They just don't know how to stop digging when they're already in such a deep hole. Even as "Republican rebranding" has become nothing but a sorry joke, G-O-TEA politicians just can't help themselves. They keep reminding us why their Republican Party has so much trouble with "minority outreach".
Throughout this month, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) has resorted to race baiting and praising child starvation to promote his "anti-poverty agenda". This compelled a Nobel Prize winning economist to publicly rebuke Rep. Ryan. And of course, this sordid affair reminded everyone how Ryan's agenda promotes rather than negates poverty.
And it's not just Paul Ryan making insensitive comments. In South Dakota, a State Senator is standing by his bill to allow businesses open to the public to engage in racial discrimination. Meanwhile in New York & Boston, the 21st Century Know Nothings are expressing "OUTRAGE!!!" over the respective cities' Mayors and major beer brands pulling out of the St. Patrick's Day Parades over the two parades' ban on open LGBTQ participation.
Oh, yes. That's right. They're still digging.
Even after Cresent Hardy made his now infamous "segregation laws" comments. Even after Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R) vetoed SB 1062. Even after Paul Ryan faced massive backlash for his "poverty" comments. And even after "Uncle Sugar" went overboard again. They're still digging.
Even though many Republican political consultants realize their party's looming demographic crisis, so many of their party's politicians just can't give up that toxic "TEA". And their creative "quick fix" can only suppress the future for so long.
Eventually, they will have to wake up and smell the 21st century. And eventually, they will have to emerge from the hole of their own creation if they want a viable future for their party. But even now, they still refuse to do either. Instead, they're still digging.
