GOP and terrorists: perfect together?

Markos thinks that Republicans and Muslim terrorists share a lot in common.

That’s why hysterical assertions by the wingers that liberals hate America and want the terrorists to win are so absurd. As absurd as it would’ve been to claim that Reagan wanted the Communists to win the Cold War. The Taliban/Al Qaida/Hezbollah/Jihadists of the world are the exact embodiment of evil in the liberal mind. They are everything we are against, and against everything we are for.

In fact, they are exactly what we see in the Republican Party as the GOP continues to consolidate power — creeping theocracy, moralizing, us versus them, embrace of torture, the need to constantly declare jihad on someone, hysterics over football-game nipples, control over “decency” on the airwaves, lyrics censorship, hostility to women freedoms, curtaling of civil liberties, and so on.

So it’s pretty obvious — we don’t love terrorists. We don’t want them to win. For them to win would be to realize our greatest fears. The muslim terrorist is truly the anti-liberal. Like matter and anti-matter.

What do you think?

    The fundagelicals (whatever their political party might be) have an awful lot in common with the radical Islamists. Two flavors of fundamentalism, the only thing they really differ on is which set of scriptures to revere. But not all Republicans are fundagelicals.
