The GOP’s True Colors Will Not Be Televised

In the wake of the right calling Sandra Fluke a sl*t for supporting access to birth control and Senator Akin’s appalling comments about “legitimate rape” and abortion, the GOP didn’t stop. Only this incident, as the attached points out, has gotten remarkably little attention. Why is that? Do I smell racism, in addition to sexism?

We all need to pay attention to this stuff — read it, link to it, pass it on. Do not let this behavior go unnoticed. Do not let them get away with it. Look around you — look at your children, look at the children in your family and in your neighborhoods.

If we let the GOP continue unchallenged, which one of those children will grow up to face taunts of sl*t for their opinions, or called animals and have things thrown at them because of their race?

Save their future. Save their rights. Save ours. Challenge the right. Stand up. Speak up. Get out and vote. Take your friends with you.

This year — this election — is no joke.

About deb

Wandering and wondering - taking it all in -- and increasingly shaking my head. Who are we and how did we get to this here? And, what, where and how next? Putting what I see and think out there in pictures and always looking for other ways, hence, this blog. This blog, like me, is a work in process and still doesn't quite know what it wants to be when it grows up.
