It appears that Mitt Romney's move toward the political center is having a wider impact than originally anticipated. No sooner had the candidate at the top of the GOP ticket backed away from his contention that 47% of Americans are barely worthy of serving as dressage horse stable hands, this bleeding heart syndrome has begun to infect even the most rock-ribbed of conservative state parties.
The latest to be struck down by viral liberalism is the Arkansas Republican Party. Ever since a takeover the State House appeared in sight, the state GOP has offered support to the likes of State Rep. Jon Hubbard, author of Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative and opinions such as, "the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise."
Similar views were held by fellow State Representative Loy Mauch, who called Abraham Lincoln a "war criminal" in a 2007 letter and wrote "Jesus Christ did condone slavery" in a 2009 letter to the editor.
And, with the help of a $2,500 in-kind contribution of the state Republican Party, they were about to be joined in the legislature by Charlie Fuqua and his slogan: Think of the children. Then kill them…
The maintenance of civil order in society rests on the foundation of family discipline. Therefore, a child who disrespects his parents must be permanently removed from society in a way that gives an example to all other children of the importance of respect for parents. The death penalty for rebellious children is not something to be taken lightly. The guidelines for administering the death penalty to rebellious children are given in Deut 21:18-21…
Even though this procedure would rarely be used, if it were the law of land, it would give parents authority. Children would know that their parents had authority and it would be a tremendous incentive for children to give proper respect to their parents.
But now, the Arkansas Republican Party is suspending their financial support for these candidates — though it's stopped short of asking them to withdraw — all because these pro-slavery, pro-child murder positions have attracted national attention. What's next, Arkansas GOP? Are you going to let Jews own property? Will your platform support women's suffrage? Conservative Americans deserve a choice, not an echo!
