The GOP’s Hamas Strategy

Sure this racist, sexist ploy seems crazy — if you’re a party that actually thinks you have a shot at winning elections and therefore needs to court Hispanic and Latinos.

The GOP is not such a party.

The Rushpublicans know they won’t be the winning many elections for the next decade or so, so their strategy is to sow anger and fear, hoping that angry mobs turning violent and angry individuals  following in Timothy McVeigh’s or Eric Rudolph’s footsteps.

Basically, the GOP is modeling itself after Hamas; the party  dog whistles like mad to foment bigotry and violence  while  officially speaking out against bigotry and violence. And waiting to take political advantage of the terrorist attacks they’re working so hard to indirectly (for deniability’s sake) cause.

Hamas started out as a terrorist group and became a political party. The GOP started out as a political party and is transforming itself into a terrorist group. And terrorists don’t care about alienating women or non-white voters.

The Coming Backlash Against the GOP

If the Rethuglicans thought they had their asses handed to them in 2006 and 2008, they haven’t seen anything yet:

Judge Sonia Sotomayor picked up another Republican vote Wednesday, but supporters from both parties said the underwhelming GOP support for the nation’s first Latina Supreme Court nominee could produce a political backlash.

“This is not a helpful moment for Republicans among Hispanics,” said Florida’s Sen. Mel Martinez, one of seven Republicans who have committed to vote for Sotomayor.

As always, the GOP is on the wrong side of the American people — an increasing number of whom are Hispanic and Latino. Not exactly a good idea to alienate the country’s fastest growing-constituency. Then again, the Rushpublicans have been out of good ideas for decades.

Enough of the Mob
