If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and hates immigrants, gays and people of color then what you have is a Republican duck.

Margaret, once again I find myself stating the obvious – of course the KKK is a part of the Republican base.  Are Republicans really trying to suddenly be outraged by that?  When you hate immigrants, hate gays, question the patriotism of the first black President, use war to solve all your problems… Well hell, Margaret, I could have just used those exact same words to actually describe the KKK rather than the current Republican party.

The entire Republican leadership is culpable for the rise of Trump.  For years they have suppressed minority voters, denied rights to gays, and vilified immigrants.  How in the hell can the party of Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms, Joe Arpaio, Jan Brewer, Sarah Palin, Paul LePage, Mike Huckabee, Jason Rapert, Jon Hubbard, Loy Mauch, Bob McDonnell, Haley Barbour, Jeff Sessions,  Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, George Allen, … suddenly be offended by Donald Trump?  Hell, the list of racist, homophobic, immigrant-hating Republican politicians is so long, I haven’t even scratched the surface.  And who do you think voted them into office?

The numbers speak for themselves.

The KKK thinks Obama is a Muslim.

Almost half of the Republican Party thinks Obama is a Muslim.

The KKK is anti-immigration.

 A majority of Republicans support a ban on all Muslim immigration and over half support an increase in the deportation of Mexican immigrants.

The KKK promotes hate crimes against homosexuals and is adamantly opposed to same sex marriage.

Almost 2/3 of Republicans do not agree with the Supreme Court’s decision to allow same sex marriage.

The KKK believes African Americans are second class citizens.

Republican controlled state houses have systemically passed laws to suppress the African American vote.

The KKK, small as it is, seems to do best in the Deep South where Republicans do best.  Coincidence?  Oh honey, bless your heart.  I have lived most of my life next door to women who cook and think like Paula Deen.

The Republican leadership can wish all it wants that Donald Trump isn’t their front runner, but in reality they can put wishes in their right hand and shit in their left hand and I promise you that the left one will always  fill up first. If they thought Donald Trump was electable the GOP would be blaming CNN for a faulty earpiece.

In truth, for the first time in my life I have enjoyed watching a few minutes of Fox News.  Those folks are so bent out of shape over this they could kiss their own behind while enjoying the sunshine on their face.  If Bill O’Reilly and company were to be totally honest, they aren’t quite sure what to do right now considering the KKK is probably a ratings point or two for the network.

I have no problem saying what the journalists seem unwilling to say. Until GOP voters demand that the party change its platform, to be a Republican today means you have more in common with the KKK than you probably care to admit. 

Donald Trump was endorsed by a legitimate portion of the Republican base and the party leaders are upset that their little secret got out. I mean it.  Really.

The GOP governor of Alabama is being impeached on the grounds of financial trickery-rockery with state money spent on burner phones used to contact his inamorata who has already resigned. I think the latter might be classified as a shock wave. Who would have thought the state legislature had that thing called a spine.

  24. Hi Gato!
    You know, Sarah Palin is the perfect spokesperson for Trump. The incomprehensible word salad they spew makes an equal amount of sense. Trump’s recent “thoughts” about allowing South Korea and Japan to get nuclear weapons makes him very dangerous. He does not understand many things, but that doesn’t prevent him from pretending he’s an expert. His candidacy is truly a low point for presidential politics. However, I am hoping he gets the GOP nomination since his negatives are so high and therefore Hillary or Bernie will wipe the floor with him.

  32. Cynthia, congrats on your cousin! That knowledge alone will be a big help if you choose The Big North. I flipped Costa Rica around in my thoughts for awhile, but frankly, I wonder what a country the size of West Virginia would be able to pull out of its hat when under abnormal pressure, say like when the country loses most of its coastline due to increasing sea levels due to climate change. I am also rather tied to four seasons. The cold in Canada does not bother me as much as the soggy cold and wet snow in the winter where i presently live below the Mason Dixon line. I am also very favorable to the national health care in Canada and the poise Canadians have whenever under pressure. Canada also has mountain ranges east and west that would work for me if ocean levels do away with anything in the Atlantic provinces or Hudson Bay. Plus, you know, all those cousins all over the place.

