    When's the last time someone of import actually said something to the effect of "all crackers are _______"?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I think Sharpton and quite a few liberals play the race card. Yet you're reacting to me calling out Al Sharpton.

    Thank you captain obvious. You have now caught up with what we have been saying in this thread.

    um..that's called splitting hairs. They are all basically the same & interchangeable.

    though all racism is bigotry & prejudice, not all bigotry & prejudice is racism.

    Who is we? I slap anyone and everyone I disagree with I don't give a rats ass about right or left.

    Freedom of speech. It is his right to say what he likes as long as it is not an issue of public safety. So no, he can say what he likes.

    Freedom of speech is to important to limit it because of ideology.

    I'm curious: why can't you called-out the many Conservatives in this forum, who race-bait?

    Yes, but you are not a partisan hack.

    Snark aside, I dislike the hypocrisy. If any white man would be deemed a racist for the things that Sharpton says and does, then so should Sharpton. It shouldn't be that only Sharpton can make such constant racial attacks, while anyone even passing as pale would be lambasted as racist for doing the same. On the flip side, if Sharpton can say such crap and get away with it, so should white/non-black people.

    I want the same process to be meted out to all.

    Most know that if a white man did just as Al, but said the reverse, there'd be a totally different reaction on this thread, I think.

    The question I asked you twice was:

    How does whether or not Sharpton is a racist depend on "if a white man said the reverse"?

    Answer: It doesn't.

    Got it yet? You continue to define racist as whether or not a white person would be called racist for saying the same thing. That's not the definition of racist. If you want to know if Sharpton is a racist, you go to the dictionary, find the definition of racism and see if it applies to him. You don't find out by asking whether or not people would call a white man racist for saying the same thing.
