Conservatives hate Catholics and threaten to assassinate Pope Francis

Since Pope Francis' elevation to the Papacy, the White Power Right-Wingers in America and their Party, the Republicans, have been gnashing their teeth and getting angrier and angrier at Il Papa. Now, on the eve of his visit, Conservatives are threatening to assassinate the Pope.

Conservatives have historically always hated Catholicism. But, in the 1980's Reagan, Thatcher and John Paul II made common cause and hard right-wing views inflitrated and corrupted the Church. Any American Catholic not accepting the vicious right-wing Agenda was a "cafeteria catholic" and a traitor to the faith.

Today, Pope Francis is reversing that trend, pointing out the Church should be helping the poor, speaking out against runaway Income Inequality and Vulture Capitalism, while addressing Climate Change. Pope Francis has also relaxed rules on women receiving absolution for abortions and to ease restrictions on Marriage Annulments.

These changes do not sit well in Right-Wing America. Conservatives love Cut-Throat Capitalism, hate the poor, want Women punished, and are reflexively against addressing Climate Change because Liberals are for it. All of these things hurt people and Conservatives love to hurt people.

But, as with the Rise of Trump, the White Power Right-Wingers are feeling more and more comfortable with demanding their Republican Party, begin to follow through and deliever the U.S. Government back into the hands of the White Supremacists, which has been one of the carrots Republicans have dangled in order to secure the bigot vote.

Sarah Palin complaining that the Pope sounds "too liberal" and the Republicans in Congress pulling a ceremonial bill congratulating the Pope on his elevation to Saint Peter's Chair weren't enough.

Republican House Speaker John Boehner has invited Pope Francis for a one-on-one meeting and this is infuriating to Conservatives. Now, the National Review Online, (the link goes to the Booman Tribune not the odious racist NRO) is trying to craft a narrative to justify a conservative assassination attempt on the Pope. The NRO article basically culls an article by Maureen Mullarkey which proclaims Pope Francis is Mussolini and Peron and notes,
She is not the first, nor should she be the last to notice the violence that lurks within Francis’ rhetoric.
Just recently NRO called Bernie Sanders a Nazi because conservatives love to call people Fascist in order to diffuse and distract away from the fact right-wing policies are fascist.
"It’s clear to me that the Code of Canon Law, Canon 915, says that a Catholic politician who publicly espouses positions that are contrary, not just to any teachings of the Church, but to serious moral teachings, should not receive Holy Communion until they recant those positions publicly," Bishop Michael Sheridan responded. "Voters needs a little bit more nuance, because there the question is, are we voting for those politicians precisely because of their positions on those non-negotiable issues? Here is what I would say: It would be very difficult for me to understand how, if there are two candidates quite far apart in their positions on these matters, I could vote for the one who consistently opposes these Church teachings, simply because he might be in favor of a few good things."
 You see in the article by right-wing drone Terry Jeffrey quoting conservative Bishop Sheridan, was about Vice President Joe Biden, being denied communion under the Papacy of Benedict XVII but of course nowadays with Pope Francis such appeals are ignored by Republican Catholic politicians who simply tell Francis to shut up because they don't want to hear him.

Conservatives are rapidly causing a schism in the Evangelical/Catholic Voting Block which they've enjoyed since the Reagan/Thatcher/John Paul II days.

Chicken Hawk Donald Trump likens his New York school days to Vietnam

The New York Times, a bastion of Trump Love, is running a story on Donald Trump upcoming Biography (to be released on September 22nd). First off, I knew Trump's run was, most likely, some scheme to fleece the conservative rubes once more, which is why I haven't really written anything on him. But, the piece might be the missing scale in TRUMP/SMAUG's impenetrable hide.

The funny thing is somewhere along the way, the conservative rubes have become tired of the rhetoric and no-action from the Republican Party. You can only claim Obama/Hitler is fundamentally destroying America so many times before your devotees begin to wonder why you aren't doing something about it.

So, it's no wonder that the establishment Plutocracy choices for President ("Jeb" Bush or Scott Walker) are not polling well. The rabid conservative base wants a President who is going to stomp on gay people, deport the Mexicans, eliminate the social safety net for blacks, and reconstruct the White Power Nation they so fervently desire.

