Rachel Maddow: ‘Elect Republicans And They Will Burn The Place Down’ (Video)
Opposing Views ^ | 10/01/2013 | By Sarah Rae Fruchtnicht

Rachel Maddow blasted Republicans for shutting down the government, claiming they’ve been trying to do this since they took control of the House of Representatives.

MSNBC host Maddow said Monday that Republicans took control of the House and were sworn in January 2011. By April they were threatening to shut down the government.

Maddow criticized the GOP Congress for being the least productive Congress in U.S. history.

She said there has been “no significant legislation since John Boehner got the speakership.”

The GOP has been “otherwise occupied” with threatening to shut down the government.

“By July [2011] Republicans had forced the first ever debt ceiling crisis in American history. We got our credit rating downgraded for that one,” she said.

“By September of that same year, Republicans were again threatening another government shutdown,” she continued. “By April of the following year more threats from Republicans of another government shutdown. By December … Republicans were pushing us over the fiscal cliff.”

In January the GOP talked about forcing another debt ceiling crisis before backing down.

“This is not an accident that just keep happening over and over again,” she said.

Maddow played clip after clip of GOP representatives promising to shut down the government when they campaigned for office in 2010.

When she played footage of a Republican House strategy meeting from 2010, applause and cheering can be heard when they say they will shut down the government if they get a House majority.

She said after a Republican conference meeting on Saturday, the GOP was “excited” to shut down the government.

"They did not seem like they were having a somber moment," she observed. Instead they had a "palpable glee" about the shut down.

The moral of this story, she says, “Elect Republicans and they will burn the place down.”

“This is what Republicans want to do,” she said. “This is what they promised to do. This tactic, ‘let’s roll’, this tactic is an end in and of itself, and that is why there is no talking them out of it. Elect Republicans and they will burn the place down, and they will laugh while they do it and have a great time. And then what?”

Elect Republicans and they will burn the place down, and they will laugh while they do it and have a great time. And then what?”
 

And then what? How about we gather the ashes - add in some pig fat - build a huge momument to Barack Hussein Obama - and then burn that down too.

Shut it down forever. Cut taxes back to half of their current rates. Only use the collected money to fund defense when necessary.

And they got elected on that promise, I see that Maddow fails to mention that, because then she would have to face the realization that not everybody LOVES government.

Obama began the fire 5 years ago.

Liberty is like several species of pine trees, whose cones open only when a forest fire generates the heat necessary to open the cones.

The first burn was hot enough to birth the Tea Party.

Ted Cruz (with the assistance of many others) has started the second burn.

The GOPe has been constructing their own firebreak by attacking Tea Partiers, in the vain hope of keeping their power and perquisites.

Either way, they lose. First, in the primaries. Second, in the general, when Tea Partiers, the bedrock of the Republican Party sit on their hands should the likes of Mitch McConnell survive their primary.

Winning back the Senate is a worthy goal, but only if we elect more Senators like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.

bwahaha....

And they will kick puppies.
And steal candy from babies (the little bastards that survived)!
And throw your grandmother over a cliff
And and...and..

I love seeing liberals un-hinged. I heard that whack job schumer this a.m. comparing the GOP to some sort of evil non-sense, not one iota of "debate", just name calling.

They got nothing and are scared shitless.

I don't see the problem.

That’s actually not a bad idea. I’d love to burn down the edifice of left/liberalism that has infected the country like the worst plague ever visited on a people. Love to.

Of course, Maddow is describing liberals, and she knows it. Fully half - half - of all liberal efforts is to blame their victims of what they are doing. Liberals consider this their ultimate mind control tactic. But what it actually is is proof that none of them are ignorant of their actions. All of them fully understand the total evil that they are committing. And that WILL be held against them.
