First Bachmann, Now Hayes – Liberals Hate America – AudioOctober 21, 2008
Congressman Robin Hayes, a Republican from North Carolina, has echoed the sentiments of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann who, only a couple days ago called for investigations into whether certain liberal members of Congress were ‘anti-American’. His stunning comment, made before what he described as the largest gathering for John McCain in North Carolina, was “liberals hate real Americans that work and achieve and believe in God.”
Rep. Hayes, a wealthy owner of a pantyhose factory, said not minutes before “make sure we don’t say something stupid, make sure we don’t say something we don’t mean.” In other words, Congressman Hayes either doesn’t understand the statement was stupid, or he is indeed so stupid as to think his statement was intelligent. His think, rural, southern accent lends a wonderful atmosphere to this bit of far right wing hyperbolic, hate filled rhetoric.
It seems the Republican party has become more honest with the American people as to how they view America. It’s not one of acceptance, or democracy, or a melting pot, or a place where freedoms are sacred, but rather they seem to view America as only residing in the hearts of those that unfailingly vote for Republican candidates. That seems to be what they think is America. I have news for them, America is no such place.
We have not toiled and striven, fought wars and sacrificed family members for your vision of America, Congressman. These actions and accomplishments have been undertaken for freedom, liberty, and the hope of never having an oppressive regime siphon these noble ideals from our minds. The Republicans don’t agree, apparently–they seem to be proposing just that. A regime that only honors those that believe in their god, that only protects those that support them, and only cares only to put forward the values of their America–where hatred is good, and investigating anyone who is suspected of disagreeing with them is needed. That is tyranny, it is not democracy. That is a reversion back to Joe McCarthy, or, if they succeed where he failed, Joseph Stalin.
Here is proof of Congressman Hayes saying the disgusting words of hate and division:Vodpod videos no longer available.
