Hmm, We're not far apart. Historically there's no doubt that the dems were the anti-civil rights party. Then when the christian coalition found the GOP, the south flipped. I don't believe for a second that one election made the south suddenly stop being racist. I think it is clear that the GOP plays on fears of the other, though now it's more about hispanics than blacks. I also think that over time, the us vs them vote is becoming less and less of an issue and more and more the crazies are the religious folk. Believe it or not, that's progress, of sorts.Second, even if the GOP <DID> suddenly decide to shut its trap in hopes of scooping up some disaffected Democrat racists, it certainly doesn't quantify the wholesale lie told by the Left about the GOP being the party of racism, "Bull" Connor, and all the rest. The Democrat Party was the traditional party of racism, IS the current party of racism, and will likely always BE the party of racism as long as it exists. The GOP, for all their iniquity, are the party that doesn't care what color your skin is as long as you have cash and can have your labor exploited.
Anyway, the point is those old democrats aren't the same people as today's democrats. Heck, most of them are old or dead, but demographically, those people are voting republican now. I don't think it's fair to blame someone for their father's sins, but I think there is a little residual racial animosity out there. I've heard differing accounts of how much.
That said, there's truth in your statement that only one party supports treating the races differently (assuming they are citizens anyway). That's the Dems. Affirmative action flies in the face of the colorblind society that MLK wanted. That's the one real law I can think of that actually treats people of different race differently. Is that enough to say the Dems are the party of racists? i don't think so. I know you think a lot of other positions are racist too, but i can't give you those.
It's not fair to say that welfare is racist because black people get trapped. I'm not sure I can agree with that. Those people would not be better off without it. It's also annoying because we don't distribute welfare based on race, but on income. It's the same specious thinking that you use to "prove" that abortions are ethnically cleansing blacks. I just don't buy it. in fact, until you actually make the claims, I won't even bother listing the silly things I've heard makes dems racist over the years. You get that one. Treating people differently based on race. There aren't others.
Really? That's surprising. They hinted at something in your video (her *** friends), but I felt like I didn't get the whole story.I like Ann. She's hilariously pro-queer, and it ties the fascist Left into knots because they're really quite anti-queer.
Would i like him because he's a leftist, an ardent atheist or because of my fondness for tabbouleh? (probably spelling that wrong)Even more amusingly, she crossed swords with a comedian named Joe DeRosa on RedEye a couple of nights back - DeRosa is a mild leftist, of Lebanese heritage, and an ardent Atheist - you'd like him.
Well, he may not be lying about his faith, he might just be an idiot. He's not famous for a nobel prize you know.Well, DeRosa said that the religious assertions by Ray Lewis are a sham,
i don't get what she's saying either. is it a valid defense or not? If they're possessed is the appropriate justice death to the person possessed? I feel like he was right.and Coulter contended that they're sincere. It devolved into DeRosa claiming that honoring the moral positivism of Christianity in a formal setting like a court is no different from claiming "the Devil made me do it". Coulter asked why someone can't claim that "the Devil made me do it", and DeRosa was disdainful - he asked if she thought that constituted a valid defense. She said something to the effect of "Sure: Satanic motivation. Guilty as charged. Execution. NEXT!"
First off, thanks for that, the part you're describing is at like 34, not 14. But I listened and i have to say, that show was awful. the announcer was REALLY annoying and whenever someone made something close to a real point they quickly ran away from it and made a joke. I'm not sure how this show is entertaining in any way, shape or form. You should stick to that show about OJ's lawyer's kids you're always rambling on about.Found it. Starts about 14:25 - I think they "catch" her about her allies in the queer Republican ranks as well.
I could see how the lack of being able to make a cogent argument might appeal to you. Birds of a feather and whatnot.DeRosa was flabbergasted, and stuttered things about reality and thinking this was a news show. That's why I like her.
Allowed to be? You can have any stance you want. Free country.We differ again. I'm not anti-affirmative action, nor am I allowed to be, but I definitely realize that things have gone so far as to be counter-productive. When I hear talk about how admitting women to the military will neither degrade the force nor will be supported by quotas and the whole shebang, I want to beat someone's head in.
And as far as letting women in the military, they're already there. i think they should have to meet the same physical standards as men if they're going to go into combat, but I don't have a problem with them going into combat. I oppose a quota.
That reminded me of the fireman exam. Did that "scandal" make it to the national media? If not here goes. The chicago firefighters have to pass a test to be hired--it's a cushy job if you don't die from it, so it's very sought after. A ton of people take the test (written), but not a lot pass. Recently they had a problem, no blacks passed the test. The blacks got mad and sued, and they had to throw out the test. So now we hire dumb firefighters because the smart blacks didn't apply that year (or found something better). Anyway, now the physical test is being challenged by women who are suing and saying it's not fair that they have to carry stuff to be a firefighter. The Chicago fire department is exactly what happens when we take this stuff too far.
Anyway, the moral of the story is after you complain loudly about these things on facebook, it's probably not a good idea to send the people you're arguing with (who live in chicago) candles for their anniversary.
That link is forever thinking.Here's a far better discussion of it than I could ever provide. Colonel West is DA MAN! Well, not really, because the Socialist Democrats are the Establishment, but he <should be> DA MAN!
There were Republicans on my ballot this past November.You kidder. You've NEVER voted for the GOP.
