Top Ten Groups Of Americans The GOP Hates
June 6, 2012
By Justin Rosario

Let’s just get the obvious out of the way: The GOP runs on hate. Their entire political platform consists of opposing things they can’t stand. They don’t stand for anything; they stand against. They don’t stand for family values; they stand against alternate lifestyles. They don’t stand for freedom; they stand against the rights of others. It permeates every word they speak and every law they pass (or filibuster). But there are some people they hate more than others and, oh boy, does it show!

10. The Sick – The GOP doesn’t hate the sick so much as it loves the medical insurance industry. Unfortunately, sick people steal money from the bottom line of insurance companies and the GOP just hates that! Why else would they oppose Obamacare so strongly? All it does it take away the insurance companies’ power to cancel a policy when a person gets sick, allow parents to keep their children on their policy until they’re 26 (when presumably they’re old enough to finish advanced college and get their own), prevent people with pre-existing conditions from being refused insurance and forces insurance companies to spend at least 80% of the money they collect from customers on actual medical care instead of CEO bonuses. By the way, any extra money not spent on care is refunded to the customer. That’s billions of dollars that won’t go to the bottom line of the insurance industry! Unthinkable! The GOP has sworn a blood oath to repeal Obamacare. The tens of thousands of people that will die every year without it is inconsequential. Who told them to get sick in the first place?

9. The Military - You’d think that for all the festishising of the armed forces by the GOP they would be the first in line to do right by them. Here’s an important lesson on Republican politics: words are free, action costs money. A Republican administration happily sent our troops to war in Iraq based on lies, and allowed the country to collapse into chaos. This has cost us the lives of thousands of United States soldiers, and left tens of thousands more maimed or psychologically scarred. Remember when our ‘heroic’ troops were sent into combat without body armor? How about the Walter Reed scandal where our “revered” troops were left to suffer in squalor? How about when the White House couldn’t be bothered armoring troop transports against IEDs? Yup, the GOP sure does love the troops! For campaigning, for photo ops, for scoring cheap political points…

Do they love them when it comes time to treat them like people instead of propaganda? Not so much.

8. The Elderly – Before Social Security, more than 50% of men were still working after the age of 65. Remember, the average life expectancy was only 58.1 in 1930 so people literally worked until the day they died. Almost half of the elderly were forced to rely on their families for support. In an economic downturn, this would easily become an intolerable burden. And that’s not even including sickness or disease.

Before Medicare, old age was a time bomb waiting to go off. A broken hip would bankrupt a family, or wipe out the life savings of the elderly. They would be forced to choose between paying the utilities or buying life saving medicine. This is still a serious and widespread problem, but before Medicare it was far more common. Think about that; as bad as it is now, it was far worse back then.

And what does the GOP plan for both of these vital government programs? Get rid of them, of course, by any means necessary. Lie about Social Security being ‘broke,’ find ways to sabotage Medicare, it doesn’t matter that the end result is the suffering of millions of senior citizens. Let them eat cat food.

7. The Poor - The problem with the poor is that they take money away from the rich. They need food stamps and all kinds of government assistance! They’re nothing but greedy leeches on the true heroes of America: the rich that refuse to pay the poor a living wage in the first place. Besides, everyone knows that the more money the rich have the better off everyone is, so why not just cut all social services to pay for tax cuts for the rich? The GOP has been doing that for thirty years, and look how well off the rich are! Yeah, sure, it hasn’t ‘trickled down’ yet and there’s no indication that it ever will but so what? If the poor really want to better themselves they should just work hard and rely on a massive inheritance like Mitt Romney and the Koch brothers and Paris Hilton and, well you get the idea…

6. Black People - Problem number one: They’re not white. Problem number two: See problem number one. Seriously, there is nothing more adorable than a right-winger claiming that he GOP doesn’t hate black people. Here’s a short list: Birtherism, Obama as a monkey, Obama as a witch doctor, “Don’t Renig,” “Skinny ghetto crackhead,” “Welfare queens,” Southern Republicans worshiping the deeply racist Confederate flag, the Southern Strategy, rewriting history to claim that slavery wasn’t so bad.

