Rep. Conyers: ‘There is Really Only One Major Political Party’
Cybercast News Service ^ | March 25, 2013 | Eric Scheiner

Posted on 03/25/2013 2:39:13 PM PDT by Olog-hai

Rep. John Conyers (D- Mich.) told the Detroit branch of the NAACP, “the Republican party is fading out of sight almost, so there is really only one major political party of any significance.”

Conyers made the comments at the March 12 event while discussing the need to focus on job creation.

Great way to say that you have nothing to say about job creation. How’s Detroit doing, eh?

Sure they do. They stand for being the fifth-column shadow libs, albeit not so much in the shadows anymore.

Well how's that democrat majority in the house workin out Johnny? Guess the GOP 3 branch majorities in 24 states (inc MI) are all just an illusion.

Rep. Conyers: ‘There is Really Only One Major Political Party’

Conyers thinks it's the Communist Party.

They appear to be synonymous, in this country. After all, the Communist Manifesto lists “win(ning) the battle of democracy” as one of the goals of the Communist Party.

The only other district that might elect this piece of detritus is Maxine Waters’ district in CA. What an embarrassment.

The last time we had one of the major political parties collapse and disappear was when the Whigs dissolved.

Why? Because the Democrats had bound themselves heart and soul to a fundamentally evil idea and the Whigs simply refused to stand up against it.

Which is oddly parallel to the situation we find ourselves in, today.

It is always curious to me that those who detested “the man” and were so pro-”do your own thing” in the late 60’s are now our political leaders and now march virtually goosestep in-line with each other, single file.

They’ve become The Man so many times over.

Fits exactly with the Communist Manifesto’s goal of raising “the proletariat” (in reality the immoral dregs of society) to the level of “ruling class”.

Yeah Conyers the party of crooks, like your wife and Kwame. The party of baby killers. The party of freedom killers. The party of job killers.

Conyers is kind of right.

They are both sides of the same coin. The GOPe are pushing as hard as they can to become Dem-lite. And most of the old in the GOP are more concerned about their friends across the aisle than they are about their constituents.

The democrat party was “fading away” in 2005 too. Then they retook both houses of congress two years later, then the presidency. Pay this type of rhetoric no mind.

Actually, John Conyers is absolutely positively dead on right.
The Republican party is as dead as Marley's ghost. Like a chicken with it's head off, the GOP just keeps flopping around.

Conyers is spitting in the wind. Yeah, his Assclown hero won in 2012...but with fewer votes and less acclimation than in 2008.

The 2010 elections were with an engaged and enlightened and energized electorate—and we are ready to do it again in 2014.

Conyers is old school liberal pathetic, and thinks because he has been in Congress since Moses was a baby that the gravy train is never gonna stop.

He is wrong.

I’d have to say, that’s about the first time I’ve ever heard Conyers say something with which I agree. The GOP hasn’t given me much reason lately to argue against it.

I think he’s talking about the party that runs the “education system” the courts, the police, all the departments of the executive branches, the entertainment industry and the “news”.

I agree with Conyers on this. The republicans as a party are nothing but losers. The leadership refuse to stand on conservative values. This is weakness at it’s extreme.

Conyers is married to a convicted ex-Detroit councilwoman who took bribes and stole money from the citizens of Detroit and the State of Michigan. Gives him a lot of credibility to talk about the plight of Deroiters.

This old scumbag has got to go.

I listened to conservative radio commentators-preachers back in the 1970’s and one of them highlighted the most left-leaning members of Congress like Ron “Red” Dellums and good old Mr. Conyers.

Conyers was noted in the 90’s as being upset with Waco and Ruby Ridge, but his motive was sheer hatred of the FBI for going after Communists back in the 1940’s and 50’s.

Now.

Bring back US jobs.

For all of Rick Snyder’s faults, (and he has plenty) he is attracting money to Detroit and Michigan.

I just wish he was as friendly to good old American Manufacturing is he is to tech. If I were him, I’d be all over those east coast gun manufacturers trying to survive in a hostile environment.
