The New, Improved GOP Southern Strategy
Thoughts from the LEFT: Guest Post by J.Marquis
Okay, let's get this stupid Ground Zero mosque issue out of the way...I agree with Harry Reid. It's legal for them to put it there but I prefer they choose a different spot further away. That small act of compromise would TRULY help bring people together.
The thing that really bothers me is how some Republicans like Newt Gingrich are using this situation as a springboard for generating hatred of American Muslims. Somebody on Morning Joe called Gingrich a "political pyromaniac"...I thought that was a good observation. People like him will gladly turn us against each other if it helps them get anywhere in their personal quest for political power.
So, here we are in 2010 and the GOP is adding American Muslims to their list of groups to hate. Who else made the cut?
And if you think I'm exaggerating about the way black, Latino and Muslim conservatives are feeling betrayed, just check out all the articles online about how freaked out the leaders of those groups are feeling these days...
