    I wonder if you'd be so generous if this was a conservative we were discussing.

    As for your comment that this was to "one up" the NAACP, may I remind you that the NAACP's charges were a steaming pile of manure that have absolutely no foundation in truth, while the NAACP is riddled with racism within it's ranks.
    Good God, dude...she exposed herself to the world to try and help people to learn from her mistake. Instead of beating her to a pulp with a sledgehammer you might want to embrace her for her example. You might want to express appreciation for her honesty, for her candor, and for her willingness to speak in front of a GROUP of NAACP members and set an example of growth. You know...its just a thought...

    And of COURSE I realize the NAACP comments regarding the Tea Party were bull****. Its viable to call the NAACP out and let the Tea Party position stand on its own merits. Arguing against a steaming pile of **** with your own version of steaming **** makes you just as dirty, dontcha think?

    This didn't HAPPEN in this day and age. It happened 24 years ago. Try to keep up, Barb.

    Facts be damned.

    That statement is another example of the inherent dishonesty that the progressive movement thrives on. If you can't dispute the facts, just attack and smear...

    Actually, I've been even more pissed about white people who were attacked for using the word niggardly by morons who thought it was a racial slur.

    Controversies about the word "niggardly" - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "I bet that even as I write, some adolescent boys, in the stairwell of some high school somewhere in America, are accusing each other of being niggardly, and sniggering at their own outrageous wit. I bet ... Wait a minute. 'Sniggering'? Oh, my God...."--John Derbyshire

    Why that would mean they might have to accept that they made a mistake and this little snippet DIDNT actually support their position. No...we cant have that.

    I SO couldnt run for government office...

    Facts of another case. Tea Party people have various demonstrations. There are occasional demonstrations of racism by some members. Nothing happens. NAACP makes information public. One of the Tea Party people is kicked out after racist writing.

    In both cases, Fox and NAACP made information public. In the first case, NAACP gets condemned for racism. So are we supposed to condemn racism by Fox for only publicizing the second case and not the first.

    I'm confused where anyone is doing anything wrong in both of these cases with the exception of the racist behavior. NAACP is supposed to look after the rights of African Americans, Fox is supposed to look after the rights of conservatives. Looks pretty even to me.
    This did report the case about the tea party. Step away from moveon.org.....

    FOXNews.com - Video Shows USDA Official Saying She Didn't Give 'Full Force' of Help to White Farmer

    YouTube - NAACP Bigotry in their ranks
    Strikes again?

    I find it hard to believe that anyone still takes this clown seriously.

    What would you say if Daily kos released a selectively edited clip of a conservative like this without the full context? I'm betting you're first reaction wouldn't be to raise a pitchfork up to the conservative as you are doing to this lady.

    Every conservative in this thread that thinks that this video proves that the NAACP is a racist organization needs to lay off the kool aid and think for themselves.

    I wonder if you'd be so niave to think it'd be different.

    For example, I'd have nothing but love for a Westboro Baptist Church Member or a KKK member who had something happened that changed their view and renounced their old viewpoints. Telling the story of how they changed their views, has no bearing on my opinion of them as they are now, and their are certain exceptions such as if the KKK member lynched a black man, but even then, he should stand trial for what he did, but more power to him for renouncing his views anyway.

    I actually had a chance to write a character for a show I did. And my character was a 1920's KKK white Farmer. Who hated blacks with a passion, and had once in a mob mentality participated in a lynching. But one day, his daughter was swimming in the river near the border of the farm, and she got swept up in the current, my character could not swim, but one of his black farmhands could, and jumped in to save his daughter. From that day forth he changed his mind completely but society at that point didn't allow him to stop going to Klan Meetings or to openly admit that blacks were equal. - Jetboogieman
    Now that might be general rambling. But let he who is without sin cast the first stone in this case.

    I feel quite proud to know Tom Leyden, a former skinhead who has renounced his racist views and now works to provide training on the skinhead movement to law enforcement.
