randomjsa: Ah yes, the left celebrates the destruction of another minority, but remember kids... It's the right who are the racists.


If the right weren't racist they would have a lot more people of color in their tent.

/See also: If they were less sexist they would have more women.

They would also find less crazy people of color to run for them than convicted war criminal Allan West.

When you looked at the crowds at Romney events with the sea of predominantly white faces and then at the Obama events in which the crowds more closely resembled what America actually looks like in 2012 how you could not see that the GOP have a very real problem in terms of appealing to anyone but the old, the white and the fundified?

Fact of the matter is that all the derp that the right have spun since Obama's election in 2008 about "White liberal guilt" being a factor in his winning has been pure deflection. The reality is that there is a very real sense among some people in the mostly white GOP that the privilege that being white in American society once bestowed on an individual was going the way of the dodo in the wake of changing demographics and attitudes.

This is, I think, a large part of what has made them go so remarkably bat-shiat the last few years.

O'Reilly bemoaning the death of white privilege in the wake of the 2012 election results the other night on FOX told this tale again.

But you go on with your "Who's the real racists here?" derp in spite of all the facts.

Your inability to process reality is occasionally amusing.

/Yes, I'm very easily amused.

Loaded Six String: Does this apply to socially liberal, fiscal conservatives in your experience as well? I only ask because I don't use the term Democratic party, yet I'm not a raging right-wing asshole. Could just be me I suppose.


1) you are gramatically incorrect if you use the phrase "Democrat Party." Not because of anything to do with whether it's an adjective or whatever. But because it's a proper name. The proper name is the Democratic Party.

2) the phrase became popular on the right for the "rat" emphasis. With that in mind, you should be aware when you say it that not only are you gramatically wrong, but you are using a term conceived to be insulting.

3) so, now you know the grammar and history of this epithet and if you continue to use it, then yes, you are a right-wing asshole.

bugontherug: Loaded Six String: You take offense to my dogwhistle term used in ignorance, I take offense to being lumped in with authoritarian theocrats when my personal political views diverge in many ways. Tomato, tomahto. I do like the conversation though.

I didn't want to play this card, but you DID call yourself a fiscal conservative. These days, that is at least as likely to mean "ideologically opposed to the welfare state" than "desirous of achieving legitimate democratically determined goals via fiscally responsible means." If you're in the first category, then I feel the moniker "right-wing" fairly applies. If you're in the second category, then why bother calling yourself conservative?

Now, whether or not that's based on a correct inference of your intent from using the phrase "Democrat Party," is a slightly different question. I will say though, that even if you used the term innocently (when I started college, I embarrassed myself when I didn't realize it was impolite to refer to Asian people as "oriental," so I can forgive), but I will say that the fact that you regard "Democrat Party" as normal does suggest you've interacted heavily with right-wing circles. I don't think I ever heard the term before I heard Tom DeLay using it in the late 90's or early 2000s.


Ah, I see now. Much like the inappropriate usage of Oriental, I admit that my usage of Democrat rather than Democratic was probably due to social influences. My father is a registered Republican but I know his logical brain fights against the derp, so I'm not terribly worried about him. That's probably where I picked the term up.

As for why I identify with the term conservative, it comes down to the separation of fiscal and social policy as you stated. I am concerned with bureaucratic bloat and expanding federal powers. I do recognize the definite benefit of social policies which contribute to a better standard of living, but I'm not content with policies for the sake of legislation. To put it another way, if a benefit can't be shown within say 5 years of a program being implemented, it needs to be scaled down or removed to save costs.

A quick rundown on some things I deem important to me politically: The Patriot Act is terribad and needs to go. The war on Drugs is a tremendous waste and needs to be scaled back drastically or removed. While I'm not fond of a federal government with broad power given our system of government, laws regarding firearms should probably be preempted by the federal government at this point due to too many states, cities, and counties regarding themselves as fiefdoms with regards to regulation. The caveat being that Constitutional precedent has already been set, regardless of the grammatical whinging over the militia clause. I think each candidate for national office should be supplied a set amount of campaign funds once they've garnered the nomination, with the leftover returning to government coffers. I'm not pleased with the influence money has on our legislative process at all, but I'm currently at a loss as to what can be done to curb lobbying for all the good and evil it does.
I think a stand needs to be made over religious institutions attempting to influence legislation. All marriage licenses should be civil union licenses, and the term marriage can be used specifically for religious ceremonies. There just isn't a rational reason not to award the same benefits and privileges and responsibilities to same sex couples as heterosexual couples. Either that or get rid of those benefits, privileges, and responsibilities for heterosexual couples. I'm tired of all the whargarble surrounding that issue. The best way to reduce the number of non medically necessary abortions is proper sex education (abstinence is prohibition, and prohibition doesn't work) coupled with easily procured birth control and contraceptives. If a reversible male birth control were ever developed, I would highly recommend it be administered to all males at the age of 13 and be reversible on request from age 18 onward on a system similar to shall issue concealed weapons licenses, but with no requirements or paperwork or fees. Go to your local hospital, say the word, and *bang* you're not shooting blanks anymore. I'm sure there's more, but this is tl;dr anyway.

