From the “Holy Crap Republicans Are Insane” file we get this little nugget from Minnesota. If you had to guess what the biggest issue facing this nation in this generation is what would you say? Terrorism? Maybe. Global Climate Change? Probably. Lack of fresh water world wide? As a long shot sure. But you would be all wrong if you guessed any of those.
No, according to this Republican running for to against Rep. Tim Walz (D-MN First District) the biggest danger facing the nation is, Democrats. Allen Quist is a Republican from Minnesota who says:
“Our country is being destroyed. Every generation has had to fight the fight for freedom… Terrorism? Yes. That’s not the big battle,” he said. “The big battle is in D.C. with the radicals. They aren’t liberals. They are radicals. Obama, Pelosi, Walz: They’re not liberals, they’re radicals. They are destroying our country.”
If you would like to see the whole video you veiw it below. A word of warning though it is likely to make you want to bang your head against the keyboard, repeatedly.
Mr. Quist is not just any crazed Republican. He was a State Representative in Minnesota and ran for Governor there twice. He is obviously taking a page from Rep. Bachmann’s play book and running right to the edge of the Crazy Zone . Does anybody know what they are putting in the Republican drinking water in Minnesota?
As funny as it is on one level, on another it is scary. When it becomes okay to not just compare Democratic leaders (including the President) to terrorists but elevate the threat from them above that of real killers of Americans there is something really wrong with the Republican Party.
Just when I think they can not or will not go any lower, they get the keys to the secret subbasement out.
The floor is yours.
