Surprise! Some truth slips into the media mainstream from a Republican state Senator and the GOP no longer has room for such truth telling. First, meet State Sen. McCollister and read the original sin, that truth thing: What I am saying though is that the Republican Party is COMPLICIT to obvious racist and immoral activity inside our party. — Senator McCollister (@SenMcCollister) August 5, 2019 Whoa. I am not so sure I could have done it better myself. Though, now that he has been shown the door, one wonders if the average Republican is indeed a racist, certainly seems intolerant of even the suggestion. PLEASE proceed, Senator, and he does, right into Trumpania: We have a Republican president who continually stokes racist fears in his base. He calls certain countries “sh*tholes,” tells women of color to “go back” to where they came from and lies more than he tells the truth. — Senator McCollister (@SenMcCollister) August 5, 2019 Wait, you just now noticed? Okay, ahem, I am going to do nothing but say “Thank you, sir” because when the prodigal son walked in from the dark, Jesus embraced him. Since we are seeking the demise of the Republican party and Trump, the least we can do is do it using “real Christianity” against them. **** And now, the all-too-predictable response from the racist grand old party that ain’t at all grand. John McCollister has been telegraphing for years that he has little if nothing in common with the Republican voters in his district by consistently advocating for higher taxes, restrictions on American’s Second Amendment rights, and pro-abortion lobby,” Nebraska Republican Party Executive Director Ryan Hamilton said in a statement. “His latest false statement about Republicans should come as no surprise to anyone who is paying attention, and we’re happy he has finally shed all pretense of being a conservative.” Please to be fucking off now. “Telegraphing for years”? Right, likely mostly by demonstrating discomfort with racism, and nothing to do with their “higher taxes” stuff or he would have been run out long ago. They are lying again. They are NOT happy that he is ripping the scab off their pretend injury, to butcher a couple of phrases. **** Look, it is oh so easy to be the kewl one and sit back and say: “Yeah, yet he’s still an irredeemable asshole.” To which I say, “Get the hell over yourself.” This is one of the reasons I am parting from Daily “Konsensus” over at the mother ship. I am rather intolerant of the race to purity in “I can out progressive you.” If somehow my embrace of people who open their eyes and declare themselves to be above today’s GOP, who am I to throw a stone? (Man, it is fun finding ways to use Jesus’ actual teachings against the party of pretend Jesus.) This is welcome news. It is also welcome news that somehow, a state senator from Nebraska’s bold stance IS national news. The obvious panic flowing from this otherwise unimportant news (nationally) represents something far bigger. Remember when your parents taught you to avoid and not respond to a bully’s taunts? Remember when your parents’ said “Be Best.” Or something to that effect? Yeah, they did that because a bigger person recognizes that the world is full […]
