In Independence Day Prayer, Rep. Broun Compares Progressives To Terrorists Who “Want To Destroy Us”
July 05, 2011 — Matt Finkelstein
. . There are those who wish to destroy the U.S., Broun said, citing radical Islam and “progressives.”
“Father, there are many who want to destroy us from outside this nation,” Broun said. “Folks like al-Qaeda and the radical Islamists. But there are folks that want to destroy us from inside, the progressives and the socialists, who want to make this nation a nation that’s no longer under you, under God, but a nation that’s ruled by man.”
Paul Broun’s God rules this country? That would explain the racism.
Anyway I was wondering what it would be like if we participated in the same sort of demonizing that Paul and his buddies engage in, but of the Republicans. That might be fun. I wonder if we could come up with something that would bug them. Knowing how easily they get upset, I bet it could be done.
How about this:
“Father, there are many who want to destroy us from outside this nation. But there are many more who seek to destroy us from inside. And we know this to be true because they’ve been bragging about destroying us for years. Father, they call themselves ‘conservatives.’
“They bragged about protecting Americans. But they delivered thousands of citizens into harm’s way, gift-wrapped for our enemies to shoot, or maim, or blow up as they pleased. Five thousand have died so far, and many, many times that have been injured. Many more can no longer sleep, or think, or walk.
“They bragged about bringing a ‘culture of life’ to this nation. But as a massive hurricane tore apart our Southern coast, they did nothing. Not a single thing. And people died. In the aftermath, as TV cameras rolled and reporters documented the thirst, starvation and suffering of Americans, they still did nothing. When they were finally forced into action, they congratulated each other on their perseverance and wisdom. But thousands drowned.
“They bragged about their gospel of prosperity. But after they favored the smallest contingent of Americans, the rich, to take reckless risks with our property, the economy, it completely collapsed. Millions lost their jobs. Millions more saw their hard-earned retirements evaporate. Careers were destroyed, relationships broken apart, families scattered to the wind. People died from stress, others committed suicide. We see many people sleeping in tents now, or living on the streets.
“You, Lord, above all others know how bad things have gotten, and how much worse things could get. So we pray to you, Father. Hear us as we tell you. We continue to suffer from the plagues that torment us. We linger in the chaos, and poverty, and political violence cast upon this nation. We long for better days. Meanwhile, in their wanton destruction and loss of life, the guilty exult. And we suspect it’s all at our expense.
“So we humbly beseech of thee, Dear God. Font of all rational thought, source of all kindness and compassion, defender of the common good. Please kill all the conservatives.”
