Romney's Right Wing Racist Supporters: Palin's RACIST Attacks Against Our President by Immigration Talk With A Mexican American,Oct. 24, 2012

In a Facebook post today, Palin wrote: “Obama’s Shuck and Jive Ends With Benghazi Lies.” She also used the term in the text of the post, which concludes, “President Obama’s shuck and jive shtick with these Benghazi lies must end.”

As we all know, the term "Shuck and Jive" originated in the Slavery Days when Black Slaves were tasked by their Masters to dance as they harvested crops.

What a despicable and racist term to use by a Romney supporter.

And below is a little video which we have put together on the extremist views of the Religious Right in the USA and how they have been working towards a truly Christianized America a thocratic form of government or something quites close to it .From pr-school (Jesus Campp) the indoctrination into this extremist Christian view of the world continues with outreach ministries to America's teenagers (BattleCry!/The Call etc.) to American soldiers undergoing bootcamp training (US Military Chaplaincy )to University students at Christian Universities to the leaders and legislators and bureucrats in the US government including the higher and highest ranking officers at the Pentagon (Chistian Embassy).

What they wish to accomplish is Dominion over all aspects of American society and to replace in their view the "Secular Humanists" who are the enemy who now control American society , culture and government . And who are these "Secular Humanists " they are all those who do not adhere to the Religious Rights uberconservative brand of Christianity which is a belief in America as a Christian nation which has the right to impose their values on all Americans and on the rest of the world. After some forty years they now have a death grip on the Republican party. They may at times have receded from view but that does not and did not mean they had been defeated but rather were forced to retreat and regroup and develoop better tactics for accomplishing their goals. They have been underestimated in their strengths and their convictions their ability to recreate their grass roots organizations to adapt and survive again and again . They should not be written off as a group of semi-literate buffoons they are a clear and present danger to American society . What others see as positive progress the Religious Right sees as the undermining and destruction of traditional Christian America.

Hopefully the video is somewhat entertaining and enlightening and not too heavy-handed.

ChristianTaliban Global Crusaders Unleashed

(Note originally we referred to the vlogger in the video below as Lis Graas when in fact the speaker in this video is Zinnia Jones,Queen of Atheism who was responding to blogger Lisa Graas.)

The current leaders of the Republican party have adopted the policy of banning Gay Marriage by whatever political or legal ways possible . Their rhetoric as such as pointed out in the video below of Zinnia Jones  Queen Of Atheism criticizing the Republicans and the Religious Right that they are upset by Gays (LGBT) having any rights and if at all possible may push for laws to punish in some fashion any who practice non-heterosexual practices . As the speaker of the Maryland Marriage Alliance says "gays are worthy of death" and so this goes way beyond merely banning Gay marriage but suggest such a ban would be the first stage in attacking the rights of gays and LGBT community.

 Zinnia Jones dismantles the disingenuous defense by blogger Lisa Graas that Reverend Robert Anderson the member of the Maryland Marriage Alliance  remark that "gays are worthy of death" as being a reference not to the execution ( ie stoning /lynching /lethal injection/gas chamber/ electric chair)by the state of Gays but rather to spiritual death or death of the soul or being sent to hell after one's death . As Jones argues if God is going to send all Gays (LGBT) to Hell for eternity then why do these extremist Christians need laws to punish Gays it would be superfluous

This type of eliminationists rhetoric is far beyond the pale since the anti-gay groups want to reverse all of the civil/legal rights gained by Gays over the last 30-40 or so years. Moving from the issue of Gay marriage to adoptions by Gays to their right to engage in activities such as renting or buying a house or running a business or being allowed to be lawyers or doctors or teachers and so on . So for the right banning Gay marriage is just the thin edge of the wedge and the beginning of a bigoted mean spirited slippery slope to rendering all non-heterosexual activities as illegal.

Maryland Marriage Alliance speaker says gays worthy of death, on 'wrong side of eternity'

Lisa Graas brings more attention to MD Marriage Alliance extremism

President Obama may have disappointed many of those Americans who voted for him in 2008 and those who gave him moral support outside the USA they must realize that replacing President Obama with Mitt Romney will be in the end a major and catastrophic change in the wrong direction as the GOP's two major parts the Religious Right and the Rightwing Neoconservatives push the world recklessly into even more wars and a lack of concern for other nation's sovereignty except for its closest allies such as Israel ,Saudi Arabia etc.

As president Romney we can expect will insist on America's right to unilateralism and defending America's hegemony and Empire at all cost without any hesitancy with no second guessing or doubts because as President Bush and his gang believed so does the gang around Romney also believe that whatever America does cannot be faulted because all of its actions are determined by the Christian God and so America by definition can do no wrong.