Trump has been saying out loud and loudly what white power conservatives want to hear. Every attack on Trump strengthened him, every mention of his name even in the most negative of connotations or tone propelled his Make America Great brand stronger.

Until, perhaps, now. I saw a Tweet by 2016 Illinois Senate Winner Tammy Duckworth, thanking Trump for his "service" and found the New York Times story.

From 1959 to 1964, Donald Trump attended New York Military Academy, after graduating in 1964 Trump ensured he received several deferments, including ones for "heel spurs" on both feet, before receiving a high final draft number.

Trump, never content, has likened his time in School to actually being in the military. Here's what Trump has to say about his avoidance of the draft and Vietnam,
"My number was so incredible, and it was a very high draft number. Anyway, so I never had to do that, but I felt that I was in the military in the true sense because I dealt with those people..." 
And it doesn't matter to Trump because like everything he does he does it better, as he had "more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military."
Now, I don't think this will hurt Trump with his Right-Wing White Power Fan Base. Conservatives gleefully voted for Chicken Hawk 5 Deferment Dick Cheney and W(orst POTUS in History) both times.

White Power Right-Wingers bounded into the voting booth to elect Mitt Romney, who likened his time in France to being exactly the same as being in French-Indochina, and whose 5 Sons all eschewed Military Service during, what conservatives call, the Greatest War Since Ronnie Raygun defeated the Soviet Union.

The Republican Party is replete with Chicken Hawk Warmongers. Trump fits right in and Conservatives will gladly vote for him and shout "White Power!"

Questions Mount in The Death of Fox Lake Police Officer Joe Gliniewicz

Update:I've sat on this for a while, but now that the
news media is reporting on it, there are mounting questions concerning whom exactly is responsible for the Death of Joe Gliniewicz. Because of the failures with the search for the suspects and internal investigations involving the Fox Lake Chief, the on-going investigation has not ruled out suicide or, even worse, Blue-on-Blue murder. I can only hope no Fox Lake Officer was involved but, as the media digs it's becoming frighteningly possible that this was not the murder we thought it was.

Today was the funeral procession for slain Fox Lake Police LT Charles Joesph Gliniewicz. Over 1000 Police Vehicles and several thousand police officers attended. You know who wasn't there?  Sean Hannity, Charles Krauthammer, Racist Limbaugh, Erick Erickson, Ben Shapiro, or any of the Faux News bigots or right-wing internet trolls.

Because LT Joe Gliniewicz's murderous assailants don't fit the race baiting narrative the right wing media is attempting to craft. See 2 of the 3 suspects, obliquely referred to in this Washington Times article as Suspicious Men (without a description), are white.

So, it runs counter to the ratfucking of #BlackLivesMatter and the War on Cops narrative the Incestuous Right-Wing Media is trying to create.

It's the same reason Faux News and the Right-Wing Media didn't proclaim the War on Cops when conservative second amendment heroes Jerad and Amanda Miller killed 2 Police Officers in Las Vegas declaring, "This is the beginning of the revolution!" or when Richard Poplawski assassinated 3 Pittsburgh Officers in 2009 because he feared President Obama's Coming Gun Ban.

Conservatives don't care about Joe Gliniewicz. All they care about is using the deaths of Police Officers to advance the Right-Wing Agenda of Oppression and Intolerance. What they support is the Legal System of Law & Order; the use of Police Power and Authority to Oppress and Advance White Supremacy.

On-Line Conservatives have rushed to demand President Obama denounce the attacks on Police Officers, pointing out Barack made comments after Trayvon Martin's death. When the President's numerous comments denouncing the attacks are referenced, right-wing internet scolds cry 'Bullshit!' because it undermines what they desparately want to believe.

