Now, that’s entertainment. Loy Mauch edition.

The cartoonist would seem to be this gentleman. He’s pretty good. Via Bartcop.

Republicans get very defensive when people question whether some of their leaders might be racists, and generally try to turn the conversation to the late Robert Byrd. But of course the answer is that Robert Byrd was born in 1917 and, at worst, voted to retain southerners’ exorbitant white privilege in the form of the Jim Crow laws. Byrd is also very much dead.

By contrast, Loy Mauch, a Teapublican Arkansas state legislator, was born in 1951. He is currently in favor of slavery. He is alive. As is his colleague in the legislature, Jon Hubbard:

State Republican Party leaders have announced that they will no longer be offering support to Reps. Jon Hubbard and Loy Mauch, along with former state Rep. Charlie Fuqua who is seeking a return to the state House.

On Friday, the Arkansas Times reported that Hubbard called slavery “a blessing” in a 2010 book, while Mauch wrote a series of letters to the editor over the last decade supporting slavery and opposing former President Abraham Lincoln, while also organizing an event with a keynote address in favor of Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth.

And this is not to mention Charlie Fuqua, another Teapublican, who is not in favor of slavery, just killing kids and conducting a religious purge:

Fuqua wrote in a 2012 book that he supports deporting all Muslims and wants to create a system that would allow parents to seek judicial consent to kill rebellious children.

It’s really nice that the state’s senior Republicans, like Tim Griffin, are running from their financial support for their Teapublican brethren. But since Tim Griffin was a prime player in a conspiracy directed from the White House to prevent African Americans–especially those serving the country in Iraq and Afghanistan– from voting, one would have to say that he shares their views, but prefers to express them in a more refined manner.

Anyway, it turns out that Loy Mauch has a lot of interesting opinions:

The economic fallacy of mercantilism is that the public must be intentionally miseducated in economics for it to survive, which has been a work in progress ever since the Federal Reserve usurped our constitutional monetary system in 1913. The Republocrats are now partners in crime with a guaranteed monopoly in theft by majority vote and rule with the illusion of liberty that our Founding Fathers would have called abject slavery.

The 14th Amendment completely destroyed the Founders’ concept of limited government and was coerced on this nation by radical people and in my opinion was never legally ratified as required by Article V of the Constitution. It was essentially a Karl Marx concept and would have never come from the pen of Madison or any of the patriots from Virginia.

… If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861?
The South has always stood by the Constitution and limited government. When one attacks the Confederate Battle Flag, he is certainly denouncing these principles of government as well as Christianity.

I would like to thank this newspaper’s editorialist for publishing the tribute to Abraham Lincoln as well as his second inaugural address so that the readers can see for themselves what a fake this neurotic Northern war criminal truly was.

Krishna Thiagarajan has written about the most imbecelic letter to this newpaper that I have read in quite some time where she compares Robert E. Lee to Hermann Goering. …

To those of us who actually know our history, Lee will be mentioned in the same breath as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, while Goering will be equated with Lincoln, Josef Stalin and Karl Marx.

Nowhere in the Holy Bible have I found a word of condemnation for the operation of slavery, Old or New Testament. If slavery was so bad, why didn’t Jesus, Paul or the prophets say something?
This country already lionizes Wehrmacht leaders. They go by the names of Lincoln, Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, Custer, etc. These Marxists not only destroyed the Constitution they were sworn to uphold, but apostatized the word of God. Either these depraved infidels or the Constitution and Scriptures are in error. I’m more persuaded by the word of God.

Angi Taylor’s guest column about Juneteenth is well intended, but predictably goose steps with the cult of Lincoln.

The part of her article that says “Lincoln was for a legal system based on integrity” is hilarious. How can any elected official who swears to uphold the Constitution, then proceeds to commit premeditated murder upon it, be acknowledged [for] having integrity?

I’m very proud my ancestors stood up to Northern aggression. The Confederate flag to me is not only a symbol of our brief period of independence and our loyalty to the 1789 Constitution, but also a symbol of Christian liberty vs. the new world order.

Teapublicans like Mauch are running the Congress. With the exception of Alan West and Michelle Bachmann, they’re smart enough not to publish their bizarre views in the newspaper. But they’re there, trying to declare fertilized eggs to be human beings, calling Barack Obama a terrorist sympathizer, and demanding a return to the gold standard.
