I don't get this part
Trent Lott isn't a racist because Al Gore Sr. could also be called one??

I believe Bama is referring to Al Gore Jr. pointing the finger at Trent Lott, while his own father supported the same causes as Trent.

Peace

I am with you Diamond, I do believe the party is better off with him stepping down. I am also proud that the party is policing its own.


Peace

This isn't even close to being funny, Dreadsox. Like straight white guys are persecuted. Come on. This is the clever little saying that you guys like to throw around instead of addressing the real issue of gay rights and the Republican lip service to "keeping government out of people's lives."


This pisses me off every time it's trotted out.

I still don't have a clue what that has to do with anything

Let it b understood, we removed a person who did not adequately represent our party nor America.
We removed him quietly swiftly, like a skilled surgeon removing a cancer growth..

Do not think that because of this, we are now planning on changing policy on every social issue.
That all of a sudden the left has carte blanche to their agenda.
No no little friends, this is inncorrect.
The policies promlugated by the left have failed miserably over the last 4 decades.
Our course remains the same.


Our words to you are as far as bigots/intolerence is concerned is.."Do thou likewise"
That said we teach you a new word.."accontability"

God Bless
Peace
Out-

Diamond


ps-whos your daddy
thank u

No one is defending Lott's record. No one is supporting segregationist policies, etc.

The issue is should someone lose their job because of a casual comment. Even worse, as your qote points out, Lott did not say "we'd be better off because of your segregationist policies".

I bet every politician who has made a run at the White House has heard the statement "we'd be better off if you'd won". Does that then imply that you stand for every position the former candidate held?

I'll state it again, the word police had their field day.

so you are upset because there isn't a thread in here that claims that Al Gore Sr. is a racist?

no not upset.
pointing out the disparity of their hypocrsy.
the hype spun by the left is that they are "pure as the driven snow"..
they have a field day in the Media esp of pointing out only racists/bigots on the right.
they never weed out their bigots as the republicans just have..

after Trents dismissal the reublicans can now turn the mirror on the democrats..

u seem openminded enough to follow the concept..

It wasn't a casual comment.


It's disingenuous of you to keep insisting that it was. Go back and look at this man's voting record in Congress.

Ya know Martha, I have responded respectfully to your posts.

The point is, I believe the constitution already covers people of different color/sex/orientation or add anything you want to add to it. I suppose we could add Amendments to it for every special interest group if we wanted to.

If my sense of humor offended you, I am sorry. I have nothing but respect for my fellow man, straight, gay or whatever. As a matter of fact, I do believe I was quite outspoken about my belief that gay couples should be allowed to adopt on this board.

All this is fine and dandy, however, it really does not belong in this thread now does it?

Peace

Martha is right about this.
He was bad for America.
all racists are of ANY polictical affiliarion who refuse to take ownership of personal responsibility of bigoted statements are bad for America..

Also Senators and Presidents who-
abuse power
obstruct the law
lie under oath
prey on women
refuse to take ownership of their wrong doings are bad for America
and
bad for humanity..
Simple as that.

Long story short, Trent did the right thing for his country by stepping down, at the end of the day, while others have not.
