Rick Saccone, losing ground to Conor Lamb at a breakneck pace, says liberals have “hatred for our country” and “hatred for God”

In Pennsylvania, the state where people marry their assault rifles, there’s going to be a big election tomorrow, as Marine-turned-federal prosecutor Conor Lamb faces off against Trump acolyte Rick Saccone in a special election for the House seat vacated by Tim Murphy, the pro-life, “family values” Republican, who was forced from office when it became known that he’d pressured a woman he was having an affair with to have an abortion.

While voters in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, located in Southwestern Pennsylvania, tend to favor Republican candidates by approximately 20 points, Lamb has pulled into a dead heat with Saccone in recent days, having many thinking that Democrats might be able to pull off yet another upset. And, because of this, Saccone is pulling out all the stops. Over the weekend, he had Trump come in and stoke the fires of white anger on his behalf, and, today, in a last minute appeal to his base, Saccone said that liberals have “hatred for our country” and “hatred for God”… Here’s the video.

Like I said, though, it doesn’t seem to be working. According to the most recent polling, Lamb has come within striking distance, in spite of the fact that, just last year, Trump carried the 18th by 19 points over Clinton. [In 2014 and 2016, Murphy ran unopposed for the seat, as no Democrats felt as though they even had a shot in the deep red district.] But it looks like this might actually happen, if Democrats actually show up and vote. And that’s why I’m posting right now… in hopes that maybe just one person in the audience has a friend or relative in Southwest Pennsylvania who might benefit from a last minute reminder. As today’s shutting down of the House probe into Russia’s election interference proves, it’s vitally important that we retake the House in November, and put an end to the reign of Republican obstructionists and enablers who have proven themselves again and again to be unwilling to stand up and defend our democratic institutions… But the good news is, it can be done, and it can all start with Cnnor Lamb. And it’s actually within reach… Here’s the most recent polling.

    If we win this one, will the Republicans finally give up on Trump and stop protecting him?

    “Any chance that today’s surprise announcement about Tillerson’s firing is because Trump and company are expecting @Saccone4PA18 to lose today, setting the stage for impeachment?”

    I think the Tillerson firing had to do with his statement yesterday pointing to Russia as responsible for the nerve gas attack in London. I think Russia has the dirt on Trump to ensure his impeachment no matter who holds the House. Even if Saccone loses, the House doesn’t have the Dem votes to bring articles of impeachment. Lastly, there is speculation that the closing of the House investigation is intended to divert the news cycle from the Stormy Daniels controversy, which appears stupid in my mind, but will likely matter to his base. Without Tillerson in office managing Trumps impulsiveness on FP, I fear much worse diversions. There were lots of good reasons for firing Tillerson, like the dismantling of the State Dept, but I’m sure they weren’t the reasons for Trump.

    Conor Lamb, a Catholic Marine, hates God and country. Got it.

    I admit, I do have intense hatred for the diety as presented in the texts of all the Abrahamic religions.

    Are you disturbed by their admonition to care for the poor and demonization of the wealthy?

    What evidence do you have of a compassionate god, SAD? Like most appeals for absolute authority, the Abrahamic religions rely on notions of purity, submission repentance on the part of believers and the threat of vengeance for anything less than total fealty plus offers of forgiveness by the deity. And love, but love offered like that of a serial abuser.
