Contributing to a false sense of security

It’s incredible someone would even put this in print!!
Tea Party favorites Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Larry Klayman spent most of last week bashing Muslims and introducing the “Quran” and “Allah” to the shutdown and debt ceiling debate that they are losing in Congress.
Unfortunately for them, Muslims are in fact more popular and viewed more favorably by Americans than the far right movement.
Nothing could be farther from the truth, but it makes for good headlines. It also has the effect of luring people into a false sense of security, making them think that things aren’t really as bad as they seem, when in fact they are much worse!
It was the GOP’s failure to stand together, he [Ted Cruz]said, that killed the effort to defund Obamacare.
“We didn’t accomplish our ultimate policy goal in this battle, and we didn’t because unfortunately a significant number of Senate Republicans chose not to unite and stand side by side with House Republicans,” he said. “Had we stood together I’m convinced the outcome of this fight would be very, very different. But listen, none of us ever thought that taking on the Washington establishment was going to be easy.”
He added: “Right now I’m more encouraged than ever.”
As Cruz took the stage, the audience greeted him with a 36-second standing ovation.
To many members of the #DemonicGOP Cruz et.al are the saviors of the GOP not its nemesis and you can be sure they will keep driving the theme that they are needed to resurrect a dying party from stale, old leadership and they’ll continue to do so with bigotry and demagoguery the likes of which we haven’t seen in American politics for a long time.
