In no particular order, this writer will give you a choice of a number of Klown Kar Riders, now making news for their lack of veracity, and loss of a grasp of the truth.   People dedicated to the Big Lie in all its glory and no surprise, they are all Republicans and Right-wingers.


Our guide begins with Voter Disenfranchisement:   it is becoming increasingly apparent that Republicans, against the Department of Justice's efforts to stop the illegal actions, are using various methods to stop opponents' supporters from voting.   They are challenging people's citizenship, residency, age, and more, to prevent people who have every right, from voting in the Presidential Election.   The GOP are focusing upon people who will vote for the GOP's Opposition, President Barack Obama.


We offer you a comment to make if, or when, you sign a petition to stop voter disenfranchisement:

The right to vote is fundamental to any democracy.   Each U.S. Citizen has the right to make choices, to determine the direction of her/his future; the direction taken by our government.   If we continue to allow certain political parties or factions to disenfranchise voters, in order to thin out the number of people who might indeed vote against them, then we are contributing to our own demise.   If politicians take away a civil right that does not affect us, and we say "so what?" then we are guilty of helping to plan for the time when the next civil right taken away from us is one that directly us.   Remember, as Edmund Burke said: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

Rep. Bachmann, lying
Copyrighted Image? DMCA

Moving along to one of the former commuters in the Klown Kar, Rep. Michelle Bachmann, we have learned politicians from both parties in the House and the Senate have attacked the former Presidential candidate for her own attacks on Muslims.   One, is Huma Abedin, wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-NY.   Bachmann has accused Ms. Abedin of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic Party that recently took power in Egypt.   Not satisfied to attack Ms. Abedin alone, Rep. Bachmann also accused her mother, brother, and late father of the same allegiances to the Muslim Brotherhood.   Five other Republicans joined Rep. Bachmann.   (No surprises here, they all represent states in which we find many bigots and racists.)


Even Senator John McCain, R-Ariz, in a speech on the Senate Floor, said, "These sinister accusations rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Huma's family, none of which have been shown to harm or threaten the United States in any way."   Denouncing Bachmann, McCain went on to say, "These attacks have no logic, no basis, and no merit and they need to stop.   They need to stop now."


The first Muslim elected to Congress, Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., said of Bachmann, "This is one of those moments when you can't stay silent.   This is McCarthyism at its worst."
