9/11 Was an Inside the Butt Job

Republicans sure know how to pick candidates, with the GOP voters of Alabama picking Roy Moore as their candidate for an upcoming special election to fill Jeff Sessions' former Senate seat. Moore is a religious fundamentalist who, among other things, recently blamed the 9/11 attacks on, among other things, 'legitimizing sodomy'. Weird how much he sounds like the senior members of Al Qaeda, blaming the victims of religious fanaticism for incurring the wrath of God... fundamentalists are fundaments, to a man.

Basically, Roy Moore was blaming 9/11 on buttsex, but he's wrong- lube doesn't burn hot enough to melt steel beams!

On a serious note, how the hell did our nation, founded on secular Enlightenment principles, come to this?

Mmmm, let in too much Euro-trash seeking to practice their perverted beliefs in freedom?

Not so sure the Founders' "secular Enlightenment principles" were necessarily shared by the masses. Hey, The Britannica confirms:
"The Great Awakening stemmed the tide of Enlightenment rationalism among a great many people in the colonies."

You gotta hand it to 'em. A whole bunch of Americans know exactly what they want, and what they want is bloody red crazy. They want hate, and violence, and incarceration, and torture, and war and death and disease and widespread destruction of a whole list of people who are not like them in a set of perfectly insignificant ways.

The Republicans started cultivating this 'base' to serve a specific set of economic policy goals. It all started, believe it or not, with abortion. But that was built on top of a message of tribal fear and bigotry. Like any other operation of that nature, the intent was to get out before the monster you're creating ate YOU. But they couldn't make unpopular policies popular enough to be successful, and now the monster has its Dr. Frankenstein in its sights.

Roy Moore is the example of what you get when Republicans in the era of Trump try to govern - even just a little bit. The idea that you can run a modern nation of 350 million souls without the slightest hint of political compromise is ludicrous, and it's simply hard to see how this all ends...
