Proof Positive That Republicans Are Marxists

There can no longer be any question that Republicans are Marxists, following sheepishly along behind their leader, Marx, as they put into practice his famous maxim: ‘Whatever it is, I’m against it.’

That would be the Marx with the glasses, the moustache, and the cigar, in the film Horse Feathers.

As for the Republicans’ current campaign of sowing civil discord verging on violence and mayhem, and seeding their mindless adherents with ignorance and lies, that would be a policy more in line with Lenin, or any petty, power-hungry tyrant seeking to overthrow a government by ripping apart the citizenry with tactics befitting con men, liars, and gutter fighters.

  3. I hate it that they act just like the anti war protesters, veterans funeral protesters, cindy sheehan, and pretty much everyone in the liberal media. I agree, lets have some civil discourse and leave the name calling and yelling out of it.

    • Let’s see, the anti-war protesters had a legitimate argument, based in fact, that the Iraq war was based on lies and manipulation by the Republican conservatives. The veteran’s funeral protesters are members of one small rabidly fundamentalist conservative church in the Midwest. Cindy Sheehan organized peaceful protests based on legitimate questions about the war. The media people who do the yelling and shouting and demeaning of people are pretty much confined to the conservative commentators in a media that is largely conservative or middle-of-the-road.

      It’s nice that you agree that civil discourse should rule the debate. But the only legitimate conflation with any of the groups you mentioned is with the fundogelical protesters at veterans’ funerals.

      The people disrupting the health reform meetings are not attending the meetings to learn anything, to ask legitimate questions, to engage in civil discourse, or even to register intelligent or useful protest. They are there, according to the directions from the corporations, lobbyists, and Republican politicians and operators who are deliberately inciting these people with false and misleading information, to disrupt the meetings, period. Their intent is to stop any reform of the current destructive health insurance and health care systems. You’re seeing modern Republicanism at its finest: if you can’t get your way, resort to atavistic know-nothingism and tear down civil society and the structure of law.

    In your opinion that it is…. some people also think there is a legitimate argument against health care take over.

    “to ask legitimate questions, to engage in civil discourse, or even to register intelligent or useful protest”

    I’m pretty sure that is what they think they are doing. Don’t discount them because you disagree.

    “They are there, according to the directions from the corporations, lobbyists, and Republican politicians and operators who are deliberately inciting these people with false and misleading information, to disrupt the meetings, period”

    There is nothing wrong with this…. how do you think anything gets done or voted on in america? How did obama get elected? Your right exactly that way…. that is how politics works. The other point your missing is that these town halls are happening inside of their own district…. it is their own constituents who are rallying.

    • Come on now, they’re not engaging in anything but deliberate disruption and no, not all of these people are actually constituents of those districts.

      Your allusion to Obama deliberately ignored Ric’s last line, “…to disrupt the meetings, period”, unless you have examples where Obama supporters disrupted Republican meetings and/or rallies. Do you have those?

    I agree with you…. and there is nothing wrong with that.

    “Obama supporters disrupting Republican meetings”
    First dont assume you know who they are supporting. Second, I have nothing, I haven’t been to one lately but i’m sure the liberal media wouldn’t cover it the same way.

    How about the gay pride protesters? Or the people who runs conservative speakers off campus? Those are both examples where liberals run people off the stage.
