What is it the far right really have against the Democrats? After extensive time at the Rush Limbaugh Institute, Sean Hannity’s Wreck, Glenn Beck’s wanna be a frat boy until I die show, and even the esteemed lawyer who needs an indoor voice Michael Levine, and a ton of uncensored GOP lawmakers words, I have come up with a few suggestions. From what I can tell freedoms that are made too accessible for outside groups is a big bone with the GOP.
Think about it The Gay agenda. How dare they have an agenda. Agendas are for white heterosexual males only. So what they do is they make gay rights into a nefarious agenda. They are after your children, they want bestiality, they are always recruiting (as we learn from Ellen Degeneres, which is why so many gay folks have toasters).
The dreamers are out to take advantage of our great country. They do not play by the rules. Why do they advocate for their families to be included in an immigration bill. Everyone knows that we would all love to be away from our mothers, fathers, and siblings. The attitude of many conservatives of acting like this is not a normal and even a nefarious wish is strange coming from a party that supposedly promotes family values.
Women who want birth control to be included like Viagra for men in insurance policies are called sluts. All they want is to have more control of their sexual lives just like the men who want no hindrances to their sexual lives. I am for the men having Viagra and control their bodies until their control moves from their bodies to women’s bodies. ‘Abortions should not be allowed because women who want them are loose’ the far right says. But if that is the case why are the far right for no exceptions for rape, incest, and the mother’s health. They say it is about respect for life but even though we now know the death penalty executes many innocent people yet they remain firmly for it. We also know they want a decrease in support for funding for programs for poor children.
It is fear the makes many people uncharitable, one such fear is being afraid to be taken. Other countries treat us like chumps, the one percent pay all the taxes while the poor stay on the public dole. They refuse to do good because what if they are taking advantage of us. Thinking such listen to how they describe the poor Ronald Reagan’s welfare queens, illegal aliens, or the leeches on society. We are afraid of being taken by people different from us white folks. Although there are more whites in welfare programs the usual image created by GOPers is not white. In fact if you think about it the only people who are described as taking advantage of the immigration system by the right are all non-Europeans.
To me it is telling that conservative whites project so much of their own history unto other ethnic groups. Historically it is the Native Americans, Mexicans, Asians, and Africans, who were abused by the white powers of a growing America. So it is the projection or the conservative right we see in their attitudes toward the poor. It is the white nightmare created by a justifiable guilt of an American white history where they have taken advantages of other groups in America to prosper and grow. They are now afraid as these groups gain power that as one person said their chickens may be coming home to roost.
So sadly the far right has the same problems the Germans had with the Jews, the Israelites had with the Samaritans, white South Africans had with the Africans. It is about which group will be in charge. We have few good models in our history with sharing power not only in our history but in our world. So the limiting of freedoms and justice to other groups is their go to mode to prevent the unknown of what a sharing of power would look like. Maybe we should find models of how to share power before we destroy the very fabric of our society.
