    Christian Identity is just a new marketing term for the KKK.

    For the part I did not answer, I think a congressional white caucus would be fine with me if it passed the same litmus test I defined.
    Thank you.

    I think we would be far better off if we did not allow members of our government to intentionally align themselves with racial politics. What individuals do is up to them.

    That bit is funny to two types of people. I was in a limo in Los Angeles with two wealthy colleagues from Texas who are very racist and they think it is hilarious. I think it's hilarious too, but for entirely different reasons. Racists like to laugh at the notion of a black KKK leader unaware and decent humans laugh at the satire and irony. Racists see Chappel's act as minstrel, the initiated know he is a dissident political satirist of the first order.

    Haven't you heard? If you ever disagree with a Conservative, it's not possible to be anything other than a Liberal. You should subscribe to the newsletters.

    Maybe it does.

    That has nothing to do with racism. But for the undisclosed leaning people it blinds you to actual racism. Doesn't it?

    It's a two way street. Christianity has a big tent and ironically none too discriminating.

    I have no problem with it personally, people looking at policies along racial lines is as good or bad as looking at policies in accordance to any number of demographics, ideology, social status, geographical location, income, etc. The simple fact is that different segments of the population need different things from government.

    I have a problem with groups that promote one group in exclusion to or to the purposeful detriment of other groups for the purposes of dominance (provided all groups involved are legitimate, dominating criminal activity for example would be fine by me). I don't see the CBC as doing that.

    I think there are lots of people who think they can fool others by having an undisclosed lean or an independent lean. But one's posts reveal one's beliefs. So claim to be independent all you want but people will eventually know what you really are. I was just pointing it out.

    So back to no one. I am so glad we are clear on this. Anyone else?

    We are clear you are not facile with English and therefore uninitiated as to the fair import of common idiomatic expressions. The first order of business in dealing with a reprehensible fact pattern shrouding a more nuanced point is to acknowledge the obvious, then move on to the narrow issue. That conservatives here alone do not decry the obvious before insisting on complete race neutrality broadcasts racism like a megaphone on full gain.

    You will know them by their fruits. -Jesus
