Almost every week, Republicans join a competition to see who can say the most outlandish things, and in the process, they push the envelope on just how nutty InsaniTEA can become.

Here's a beautiful example of a false strawman analogy:

Reports of Ben Carson’s stupidity and inability to grasp foreign policy may (or may not) have been greatly exaggerated. But reports that he is an evil mother*cker have not. In his usual semi-somnambulant state, Carson compared Syrian refugees to “rabid dogs” this week in a piece of rhetoric that really does, no exaggeration, rival Hitler.

"If there is a rabid dog running around your neighborhood, you're probably not going to assume something good about that dog. And you're probably going to put your children out of the way," Carson said at a campaign event in Mobile, Alabama. "Doesn't mean that you hate all dogs, by any stretch of the imagination. But you're putting your intellect into motion and you're thinking, how do I protect my children?

Hmmm, let’s see, how many dog whistles can he blow at one time?

"By the same token, we have to have in place screening mechanisms that allow us to determine who the mad dogs are, quite frankly," Carson continued obviously pleased as punch with his metaphor. "Who are the people who want to come in here and hurt us and want to destroy us? Until we know how to do that, just like it would be foolish to put your child out into the neighborhood knowing that that was going on, it is foolish for us to accept people if we cannot have the appropriate type of screening."

AlterNet: Carson has lost his mind, or what's left of it. How extremely offensive and vile.

Trump, Cruz, Kasick = xenophobic, lying, bigots.

What amazes me is that rooms are packed when these clowns speak. That's what is really scary!!

Thanks, Lynn for posting.

"In his usual semi-somnambulant state." - that does describe Carson to a Tee! All of them are disgusting and shameful...how embarrassing for America to think these are the best we can offer?

These are clear examples of the dog whistle politics that is part of the current greatly extended republican presidential campaign instead of getting rid of the dross, the dross have taken over. Dr Ben Carson is trying to out-trump the Donald with his softly spoken yet incredibly ignorant comments. The shameless opportunism to exploit the tragedy of the massacre in Paris with yet more Islamophobic rhetoric with Trump's comments about having a database on all Muslims to Carson's of having a database on everyone.

The only problem with a single issue collection like this is that they all sound so alike. There is no attempt to actually see things or to actually think; the closes they get to creativity or even thought is to try to phrase the hate differently. Is that, for their base, a strength of the right? Does that base see us as confused, as not knowing what we think, as not having any actual plans? Yes, what I am saying here scares me too.

Has anyone read "What Do You Buy the Children of the Terrorist who Tried to Kill Your Wife?: A Memoir" by David Harris Gershon? I admit I have not, only read about it, but what I know about it keeps coming to mind as I read these ... Republicans.

Carson: a rabid brain dead nobody at home dog. poor knowledge of foreign affairs and cultures.

Trump 1: reminisce‎s of Hitler and his "management" of jews, gypsies.

Trump 2: a copier and thief of ideas. very limited foreign policy understandings.

Cruz: a secret and understated, "unwanted", immigrant who is a bigot himself.

Kasich: A GOP "KKKer" espousing "Christian" values such as "“Equality for women, respecting science and education, the importance of recognizing that every single life matters." LIAR! separation of religion and government.

Roanoke mayor David Bower: Inter thyself.

My feeling about certain candidates with the people packing the rooms, halls are there for entertainment and laughs on these so-called GOP candidates. What percentage are there just for laughs is unknown. These GOP candidates are NOT the best America has to offer; they are the worst bottom feeders the GOP has to offer at this point in time.

There are times I wish I could just put up a big emoticon with it's mouth hanging open wide, somewhere between flabbergasted and disgusted and be done with commenting. I've waded through all six of these comments before starting dinner, trying to save on barf bags, and had a very hard time picking the one which flabbergasted/ disgusted me the most: Carson's Rabid Dogs, Trump's Muslim Registry, Trump's Obama flooding the Country with Muslims with Evil Intent, Cruz's Lie that Muslims are compelled to Lie; it’s in the Quran, Kasich's Federal Agency to promote “Judeo-Christian” Values while banning Refugees or Roanoke Democratic mayor's Cool Internment Camps. By volume it should be Trumps, but I think it's a draw: they're equally vile and disgusting.

The Republican hopefuls have sunk so low that they not only cater to the views rabid base of extremist Islamophobes, they're also shamelessly using their language to describe the refugees and Muslims in general: derogatory, hateful and dehumanizing. They are not only trying to whip up fear, with their racist and demeaning language they're also whipping up hatred and violence.

What none of them realize is that they have allied themselves to Da'esh with their fear and hate mongering against the Syrian refugees. Da'esh hates and despises the Syrians who have fled their country because they have fled the Islamic Caliphate and by doing so show the world it isn't the perfect Islamic paradise they are propagating. Europe and America couldn't do Da'esh a bigger favor than not letting the Syrian refugees in. It is exactly what they want for these 'cowards' fleeing their caliphate instead of obeying and propagating it.

I clicked through, and my mind is reeling with the BS with which I was confronted. I love the line about American values and "Wait a minute, has anyone told the Republicans about this?" How can these jackasses be so blind about their blindness?

The question put to Trump, by the interviewer from the right, is so much set-up line: "What do you think about Obama flooding the country with Syrians?" Flooding? This is like asking a diffrent version of the well known question "When do you think he stopped beating his wife?"

It all reminds me of another well known line: "You can't make this stuff up!"

From my still boggled mind, I can hear a word emanating: Whackadoodles!

As I said to Nameless, the scariest part to me is how many people will be voting for one of these nuts.

We laugh and shake our heads in disbelief at comments made by these "candidates" but frighteningly a large segment of our society will be voting for one of them for President.

I agree Pat that it is very scary when rooms are packed to hear these Republican idiots speak!

Mitch, I think Canada with its population of 34 million, has accepted more Syrians over the past few years than the US with its population of 330 million. What's more, we are aiming at another 25,000 by 31/12/15 while the US is looking at only 10,000 by the end of 2016. I don't call that a flood. Very big difference in national attitudes!

With a group like this, is it any wonder that voter turn out is so low?

Thanks everyone!
