“Pro-life” Arkansas Congress candidate thinks death penalty for “rebellious” children is appropriate

As they say, you cannot make this shit up.

Charlie Fuqua, who has previously served in the Arkansas House of Representatives and wants all Muslims unconditionally deported and also advocates the sterilization of people who have been shown, by some standard, to be unsupportive parents, is now on record of advocating the death penalty for disobedient children.

One would find this a curious stance coming from someone who lists among his top ten agenda issues as “protect the sanctity of life,” but all bets are off with these mindless assholes. In some sub-worlds it makes perfect sense to be a rabid anti-abortionist while seriously advancing the idea that society might be better off if kids who merely sass their parents too much be hanged, shot or given lethal injections.

Every time I intend to mitigate my opinions about certain U.S. states, something like this rolls around and seems to legitimize every harsh prejudice I am apt to cling to.

    This kind of mentality is just so absurd you have to wonder if it is an elaborate joke. It isn’t, but it gives some of our brilliant comedians great raw material to work with. George Carlin has (or had) a pretty funny bit that this relates to what you’re talking about on the irony of pro-life conservatives who are all for the rights of the unborn, but as soon as you’re born “they don’t want to you hear from you – no neonatal care, no daycare, no Head Start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re pre-born you’re fine, if you’re pre-school you’re…(well it’s easy enough to find on You Tube). Anyway, always enjoy your posts!

      Rachel, I am a huge Carlin fan (hate it when people like he and Hitchens die) and recall all those same monologues.

      It does seem self-parodic, but these idiots mean business.

    To paraphrase Steven Weinberg: With or without religion, good people will do good things and bad people will do bad things, but to get good people to do bad things takes religion.
