Keith Fimian: Standard Issue Right Wingnut

Monday, March 1, 2010

I defy anyone to find something in this video of a Keith Fimian campaign event that isn't standard-issue right wingnuttery. Against a woman's right to choose? Check. Mindless "your money is your money" rhetoric (apparently he wants to abolish Social Security, Medicare and the military, since those account for most of the federal budget)? Check. Opposed to workers being able to organize effectively? Check. "Illegal immigrant" bashing? Check. Sarah Palin-like rhetoric about using "weapons to defeat [the terrorists] not lawyers to defend them?" Check. Government bashing? Check. Blaming "career politicians" in general rather than Bush and the Republicans for "getting us into this mess?" Check. Attacking "Barney Frank" as barely concealed homophobia? Check. Same-old same-old Republican economic mantra? Check.

On and on Keith Fimian goes, but where it all leads...actually, we do know, because we saw it from 2001 to 2008 under George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Tom DeLay, and the merry band of "trickle down"/"supply side" conservatives who got us into the mess we're in now. Do people have such short memories that they've already forgotten how bad Keith Fimian's Republican brethren screwed up our country? For all our sake, let's hope not.
