Quote of the Day
"I'm tired of being divided against each other for political reasons like this president's done. Always pitting people against each other. Always! Look at today: He gave a speech at a mosque. Oh, you know, basically implying that America is discriminating against Muslims. Of course there's discrimination in America, of every kind. But the bigger issue is radical Islam. And by the way, radical Islam poses a threat to Muslims themselves. They argue that. They'll tell you that. But again, it's this constant pitting people against each other. I can't stand that. It's hurting our country badly."
-- Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), demonstrating why he's not even remotely the "moderate" GOP candidate in the field, but only appears that way when compared to radical, fascist-like right-wing zealots Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, and instead is actually just as hurtful, divisive and dangerous as one would expect from someone on the far right, making sure here to frighten and shamelessly pander to the racist part of his base by pointing at all Muslims -- who indeed are being discriminated against, no "implying" necessary -- and intentionally conflating them with the fearful specter of radical Islamic terrorists, proving his very own discrimination by suggesting that the President of the United States shouldn't even visit (!!) a normal, everyday, purely 100% peaceful mosque to embrace and unite all Americans in a purely 100% peaceful effort to show that every religion is, in fact, protected under the First Amendment, which ultimately is the job of the President, thereby establishing why Mr. Rubio doesn't understand the job and isn't qualified for it.
I have nothing else to say here. Marco Rubio damned himself just fine all on his own with his own words.
Only one thing. I'm tired of being divided against each other for political reasons like Marco Rubio and far-right Republicans have done. I can't stand that. It's hurting our country badly.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. Rubio seems quite intolerant and stern.

Which is impressive, since he is such an empty shirt, there is nothing for him to be intolerant or stern about...
