The Christian Knights Of The Long Knives

by pessimist

There has been a lot of commentary lately from all across the political spectrum that the Republican Party is falling apart now that so many of the leading lads are under investigation or indictment. While I for one would be glad to see such a thing, I wasn't convinced that it wasn't just wishful thinking - until I got the following article emailed to be by one of my Good Orange County (CA) Republican coworkers:

By Their Fruits Ye Shall Know Them!
September 28, 2005

Judging by the fruits put forth by this Republican controlled Congress and born-again President, the statement rings in my ears, "who needs enemies with friends like these?" Now, I'm sure many that choose to keep their Republican blinders on will just say that I'm going to the extreme and that isn't the intent.

Let's take a look at some of these fruitful actions moved forward by our born-again friends.

So much has been said and written about the Patriot Act that I won't beat a dead horse. Needless to say, this totally unconstitutional and treasonous act should require that anyone voting for it be convicted of treason against the United States and put away for life. By their fruits, ye shall know them.

Our Republican-controlled Congress and President have allowed our borders to remain open without so much as lifting a finger to protect the sovereignty of our Nation. We can ship our young men and women off to die in foreign lands for oil, but we can't stop illegals from walking across our borders. There are to many other Bush backed efforts and treaties designed to destroy the borders of our Nation that I haven't listed them all here. By their fruits, ye shall know them.

I have to say, as bad as the one-two punch of Katrina and Rita were, and the subsequent second coming of the 'Louisiana' purchase being pushed by congress; it is nothing compared to the 'National' disaster residing in Washington. The treason and agenda being pursued in Washington is (sic) despicable and those members supporting these actions are nothing more than Satan's loyal and lock-step servants residing on earth. By their fruits, ye shall know them.

There are more accusations and emotional appeals to those with conservative religious values to awaken and recognize that Bu$hCo (my term, not theirs) does not represent them and needs to be removed from office. I would include these for their entertainment value, except that the factoids presented as supporting evidence are clearly incorrect or obsolete. These presented above have a factual paper trail that can be followed.

It's over, George. Time to go home to Crawford and trim the brush. You'll be called when they want you to report for arraignment.
