The system is nationwide I wouldn't say conservatives nor liberals would have any solutions to this. The disparities may vary from different states tho but then you have to take in pop. Density and a bunch of other things including their laws.


So you have no solutions but to foment more divide by labeling conservatives as racist.

If I were of a conspiratorial mind, I'd say that you would desire a racial divide and would encourage racial division.

But that's only if I had a conspiratorial mind.


c'mon beezer...according to you, everybody on here is "fomenting divide", regardless of what position they take...is that your point?...please elucidate to us your own profound solution.


Are you labeling conservatives as racist?

Do you have any solutions?

Mine are simple. We shouldn't encourage self-segregation. We should foster equality in everything. Affirmative action only hurts and divides us.


What is your leftist progressive solution?


all or most conservatives are not racists...affirmative action was created due to inequality....my solution is generational, young people must have the courage to stand up and refuse to believe in their own relatives and friends, bigoted and racists ways.

You do know that the word progressive is the new cool conservative word, calling people commies didn't work anymore.

Op is missing a few bolts


Not really actually. Read your history. There was a Communist Party here in the States but they didn't do to well in elections overall. So they then adopted the term, "Progressive", but that didn't fly very well either at which point they took over the term "Liberal" which was just right. (Kind of like porridge! LOL) All this happened in the 20th century.

Now they are showing their true colors again and calling themselves Progressives. Even Hillary has said such and it is well documented.

Calling BS! I have seen many Democrats referring to their party as Progressive! Blaming Conservative for using the term Progressive?

Ever hear of "Progressive Democrats of America? Of course not, but blame it on Conservatives I guess......

This is just another left-wing propaganda thread. Pair it up with one of the right-wing ones, and you've got a lovely picture of what the real problem is in the U.S.; ignorant people.

Pathetic, really.

So you don't believe shows like Glenn beck and Sean Hannity foment racism?


No. No reasonable person does.


Funny. No true Scotsmen believe it either I guess? :-)

This is an opinion piece, so - of course it proves nothing:
I lost my dad to Fox News: How a generation was captured by thrashing hysteria

The thing of it is, I experienced something just like this with several different family members and a couple of friends

Yes (gasp) I have conservative friends :-)

Thing of it is - I can remember a time when we could all sit around a table (even after a few beers) and have a heated but reasonable discussion about politics and world events. We could even have a few laughs over the whole thing - no real animosity. After a while, Fox, Limbaugh and the rest of the usual suspects slowly became all they would listen to. I mean it - nothing else was permitted into their world view. It became absolutely impossible to even have a simple chat

It was shut up, fight or die after that

The part of it that bothered me the most was - 2 of these people now believe things they previously thought were either crazy or wrong. One of these people was a newsman. It was as if in order to entertain any of it and keep it afloat in their heads - they now had to believe in all of it. I guess because if you start to question any of it - it all begins to fall apart

Worst part is how angry they've become. Furious - there's absolutely no middle ground on topics where there clearly is plenty of middle ground

It's hard for me to explain how much that hurts - and how nonsensical it is. It's crazy. Honestly - it's like they're zombies

So, I disagree Navy. They foment racism - and much more. It's propaganda 101 and Americans aren't immune

If you want to argue that the liberals are just as bad - have at it. I won't argue. It's why I think that if you're going to follow the news you should always have more than one source - even if some of those sources are not your first choice and they make you feel a little uncomfortable

here,..navy doc...sean Hannity....fair.org...
and...glen beck...newsone.com...

so you must agree with both Hannity and Beck, since you proclaim you are a "reasonable" person


Oh no! Leftist blog calls a conservative talk show host "racist!" Stop the presses--that's never been done before.

You are oh so uneducated in this sense. Please, think for yourself.



Not saying there aren't right wing moderates but there is a sprectrum. On the left you have communism and on the right you have fascism.


They are BOTH SOCIALIST causes! Nothing much separates them at all if you actually read up on both ideologies. Different names, same cause. Both evil.


Thanks for correcting that post! Here's a some educational material for those interested, the cow one is funny.

Both sides are using emotion to foment unrest. To the average viewer/listener, that's exciting and illicits a fight response.

But at some point, if some power structure, whether right or left takes a stand on what you disagree with, the it is a persons responsibility to push back.

I proved it was BS! Why are you blaming Conservatives for using a term some Democrats have already adopted?

Your just being silly now! I proved your statement wrong, so your grasping at straws instead of just admitting your wrong!

Continue...........

Certainly I agree that one should get their info from a variety of sources--heck, this is why a lot of us are here. However, that fanatacism you describe is found on both sides of the issue. I have relatives that have called me a "Babykiller" and only listen to Rachel Maddiw.

How is it that when Conservatives use the term "Progressive" it's putting down those who admit they are "Progressives"?

Your just showing that you don't have the integrity to admit you said something the was not true, and you don't have the cajones to admit your statement was without factual evidence! Yet your word means what?

Keep digging.......

Wow, if you need me to hold your hand and teach use how the left and the right use words to make the other side look foolish, i wouldn't know where to start.

Commie dosent work anymore in 2015 to bash the left, go back less than a year to see when they started using it.

Keep your bash up it just proves my point.

Yeah - covered that. And, what's wrong with Rachel Maddow? :-)

I know it happens. You said no reasonable person believes that certain individuals and/or news sites can foment racism - but this is not my experience, and it's not yours either

It is absolutely just as bad on the left - even if it doesn't always manifest in the same ways. I'm friends with a leftist couple that live in exactly the same kind of insulated world as I was talking about in the last post. No middle ground - no room for discussion. They read mostly - books - little or no television

Trying to be objective is hard work - and even when we think we're trying it only feels like we're trying

It's what we experience here at ATS every single day. You can see our country, other countries and the whole world duking it out right in front of our eyes. Culture wars. Hearts and minds won - and lost

Love it :-)
