Erick Erickson Threatens 'Violence In The Polling Booths' If GOP Doesn't Shutdown Govt Over Planned Parenthood
August 1, 2015

Sorry for the longish title, but when Erick Erickson posts one of his late night psycho rants, it's hard to nail down just one meme.

We have passed the point where Nazi comparisons are inappropriate. In the latest video about Planned Parenthood, if you want to watch it, you will see an admission that some of the children are born alive before being killed and carved up — their bodies being sold essentially for scrap.


If Republicans are not willing to make this their hill to die on and even see the government shutdown to stop this, the Republican Party needs to be shut down.

The Party of Lincoln that rose from the ashes of a whig Party that would not stand up to slavery must stand up to this evil. The American public is staring evil in the face and it looks a lot like them. It must end.

If Abraham Lincoln’s party will not fight to stop a practice that defends itself with the same arguments used by proponents of slavery, it is time for a new party.

Pro-life jerks like EE should stop using President Lincoln as a symbol for the GOP since they soiled his good name during the civil right's movement many decades to go, but since they are so devoid of real heroes, they need to stretch. Erickson had flipped out on the GOP in an earlier post where he called for retribution against the Planned Parenthood enablers in the GOP.

Friends, if Republicans in Congress will not stop giving tax payer dollars to the American Joseph Mengele, we should show the party violence in the polling booth.
Shut down the government if that is what it takes. Shut it down now. If we cannot stand on this high ground, we should not stand at all.

Since the GOP allowed to let the far right wing fringe take over their party for fear of what Obama represented in 2009, they now must kowtow to the likes of Erickson and Hugh Hewitt and have even put them in pretty powerful positions. Hewitt, one of the biggest wingnut apologists and vacus thinkers alive today is going to be asking questions at the second republican debate while EE is going to have his way with the candidates in Georgia.

Ed Kilgore writes this about Pope Erickson:

Now you might think ol’ Erick’s just an inflated bloviater whose chosen style is the bullyboy threat of a political commissar. But the thing is he’s going to be the impresario of the Republican presidential cattle call next weekend (the Red State Gathering, in Atlanta) that will come immediately after the first candidate debate, with ten candidates currently confirmed: Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Rick Perry, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Bobby Jindal, and yes, even Donald Trump. This will be the event at which “winners” at the debate try to spin madly and consolidate their gains, while “losers” seek to make a quick recovery. It’s a pretty big deal, and additionally, historians will someday recognize that its counter-scheduling against the Iowa Straw Poll had a lot to do with that one-time major “winnowing” event falling to its death.

I somehow don’t think any of these candidates are going to be allowed to leave Atlanta without answering their host’s insanely furious demands for a government shutdown to “defund” Planned Parenthood.
