    I'm not saying it's not your call, I'm saying it's stupid to equate the two.

Nobody would ever think of calling a liberal a communist! YEAH! That's it. From now on instead of calling Obama a nigger. We'll call him a commie!
    Always interesting to encounter a poster who fails desperately in familiarizing themselves with the history of labeling black civil rights leaders, and black politicians with code language words such as "communist," "socialist," and "fascist."

    It is nothing new.

    Like I said, recycled garbage.

    Yet since I am a very cooperative person by nature I will give you a clue and I do not do this for just anyone but you are basically a reasonable civil guy so I will help you out. Think about a diminuative version of a bush. It's conceptual not visual so some people get it right a way others work on it for a while. I am sure that you got the deal since you are a urbane intelligent guy.
    Oh.

    OHHHHH.

    So it was a childish and ridiculous name calling of a President for no other reason than to try to degrade, something akin to what you see 3rd graders do when they'd call a classmate named "Bart" fart or when a kid with the last name of "morehead" as "Dumbhead".

    I get it now.

    Wow, phew. My bad there. Been a while since I was back in Elementry School.

    Seriously, what's the point in that? Its no better...actually worse because its just degrading and not at least trying to prove a political point....as CelticLords idiotic constant "Dear Leader". You sit here saying that people who dare to compare Obama to a socialist are really just horrible bigoted racists that are wanting to call him a nigger, yet you're going to sit there and act like a 3rd grader calling a former President "Shrub" for no other reason than to be derogatory and insulting. It diminishes your entire point and your standing as someone actually worth discussing anything with, as it shows you're more concerned with degrading and insulting the other side than having an actual conversation based on facts, reasoned opinions, and principles.

    History stubbornly disagrees with your claim.

    In fact, the two have been equated, countless times in different decades.

    Your opinion hardly matters in the face of the public record.

    Did you just say I don't know my black civil rights history? Please tell me you didn't?

    What record? You keep talking about some historical record. Can you show us some kind of actual proof...and I mean actual proof not just you stating something and expecting us to take your word for it cause you've shown in short order you're not worthy of that benefit of the doubt....that people have been called communists or socialists or fascists and its unquestionablly really meaning "nigger"?

    The sad pathetic thing about this is that if you came in here and simply complained about idiots calling Obama a nazi, or calling him a communist, or something like that I'd actually have agreed with you. Its as idiotic to do that with Obama as it was to call Bush a Nazi or a Fascist.

    However, to say a sizable majority of those saying it are doing it to "secretly call him a nigger" is baseless, useless, unfounded, unverifable, assumption backed opinion. An opinion that, frankly, based on the fact few here actually have any history with you to know the quality of your opinions save for what you've posted thus far, has absolutely no credibility to make people actually care to take your opinion as worth while.

    What history is this?
    Does anyone know a period where the word 'Communist' was used as a substitute for 'Nigger' .... anyone?

    Most people do not mean to call him a "N" word.

    But for the more vocal and crazy elements...absolutely.

    It is a judgement call.

    Code language for civil rights leaders and minority politicians is nothing new.

    The record is more than clear.

    The civil rights era.

    Plenty of books have been published on this very subject.
