I can’t say I’m shocked in the least by this offering from a Jesusistani Klanbagger. Actually, I can’t say I’d be shocked if it passed. The Klanservatives of old Dixie fully intend to turn the clock back to 1859, and this would be a great start towards that end.

Think about it. Once you get this kind of a law passed, there’s just about no limit to what you can expand it to. Cheating wives, doctors who prescribe contraceptives, Sodomites, people who help slaves sneak across the border… this kind of a law has endless possibilities. I can hardly wait to see what kind of Neanderthal statutes they come up with across the rest of Jesusistan.

Jesus would want it that way, after all.

 

The last legal public hanging in America took place in 1936 in Owensboro, Kentucky. The “event” attracted 20,000 people and turned into such a sickening spectacle that many credit it with ending the practicein the U.S.

But one North Carolina Republican believes that as a country we’ve grown soft since banning public hangings and is calling for them to reinstated as a deterrent to crime. If Rep. Larry Pittman had his way, “abortionists, rapists, and kidnappers” would be first in line for the gallows:

Republican Rep. Larry Pittman, who was appointed to the District 82 House seat in October, expressed his views in an email sent Wednesday to every member of the General Assembly. [...]

“We need to make the death penalty a real deterrent again by actually carrying it out. Every appeal that can be made should have to be made at one time, not in a serial manner,” Pittman wrote in the email. “If murderers (and I would include abortionists, rapists, and kidnappers, as well) are actually executed, it will at least have the deterrent effect upon them. For my money, we should go back to public hangings, which would be more of a deterrent to others, as well.”

As ThinkProgress reported, last year Republicans in South Carolina, Nebraska, and Iowa pushed legislation that would essentially legalize the murder of abortion providers.

For the pillagers of the livelihoods of millions of innocent people, we have big bonuses and tax breaks. For those medical professionals foolish enough to go into the field of reproductive services, we have Klanservative calls for their heads. So Junior can be a sociopath that destroys entire economies, and he’ll get off scot free-hell, he’ll even be rewarded for it. But if Junior decides to go into Gynecology, he’d better watch it, lest he make a misstep and wind up swinging.

Is it any wonder we are turning out so many sociopath MBAs these days?
