Gibbons Supports Death Penalty for Liberals

Sunday, March 06, 2005

U.S. Representative from Nevada, Jim Gibbons took a strong stand on liberalism today. Gibbons accused liberal, movie makers and song makers to “trying to divide this country”. The gubernatorial hopeful believes anyone who does not support the war in Iraq is a “tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippie” and that the should be sent to Iraq to be used as human shields.

Hippies should be sent to Iraq to be used as human shields.

Gibbons was a fighter pilot in Vietnam and still blames Hollywood for losing the war. "Hollywood established a climate that made our returning troops feel ostracized", Gibbons said. This comes as a great relief to the Chinese, who usually are forced to take responsibility.

Not everyone is happy with Gibbon’s remarks, however.

Not everyone is happy with Gibbon’s remarks, however. State Senator Diana Titus of Las Vegas, also a gubernatorial hopeful, said Gibbons' comments illustrate "how out of touch he is with most Nevadans." "I guess he thinks that's cute to play to his base," she said. "Why does he find it necessary to use those kind of inflammatory terms about the other side?"

Gibbons' comments came a week after he apologized for calling those who oppose corporate donations for President Bush's inaugural parties "communists." Gibbons claims his motivation for continually bellyaching, complaining, moaning, and criticizing liberals is that he can’t stand how much they whine.
