1) Devote Muslims kill homosexuals for being homosexual (fact). Yet, liberals support both the Homosexual agenda in America as well as Muslim Sharia
Law. What gives?
95% of the people I know are Liberals (I live in NYC) and I don't know a single one who supports Sharia law. Who's telling you that Liberals
support Sharia? They are idiots or liars.
2) Why are vocal black democrats given praise by the left (Sharpton, Jackson, Rangel, Shiela Jackson Lee, etc) while vocal black conservatives
(Clarence Thomas, Alan West, Herman Cain, etc) called names by the left?
Nobody likes Sharpton much, he's a bad guy (though when he's not being political he's an extremely witty guy), but they suffer him because he does
command votes. It's sad but true, I wish he would go away, it's just politics. Jackson has become something of a baffoon. Rangel is a purely
practical political animal. He's never been a vocal extremist at all. He's about as mainline party Democrat as they come. I was a big fan of the
guy for a long time (more as a political junkie and appreciative of his old-school rhetorical style than anything else), but his mini-scandals kind of
took the shine off him. Honestly know little to none about Shelia Jackson Lee.
As for the black Conservatives you mention: There is nothing and never has been anything "vocal" about Clarence Thomas. He's legendarily
non-vocal, probably the most silent Supreme Court Justice ever. He's spoken up less than half a dozen times while in session with the court. It's
sad such a terrible excuse for a justice sits in the same chair as the great Thurgood Marshall. Alan West is literally insane, I mean a total
wackadoo. That some on a Right can't see this, or actually agree with the guy is frankly terrifying. Herman Cain, good business man but has no idea
how to run a country.
Also, why do liberals continue to promote social programs that enslave blacks at poverty level? Left policies have NEVER led to black
prosperity (Chicago, Detroit, ALL of California, etc are good examples) yet they get the majority of the black vote. What does the left offer that
should inspire black Americans and keep their vote?
Let me ask you this, what programs have Conservatives promoted that are helpful to blacks? Most policies do things like suppress the black vote, draw
money away from education, take money away from programs to provide basic healthcare to the poor. They created a corporate owned jail systems whose
entire profit motive is based upon incarcerating as many people as possible for as long as possible, companies who have been caught bribing judges to
throw people in jail (most notably children in Pennsylvania) who are clearly innocent. Shall I go on...?
3) Liberals say they’re for women’s rights yet they destroyed Sarah Palin and her family in 2008. Liberals love Hillary but what did they
have to say about Condoleezza?? Have liberals ever denounced all of the chauvinist remarks about Bachman?
Sarah Palin was a joke of a candidate. She was not ready for the office of the Presidency, couldn't even name a single newspaper, much less ever
read one. She didn't know a thing about the basic history of World War II or that North and South Korea are different countries...she jumped into
the national political spotlight when she wasn't ready. Everyone who jumps into that arena should know anything they've ever done or said or will
say, any one they've ever been in the same room with becomes fair game for political attack (and don't tell me Conservatives didn't go after Obama
100 times harder). That she didn't seem to know this or expect it or understand this is just one more piece of evidence as to what an utter fool the
woman is. Such a person has no place withing 1000 miles of the White House, much less to be Vice President to a man who has suffered multiple bouts
of melanoma in the recent past. If he wanted a woman, McCain should have picked Kay Bailey Hutchenson or someone, you know, actually smart.
Rice is super smart, she was Provost of Stanford University, but she was at the center of the Bush II administration, so...
Bachman is a bit smarter than Palin, but much like West above, I think she's insane. I think her beliefs are insane and her husband is a sad,
severely repressed gay man who is living a lie to himself and his wife and who really needs to just be himself...be gay.
