Here is Frank Schaeffer of The Huffington Post talking about the dangers of right wing rhetoric on The Rachel Maddow Show:
So now all these people have been associated with the Republican Party. What’s a party to do? They can’t totally walk away from them because it is better than 50% of their support base. Then they can’t totally embrace them either. They could do what the congress lady from Illinois did last week (and what the Republicans have been doing all along) you know talk out of both sides of your mouth at the same time or you could just man up and be honest.
The Republicans Extremist Dilemma
Nah these are Republicans we are dealing with. So they trot out their party chairman Micheal “stephin flechet” Steele to come out and try his best to distance the Republican Party from them.
This man is got to be the biggest joke and a major disappointment to Black people everywhere. So how do they defend themselves now? These nutcases and their 2nd amendment right to bear arms are going to go too far one day and somebody is going to get seriously hurt. It’s bound to happen. Then what will be Beck Limbaugh and thee Republicans excuse going to be? These southern rednecks are really taking over the Republican Party and they are literally driving it into the ground.
