    Or the racialists are simply trying to hide from applying that label of RACIST to their own views. They want it both ways so they revel in the attack on Obama enjoying its racist implications but get all huffy when the label is applied to their motivations.

    “Republicans of every ideological persuasion can agree that David Duke’s latest foray into GOP electoral politics must be opposed, and his candidacy for the House of Representatives denied legitimacy,” said Miller. “We applaud RNC Chairman Nicholson’s quick opposition to Duke’s divisive agenda, and we call on other conservative leaders and groups to state for the record their opposition to his candidacy.”

    “We ask Chairman Nicholson to help us recruit and fully fund a viable Republican primary opponent to oppose Duke’s message of intolerance,” added Miller.

    “I hope we can all show solidarity as a Party, and state unequivocally, that David Duke cannot, should not and will not be permitted to advance his agenda under the auspices of the Republican Party,” concluded Miller.
    when he changed his affiliation to (R) I guess he didnt like that much ... Calling Steele a Black Racist, and other republicans traitors...

    Duke is F#$%ing scum...

    so sad to see that you hate America like this.

    Oh sure, liberals will tell you that they love America, and will hold themselves up as patriots who want a strong middle class. But really you know that they hate not just America, but children, Jesus, and Asian people. Everything they say that belies this notion is just them hiding their deep, dark, irrational fury.






    seriously, I thought we had a forum specifically for non-falsifiable thesis conspiracy theories? what is this crap doing up here?

    Because it speaks to the topic and answers your own post with issues that you raised.

    Up is down, left is right ... and the parties each abandoned everything they believed for a 100+ years, to just flip sides...


    Seems Legit...

    No. The first time you do it, it might be innocuous enough if you truly don't know that it will be perceived as racist. But when you KNOW that many minorities find it offensive and you continue to do it anyway, then you clearly DON'T respect them or their views.

    And this takes me back to the point I made earlier: You, a white dude, do not get to decide on behalf of minorities what they can and cannot find racist. If black people believe that debates over "welfare" and "food stamps" are racially tinged, might I suggest that they are in a better position to observe this than you are. And if people continue to use those terms KNOWING that they are offensive without displaying the slightest regard for this fact, then it shows that 1) they don't respect the opinions of minorities, and 2) they believe that THEIR view of racism trumps the view of the people who are actually experiencing it.

    Do you support welfare for the same reason that people support affirmative action?
    I support anti-poverty programs because I want to reduce poverty. I don't really have an opinion on affirmative action.

    Huh? Why would driving a pickup truck be racist?

    that african americans vote democrat is no more a sign that republicans are racist against blacks than the fact that asians vote republican is a sign of the fact that democrats hate asians.
    John Kerry received 56% of the Asian-American vote, and Barack Obama received 62% of the Asian-American vote. But in any case, this is nothing like the 90+ percent of African-Americans which vote Democrat.

    Not really. The American electorate is rather low-information.
    That might explain a SLIGHT partisan gap on the part of any voting bloc. It does not explain a 95-5 (or more) voting gap. When a party can't reliably get more than 5% of the vote of an entire race of people, perhaps it's time to consider the possibility that there is something wrong with the party rather than the voters.

    Fascinating claim. Herman Cain hates black people?
    Has he claimed that blacks have been brainwashed by Democrats? If so, then yes, that's racist. But it's not like Herman Cain's target audience is black people anyway.

    If anything here is derogatory and demeaning to African Americans, it is democrats proprietary relationship towards them.
    I would like to see Republicans do better among black voters too...it isn't good for the health of our democracy for one party to be so utterly alienating to an entire race of people. But the way Republicans can do better is to LISTEN to their concerns and address their issues, rather than merely telling them that their perceptions of the GOP are incorrect, while refusing to change either their rhetoric or their policies. That shows a profound lack of respect for the opinions of black voters.

    IMO they took him too seriously. The man is a caricature of himself and would soon flame out and move onto other things before he could have done any real and long lasting harm.
