The Evil GOP

I’m afraid there’s no other way to accurately describe them. The GOP is evil. Perhaps a light, somewhat passive form of evil, but evil all the same. They serve themselves and their masters, and everybody else can just rot.

It can’t get much more serious than this. War would be more serious than a pandemic, but it would be a hell of a war to kill half a million people in the span of one year, like the pandemic did. And the Republicans basically did nothing.

In many ways, the Republicans did worse than nothing: they actively resisted any common-sense measures to reduce the spread of the virus.

They opened their states early, declared victory, and blamed “illegals” when the virus predictably began to spread more aggressively.

They actively resisted any coordinated nation-wide strategy, which was really the only effective way to fight Covid seriously.

And now, with the advent of a vaccine and millions being inoculated every day, Texas and Mississippi decided to reopen their states without restriction and to do away with the mask mandate…which they were never really enforcing anyway.

Just when things are starting to curve for the better, those assholes toss another monkey wrench into the works for good measure. The malice!

And they’ll blame Biden for the additional deaths, of course.

That’s evil.

I tune into Fox News once in a while to see if they’re still the stupid, lying, Republican propaganda mill that they’ve always been. They are.

Everyone on Fox is shit except for Juan Williams and maybe Donna Brazile (whom we never see)…but the worst of the worst has to be Laura Ingraham. There is a malicious arrogance about the woman that oozes wickedness.

She’s lying, and she knows it, and she thinks it’s funny as hell. She’s constantly telling her audience how badly the Democrats want to ruin their lives. It’s pure demonization, which accounts for half of all Fox News’ content.

And now that we’re trying to pass legislation for Covid relief, what are the Republicans doing? You guessed it, they’re gumming up the works any and every way they can.

They had the temerity to insist that the bill be read aloud on the Senate floor, then they had the audacity to ask if they could adjourn early because they spent the day reading the bill.

Swear to God, if America goes to war, we’re in trouble, because the Republicans have clearly demonstrated that they’re for sale to the highest bidder, and if our enemies outbid us, we’re screwed.
