My mouth just fell open when I read your post.
Are you freaking KIDDING ME??
Unbelievable. I can't believe your post hasn't been removed for ill-mannered political trolling. :shk:
I didn't 'appeal to MODS' - I could have, but refrained. I still think that the member's post was atrocious.
And, I have to say that your two image inserts were offensive toward the Progressive party - and the idea that they are racist is just wrong. If it's wrong, it's wrong.
Slayer's OP is actually accurate. But people sure do get their panties in a twist about these stupid 'definitions'.
Either people are racist, or they are NOT racist.
Progressives are NOT racist, and neither are today's liberals. And no amount of clever memes will change that.
The parties switched sides about 40 years ago.
And seeing as how you are decidedly NOT a "Progressive", while I AM, it seems you have some warped ideas of what it stands for. I'm trying to stop the accusation that liberals and progressives are racist, money-grubbing commies trying to rob people of their freedoms and their wealth and their guns.
It just simply isn't true. *sigh*
Every time Obama is accused of something or his failures pointed out they throw the race card! It’s as obvious as it is ridiculous. I’m sorry you can’t see it.
I DO see it. Last night I started a thread about how disappointing Obama has turned out to be, and I don't give a gnat's lunch what his 'racial background' is.
He is not "representin' " for real. He's duplicitous, and a liar, and I am now aware of it. Rhetoric is one thing. Actions are another.
He's a traitor.
But yes, you're right that maybe it's not true for me and my 'friends' but it might be true for people who ARE racist and hide behind political agendas and 'throw the race card around.'
ANyway, I probably should seriously stop my participation in this thread.
You cannot be serious about the quality of this article? It strikes me as a political hack job of conservatives.
But for future reference....hateful attitudes ala Rush won't win elections. Most Americans are centrist and shy away from the ultra right as well as the wacko left. Who is the most extreme? Listen to the radio....
offensive toward the Progressive party
