Just As I Thought

The unthinkable becomes the consensus

Unlike the Democrats, when Republicans believe in things that the public doesn’t, their response is ‘fuck it, we’ll make them believe.’ Like attacking Iraq… to avenge 9/11. Convincing a country that badly wanted healthcare reform that they actually didn’t want it… Like turning global warming into a hoax. That’s what conservatives do. Relentlessly push until the unthinkable becomes the consensus. The idea of blaming teachers for our financial crisis, which would have seemed completely lunatic a year ago, becomes the conventional wisdom. Republicans don’t run from unpopular stances and they stand by their convictions. Stupid, ignorant, world-destroying convictions based on disproven economic fantasies, and ancient books filled with primitive morality and magic people, but convictions nonetheless.
