Everyone knows the "sending those people back to their to country" stance works well in America.

I thought "self-deportation" was way more stupid than racist.  If anything the 47% bit was getting more into racist territory.

In any event, "it's not the crime but the coverup" as they say.

in 2013 it is a crime for anyone to say the word "racist" out loud

I dunno, I can see it as racist. The whole premise behind "Self Deportation" is to encourage us to make the lives of foreigners so difficult that they want to deport themselves. So I mean even if it's not directly racist, it's certainly a racist concept as currently supported by the Republican party.

Priebus criticized Mitt Romney for using the term "self-deportation", calling it racist,  so that makes Priebus a racist too. Mmm, okay..

Oh, it's there.  But it just seems low on the racism scale compared to some other things that came up during Romney's campaign -- like his economic plan.

WTF am I reading?

Subby is either trying to mislead us or is in possession of some Weapons Grade Stupidity.  RP did not make "a racist comment," he was describing a term used by someone else as (in his opinion) as "racist."

The damned article doesn't mention anything about people getting sacked...
 
2013-08-19 09:54:35 AM
There should be quotation marks around "racist" in the headline. The issue is whether Priebus's quote contained the word "racist," not whether or not the quote itself was racist, right? I'm confused.

I guess he was planing on identifying them with some sort of special mark, maybe a plus sign.  It could be made of something flammable so that it could be seen at night.

You know who else first tried "self deportation"?
 
2013-08-19 11:14:26 AM
"Self deportation" was a radio joke that the GOP's top people, including their 2012 nominee and his staff were too farking clueless to realize was a joke. They heard a gag invented as satire by radio DJs and their reaction was "sounds legit!"

There is a reason conservatives are viewed as stereotypically stupid people, you know.

No, it confirms that he feels it was a racist statement therefore calling a significant number of GOP members racists since this is not all that unpopular in the party.

What is "self-deportation"?  Isn't that called moving to another country?
