    Re: Jimmy Carter: Wilson comments 'based on racism'

    dang, 150 posts about personalities, parameters, non-empirical viewpoints and prejudiced pundits

    LOLOLOL!

    for those more mature members of this forum (the majority, thankfully), let's get back to the topic at hand:

    press secty gibbs decidedly DISAGREES with carter the vacillator

    but then gibbs says he "does not see a large national conversation going on" on this topic

    the press secty must be blind, unfortunately

    and/or deaf

    the topic was the leader for chrissy's hardball this afternoon and the finale on baier's special report on fox

    if opposition to obama over reform is RACIST (LOLOL!), then why did, how could SEVENTY PERCENT of americans once have APPROVED of our excitingly FIRST african american president?

    rasmussen, the most accurate pollster in the nation in 04, 06 and 08, has only TWELVE % (today) agreeing with the hammer holding homes-for-humanity herald

    while SIXTY SEVEN % beg to differ with the worst president america has suffered since ww2

    12% Say Most Opponents of Obama Health Care Plan Are Racist - Rasmussen Reports

    http://www.fordham.edu/images/academ...20election.pdf

    another point---if joe wilson IS indeed a racist, then it is a BIGOT who just beat obama's bruised behind on the issue of illegals

    WH on health care, illegal immigrants - First Read - msnbc.com

    indeed, just like obama, GATEKEEPER baucus felt compelled to go out of his way to PUT IN enforcement mechanisms currently nonexistent in the house bill to ensure our illegal neighbors and friends are NOT included in expanded coverage

    washingtonpost.com

    congressman emanuel cleaver of missouri, a black dem, said today that his party "couldn't make a bigger mistake" than to impose race as an issue into these debates

    he's right

    leaders are always foolish who ATTACK their critics

    and labeling racist all the people pictured below, in today's social/political context, is about as bad as calling them all a bunch of child molesters



    it's suicide politics to assail concerned citizens as racist who simply scruple to question their president over the specifics of his piece

    to do so would be to include jay rockefeller, ron wyden, diane feinstein, charlie rangel (the most corrupt man in washington) and dozens of other prominent dems from both wings of the party as HATERS

    oh well, carry on

    the dems struggle mightily with the fundamental difference between LEADERSHIP and cheap, ordinary opposition politics

    health care is in ICU

    Re: Jimmy Carter: Wilson comments 'based on racism'

    It's such a stupid thing.

    Is it really a good idea for the Democrats to be beating this preposterous drumbeat that everyone opposed to this health care bill is racist (among a whole of other nasty things)? Opposition is, by most polls, the majority position, and the Democrats are going to alienate more and more people the shriller they get.

    We've got the usual suspects running around this board squealing about how the Republican "scare tactics," et al., against Democrats are going to turn voters off. Well, the Republicans are attacking Democrats. With all of this stuff, Democrats are attacking the voters, with vile, nasty bilge.

    They keep it up, they could be routed next year. "You think I'm a racist, huh? See ya."

    7 times out of 10 when I hear this racist crapola it is coming from the right wing not the left wing. Granted there is Al Sharpton and comments from Jimmy Carter but just listen to AM radio and it is all they can talk about!

    It's not the "right wing" saying opposition is racist.

    June 2008
    THE RACISM: At the Texas state GOP convention last June, one vendor sold this button asking, "If Obama is President will we still call it the White House?" Get it? Because he's black.

    October 16, 2008
    THE RACISM: The classy October newsletter of the Chaffey Community Republican Women of San Bernadino, California, contained a food stamp depicting Obama as a donkey surrounded by things black people are supposed to enjoy eating.


    November 5, 2008
    THE RACISM: South Carolina political consultant, and co-owner of the political website SC Hotline, Jeffrey Sewell, made an insightful Obama-Curious George comparison on Twitter the day after the election.

    December 2008
    THE RACISM: As a Christmas present, Tennessee RNC chairman Chip Saltsman sent out a CD of political parody songs, including one called "Barack the Magic Negro," which was based on the title of a Los Angeles Times article of the same name.

    January 2009
    THE RACISM: Salvatore Ballarino, an appointed member of Staten Island's Community Education Council District 31, forwarded numerous, supposedly humorous, photo strips comparing black people to monkeys or excrement.

    January 30, 2009
    THE RACISM: After President Obama's inauguration, Carol Carter, a Republican state committeewoman in Florida, sent out an e-mail quipping "How can 2,000,000 blacks get into Washington, DC in 1 day in sub zero temps when 200,000 couldn't get out of New Orleans in 85 degree temps with four days notice?" The subject line, providing a truly dishonest assessment of the contents within, read, "Amazing!"

    Feb 25, 2009
    THE RACISM: Dean Grose, the mayor of Los Alamitos, California, thought a "small group of friends" -- including a black woman, not incidentally -- would get a kick out of an e-mail showing a watermelon patch growing on the White House lawn, and the caption, "No Easter egg hunt this year."


    March 9, 2009
    THE RACISM: The mayor of Dallas, Georgia, posted an esoteric message on his Facebook page, seen here, that is believed by the Internet-commenter hive-mind to refer to Schlitz beer and Camel cigarettes -- you know, things Obama might reasonably be expected to offer Gordon Brown as a gift.

    THE RACISM: On their website, the Republican Women of Clifton joked that Baskin Robbins had created a new ice-cream flavor named Barocky Road, which was half vanilla and half chocolate. But, this extended metaphor continues, the "vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually denied as an ingredient," which doesn't even make any sense.

    July 1, 2009
    THE RACISM: After a friend elegantly declared, "obama bin lauden is the new terrorist....muslim is on there side...need to take this country back from all of these mad coons........and illegals" on the Facebook wall of Young Republican vice-chairman Audra Shay, Shay responded, eight minutes later, "You tell em Eric! lol."


    but Jimmy, what republican racism are you possibly referring to? [/s]
    All you have proven is that racism exists. I never said it did not. You did NOT address the issue of whether what Joe Wilson said was because of racism. Therefore, your post is irrelevant.

    It wasn't really necessary for you to PROVE his point which you were evidently proud to prove (below).
