May 30, 2016 By Jack Jodell (in association with BURR DEMING of FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column).
Happy Memorial Day, everybody! Today, as we remember those who have passed (and especially those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom), let us pause to remember what the United States of America is supposed to be all about. Let us remember why the French gave us the Statue of Liberty, and all that it symbolizes. And then let us contrast that with the attitudes of certain paranoid Republican Congressional fear mongers as well as their presumptive 2016 presidential nominee, Donald Trump. For, much as what happened in the dark, previous McCarthy era of the early 1950s, today’s batch of paranoids are also eager to shoot first at perceived American enemies while asking questions much later, if at all.
In today’s masterful podcast, our gifted podcaster extraordinaire BURR DEMING shows us the hypocrisy, ignorance, and callousness which permeates today’s Tea Party-infested, reactionary Republican Party. We are shown how ridiculously hateful and fearful so many of them are as they very mistakenly attempt to tar and feather ALL Muslims – even those who are friendly to this country!
Burr tells us, “The history of 22 Uyghurs, Muslims from the outskirts of China, is an unfortunate prologue to what is happening now.
Too many self styled patriots are willing to sacrifice those who risk life and well being to help us, as long as those sacrificed are not Americans.”
