“Conservative” dupes for “Christian” dominionism like to call themselves patriots. Yeah, they are patriots the same way Germans who cheered Hitler, and Russians who bowed to the Soviet State, were patriots. They are sheep. And in their mindless plod toward slaughter, they would have us all join them.
Right now, on Gay Patriot, the loyal minions are tarring and feathering frequent commenter Sonicfrog. Who has – horrors! – committed the heresy of expressing skepticism about the Tea Party’s aims.
Only a couple of years ago, a Tea Party chapter in Chandler, Arizona invited a speaker who’d gone on public record as demanding the death penalty for all gays and lesbians. The reason for their invitation, it was true, had nothing to do with gays. He claimed to have been beaten up by Mexican border guards.
Hundreds of people cross that border every day. If this kook was telling the truth, couldn’t someone else – and yeah, I mean even one other person – have been found to speak for the Tea Party? One who’d say pretty much the same thing?
Yeah, I’d believe somebody nutty enough to demand the death penalty for millions of innocent Americans. What the hell is wrong with these people? How can this slobbering fiend from Hell possibly be considered a reliable source of information on ANY subject?
Anyone who would ever say that all gays and lesbians should be executed is a monster. A potential Hitler. And any organization that would invite him to speak as a sympathetic source of information is diseased.
The Tea Party started out with fine intentions. I enthusiastically supported their efforts early on. But the movement has, since then, degenerated into a nest of pseudo-Christian dominionist lunacy.
No true Christian, nor any human being with one iota of decency, can support an organization that knowingly elevates to a position of authority a monster who calls for the murder of innocent people.
We keep commemorating the Holocaust, and crying “Never again!” And then we show that we have learned absolutely nothing. Right-wingers who mindlessly and unquestioningly support an organization with as little moral sense as today’s Tea Party are the heirs of the German people who cheered for Hitler.
And yes, I went there. Deal with it.
In the headline, I have corrected the spelling of “Sieg.” I’m a German. I need to spell the words right!
