Daily Kos Week in Review: The Anti-Rainbow Coalition

Kossacks seldom tire of declaring conservatives' alleged hatred of minority groups, and are especially energetic about doing so in the wake of racial incidents such as the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin. This past week, one even dared to assert that the right believes it's "a-okay to murder black children."

As usual, each headline is preceded by the blogger's name or pseudonym. Daily Kos Week in Review will return in two weeks. Happy Easter!

MinistryOfTruth: Conservatives dread America's multicultural future...

...[P]aranoid assholes with guns who think black people are trying to take their stuff make up the majority of the GOP base...

...[T]the rainbow is coming for you, Conservatives, a generation of people who don't hate gay people, black people, women and every one else you love to demonize, and none of them will ever vote Republican again because they have seen you govern under Bush and FAIL miserably at it, and they've watched you attack their friends for far too long. The Reagan Revolution is OVER, done, kaput. Ronald Reagan is dead, he was a shitty President who used race-baiting speeches in Philadelphia, Mississippi to get elected and now he is dead and his revolution is over. The next generation fucking hates Dick Cheney and loves Eminem, they think Fox News is a total joke and gay marriage should be allowed, and if the Republican party were to collapse tomorrow in a Santorum-scented, Brooks Brother's tailored implosion of its' own ego driven hubris the next generation will be dancing in the streets to celebrate...

OllieGarkey: ...and not only endorse the killing of Trayvon...
 
...Believing that it is wrong to stalk, chase, and murder a child is not a sign of liberal bias...

I don't understand why conservatives even want to have this discussion! I don't understand why they want to be the party that is okay with stalking and murdering black children!...

The right wing wants to ban prophylactics and is saying, publicly, that it's a-okay to murder black children.

Is this the 50's again or something?

LeftHandedMan: ...but are more lethal than al-Qaeda

...The last thirty-plus years have been dominated by the rise of Movement Conservatism.

What are the hallmarks of this era? Besides absolute fealty to the rich and the powerful?

...[A] deliberately castrated corporate news media...A pervasive beltway mentality where it is a bigger outrage to truthfully call somebody who is blatantly lying a liar that it is for that person blatantly lying to lie. Calvinist Austerity...Civil rights rollbacks. Civil liberties rollbacks. A war on women, the poor, the non-white, the gay, the middle class, the eldery [sic]...

Movement Conservatism will kill more innocent Americans than Al-Qaida ever will...

Liberal Protestant: The GOP is in a bind

...The Republicans have set themselves on a course where the only prescription for maintaining any semblance of political power is to strangle the middle class and confuse the increasingly downtrodden masses with bread and circuses, and fear of hoodies and condoms...

LaughingPlanet: Ignorant righties inspire violent thoughts

...[W]hen scientists who win the Nobel Prize tell them we better wake the fuck up and fight climate change? Umm...I think I should get a second opinion.

This type of news makes me want to walk into a Walmart and start randomly shaking and slapping people.

Or maybe scientists should start trying to invent a Wake-The-Fuck-Up ray with which we can zap willfully ignorant Republicans...
