By now, anyone with a brain in their head knows that someone who uses the term “RINO” to denigrate our good Republicans like Lindsey or John McCain is NOT a Republican. I have titled the post “Are “RINO” Hunters from Hell”? The reason I ask is they certainly do not come from the GOP.
The Pink Flamingo is tired of writing about Barack Obama and the Dems. What’s the use? When you’re dealing with an Administration where Homeland Security spends more time verifying and vetting good people who are trying to adopt Haitian orphans than they do terror suspects, why bother!
This is about The Agenda of No and how it is doomed to fail.
This is about a bunch of people who are so pathetic, so ignorant, and so self-righteous, and think they are smarter than they actually are, that they could insure a sure thing in November becomes a tragic loss for our country, then again – maybe that is their plan all along. If the Tea Party Twits and Ron Paul Bots truly cared about this country and not their stupid agenda of immature, childish, juvenile, and pathetic purity and tilting at windmills, they would shut up and let the adults do what they need to do to save the country. The problem is these people are incapable of doing this. They are so stuck on stupid and so stuck on themselves and their fearless leader who wants to do away with the Fed, wallow with racists, and dump the CIA, that they are incapable of rational behavior.
People like this should be forced to sit down, shut up, and force fed the Book of Proverbs to try and get them to listen to a little wisdom!
Yea, The Pink Flamingo has NOTHING but contempt for them. They are spoilers, destroyers, and should be marginalized as soon as possible.
Are Ron Paul Bots, Glenn BeckBots, (some) Tea Party “patriots”, and some of the extremes of the “right” who are damning good Republicans like Lindsey, John McCain, etc as RINOS actually Dem Operatives? The guys at Hillbuzz are on to something – really big.
In fact, the Dems plan to use the Tea Party Twits to destroy the GOP’s chances of a big win in November.
“...“Given the pressure Republican candidates feel from the extreme right in their party, there is a critical — yet time-sensitive — opportunity for Democratic candidates,” the DSCC writes. “We have a finite window when Republicans candidates will feel susceptible to the extremists in their party. Given the urgent nature of this dynamic, we suggest an aggressive effort to get your opponents on the record.” …”
One thing you NEVER hear a real Republican call other Republicans “RINO”. Real Republicans know that Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment is “Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican”. Real Republicans do not denigrate their own this way. The only people you really see cursing “RINOS” are libertarians, extreme far right non-Republicans and people who pretend to be Republicans.
Show me a Republican who does this and claims to be a Republican and I will show you someone telling a rank and filthy lie. It is time we Republicans start calling these people down and forcing them to admit they are either not Republicans or are Libertarians or extreme far right twits pretending to be Republicans.
I think when we finally get to the bottom of the whole “RINO” thing, we are going to discover that we are dealing with Dem trolls and the stupid Ron Paul Bots and idiot Tea Party Twits who are being manipulated by them. The whole point is to destroy good Republicans who have a future and are trying to truly help the country.
Fact is, from a few things The Pink Flamingo read Tuesday evening, there is no way honorable Republicans would even utter or manipulate some of the lies these so called “conservatives” and “patriots” are telling. Fact is, they are spreading the very same lies that are being promoted by the Dems.
I think not!
Right now, the way The Pink Flamingo sees it, anyone who hurls the epitaph “RINO” at someone like Lindsey, John McCain, or our other Republicans is NOT a Republican and is the enemy, just as much, even more so than a Dem. At least they are out in the open, not slithering around like a nasty snake pretending to be something they are not.
Now Sarah Palin is in their cross-hairs because she keeps her word, behaves with honor, and doesn’t lie. These idiots what her to go back on her word and betray John McCain. To me that says all we need to know about the extreme far right and the Tea Party Twits. They don’t give a rip about doing what is right, only what is pure. When you start doing what is pure over what is “right”, you end up destroying lives. They would know this if they knew their history, but they are too self-righteous and too ignorant to actually read anything that has not been authored by Ron Paul.
RON PAUL BOT TAKE-OVERS
The Pink Flamingo has a source in Oklahoma who keeps telling me how the GOP there is fighting a pitched battle against the same take-over Ron Paul Bots are staging in South Carolina.
