GOP Congressman Wants US To Join Forces With ISIS ... Are We Really Surprised By That?

Gosh, just as more and more of us are understanding that _____ is an uninformed, ill-qualified, mentally defective bully, along comes another Republican to try and wrestle the crown from that nest of muskrat fur atop the president’s head.

And I’m looking at you, California GOP Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.

See, Dana recently praised the ISIS attack in Tehran as a “good thing” and then actually suggested that the United States work with the terrorist organization. Yup, a Republican wants America to join forces with a radical organization that beheads civilians, rapes and sells women, and burns people alive. Isn’t that fun?
“We have recently seen an attack on Iran, and the Iranian government, the mullahs, believe that Sunni forces have attacked them. This may signal a ratcheting up of certain commitments by the United States of America. As far as I’m concerned, I just want to make this point and see what you think, isn’t it a good thing for us to have the United States finally backing up Sunnis who will attack Hezbollah and the Shiite threat to us? Isn’t that a good thing?”
Yup, he wants a US-ISIS coalition because, as long as ISIS is attacking the “right” people, we oughta help, and that, ladies and gentleladies, is the GOP finally coming clean as a wannabe terrorist organization.

And yet, should we be surprised at the idea of Republicans as terrorists? This is the GOP, and their tribal mentality, that their agenda comes before the country ... party over people. And as long as a Republican sits in the White House, as long as the GOP controls the Congress, hooking up with terrorists is a “good thing”.

Any political group that holds this thought—that ISIS can become an ally if they do something to further the GOP anti-Muslim “ideology”—is a party that has no morals, no sense of right and wrong, and that party is the GOP.

That’s why they are dead-set to destroy health care for millions in order to give millionaires a tax break; that’s why they are out to destroy public lands, national parks, and Native American lands, for a few extra coins in their pockets; that’s why they shed crocodile tears at the amount of gun violence and dead Americans while cashing those NRA checks; that’s why they can cut off  funding programs for children’s health ...  for the poor ... for the elderly ... for veterans ... without so much as a second-thought.

That’s the GOP, and goddess help us all while they are in power.

Rohrabacher has been an embarrassment to Southern California as long as I can remember.

It would also appear that greed has no limits either
