Taking Texas And The Nation Back

Republicans Showing Reason? – Oh My!

Posted by bosskitty on May 21, 2007

I have to give the Right Wing Blog “ToTheRight.Org“, credit for recognizing a threat and exposing it.

Sam Brownback Campaign Denies The Holocaust

When we first took U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback and his campaign blogger to task earlier this week, his supporters came back with a strange response about preaching and getting rid of guns. Their latest post shows Brownback should immediately withdraw from the race for the presidency, as Brownback coordinates with this Web site and allows it to campaign on his behalf as his main online presence.

 

The Brownback blog has now issued a long statement declaring Galileo and Albert Einstein to be vile Wiccans and that anyone who believes the universe does not revolve around the Earth is a “Witch Doctor.” Brownback’s quasi-official campaign blog goes on to cite its source for these ridiculous claims: an anti-semitic Web site that denies the Holocaust and alleges modern science is a centuries-old conspiracy by “Jewish mystics.”

Some highlights from Brownback’s favorite “science” Web site:

A few scholarly writings in the last three decades or so of the 20th century dared to challenge another profitable and heretofore untouchable sacred cow, namely, the sacrosanct Holocaust saga. (From an entry on Historical Revisionism)

Finklestein has stepped up to denounce the Holocaust Industry; Gabler has revealed Jewish control of Hollywood from the start; Koestler et al have revealed the Khazar ancestry of modern Jews; (From an entry on Red-shift in light, oddly enough)

The fact Brownback thinks it is good judgment to cite anti-semitic conspiracy theories to attempt to discredit a centuries-old scientific fact shows he would be better off running for president of Afghanistan. If we didn’t know better, we would think Brownback and his campaign staff were some sort of twisted parody of how extreme left-wingers view conservative Republicans; sadly that is not the case.

I am truly hopeful that whatever happens in 2008, this country will make it’s way back to the middle and actually work together. If all parties will reasonably police themselves and present workable candidates who must represent the whole diverse country instead of a specific faction comprising only a ‘fraction’ of the 300+ million Americans whose lives they will represent.

Update!

    How does that old saying go?
    Better to keep quiet and let everyone think you a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. Something like that.
    I hope Brownback stays in the campaign til the bitter end. What better way to expose the lunacy of the right? Of course the downside is with the near death of American education system, the Brownback campaign may actually be able to get people to believe that crap.

    Tough call now that I think about it. 😉

    Now that Fallwell is gone, Brownback may be the most disgusting man on the planet.

    There are several distinguished studies that debunk the DLC-Speak that America (that is, the people of America) is a ‘centrist’ country. Noam Chomsky recently spoke about this, that while we are easily swayed, we are in fact far more Liberal that we are told. Those who push us to the middle, the DLC and The Third Way (to name just two ‘Liberal’ political organizations), are looking for a compliant and lazy population to further their own interests, which are the interests of corporate America.

    I’m not for steering to the middle. Little happens there. The advances in our society have come from Liberal thought and action. Now more than ever, is not the time to play it safe.
    My 2¢

    I envision this political rubber band will snap – the pain will be swift – THEN? We will all dangle in the middle once again. I will feel much more comfortable. Next time someone hopes I live in interesting times, I will slap them silly!

    Chen, “Brownback coordinates with this Web site and allows it to campaign on his behalf as his main online presence.” That tells me all I need to know about this guy.
    Don’t forget, I spent 20 years at NASA helping to make up the science that irritates them and insults their cult beliefs.

    Again, Sorry Chen, I was referencing Blogs4Brownback in the list of creationist sites to view. Brownback still was one of the 3 republicans who raised his hand when asked if anyone believed in creationism. In the ‘about’ for that page is a disclaimer: “a blog dedicated to the election of Senator Samuel Brownback (R-KS) to the Presidency of the United States in November of 2008. We are not affiliated with the Brownback campaign, and our views do not necessarily reflect the views of Senator Brownback.” Thanks for pointing this out. I’d rather be accurate than funny. Although, he still raised his hand …
