The Most Dangerous Terrorists the United States Faces? Conservatives

teaparty-terroristsThe Republican party (and more specifically conservatives) are some of the most vile, hypocritical people in this country today.

These “southern conservatives,” throughout our American history, have stood for some of the most disgusting beliefs our nation has ever held.

And it’s a little ironic how most people will say something like Islamic radicals, when conservatives are often also driven by a warped delusion about their religion just like those Islamic radicals.

They defended slavery, opposed giving women the right to vote, opposed desegregation, interracial marriage, the Civil Rights Act and now they oppose equal rights for homosexuals.

People who claim to be “true patriots for a Constitutional America” are always on the wrong side of history.  I’ve still never quite understood how seceding from the United States (as these southern states did) makes you a “patriot.”  Well, that’s because it doesn’t – it makes you a terrorist.

Heck, it’s 2014 and still you get talk within these southern states of secession whenever they don’t get their way.

These people hate about half of all Americans (liberals), they even hate many of their “own kind” (R.I.N.O’s – Republican In Name Only).

The Republican party (the party they support) have held our economy hostage to undermine a president; nearly pushed our country to the point of default (for the first time in history); done everything they possibly could to sabotage a health care law (with several Republicans even admitting to it); shut down our government; cut food stamps for children living in poverty and now applaud the strength of a Russian dictator while attacking our very own president.

Exactly how are these people “Constitutional patriots”?  Any time our Constitution protects rights for people they don’t believe should have them, they have no problem doing everything they can to violate those rights.

Whenever bad economic news comes out, they almost fall over themselves trying to bash the president.  I never was a fan of George W. Bush, but I never openly rooted for his failure because I knew if he failed – we all failed. But that doesn’t stop conservatives from openly rooting for President Obama to fail.

When you look at our nation’s history, and its present, conservatives continue to be the most dangerous terrorist group we face.

So now, instead of focusing on how we can make this country better, we’re trying to convince millions of people that the overwhelming evidence that supports climate change is real and homosexuals deserve the same rights as every other American.  That you don’t fix an economy by supporting economic policies which make rich people richer and poor people poorer.

But continually in this country we’re not left battling some Islamic group, some Russian power or some other evil international group out to destroy the United States – we’re stuck fighting conservatives who seem determined (and control one of the two largest political parties in this country) to ruin this nation.

Though you don’t have to believe me, you just have to look at our history.  Slavery, denying a woman’s right to vote, segregation, bans on interracial marriage, opposition to civil rights – conservatives were the enemy in every one of those battles.

So, when someone poses the question to me, “Who’s the most dangerous terrorist group we face”?  To me, it’s conservatives.  Because while Islamic terrorists might try to take us down, conservatives have been continuously trying to do it for over 150 years.
