The best example I have found of Republican paranoia about what the evil liberals are going to do to them comes from Michael Steele, the titular head after Rush Limbaugh, of the Republican party. Steele says that, "radical leftists"- will "falsify the U. S. Census and manipulate elections in their favor."-
Republican representative Michelle Bachmann says that the Obama administration's volunteer program for people to work to improve the United States are designed to be "re-education camps"- set up to pervert the minds of innocents to evil liberal values.
Michelle Malkin says that Republicans must be careful not to sign anything presented by anyone at something they're calling a Tea Party rally, since it will be an evil liberal saboteur trying to fool Republicans into signing a petition to promote evil liberal policies.
Where does this kind of paranoia come from? It never occurred to me that only radical leftists signed up to work for the census and that their purpose is to falsify the census to manipulate elections. I don't think that is even possible. You have to be thinking how much you would like to do that yourself before you can falsely accuse someone else of doing it. That accusation defines Steele as wanting to do exactly what he accuses others of doing.
Likewise, Michelle Bachman reveals her innermost desire to indoctrinate people into the far, right wingnuttery that she is so accomplished at by setting up re-education camps to save the world from evil liberals.
And, only a clinically paranoid Michelle Malkin who is so far out of touch with reality that she would even think it possible that evil liberal saboteurs would want to go to a wingnut rally, much less try to fool a wingnut into signing a petition. Liberals would never think of doing that. They're too smart to fall for that. Malkin doesn't think her fellow wingnuts are as smart as liberals and have to be warned not to do something really stupid.
Only people such as Steele, Bachmann, Malkin and the other wingnut Republicans would think of these attempts at perversion of the census, indoctrination in ideology and sabotage of a political rally. The reason they are obsessed with their opponents doing this to them is that they are obsessed with thinking about doing this to their opponents.
Where does this kind of weird, perverted thinking come from? Since it comes from the far-right, Republican wingnuts , it has to have been there within them all along. They are revealing their own wishes about what they would like to do, projecting their own desires on to their opponents. What they are saying says more about them than it does about liberals.
If you want to see what these Republicans would do if they were in power, just listen to what they are falsely accusing their liberal opponents of doing. They are giving us a clear picture of how they would go about gaining and retaining Republican power.
