One of the wonders of the modern world is the capacity for Republicans to be some of the most outspoken racists in the world and still be taken seriously as a political party. It’s gotten far worse in recent years as mainstream Republicans have actually started to advocate the position, openly, mind you, that slavery wasn’t so bad.
Well, here’s Republican Rep. Loy Mauch. A staunch Neo-Confederate that is “very proud my ancestors stood up to Northern aggression. The Confederate flag to me is not only a symbol of our brief period of independence and our loyalty to the 1789 Constitution, but also a symbol of Christian liberty vs. the new world order.”
You can see this is only going to go downhill from here.
The ArkansasBlog reports that Mauch spent several years sending numerous letters to the Democrat-Gazette detailing his true feelings on matters ranging from:
How he feels about Lincoln:
This country already lionizes Wehrmacht leaders. They go by the names of Lincoln, Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, Custer, etc. These Marxists not only destroyed the Constitution they were sworn to uphold, but apostatized the word of God. Either these depraved infidels or the Constitution and Scriptures are in error. I’m more persuaded by the word of God.
I would like to thank this newspaper’s editorialist for publishing the tribute to Abraham Lincoln as well as his second inaugural address so that the readers can see for themselves what a fake this neurotic Northern war criminal truly was.
To how awesome slavery was because the Bible DIDN’T say it was bad:
Nowhere in the Holy Bible have I found a word of condemnation for the operation of slavery, Old or New Testament. If slavery was so bad, why didn’t Jesus, Paul or the prophets say something?
… If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861?
The South has always stood by the Constitution and limited government. When one attacks the Confederate Battle Flag, he is certainly denouncing these principles of government as well as Christianity.
Well, that is certainly an enlightening look into the mind of a Republican law-maker. The Bible says that you can only a slave from a neighboring country. Do you suppose Mauch would be fine with a Mexican owning his daughter? The Bible clearly states that he can sell her. I’ll bet my left pinkie toe that would be absolutely unacceptable. How about a rich black man owning white slaves? I bet that would be a serious problem for Mauch as well. Now why do you suppose that is?
