Odd, isn’t it?
That the GOPs, so hot to trot over smearing an American soldier, an American president and Americans in general, who don’t believe ANYTHING that they’re not told by Faux Nooz, suddenly grant total credibility (and even tacit cheers) to a Taliban “commander” opportunistically claiming to speak for all Taliban and threatening something they’ve never actually accomplished:
A Taliban commander close to the negotiations over the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told TIME Thursday that the deal made to secure Bergdahl’s release has made it more appealing for fighters to capture American soldiers and other high-value targets…
How convenient. For the GOPs, that is.
I guess it comes down to the old mafia dictum: the enemy of my enemy is my friend, as in now the GOPs are the friends of the Taliban and all but openly hope that they carry out their bray. Because they hate Americans and our American president more than those who abetted 9-11. They even cheer for them.
At the end, they have nothing: no morality, no ethics, no policy.
The Party of Lincoln has ceased to be
Just hate, bigotry and, now, treason (if you don’t count bankrupting the country on a “war of choice” which is a war crime).
Oh, and those twin favorite of demagogues, madmen and dictators throughout human history: fear and dread. (Hey GOPs! Phobos/Deimos ’16!)
Oliver North (sold weapons to Iran and funded the Contras via a Swiss bank account with the proceeds) and Dick Cheney (war criminal, crimes against humanity, war profiteer, asshole) are both put front and center and given absolute credence to spew their vomitous drivel.
Way to go GOPs.
Please hurry up and engage in armed insurrection. My trigger finger is getting itchy.
Hey GOPs: even Nazi idiots think you’re idiots.