Good luck.
For every Allen West that barely gets booted out, there is a Michelle Bachmann sitting pretty.

If the law allowed, my (R) state senator and my (R) US House rep could probably go on a killing spree and still win reelection from prison. They have been proven corrupt and choosing personal gain over gains for their constituencies time and time again. People don't really even like either one of them. But they still vote for their incumbents religiously.

So if they will vote for obviously corrupt assholes, getting them to vote for a nutjob is a cake walk.
I mean, no matter how crazy the person is OH I ADMIRE HOW MUCH HE/SHE STANDS BY HIS FAITH AND BELIEFS

It's not about selecting responsible people to govern. Every election is a battle and they rally behind the same shield time and time again.

Most extreme right wing voters don't think their politics, they believe in them. They have faith. This is the state of our union now. You'd have as much luck getting many Republicans to convert to Islam as to vote out their wingnuts. These are people haven't let go of the Red Scare yet... Joe McCarthy was a patriot, Republican Jesus makes sense..... and they all vote.

We won't vote these wingnuts out anytime soon, we need to marginalize them to the back of the room. Sit them at the kids table. If we ever hope to govern our nation this is a must.

You wont get a response from randomthreadshiatter, but my understanding of how the right wing brain works (if you can call it working), is that they think that minorities are the real racists, because they vote for people with their own skin color, rather than based on issues. They then ignore the fact that they themselves just made a blatantly racists statement about minorities, while providing no evidence for their own viewpoint. See, for example, Bill O'Reilly, Romney Campaign Chair John Sununu, GOP Rep Andre Carson. So not only is re-electing the first black President NOT evidence of a lack of racism among Democrats, it's actually EVIDENCE of racism. Because apparently only white people vote based on issues.

But don't you dare call them racist. YOU'RE the racists!

> I attribute it to vocal laziness I suppose, though I must admit I have been a bit curious as of late as to why one political party named itself to promote democracy, whereas the other named itself to promote a republic (correct?).

If you wish to heap scorn on someone (whether it was directed at me personally or just a generalization) you should probably find something with a bit more meat to it, especially when your derision is based on a supposition of their political views (in which case, you're way off base with me. Again, if it was directed at me personally, kind of hard for me to tell.)

Dafatone: Jim_Callahan: antidisestablishmentarianism: When someone uses Democrat when they should be using Democratic, you can dismiss anything else they have to say.

Why? It's a bit silly grammatically, but the part of speech on Democratic isn't quite right for a title either, more a remnant of the party being called Democratic Republican back in the 1800s. It's also rather absurdly general, as both parties are democratic (and republican, for that matter, were you to use the adjective use of that word instead of the noun).

Not that "the Grand Old Party" is any less silly, but at least it's an actual name instead of a generic adjective regarding the system of government for the entire first world.

No idea why. None at all. But the rule applies. Any time someone says "Democrat Party" they're raging right-wing assholes. Again. No clue why. You're right, it shouldn't mean anything. But it always does.


Not kidding you.

The reason is because when they call it the "Democrat Party" they can emphasize the "rat." To imply that Democrats are rats.

randomjsa: Ah yes, the left celebrates the destruction of another minority, but remember kids... It's the right who are the racists.

Seems like I remember hearing this same drum beat of how the Republican party and/or Conservatives were a done deal in 2009.

Are you sure this time?


I don't think one crazy black guy losing means the end of the entire minority.

If Allen West is denied a recount, then it would be just like the Holocaust all over again.

Fun game: Replace every instance of "Allen West" with "Convicted war criminal Allen West."

PC LOAD LETTER: Weaver95: well...if the vote was that close a recount was probably inevitable.

True, though this asshole would have demanded a recount even if it was a landslide.

Keep teasing him. Tell him it's too close to call. Make him spend himself into bankruptcy trying to fight the results. For the lulz.

heap: this is like one of those old 'Highlights' magazine kids puzzles, except you must circle the blatant falsehoods instead of circling the things a puppy would like.



I'm pretty sure they're the same thing. After all, both Republicans and puppies think that licking their own assholes is delicious.
