    Hey, if you're going to trade in gross partisan generalities with no basis in reality, it's only fair if I get to as well.
    Your "if" conditional logic failed. What I said was a gross partisan generality with an enormous basis in reality. Lefties have been ratcheting up the racist rhetoric nonstop for the last 6 years. If they are not trying to foment a race war, they're doing their level best to act like they are.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Acknowledging racism exists is the Real Racism!

    To be fair...I think the ones that are doing it(not all 'lefties') are doing different things with different motivation. The race batters and agitators are doing it to gain support and money. The politicians are doing it trying to inspire people to go to the polls and vote. Problem is...there's a whole lot of stick and no candy. Overall as a population it appears the black community still votes as a bloc....but nowhere near as many of them are inspired to vote. Voting for the black guy has lost that new car smell. The next black guy...well...why should he or she be any different than the last two? So it may stir people up to protest but that doesn't necessarily mean that will translate at the polls.

    I think that is a very benign take on it. It looks very much to me like the left, in lockstep, no less, is wasting no opportunity to try to inflame racial issues and pushing the entire country toward an actual race war. They've been engaging in molehilling exercises in which they have been taking turns creating molehills that they can subsequently call mountains.

    Of course it does.

    Racism exists but it isn't purely the domain of white people and it's not the reason why either Garner or Brown ended up dead. It's not the reason why black on black violence is so high. It's just not the reason republicans detest Obama. It is, however, the convenient and mindless political cudgel that democrats have chosen to wield and it's pushing us closer to a race war than I've ever seen in this country in my adult life.

    You can say that about the extremists. They appeal t the lowest form of dissent and it offers the illusion of power and control. Burn this bitch down feels AWESOME...until you wake the next morning and realize you have just become the king of pooh and you have been throwing **** all around your kingdom.

    The politicians? Nah...they just want everyone to know how down they are, how much they share their pain, and hey...dont forget to vote in November!

    I share some of your cynicism. What's sad is being so dumb that it takes until the morning after to appreciate that harming your own community isn't good.

    The extremists are pushing us toward a race war. And the rest of the lefties defend the extremists and their rhetoric, which gives them ownership, too. Race baiting apologists are race baiters, themselves. When you endorse it, you own it.
