    You didn't. You cited a random woman on Facebook, a radio show host, and a Congressman who said no such thing that you claimed.

    I listed the Republican's chief mascott and head cheerleader in Limbaugh, a GOP congressman wanting gays struck dead, and a Republican woman who said exactly what the tea party has been saying for years, as I quoted in the link to Salon.

    Right, like I said, you didn't back up your claim. Please show me Republican politicians who SAID WHAT YOU CLAIM REPUBLICANS SAY. Rush isn't a politician in any party, a random woman on Facebook, who the hell knows what she is? And a Congressman that said nothing that you claimed. Nice!

    You just parroted Pat Buchanan. Although that's not the point, it was mentioned below. Hiding from the point by pretending to be working class, when in truth it's the racist Bucanan who is an elitist.

    From the Salon article.
    ...almost uniformly white tea partiers are anything other than a racist, right-wing reaction to the election of an African American president who brings with him feminists and gays (even if he doesn’t do as much for them as they would ideally like). I’m having a hard time seeing the tea partiers as anything other than the spawn of George Wallace racism – the movement Pat Buchanan bragged to me that Richard Nixon made his own. Of course, in that same “Hardball” segment, Buchanan denounced me for condescending to and “demonizing” the tea partiers. I still find that rich: I grew up in lower middle class Long Island, with a first-generation Irish father, going to public schools and universities, while the wealthy Buchanan grew up in Washington D.C. with professionals as parents and attended Georgetown University.

    I never said a politician said it. You made that up after I showed republicans saying it.

    Rush may not be a politician, but he is certainly a party leader.

    What??? No he is not a party leader. I don't know where you get that claim from.

    Ok, so your claim is stupid. There's plenty of people who identify as both Republicans and Democrats who say dumb, racist, sexist, homophobic stuff. What's your point?

    OH stop it. Rush probably has the most power of any single person in the party. His listeners aka dittoheads are disciple like.

    you created the error

    but i am the one who needs to act differently

    how long have you been a registered republican
    No, but nice strawman you built. What you failed to take into consideration was the post I was responding to. You ignore the context of the whole conversation. But keep on if that is working for you.

    I was a registered republican for 15 years, before that I was a registered democrat. For the last 8 years I have been a registered independent.