Adam Fogel has the following information about the ongoing Ron Paul Bot hit on Lindsey in SC. Ron Paul Bots Talbert Black, who was instrumental in the Lexington County censure of Lindsey is parading around SC with another Ron Paul Bot named Brian Frank. They are trying to destroy Lindsey. Thing is, Frank has been known to work for Bob Conley, a Democrat Ron Paul Bot or two in his life-time. Black hadn’t voted GOP in ages, but is now on the Lexington County Executive Committee.
“…Of course, Black doesn’t care much about the GOP brand. He himself proudly boasts that he isn’t even a Republican. “I decided many years ago to never compromise my vote (lesser of two evils),” Black wrote in a brief biography of himself. “Since then, I have never voted for a Republican nor a Democratic party candidate for president.” With Black’s help, Frank has offered a similar resolution in Cherokee County to censure Graham. Frank, who worked for wingnut Democrat Bob Conley’s U.S. Senate race last year, is quite a character.
In November 2007 he cut this video on his MySpace page where he appears with his creepy Ron Paul shirt and hat in front of an upside down American flag. That was briefly before he became a delegate from South Carolina to the 2009 Continental Congress — you know, like Washington, Jefferson and Adams — and launched a tour to heckle Graham at every possible occasion….”
If you want to know how vicious and nasty Ron Paul Bots are, read the comments left at the bottom of the Palmetto Scoop article. They are all the same. They are nothing but TROLLS.
The extreme Non-Republican far right, Ron Paul Bot, Beckhead, Tea Partiers are attempting to usurp and control the GOP agenda, primarily to destroy the GOP. Lead by admitted NON-REPUBLICANS like Beck, O’Reilly, Hannity, and a host of extreme far right bloggers, they are oblivious to the fact that the US is a center-right nation. The GOP cannot win with their agenda. We’ve never been able to win. The last three BIG WINS were due to the moderation of the extreme right agenda, and common sense, NORMAL Republican values.
The Republican Party has ALWAYS been Big Tent, even when Reagan was in office. The far right extremes that are NOT REPUBLICAN are attempting to call the shots for the GOP the way the far left has destroyed the DEMS. In more reasonable days, Ronald Reagan would do the whole Prodigal Son thing if someone like Joe Lieberman wanted to change parties. The Pink Flamingo would vote for a Lieberman in a moment, but a Hayworth – never!
It’s like John Fund wrote in the WSJ’s Political Diary on Tuesday, the Tea Party Twits have hoisted themselves on their own petard when it comes to supporting J. D. Hayworth over John McCain. McCain, whom they despise, is far more conservative than Hayworth. Problems is the Tea Party Twits and the far right don’t have an intellectually honest bone in their whole self-righteous, pompous, constitutionally incorrect brains.
“…”I’m giving Arizona Republicans a clear choice between a consistent, common-sense conservative . . . or someone who describes himself as a maverick, but is a moderate,” he (J. D. Hayworth) told the Washington Times yesterday. He pointed to Mr. McCain’s votes in favor of the $700 billion Wall Street bailout and his opposition to interrogation techniques used on terrorist detainees. No doubt Mr. Hayworth will also focus on Mr. McCain’s immigration policies, including his 2005 bill that combined amnesty with a new guest worker program.
But Mr. McCain will be showcasing his own grass-roots bona fides by bringing in former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, his 2008 running mate, to campaign for him on March 26. Massachusetts Sen.-elect Scott Brown is also scheduled for a campaign appearance. And Mr. McCain also has a lot of ammunition to use against Mr. Hayworth.
The outspoken former congressman may have talked a good game when he was in the House. But when it came to federal spending he — more than Mr. McCain — was an “enabler” of questionable budget items. It was Mr. Hayworth, not Mr. McCain, who voted for a 2003 prescription drug benefit that added enormously to the nation’s future liabilities. It was Mr. Hayworth who voted for bloated farm and highway bills, while Mr. McCain opposed them. It was Mr. Hayworth who was a consistent seeker and supporter of pork-barrel Congressional earmarks. Mr. McCain, on the other hand, never requested earmarks in appropriations bills and often led a crusade against those he felt were improperly slipped into bills.
