Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative

When one thinks of the mindset of a Republican in Arkansas, it is not hard to imagine them being pretty extreme. It is along that line of thinking that I will present quotes from the book “Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative” written by Republican Legislator Jon Hubbard of Jonesboro, Arkansas.

For my racist readers (and I know you’re there,) this is a book that you’re going to love. It’s not only chock full of bigoted statements, it even includes the prediction of a full-on race war similar to what we saw in Nazi Germany. It’s yet another peek into the mind of another elected member of the GOP. It’s filled with contradictions and horrible interpretations of Biblical scripture.

Here is a list of some of the choice quotes as compiled by the Arkansas Times.

Slavery was good for black people:

“… the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth.” (Pages 183-89)

If you think slavery was bad, you should have seen Africa:

African Americans must “understand that even while in the throes of slavery, their lives as Americans are likely much better than they ever would have enjoyed living in sub-Saharan Africa.”

“Knowing what we know today about life on the African continent, would an existence spent in slavery have been any crueler than a life spent in sub-Saharan Africa?” (Pages 93 and 189)

Black people are ignorant:

“Wouldn’t life for blacks in America today be more enjoyable and successful if they would only learn to appreciate the value of a good education?” (Page 184)

Integration was bad for white people and black people are lazy:

“… one of the stated purposes of school integration was to bring black students up to a level close to that of white students. But, to the great disappointment of everyone, the results of this theory worked exactly in reverse of its intended purpose, and instead of black students rising to the educational levels previously attained by white students, the white students dropped to the level of black students. To make matters worse the lack of discipline and ambition of black students soon became shared by their white classmates, and our educational system has been in a steady decline ever since.” (Page 27)

It’s basically hopeless:

“… will it ever become possible for black people in the United States of America to firmly establish themselves as inclusive and contributing members of society within this country?” (Page 187)

Immigration is bad:

..the immigration issue, both legal and illegal… will lead to planned wars or extermination. Although now this seems to be barbaric and uncivilized, it will at some point become as necessary as eating and breathing.” (Page 9)

Don’t forget Nazi Germany:

“American Christians are assuming a similar stance as did the citizens of Germany during Hitler’s rise to power.” (Page 158)

Now that should whet your appetite. Get out there and grab a copy. Only one elected Republican wrote it but he’s far from being alone in sharing the book’s sentiments. Finally, there is an owner’s manual for the modern Republican “Christian” mind.

    Nothing better going on in Smyrna? This is a very simplistic and juvenile website which adds nothing to the political debate. I’m guessing all Southerners are mildly retarded and do not have the capacity to critically think their way out of a paper bag.

  2. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any
    way you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!

  3. Simpply write down your full name as stated on your birth certificate and put the corresponding number under each vowel.
    An individual whose title respponds towards the vibration of six
    are regularly misinterpreted. Below is an excerpt from the informjation included with our.

  4. What’s up, just wanted to mention, I liked this article.
    It was inspiring. Keep on posting!

    This post provides clear idea in favor of the new visitors of blogging, that in fact how to do running a
    blog.

  6. Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, awesome blog!

    Great blog. I always knew Republicans/Conservatives were racist but I never thought they were this bad.

  8. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I ecounter a blog that’s eqully educative
    and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve
    hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not
    enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for soomething concerning this.

  9. Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design.

    Great choice of colors!

  10. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your blog.
    You have some really great articles and I feel I would be a good asset.

    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love
    to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to
    mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Cheers!

  11. Right here is the perfect blog for anyone who wants to understand
    this topic. You realize so much its almost tough to argue with
    you (not that I really will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a
    new spin on a topic that has been discussed for decades. Wonderful
    stuff, just wonderful!

    I’m almost shocked to see that there are no comments on here supporting this guy and his book…I guess they’re just too extreme for even the trolls on this site to defend. I never thought I’d see the day that a glaring example of racism would shut racists up.
