The Pink Flamingo is terrified of extremes. I see the growing extremism and irrational behavior of the tea parties as just that. It did not start out this way, but it is getting there. The very real problem is the fact that the people involved in the tea parties are failing to weigh the biased information they are receiving from their tin-plated gods like Glenn Beck.
If something is not done to put some of these people in check, and explain the facts of life to them, via American history, we are in for a very terrifying ride, abjectly terrifying. How long will it be before some idiotic tea party twit who is seriously unstable does something like what happened in India over the weekend?
“…I’ve always said I was a Reagan-style conservative. But I don’t think Reagan was a real Republican. He just maintained some shared values….” Glenn Beck
Losertarians are crowing about the nomination of Nikki Haley in South Carolina. She is one of them. They love her. Makes sense. Then there is the idiocy in Idaho, where the Losertarians have taken over the GOP. They’re scary, demanding a repeal of the 17th Amendment.
Are the Tea Parties an off-shoot of the John Birch Society?
The Pink Flamingo thought this might be fun to see what some of the pundits said about the Rand Paul victory. I have repeatedly said Rand Paul will blow a good GOP Senate seat. I continue to say that he will lose. The GOP needs to pull the plug on him.
David Frum wrote:
“..Rand Paul’s victory in the Kentucky Republican primary is obviously a depressing event for those who support strong national defense and rational conservative politics. In another year, such a victory would be a prelude to a Republican defeat in the general election….”
“…’I unequivocally state that I will not support any efforts to repeal the Civil Rights Act of 1964…we are sure to hear more wild, dishonest smears during this campaign,’ Paul campaign statement says…”"…“A free society will abide unofficial, private discrimination,” wrote Paul, “even when that means allowing hate-filled groups to exclude people based on the color of their skin. It is unenlightened and ill-informed to promote discrimination against individuals based on the color of their skin. It is likewise unwise to forget the distinction between public (taxpayer-financed) and private entities.“…” Rand Paul
Like David Frum says, Ron Paul is going to hurt the GOP in November. Then again, that’s the whole point isn’t it?
When Ron Paul was asked about his son’s gaff, this is what happened:
“…Asked by a reporter if Rand Paul’s campaign could “recover” from his comments, Ron Paul said there was nothing to recover from, and the suggestion that there is was “an insult.”
“What does he have to recover from?” Paul said. “Go to Kentucky and talk to the people. He’s just had a referendum; gets 59 percent of the vote and you are talking about recovering? That’s an insult.”
