That is right, so there is no need to speculate based on such nonsense.
No. A reasonable person would not have such thoughts to start with.
A reasonable person would do what CaptainCourtesy is doing.
Her opinion of Wilson's actions is not evidence.
And why didn't you provide her article where she makes this statement instead of relying on another's quote of her?
Could it be that in it, she herself, exposes her own bigoted thought's, making her a crappy source?
A housewife's blog from Wisconsin as evidence? Seriously?
You only get 2,350,000 for joe wilson racist?
You only get 29,200,000 for president obama racist? 25 million+ more.
It means nothing as to whether they are or are not.
What you provided would only be enough to get you laughed out of the building and would be a source of amusement for years to come.
One persons opinion is not proof of anything other than, it is there opinion.
Wilson's motivations are clear.
Obama is a liar.
Why not try put the focus on the one who is a liar (Obama), instead of trying to discredit the messenger.
You and Carter are engaged in the same thing. Trying to deflect away from the fact that Obama is liar and trying to discredit one person who openly calls him out for it.
But for the sake of argument, lets say Wilson is a racist.
It wouldn't matter because he spoke truthfully.
Obama is a liar.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Jimmy Carter has it ALL WRONG. Joe's comments weren't made because he's a racist. He said what he said because he's a dumbass.

One could consider the the claim of Thurmond having an illegitimate daughter, regardless of her race, to be a smear. The fact that she ended up being Thurmond's daughter shows that Wilson rushed to judge, but doesn't mean his response was racially motivated.and denounced as a “smear” the true claim of a black woman that she was the daughter of Strom Thurmond, the ’48 segregationist candidate for president. Wilson clearly did not like being lectured and even rebuked by the brainy black president presiding over the majestic chamber.
ImmigrationProf Blog: Is Joe Wilson a Racist?
Kooky stuff you find on the internet hardly is evidence. If it was, I'd be able to prove that both Bush and Obama are the anti-christ, 9/11 was an inside job, aliens built the pyramids, and Brittany Spears is the greatest musical artist ever. All of which are clearly insane.Additionally I offer this:

Here is a web search...with many more hits.... in response to the question: Is Joe Wilson racist:

I look at from a different point of view. Racism is a serious charge and is considered to be one of the most dispicable things a person can be. It should only be raised when the case is clear. Claims of racism without any solid foundation weaken the strength of the call to address legitimate problems we still have with race. It poisons and undermines our progress towards ending racism.I offer the above not as proof of Wilson's racial motivation but as proof that such a charge cannot possibly be simply dismissed out of hand.
In police work, the test of "Probable Cause" is one that an investigator must pass in order to receive an arrest or search warrant from a court of law & , while the evidence threshold is low in an application for a warrant, it must be reasonable enough to convince a judge or magistrate that a search is warranted. I believe (my opinion) the above information would establish enough "PC" to get a search warrant from any magistrate in this country, if applied for.
