Excerpt from Rachel Maddow on her show Wednesday after the election:
“”Ohio really did go to President Obama last night, he really did win. He really was born in Hawaii, and he really is, legitimately, president of the United States again. And The Bureau of Labor Statistics did not make up a fake unemployment rate last month. And the Congressional Research Service really can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy. And the polls were not skewed to oversample Democrats. And Nate Silver was not making up fake projections about the election to make conservatives feel bad. Nate Silver was doing math.
And climate change is real. And rape really does cause pregnancy sometimes. And evolution is a thing! And Benghazi was an attack on us, it was not a scandal by us. And nobody is taking away anyone’s guns. And taxes have not gone up. And the deficit is dropping, actually. And Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction. And the moon landing was real. And FEMA is not building concentration camps. And UN election observers are not taking over Texas. And moderate reforms of the regulations on the insurance industry and the financial services industry in this country are not the same thing as communism.””
In other words…Republicans wake the f_ck up. There is no Democratic conspiracy going on to turn the US into a communist or socialist state. President Obama is NOT a closet Muslim trying to get rid of the US constitution.
The anti-Obama anti-Democratic Party rhetoric that Fox news, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and others have been making up and spewing the last four years is just insulting. Insulting to blacks, Hispanics, other minorities, people with intelligence, women in general and those of us who live in a world of reality, good sense, and good will towards ALL men/women.