All of this will make for a lively Republican primary and national political reporters can be counted on to portray the race as a moderate veteran against a “Tea Party” upstart. But the reality is a lot more complicated. Let’s just say either man would have trouble convincing Barry Goldwater, Arizona’s nonpareil conservative, that he was Goldwater’s true heir….”
BEING AGAINST SOMETHING CAN’T WIN
On Sunday, Fr. Penn had one of the finest sermons I’ve ever heard. One of his talking points was about the problems within the Episcopal Church and the Anglican splinter groups who are disgusted with the Episcopal Church because they are against homosexuals in the church. This is NOT a discussion about the role of homosexuals in the Episcopal Church. Frankly I am sick and tired of the way so-called “Godly” conservatives constantly slam the Episcopal Church. Get a life and go look in the mirror.
Tea Party “patriots”, Ron Paul Bots, Libertarians, and BeckBots are all swimming upstream with a losing agenda. They have a losing agenda because they are against everything but are for nothing.
Do you ever hear any of these people offer up anything positive?
THE CONSTITUTION CANARD
One way to tell when someone is NOT a Republican is when they start talking “Constitution”. Republicans aren’ that stupid and do not pretend they know everything. The run of the mill Ron Paul Bot thinks just because they finally stopped to read the Constitution, they know everything, when they are simply ignorant, pathetic, and poorly read little slugs.
THE TEA PARTY TWITS
The Pink Flamingo is not against the whole tea party thing. I am against the fact that irrational idiots get to shoot off their moronic mouths and make fools of themselves and damage the GOP.
I rest my case with the following, written by some tea party twit out of SC. I just hope one day this person runs afoul of Michael Medved and he eviscerates her self-righteous stupidity.
“…He did not offer any suggestions for bringing any change to practices within the party process to insure that we can keep RHINOS from ever getting back into public office. After 20 minutes or so of this I stood up and told him that I was not interested in protecting the “Republican brand”. I mentioned that American Conservative Union has scored both Lindsey Graham and Bob Inglis in the 89-84% conservative range and that I did not consider them true conservatives. http://www.acuratings.org/. I am not interested in reinvesting in a status-quo party that has failed the average American citizen for many years now, but I am interested in re-energizing freedom, liberty and pro free market based policies based on the Constitution and accountable to the American people….”
It is a divide and conquer thing designed to destroy GOP prospects this November. In Tuesdays WSJ Political Diary, John Fund wrote:
“…Robert Menendez, the New Jersey Democrat who chairs his party’s Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, will issue a memo today launching his plan to minimize those losses. At its core his plan seeks to divide the Republican Party: “We have a finite window when Republicans candidates will feel susceptible to the extremists in their party. Given the urgent nature of this dynamic, we suggest an aggressive effort to get your opponents on the record.” The memo goes on to list a series of “gotcha” questions it urges Democrats to force their prospective GOP opponents to answer:
“Do you believe that Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen? Do you think the 10th Amendment bars Congress from issuing regulations like minimum health care coverage standards? Do you think programs like Social Security and Medicare represent socialism and should never have been created in the first place? Do you think President Obama is a socialist? Do you think America should return to a gold standard?”
Politico.com reports that the idea here is that “Tea Party” activists could be informed about any Republican who answers “no” to any of the questions, in hopes activists would “turn up the heat” and possibly force GOP candidates into embarrassing retreats in order to placate “extremist” elements in the GOP.
I’m dubious the strategy will work. While Republican Rep. Mark Kirk did retreat from his vote in favor of cap-and-trade climate legislation after he announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate, Mr. Kirk’s backtracking largely grew out of collapsing public support for fighting global warming rather than “Tea Party” pressure. If Massachusetts showed anything, both moderate Republicans and “Tea Party” activists were so scared of President Obama’s agenda that they are likely to keep their internal divisions buried in the fall. “Obama lurched so far to the left that all the fire is being concentrated on him for now,” says GOP pollster John McLaughlin. “I don’t see Republicans forming a circular firing squad when they are enjoying watching Democrats have their own after Massachusetts.”…”
