Second. Jerry Farlwell. If you're going to put Sharpton, Limbaugh could be argued in a similar way. Council of Conservative Citizens. The KKK. American Third Position. All are right leaning
Third. Well known Organization != number. You didn't say there were more well known racist organizations, or more well known racist spokes people. You said there were more racists, period.
Fourth. Really, if you want to get into this argument, we could always branch it off into other ism's and bigotry. Irrational hate is irrational hate. That said, the pissing match grows a bit off topic. But its ridiculous to suggest that someone's ignorant for suggesting the Tea Party is racist while turning around and declaring it a fact that there are more Democratic leaning racists then Republican ones and then throw out anecdotal information as somehow "proving" that "fact".
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
53% of registered republicans do not believe that President Obama was born in the USA and another 27% state that they are not sure, Here is my conclusion either they have no faith in the Republican party to ascertain the eligibility of a Presidential candidate or they are consciously or subconsciously racistHow Racist is America and How Is This Used and Perpetuated? - democracycellproject
Here are some of the findings:
The poll sampled 2777 white Americans and was done by AP-Yahoo News, conducted with Stanford University. One third of white Democrats harbored negative views toward blacks and 40% had at least a partially negtive view (harbored at least one presented negative). This could mean 2-1/2 percentage points who might not vote for Obama, according to the analysis, enough to swing a close race away from him. They also used a model to predict that Obama's support would be at least 6% higher if not for the racism.
Another term being used more recently by Leftists is the charge of "using code words", or language, which is another way to describe "subconscious racism', without having any evidence that such racism actually exists.
Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
That bit of ignorance (birtherism) stems from a core bigotry, seeing the black man as 'the other'. Not trusting the colored (in their minds, less-American) skin. These may be perfectly nice people on the surface. They know black people, work with black people, and would never utter a racist word publicly. But in the those secret, private moments, they have that lingering doubt that the black man with Muslim name is not really American.
It has EVERYTHING to do with racism.
It is a very limiting belief to only think racists come in sheets. They're typically the older generation, people set in their ways. Again, not overt, but the bigotry is there, just below the surface.
The poll I presented polled democrats and look at the results.
Now back to the topic should Bachmann debate Amy I would think it would be a no winner for Bachmann

New Poll Finds Tea Partiers Have More Racist Attitudes
Are tea partiers racist? That question has triggered a flood of impassioned commentary in recent months. Opponents depict the movement as a band of cranky old white people brimming with racial resentment, as evidenced by the inflammatory signs that pop up at their rallies and coded language about "taking our country back." Supporters say the movement is motivated quite simply by resistance to big government and that the occasional flashes of racism are overhyped by the media and representative of only a small fringe. As Gallup's Frank Newport recently wrote, "Each side of the political spectrum appears to have a vested interest in portraying the Tea Party movement in the specific way that best fits their ideological positioning." Yet neither side has had much empirical data to draw on.
So a new poll by researchers at the University of Washington caught my eye. The findings are sure to fan the flames further. "People who approve of the Tea Party, more than those who don't approve, have more racist attitudes," says Christopher Parker, a University of Washington professor who directed the survey. "And not only that, but more homophobic and xenophobic attitudes." For instance, respondents were asked whether they agreed with various characterizations of different racial groups. Only 35 percent of those who strongly approve of the tea party agreed that blacks are hardworking, compared with 55 percent of those who strongly disapprove of the tea party. On whether blacks were intelligent, 45 percent of the tea-party supporters agreed, compared with 59 percent of the tea-party opponents. And on the issue of whether blacks were trustworthy, 41 percent of the tea-party supporters agreed, compared with 57 percent of the tea-party opponents.
The survey, which included about 1,000 respondents in six battleground states (like Michigan and Nevada) and California, found similar margins on questions regarding Latinos. And tea-party supporters were far more likely than opponents to say that immigrants take jobs from people living here (59 percent agreed with that statement), that immigration from foreign countries should be decreased (53 percent agreed), and that undocumented immigrants in the U.S. should be deported immediately (45 percent agreed).
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
