Rep. Alan Grayson has always spoken out against the crazy, anti-intellectual side of the Republican party and as I've written before, he always speaks truth to psychosis. Here's what he said about Ted Cruz after he shut down the federal government:
Grayson: No, not at all. Ted Cruz represent the element in the republican party that's trying to hasten the Apocalypse. These are people who understand that Obamacare actually does help save people's lives and they want to destroy it anyway.
These are people who understand that defaulting on the national debt would drive unemployment sky high and they want to do it anyway. Those are the people Ted Cruz speaks to today.
He explains that politicians like Cruz understand what their actions will cost the American government and the taxpayers, but don't care. This past Sunday, Senator Marco Rubio joined the ranks of Ted Cruz , Louis Gohmert and many others as a disbeliever in truth and facts when he denied that climate change was influenced by mankind and said scientists were all wrong when asked if climate change was threatening cities in Florida.
"I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientist are portraying it," Rubio said. "And I do not believe the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it. Except, it will destroy our economy."
I emailed Rep. Alan Grayson after I watched Rubio's performance on ABC news about his ludicrous positions since he's from Florida too and here's how he responded via email:
Grayson: It’s insane, but that’s what passes for political discourse these days. It’s a complete rejection of facts, evidence and logic – the “Endarkenment.”
To some Christian conservatives, climate change is nothing more than a sign of the approaching End Times, but for Rubio it's just gobbledegook nonsense, but to people who objectively consider and weigh the evidence, it's a threat to our planet's entire existence.
I think "The Endarkenment" describes the Republican party perfectly.
