Sometimes, even a die-hard Democrat and respecter of smart people everywhere like me can’t believe what I hear Republicans say. But, of course, with YouTube, I get to See and Hear all kinds of things. I can replay them in case I missed something. I can marvel that, yup, they did, in fact say something as stupid as that. Or this. Yup. There’s proof.
Oregon State Representative Bill Post eulogized the passing of Leonard Nimoy on the floor of the legislature.
As Addicting Info stated:
Of course, neither Spock nor Nimoy were Republicans. Star Trek is pro-science and about a big government in search of a utopian society. Its themes were equality (although the original Star Trek was sexist) and peace. There was no money on the Starship Enterprise. There were no rich or poor. All basic needs were provided for, including health care.
One of Spock’s most famous quotes was, “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”
