It increasingly becomes evident the lunatics have taken control of the Republican Party asylum. During the primaries, people in the audience shouted their pleasure that fellow Americans lacked medical insurance and might die due to inadequate care. Rep. Joe Walsh of Illinois previously told cheering Republicans that his Democratic opponent, Tammy Duckworth, who lost two legs in combat, was simply overplaying her military service. She still has use of two arms, so why should anyone feel sorry for her?
Yesterday, again applauding Republicans greeted his anti-Muslim statement with joy. “There is a radical strand of Islam in this country trying to kill Americans every week.” From Joe’s perspective, Muslims in this country work 24 hours a day, seven days a week trying to kill someone.
Of course, the recent shooting in a Sikh temple was carried out by a nut case who thought Sikhs were Muslims. The shooting in Colorado was carried out by a white Christian. Every school shooting over the past twenty years was carried out by white Christian males. If Joe wants to end this killing, would he propose locking up all white Christians and letting the Muslims and Jews in this country take over??
