| Republicans have expressed their hatred of many segments of our society. Typically egged on by Conservative Media nutcases such as Limbaugh and Hannity, Rosen and Caldara - long may he be fired from radio, and any number of Mini-Limabaugh imitators both local and national, the list is too much for any one blogger to document. Women, Teachers, Union members, Firefighters, Police, Auto workers, soldiers, voters, Postal workers, the poor, the middle class, and on and on and on have all been the victims of their vitriol.
As if it's needed, further proof that Republicans will stop at nothing and stoop to any level to express that hatred came in the form of an illogical, specious, near-physchotic, ignorance-laden free-associated puke given up by Republican Bob Morris of Indiana:
In what is looking like a coordinated attack on Girl Scouts of America, the latest salvo comes from Rep. Bob Morris, R-Fort Wayne. The lawmaker declined to sign a letter of resolution congratulating the Girl Scouts on their hundredth anniversary last week and thanking them "for the strong positive influence it has had on the American woman."
Not so fast. Morris explained couldn't sign because "he did some Web-based research and found allegations that the Girl Scouts are a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood, that they allow transgender females to join, 'just like any real girl,' and encourage sex."
That's what Republicans do: lie, hate, and divide Americans, even the most trusted and worthwhile institutions that serve the most vulnerable and impressionable in society - our children.