Conservatives love when Cops are killed as they ramp up the Republican War on Police Officers

"I suspect some of the police may actually even be fans of Rage Against the Machine. I suspect some of the police come from working class and middle class backgrounds like we do and like you do. I suspect the Cops here today have much more in common with this band, with you people than with the people of the RNC." - Tom Morello addressing the People protesting the RNC on 09/02/08.
Conservatives don't give a shit about Individual Officers. Everytime they speak it's about "The Police" or "Officers" plural.
"Cops across this country are feeling the assault. They’re feeling the assault from the president. From the top on down, as we see — whether it’s in Ferguson or Baltimore — the response of senior officials of the president, of the attorney general, is to vilify law enforcement." - Senator Ted Cruz.
And immediately conservatives swallow Cruz and regurgitate his Right-Wing crafted talking points. The Republican Party strategy has been to bitch and moan, whine and cry, day in- day out everyday of Obama's Presidency. They know it's a winning strategy. Eventualy, all the phony poutrage and faux scandals they craft out of nothing will catch the Media's attention who will sagely wrinkle their brows and report on the growing controversy, as though outright Republican lies and fabricated conservative falsehoods should be treated as credible. It worked during the Clinton Presidency leading to a bogus impeachment and allowed the Criminal Bush/Cheney Cabal to run on bringing back honor to the White House, which was besmirched immediately when Al Gore the Winner of the 2000 Presidential Election was denied the Office by the Right-Wing Stooges in the SCOTUS.

Now, Republicans and conservatives don't actually care about individual Officers. Cops as a monolith. Law Enforcement as a solid undifferentiated block. What Conservatives can never mention is individuality. Because the individual is anathema to the Republican Agenda.

What Republicans actually support is the euphemistic phrase Law & Order; i.e. using the Police to, oppress minorities, enforce intolerance against those oustide the main stream, and advance the agenda of the Plutocracy.

As Nixon's special longtime Presidential Assistant John Ehrlichman revealed,
"The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar Left, and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black. But by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news."
The only individual Cops that Conservatives like are dead ones. Because Republicans are grave robbers and cheap fakes, who cram their right-wing words into the mouths of the dead. Using the dead to advance their agenda is the hallmark of American Conservatives.

It's disgusting. It's cheap. It's tawdry. It is who they are...

Like Benghazi, Republicans who beat their breast, tear at their hair, bemoan and wail at Obama's War on the Police can't tell you the names of any Officer. All they can do is cut-and-paste facebook memes.

Individual Police Officers are of no use to the Republican Party because an individual can waiver in his political views and not toe the right-wing line.  Republicans have the same view of the Military and Veterans.

Conservatives don't care about Veterans but, only about the Military-Industrial-Complex. Conservatives recoil when a Hero, like Pat Tillman turns out to be a complicated individual who doesn't swallow the right-wing pablum which keeps conservatives returning time and time and time again to their Republican Masters.

What's actually happening is Republican Policies are responsible for the deaths of Police Officers. Guns everywhere laws have demonstrably not made Americans safer. Murders are down from the high point but, overall gun deaths consistently top 32,000 a year in America. And it's the ease of access to guns that is putting Officers lives at risk.

Additionally, Republican economic policies create impoverished areas and off-shored Tens of Millions of manufacturing jobs; which used to be in the urban areas. Republican draconian drug policies incentivize drug dealing, usually the only jobs left in abandoned urban areas.Republican DoD budgets and Wars based on Lies swindled Trillions of Dollars from the American People. Republican deregulation of Wall Street led to the Housing Bubble, the 2007 Republican Recession and wiped out Trillions in savings and assets for the Middle and Working Class.

And all these Republican Party Policies, crafted to benefit the Very Rich are putting Police Officers lives at risk.

Obama thinks he's better than McKinley!

"Denali... the great one, soaring under the midnight sun." - Sarah Palin (I prefer William Shatner's spoken word rendition of Palin's word salads) 
The Right-Wing outrage machine is the cure to the world's energy crisis. It never stops and is powered by nothing.

Over at NationalReview you can catch a whiff of the insanity which permeates all levels of the American Right-Wing. But, there are numerous posts in the incestous right-wing internet bubble, which have generated a limitless supply of conservative vitriol and hate.

It doesn't matter that Alaskans wanted to return to the mountain to it's original name, it doesn't matter that President McKinley never set foot on the mountain, it doesn't matter that the only reason Denali wasn't renamed 30 years ago was a Parlimentary procedural move by a single Ohio Republican in Congress, it doesn't matter that Congress delegated to the Department of the Interior the authority to make this decision over 60 years ago.

No, the only thing that matters is getting conservatives frothing at the mouth, taking to their keyboards to rage amongst themselves, to decry King Obama, to make oblique threats, to cross reference one another's rage while their political Masters, the Republican Party, feeds their violent stupidity and active ignorance
