    It's irrelevant. You are confusing political party with political ideology. It doesn't hold water in the least.

    No matter how you slice it, it's a profoundly idiotic statement.

    Didn't the entire GOP come out to defend it's party over putting Barrack The Magic Negro on CD? I guess that was alright.

    Perhaps, but keep in mind that he was responding in an exchange which started from Kali defining things in terms of party, not ideology.


    And one other point. Roosevelt interning Japanese-Americans during WWII was absolutely wrong, but was not Democrat policy.
    How do you separate the policy from the party? The Democrats were entirely in charge.

    Also, those same Democrats -- Roosevelt especially -- are icons of the modern party. Most of what they did would be, and are, accepted readily as "Democrat policy." How do you separate the onerous policy you don't like but keep the others?

    It was policy of the time.
    If that's the escape clause, then you can say that about any policy by anyone of any party at any time, and no party has any policy at all.


    If a Republican had been President, same thing would have happened.
    There's no way to know that. Nor is there any to know that if a Republican had been President instead of Truman, thousands of German-Americans would have remained interned for years after the war.

    If I remember, the reactions were pretty mixed. I remember some members of the party supporting it as harmless parody, while others condemned it.
    Eschew obfuscation, espouse elucidation.

    'Magic Negro' flap might help Saltsman - Andy Barr - POLITICO.com

    Not everyone is so sure, with some RNC members contending that Anuzis and Duncan may have actually hurt their candidacies with their responses.

    “Those are two guys who just eliminated themselves from this race for jumping all over Chip on this,” one committee member told Politico. “Mike Duncan is a nice guy, but he screwed up big time by pandering to the national press on this.”
    The song, written shortly after the publication of the Times column, was first played on the Rush Limbaugh radio show. On Monday, Limbaugh prominently re-posted the song on the top left corner of his website above the headline, “Drive-by media misreporting of ‘Barack the Magic Negro’ song.”
    “I don’t think he intended it as any kind of racial slur. I think he intended it as a humor gift,” Oklahoma GOP Committeewoman Carolyn McClarty added. “I think it was innocently done by Chip.”
    Alabama Republican Committeeman Paul Reynolds said the fact the Saltsman sent him a CD with the song on it “didn’t bother me one bit.”

    “Chip probably could have thought it through a bit more, but he was doing everyone a favor by giving us a gift,” he said. “This is just people looking for something to make an issue of.”
    “When I heard about the story, I had to figure out what was going on for myself,” said Mark Ellis, the chairman of the Maine Republican Party. “When I found out what this was about I had to ask, ‘Boy, what’s the big deal here?’ because there wasn’t any.”
    Even the negros in your party came out to defend it.

    "Unfortunately, there is hypersensitivity in the press regarding matters of race. This is in large measure due to President-Elect Obama being the first African-American elected president," said Blackwell, who would be the first black RNC Chairman, in a statement forwarded to Politico by an aide. "I don't think any of the concerns that have been expressed in the media about any of the other candidates for RNC chairman should disqualify them. When looked at in the proper context, these concerns are minimal. All of my competitors for this leadership post are fine people

    OK, what's your point here? I couldn't tell from the context.
