Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

First it was Obama Derangement Syndrome and all the lovely insanity that came with it.  

Which led to Mitt Romney, the most dishonorable, unprincipled, hollow, insensitive, mendacious joke of a presidential candidate to ever grace the political stage, a man who won nearly half---47-something percent---of the national vote.  

Which led to the whiny neo-secessionists in all 50 States.

And now there's this MADNESS......

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

I initially thought it had to be from The Onion, but it's not.  This report is from Mother Jones, and that's what makes it so scary.

President Obama is using a Cold War-era mind-control technique known as "Delphi" to coerce Americans into accepting his plan for a United Nations-run communist dictatorship in which suburbanites will be forcibly relocated to cities. That's according to a four-hour briefing delivered to Republican state senators at the Georgia state Capitol last month.
No, you read that right.  They actually did this.  The GOP has gone absolutely batty by entertaining this nonsense.  They very well may be beyond our reach, and the sooner we realize this, the more likely we are to save the rest of the country.  This is a disease of the mind, born from racism, bigotry and fear.  
On October 11, at a closed-door meeting of the Republican caucus convened by the body's majority leader, Chip Rogers, a tea party activist told Republican lawmakers that Obama was mounting this most diabolical conspiracy.  The event—captured on tape by a member of the Athens-based watchdog Better Georgia (who was removed from the room after 52 minutes)—had been billed as an information session on Agenda 21, a nonbinding UN agreement that commits member nations to promote sustainable development. In the eyes of conservative activists, Agenda 21 is a nefarious plot that includes forcibly relocating non-urban-dwellers and prescribing mandatory contraception as a means of curbing population growth.
Here's the video below:

I encourage you to read the rest of this article.  It's an eye-opener.  Remember folks, in the past, absurdities like this were only found within the fringe elements of the party.  But now we have lawmakers giving an audience to this insanity.  

THEY ACTUALLY ATTENDED A SEMINAR ON THIS NONSENSE!

As an aside, the incredible Mother Jones visual below is an historical representation of most everything, (at least in my opinion) that Obama Derangement Syndrome has produced:

So, what the hell do we do with these people?  I'm at a loss.  

Seriously.

BTW, this latest GOP "Delphi" conspiracy theory qualifies as Stage 5 ODS.  There are 6 stages:

Stage 5 Obama Derangement Syndrome

As stage 5 ODS sets in, the assaults on the President's character begin to imply he is evil at his core. The development of conspiracies that suggest Obama is knowingly executing an agenda that will harm America are commonplace. Questions like, "Is Obama A Bigger Threat Than Al Qaeda?" and "Obama: A Radical Leftist Who Seeks To Dismantle Capitalism?" are common place.

4:26 PM PT: My darling husband just walked in the door and I told him about this.  His solution, and I quote: "Maybe we can get the Koch brothers to build a space craft and send all these dumb** to the moon."

4:53 PM PT: Thought I'd add this great comment from Uncle Cosmo

You haven't asked the central question: (3+ / 0-)

How much was Rogers paid to put this bit of tinfoil origami together? And by whom?

GOP: Grifters Obtain Paychecks...as Morning Joke commented last week, the party doesn't have an electoral strategy, it has a business strategy.

Or to paraphrase H. L. Mencken: No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the Republican base.

It's not a "fiscal cliff," it's a Fiscal Bluff--so why don't we call them on it?
