    Yep, that's how I read it. Actually, this tactic is quite common among leftists in europe. I really hate to see this crap on this side of the atlantic however I'm beginning to see american liberals as nothing more than the lap dogs of european leftist these days. Pity.

    Then why bring up segregation? It seems to me that you wish to paint Tea Party protesters as racist. You could have said a couple of other issues that crosses party lines lines like illegal immigration, opposition or support for world trade,Abortion and a bunch of other issues.
    "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"

    It can seem to you whatever you want. You asked me to clear my position. I did. Would you like to keep bitching?

    Mostly, republicans and democrats are representing their constituency as best as they can. The problem is I don't belong to the same culture as those in san francisco which is different than that represented in southern california all of which is a world away from my culture. The end result of multi-culturalism I believe. Pity.

    Pretty much it is. There was a time in my youth when you had a conservative and liberal wing of both parties. Not so these days.

    Liberals stereotypically like to paint any opposition as racist.You could have selected number of other issues that crosses party lines and is race neutral but instead you chose to compare support segregation in the 50s and 60s to the Tea Part Protesters. I know that you are not a ignorant man and that you are well aware of all these other issues that you could have made comparisons to. So I have have to wonder what your motives are for bringing up a dead 50 year old issue that you and I were not around when it happened when making a comparison to Tea Party protesters.

    But keep avoiding the lead. How's your party doing? Can't accomplish a damn thing because the public hates everything the Dems are proposing.

    Buyers remorse among voters has set in worse than I've seen in my lifetime.
    We are keeping the Republicans out of government so they can't do more damage. That alone is an enormous accomplishment.
