I think it's time to take off the kid gloves.
Republicans love terrorism and terrorists. Terrorists kill lots of gays, non-white people and non-Christians. They often attack big cities where there are lots of poor people, non-whites, liberals, and foreigners.
To Republicans, this is a godsend and I'm sure many of them were laughing behind closed doors when "Jew owned New York/Kike City" as they call it was attacked. They probably dusted off their profits bean-counters and started calculating how many gays, liberals, poor people, illegals, non-whites and foreigners died when the Twin Towers collapsed, and took a shot and forwarded e-mails to their friends every time "some dumb welfare nigger" came up in the obituaries or media specials.
They were undoubtedly overjoyed and kept their jars of crocodile tears on hand.
It's a win-win for them, thousands of their political enemies died and now they have free-reign to terrorize countries they don't like or want to steal resources from.
Their attempts to block the first responders bill should make this all obvious. Firemen, police officers? They're just "working class trash" and if they're white, they're Catholic at best, so why did Republicans have the gall to act like they were sad at all about something that happened in New York? New York is practically a foreign country to 95% of cons. They are more willing to defend the Saudis than their "fellow Americans" in liberal states.
IMO they just wanted an excuse to bring all their guns, flags, moonshine and Bibles out and have a good time.
