There has been much said lately about the problems the GOP have with their primaries. Never have I seen such a field of losing politicians, and I do say that with the knowledge of watching GOP primaries for 30 years. The right-wing has a regular side-show in progress and on center stage they prance out one clown/politician after another. They watch while the crowd adores the hair, the skin color, the "garsh I'm just as dumb and confused as you middle class and independent voters yes golly" patois, they wait for the finale, when the "clownitician" begins to self destruct, then they pass out rotten vegetables and stand back. The crowd goes wild. Then another member of the Republican elite bounces on stage before the former has a chance to fully exit, and the process repeats itself.
The crowd is always the same. Emotional. Easy to second guess, easy to herd and manipulate. Motivated by violence and sex and power, so much so they desire to see superior power used on people who don't look or think like they do and dearly want to see such an act committed with as much SEX and POWER (humiliation - the easiest "class power" to inflict upon those in lesser social/economic stations) as possible. The game gets their juices flowing. Every year the Republican Circus is in session they shriek for action from their heroes, public attacks on the hated enemy of the "left" and reprisals for imagined wrongs they feel the "others" have inflicted upon them. The crowd goes mad on 4 a year cycle and this one is madder than any I have ever seen before.
Never before in my life has it become so obvious the right wing wants violence and hate in our streets. They have huge media success with Fox News right wing propaganda and hatriot radio bloviatorsrs - and their many smaller market emulators - driving fear and hate into American's souls. They have dominated this country for 30 years with policies that have destroyed us and now they know they can not continue as normal - too much has been eaten away. American society has never been so low, so seemingly destroyed from the inside.
So now we get their inevitable gallery of clowns, paraded about, each one sounding like a parody from a bad 1980's sci-fi movie. Their platform is one of MORE of the same, only HARDER, FASTER, STRONGER. They are literally insane if they think American citizens will buy this and by and large they won't, but more disconcerting is the fact that a certain violent, hate filled segment of the right WANTS this message. And then, even that is not enough.
Some Republicans picking a nominee of President will not be satisfied until they find a man who will state a very simple message. The message can be boiled down to one word. Thise far right segment of the Republican party that is now in the driver's seat wants a man with guts to simple call President Obama a nigger on national television (Fox News especially).
They want an offensive cowboy jackass that wants more to fight than fix anything, someone that will ramrod a regressive set of fascist policies that will depend on the mighty blowhards in the ranks of the right to come out of the wordwork and rally around the clownitician. All he has to do is say something like "This nigger in the white house has got to go!" and he will have swooping, instant jack-in-the-box approval and he will sweep the nomination.
That's all folks. That's all it takes. That's all Republicans want. A man that will call our President a nigger in a public or a televised forum and not apologize. That is what today's Republican party has become.
