A lot of chatter today about John McCain seemingly saving Obamacare. More group think.
John McCain is a RINO (republican in name only). He’s a phony Republican. He’s part of a party that Will McAvoy rightly called “The American Taliban”, that’s out to destroy our freedom and our planet.
A summary of today’s Republican Party is here, in this 5:54 clip from The Newsroom. Will McAvoy talks reality about genuine Republicans (remember them?), the Tea Party, The Founding Fathers and religion, and the disenfranchising of voters.
“What’s more frightening than the perversion of our great history is that sensible, smart, strong Republicans, the very men and women who should be standing up to radical fundamentalism, are so frightened of losing primary battles to religious zealots, that they’ve thrown in the towel on sanity. So we get this (clip of John McCain supporting that America is a Christian nation)”.
“It’s ironic. Because the biggest enemy of the phony Republican isn’t Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Reid, or Hillary Clinton, or Barack Obama. It’s this man (picture of Jesus). He said heal the sick, feed the hungry, care for the weakest among us and always pray in private”.
Will saw Trump coming —
“Ideological Purity. Compromise as weakness. A fundamentalist belief in scriptural literalism. Denying science. Unmoved by facts. Undeterred by new information. A hostile fear of progress. A demonization of education. A need to control women’s bodies. Severe xenophobia. Tribal mentality. Intolerance of dissent. A pathological hatred of US Government”.
“They can call themselves the Tea Party, they can call themselves conservatives. And they can even call themselves Republicans – though Republicans certainly shouldn’t. But we should call them what they are, the American Taliban. And the American Taliban cannot survive if Dorothy Cooper (African American) is allowed to vote”.
Please, god, bring us Will McAvoy. He’s the President we so need right now.
