    Uh, no, ace -- that's the headline of the news story, which is required to be the thread title by the rules of the forum.


    Topic Title Is Not:
    Is Carter Right Or Wrong?
    The topic, as defined by the OP is:

    Quote Originally Posted by Alex View Post

    "'I think it's based on racism,' Carter said in response to an audience question at a town hall held at his presidential center in Atlanta. 'There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president.'"

    I am failing to see how Wilson's outburst was in any way a racist one. Every comment made against an ethnic minority is not racist, there should be real reason to believe it is before making the accusation. Otherwise, it just makes the issue worse by adding more situations it can used in, even though there is no justification to do so.

    What exactly was racist about it? Are people going to get tired of being accused of racism with it eventually backfiring on people like Carter who use it to explain something it is not related to?

    I look at Wilson and I ask myself "Has this guy ever said the word nigger in a demeaning manner, in his liftime?"

    The answer...

    ...yes.

    You don't have to like my opinion, frankly I could not give a damn.

    Anyone who votes to keep flying that flag at any public office is a racist son of bitch.
    Anyone who sympathizes with Nazi war criminal, is in the pockets of anti-semitic Arab oil cartels, and vilifies Israel while completely ignoring the plight of Jews and any non-Muslims throughout nearly the entire Muslim world, is a Jew hating nazi.

    For the record I support neither preventing the extradition of a nazi war criminal and flying the confederate flag as I see the latter as culturally insensitive to African americans, however, at least with the latter I can understand how some southerners might see it as a part of their own culture perhaps having relatives who fought and died in the civil war, after all the South was made up of Americans too.

    I have already conceded that the phrase 'you lie' is not racist. Joe Wilson is however.

    He is Strom Thurman's prodigy and a good ol boy who wants to fly the Confederate flag over the state capitol.

    This was planned disruption and disrespect and Wilson's 'apology' is hollow BS.
    There is far more evidence that Jimmy Carter is a Jew hating nazi/Islamist sympathizer than there is that Joe Wilson doesn't like black people, in fact I would say that the former has been conclusively proven.

    If you're through with your childish rants, perhaps you'd allow the rest of us to actually discuss the topic?

    89 pages, and you don't think it's been discussed enough?
