It couldn't be more clear. The GOP is the party of exclusion and hate. John McCain defends Hillary Clinton's aide Huma Abedin, who is Muslim, against attacks by Michele Bachmann and her ilk. The republican party, as a whole, believe that all Muslims are infiltrating. That's just a fact.
GOP is a fear-based party. Fear mongering is its specialty.
At the heart of the GOP is the belief that people of color have destroyed the US economy for the white people, which is why they spend so much time hating on Obama. Obama becoming president was the party's worst nightmare.
The GOP doesn't say this out loud or even admit this to itself. Instead the hate surfaces in other ways, such as birther extremism and harsh immigration policies. Even if I agreed with GOP economic trickle down principles, I would never be a member of a party that hates so many people.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) struck back hard at unproven accusations Wednesday that a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is part of a conspiracy by the Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate the top reaches of the U.S. government.
McCain, often considered the GOP’s leading voice on foreign affairs, said the accusations made by House Republicans against Huma Abedin are “an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable woman, a dedicated American and a loyal public servant.”
McCain recounted recent accusations by Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) and Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) that Abedin, who is a Muslim America, is part of a conspiracy led by the Muslim Brotherhood to influence U.S. foreign policy to advance Islamist causes.
