It seems like every morning, there is some new example of how far the republiKKKan lunatics are willing to go in their effort to out-crazy each other. The latest example is their furious attacks on the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution. This amendment states that all persons born in the United States are citizens by reason of being born in the United States. The craziness starts from their attack on this basic concept.
The 14th amendment was ratified in order to grant citizenship to former slaves after the Civil War. This automatically makes RWNJ hate it because it grants the franchise to black people in the United States. Of course the republiKKKan party wants to revoke this amendment because they are already doing everything else in their power to deny the vote to black Americans today.
It is worth noting that the concept of citizenship as a birthright was not questioned in the time prior to the 14th amendment being ratified. Everyone born in this country was a citizen, provided they were White. There was no citizenship test required of any white people to prove that they were citizens.
I doubt that the lunatics in the republiKKKan party understand what they are doing, other than attempting to create more hatred and racism with this stunt of theirs. It goes without saying that somehow there would be a loophole that automatically granted citizenship to RWNJ politicians and their followers while denying it to those who disagree with them.
The Nazis did something similar to this with the Nuremberg Laws which stripped Jews of their citizenship. This made it easier to persecute them and more importantly, allowed the average German citizen to view them as foreigners. This of course made it easier to enact the Holocaust. I am not suggesting that republiKKKans are planning anything like that, yet. It is worth keeping in mind as the debate moves forward.
RepubliKKKans have many similarities with the Nazis. It is considered bad to compare them to the Nazis, but the similarities are striking and bear watching.
In fact, there are 14 points that indicate Fascism is present. Do any or all of these sound familiar?
