Georgia Senate threatens to secede

What do they plan on fighting with, peaches? Mind you, this comes on yesterday’s threat by the GOP governor of Texas to secede as well.

Of course, what’s really going on here is that Republicans are intentionally fanning the flames of violence because they’ve been out of power for a grand total of 100 days. They began pushing their followers towards violence during the presidential campaign, and have actually increased the inflammatory language over the past few months. Culminating, today, with a call for the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to no longer investigate known domestic terror threats.

The Republican party has a serious problem with extremists, not just in its midst, but among its leadership and its key allies in the faux media (FOX News) and its grassroots (Limbaugh, the blogs, and the religious right). The GOP is quite literally pushing their most extreme followers to violence. And now that they’re calling on the government to ignore known terrorist threats, it’s only a matter of time before something violent happens, and then the Republican party will find itself out of power permanently.
