Nutty Conservative Ideas Of The Week From Denial Of The Drop In Unemployment To Why Slavery Was Good

One of the many falsehoods spread by the right wing is the  untrue claim that Barack Obama had promised to lower the unemployment rate under 8 percent. Of course the right wing has done quite a bit to keep the unemployment rate up, including failing to act on the American Jobs Act and decreasing government jobs. Now that, despite the best efforts of the right wing, unemployment has dropped under 8 percent, conservatives are upset. Their imaginary bar at 8 percent unemployment now works against them. Just imagine how unhappy they would be if Obama had achieved a full economic recovery in just four years, as unlikely as this would be considering how badly the Republicans had damaged the economy before Obama took office.

When conservatives are mad they don’t just get angry. They will deny and invent conspiracy theories. An unemployment rate truther movement has already begun. A conspiracy theory inevitably leads to debunking of the conspiracy, which can be found here.

The unemployment truther movement wasn’t the only right wing lunacy from this week. A Republican member of Congress from Georgia, Paul Broun, had this to say about evolution, embryology, and the Big Bang Theory:

“All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell,” Broun said. “And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior.”

Representative Jon Hubbard of Arkansas has an entire book out which explains far right wing views such as why slavery was a good thing for blacks:

“… the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth.”

And don’t forget that dishonest guy who replaced the real Mitt Romney on Wednesday who took positions entirely different from those Romney has campaigned on,  and attacked Big Bird.

    what I find disturbing about Paul Broun’s comments, especially about embryology, (evolution too, but to a slightly smaller degree) is that he is a licensed, MEDICAL DOCTOR!

    I thank the FSM that he was never my doctor.

    It really appears the the extreme right wing of the country is TRYING to appear as insane as possible – and doing a hell of a job, too.

    On a slightly different note, I read, during the primaries that it  would be a really good thing for the Dems if Romney got nominated, and then lost.  the theory was, that next election cycle, the reps would say to themselves, “If Romney lost, and he’s a moderate, then we need to put in a REAL conservative – somebody to the right of Newt Gingrich” – thus assuring the dems an easy win in ’16.
