    No contribution to racist divisions here, I suppose.

    Now Grant... I've attempted to educate you on this issue several times, giving you CLEAR information and data demonstrating that it has been Republicans, at least over the past 50+ years that are the party of racists. Must I humiliate you AGAIN by posting the information that demonstrates that you don't know what you are talking about?

    Scalise was invited to the conference by Kenny Knight, a long time adviser to David Duke. Scalise is either racist or utterly incompetent.

    Re: Scalise Allegedly Spoke with White Supremacy Group

    I accept that he was unaware who they were (even though he might have investigated whom he was speaking for a bit better) and that he is sorry that he did it. If no other evidence surfaces supporting an underlying white-supremacist/racist mindset in him, I would say forgive the man/live and let live. Nobody is perfect, especially not a politician and people should not go overboard with heaping on blame/dislike on this guy based on this speech he gave.

    Dislike/criticize him for the things he thinks and does in his political office (if that is the case, I do not know him) and not because of this one speech.

    Why? Isn't it good to jaw things though? I always though talk was better than keeping mum.

    Well, the man who many have been looking towards as the future of the Republican Party and quite possibly a future President (See house of cards TV Show) seems to have more than a few skeletons in his closet. Not sure about the "rumor" however... It's a very interesting ripple.
    I really don't see any issue in holding a speech before friends or foes. Is it not better they vote for a Conservative than a radical? If the text were known and racist, the report would be interesting. As it appears here, it seems a stupid slur.

    Yeppers, politico is a very respectable credible source


    Scalise, 49, who ascended to the House GOPís third-ranking post this year, confirmed through an adviser that he once appeared at a convention of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization, or EURO. But the adviser said the congressman didnít know at the time about the groupís affiliation with racists and neo-Nazi activists.

Maybe as minorities become the majority within the next 10-15 years, we will begin to see some type of balance between these racial groups which seem to be dominated by not "white people" but in actuality, "black people."

    I'm also not so certain as to the timing of this story. Why talk about it now? 12 years later??

    Mornin' MGOP. What I got it was pushed by the Conservative Hard Right.....naturally the left is looking to play off of it. As any shake up in Republican leadership is a problem for all Republicans. Just as it is for the Demos when they shake their tree.

    But you are correct.....12 years ago. Why not brought out for the election. Because it wasn't the left.

    The reason the Conservatives are making a hubbub about it is due to Scalise not being Conservative enough. The conservatives wanted Tom Graves Georgia Republican as the Whip.

    Any of the left really don't want to make a big deal about it with Sharpton visiting this White House 61 times. Or BO peep meeting with Ayers.

    This is a one and done if no other dirt comes forth. Leadership released a statement yesterday and circled the Wagons around Scalise. Who assured Boehner there is no other dirt. If there is any other Dirt. He is done as Whip!

    Kenny Knight has publicly stated that Scalise spoke to a small community group BEFORE the conference, not during it. According to Knight, Scalise spoke for about 15 minutes on tax issues. The American Red Cross also spoke before the group, as well as the Sheriff's Dept. on forming community watch groups.

    Given that the Republican party has shifted to the right and some far to the right over the last 20 years or so, it is probably to be expected that skeletons like this will come rattling out of the closet from time to time. What is the old saying..... When you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.

    This is really not at all shocking or even surprising.
