Just how crazy has the NC GOP become?

Thoroughly bat-shit insane, that's how crazy the NC GOP has become. The latest evidence that what used to be LaRouche-caliber lunatic fringe extremism has now become the GOP mainstream was offered at the NC GOP holiday party hosted by US Rep. Charles Taylor. Ol' Chuck decided that no one exudes the Christmas spirit like the disgraced, indicted wacko Tom DeLay, whom he invited to be the featured speaker.

Former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay called President Obama a Marxist at a large GOP gathering here Friday night and said the country must return religion to government.

Tom was just getting warmed up, of course. Here are some other tidbits that just scream "Happy Holidays!"

"[Obama] doesn't lie about being a Marxist. He's proud of it. In fact, I think he's a Muslim, but he definitely is a Marxist."
...
"Look what happened in Ferguson, (Missouri,)" he said. "It had nothing to do with a cop shooting a teenager. It had everything to do with the culture of Ferguson that would raise a teenager that would attack a cop and try to kill him."

He repeatedly said Americans must "invoke the Constitution," saying the federal Department of Education and Environmental Protection Agency should be abolished because each "ain't in the Constitution."

"God needs to come back to the public square," he said.

Yeah, it's really nutty stuff. But it's now the mainstream in the GOP and the folks in attendance lapped it up.

Speaking of the folks in attendance

Deputy Assistant Guvnor Pat and Senator-election fraud Tillis attended Rep. Taylor's party. Thus far no photographic evidence has surfaced to demonstrate that they grinned and applauded DeLay's twisted remarks.

Just when you think they can't go any lower

They celebrate a lying piece of scum like Dancin' DeLay as a champion of family values and responsible government.

This is why I've voted to remove "hypocrisy" from the list of sins. It's gone mainstream in the Republican party, with no end in sight.

GOP hypocrisy

Yeah, hypocrisy would be fanning the flames of paranoia about Shariah law because it injects religion into government while preaching that one's own interpretation of Christianity needs to be the law of the land.

Delay should still be in jail

But Texas is a little confused when it comes to white-collar crimes:

On November 24, 2010, DeLay was found guilty by a Texas jury on both counts. The range of possible sentences was probation to between 5 and 99 years in prison and up to $20,000 in fines.[33] On January 10, 2011, after a sentencing hearing, Judge Priest sentenced DeLay to three years in prison on the charge of conspiring to launder corporate money into political donations. On the charge of money laundering, DeLay was sentenced to five years in prison, but that was probated for 10 years, meaning DeLay would serve 10 years' probation. Dick DeGuerin, DeLay's defense attorney, appealed his conviction to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, which heard oral arguments on October 10, 2012.[34]

On September 19, 2013, a Texas appeals court overturned Delay's conviction, ruling that the evidence was legally insufficient to sustain his convictions. The Travis County District Attorney's office issued a statement that it would appeal the decision before the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.[35] The Travis County D.A.'s office appealed. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals agreed to review the case and handed down a decision affirming the lower courts' dismissal October 1, 2014.[36][37]

Proving once again, if you're white anyway, the GOP doesn't consider you've done anything wrong unless you're actually sitting in jail.

Invoke the Constitution!

shrieks Tom DeLay. Not the part about not establishing a religion, of course, and not that stuff about being deprived of life & liberty without due process of law.

More recogntion!

GQ recognizes NC GOP craziness too!

GQ has nominated America's 20 craziest politicians and two from North Carolina's made the list: Rep.-elect Mark Walker, the Greensboro Republican recently elected to represent the 6th District, and Rep. Virginia Foxx, a Republican who represents the 5th District.

It must have been really difficult for GQ to choose only 20 loons from so many contenders, but I have to agree that Foxx & Walker are easily in the top 20 and richly deserve this dishonor.

"Just how crazy has the NC GOP become?"

BlueNC and other places of thought and caring are becoming Cassandras. The Trojans didn't listen to her either.

I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you?
