NOT ALL REPUBLICANS ARE NAZIS-- NOT EVEN ALL INDIANA REPUBLICANS

>

Indiana GOP candidate pledges allegiance to his hero

It would be unfair to tar all Republicans as Nazis. I fondly remember NY Republican Senator Jacob Javits when I was growing up. And John Lindsey was a decent Republican even before he switched parties and became a Democrat. And... I'm sure there are some other decent Republicans, though none seem to show up on TV. Instead we get a steady stream of lunatic fringe thugs like O'Reilly, Hannity, Marsha Blackburn, James Inhofe, and John Cornyn. But if you're a Nazi or a fascist and you want to get involved in politics, chances are you know exactly where your ideas will be taken seriously-- the G.O.P.

Let's take a look at some recent events in Indiana's second congressional district. In 2006 reactionary Democrat Joe Donnelly beat right wing extremist Chris Chocola (54-46%), and then went on to create a record of voting more frequently to rubber stamp the Bush agenda than any other Democrat except 3 truly wretched Dixiecrats-- Jim Marshall (GA), Nick Lampson (TX) and John Barrow (GA). Chocola says Donnelly still isn't far right enough and he's trying to get the seat back. But someone even further right than Donnelly or Chocola-- over the edge attorney Tony Zirkle-- doesn't think either of them is far enough right and he's engaged in a vicious primary battle with Chocola.

So in pursuit of his goal of being the next congressman to represent IN-02 Zirkle chose Hitler's birthday to address a Nazi Party meeting in Chicago. I think Bush and Cheney and McCain should say where they stand on their party's candidate addressing the Nazi faithful. I know, I know... McCain says he doesn't always agree with all the ideas of the people who endorse him. He just likes Zirkle's other ideas, the ones about Jews and African-Americans screwing young white Christian girls in porn films; that's Zirkle's real passion and what has driven him insane and into Republican politics. I thought you might enjoy watching the video of the Republican standing in front of a picture of Hitler on his birthday and making a speech to a roomful of Nazis. In defense of Zirkle, he says he'll speak to any group, not just Nazis. "I'll speak before any group that invites me," Zirkle said Monday. "I've spoken on an African-American radio station in Atlanta." Imagine that! If you've never heard an anti-semite babbling a bunch of vicious anti-semitism, I bet you'll be shocked by this video:

"It would be unfair to tar all Republicans as Nazis."

Who says? I think it's quite fair. And correct.


"I fondly remember NY Republican Senator Jacob Javits when I was growing up."

No offense intended, but that was a while ago. The republican party has changed. Even the arch-conservative and criminal Nixon would be considered liberal and law-abiding compared to this crowd.


"I'm sure there are some other decent Republicans"

Wishful thinking. Seriously, can you name any? I can't.

The last decent republican was kicked out of office years ago. As far as I'm concerned, no respectable human being would call him/herself republican.

"Republican" is synonymous with "evil".

HEIL HOOSIER!

Tony Zirkle is BUGFUCK CRAZY! He's a fly-by-night store-front lawyer in South Bend and he runs with Railton P Loy: Grand High Poobah of Satans Ass-cracKKK. Loy has a KKKompound in near-by Osceola, they used to have a 'shooting range' on the premisis but the county shut them down after neighbors complained about drunk rednecks with harassing them and 'stray shots' fired in the neighborhood. I think Zirkle defended them in court on this and other issues.

This isn't his first campaign for office. He ran for two or three different offices, or at least attempted to, in the '06 election.

I'd pay to see Zirkle and Chocola debate - then post it on youtube under the title: So, you think Texas Republicans are fucked up... just for shit's and giggles.

Between this Zirkle, Mike Pence, Dan Quayle and Michael Jackson, it's hard to admit I'm a Hoosier sometimes.

You are right. The problem is the Dems don't know how to stick the fork in them and turn it. The Dems have a chance to show the American people that they have balls and will stick up for the little guy and they aren't doing it.

Jimmy - The Dems have ALWAYS had the ability to do it. They have always chosen not to.

They simply don't care what "the American people" think. They don't have to; they run the show, and you and I have no say in it.

Maybe it was time that the GOP started to repudiate its ongoing associations with neo-Fascists and their weird and unwholesome ilk.

Preferably when they hold their confab @ Xcel Energy Centre in the Twin Cities this fall.

That, and asking the GOP to Please Explain their subsidy of Fox News--er, Prolefeed....

The Republicans have turned their entire asylum over to the inmates, and now the inmates are pissing in the offices and lighting fires in the bathrooms. Let us take a moment to thank BLOODY JESUS that the Almighty has permitted us to see such times as these: the R. party has rotted away from the inside because of all the poison it has had to swallow. Poison like these knuckleheads. It's so rotten they can't even keep this kind of stuff hidden any more.
