They’re b-a-c-k

Another interesting primary night.

From Ballooon Juice tonight:

I’m sure they will be no more extreme than they were 150 years ago. In the 1860 Election the Confederates were against:

  • Education. Ditto 2010
  • Federal Spending for infrastructure. Ditto 2010
  • Help for Free Labor and the working man. Ditto 2010
  • Federal efforts to reign in the oligarchs of the day. Ditto 2010
  • The idea that the Constitution guaranteed “personal Liberty”. Ditto 2010
  •  And then as now the Confederate Party uses the memes, rhetoric, scare tactics, and talking points of white supremacy and fear of the ‘others’ to bring the low hanging rubes into their movement.

    The Republican Party is dead. It is the Confederate Party now bitches. Get use to it.

    Oh, and get ready to party like it’s 1860.
