    No, BCR, you will never win respect from the Middle East until you convert to Islam.

    And when Americans start believing that their insane hatred against you (and they hate all the democracies by the way) is justified, then the US is on a very slippery downward slope indeed. Quite a different country today than the one your fathers and grandfathers lived in.

    No, it's actually quite accurate, Redress.

    Fine. Don’t call people commies or fascist just because you disagree with them politically.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    My understanding is that these groups were at the Beck Rally. Apparently that was missed by the leftwing

    The Black Conservative Coalition

    Can-You-Hear-Us-Now!: The Black Conservative Coalition

    It does seem that liberals want to keep people dependent and finally it is great seeing black organizations fighting back.

    When you say progressives are all communists, fascists, or socialists you are lying or you are ill-informed. So, you're saying that Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Sergey Brin, and Oprah Winfrey (all known to varying degrees as progressive) aren't all also capitalists? Again, either you are ill-informed, or you're lying. So, please explain how it's not possible for most progessive Americans to also be capitalists?

    And Sanger did some great things for women, but - like many of our American ancestors - held views that we now consider archaic. Let's also recall that a lot of American heroes have significant flaws when it comes to views of things like race, the mentally ill, sex. I mean, our Founding Fathers were largely slave-owners. We can acknowledge the great things they did, but still be against slavery, can't we? Or should we condemn them for their racial views and reject everything positive they did?

    What lame broad brush title are you going to attempt to use on me?

    Hunh. Didn't you just call your fellow Americans (that happen to be Progressives), "Communists?"




    Oh please. Go ahead and search my posting history. You'll not find me using terms like "chimp" when referring to Bush (although his intelligence/wisdom is certainly debatable), or insisting that all conservatives are hard-right, neocon assholes (even though it often seems that way).

    You're just butt-hurt because I think Glenn Beck and those who listen to/believe his self-promotional drivel are idiots, and because I condemn holding a Glenn Beck fan club rally on the anniversary of MLK's most memorable and important speech in order to jerk each other off in public, while insisting that doing so is somehow "patriotic" and "honorable."

    WAaaahaaaa!!!!

    "Beckies?" You seem to have a problem with Conservatives exercising their freedom of speech and label them as "beckies." What exactly is a "beckie" and how are they a threat to you?

    Did you watch the rally today?

    It doesn't mean "racism" - it just means that it's a movement that largely attracts whites. Let's be honest here, Glenn Beck doesn't appeal to too many black people.
    glennbeck.com - Quantcast Audience Profile

    The Tea Party (and the Republican Party for that matter) isn't racist - however, rhetorically it's certainly not very appeling to non-Christians, blacks, gays and other minority.

    When Sarah Palin speaks of "real America"; when Tea Partiers talk about "taking our country back" - it really creates an Us vs. Them mentality. The whole movement comes across, to me, as I have to agree with Glenn Beck to be a part of it. I don't agree with about 90% of what the man says. And I disagree 100% with the way he says it.
    It's already an Us versus Them mentality, FilmFestGuy, because 90% of Black people supported BHO and the Democratic Party. Focusing on one America for all, and fiscal responsibility of course, is something every person can relate to, once the rhetoric subsides.

    You obviously didn't read what I said at all, so just leave me alone unless you address what I wrote - which, if you'd read it - never once said that the rally was racist at all - and said exactly where I saw pictures of the rally - from a link provided BY YOU.

    But why should I be surprised, you never address points made to you. You read one or two words and then post reactionary emotional sludge.

    Did you even read the link that I provided FROM GLENN BECK'S WEBSITE that shows he only has a 2% black audience. I simply said he doesn't appeal to blacks and then provided you with factual proof that he doesn't appeal to blacks. I then posited why this might be - without once attacking the rally or the movement.

    Either read what I write and address it, or ignore me. Because I'm really getting sick of your mischaracterizations of everything I write in every thread.
