Republicans’ Lunatic Tea Party Problem: They’re ‘Crazy’ (Video)
April 20, 2011
(ChattahBox Political News)—Carny huckster, birther and reality TV star Donald Trump is now the voice of the GOP. It’s no secret that the Republican Party has gone off the rails. The influence of the radical tea party and a renewed embrace of the paranoid conspiratorial beliefs of the John Birch Society, made new again by Fox News’ Glenn Beck, has spawned new labels for the many categories of 21st century Republican lunatics. Tenthers, birthers, deathers, tea-baggers, Glenn-Beckians. But really, they are the same bigoted far right-wing Birchers promoting the same tired anti-Semitic, Illuminati and New World Order conspiracy theories that nearly destroyed the GOP decades ago.
They’re baaaaack! The last few years, Republican lawmakers have mainstreamed the crazies, and now they are paying the price. Good. You reap what you sow. But with the 2012 presidential election right around the corner, the GOP establishment is trying to distance themselves from the fringe crazies, especially the birthers. It’s too late. A new YouTube video showing a compilation of interviews with South Carolina tea party members, shows just how far off the right-wing cliff Republicans have gone. Nutjobs. They are all nutjobs.
The group NOTSCGOP compiled the video from interviews of attendees at a tea party rally held on Monday in Columbia, South Carolina. Republican Gov. Nikki Haley and tea party queen Rep. Michele Bachman (R-MN) spoke to the small crowd of about 300.
The video of assorted wingnuts is described by NOTSCGOP as representative of a GOP that’s “no longer the Party of Reagan.”
The Republican attendees interviewed all wrongly believe that President Obama is a secret Muslim who was born in Kenya. They also like Donald Trump for president.
‘”Moozlim” is not a religion. It’s a political ideology,” said one woman.
Another woman concluded that there is no cure for the Muslim disease, and Obama has it.
“I think he’s a Muslim,” she said about President Obama.”He spent too many years in Kenya with his stepfather, and once you’re a Muslim I don’t think you can change,” she added.
All of the Republicans interviewed said they got their news from Fox News and Glenn Beck. Fox News has jumped on the birther bandwagon in a big way, by promoting Trump and his bold-faced lies about President Obama’s background.
