    You're such a poor victim! Oh, how could the evil PC be so terribly cruel to you? How do you endure??


    It's like your deck has 52 victim cards.
    I think you are choosing to ignore that with disagrees with your ideology.


    So I think it's time to pull your head out of the sand on this one. Really.

    I'm not blaming things on an "object" - I'm blaming the administration for using the "object" to silence dissent this administration does not want to hear. And both sides of the aisle seem to be employing "political opposition" to what is currently occurring - don't you find that unusual? And when the Supreme Court rules unanimously on things, that is also telling, IMO. I cited examples of what I meant in my post - why do you refer to them as "generalizations?" I try to stay factual - please correct me where I am in error - or did you want dates when they were spoken or written?

    Very well said, Polgara. Probably better than what I have said. The racism card is being deployed to silence legitimate political criticism and opposition, and dissenting speech.

    No one has been silenced. Put the victim card away and step away from the self-pity.

    Hm. Let us see. One member gasping "you lie", v multiple members and a presidential candidate tacitly endorsing the idea that george bush either participated in, directed, or knew about 9/11 before hand.......

    Ah, no. That is not really dangerous at all.

    Unlike, for example, the precedent that the President does not need to actually follow the written law, but is free to "borrow legislative power" and change it as he deems most convenient. For Cripes Sake, even Ed Schultz is saying that the President is abusing his position too much, setting too dangerous a precedent with his latest threats to go around Congress on immigration.

    What is dangerous is a precedent of a fully partisan Justice Department, of using the IRS to "reward your friends and punish your enemies". That is what is dangerous. And I look forward to liberals discovering that fact. Which I predict they will do in January of 2017.

    To declare someone a racist is indeed an attempt to silence them - it is saying that they do not belong in the public debate, to shame them and hound them and drive them from discourse.

    That they have failed is not an alibi.

    So who's really playing the race / victim card here?

    Those that claim legitimate criticism as being racist?
    OR
    Those that claim being accused of voicing legitimate criticism as being racist?
