Anger, sexism, ignorance, threats of violence – all hallmarks of what the modern the modern Republican Party has become.
The Grand Old Party – the GOP – was once known as “the party of Lincoln”, the party that freed the slaves, as some Republicans like to note.
However, the kind of people that were in the Republican Party when things like that happened have long since left that political label behind. What’s left, are people who meet the kinds of criteria listed in a recent episode of The Newsroom:
Think that calling the extremists in the GOP “The American Taliban” is a bit too far? You’re living in fantasyland then.
Remember the key: If you’re pre-born you’re fine. If you’re pre-school? You’re screwed.
Education was once a hallmark issue for the GOP. But as Bill Nye The Science Guy points out, that’s no longer the case anymore. Thanks to the Republican Party, even some of the most basic ideas of science have been thrown overboard.
If you’re still registered as a Republican, and these descriptions make you angry? You have two choices:
- Change who you’re associated with.
- Change your political party.
