Is The GOP Guilty of Decedent-ism?

Is The GOP Guilty of Decedent-ism?

In these dark days of political correctness, identity politics and wokeness, Democrats and much of the so-called news media have pointed the accusatorial finger at the Republican Party for a full range of isms and phobias – including, but not limited to, racism, sexism, ageism, misogynism, xenophobia and homophobia.

And yet they have ignored the GOP’s prejudice against one of the largest groups in America – and growing every day. 

I am talking about blatant decedent-ism.  That’s right.  A profound political prejudice against … the dead.

Democrats complain that the Republican efforts to purge the voting rolls of ineligible voters is racist.  That does not make sense since. Blacks are turning out in higher numbers and percentages than ever before. Particularly in states were Democrats say the suppression is the worst.

Democrats would be more productive if they looked at GOP efforts to remove folks from the voting rolls as decedent-ism.  All across America, Republican officials are working night and day to suppress the votes of dead people – those millions of Americans extending their right to vote into the afterlife.

Perhaps the reason for Republicans’ concern is that it appears that so many life-long GOP voters become postmortem Democrat voters.  This may explain why Democrats are so vehement in protecting the ability of the dead to vote.  Many suggest that the switch from R to D after death is because the dearly departed have moved on to a theoretical welfare state of some sort. 

The GOP attack on dead voters flies in the face of the many positive contributions deceased provide society every day. 

Mediums and psychics bring us specific messages from the dead.  We often see news reports of what dead people would have said or done in certain contemporary situations – President Reagan, President Lincoln and even Jesus Christ, for example.

We see the dead as sources of wisdom. When we find the correct future course, we attribute it to “dead reckoning.”  

People are alive today with internal organs of a dead person.  A lot of the deceased wind up in med schools.

If you watch Turner Classic Movies or METV, you will be entertained by actors and comedians who have left these mortal shores long ago.  Add that to character generating computer technology, and many of these same deceased celebrities can be totally re-created for brand new roles – a little like postmortem voting.

So… considering all the benefits we derive from the dead, why not let them vote? 

The only thing I can say with confidence is that claiming decedent-ism as an opposition argument against removing ineligible voters — and especially the dead — would be as rational, honest and productive as playing that old race card.  Did I make my point?

So, there ‘tis.

        Is it still April 1st? Anyone who takes Larry seriously is definitely a fool… he’s just out-and-out making up shit now… That said, it’s about as coherent as anything else he’s written…

          What in the article (other than exaggerations for the sake of humor) are you suggesting is inaccurate? Be specific now, so that it can be definitively determined whether Larry is wrong, or you are lying.

    Larry, I’m very excited for you! You’re going to be much more financially well off very soon!
    Texas Lt Governor is offering a million dollars for proof of voter fraud. Dead people voting would fit the bill! All you have to do is deliver the proof you sited in your post here… oh wait…

    • Larry P Horist

      Ben … is your television stuck on one channel. You seem to lack a curious mind. You can actually do the research yourself. Are you objecting to the number of ineligible and dead voters on the rolls … or how may were voted? There is tons of information on both if you are not afraid to look it up.

      • Ben

        Larry ,I don’t watch tv. I don’t have cable, I don’t have a HD antenna, occasionally a Netflix movie, but there’s not even a tv in the family room.

        Now, why should I research your claims? They are your claims. As a “journalist”, part of making your point is providing evidence to back your point of view up.

        You are the one making allegations. One would think if you had proof you would provide the evidence in your article, but for some reason, you have repeatedly failed to do so. Why? I mean, if I’m making allegations, I’m def making sure to provide readers with evidence to back my claims up.

        I am shocked you do not bolster your repeated claims with overwhelming evidence. Why haven’t you provided details? It could make you a rich man!

    • pcwalt

      Are you sure you are up to date on that offer? Aren’t you aware that there have been several convictions for voter fraud related to the 2020 elections? (…let alone those who were *charged* with fraud….)

      • Ben

        Did the Lt Governor pay out?
        I think the big problem is that most of the cases of fraud were perpetrated by republicans.
