Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been reminded of his support of the Citizens United ruling after he warned big businesses to “stay out of politics” as they denounced a controversial new voting law in Georgia …
He issued his call for firms to “stay out of politics” as Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines criticized the policy along with other firms. Major League Baseball also announced that it would relocate the 2021 All-Star Game due to be held in Atlanta …
A number of commentators reacted to the Republican leader’s remarks by reminding him of his support for the Citizens United ruling that permitted corporations, unions and other outside groups to spend unlimited sums on elections.
“Mitch McConnell knows corporations are not people—that’s why he’s so quick to silence them,” the End Citizens United campaign tweeted Sunday. “He only considers them ‘people’ when cashing their checks and watching their dark money ads in support of his campaign of voter suppression and gridlock.”
There’s little or no need to fill in the details of McConnell’s hypocrisy. He fits the role of leader of the Republican Party in Congress perfectly. Deciding what they want, taxing American workers and their families to pick up the tab. He knows exactly which class owns his heart and soul. If he had one.
Wisconsin’s state speaker Robin Vos (Republican) defended the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision to host primary elections…in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, telling a reporter with the Journal-Times: “You are incredibly safe to go out.”
Vos made the comments while donning a mask, gloves and protective gown, an image that underscored the health concerns that many have expressed about (the Primary) elections.
This schmuck has more gall than our Fake President when it comes to making bullshit statements that neither he nor anyone else in the Republican Party intends to live up to.
Mr. Mouth calling for state sovereignty
Texas Governor Rick Perry called on Texans to pray for rain as cooler temperatures on Thursday helped firefighters contain wildfires that have charred more than 1.5 million acres across the state.
Perry, a Republican, sought increased federal help in combating the blazes last weekend and urged Texans to ask the same from a higher power over the Easter holiday weekend.
This is the same buffoon who endorses secession and states’ rights when his butt isn’t burning.
“Throughout our history, both as a state and as individuals, Texans have been strengthened, assured and lifted up through prayer,” Perry said in a statement. “It is fitting that Texans should join together in prayer to humbly seek an end to this ongoing drought and these devastating wildfires.”
A wave of moisture and cooler weather had already helped the roughly 1,800 firefighters and support crews contain nine fires and make headway against many more by Thursday morning. Mother Nature generally accomplishes more than ideology.
But conditions fueling the fast-moving wildfires that killed two volunteer firefighters and destroyed 200 homes this month would not ease for good, officials warned.
This silly-ass Kool Aid Party Republikan whines most of the year about Big Government. Except when he needs a hand-up or a hand-out.
Like most of the hustlers who currently own the Republican Party he’s a national-class hypocrite. That he calls upon his dimwit followers to exercise their fundamentalist superstitions to assuage the natural results of administrative incompetence – follows as night the day.