And what politi-hos would actually DO that?

    Cruz is not one lick “better” than He, Trump, IMHO. In fact, he may be worse, because he actually BELIEVES, apparently, that he is divinely ordained to be in charge. I often have the feeling that Trump just likes all the attention and has no interest whatsoever in actually being Pres. (I could be foolishly wrong, of course.)

  41. Hi Gato,
    You’re right. Trump doesn’t shake hands (a germaphobe I think) You usually only see him surrounded by body guards who are escorting him to and from either a limo or his airplane. Mingling with the masses is not to his liking. He’s most at home in front of a podium or tweeting insults to journalists or anyone who he envies or who he thinks has crossed him. He’s a very small, petty person with the grandiose notion that he’s better than everyone else. I think what his supporters really respond to is the permission he gives for them to vent their prejudices and resentment of people who are different from them–all done in the cause of rebelling against “political correctness.” It’s pretty ugly.

    Has there ever been a less frightening group of TV personae than this bunch? (I will give Megyn a bit of credit, actually.)

    I am now trying to recall ever having seen He, Trump, working a rope line, or actually shaking hands with people, being amongst people, visiting a homeless shelter, or picking up a child. In a coffee shop? Visiting a bookstore? (Hell; he won’t even appear in person 90% of the time on the Sunday Showz; he just calls in…) Have we seen him anywhere other than behind a podium, hollering “Get ’em out”?

    Have we ever seen him dishing out meals at a soup kitchen? Visiting some of those vets he theoretically so supports? Even WALKING DOWN A STREET and saying hello to people, for god’s sake?

    When we look at what POTUS and FLOTUS have done these years to reach out to people, of all sorts, in so many ways, and to welcome them, and then look at… He, Trump… HTG, I gotta wonder WTF people could possibly be thinking…

    But He, Trump, is selling something to his supporters that they very much want – and that’s a belief in their greatness, in their uniqueness, and in feeling proud to be Americans. And no one can, or should, tell anyone not to want that.

    It’s what we all want; we just approach it in different ways.

    Getting an out-of-the-US perspective on our recent politics has been… Shall we say?… Enlightening. And yes, it’s the GOP, and, specifically, the Donald Person, who is scaring the beejeezus out of everyone – and rightfully so.

    There is nothing funny about any of this. This is not “reality TV.”

    I think it’s the POTUS’ duty to appoint someone to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court. ASAP. Period.

    Just chiming in here, after an almost inexcusable absence…

    Many thanks to all the Sitters who’ve held the Porch! (Including you, UAW.)

  80. OK, so I am the queen of re-iteration, but here goes. My grandmother came from German stock. When Herr Hitler was getting into Poland and Czechoslovakia, et al. the Nazis were here in the U.S. and calling themselves the American Bund (among other things). They were brown shirted and such and strutting their brutality at various public gatherings complete with the Nazi salute. They even came after people like my grandmother for her money. She blew them off very decisively and then had tea with her best friend, a Jewish widow. Oddly enough, these thugs did not beat her up like they did some other people who resisted them. They simply went to the next woman on their list who had a lot more money. And yes I freaked out when I saw something at a Trump rally that came even slightly close to what my granny experienced! The bund kind of went up in smoke when this country jumped into World War II with both feet. Now there are those who defend Trump and the arm raising. Do these defenders know that Trump is highly fond of a book of Hitler’s speeches? As his first ex-wife, Ivanna! People who refuse to study history are gonna hate like hell to repeat it. And I damn well mean it!

    This Is Why Donald Trump
    Sounds and Acts Like Hitler

    It is not like it was a secret that Trump’s hateful speeches, and more troubling, his policy proposals are very close to those instituted in Nazi Germany; even some conservatives have cited his “fascism.” However, the idea that he has studied, at least since prior to 1990, a book of speeches Hitler used in his rise to power should put an end to complaints about comparing him to Hitler or Godwin’s law.

    The not surprising revelation is that prior to becoming a World Wrestling Entertainment or reality show celebrity, Trump kept a volume of Hitler’s speeches close at hand. Donald Trump’s ex-wife Ivana related in a 1990 interview with Vanity Fair that “from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed.” Trump confirmed that the former Mrs. Trump’s 1990 assertion is true.