I’m not going to provide links to verify any of this for doubters. You know why? Because if you don’t know what every single item on this very short list is, who said it and why than you have no business claiming the GOP is not deeply racist. You are too ignorant to have this conversation and you should move along.

5. Muslims - Sharia law! Eeeeeek! Nothing scares the GOP more than the boogeyman Muslims. They don’t “hate” Muslims so much as love to use them as a scare tactic. At least, the more cynical among the GOP think this way. Then you have the Christian fanatic Republicans who are absolutely convinced that Sharia law is just around the corner, Muslim terrorists are under every bed and terrorist sympathizers are, well, pretty much everyone that doesn’t scream about the first two. These are the idiots that are absolutely convinced that every terrorist is a Muslim. Except for Timothy McVeigh. And the assassin of George Tiller. And the various bombings and arson at abortion clinics by ‘Christians.’ And the hundreds of militia groups preparing for war against the United States government, many of them Christian ‘soldiers.’ And teabaggers showing up at rallies with guns threatening a new Civil War and “second amendment remedies.”

Not a Muslim among the bunch. Let me guess, ISOLATED INCIDENTS?

Someday, someone is going to have to explain to me how there has been more terrorism committed on American soil by “Christian” right wingers than evil, scary Muslims but we should be more worried about Sharia law than the GOP trying to bring about a theocracy, based on a deeply twisted version of Christianity

4. The LGBT Community - Everyone knows about the Gay Agenda to turn all of our children gay by molesting them. Gays demand extra-super-special rights that are suspiciously similar to the ones enjoyed by heterosexuals. They want to destroy the institution of marriage and annihilate the family. Everyone knows this! Republicans have worked extra hard to put the Gay in its place. It was so important to punish LGBT people for being born that way that they’ve taken time from creating no jobs to do it. Don’t pay attention to the union busting or tax cuts for corporations, look over here while the GOP inveighs against the sin of butt sex! This is important stuff!

3. Hispanics - While it may seem that only the southern states really hate Hispanics, the truth is the entire GOP despises them. The reason is simple: after decades of vilifying them for ‘stealing’ the jobs no other American would take, at a wage no other American would accept, the Hispanic population has exploded to the point where it has become an existential threat to the GOP base. One would almost be tempted to crow about the chickens coming home to roost, but that would be mixing bird metaphors. A less insane political party would adopt a conciliatory tone, and distance itself from its previous rhetoric of hate. The GOP, however, has doubled down on immigrant bashing. From demanding English be the official language of the country, to making racial profiling the law of the land, to chasing immigrants out of the state regardless of the massive economic damage incurred, Republicans are making sure their rapidly shrinking white base knows who’s on their side against the evil “browning of America.”

2. Women – I don’t understand how a single woman can vote for the GOP. Honestly, they oppose equal pay for equal work, they embrace the idea that women should be homemakers and nothing else, they really resent women that ignore cultural stereotypes, a made up insult against a conservative woman is sexist but totally fair game if it’s a liberal and the very idea of a woman having consequence-free sex is vile.

To this last point, the GOP assault on contraception has nothing to do with protecting life’ since the pill prevents fertilization from even occurring. Rather, it has to do with a woman having the kind of control over her life that a man has. With that control, women have been slowly making headway against the ‘boy’s club’ of the conservative world. Recently, women passed men in earning college degrees. Can you think of any deeper threat to the unearned privilege of being a man in America than having women on a equal or even superior footing? Liberals don’t have a problem with this but conservatives and Republicans invest a great deal of time into being “manly.” Women scare the hell out these little boys. Any opportunity to ‘put them in their place’ is seized upon. That’ll show’em them skirts who’s boss!

And the number one group the GOP hates the very, very most:

1. Actual Americans - I was taught that America was the land of opportunity where it didn’t matter who you were or where you came from. All you needed to do is work hard and you could succeed. Your religion, skin color or gender where irrelevant; anyone could make it. I was taught that we are the Great American Melting Pot. One nation, indivisible.


