    There's been far more times where I've seen liberals pathetically and wrongly pull the race card with the Obama/Monkey thing then I've seen honest to goodness racism from the right with it.



    Of course some of it is. And some of the support for obama is racist in nature as well. Support simply because "he's a black man and not whitey". However, in all reality, its relatively small on both sides. Its one thing to ignore that racism exists, its another thing to harp on it so much to make it seem...intentionally or not...that its a major thing and then when called on it whine and go "no no, I don't mean its big, I just think its a PART of it....."

    No **** its a part of it, there's not been an election in the past 30 years that racist views played into the votes for one candidate or another. That doesn't mean its something that should be focused or talked about nearly as much as it is.
    ok...let's leave aside the monkey thing......there have still been other instances, very clearly racist, and people have lost their jobs because of it. now, the op was originated by a republican playing the race card........which i found pretty funny, as liberals have been blasted for the same behavior. that was the extent of my original response.

    the racism FOR obama is not something i have had personal contact with, although i'm sure it exists. personally, i thought electing obama would help ease some of the racism that exists in our country. instead, it's brought it to the forefront. it's emboldened elected officials to the point where they send racist e-mails......police, mayors, etc. i think that's part of the reason liberals are ultra sensitive, rightly or wrongly.

    for my part, i suppose i am a little defensive. on my husband's side of the family, there are closet, and not so closet racists. that has never been as apparent as it now. these are business owning, educated people. not on my side. i really was raised to be colorblind, and i really AM offended by racist comments.

    The way I witness it, correlation always equals causation when it favors the person partisans like, and never does when it condemns them. And of course the inverse is true for those partisans dislike.

    Until now, all the cries of racism have come from the left. They've even been caught manufacturing it themselves. Racism is not as prevalent as you are making it out to be.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Libbos prove that education and intelligence aren't always the same thing.

    i could say anything , as oscar and others do, so what's the point? my sources, (and there are many more) are my proof. personally, i have not claimed to be better educated than anyone here, that i recall. are you as proficient at avoidance as oscar?
    Red states usually trend more racially diverse, as well. What are you getting at, exactly?

    I made a point before that Stewart does impressions that all walks of life could find offensive. Stewart working for a comedy channel (called Comedy Central dur) definitely makes sure Fox News (which is supposed to be a news channel dur) look like a bunch of assholes by nailing it into their ****ing head that he is just a witty clown. So here it is your moment of zen:

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Comments like these are why the Republican Party sucks so hard at getting minority votes.
