I was one of the many progressives that had to reassess things a bit after the last election. The comments made about that reassessment…okay, they weren’t about the reassessment but they attached to the post…make need to ask the question in the title of Republicans in general.
Make no mistake, my goals haven’t changed because they’ve never been attached to any particular political party. And my views haven’t changed…I still see him as a prancing absurdity.
But it was said:
To state the blindingly obvious, Keyes is not even vaguely representative of the Republican Party.
Alan Keyes was a joke. Republicans, Democrats, Independents, etc. all knew that.
Equating him with the national GOP is insane.
And yet Alan Keyes’ positions are precisely those of the Religious Right., a significant part of the alliance that is the Republican Party.
Are these comments correct? I don’t think so…I think the Religious Right is a major, significant part of the Republican Party. I think it has a huge impact on the Party’s platform, statements and actions. So why have so many Republicans distanced themselves from him? Why is he so disrespected by his own Party?
