And I think someone missed it.
WASHINGTON -- Despite recent accusations of racism and homophobia, Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) stuck to his libertarian principles on Sunday, criticizing the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 because it "undermine[d] the concept of liberty" and "destroyed the principle of private property and private choices."
Although Paul was not around to weigh in on the landmark legislation at the time, he had the chance to cast a symbolic vote against it in 2004, when the House of Representatives took up a resolution "recognizing and honoring the 40th anniversary of congressional passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964." Paul was the only member who voted "no."
I picked up your sarcasm.
However, the title should read: Ignorant Republicans are racist.
And there are more of them than intelligent ones. So yes, republicans are racist.
What exactly is the point of this thread?
Ya, we get it Sarcasm, or pointing out the Obvious.

Obviously it’s to point out the hypocrisy of the left.
The American Left consists of individuals and groups, including socialists, communists and anarchists, that have sought fundamental change in the economic, political and cultural institutions of the United States. Although left-wing ideologies came to the United States in the 19th century, there are no major left-wing political parties in the US. As a result, Americans frequently use the term "left-wing" to refer to radicalism or even liberalism.  Buhle, Buhle and Georgakas, p. ix
That was my sarcasm, teabag.
I know what his point is. It's to make him feel good that he has supporting evidence to offset the actual truth of the matter. And that truth is that a larger republican portion than not are racist against our black president even if they cannot admit it. I say this because I am from the south and I hear it from the cats mouth.
I bet you're going to tell me that Israeli Jews aren't racist to Arabs now.
