Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, December 04, 2017

Republican Roy Moore, removed from the Alabama Supreme Court for his erratic behavior and banned from the mall for harassing teenage girls, has cloaked his campaign for the Senate in the language of "spiritual warfare." As such, he is the most apt representative of the Republican Party in our age of cult politics. Moore is pitching himself as God's candidate and his voters are slopping it up like poisoned applesauce. The party of "family values" is about to send a known sexual predator to the Senate because God wants them to. This would be startling, except they already used the same reasoning to put a known sexual predator in the White House.

The same magical reasoning infects Republicans tax reform plans. We are in the eighth year of continuous job growth, the eighth year of economic expansion, and the eighth year of a head-spinning stock market boom. Corporate profits are at record levels and the economy has been redlining at full-employment for almost three years. By any marginally credible economic reasoning, this would be an ideal moment to raise taxes, curb debt, make investments in public infrastructure, and just generally do the things one does at the peak of a long economic expansion.

At this moment, why are Republicans trying to slash taxes for the wealthy? Why would someone castrate themselves and commit suicide? Because that's what the cult demands.

Because they know that soon the Democrats will get wise about election theft and do something about it so the Republicans need to steal as much as they can while they are still in power.

There's no good reason to be a Republican other than to spite your neighbor who maybe isn't.

In Alabama the "spiritual warfare" is being waged between honest Christians and heretic cultists.

Remember when candidate Trumplestiltskin promised to pay down the debt. Now here is dotard adding an extra $1,500,000,000,000 to it along with the costs of paying him for his golfing which he also promised to not do.

Drain the swamp? A swarm of 600 lobbyists wrote the GOP tax scam. Betsy DeVoss alma matter was specifically exempted from a tax that is being imposed on other universities. Goldman Sachs executives that destroyed middle class lives in 2008-09 are in charge.

You Trumpt@rds are looking extra stupid these days.

If you mean 'fake christians' by 'heretic cultists', then you are right. The fake christians are the ones that are pushing for Roy Moore. The real christians are disgusted by him and the gop.

Clearly bomber has gone mad.

Of course he's a self-proclaimed libertarian, so his mental deficiencies were already known.

Spoken like a good little Bolshevik...

Contrary to popular belief, the Soviets really didn't treat most dissidents harshly. At least not after Stalin years. Instead, they locked up dissidents in Mental Hospitals; the commonly held belfieid being that if you didn't support the socialist utopia and the benign government that made it possible, then you must be nuts.
