On Tuesday, The Pink Flamingo profiled Staff Sgt. Ty Carter, a true American hero if ever there was one. I bring this up to contrast the cowardly cur actions of the Tea Parties, who pretend to wrap themselves in the flag of patriotism. They spew forth platitudes about freedom, and pretend to worship the false gods they have created in the Founding Fathers. They pretend to know all about the Constitution, and liberty but they know nothing about it. I bring up Sgt. Carter because one of the hallmarks of a the extreme right ‘patriots’ elected by the Tea Parties, replacing good men and women who truly understand how this country works, is to cut funding for the VA, assistance to our military, and are truly harming our military. They don’t give a damn about the men and women who have served and are serving our nation. Instead, they do their best to try and destroy truly good and honorable people like Lindsey Graham, who has one of the finest reputations in the Senate when it comes to assisting our men and women in uniform.
Lindsey is being challenged by Richard Cash, a pro-fetus freak. SC State Senator Lee Bright is a Tea Party freak who is an embarrassment to the state. Nancy Mace has at one time owned a questionable libertarian web site that has been known to promote, shall we say, sexually explicit material to which I will not link Like Chip Felkel said of Nancy Mace, she’s just not ready for prime time. The NY Times quotes Bob Woodard, who says Cash has a chance. In other words, Woodard, who was once employed by Lindsey – and no longer is – must be getting some cash from Cash.
Let’s face it Jim DeMint, the Koch Machine Whore is doing everything possible to make Lindsey’s life a living hell. So is Rand Paul. The problem is the fact that Lindsey is reasonable, honest, honorable, and has refused to sell his soul to the Kochs and the Tea Parties, which are one in the same. Mace is a libertarian. Lee Bright isn’t. Richard Cash isn’t going to get very far at all.
Bright wants South Carolina to have its own currency. He even sponsored a bill calling for a study of the creation of a state currency based on gold or silver. He thinks that anyone enforcing Obama Care should spend a year in jail. Like I said, he’s not all that bright. He also:
- High schools should teach students to shoot guns
- Anyone forcing federal health care should get a year in jail
- Banning public funding for abortion in case of rape and incest
- He compared abortion to the slave trade
- Opposed funding for rape crises centers
- SC needs its own currency
- All SC made guns should be exempt from federal safety regulations
- Supports secession
- Opposed Sharia Law
- He believes women should be subservient to men in church and at home
- Was the state chair for Michele Bachmann’s failed POTUS campaign
We don’t need another jerk in office who is affiliated with the Council of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
The Three Far Right Stooges who are after Lindsey are not ready for prime time. Lindsey has the money, and the brains, along with reason and honor. The others are tea partiers. Need we say more?
