Having one's opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.

You aren't helping rebut the charges that your party engages in "identity politics", lady. Right-wingers are gonna jerk it to that sentence as they send out their chain e-mails.

Objectively it's just a true statement.


"Having one's opponent rebut charges their wife is crazy is far better than discussing Reagan abysmal record"

"Having one's opponent rebut charges they're banging Jennifer Flowers is far better than discussing a depressed economy" (but that one didn't work)

"Having one's opponent rebut charges of being a wartime fraud and windsurfer is far better than discussing a quagmire in Iraq"

etc.

Even though they may not be racist, they are rock stupid for using
almost the same arguments that were used by people who tried to
fight against desegregation back in the 1960s.

And for polishing their knobs to copies of GOING ROGUE.

I agree entirely, just trying to put myself into the mind of a Republican. Which is to say I'm trying to forget how to use my brain.

DjangoStonereaver: Even though they may not be racist

i honestly believe that 50-60 percent of teabaggers are straight-up, old-fashioned racists. the rest just hate democrats so much that they're willing to turn a blind eye to racism.

there may be one or two who honestly feel strongly about US economic policy - but seeing as 99.999 percent of teabaggers have no idea what socialism is - or that medicare is a government program - i may be generous with this assumption.

Yeah, its rhetorical misdirection, and its what you do when you can no longer support your argument successfully.

You should really be ashamed to be a teabagger outside of the whole racism issue.

Yes but it was only a few and there is no proof that they weren't liberal plants and maybe Obama shouldn't try so hard to destroy America if he wants us to think he's a citizen of it.

Actually, my favorite is when conservatives try to rationalize that away by comparing it to some of the stupid shiat Code Pink does. Tell you what, teabaggers. If you want to be on par with Code Pink? Knock yourselves out.

Willing to turn a blind eye to racism? That's a pretty good functional definition of racism.

Racism. Racism...racism? Racism. Racist racisty-racismy-racists-racist. Conservatives are racist and the liberals are correct to call them on it. No, liberals are race-baiters who cry racism at every opportunity.

Dose that just about cover it?

Fark's new topic. I bet there'll be five more racism links green-lighted today.

At least one group knew what they were doing.

I'm confused. "More racist than other Republicans"? That implies that there is some correlation between identification with the Republican Party and being a teabagger - and I was assured by the teabaggers that their movement is entirely non-partisan.

Here, I'll cut right to the chase. Yes. Yes, southern democrats fought against desegregation back in the 1960s.

Where are they now? Was the Southern Strategytm a failure? If anything, the tea party is the very definition of the goals of the Southern Strategytm.

It worked, and it killed the Republican party.

hey, dickhead. Look at the 3rd photo from the top. Now look to the left side. You know, the sign that says "this person is not part of our group."

Hmm.

Seeing a pattern here.

Think I'll start showing up to some pro-Obama, pro-Democrat rallies.

MrGumboPants: "We're not racists per se, it's just that poor people tend to be brown. If you can find a non-racist sounding way for me to tell poor people to suck a dick, I'll buy your book or watch your show."

Reasons to Hate Poor People Like I Do:
1) They are poor and respectable people have money.
2) They tend to be unwashed and poor.
3) They don't pay any taxes and I have to.
4) Government cheese causes flatulence, making poor people smelly.
5) I dislike having to step over another ODed junkie between my limo and my condoplex
6) They stand there and stare at me while I sip my caramel moccachino
7) I heard a poor person once raped someone
8) Science has shown poor people to be genetically inferior, in fact, they are no more similar to us in DNA than we are to chimps. They aren't really human, no matter how much they look it.
9) I lost $1000 on the last round of Bum-Fight.
10) Jesus would not have put up with this shiat, so I shouldn't have to.
11) They are poor.

people were skeptical of Brown from the beginning. Most found it gleefully hilarious that he won in MA, and it still is. Doesn't mean he's not a liberal republican

If anything, the Tea Party is reminiscent of the rise of the Goldwater Republicans in the 1960s while the Democrats were fighting against desegregation. This is a fiscal conservative movement. Any ties to crap like supremacist groups is invariably being done by those outside the movement trying to distract from it's actual purpose.