For those American voters who may be a bit disenchanted with President Obama and still wondering who to cast their vote for or whether to vote at all they should consider that the Romney/Ryan GOP platform includes policies which are extremist such as their policy concerning abortion. They have taken the stand for zero abortions with no exceptions. Voting for Romney is in effect a vote for the Religious Right and the Neocons and surely this is not what most American voters want.

That is an even more intolerant ,bigoted Christianized America fighting against their enemy the "Secular Humanists" within the US borders but also those outside the USA since they believe that it is their duty to by peaceful or other means to spread their right-wing intolerant form of Christianity to the rest of the world along with the Neocon imperialist project of removing any government of any sovereign nation which does not kow tow to the American party line.

What they believe in is the passing of legislation or even a constitutional amendment to defend not just the fetus but also the fertilized egg Embryo or Zygot granting "personhood" to the unborn from conception through to birth.

Why Mandatory 'Rape Babies' Are the GOP’s New Normal
With the takeover of the G.O.P by the religious right, Mourdock's position on abortion, rape and incest is in line with the party platform -- and echoed by top party leaders, including Paul Ryan
. by Adele M. Stan at,October 25, 2012

The party’s cruel platform

If you still have any doubts, just look at the abortion plank in the Republican Party Platform, as reported by the Associated Press:

The party states that "the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed."

Note the lack of any exceptions.

With the takeover of the G.O.P by the religious right, beginning in 1976, the party’s position on abortion has been on a slow and steady march toward deepening misogyny. Women are to be punished not just for choosing to have sex, but for being sexual beings at all -- for having vaginas, if you will.

The critical Christian right vote

Although evangelical Protestants, who now comprise 26 percent of the U.S. population, were not always so draconian in their views on abortion, the movement’s alliance with the Roman Catholic Church -- which prohibits any exception, even to save the life of the pregnant woman -- has led to the present-day, Dark Ages dictates of the religious right on matters of women’s sexuality and sexual vulnerability.

Among the most influential of the groups comprising the Christian right is the Family Research Council, led by Tony Perkins. Here’s an excerpt from a pamphlet (PDF), The ‘Hard Cases' of Abortion: A Pro-life Response, published by FRC:

If we constantly reaffirm the value of life and the state’s duty to protect all life from the moment of conception, then we will see the number of pro-life supporters rise in the years to come.

Only an uncompromising, no-exception approach, that refuses to support or veto for legal toleration of the intentional killing of innocent human beings, can offer the educational potential to restore reverence for the sanctity of life of every age and condition.

In September, I reported Perkins’ assertion of FRC’s close relationship with Romney, whose campaign he called the most cooperative he had ever dealt with. The support of the evangelicals represented by FRC is seen as critical to Romney’s fortunes in November; to throw Mourdock under the bus would be to severely jeopardize Romney’s support among a crucial constituency.

Much of Romney’s ground game, as I have reported, is in the hands of Ralph Reed, through the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a church-targeting get-out-the-vote operation.

Romney’s endorsers

When he finally won his party’s nomination, Romney proudly accepted endorsements from his former rivals: Texas Gov. Rick Santorum, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Ga., and former U.S. senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania -- all of whom signed a pledge demanded by PersonhoodUSA that declared a no-exceptions policy on abortion. Were Romney to pull his ad in support of Mourdock, would he retain the endorsements of the also-rans, particularly Bachmann -- who announced her endorsement with Romney at her side -- or Santorum, who nearly bested Romney in the primaries?

Tell me where the daylight is between Mourdock’s position and those of Bachmann and Santorum. Here’s Santorum via the New York Times, from August 2011:

“To put rape or incest victims through another trauma of an abortion, I think is too much to ask.”

Here’s Bachmann during the June 2011 Republican presidential debate in Manchester, N.H.:

Q: [to Bachmann]: Gov. Pawlenty says he opposes abortion rights except in cases of rape, incest, or when the mother's life is at stake. Do you have any problem with that position?

BACHMANN: I am 100 percent pro-life. I've given birth to five babies, an I've taken 23 foster children into my home. I believe in the dignity of life from conception until natural death. I believe in the sanctity of human life. Our Declaration of Independence said it's a creator who endowed us with inalienable rights given to us from God, not from government. And the first of those rights is life. And I stand for that right. I stand for the right to life. The very few cases that deal with those exceptions are the very tiniest of fraction of cases, and yet they get all the attention. Where all of the firepower is, is on the genuine issue of taking an innocent human life.
