I still find it credibility – straining that Martin Luther King, Jr., was a Republican as some people have claimed. Yes, it’s true ( Or at least accepted ) the Republican party favored abolishing slavery, but the Republican party of that period was probably radically different from TODAY’s Republican Party. In fact I’d bet even money on it.
The GOP is the party of the Gulf War, ” hawks “, the one – percent, the crushers of dreams, that could care LESS about the environment, equal rights for all, health care, truth. They seem to care about a Christian Taliban more than the Constitution, & whether or not one is sleeping with someone of the same sex.
Together with the Religious Right, they seem to favor a theocracy with dashes of George Orwell’s ” Big Brother ” mixed in.
Hardly anything Dr. King would approve of.
Despite the Civil Rights Movement, racism is as rampant in America as it was when Dr. King marched and revealed his dream.

You tell him, girl ! Making a good choice of symbols aimed at that deluded fascist nut – case.
Too bad the GOP puts so much weight on division & mindless paranoia. Things could’ve been SO different for them if they embraced unity & sanity.

After this election, or maybe the next one, the Republicans will have to hammer out a lot of dents to their reputation & credibility, even to the handful of Republicans who are moderate & can make decisions without getting their programming from Fox News & the Religious Right ” pundits “.
That’s going to be a fair bunch of maintenance, should they decide to do it.
Either that or the GOP collapses under the weight of a trainload of lies, contradictions, half – truths, paranoia, etc. The GOP has lost touch with the average person. Do they care ?
It is true, Trump is a fascist, but so are Republicans, the Koch brothers, and millions of angry white racist evangelicals and the Tea Party

And THIS is why the Republican Party is doomed. They either lost their collective soul or sold it.
And why we won’t have a Republican president unless this country Loses. Its. Mind. OR the GOP gets a massive overhaul & ” lifestyle – lift “.
Trump, who is running a blatantly racist and xenophobic campaign, holds a double digit lead in the GOP presidential race.

The Republican party has become the party of paranoia, rumor – mongering, obstructions, discord, hate – mongering, xenophobia & just about everything else wrong with the U.S. What’s worse, they depend on the fear, distrust & hatred.
Abraham Lincoln’s ghost is weeping…..
Paul Krugman noted that since Barack Obama was sworn in as President, Republicans and conservatives have done nothing but “warn about imminent catastrophe.”