    Yeah, I’m sure he keeps it right next to the Buybull. 😉

Their bullying attitudes, especially in the workplace bothers me, a lot. That is why they have taken a liking to Trump, they are just like him in so many ways.

    You have hung in there a long time and I am inspired that you were able to do so, without coming to blows with the bullies. Maybe your colleague with the son on Obamacare will think things through and consider voting for a democrat, who, once elected will improve on the ACA or Obamacare.

  109. Boy oh Boy, where to start? I live in Texas. Most everybody I know is Republican so radically much that I’m kind of afraid to admit I am an old liberal Democrat. Mostly I stay in the closet. No bumper on my car for Ms. Clinton, I do not want my car keyed. No signs in front of my house, don’t want it burned down. In Texas it is really bad now. I laughed out loud last night. I think if the Repugs keep on voting for Trump, all of the talking heads on Fox… well, their heads might explode. I work with a man who is one of the world’s most offensive bullies. So conservative that we almost cannot have a civil conversation. We had many yelling fights over Obama care when it was being created. Supposed to be the end of the world in his opinion. Now I can kind of gig him some. When his kid got out of college and could not find a job, guess who coached the kid to call and investigate and purchase his own Obama health insurance policy. Underwritten of course cause the kid was just working at a wine joint for a pittance. $37/mo. Yep! Still. Mr. Conservative’s kid has Obama care. Bet he has not admitted that over at the country club with his pals every day for lunch. You know, the club that does not allow women to play on the course with men. That one. So, going forward a couple of years, his birthday was Tuesday. I asked if he had applied for his social security ENTITLEMENT. Though he is still working, of course he did. And, has been on Medicare for a couple of years too. He entered my office last week saying Damn, girl, who are you going to vote for? I replied that by the look on his face, I was not going to say. He finally blurted out that he just may not be able to vote. Trump, Cruz, Rubio- all of em nutsy. Especially Trump. His party has let him down he said. I thought his head might explode! You made your bed, Dude, gotta sleep in it now.

    You know, I’ve been the only woman in big old bidness meetings many times in my life. I’ve been so irrelevant to their conversation and decisions, they address their questions or comments only to each other, like I am not even there. Overlook me when they look around the room even. I’m old now but still work. One of them told me one time that I make too much money to be a Democrat!! Geez. I have finally reached the executive level after 50 years of work. I will not allow them to ignore me. I will not allow them to speak down to me. Lots of times though, there is such a competition among them, I just want to tell them all…”Go ahead and unzip boys, flop em out on the table, we can all see who has the biggest dick and get this over with!”. Ha! But that is a subject I never expected to see discussed on national TV in a Primary election. Then there he was. Rubio talking to a crowd of people asking them if they ever noticed how little Trump’s hands are. Then he said, I swear…” You know what they say, small hands, small ___” It is like a school yard brawl. Talking about each other’s dicks. I wish their heads would explode. Either of them.

  151. I really thought only a tiny faction of society was supportive of Trump, but I keep hearing more and more people say they love his “honesty” and want to see him as president. Apparently, to many people, sharing whatever thought pops into your head, no matter how vile or UNTRUE it is, should be considered a positive character attribute.

  154. I have always been amazed that average working class voters could ever believe voting Republican was beneficial. But they seem to buy the Republican lie that all the problems in this country are the direct results of Blacks, Immigrants, Muslims, Homosexuals, Pro-Choice advocates and any other groups that has the brains to think for themselves. It is the same way Hitler demonized the Jews and other non-Aryans. Sounds like Fascism to me. They made their own bed and now they have to sleep in it.

  156. Well said. This elder White guy on the Left Coast is chuckling at the what will be a stampede of GOPers publically regretting ever supporting any of their cast of clowns.

  158. The GOP and Donald Trump and all their supporters are disgracing this country. I have never seen anything like this and it is disheartening, embarrassing, and alarming.

  159. Trump will change his talking points to win over democrats once he wins the republican nomination. He has no integrity on his policies, he just knows what people want to hear. This is what worries me the most.
