So much for a "post-racial" United States.

I thought racism was dead now that we have a black president.

Oh, and Tea Baggers aren't racist.

Civil rights icon and veteran Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, said anti-health care bill protesters Saturday repeatedly yelled the "N" word at him as he left a heath care meeting and walked to the Capitol.

"I haven't seen heard anything like this in more than 40 years, maybe 45." Lewis said. "Since the march from Selma to Montgomery really."

I saw that, too. But no one in FYM has ever claimed that the Tea Baggers aren't homophobes and that the US is "post-sexual."

YET.

Why don't you explain the difference, then. Throw nigger in there, as well. Tell me how tea bagger and faggot and nigger are all the same.

We'll wait while you ponder.

This is disturbing:




Supposedly this is in Missouri, and there's plenty of them around the country.

I'm hoping they'll help the GOP shoot themselves in the foot...

If the right wanted respect they would denounce these fools instead of embrace them.

Yeah right. "Vote out the incumbent"?


What if the only opposition is a Democrat?

That'll happen.

No one is embracing the handful of "fools" that crudely disrespected the members of congress on Sunday. Now why are you trying to use the actions of a few to contemn and insult the great, great majority of your fellow citizens peacefully exercising their right to assemble?

On the same day on the mall a handful of antiwar protesters were actually arrested. Do those bozos represent everyone against the wars in the Middle East BVS?

That's an accurate delineation if we include physical violence. But since we are just posting anonymous cyber-speech on the internet with no threat of violence, should a poster calling out a group for shouting pejoratives really being throwing them right back?

My only point.

Have you been to any of these rallys yet? I have and they are not the minority.

They were protesting a mall? Anti-war protestors are a small part of a much bigger sentiment. The "Tea Party" are the rallies. I haven't seen one informed one in the bunch. And those that stand on the fringes, the ones that may not actually be at the rallies but may agree with the sentiment don't speak out against the hatred, the racism, the faulty sense of history, in fact they sit there in denial and say they don't see the racism, etc... I haven't seen you once speak out against their actions, in fact you've often sat there with a straight faced and denied the racism and hatred by Rush, protesters, etc... You've sat there and read the quotes or looked at the signs and denied. Why? Because the party would be fractured if they did. The worse thing that can happen to the GOP right now is if the Tea Party run a canidate of their own, like some are hinting at.

You really don't see the difference?

One group is slinging a perjorative that are laced with historical violence, "perjoratives" that are based on how they are born.

The other group is slinging perforatives based how they chose to associate and behave.

keep it classy, Republicans:

House Dems report vandalism, threats - USATODAY.com


what a trap Obama has laid. watching him carefully allow his opponents self-destruct has become one of his most enjoyable qualities.

And it's always nice to condone violence when even a week before you were implying it (or at least had poor judgement in making your remarks):
Quote:
[Threatened Democrat] Driehaus faults Republicans for providing encouragement to the most extreme opponents of reform. Last week, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) warned that anti-abortion Democrats would suffer politically if they voted for the health care bill; he singled out Driehaus, saying he “may be a dead man” and “can’t go home to the west side of Cincinnati” because “the Catholics will run him out of town.”
