Conservatives aren't racist, but there is a problem

Kendall says most conservatives aren’t racist. That’s true, in my experience. Almost all my friends are conservative. I have some friends who express racist attitudes, but those same friends don’t espouse small-government conservative principles. I do see a problem with the conservative media. In their eagerness to advance their cause, they often don’t use wisdom when they promote someone. Case in point: Cliven Bundy.

I agree with you, Tiredofit, when you say that "demonize" and "destroy" are tactics employed by "deranged" minds.

Punishing people for what they say, privately, and "hate crime" levels of punishment show the depths of the new racism of Amrica. Instead of becoming color blind, color is now the center of our media and government. Actions should be punished, not feelings and words.

"So you said it but then you never said it, which is it exactly"

You are mistaken. You seem to have difficulty in intent, sarcasm and political reality.

Did I write that? Yes...never denied I did.

Did I write it in relationship to the media/politics and how they treat racism. Yep.

Do I believe it? No. Nearly anything can be forgiven. There a few situations that cannot but they are not part of this discussion.

Oy vey Tired, don't you understand sarcasm at any level? We are talking politics here. Do you really know anyone who is put out there by any political party like the Right did Bundy who has ever said such a racist comment as his that was forgiven?

Though it shouldn't matter, try to focus on racism that isn't directed toward European Americans.

Also, all your Farakhan examples don't mean squat because the Dems never EVER placed him on a pedestal.

"the drama is yours kid"

Now we begin with the insults and the superiority complex you seem to have. You always do that when you are losing an argument.

"SO MAKING A RACIST COMENT IS UNFORGIVABLE REALLY?"

Lol...save the drama. In the world of politics, racist comments are usually unforgivable but I'll add that they can be ignored which has happened many time in the past.

"You think you decide what is unforgivable Kendall?"

Nope, never said I did but perhaps MSNBC and Fox did because they pretty much dropped on Bundy equally after the whole racist thing.

"Hmmmm funny how civil disobedience is acceptable if it's MLK"

It must not have been since at the time he was arrested many times.

"MLK or some black pathers at a polling place"

You are comparing MLK with the Black Panthers?

"but anyone who challenges the govt is an enemy of socialist progressives."

Bundy has been challenging them for years and the Feds finally got sick of him not paying the fees he knew he was suppose to pay.

Though it comes from a reuter's blog...this blog had some interesting pics and info with it. Only someone with their head in the sand would think there wasn't any potential illegal activities going on in relation to what was going on with the Bundy situation.

" You accuse this man of crimes that may or may not be guilty of without trial?"

So you must have missed that "sniper" on the bridge when the Feds were confronting Bundy. Yes, whether he meant to or not, Bundy encouraged certain crack pot elements in our society to act stupidly.

"The left certainly raised up Sandra Flucke and made her their idol queen."

They did? Well, at least she didn't fail them by doing something utterly unforgivable like making a racist comment that had nothing to do with her position on birth control.

Anyone labeling Bundy and his gunsels "patriots" seriously lacks good judgment.

Cliven Bundy doesn't need his racial views to convince us of his lawless nature. He's refused to pay lawful, but modest, fees for using our land, like responsible ranchers. He's defied court orders. He's allowed, maybe even encouraged, supporters to brandish arms at our law enforcement officers. He's declared himself exempt from our laws. No, he doesn't need racism to show us who he is.

Posted 486 days ago.

The left certainly raised up Sandra Flucke and made her their idol queen.

But the left has trouble finding average hard working Americans to use for influencing the public. Not too many of us admire the money sucking leeches promoted by the democrats. Americans mostly don't like socialist ideas. That is why liberal talk radio fails, and MSNBC stays in the bottom of the rating tank along with CNN.

" I have corrected the record,.."

No you haven't. The only thing you have shown is that there are those on the Left that have racist views. That is all you have done.

"Now we begin with the insults and the superiority complex you seem to have."

I have done nothing you have not done. Lol, your whole "epic fail" and calling one "deluded" stuff is the very heart of having a superiority complex" and insults young one. I am sorry if you are not young, your attitude on here makes me think you are.

"You always do.."

There are no absolutes in debate. I don't always do anything anymore than you always doing something.

Wrangling this back to the topic a bit more.

I feel the Right has the habit of raising up certain everyday individuals that come to represent an idea before they know enough about them. In no way am I saying it doesn't happen on the Left but not in recent years to the same level or intensity that the Right does.

Does Bundy have a legit argument about not paying the Fed govt it's fees? Perhaps. Did his racial views have anything to do with it? Nope, not unless he was projecting his racial views onto the Feds because of Obama being the head of it, but that hasn't been confirmed.

Did the Right know enough about Bundy before all the attention he got? I think the obvious answer is no or they wouldn't had anything to do with him.

I do not think that Bundy represents the Right because I know the Right isn't racist anymore than the Left is. Personally I just wished that the Right had the ability to distance themselves from questionable people as the Left seems to be able to do.

"Not your best effort"

I was aiming at your level of intellect. Guess it worked.

Now then dear child, in the adult world of debate...it is up to you to cite such things. Otherwise you are just being intellectually lazy.

I won't do your homework for you. Now if you want to claim there was some kind of support that equates to the support Bundy got, please feel free to cite them.

"One of [the] people reportedly responsible.."

So, you don't know for sure if they were responsible?
