Oh look. Its the "liberals are the real racists for thinking racism still exists" thread for the day.

Easy solution: Don't act like racist douchenozzles and we won't have this problem. Okay?

After a brisk jog, conservative tears have what it takes to keep my electrolytes high.
 
2014-05-01 08:45:02 AM  
I don't get it. This particular douchenozzle is rich, but he doesn't (apparently) contribute to Republicans or champion any "conservative" causes besides racism. Why are the Right Wingers rushing to his defense?

Hard to believe that even they love racism that much. They never do anything as a group that's not part of a larger agenda.
 
2014-05-01 08:48:14 AM  
Maybe it's an environment that makes it easier for us to call out actual racism?

It's not that they love racism, per se. What they must defend though is the ability to be racist without repercussions. The large percentage of their base that is racist sort of demand it.

It is nice to see Republicans haven't given up on their miserable failure of an attempt to make it difficult to call people out for their racist remarks. Keep up the good fight, imbeciles. Just remember that it has been 50 years since the CRA; while you can now go and disenfranchise people again, society isn't going to put up with you spewing your racist shiat openly.
 
2014-05-01 09:12:02 AM  
I'm pretty sure a GIS for 'racist Obama posters ' could bring up a few hundred examples of  actual racism. Literally.

Someone forgot about the booming conservative butthurt industry.
 
2014-05-01 09:14:26 AM  
I was talking with a guy the other week who insisted the tea party wasn't racist. He knew, because he was a member of the tea parry and he wasn't racist. Also, many people he associated with were members of the tea party and weren't racist.

Later on he wondered if blacks were better off because of slavery. As proof, he compared the wonderful life blacks have in modern America to the horrible lives blacks have in modern Africa. Obviously, slavery was good for them because it gave their descendants the opportunity to grow up in america.

But apparently I'm the racist for thinking that this is racism.
 
2014-05-01 09:14:57 AM  
Because there's nothing to be worried about that voter suppression got supported by the conservative SCOTUS.

And that a black woman got 20 years for firing a warning shot in the same state that a guy walked for actual killing.

Is there a minimum daily requirement for this now?  Because I'm pretty sure we're exceeding it, whatever it is.

liberal progressives would have you believe we're just as racist a nation as we were when "separate but equal" was the law of the land.


now that you have established that as fact in your echo chamber you can write a whole editorial about it!

To wage the ongoing "culture war" the Right in this country has fought for 40 years, you have to vilify someone.  You have to have targets to hate.

They're not defending racism, they're protecting their system of control

What fascists?

Should we be super nice to the bigots and racists and generally terrible people because they go to your church of conservative ideology or something? Are you dumb enough to think that freedom of speech means freedom from consequences of that speech?

As much as I don't like to give any fuel to the people who think the shiat that Bundy and Sterling said isn't racist, I think there has been far to much conflation of race and culture/beliefs in society today. You can get called a racist for criticizing religious and cultural practices, and those are never innate characteristics of race. People deserve respect and dignity, ideas don't.
 
2014-05-01 09:34:53 AM  
There's shiat tons of real racism, and it wouldn't exist without a protective layer of right-wing blubber that surrounds and protects it.

As always, let us never forget the real victims in all this. Conservative males.

Dear Heavenly Reagan, we beseach that you comfort our doughy, pasty, impotent brethren. May your healing hand soothe their perpetual butthurt, may their resolve become stronger when they disrobe, and women just point and laugh. May your divine countenance extend down to their gritted teeth, sore from suppressing their desire to express their racism in public, a calling back to "simpler times." May your calming spirit break through their confusion as to why people just can't remember their place.

Saint Reagan, peace be unto him, hear our prayers.

Racism is the lynchpin of their electoral strategy.

Are you rich? Republicans will defend you from the brown moochers who want to take your stuff.

Are you poor? Republicans will fight back against the affirmative action policies that keep you down.

Worried about crime? Republicans will lock up as many of those thugs as they can and give you the legal right to shoot the rest.

Own a small business? Republicans will let you discriminate against anyone you want.

But when a wannabe domestic terrorist calls a press conference to talk about what he knows about Negroes, and the owner of a professional sports franchise tells people not to bring black people to his team's games, that's fair game if someone shines a light on them.

And by the way, people don't deserve respect and dignity. People earn respect and dignity.

To be fair, firing a warning shot is a goddamn stupid thing to do, and you should not be discharging a gun (outside of a firing range) unless you actually intend to kill something.  But at the same time, you're right, it being in the same state where a man walked for shooting an unarmed teenager says a lot.
