right-wing extremism south of the border...

Republicans are frantically trying to get Representative Todd Akin to drop out of the United States Senate race in Missouri after his remark about abortion and rape, but not because it was offensive and ignorant. They’re afraid he might lose and cost them a chance at a Senate majority next year.

    Wake up: It's not just Akin - CNN.com

    Some social conservatives talk of protecting religious freedom, but what they are really seeking is a theocracy that places limits on freedom based on a version of Judeo-Christianity that fits their liking.That language is also being considered for the GOP's national platform. Some speak of fighting abortion because of their religious convictions and then belittle the trauma caused by rape.

    and people laughed when Margaret Atwood wrote The Handmaid's Tale...

    i see what's happening in your country and i honestly fear for the future of women and girls.

    I live here and I fear for the same things! Plus, they talk a lot about religious freedom, but it's only for themselves.

    "...when a 16 year-old white girl takes to Twitter to openly call for the assassination of our President, you have got to wonder where we, as a society, have gone wrong; why we, as a society, have failed; how we, as a society, have allowed hatred to incubate within such a young, malleable mind.

    (...)

    That tweet has been RT'd over 300 times. Over sixty people have marked it as a Favorite. The kid has actually gained followers since she tweeted that."

    a comment on the Daily KOS post about Alyssa Douglas' Tweet:

    Clinton Massie as a school district covers a wide geographic area because it's pretty rural and poor. very poor. It's also extremely right-wing. We are talking full-on Teavangelical cranked up to 11 right-wing crazy.

    (...)

    I can just about guarantee you this misguided youth is merely reflecting what she hears day in and day out at that school by some of her friends and possibly her parents. I can also say, she's likely no real threat either, and is not really the problem. She was just dumb enough to put that #### on twitter. At her school, she will likely be seen as a hero than a villain. If for no other reason other than rattling a few cages by making the post. A number of her teachers likely harbor the same views she does. They likely wont tell the kids this of course, but there will be winks and nods. Some kids will make a few jokes in class and the teacher will slip a half-hidden giggle before coming down on the student. The administration will be terrified of losing funding, they are always terrified of losing funding. She might get suspended, and yes, the secret service will check it out as they always do. But in the end they live in a culture that has convinced itself it is under attack. They believe they are under attack by evil and the methamphetamines and heroin that ravage the community are the result of "liberals" and "outsiders" (read: black people and mexicans). That mentality binds them in a sense. That and football. So when liberals like us start calling and expressing outrage, the community is going to circle its wagons and protect her, because they are under attack just like they knew they always were.

    What Do You Do With a 16-Year-Old Who Calls for the Assassination of Obama?

    Alyssa’s tweet is but a microcosm of what’s wrong with the modern day conservative movement. It’s indicative of what President Clinton said in his DNC speech, “I may often disagree with Republicans, but I never hated them, unlike the hatred displayed by extreme right wing activists towards President Obama.” The relentless hate directed at this President has been out of control from the beginning, led by Sarah Palin during the 2008 election and now being carried out by birther adjacent Mitt Romney, whose constant lies about Obama are meant to drive exactly the kind of racial animus displayed in Alyssa’s tweet.


    After all, what reason could a 16 year old have for wanting a man she doesn’t know and whose policies she surely doesn’t know anything about to die? Yes, I can say with some confidence that she knows nothing of his policies, because I have yet to talk to any conservative – not one – who can accurately portray Obama’s policy stances. Even the most allegedly intellectually astute pundits on the Right are tainted with Foxian distortions and conspiracy theories of his intentions – intentions not reflected in his actual policies. In other words, they are running on fear, and fear is being driven to stir hate, and hate is being used to get out the vote for Republicans who can’t discuss their policies with even a modicum of honesty this go around.

    would you say that's an accurate characterization of the area she lives in, Kilajo?

    Mike O'Neal, Kansas House Speaker, Apologizes For Email, Says He Wasn't Urging Obama's Death

    He wants Michelle Obama to be a widow and the girls to be orphans (I guess he wants Michelle gone too?)

    that happened back in January. O'Neal has announced his "retirement" from public life since that time.

    uh huh....

    Bachmann: ‘We Must Ban Falafel’ in School Lunches | The Daily Currant

    :shock:

    ...falafel is a gateway food," responded Bachmann, "It starts with falafel, then the kids move on to shawarma. After a while they say 'hey this tastes good, I wonder what else comes from Arabia?'

    "Before you know it our children are listening to Muslim music, reading the Koran, and plotting attacks against the homeland."

    I'm pretty sure that's not a real story.

    Sorry, I just saw this. I later looked it up and it's more like 45 minutes from me. I know it's pretty rural, but I don't know if it's poor.

    Most of rural Ohio is far right and christian. Where I grew up, I was one of a handful of democrats. It was a tiny farming community in southern/south central Ohio. I could see someone from there tweeting a similar message and it wouldn't surprise me in the least. This is how some of "my" country folks are. This type of rhetoric won't change in these areas. At least not where I'm from or where I live now. You'd think southern Ohio were the deep south.
