Hatch the fascist now fears his once proudly proclaimed fascist vote history?

What a shock!

Powerful Senator Endorses Destroying Computers of Illegal Downloaders (Orrin Hatch)

WASHINGTON (AP) - The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Tuesday he favors developing new technology to remotely destroy the computers of people who illegally download music from the Internet.

Orrin Hatch voted for the bailout. His words are nothing; his actions betray him.

Sen. Orrin Hatch has a message for the Tea Party movement: Work with the GOP or see conservatives lose more ground.

“If we fractionalize the Republican Party, we are going to see more liberals elected,” Hatch warned a crowd of 300 at a town meeting at American Fork Junior High School on Wednesday night, amid jeers from Tea Party supporters.

Hatch blamed extreme conservatives for the 2008 defeat of Sen. Gordon Smith, a politically moderate but fiscally conservative Republican from Oregon.

Hatch said if the Tea Party had not backed a constitutionalist candidate in that race, Smith wouldn’t have lost to Democrat Jeff Merkley, whom Hatch described as “the most liberal senator,” by 45,000 votes.

... All these dinosaurs who’ve been around forever have got to go. People are finally waking up to what crap statement’s like Hatch’s is … Republican does not equal conservative.

Maybe Hatch should have said something more along the lines of, “I repent. I’m sorry for being a supporter of Big Government. I am ashamed. If Republican politicians don’t start acting as principled conservatives, we’re going to fractionalize and destroy the Republican Party. It’s our fault. The American people are right!”
