    Ku Klux Klan Member Elected as Republican Precinct Delegate in Midland - News : MediaMouse Progressive Left News Blog - Grand Rapids, Michigan

    OH and the classic.. David Duke. What party was he in when he got elected? OH yea I guess because he was a former grand wizard of the KKK means that he has totally dismissed the views of the KKK.. sure.

    Republican's quoting the KKK founder in Congress..

    And what of J.T. Ready? Is he not "leadership", at least local? or does it only count if it is in national leadership? Oh I know, he is a neo nazi not the KKK.. like there is a difference...

    Flake says Republican's neo-Nazi tie hurts GOP

    We don't go around claiming we want to castrate minorities either.
    No they just advocate assassination and murder. Let me see of the top of my head... Pat Robertson, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter.. oh yea they not Republican's I bet in your eyes.

    And of course there is the GOP fog horn... Rush Limbaugh, saying that Democrats are like murders, rapists and wife beheaders.

    Or dear Sarah "I have got no clue" Palin telling people that Obama is a terrorist sympathiser and leading rallies where people shout "KILL HIM" and worse. Naw nothing wrong with that.

    Or there is John Gibson that compares a black man to a chimp... Oh yea that's Fox News, not affiliated to the Republican movement in any way.

    YouTube - Bright Blue Scrotum

    2.40ish in.

    But yea, the right does not race bait, call for the death of the opposition, nor compare the political opposition to terrorists and what not. And the moon is made of green cheese.

    Providing the education you were denied from the sewer pipe that passes for the EU Pravda media:

    National Black Republican Association - DYK-Unveiled Democrats Racist Past

    But defying logic has long been a hallmark of the lunatic left.
    Hey I will admit that the "left" has some nut jobs, but will you admit that the right has nut jobs too?

    Do you have problems with simple mathematics. The amount would be 26% or 34% depending on what you make of "white hispanics".

    The problem of race is yours. You are just trying to bring up race because you are obsessed by it as many of the PC crowd are.

    Re: Attorney General Trashes Americans as "Cowards"

    I don't agree with what the OP is talking about... the U.S. is reatively vanguard when it comes to dealing with ethnic tensions in its nation. I have seen countries way worse, whose minorities are treated like garbage.

    That said... race still matters in the United States, and anyone who thinks otherwise doesn't understand history. Race is one of those things that has to be an issue before it's a non issue, and right now it is still an issue. It always seems to be white people who claim that racism is no longer an issue, while every other group still has coalitions looking out for minorities.

    Try going to another country where you are a minority ethnicity, and then you will see that it is never going to be a non-issue.

    Re: Holder: US is nation of cowards on racial matters

    Pete EU:

    History News Network
    Most people are either a Democrat by design, or a Democrat by deception. That is either they were well aware the racist history of the Democrat Party and still chose to be Democrat, or they were deceived into thinking that the Democratic Party is a party that sincerely cared about Black people.

    History reveals that every piece of racist legislation that was ever passed and every racist terrorist attack that was ever inflicted on African Americans, was initiated by the members of the Democratic Party. From the formation of the Democratic Party in 1792 to the Civil Rights movement of 1960's, Congressional records show the Democrat Party passed no specific laws to help Blacks, every law that they introduced into Congress was designed to hurt blacks in 1894 Repeal Act. The chronicles of history shows that during the past 160 years the Democratic Party legislated Jim Crows laws, Black Codes and a multitude of other laws at the state and federal level to deny African Americans their rights as citizens.

    History reveals that the Republican Party was formed in 1854 to abolish slavery and challenge other racist legislative acts initiated by the Democratic Party.
    Here is just a sample of the Democrat Party's racist foundation.
    Enjoy the experience of education.

    "I am a former Kleagle [recruiter] of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County. . . . The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state in the union."

    --Robert C. Byrd, 1946
    Democratic Senator from West Virginia, 1959-present
    Senate Majority Leader, 1977-80 and 1987-88
    Senate President Pro Tempore, 1989-95, 2001-03, 2007-present
    His portrait stands in the U.S. Capitol.

    President Truman's civil rights program "is a farce and a sham--an effort to set up a police state in the guise of liberty. I am opposed to that program. I have voted against the so-called poll tax repeal bill. . .. I have voted against the so-called anti-lynching bill."

    --Rep. Lyndon B. Johnson (D., Texas), 1948
    U.S. Senator, 1949-61
    Senate Majority Leader, 1955-61
    President, 1963-69

    "There is no warrant for the curious notion that Christianity favors the involuntary commingling of the races in social institutions. Although He knew both Jews and Samaritans and the relations existing between them, Christ did not advocate that courts or legislative bodies should compel them to mix socially against their will."

