The extreme right wing Christians who are now declaring war on abortion rights of women are totalitarian minded hypocrites who do NOT care about the lives of poor children once they are born.
They are pro birth, but not truly pro life, as many of them support capital punishment, and have no desire or interest in supporting single mothers, abused mothers, raped mothers, incest mothers, and are from states that historically have always mistreated the poor.
Yet they claim to be following the teachings of Jesus, when many are them are actually antisemites, as well as racists, nativists, and misogynists. Their only interest in the religion of Judaism is to convince them to become Christians, and even at the time when Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the evangelical preachers were preaching the virtues of their extremist views of Christianity, rather than supporting the Jewish faith.
Evangelical right wingers are not true friend of Jews, or any other faith, or of the dignity of women to control their own lives, and particularly when they are the victims of violence through rape and incest, and when they are themselves children as young as 11 or 12.
The role of extremist religion and women’s rights continues to be a battleground, and anyone who believes in the dignity of women must fight this massive campaign to outlaw legal abortion, as it is designed to harm women who will still get abortions underground, endangering their lives.
This must be a key campaign issue in the Presidential and Congressional Elections of 2020!
The Tea Party Movement of 2010 has lost BIG in 2012, and the nasty, mean spirited conservatism it represents must be overcome by the Republican Party, which MUST change or be replaced!
Congressman Allen West of Florida, Congressman Joe Walsh of Illinois, Senate nominee Todd Akin of Missouri, and Senate nominee Richard Mourdock of Indiana headline those who lost.
Never again can the Republican Party try to dictate to women about their reproductive lives; never can the GOP attack Hispanics and Latinos in a nasty, mean spirited way and expect to gain their support; never can the party of 2012 allow itself to let religious extremists to control its destiny and dictate religious doctrine to the nation at large; never can they promote foreign wars and aggression as the neoconservatives did under George W. Bush; never can they promote lack of concern for the middle class and the poor, as Mitt Romney made clear in his “47 percent” speech; never can they allow themselves to become the captive of billionaires such as Sheldon Adelson and the Koch Brothers; never can they allow Donald Trump and other jerks like him to take control of their public message: never can they allow racists and talk show hosts, such as Rush Limbaugh, and other extremists and hate mongers to dictate to them—and in many other ways, they must liberate themselves from their demons, or become part of the dustbin of history!
They must become more like the Conservative Party of Great Britain, which is far to the left of the present Republican Party, but still to the right of the Labour Party of Great Britain!
It is up to them, and purging and house cleaning must begin in earnest!
In the three years since Barack Obama became President in January 2009, the Republican Party has done everything possible to make Barack Obama “a one term President”, as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declared in 2009.
They have been proud of their efforts, so it is time to show how they have worked against the interests of the American people as they have fought against Obama and his initiatives.
MoveOn.org has made up a list of the “wars” waged by the GOP, and they are worthy to note.
The Republicans have waged war against the reproductive rights of women.They have declared war on child labor laws, unions and collective bargaining rights; war against marriage equality for gay men and women; war on science, the environment, and public health; war on education; war on historical truth, promoting mythological revisionism; war on immigrants; war on the Islamic world; war on the right to vote; war on racial desegregation; war on National Public Radio and PBS; and finally, war on Barack Obama, claiming he is born in Kenya, is a Muslim, is a Socialist, is a Fascist, and other lies and deceptions to vilify a President worse than anyone since Abraham Lincoln, including even a much vilified President, Richard Nixon.
With this record, they want us to give them power to go backwards on so many social areas, economic policy, and foreign policy. Forward looking people cannot allow this to happen!
