    I’m sure the Republican Party will have something to say about this mega-merger. This will create an organization with an effective monopoly on women hatred, gay hatred and the adoration of guns, religion and violence.

    We have already seen the mom and pop bigots of the KKK, the Christian Identity Movement, the Survivalist Tinfoil hat-wearers and the Tea Party consumed under the larger Republican umbrella, if ISIS/Boko Haram merge with the Republican Party – as seems the next logical step, there will be only one place in the market for fascist shitheads to go. Whatever happened to good old fashioned competition?

    the innocent ones you murder.
