    Anyway, Harry, you're ignoring what the article described as the tone of the speech - "the cult of multiculturalism". I wasn't there, but based on the information in the article, putting the quoted section of the speech in the that context, it is absolutely veiled racism.
    Of course. It must be racism.

    He was condeming a president elected because of his dark skin.

    That must be racist.

Lately, however, racists have been emboldened and, as illustrated here, the code words are out, and the real meanings and intents are back.

    I for one, do not believe that Obama's plans for America are the right ones, and I will always fight against them. But let's call a spade a spade, and tell it like it is. Some of the Obama bashers (not all of them, but some of them, and I want to make that crystal clear), are dedicated racists, and a few (Such as O'Keefe) have long-time connections to white supremacist groups. As the uncle of 3 wonderful kids who are the product of a mixed marriage (and a wonderful one, too), I will fight against these vermin, just as hard, if not harder than I will fight against Obama's policies. If I have my way, these kooks will not gain so much as a foothold inside the Republican party.

I am not a tea partier, I don't agree with them for the most part, but let's not judge them all based on one idiot.
    but redress, he is speaking at a tea party event, invited no doubt. did anyone shout him down? did anyone leave in disgust?

    What percentage of the actual tea party is at the convention? I don't think to my mind that the so called leadership of the movement is really representative of the movement, I think a bunch of politicians just claimed the name since it's a popular thing to be now.

    Right out of the liberal playbook. well done. I'm glad you're coming to terms with your politics.

    Anyway, Harry, you're ignoring what the article described as the tone of the speech - "the cult of multiculturalism". I wasn't there, but based on the information in the article, putting the quoted section of the speech in the that context, it is absolutely veiled racism.
    You should have stopped at "I wasn't there" You have no racist remarks at all to point to.

    I find it ironic that there's a call for a civics, literacy test at a convention where Sarah Palin is speaking. Talk about the elephant in the room.
    Please present your evidence that she is illiterate.

    Yes, ideally we want the voting public to be as informed as possible, but the Vice-Presidential candidate shouldn't need a U.S. history/ poli-sci refresher course before they let her speak in public.
    Psst. That isn't a literacy test
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    You think ignorant people should be allowed to vote?

    Do you give your three year old child the steering wheel when driving 60mph down the freeway?
    I don't believe it is up to me or anyone else to make that decision. It is a civil rights issue.

    Navy is a Conservative, and expresses his Conservatism sometimes in ways in which you might feel insulted. However, he is not a bad guy, just set in his ways. To his credit, he was the first to call Tom Tancredo (The man who called for literacy tests) a loose cannon. So, whatever you think of NP, I can tell you that he is not a racist, and I will bet you dollars to donuts that he deplores racism......

    My Liberal friend.

    Sorry, just couldn't resist getting that last remark (An NPism?) in there.
