The gift that keeps giving

... for laughs, that is -- and that would be Jason "Trust Fund" Scott over at the LGOMB who helps his fellow faux progressives slip further into insane moonbattery. The issue?

A local state senator, Colin Bonini, is using campaign signs that read "It's YOUR money." According to Trust Fund Scott, these signs are -- wait for it! -- racist (oh, and "un-American"):

The the line: “it’s YOUR money” is pure GOP dog whistle racism and this is how it works.

The whole republican [sic] system is about nursing grievances. It is about division and, ginning up outrage. It is a strategy that is inherently un-American because the whole the point of Democracy [sic] is to come together in goodwill and solve problems. Coming together to solve problems is something we’ve been able to accomplish for two-hundred years.

Blessed with abundant material wealth, we’ve elected governments to plan for the future, deliberate and collectively implement beneficial projects. On the local, state and national level, we have instituted systems which pool our money in order to invest it in schools, infra-structure, research, and all manner of civilization building projects large and small. To paraphrase Oliver Wendell Holmes, we all chip in to have a civilized society. It is OUR money.

Republicans like Bonini are more interested in power than that are [sic] in civilization or even democracy. They have taken the cynical, divisive course of painting ALL taxes as theft. For Bonini all taxes are confiscatory. It is not OUR money. It is YOUR money, and that is where the racism comes in.

The Republican gripes and grievances theme is so baked into modern American politics that he does Bonini [sic] does not even need to make the racism explicit. The slogan “It is YOUR money” implies the grievance that all Republican politicians are playing on. It is YOUR money – don’t let THEM spend YOUR money on unworthy back [sic] and brown people. (Ronald Reagan, may you rot in hell for what you’ve wrought.)

You really can't stretch reality (and credibility) more than that, folks. There may not be a better example of why this cadre is called The Local Gaggle of Moonbat Bloggers (LGOMB). Really. I mean, c'mon -- why not just invent crap out of thin air if you're going to post insane garbage like this?

It must be just another side effect of Scott having been handed everything to him in life, so outright boredom probably plays a role. But I'm still betting some mental deficiency is the bigger factor.

You should also note the unspoken racist assumption in his comments: only white people pay taxes. And only "unworthy back[sic] and brown people" get money from the government.

They banned me, my last 3 post never made it.

I changed my name, its pretty obvious. Lets see how long it takes them to figure it out.

Ah, that "tolerant" Left, eh John?

Just make sure you don't have a static IP addy and any banning should prove futile.

Just remember the LGOMB view of dissent -- it is the highest form of patriotism when it comes from the Left, and it is unAmerican and racist when it comes from the Right.

"It is a strategy that is inherently un-American because the whole the point of Democracy [sic] is to come together in goodwill and solve problems."

Sorry that was the straw that broke this whole thing. I'd like him to cite one example of him using goodwill for anyone in the GOP who is actually saying something he doesn't agree with.
