That's nothing. I heard his father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate didn't make a new pot of coffee when he took the last cup

That's not news.  I'm sure many Tea Partiers are popular with Klansmen.

Hillary was a lawyer for a rapist so you wouldn't want to take any donations from her.

oh come on. who HASN'T taken money from Klansmen?

You can't really control who supports you.

I suppose he can return the contribution, but are we now required to audit every contribution and return those from anyone who might be considered objectionable?

"Don't think we want a nanny state," Ford added. "I'm too old and too fat to drink too much sody pop and still don't want nobody telling me how much to drink."

Not much of a scandal since everybody knows the Tea Party has a lock on old fat idiots.

Is money spent out of hatred for another group hate speech?

Of course not, but if someone tied to the KKK donated money to me, I'd return it or pass it on to the UNCF.

But, then again, I'm not a Republican.

Like ISIS to Al Qaeda, The TEA Party has been disavowed by the Klan for being too extreme.

Here in San Diego we had an actual Klansman run for Congress as a Democrat. Senator Robert Byrd, D-WV, was a Klansman. So, as The Simpsons might put it: "Not racist but #1 among racists."

To be fair, the "less taxis" guy was just farking around.

There are literally several dumb teabagger pics that are 'shooped or people who just showed up to make fun of them. Once you eliminate the fakes and jokers only about 106% of tea party members are racist and/or stupid.
 
2014-06-17 01:24:37 PM  
Only $800? Here are two theories:

1. The lawyer charged a $20,000 donation processing fee.

2. The lawyer carried through his threat of making a donation to cloud the client's name if the client didn't pay his bill.

I think this may be Thad Chochran;s camp's version of opposition research.  Not really clearly why he thinks highlighting his opponent's klan ties will HURT him in a GOP Primary in MS, but, I'm guessing it's all he's got

Dammit guys, don't bend the truth. Republcans are entirely capable of losing all on their own.

If you have to say something bad about them, the truth is entirely damaging enough.

This is the worst thing they have on the guy. That someone who donated to him once did work for a Klansman.

There have been more Robert Byrd references in the past two weeks than there have been in the past two years.  I'm waiting for the endless fake outrage threads about LBJ talking about his cock.

here's how a fark thread plays out with these, not racist conservative guys...

guy1: "the dems are the real racists!"

guy2: "if the members of the current democratic party were the real racists why do black people vote for democrats?"

guy1: "easy answer, it's because blacks love free stuff, the black needs the government to give them free things or the black can't make it in the free market that the white race can, the black longs for the national plantation that the democrats provide"

guy2: "lol, oh wow"

That can;t be right because the "reality" panel shows at least two black memebers of the tea party which is the stuff of fantasy

This is a big old nothingburger.  Now let's get back to the real issues like Hillary Clinton defending a client 40 years ago and the fact that Michelle Obama doesn't want kids to be obese.

As for TFA, who the fark cares? It's at least two degrees of separation. Hell, back when I waited tables, I bet I waited on a white supremacist dickbag at least once, and if he didn't tip me, then I took money from a White Supremacist.
