Go ahead and be racist all you want - free country.

However, when your newly minted GOP legislatures in states all over the country immediately set out to pass laws specifically targeting blacks and latinos in order to cut them from the rolls, prevent them from voting on days when black churches usually vote and make people present a form of ID that 25% of that specific group doesn't have, then I get pissed....and if people call you racist you had it coming.

I hope Barack can get this thing over the finish line, principally because I think he's been an effective president despite enormous challenges, but also because the GOP needs to be punished for the way they have behaved these last four years.

Historically abusing the fillibuster (from 1 on average a year to 70+ now), negotiating in bad faith and generally making the government an ineffective, national embarrassment.

a_bilge_monkey: coco ebert: I don't think this is necessarily true. If it were true, Blacks would be more split in other Presidential races. The truth is African-Americans tend to vote Democratic instead of along racial lines. Otherwise Herman Cain would have had a lot more support from Black folk.

You know, I've seen many of your posts here, and I find them sane and rational. But I would like you to examine the quoted text and see if you can spot the dog whistle. It's there and it's telling.


If there's a dog whistle, I'm not sure to whom because it certainly wasn't intentional. Are you referring to the fact that I assumed the picture referenced African-Americans instead of any voter who votes for Obama? On that you got me I guess.

Can everyone just shut the fark up? Peas? And carrots too?

//fark you Fox, Limbaugh, Beck, Tea Party, etc for ruining what used to be a decent family. Now I have no one.

Wow, seriously? That really sucks.
Just remember you have a sort of dysfunctional, incestuous, mentally ill second family here on Fark. You can even come over for Thanksgiving, as long as you bring beer and don't mind that tenpoundsofmoron is a distant cousin who comes and spreads feces on the bathroom wall.

/Seriously though, find yourself a group of liberals/secularist friends and you'll have a new family pretty damn quick.

In all fairness, if Republicans lost the racist vote they would be done as a national party. They would lose like 1/3 of their base. Factor in the 47% of Americans who already will never vote Republican...

"Racial prejudice has increased slightly since 2008 whether those feelings were measured using questions that explicitly asked respondents about racist attitudes, or through an experimental test that measured implicit views toward race without asking questions about that topic directly."



That sounds legit.

I love conservative humor. It's not nuanced, intelligent, or even remotely funny. It's simply underlining their frustration.

I imagine the person making this was thinking something like "Grrrrrr, I keep getting schooled in these racial arguments, I'll just HIGHLIGHT THE SOURCE OF MY FRUSTRATION ON A WILLY WONKA MEME. That'll teach 'em."

"Black folk" . If I walked in to a bar, restaurant, grocery store, what have you, and asked "Hey, who are you black folk voting for?", I would be roundly and deservedly chastised for it.

1. Those two idiots are part of something called the "New black panther party", not the one you're thinking of. The only reason you know about them is because Fox News made their group famous - I doubt they have 100 members nationwide.

2. They didn't stop anyone from voting, no one filed complaints and from what I read were asked to leave by the authorities and moved right along.

Those aren't the Black Panthers. They are the New Black Panther party, a group the actual Black Panthers have dismissed as a bunch of AWing clowns.

They have about as much influence among minority leadership groups as your fantasy football team has on the NFL.

2012-10-27 06:39:40 PM  
Yes. Yes it is.

We're all racist in some way or another. People who claim they don't see color are liars, we all see it and it affects us in some way. Most of us actively work to overcome these parts of ourselves and it makes us ashamed to have these thoughts. Others, not so much. So I have this idea that all these distractions about Obama are just reasons that racists have to make it OK to hate him. They can't say he's a bad president because he's black, but it's perfectly OK for them to hate him because he's a socialist. So they have concocted all these lies about who he is and what he's done so they feel justified in hating him so they don't have to admit they just don't like the black guy in the White House.

That became apparent the day after the 2008 election, when republicans suddenly became concerned over the economy at the same time.

2012-10-27 06:43:24 PM  
If black people are voting for president Obama because he's black, why has every democratic candidate for president since Franklin Roosevelt received the majority (70%+) of the black vote?

I know you're not real big on introspection republicans, but just this once you might want to look at your policies, your candidates, your platforms, your major contributors and SuperPacs, your ideas, your legislative voting records, your legislative agenda, your entire party - hell just look in the farking mirror - and think really really REALLY hard about why most black people don't and won't vote for you.

Go ahead, let us know when you've figured it out. We'll wait.
 
2012-10-27 06:44:04 PM  
The Republicans are divided on this issue. Here's an interesting artcle from the New Yorker describing the G.O.P. split over whether to emphasize misogyny or racism

FTA: In one camp is the Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who says that his view that God is sometimes O.K. with rape is "gaining real traction with a key demographic: men who don't like women very much."


"I can't tell you how many misogynists have come up to me at my rallies and said, 'Thank you for saying what you said,' " he told reporters today. "I think they're like, finally, someone's taking a more nuanced position on rape."

(. . .)

Hoping to heal a possible rift with so little time left until Election Day, the R.N.C. chairman Reince Priebus said today that there is room for both views in today's Republican Party: "Our 'big tent' message to voters should be this: come for the misogyny, stay for the racism."

Yeah, I'm done with them. It wasn't just this election cycle; I was told my ex putting me in the hospital was my fault for not obeying his ridiculous demands of control. It took the DA actively barring them from the courthouse when the ex was put on trial for them to finally get it... kind of...
