    Conservatives need to stop making this mistake. The constituents of the racist Democratic Party with the KKK and slavery have now become the constituents of the Republican Party over several voter shifts starting with FDR and ending with those in the Civil Rights Movements.

    I disagree completely. I don't know anyone whose been "driven apart" by "race mongering". You either believe what they say or you don't. It doesn't really change people's positions.

    No, it is true. If you have a belief, you're by definition apart from people of opposite beliefs.

    How could any member be? You (and Hat) post them most days. We are all well aware of what you consider racist signs and shirts. If someone wore a shirt, or made a sig, "Yup, I'm a racist... because haymarket says so"... you would claim it was undeniable proof that the person is, in fact, a racist and is using you and us gullible idiots to get away with saying it in public. The rest of us would laugh. There's a thread that proves this, however ridiculous that might appear.

    Is that honestly how your brain works. A given statement is true until proven otherwise? Frightening.

    So you really do subscribe to the belief that racemongers don't drive people apart? Should I suppose you think the same of hatemongers?

    You're saying that everybody is already apart. Everybody means every single person. Ergo, you're saying that every single person has a belief apart from anyone else? When you say everybody, it means that there can't be any two people that have the same beliefs. You said everybody is apart, thus you say that every single person within "everybody" is "apart".

    Are my eyes seeing things?
    No, you fail to understand the meaning of the word racism. You also fail to understand the meaning of the words irony and sarcasm. But that shouldn't surprise me I suppose...

    Of the first 4 pages of the results, there is one racist sign and the inbred piece of trash can't even spell the word 'nigger' correctly. You see, the overwhelming majority (and I'm talking at least 95%) of Tea Partiers aren't racists. We don't like Obama because of his skin color (he is half-white after all), we don't like him because of his ideology, his stances on nearly every issue and his policies. We'd dislike Hillary Clinton every bit as much as Obama if not more.

    How about taking a look at these and get back to me on how racist the Tea Party is as a whole:

    I don't know anyone who's ever been "driven apart" by "race mongers" in this country. Like I said, you either believe what you say or they don't. Do you honestly believe that what Carson said really drove people further apart?

    You're saying that everybody is already apart. Everybody means every single person. Ergo, you're saying that every single person has a belief apart from anyone else? When you say everybody, it means that there can't be any two people that have the same beliefs. You said everybody is apart, thus you say that every single person within "everybody" is "apart".
    Every single person is, in fact, apart from other people if said person has beliefs. You're really interpreting my comment in a strange and, I think, purposely obtuse, manner. I don't recall saying that no two people can have the same beliefs. If you wanted me to clarify you should have asked.

    Wake is correct, obviously, and his reference to hatemongering makes it clear. playdrive is writing nonsense. What's next? We dispute that it is the people who are being divisive and we should not blame mongering? Enough.

    I seriously doubt there is any organization in America that has a 95% rate of non-racists, Hugh. (For the record, I'm using using the second definition of racist found here: Racism - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary instead of the strictest definition, which would be th efirst one found there. Both are real and valid definitions of the word, though).

    You don't think that racemongering and, I presume, hatemongering, doesn't drive people apart? How about the young kid who has a friend of the other color? Once the kid becomes older and repeatedly hears such race/hatemongering, you don't think that could sway the two friends to become "apart"? Do you also not think race/hatemongering can further tear communities and people apart?

    Every single person is, in fact, apart from other people if said person has beliefs. You're really interpreting my comment in a strange and, I think, purposely obtuse, manner. I don't recall saying that no two people can have the same beliefs. If you wanted me to clarify you should have asked.
    You saying that everybody is apart directly clashes with your statement that there are groups of people who have like beliefs.
