How seriously do republican voters care about for who they vote? The truth is its hooligan time. They holler when we use words like racist to describe them, but in Iowa in the heart of America, they have elected well known white supremacist Steve King to Congress again this election. He has served because of not their racist views but their enlightened ones for sixteen years and was just voted for two more years. And don’t you dare call him homophobic even if On April 3, 2009, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled unanimously that a state ban on same-sex marriage violated Iowa's constitution. King soon commented that the justices "should resign from their position" and the state legislature "must also enact marriage license residency requirements so that Iowa does not become the gay marriage Mecca." NO he is not homophobic.
The Republicans are not racist even though the party ran ads that were considered too race baiting that even their partner media agency Fox would not run them.
Even the California Republicans show a complete disdain for who they will vote in office. Duncan Hunter Indicted Republican Rep. Duncan D. Hunter, R-Calif., on Tuesday won re-election to a sixth term in the 50th Congressional District. It did not matter he has been indicted in a 47-page indictment outlining how his family spent beyond its means and illegally used campaign funds to support an expensive lifestyle.
Showing no shame, (the no apology Republicans seldom do) claimed the moral high ground by accusing his Palestinian opponent was a security risk because of his Palestinian grandfather's connection to the 1972 Munich massacre. Campa-Najjar was raised by his Mexican-American mother in San Diego and said he had little to do with his Palestinian father. His grandfather was killed by Israeli commandos before he was born. Hunter’s campaign ad claimed his rival, who was given security clearances to work in the Obama administration, is a “security risk.” But he had two things against him: he was part Mexican and Palestinian.
Donald Trump the Grand Master Dragon of the Republicans recently chose the word Nationalist to describe himself. He did this despite the criticism that the word nationalist is used by racists who referred themselves as white nationalists, and neo-Nazis who consider themselves nationalists. The only person who did not criticize him for this choice was David Duke once a Grand Dragon Master of the KKK and probably his boy Stephen King mentioned above.
A white supremacist group is behind a racist and anti-Semitic robocall targeting Florida gubernatorial Democratic candidate who also is black Andrew Gillum. They even extended their robocalls to Oprah and Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. That’s right the Republican party praised by David Duke and a white supremacist group is pushing Republican candidates but do not think for one moment they might be racist.
Hell the Republican voters this election voted A Dead Nevada Brothel owner as their candidate. The candidate was conservative on many issues but was looking at proposing legislature that eased restrictions on brothels. But I am to believe they hold some moral high ground.
And get prepared for the next minority leader of their party: Jim Jordan. Yes, although accused by victims of knowing and not doing anything to stop Ohio State athletes from being sexually abused when he was an assistant coach at Ohio State University is shamelessly running for Minority Leader. And don’t you judge him.
There is more but I do not have the time or pages to identify them for you. The Republicans are now the party with which racists and homophobes feel comfortable. So yes, it is entirely fair to refer to the Republican party as the party of racists and homophobes. If they do not like that label they need to change.
