Another Muslim is murdered in Republikanistan... and of course the crime is ignored by the Right.

And in the Georgia special election, repugnant Republicans are demonizing and blaming liberals for the baseball shooting.

The Washington Post reports one particularly hateful ad on FOX.

-- One conservative outside group, Principled PAC, is even trying to link Ossoff with the shooting in a particularly foul commercial that is airing today on Fox News. A narrator claims, without citing any evidence, that “the unhinged left is endorsing and applauding shooting Republicans.” Over grainy footage of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) being wheeled in a stretcher to an ambulance, a narrator says: “When will it stop? It won’t if Jon Ossoff wins on Tuesday, because the same unhinged leftists cheering last week’s shooting are all backing Jon Ossoff. And if he wins, they win.” The ad, backed up by a five-figure buy, concludes by urging people to vote for Handel: “Stop them. Stop them now.”

This is who they are, people. This is con-servatism.

Goebbels would be proud of his neo-fascist heirs. Just replace "leftists" with "Jews" to see their source of inspiration.

The con-servative Right is fueling hate and tearing our country apart... and blaming liberals... of course. It is what they do and who they are.

Through Fox News® and similarly slanted medium outlets, fascism continues its insidious propagandist creep -- infiltrating the unthinking minds of at least half of our citizenry. "Con-servatism" continues to poison the well, with full knowledge that the hate and lies it spouts will lead to an eventual stranglehold on power. It's very reminiscent of the ascendancy of Hitler's Third Reich. The tactics and strategy are identical.

It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.
― Joseph Goebbels

Yes, Goebbels would be very envious of what today's "con-servatism" has wrought in America in these times. It's his party's propaganda on steroids. The fictitious concept of "alternative facts" would resonate with him.

Good piece, Dave. As usual, you've nailed it.

Dave Dubya: "The con-servative Right is fueling hate and tearing our country apart... and blaming liberals... of course. It is what they do and who they are."

Dave, if this president suggested it, I'm convinced con-servatives would embrace the idea of throwing all liberals, and other like-minded thinking people, into concentration camps. Internment for their opposition is hardwired into their genetic code -- into their amygdala-enlarged brains, as science has proven.

They hinder that which they fear, and will always attempt to slow or make change difficult, and of course they're fearful of anyone who's not exactly like them. Their fight-or-flight mechanism is always in overdrive, which makes their propensity toward violence even more acute. Lies, and they tell some whoppers, are another defense mechanism and attempt to hide their fearfulness.

They are, for lack of a better term, scaredy-cats. ;-)

The fear of others, and change itself, is at the heart of authoritarian con-servatism. Fear fuels anger, suspicion, blame, hate and even violence.

Many of the "Fearful Fourth" of our population feel a need to carry instruments of death out of that fear. I hunted as a young man and am fond of target shooting even now. Never have I felt the fear that makes me want to pack a pistol or keep one at arms reach at the bedside.

So yeah, for a bunch of tough-talking, loud-mouthed, swaggering, "don't tread on me" braggarts, they are delicate crybabies deep down. Authoritarians have a rigid belief system and fear losing control of others. They react out of, and serve, the same deep-seated theocratic fears and resentments as those in ISIS and al-Qaeda, the con-servatives of the Muslim world. It's only a matter of degree. The hate and fear is the same. Western society is only a few score years' evolution ahead of radical Jihadism.

Authoritarianism is the greatest threat to human evolution and, if not restrained, will lead to our extinction.

Aldous Huxley's book "Island" depicts a sane society that understood this reactionary mechanism in human nature and would screen and educate children with bullying tendencies to better understand others and why they react the way the do.

We will never be a sane society under authoritarian minority rule.

Democrats thanks for the Comedy!

The Democrats are now running around like chickens with their heads chopped off.

The shining white hope for the Democrats in the special Georgia-6 election turned out to be a big dud! He had the lead in the polls just like Crooked Hillary lol lol! amirite?

The phoney Russian Collusion story has fizzled out and made the tin foil hat wearing Democrats look like fools.

Now they are blaming Nancy Pelosi for all the losses since 2010 and want her head. Please keep your spot Nancy!, all that botox has eaten a good chunk of your brain you dingbat.

Thanks Dems again for the Comedy!

Democrats may as well run as clowns.

No, Georgia was NOT "just like Crooked Hillary". SHE got 3 million more votes than her opponent. Next year elections will be everywhere, not just Georgia.

Yes, the Russian Collusion story has fizzled FOX and in Republican propaganda. The Russia INVESTIGATION is gaining traction, and MOST Americans support it.

And we all know what most Americans think of Trump and his "mean Trumpcare".

Not to distract you from your topic, but the subject of my post included an ad that meets with your approval, no doubt?
