    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.
    Then please, document this record. Lets see some credible links.

    I'd love to see some things PROVING that people calling a black politician a "communist", "Socialist", or something of the like is unequivically them actually secretly calling them a "nigger"

    Your opinion hardly matters in the face of the public record.
    Past isn't present. In the past people may have been called socialist or commies because they were socialist and commies. I think that maybe you're taking coincidence, like someone being black and being called socialist, as applying value to the coincidence when it is nothing more than coincidence.

    Your opinion hardly matters in the face of facts and reality. As I said, claiming that those who call Obama socialist or communist or fascist mean to call him the N word is stupid. It's intellectually sloppy propaganda to try to create an ad hominem attack. It's stupid, and that's the plain truth about it.

    I never said a "sizeable majority" of people are saying that.

    You said that and falsely attributed it to me.

    I was clear that code language is sometimes used by the more vocal elements of the population.

    It is my decision to make on whom I choose to make this call, not yours.

    It wasn't. He's doing what a lot of New Black Panthers do. They ignore the fact that the black civil rights movement came to full circle at the height of the Cold War. When we were engaged in Vietnam, the Angolan Civil War other significant conflicts in Asia and Africa it was perfectly normal to use the words 'Communist' and 'Socialist' as euphemism regardless of your race. Just 10 years before McCarthy had led a witch hunt on American liberals by wrongfully labeling thousands as communists regardless of whether or not they were.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    What you apparently do not understand or just purposly ignore is that there is not basis for calling President Obama's policies socialist since they do not meet the definition of economic socialist policies. I do believe that calling President Obama a "soclialist" is a code word and I will go back to the campaign for an example. Sometime during the of one of the presidentials debates there was a picture in the media of a house in the South somewhere that had Palin posters festooned all over but there was a hand written sign that said something such as " vote for xxxxxx a reeal American not Obama the "SOCIALEST" . Yes the idiots spelled socialist the way that they pronounce it , "socialest". Yes they were rednecks and yes I believe that they were racists.

    yes there are those who are just plain ignorant and really think that President Obama is a "socialist" but that term is just coming up to often to be coming from people who actually know what a socialist is.
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr
