So, Kathleen Parker has determined that getting rid of social conservatives and shelving the values they fight for is the solution to what ails the Republican Party (“Giving Up on God,” Nov. 19). Isn’t that a little like Benedict Arnold handing George Washington a battle plan to win the Revolution?
Whatever she once was, Ms. Parker is certainly not a conservative anymore, having apparently realized it’s a lot easier to be popular among your journalistic peers when your keyboard tilts to the left. She writes that “armband religion” — those of us who “wear our faith on our sleeve,” I suppose, or is it meant to compare socially conservative Christians to Nazis? — is “killing the Republican Party.” Lest readers miss the point, she literally spells it out. The GOP’s big problem? G-O-D.
I'm not calling James Dobson crap on this article, I'm calling Kathleen Parker crap. Get rid of the social cons? What else should we do Mrs. Parker? Get rid of our demands for smaller government as well?Listen, for the past eight years we conservatives have had the "moderates" telling us what we needed to do in order to win elections. Do this. Get rid of that. Don't be so far to the Right.
Hows that working out for ya? Half the "moderates" of the Republican Party jumped ship, after the Republican party did what they wanted it to do!
Fuck. Them. Fuck them all to hell. Fuck them sideways with a chainsaw, fuck them up a tree with a pruning hook. Fuck off, Mrs. Parker. Fuck off, Chris Buckley. Fuck off, Colin Powell. Loved ya as a general, but your political leanings should not in any way influence conservatives.
These "moderates", these fair-weather conservatives, these DEMOCRAT LITE, should lose any and all say they had in the Republican Party. They're done. They have failed.
They FAILED. They have FAILED so utterly and horribly that a radical Left Communist has just been elected to be President. That is a failure on par with the Hindenburg's last flight. That is a failure on par to the current Detroit Lions football team. That is a failure on par to Benedict Arnold saying "Hey, why don't I switch sides right now?" That is a failure on par to Ishtar. That is a failure on par to the captain of the Titanic asking "Iceburg? What iceburg?"
So all these people who've been yanking the Republican Party to the Left can kiss my ass. We have all seen what happens when the Republicans try to be moderate. If that's not a repudiation of moderate conservatism, I don't know what is. Piss off, Mrs. Parker.
