An agenda that is designed to protect and preserve a white corporate America privilege and wealth from the incursions of the non white non christian world and would impose a Christian Talibanization on the rest of America.
