Moderate republicans.....now known by the far right as extreme liberals.
"Moderate Republicans" still exist and are even quite common. They're just known by their other name, "Democrats". This is the reason for the common misconception.
As someone who used to identify as a 'moderate' Republican, this hits home. The GOP has basically run out anyone who doesn't play the hard right party song.
They're going extinct because being a republican these days means willfully (and gleefully) denying reality. Moderates are shitty at that what with their second-guessing and fact checking.
I've had it with onion. It used to be funny now it's just a bunch of republican bashing. I can't recall the last time I laughed at one of your articles. I'm unliking and will check back in a few years.
Too late. Apparently a virulent mutation of Tea-cells wiped out the moderate Republicans years ago.
Funny the Democrats do the same to moderate Left. Two far sides shouting agenda while the rest of us in the middle just wanna live our lives in peace and not be jerks.
Meanwhile, the invasive "Tea Party" and "Freedom Caucus" sub-species of Republicans are firmly planted to their Senate and House seats, and continue to push the native moderates further and further out. Pollution in the environment, specifically unlimited amounts of what they call "freedom paper", but actually known as "money" and "bribes" allows the invasive species to flourish.
Yes, the RINO has been on the endangered species list for quite some time now. The primary voters make a point of picking them off whenever they can, in the belief that their horns can grant eternal life once Obamacare is wiped out.
We're going to need a lot of boat shoes
But we all know that inbreeding leads to a vote for Trump, so this program is self defeating!
Shame moderate democrats went extinct tho. The viscious invasive species of hippies, commies and marxists took over their breeding grounds in big cities. Such a shame...
I am a moderate republican an would have supported Mitch Daniels over any of the 17 republican candidates. However I feel the standard has moved so far left that liberals consider me far right, out of touch and stupid. That is how Donald Trump was elected and tolerated by folks like me that for ye
The "moderate republicans" are now known as Democrats.
If you're not ashamed by the actions of the DNC, you're a moderate republican.
They are both establishment af. The only difference anymore between the DNC and RNC is the DNC is pro choice and pro gay rights.
Moderate republicans do still exist. They are the former Democratic voters that switched their votes in states like Michigan and Pennsylvania, who helped elect trump. The former moderate republicans evolved into conservatives. ;)
Libertarians, being mutants between crossbreeding a republican and democrat, still proving unable to reproduce or increase their numbers beyond a mere 3% of the voting populace... Sources confirmed the public is still intent on holding them responsible for all the problems in the country regardless.
It seems that people on the left should spend less time worrying about the right and more time fixing there own side. Democrats got destroyed in this last election to the point where the term "across the aisle" doesn't apply because of the amount of Republicans that have to side over there. Democrats should be doing this "program" to the moderate left in the rust belt where they have destroyed their industries.
"Hey, that's just a Democrat!"
"Shh, we're hoping they won't notice the difference."
There dead. The inmates have overthrown the asylum, and Stockholm syndrome forced the true moderates and "Christian" Conservatives to abandon all they knew and stood for their whole lives. The Grand OLE Party is no longer old. There's a new sheriff in town, and he's committing adultery, grabbing pussies, mocking disabilities and making fun of POW'S and Veterans!! Not the party I voted for Bush 41 was from!!
The Republican nominee this year carried a rainbow flag onstage, and the budget projections look just like something the Democrats would propose. There aren't really any "conservatives". All Republicans might talk a different game at this point but they are the same as they always were. What doesn't exist are moderate Democrats. As evidenced by the top ranked comment in the comment section being made by a fucking commie, which is what the Democrats have become.
If they have a hard time getting them to mate, I humbly suggest a combination of chardonnay, Huey Lewis and the News MP3s, and pictures of the gipper himself Ronald Reagan be available in their enclosure. I hope they set up a live feed webcam so we can track their progress!
The actual irony, of course, is that this is more true of Democrats. Every day, they run screaming like lunatics to the fringe Left, abandoning moderate Democrats all the while. It's why Hillary lost the election. Pay better attention or the Dems will never win another presidency.
I understand the need for the breeding program, but I still hate to see such noble creatures held in captivity, however benign. It is interesting, though, to see that some of the males will treat the females much the way the lions do, mating with every eligible female in his (pride? pack?). I wonder if others will be more selective, perhaps mating exclusively with one female. Or perhaps the female harbors some trait of her own, like ripping off the heads of the males during mating, like praying mantis do. Only time will tell as we further investigate these magnificent and rare beings - and with any luck, one day they, too, can be removed from the endangered species list.
those don't exist anymore. we are a nation of gender fluid safe space cry babies and racist rednecks who are desperately clinging to their guns for the last 9 days of obamas presidency "just in case" he comes to take their guns away at the last second.
Funny how this satirical piece got under the far right folks skin. It's based on, from what I have seen growing up in a heavily R family, truth. I'll just stay over here and take the blame while the Rs and Ds keep hashing out new ways to screw our country over.
After this election both the endangered species of Moderatus Republicanis and Moderatus Democratia have gone extinct. So sad to see these beautiful creatures go
Republicans control the White House, Congress, Senate, soon to be the Supreme Court and a majority of the state govenors...Poor snowflake libs are still in shock...Let it go.
moderate republicans might actually be in favor of a woman's right to choose, thereby ironically limiting their own numbers. this forced breeding program is just the thing needed to turn them all into far-right extremists before their release. oh wait...
Perhaps, the Democrats should try to isolate and capture some of the blue collar workers in Michigan and Wisconsin that they ignored and dismissed as deplorables.
The right feels exactly the same about the left, you know. They see 'classical liberals' as a rare breed compared to modern 'progressives.' The loudest voices are the ones that call the ideological shots, as usual.
