Why has the Republican Party jumped off a cliff?
What has happened to that political movements reason?
How can a majority of Republicans embrace hate yet deny the history of hate and the disaster that the future will bring to their party?
Spite is one of the answers.
Vengeance, are all included in spite.
One day during the two terms of President Obama, the Republican Party majority woke up that day and realized that the world they believed would never change…
Somewhere between poor people getting health care and Trans people using the same toilet as them, their collective heads exploded.
The myth they had consistently told themselves that being White and conservative in America would protect them from having to share the wealth with brown people evaporated in their minds.
They were painted into a corner…
This mental realization of the change, the broadening of the social good for all drove a hot knife into their guts.
The reaction has been the Republican Conservative Party would instead burn America down then allow one Black, one Brown, one other to share in "their" Homeland.
So among the many things that this executive branch has done while in Office to go where doomed political parties have gone before boldly…
Was when their President and his people declared they were to defund the Special Olympics.
A moment of pure joy and a revelation to the nation…
The conservatives in this country exposed the dark heart at the root of the hate that is being fed.
The Republican Party and conservative America believe that it is in a fight to its death.
They will not listen to reason because they are in a struggle with what they believe is true.
I've said it before, have you ever tried to take a bone away from a jealous dog?
These conservatives will bite your hand, they will claw your face, they will rip out your life apart to protect what they believe has been given to them by God.
Their rightful place as stewards of this country.
I personally know the depths of this feeling being born into this conservative culture.
It is not only believed but preached from the pulpit every Sunday in America.
The story of White supremacy is taught to this very day not just in alley's and in bars out by the highway.
White supremacy is in the Office, in the home, in the church.
The idea of segregation and Whites being the stewards of the earth is in the book of Genesis.
You don't believe it?
The racists believe it.
At least that's how White racists interpret it.
So trying to reason with the Republican Party currently is a losing strategy.
When was the last time you asked a card-carrying Christian to stop believing in Jesus?
A story that says you'll have eternal life if you believe in me.
That is not something that can't be casually laid down, can it?
Especially when through the long dark history of racism in this country, the two stories of racial superiority and Christianity have been woven together into an ugly basket of hate.
I honestly have no concrete answer to this problem of our current day.
I don't know how to stop the fear conservatives have that they are losing their world.
The reason why is because they are losing their world.
The world is waking up.
The light of truth is shining into the dark places of our society and revealing an ugly dark hearted mold growing there.
We today are working to clean out that mold of the heart and mind.
Those that are happy to live in that darkness are upset that we are letting in the sunshine and spraying bleach around.
Like that show Hoarders…?
They are furious that we want to clean the trash out of their house.
They love living in their filth.
They are comfortable with the status quo, and we are upsetting the apple cart.
In one respect, we are watching conservative America ride their anger off the cliff of history.
We who are looking towards the future are watching the past commit suicide.
We, the people, the majority, stand at the mountain top and ask aloud, "Why did they do that?"
Love binds people to move towards truth and justice.
Love can bind the wounds of a people too.
Love can sweep away the nightmares in the mind, and restore hope.
Conservative America's last hope is if they can separate truth from lies.
Conservative America if you can hear me, "Love your neighbor as you love yourself."
