Roy Nicholson, chairman of Mississippi’s Tea Party, opened a meeting this week with a “prayer” that would be difficult to identify as Christian.
The meeting was held to host conservative blogger Charles Johnson, who has fomented much of the controversy, misinformation, and paranoia about the hotly contested Senate primary between Teabagging loser and crybaby Chris McDaniel and the victorious Thad Cochran — the incumbent and more moderate Republican, who also bragged about doing “all kinds of indecent things with animals as a kid.”
One shudders to think about what he actually meant by that statement, but it speaks volumes about the horrifying state of Mississippi politics and deranged Teabagger candidates that Mr. Cochran still managed to win the election after making that bizarre confession.
Opening the meeting on Monday, Mr. Nicholson prayed:
We ask for your blessing upon the conservatives in this state, that they might stand strong and firm. Father, we even ask for you to bless our enemies, and Lord they are truly our enemies that head the Republican Party and the whole political establishment. We’re asking, Father, for two things. We’re asking, Father, that you would expose them, set division amongst them, set them one against another, bring confusion and fear into their camp, into their thinking, for the purpose of pulling them down, for casting them down out of their high offices and reducing them, Lord, to having no power in this state. So, Lord, that you might raise up and seek the righteous in the positions of power that this state might once more be a state that honors you in all that it does.”
Civil War in the Republican Party is definitely a good thing for America, however you won’t catch me in Mississippi any time soon. Yikes!
