“I had forgotten that your parents came all the way from Thailand to serve George Washington”
See Kirkâ€™s Retort About Duckworthâ€™s Race at Senate Debate Draws CriticismThe general election in USA for 2016 reminds me how disgusting GOP is. They are not the Government of the People. They are the party that seeks to govern for the ugliest people in USAian society. Imagine a daughter of a family with a long history of military service being called out on the basis of her ethnicity! What kind of toad does that? Even if it was uttered in the heat of an argument, I would expect a sincere apology momentarily. Instead there is no apology and no sincerity. Worse than race, the subject of the snide remark is an amputee having gone to serve in a shooting war. The remark and its maker are doubly deplorable.
It’s not just a few individuals. Even McCain, who has undoubtedly given great service to his country, has promised never to approve any SCOTUS nominee by Hillary Clinton. It takes a lot of hatred of democracy to sabotage one of the pillars of a democratic government, an independent Supreme Court. GOP will argue that Hillary will nominate turds and the court will lean liberal but they have no objection if a Republican nominates a turd and the court leans conservative. That’s the definition of hate. GOP is the party of hatred to the point of cutting off a nose to spite a face. Then there’s Trump who tells a lie and repeats it three times every few minutes all day long.
Well. I expect Hillary will win. I recommend she nominates the most liberal judge with the right experience that she can find and let the court dwindle. Perhaps the justices will eventually resign on mass to force more nominations. The GOP will reap the hatred that they sow.
