    actually lots of lefties approve of such tactics just as many approve of Democrats pushing gun control to bash conservatives.

    do conservatives sometimes engage in the same behavior? sure. I don't believe lots of abortion banners really care about unborn babies as much as they claim nor do I believe the "sanctity of marriage" people are free of anti gay bigotry

    but trust me, lots of lefties like what Lerner does

    Frankly, it's hard to differentiate them based on their extreme behaviors, don't you think?
    TEAbangers do it every day in so many forums I've lost count.
    The best one is Mark Levin because he calls out both Democrats and Crony Capitalists, but not the same way of course.
    The "our feelings are hurt" CARD is rich coming from the GOP .

    Why does anyone care about substance-less accusations? I'll tell you: they are desperate to be victims and receive pity.

    It's a cold hard world out there, and those that cannot handle it play the victim card.
    I'm not hearing the conservative end of the political spectrum playing the victim / race card. Hear it aplenty from the left end of the spectrum, playing to their usual plucking heart strings / emotions rather than logic and reasoning and something more mature.

    And you've demonstrated as much by using the derogatory term "TEAbangers" / 'TeaBaggers', now haven't you?

    Point being that it takes a little more than being conservative for being accused of being a racist by the left.
    This is blatantly BS.
    You can most certainly be conservative and not be racists. I'm not saying that there aren't conservatives who aren't racist, I'm saying that you being conservative doesn't make you one. Further, criticizing Obama's polices on a policy basis isn't racist in the least either.

    After what I've heard Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Moo-chelle, Mrs. Clinton, Sen. Warren called the last SIX years just for starters,
    I see no need to try to reason with the unreasonable.
    As for TEAbanger, that's a new one of mine dedicated to Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh and what their kind say about Americans .

    Now look who's whining with the "racist" card.
    I don't see the GOP establishment walking back the racist garbage as Boehner used to.
    To him, it is okay to fundraise off that.
    But not okay to fundraise off of GOPs suing and impeaching .

    Race card and victim card are not the same thing. Regarding the victim card, you should hear all the conservatives that cry like babies with colic over that terrible object -PC- robbing them of their liberty, oppressing them and basically destroying all of society.

    I tell ya, those crybabies will go on and on about how others exercising free speech ruins their life. They're victims of an object! haha

    Totally agree with all of that, and I have had that particular card played on me several times, once for opposing legalizing marijuana. Honestly, it used to bug me more, now it's used so often it's been rendered nearly meaningless.

    My take is that it has been rendered meaningless by over use, which directly points to the problem, distortion, and overuse, and frankly, incorrect and inappropriate use by some.
