While the Democrats roll over and play dead in the face of the greatest theft that America has ever witnessed, the theft of the White House by the moron and his band of Congressional and Supreme Court thugs, even greater damage to our nation is being inflicted through the confirmation of some truly evil little people. We'll look closely at a number of them and will then offer up a list of which Democrats you have to thank for the staffing of our government with vile, vicious and mean spirited Republicans.
First up, let's take a quick look at John Ashcroft, a fellow much in the news during his confirmation hearings. We know that he is anti just about everything decent that a human being can stand for and still be carbon-based. Nevertheless, let's list just a few of his major and nasty accomplishments.
His opposition against African-American Ronnie White's nomination to a federal judgeship contained aspects that bordered on simple racism. He circulated lies about White's record on the bench, claiming that White was "pro-criminal". He claimed White was "notorious among law enforcement officers in his home state of Missouri for his decisions favoring murderers, rapists, drug dealers and other heinous criminals."
Naturally, not a word of it was true but Ashcroft's Rabid Right buddies distributed a memo mirroring these lies and White's nomination was voted down by the full Senate. Once again, the Right cannot help themselves. Following the nastiest of their little mob of Nazis just comes naturally to them.
His love of concealed weapons has grown over the years, beginning with his term as Governor of Missouri in 1991 when he stated that he had "grave concerns" about then-pending legislation that would allow vast numbers of Missourians to carry concealed weapons. By 1999, he was lending his voice to radio ads heavily backed by the NRA that supported a referendum to allow county sheriffs vast latitude in issuing concealed weapons permits.
His opposition to abortion in any case except those cases in which the woman's life is in danger but not in the case of rape or incest brands him just another conservative who wants government off the back of Corporate America but in the wombs of America's women.
Here are some quotes directly from the mouth of this sad little gnome?
"... slave owners ... did not have a practice of breaking up slave families. If anything, they encouraged strong slave families to further the slaves' peace and happiness."
"God led [Afrikaners] into the Transvaal [South Africa], it was with God that they made their prayerful covenant when they were besieged by bloodthirsty savages on all sides."
David Duke is "a candidate concerned about "affirmative" discrimination, welfare prolifigacy [sic], the taxation holocaust ... a Populist spokesperson for a recapturing of the American ideal."
"Negroes, Asians, and Orientals, Hispanics, Latins, and Eastern Europeans; have no temprament for democracy, never had, and probably never will ... It may be impolite and unpolitic to bring the subject up, but can our democratic system endure unless we close up the frontiers to peoples who are not predisposed to honor its assumptions?"
"... the terrible swift sword of the dread AIDS disease is surely what in other ages would be acknowledged as a sign of God's wrath."
Homosexuality is "the most repulsive desecration in the sexual order."
"(Homosexuality) is clearly a choice - a choice that can be made and umade."
Regarding gays - "Yes, well, you know, I believe that the Bible calls it a sin, and that's what defines sin for me ... In terms of public policy, the Democratic Party has an agenda of providing a special setting and special rights for homosexuals. I don't believe we should have special rights there. That's the public-policy question. The sin question is, should there be special rights for homosexuals in our culture and in our society, and I don't believe they should be accorded special rights."
So, we've determined that Ashcroft is a nasty little person that eight Democrats were able to rationalize voting for his confirmation as Attorney General. Where these eight could find the gall to act against this nation's best interests hasn't been answered and probably never can be. My money says that they were bought off in some fashion but, hey, what do I know?
Want to know which Democrats folded and voted for Ashcroft? Here are the individual Democrats who turned their backs on America with the total votes of both parties below that. Oh, yeah. Only from Another Perspective, here are the e-mail addresses for each Senator who has one, with the offenders in bold green "YEA's". Let them know what you think of their votes. ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 )
