This is a four part Blog delving into the GOP and what primitive instinctive urges drive their obsessive compulsive and destructive behavior.
Part 1 deals with the war on women. Part 2 deals with Republicans economics. Part 3 deals with their addiction to firearms while part 4 deals with their need to make themselves superior by ensuring racial inequality.
You have probably heard the term “winners and losers” or “strong versus weak”, “the hunter and the hunted.” These are based on a primeval instructions buried deep within our subconscious mind. In cave man days it meant the strongest ate first and lasted the longest. Today it effects every aspects of our lives including sports. Just take a look at this years Super Bowl winner, or better yet all the teams that didn’t win the Super Bowl; one winner, many losers.
The basic law of the land is that there has to be more losers than winners. Imagine what would happen at a horse racing track if everyone bet on the horse that won. How would they pay the winners?
And then there is the basic law of winning, the need to feel like a winner, to lord it over others and to bask in the glory of it all. Do you remember Leona Helmsley the flamboyant business women also known as the Queen of Mean who ended up going to prison for tax evasion? There are a few interesting notable quotes associated with her tyrannical financial empire such as, “We don’t pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes…” And then there is, “What’s the point of being rich, if there are no poor people around.” Of course, while the GOP is intended to be a male dominate club, they tolerate women who are rich, ruthless, masculine or serve to further their agenda.
This brings up to the point of separation on which the world of the GOP is based; the world of predators and prey. In the world of hunting, the separation of predator and prey is obvious. The hunter is the one with the gun and the prey is the one bleeding on the ground.
In the GOP’s war on women, it is also obvious. You have a macho man who runs his life like a bunch of little kingdoms, one at home, one at work and one wherever he happens to be. And then you have women who are animated objects who are there for the sole purpose of catering to the needs of the man. And man must be served either voluntarily or by force or coercion.
The best example of this philosophy is in the area of the rape of a woman. Here the man fulfills his role as the predator and the women is relegated to her role as the prey. The man is the winner, the women is the loser. The man gets to hunt, use his weapon and then bask in the glory of his actions. From the perspective of the GOP, that is all that matters, the victim is not important.
We see proof of this in the attempt of GOP Senators to legitimize rape or to find ways of protecting the rapist by blaming women for enticing the act. Rape must be the women’s fault. Just like it’s the deer’s fault to be drinking at a watering hole right in front of the hunters gun.
Now, while not all GOP think this way, consider former Senator Todd Akin. For this man to believe that somehow a women’s body has an ability to shut off getting pregnant, if raped, shows the mental conditioning of the GOP male that I am referring to. Todd is worried about the woman getting pregnant. He is oblivious to fact that an act of violence has occurred. Rape is not about sex. It is about “the hunt”. It is about control. It is about the use of force. It is a predatory act. And because the hunter believes that hunting, in this way, is a perfectly normal thing to do, he must try to legitimize it, explain it, defend it and perpetuate his right to do it.
The GOP has chosen to take up the fight to legitimize, protect and perpetuate rape through misleading and misguided laws to make it more difficult to prosecute the rapist and to even give the rapist paternal rights if a child is born out of that rape.
Remember, in the mind of the GOP and the world of predators, there must be losers, there must be women to prey on, otherwise, there can be no hunters, there can be no winners, there can be no kingdoms.
I do not believe that it is possible for these people, GOP men, TeaBaggers, to change the way they do business. This is what they believe. It is how they were raised. It is how they have carried on for their entire lives. It is buried deep inside their evil souls.
Despite the losses in the 2012 election in which the war on women was a factor, the GOP has done nothing but continue the drum beat to protect the rapist and ignore the victims of rape.
These TeaParty GOP’ers who have been flushed out of their holes and into the public eye are doing in front of cameras and newsmen what stealthier GOP’ers have been doing for decades. No we can see them in all their horrific glory and maybe now that they are out of their closet we can begin to re-educate them into civilized society.
