Dem Congressman Slams GOP As Party Of ‘Corporate Shills,’ ‘Religious Fanatics’ & ‘Freedom Fiends’
The Blaze ^ | October 5, 2013 | Oliver Darcy

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Florida) lambasted the Republican Party on Friday night during an appearance on “Real Time With Bill Maher,” accusing the GOP of being divided into three fringe sectors.

“There are really 3 Republican parties: there are the corporate shills, there are the religious fanatics and then there are the freedom fiends, the ones who want to make sure you have the right to sleep under a bridge,” Grayson told HBO’s Bill Maher.

Maher, an outspoken liberal comedian, appeared to agree and summed up Grayson’s analysis in his own words.

“So Jesus freaks, gun nuts, generic obese suburbanites, and let me add the super rich?”

I’m proud to be a “freedom fiend”. It’s an American thing. Crazyass Grayson wouldn’t understand.

I love “freedom fiends”. Unfortunately for the subhuman named grayson, he is just a basic, run-of-the-mill insane LIB ashat moonbat.

He continued.

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Florida): “At the moment the corporate shills are in the minority and they can’t force their will on the others anymore because when you get down to it, they have the money but the other two have the votes.”

They sound just like the fat welfare liberal who makes fun of skinnier person for having love handles.

These people are completely delusional and such delusion festers the worse off. The fat with low self esteem will always look to make fun of someone for their weight. Just check how the gays check people out for their habits.

This country is crazier. You know , bring it on, i cannot wait for obamboozle care to screw these people and have them enlisted like in Vietnam.

The response to such attacks should always be the same:

“These are the things you say when you don’t want to discuss policy because you have no tenable positions.

Only corporations create wealth and jobs.
Government is the opposite.

I’m beginning to think that Grayson and Debbie Wasserman Schulze secretly came out of the same womb. I’m still a little in doubt because Grayson is the better looking of the two.

I was wondering when someone would pull his chain again. He has been remarkably quiet since coming back.

Oh man, the Hebrew race was not chosen because they were inherently such wonders of philosophy. It was chosen because God wanted to bless them as an illustration of blessing what was going to be proven through history to be an asinine people. OK, color me a little non PC here. But I am half Jew and I am certain I got my own asinine nature from that! Half kidding.

THIS DOES NOT EXCUSE HATRED TOWARDS JEWS... God is still in charge here. If even He won’t hate them, then why should we.

The band Tesla has a song “Freedom Slave” that could be rewritten to “Freedom Fiend”.

Bill Maher is paid millions. I assume the money comes from HBO subscribers. I also assume most of them are liberals.

I’m grateful I don’t hang out with liberals. I’d be in jail.

We really need to demonize the “Dependency Party”. It is the antidote to the ongoing demonization of the Tea Party. It has never been more clear that the base of the democrats is dependency.
