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.
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.
