    Republican Party. Still driven by fear and hate. It's all they have left

    It's all they have left. Punish and do harm to people who are not exactly like them. They have been the party of fear and hate for a long time and it just gets worse.

    There are so many example.

    Example 1

    Tennessee governor signs transgender sports bill into law requiring students to prove their sex at birth
    https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/26/us/te...law/index.html

    Example 2
    Here's why voting rights activists say Georgia's new election law targets Black voters
    https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/26/polit...ers/index.html

    I forget what state but just the other day a state passes a law explicitly allowing all kinds of discrimination against transgender.

    And over 100 new bills in the works aimed at making it harder for black people to vote.

    When will this repugnant party and it's voters finally die off?

    They are not really all that afraid.

    They are driven mostly by hatred and sadism.

    They hate those liberals with their feelings who care about their fellow man.

    And they cheer the death of people their government tells them are the enemy.

    GOP lawmakers send discriminatory anti-LGBTQ 'religious freedom' bill to Montana governor's desk
    https://www.rawstory.com/lgbtq/

    Lawmakers in the Montana House and Senate have passed a "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" bill that will allow any person or business to discriminate against anyone for any reason if not doing so would violate their religious beliefs.
    What wonderful fearful and hateful Republicans. Despicable!

    I guess any business could discriminate against anyone at all by claiming religion as a reason.

    They're going down the list.

    The L's, the G's and the B's are off the table thanks to the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. Sexual orientation is now protected.

    So they went all "wait...you didn't rule on the T's! We can still discriminate against them!"

    They moved their target. If our society says "actually, you can't discriminate against the transgender people" they will simply move onto the next group.


    This is what they do. They find someone to discriminate against, and when that fails, they find someone else. Oh my god, the trans people are going to destroy America. Just like the interracial marriage was supposed to. Just like the gay marriage was supposed to. Pick a letter from the alphabet, and they'll figure out a way to discriminate.

    I haven't read anything about the law that says religionists can start with the A's for Atheist or Agnostic

    I’d be ok with this if we then get to hold them legally liable for not following all tenets of their religion.

    All or nothing, baby! You want to be religious? Fine. But not just when it is convenient for you.

    Former House Speaker John Boehner, someone I didn't like one little bit, describes how the Republican party became crazy.

    https://www.rawstory.com/john-boehner-fox-news/

    Former House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, detailed how Fox News ushered in the rise of the Republican "crazy caucus" during the Obama era in his upcoming book "On the House," paving the way for the rise of Donald Trump and fringe figures like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.

    Regarding the OP title, we need to make a distinction here. Republican politicians and their donor elite fat cats aren't driven by fear and hate. They are driven by greed.

    IMO, These Republicans only monger the fear and hate so they can collect the votes they need to cut taxes, stymie regulations, and roll some pork. Corruption in the system is the deeper problem... or at least it used to be.

    ...and there's no way they're going utter one harsh word about Q, for fear of alienating the Qonspiracy nuts.
    That leaves "T"... and they're hard at it (pun intended).

    The Crazy Caucus started with Nutty Newt Gingrich's scorched earth politics. The GOP couldn't climb aboard the Nutty Newt crazy train fast enough.
