FDR has been dead for 70 years, what's the relevance to the topic of modern American Conservatism? Wilson and LBJ were bigots too, again what would be the relevance? The OP is discussing living politicians who currently hold office.

Seems like you can't really argue with the OP's premise so you're deflecting?


Because the internment of the Japanese was brought up by the author of the article as an example of racist conservatives. He or she is the one who brought it up--I was just correcting him or her. The hit piece's author should do his homework before putting something stupid to paper.

Making blanket statements about an entire group and espousing slanderous terms toward them is bigoted.....

Then attack the author of the article. No need to attack me.

If you don't agree with the way in which much of America sees you all, then state your case, and then sit down.
I'd be delighted to know how you see yourself as opposed to how you are portrayed to millions of readers on a daily basis. You want to change it? What will you do about it? (Aside from trying to make me shut up, of course...cuz you can't....neener neener neener)



Jesus, people!! Can't we just talk about the article?!!!!!!!!

No YOU posted the article then go on to agree with whats being said in it

You are the OP of THIS thread

So of course were going to challenge you!

Lol what a ridiculous notion to come on here and post something and make accusations and then deflect to someone else....

Typical




If you don't agree with the way in which much of America sees you all, then state your case, and then sit down.



Seems like people like you would LOVE for us to just sit down and shut up, you know in the name of tolerance......

Again no, most of America doesnt see us that way, only uninformed, antagonistic , intolerant progressives such as yourself do....and trust me youre NOT a majority

"Much of America" meaning about the same number of people who DON'T see conservatives this way. Y'know, since both main parties have roughly 40% of the population identifying with them.

The ACA is an awful and cumbersome piece of legislation that is increasing the cost and regulatory burden of medicine and some people like it because they think it's giving them free stuff. The SCOTUS' decision was aweful and required Robert's re-defining language in the law to shoe-horn it into acceptance. Rather than doing what they were supposed to do, using the merits of the law as written and making their decision based on that, they had play language games, kind of like Bill Clinton and his whole "depends on what you mean by "is" issue form his lawsuit.

So you create a threat entitled, "The Casual, Idiotic Racism of Modern American Conservatism," and then say that addressing the racism accusation is off topic?

I DID NOT CHOOSE THE TITLE.

It is the title of the article.

Sheesh.

Oh, no you don't.

Considering you said this:


I posted the article. I agree with it.


Previously in the thread. You own it as much as the author of the piece does.

The Squeaky Wheel get the grease?

Amazing how social media and the internet has made that statement so true, even though the majority pretty much tries to survive and not pay attention to political nonsense?

The title of the article is a great example of how quickly a liberal has to resort to name calling when trying to rant.

Y'know, since we're making blanket statements and all.

Or repeating over and over and over again the same old tired worn out mantras they used during Obama's run for President....

I'm so glad this thread is being made. Conservatives are such racists and bigots and they are basically dumb and evil and they probably smell bad.

Not like the wonderful progressive liberals who are sunshine and smell like unicorns and flowers and are all wise and all-knowing.

YAY!

Actually, if you look it up, it's only about 24% with conservatives remaining at about 38%.

So of course were going to challenge you!

Good Gawd.

You're going to challenge me because of an article title?

The article is what it is.
The part I wanted to discuss is Cruz's ignorance of what a 'worst 24-hour period' entails.
But, okay.

Carry on. If he's wrong, and I'm wrong, then defend yourselves. Don't attack me. Tell me how wrong he is. Tell me how it really is.

But I'm not in the mood to fight right now. So - you all carry on. It is a topic for debate, that is all.

My numbers are from a poll conducted October of 2014, and include those who identified as "leaners" as opposed to solidly one party or the other. The numbers changed to 41% dem and 42% rep after the elections last year.

If you've got something more current, then by all means...

Wait, that went back to being "a day?" I thought it was still supposed to be a "whenever found, targets of opportunity" thing still?

PS - not a conservative, they just have better holidays.
