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.

And people like this whack – job will help bring about the end of the world. Trump has some crazy followers.

If this reincarnation of Hitler & Stalin DOES get elected, I’m moving to Canada or Australia / New Zealand. Because America will truly be headed down the u – bend…..

This nut – job & his followers / supporters are just plain old repellent as well as scary as Hell.
I hope his people are in the MINORITY & his chances of getting elected are the same as an ice cube surviving a solar – flare. IF enough Americans are blind / insane enough to vote for him, we might as well wear brown shirts & learn how to goose – step in parades. Scary. I have very little GOOD to say about the Grand Old Party anymore. Fortunately they appear to be destroying each other.
It was bound to happen sooner rather than later, but although everyone knew it was coming it was still a little disconcerting to hear an official Nazi call for idol worship and victory at a political rally for the Republican frontrunner for the party’s presidential nomination.

They’re Fox Faux News. They freak out over B.S. like this. It’s what they’re paid / Pavlovian – conditioned to do.
Does it make a tinker’s damn bit of difference if an official is sworn in on the Koran, Book of Mormon, Darwin’s ” Origin of Species “, one of the Harry Potter books, ” War & Peace ” or, angels & ministers of grace defend us ( & aid us ), a draft of the U.S. Constitution ?
Rupert Murdoch, you’re responsible for this congregation / asylum of Right Wing, nut – job whackaloons, religious right extremists, bigots, xenophobes, hate & fear – mongers. It’s on YOUR hands dripping from your fingertips, buddy. Do something to cleanse the grime & bad karma from your vermin – gnawed, ignorance – peddling soul.

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.”