In the end, all that matters is that the GOP doesn’t stand for a better America. It stands against the success of the rest of us even if it hurts themselves. And that’s the very definition of hate.

    Your #4. Butt sex. Really? Butt sex? Ok, I will ignore the absolute childishness of that. The implication that it is the (R)s that think like that is a bit harder to ignore, but for the sake of arguement I will.

    The fact is gays are 4% of the population. A very loud, very whiney 4% of the overall population.
    http://www.bing.com/search?q=...

    They force their sexuality in the faces of our children by insisting that my 2 Dads be read in kindergarden. This is unnecessary. Quite simply put you teach the children to be respectful of people. Not THIS group of people, or THAT group of people. Just PEOPLE. There, that part is done now. They don't need details of any sexual relationship as children!!

    You make fun of the "destroy the family", but that is a goal of the left and they have proven that in other areas.

    Your #3. Hispanics. Of course you make no differentiation between amercian citizens, legal immigrants, and ILLEGAL immigrants.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    There is a list of 88 prominant republicans of latino descent. So as you can see they are more than welcome to share our ideals.

    See what republicans have isues with is ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. If someone enters our country illegaly they are criminals. They don't have to do ANYTHING else wrong. They already broke our law and disrespected our country. They cut in line in front of people who are trying to follow our law and enter our country legally. So what should we back down on? Our soverignty? Our right to a rule of law?

    How about if the republicans just adopt the exact same immigration laws they have IN MEXICO?? I could absolutely live with that. Of course Y'ALL couldnt!!

    I WILL BEGIN TO REFUTE YOUR POST WITH YOUR NUMBER ONE. You say that the GOP is against what you call actual Americans. I ask you WHO these people are. Or who YOU think they are. Because from everything I can see this is a ridiculous statement. Is it the right that enforces all the affirmative action programs? Is it the right that cripples people by giving them the label of victim? No. It is the left that does its level best to divide by color, by income, By gender, by sexual orientation, and by geographical location. It is the left that says if you do well it is LUCK. And that you should share your “luck” with those who don’t work as hard as you did to get the “luck”. When you discuss sharing their grades kids refuse, but the adults are not thinking of it the same way. You deserve what you can and do earn. No more, and no less.

    I agree with you on the melting pot. Too bad we have actually become a salad bowl. No longer are immigrants expected to assimilate. We are supposed to become the country they left to have a better life so they feel at home? They are not expected to learn our language; we are expected to teach school in THEIR language. We are expected to provide aid forms in their language. We are expected to say OK, you use YOUR form of law and not ours. They get all the benefits with no sacrifice and that is not life.

    Probably because you get your version of history from some Socialist Professor who had to distance himself from Hitler's Nazism. Let's take a look at who THEY said they were.

    O'Donnell is quoting Artur Axmann, the Nazi youth leader, recalling a conversation with Goebbels in the Hitler bunker on Tuesday, May 1, 1945, the same day Goebbels and his wife would kill themselves after she killed their children.

    "Goebbels stood up to greet me. He soon launched into lively memories of our old street-fighting days in Berlin-Wedding, from nineteen twenty-eight to thirty-three. He recalled how we had clobbered the Berlin Communists and the Socialists into submission, to the tune of the "Horst Wessel" marching song, on their old home ground.

    He said one of the great accomplishments of the Hitler regime had been to win the German workers over almost totally to the national cause. We had made patriots of the workers, he said, as the Kaiser had dismally failed to do. This, he kept repeating, had been one of the real triumphs of the movement. We Nazis were a non-Marxist yet revolutionary party, anticapitalist, antibourgeois, antireactionary....

    It seems inconceivable to modern minds that just a few differences between two similar ideologies -- Marxism and Nazism -- could have been sufficient cause for great enmity between those two ideologies. But the differences concerned were important to the people involved at the time. Marxism was class-based and Nazism was nationally based but otherwise they were very similar. That's what people said and thought at the time and that explains what they did and how they did it.
