    I think sometimes he's an idiot.

    He's extremely fiery but I don't believe he's a racist.

    Do you know what goes on in the mind of David Duke? You don't have to know that to know he is a racist.......

    The ads, of course, are based on a much older cliché which usually ends with a question like “Is the Pope Catholic?”

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Not really, but I'd hardly say that's a litmus test for racism. Perhaps we have different interpretations of the term.

    Based on the definitions, I cannot call him a racist. He is, like many politicians and posters here, using race based arguments and playing the race card. A simple look at the Martin/Zimmerman case and the threads here will show you that most people do this to an extent, including some here calling Sharpton a racist. This however is not an excuse, we should condemn any one doing this crap, I just don't think it is helpful to single any one person out. AS is usually the case with things like this, the people making the loudest arguments against Sharpton are doing the exact same thing.
    Why am I not surprised.....I heard on the news that there are 300 murders in this country every day, mostly black on black..........why doesn't Sharpton ever stick his big fat nose in these cases....

    He skates because he brings votes and cash to the Democratic Party. The brie and chardonnay set that runs the Party for their faction of billionaires love identity politics and anything they can do to generate divisiveness and keep the proles polarized and divided is a big plus for them; they abandoned their traditional labor constituencies when they passed the 'Super Delegate Rule' in 1984; they hated surprises like McGovern and Carter taking over 'their' conventions, and they despise those grubby uncouth proles as much as any Republican does. They like to cater to the 'Creative Class' these days, better known as 'neo liberals'. The proles pissed them off by sniveling about illegal immigration and endangered their rights to have cheap live-in Guatemalan maids for $800 a month and not pay SS or payroll taxes for them.

    The Neo-Liberal War on Blue-Collar Whites and the Breakup of the Democratic Party : NO QUARTER

    Just a snippet; reading the entire article is probably too much to be expected ...

    What we are witnessing is nothing short of the breakup of the historic Democratic coalition. Chris Bowers, Obama supporter and writer at Open Left, dreams of a cultural change in an Obama Democratic Party which is almost a parody of the brie and Chardonnay stereotype:

    There should be a major cultural shift in the party, where the southern Dems and Liebercrat elite will be largely replaced by rising creative class types. Obama has all the markers of a creative class background, from his community organizing, to his Unitarianism, to being an academic, to living in Hyde Park to shopping at Whole Foods and drinking PBR. These will be the type of people running the Democratic Party now, and it will be a big cultural shift from the white working class focus of earlier decades.

    Further illustrating their break with traditional liberalism, Markos Moulitsas has declared himself a libertarian Democrat, in other words: a politically correct Republican. These neo-liberals are really proposing a Party run by those who have little need for government and instead focus on identity politics, environmentalism, post-partisan government, and the rejection of American exceptionalism. The neo-liberals demonize the traditional Democratic base of poor white voters precisely because these voters rely on government and expect their leadership to fight partisan battles on their behalf. They are also deeply patriotic and weary of the moral relativism put forward by the likes of Jeremiah Wright.
    Very accurate article on what was, and is, going on with the Democratic Party wing of the Billionaire Boys Club.

    You and their partners Republicans and 'conservatives have quite a bit in common, actually.

His comments about Jews are negative things that I think perpetuate stereotypes in society, but I think that is more about the Jewish religion rather than the Jewish race. So racist? No. Prejudiced? Yeah.
