There's no shortage of conservatives who were disappointed by the 2012 elections, but Peter Morrison, the treasurer of the Hardin County Republican Party in Texas, seems more troubled than most.
"We must contest every single inch of ground and delay the baby-murdering, tax-raising socialists at every opportunity," Morrison wrote [in a Tea Party newsletter]. "But in due time, the maggots will have eaten every morsel of flesh off of the rotting corpse of the Republic, and therein lies our opportunity."
"Texas was once its own country, and many Texans already think in nationalist terms about their state. We need to do everything possible to encourage a long-term shift in thinking on this issue. Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government? Let each go her own way in peace, sign a free trade agreement among the states and we can avoid this gut-wrenching spectacle every four years," he wrote.
Morrison added that "many members of minority groups are simply racist against the party most white people happen to vote for." The irony-impaired activist went on to argue that Asian Americans should be Republican because "they earn more money and pay more in taxes than white Americans."
In case Morrison's name sounds familiar, Jillian Rayfield noted that he helped screen Texas public-school textbooks.
No, seriously. The guy who sees Democratic voters as baby-murdering maggots was appointed by Texas Board of Education Chairman Don McLeroy to help screen textbooks for kids.
