Republicans Showcase Their Extremism (Updated)

A few notable Republican quotes from the last few days:

FEAR – How Republicans Will Govern – ‘Kansas Secretary of State warns Obama might be promoting anti-white ‘ethnic cleansing’

HATE – How Republicans Will Govern – ‘Republican Rep. Mo Brooks Calls For President Obama to Be Sent To Prison for Five Years’

FEAR – How Republicans Will Govern – ‘GOPer Coburn: ‘You Could See Violence’ Over Immigration Executive Order’

“[t]he relationship of Negroes and Democrats is truly a master-slave relationship, with the benevolent master knowing what’s best for his simple minded drakes.”  Incoming Nevada Assembly Speaker Hansen

How Republicans Will Govern – ‘Block Obama’s nominees, Cruz urges’

“Obama is damaging the Presidency itself.” Speaker Boehner

“The President’s unconstitutional action is a direct threat to our Republican system of government and will have catastrophic consequences for the American people.” Senator Jeff Sessions, Alabama.

Plus a few more that I overlooked:

“…The White House would bring in millions of illiterate immigrants who would end up as voters.” She derided the “social costs of millions of unskilled, illiterate, foreign nationals coming into the United States who can’t speak English.” Rep. Michelle Bachman

“Obama is plotting and being openly desirous to destroy the constitution.” Senator Ted Cruz

“The President needs remedial civics 101.” Senator John Cornyn

“Once again we have the President…setting himself up as Judge, Jury, and Executioner, which is not what you’d expect in a democracy, more what you’d see in a dictatorship.” Senator John Barrasso

“The country’s going to go nuts…and its going to be a very dangerous situation. You’re going to see…instances of anarchy.” Senator Tom Coburn

“America would be overrun by immigrants. Apparently, America now has its first emperor. And he has issued orders to dissolve America’s borders.” Senator Jeff Sessions


And you’ve all heard or read of the attacks on the “Imperial Presidency,” or Obama’s “Spoiling the well,” (The well comment is a continuous one, going back to 2010), or 2 or 3 of the wing-nuts calling for his impeachment. Even a complete government shutdown, (because the last one was soooooo successful) has been called as a possibility by our Tea Bagger friends.

And lastly, Speaker Boehner, after two law firms refused the case, filed a lawsuit Friday morning against the Obama administration and its delaying a piece of Obamacare. Is this what we’re to become? Two parties filing lawsuits against each other every time there is a disagreement in DC? Is this what the Republicans meant by telling us, “We can govern?”