    --Sen. Sam Ervin (D., N.C.), 1955
    Chairman, Committee on Government Operations, 1971-75

    "The decline and fall of the Roman empire came after years of intermarriage with other races. Spain was toppled as a world power as a result of the amalgamation of the races. . . . Certainly history shows that nations composed of a mongrel race lose their strength and become weak, lazy and indifferent."

    --Herman E. Talmadge, 1955
    Democratic Senator from Georgia, 1957-81
    Chairman, Committee on Agriculture, 1971-81

    "These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don't move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there'll be no way of stopping them, we'll lose the filibuster and there'll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It'll be Reconstruction all over again."

    --Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson (D., Texas), 1957

    "I have never seen very many white people who felt they were being imposed upon or being subjected to any second-class citizenship if they were directed to a waiting room or to any other public facility to wait or to eat with other white people. Only the Negroes, of all the races which are in this land, publicly proclaim they are being mistreated, imposed upon, and declared second-class citizens because they must go to public facilities with members of their own race."

    --Sen. Richard B. Russell Jr. (D., Ga.), 1961
    The Russell Senate Office Building is named for him.

    "I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes."

    --Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, 1961
    Kennedy later authorized wiretapping the phones and bugging the hotel rooms of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    "I'm not going to use the federal government's authority deliberately to circumvent the natural inclination of people to live in ethnically homogeneous neighborhoods. . . . I have nothing against a community that's made up of people who are Polish or Czechoslovakian or French-Canadian or blacks who are trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods."

    --Jimmy Carter, 1976
    President, 1977-81
    Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, 2002

    "The Confederate Memorial has had a special place in my life for many years. . . . There were many, many times that I found myself drawn to this deeply inspiring memorial, to contemplate the sacrifices of others, several of whom were my ancestors, whose enormous suffering and collective gallantry are to this day still misunderstood by most Americans."

    --James Webb, 1990
    Now a Democratic Senator from Virginia

    "Everybody likes to go to Geneva. I used to do it for the Law of the Sea conferences and you'd find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they'd just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva."

    --Sen. Ernest F. Hollings (D., S.C.) 1993
    Chairman, Commerce Committee, 1987-95 and 2001-03
    Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 1984

    "I do not think it is an exaggeration at all to say to my friend from West Virginia [Sen. Robert C. Byrd, a former Ku Klux Klan recruiter] that he would have been a great senator at any moment. . . . He would have been right during the great conflict of civil war in this nation."

    --Sen. Christopher Dodd (D., Conn.), 2004
    Chairman, Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs
    Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 2008

    * "You cannot go into a Dunkin' Donuts or a 7-Eleven unless you have a slight Indian accent."

    * "My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state has the eighth largest black population in the country. My state is anything [but] a Northeastern liberal state."

    * "I mean, you got the first mainstream African American [Barack Obama] who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice looking guy."

    * "There's less than 1% of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than 4% or 5% that is, are minorities. What is it in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you're dealing with."

    Sen. Joseph Biden Jr., (D., Del.), 2006-07
    Chairman, Committee on the Judiciary, 1987-95
    Chairman, Committee on Foreign Relations
    Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 2008

    Bonus quote:

    "It has of late become the custom of the men of the South to speak with entire candor of the settled and deliberate policy of suppressing the negro vote. They have been forced to choose between a policy of manifest injustice toward the blacks and the horrors of negro rule. They chose to disfranchise the negroes. That was manifestly the lesser of two evils. . . . The Republican Party committed a great public crime when it gave the right of suffrage to the blacks. . . . So long as the Fifteenth Amendment stands, the menace of the rule of the blacks will impend, and the safeguards against it must be maintained."

    Indeed it does, mainly because PC thugs are still obsessed by it.

    What the hell? Please refrain from defaming me.

    I did not refer to you nor to the term "nigger", so exactly where your silly ranting comes from I don't know. How about you actually try and compose a reasoned argument for once instead of insulting and defaming people and ranting about PC ****.

    Re: Attorney General Trashes Americans as "Cowards"

    PeteEU:

    You bring up the paradoy song: "Barak the Magic Negro" in an attempt to claim racist Republicans. What you, adn allt he other people out there trying to use that as some sort of "RACIST" claim fail, either by ignorance or intent...

    Is that the SONG is a parody NOT of Mr. Obama, but rather an opinion peice in the LA Times. The origin of the song:

    Obama the 'Magic Negro' - Los Angeles Times

    No one cried racist then, but they do... becuase a conservative singer, who works with Rush Limbaugh did the song.


    Racism is a bad thing, but hypocracy and spreading lies is just as bad.

    Re: Holder: US is nation of cowards on racial matters

    POV, I think Holder used a poor choice of a word when he used the word coward. Perhaps something more in line with 'some who uses blinders' would have been more appropriate.
