Darren Bailey Has a Darren Bailey Problem

Darren Bailey is an far-right crackpot Republican politician who is currently serving in the Illinois Senate for the 55th district.  He is also the Illinois Republican party's nominee for governor.

In Darren Bailey, Illinois Republican found a candidate who most accurately and loudly reflected their values.

And now they're choking on it.  From NBC Chicago:

Darren Bailey Faces Intense Backlash After Footage Surfaces of Him Comparing Abortion to the Holocaust

Bailey, who won the party’s nomination to take on incumbent Gov. J.B. Pritzker in November, made the comments while he was running for the Illinois House in 2017.

“The attempted extermination of the Jews of World War II doesn’t even compare on a shadow of the life that has been lost with abortion,” he said during the interview.

The footage was re-published by Forward, a national Jewish newspaper, earlier this week.

Bailey's race isn't getting much national attention because almost anyone with eyes with which to see and fingers with which to count is pretty sure that Bailey is going to get stomped by J.B. Pritzker this fall.  The only wagering is on the spread.  

But my larger point is this: the real experts on what the Republican party actually looks like under the mask have always been those of us who live out here among them in flyover country.  We don't have to run polls and focus groups to figure out what these mopes are really thinking.  

All we've ever had to do is keep our ears open when we're at the grocery store or at the bar or in the church parlor or at a city council meeting.  

Because kids, they are not shy about it.

The righties you address may not be shy about it. But,,,,,
They are completely incapable of self reflection. Ability to hear and consider any other views than what is fed to them.

As we see from time to time, the right wing Hoover wealthy republican donors cannot tube feed every zombie on every issue.
There are needles in the hay stack they just cannot find and propagandize. Too many. It is why they are on message over few things.
Right wing media has ben brewing white supremacy for a long time and it has boiled the brains of many who Rushbo would refer to as those he wanted to fill their minds full of mush.
The small government republicans decided that Democrats have something about big government deciding how to manage their new property, *women).
FOX has been calling for white people to have more babies as they report on demographics of voters.
Kansas voted to override their state supreme court decision failed even putting the vote on the GOP primary ballot.
What the vote did not stop was, the State legislature republicans from getting ready made abortion restrictions that allow abortion to be legal but criminalizes the abortions perform.
It is a sad day in America when a president (democratic president) finds it necessary to sign an executive order to protect the travels of American women.

Realize this, David Duke or whom ever the KK grand dragon may be. If his 11 year old daughter or grand daughter is impregnated by an minority. Abortion will occur. For if anyone believes a white supremacist will allow any female family member to carry to term a "lesser human: (skin color you know)), Better rethink themselves if they do not understand they will abort such a thing.

No, they most certainly are "not shy about it."

These GOPers would invite Adolf to CPC if CPAC existed during that time.

To this day I have not seen anything that comes close to matching the GOP's enthusiastic willingness to break their God of their Bible's commandment of, Not holding up any Icon or Idol above the one true.
With Trump losing some of that chosen one magic, they are lifting their new idol who comes out of Florida.
For he will come and use big government to punish those the Profit/Prophet FOX burning bush channel has told me who to hate and erase from the Earth.

They all have their manifesto to Anarchy in which they believe will give them the vacuum to rise as emperor.
