But don't you dare try and suggest cutting aid to Israel.

Perhaps if we tried to negotiate the amount of aid we are giving down to a lower level?

A colleague off-camera then nudged Johnson about his anti-Semitic comment - ostensibly reminding him that he's not at home. "I apologize to the Jews," Johnson sarcastically apologized. "They're good small businessmen as well."

He's got to be related to the 'I meant no offense to the coloreds with my n*gger rigging comment' guy.  Either that, or they both use the same PR firm.

It is worth mentioning that no Jews currently serve in either house of the Oklahoma state legislature.

Remember this... from that perspective, Oklahoma might as well be another country.  Yes, we are making strides in national politics and in many states, but, in many state houses and local districts in states like this, I don't doubt these types of comments are going on all the time, because they know their constituants overwhelmingly feel the same way.   As has been mentioned before... the GOP might not "disappear", but, it is going to be a very local/regional party in about 6-10 years at the rate it is going.  They will have a hard time winning senate seats in all but about 15-20 states and dwindling, and we might not have a GOP president for a LONG time if they keep going at this rate.  Locally, as I stated, there will be many states that are majority GOP, and because of how you gerrymander your house districts, the GOP may be able to keep the house for longer than it really should.  But, in races that depend on the voting of a wider swath of the country, the GOP is on losing ground.

Its really unfair to label all Republicans as racists when its only like 75% of them that are racists.

James!: Captain, haven't you heard?  They're re-branding.  This is the new GOP for the new century.


This is a non-story.

In the 1990s, the Democrats shifted their rhetoric to be more appealing to Middle America.  They de-emphasized divisive figures like Jesse Jackson.  Jackson didn't stop saying divisive things, but Democrats were smart enough to distance him from the party.

Today, the GOP is contemplating a rhetorical shift towards the center.  This does not mean that extremists, cranks, and racists within the GOP will stop being divisive; only that the party will try to distance itself from them.

The only implications this has to the GOP's outreach program comes from their response.  If party officials double down and say "get over it, Christ killers" - that will be a problem.  If party officials tell this moron to shut up and apologize, this time sincerely - that will be progress.

I sincerely hope that this is true.

But when people like Ted Nugent are invited to the State of the Union address by Republicans, or prominent Republicans call people "wetbacks" and aren't kicked out of the party, it is hard to see that distancing.

I think they're not kicking Don Young out of the party because they expect natural causes will do that for them in a few years.  He's 80.

I will freely admit that they're starting to do a better job of distancing themselves from the cranks that make prejudiced comments like this guy, but they really aren't doing what I would call a good job. David Agema is still the RNC committeeman for Michigan. Pat Brady is still being targeted for removal as chair of the Illinois GOP. Don Young didn't get censured by the House.

That's it... Jews, blacks, women, native Americans, the disabled, gays, NEED NOT APPLY.

They did finally "officially" stop supporting Sanford although he's pretty much a lock for the seat anyway.

People like that sicken me to my stomach.

They're racist.  They assume racist viewpoints.  They use racist language.

Yet, when they act THEMSELVES in public, they pretend they are NOT racist with phrases like "they're good at small business as well".

Disgusting racist pig squeals real high and rolls in his hate shyat all happy until he realizes he's not on the farm no more.

The old adage of "if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem" is sometimes a bit of a logical fallacy, but in this case, it's a pretty accurate statement of the issue they face.

I don't disagree with you, but I think that what these areas with pockets of racism (like the Georgia school with segregated proms) need to be brought out into the national spotlight and made fun of and we can all point at the morons and laugh at how stupid they are. This might just cause people to have to figure out that "it's always been like that" or "that's just the way I was raised" doesn't cut it anymore.

Publicly humiliating people for ignorance and bigotry works. You won't ever eradicate it by trying to change people's innermost feelings, but when things like this are exposed and ridiculed, people then tend to keep them so well hidden that they don't affect the next generation so much. It becomes the exception rather than the norm.
