    " However, I am in curious exactly what you think Palin is responsible for.  The shooting?" She's responsible for validating the fringe nutbags who consider using violence as a solution of some kind.  Her use of "blood libel" shows that she's OK with this kind of rhetoric.  If she were a leader, like she purports to be, she'd be trying to help calm the citizenry, not enflaming it by bringing up a whole new dimension of violence through her carefully considered use of "blood libel." I think she's looking to get rich, like Limbaugh, Beck, Malkin and the rest, and doesn't care who gets hurt, or what principles get stomped, in the meantime.

    "She's responsible for validating the fringe nutbags who consider using violence as a solution of some kind."

    HOW????  More rhetoric, no examples.  You can'[t come up with examples, becasue they don't exist.  you don't even get her point on blood libel.  Here's what Alan Derhiwitz has to say on the matter, a liberal with credibility:

    "The term “blood libel” has taken on a broad metaphorical meaning in public discourse. Although its historical origins were in theologically based false accusations against the Jews and the Jewish People,its current usage is far broader. I myself have used it to describe false accusations against the State of Israel by the Goldstone Report. There is nothing improper and certainly nothing anti-Semitic in Sarah Palin using the term to characterize what she reasonably believes are false accusations that her words or images may have caused a mentally disturbed individual to kill and maim. The fact that two of the victims are Jewish is utterly irrelevant to the propriety of using this widely used term."


    Face it, you are caught up not in facts, but hate.  you don't even pretend to have facts.

    In Response to Re: The Tea Party Terrorists : Don't confuse it with the "no one said all" BS. That has ALWAYS been implied! Look at Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton etc. If you are against their racist BS you MUST be a racist and that has been the Dem. playbook for most of my life! It was Matty's and Rham Emanuel's favorite Saul Alinsky. He was the origin of Rahm's favorite saying "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

    When you speak in absolutes ("all" dems do this...) it is in fat not implied that it is not an absolute ("some" dems do this...).  Speak what you mean. 

    Remember Jackson and Sharpton have never actually been elected to anything.  They speak for only a small group in the Democratic coalition.

    The events in Arizona notwithstanding, the fact remains that the Tea Party is little more than a bunch of disgruntled, middle-aged white people who are mad as hell that a black man was elected president. These people would like to take this country back to the pre-civil rights era, when Jim Crow ruled the South. They are nothing more than the KKK minus the white robes and burning crosses.

    Sorry Reuben. When you have to make multiple qualifiers in a debate you have lost! So it has to be an elected Democrat?
    “Racism is the ability to take your discrimination based on race and turn it into public policy,” State Sen. Kevin Parker told WWRL radio in New York City. “There’s only one kind of racism that’s functional in the world, and that’s white supremacy. And that’s what . . . a lot of the Republicans are
    Or...

     

    A Tennessee House Democratic leader is drawing fire from Republicans for charging that some of President Obama's conservative critics in Tennessee are motivated by racism.

    Rep. Mike Turner of Nashville, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, made his remarks at a news conference Monday.
    Asked to elaborate afterward, Turner said, “I think some of the people who are against Obama are just against Obama because he’s African-American.”

    So you have a couple poltiicans.  You still don't have "all".  Hyperbole is not helpful.  Focusing on the fringe and labeling it mainstream is an ongoing problem with BOTH parties. 

    And don't you think like Turner said that SOME of the opposition to Obama is based in race?

    Do remind me how the anti-gay laws in the military were revoked.  Who were the leading Republicans for this effort?  All but 8 Republicans opposed it in the Senate.  All but 5 (!) Republicans voted against it in the House.  It of course was signed by a Democratic president. Obviously if the Dems stay away from civil rights they simply wont happen. 

    The Democrats may not have a perfect civil rights record, but the Republicans have a simply dreadful one.  Odd that you have no time to bemoan this central fact in your own movement.  Look to those around you.  It can be pretty ugly.

    Come on Reuben! You do it regularly here! Those of us against illegals are racist. You have done it several times! That is the THE card for Dems.
    Hyperbole? Maybe a VERY little but every time it seems D's pull out the race card and the R's pull out the Patriot card.
    I think there is @2% in BOTH parties who are against Obama because he is black. The rest of us are against him because we disagree with his ideas and vision of America. BUT when we say it we are immediately labeled racists. I have been there done that my whole life because of my beliefs and where I was born!

    Funny how 2 Democrat Presidents signed DADT and The Uniform Code of Military Justice that established the policy and process for discharging homosexuals from the military.
    Also you may want to look at which party tried to stop the civil rights act of 1964...
    The most fervent opposition to the bill came from Senator Strom Thurmond (D-SC): "This so-called Civil Rights Proposals, which the President has sent to Capitol Hill for enactment into law, are unconstitutional, unnecessary unwise and extend beyond the realm of reason. This is the worst civil-rights package ever presented to the Congress and is reminiscent of the Reconstruction proposals and actions of the radical Republican Congress."
    On the morning of June 10, 1964, Senator Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) completed a filibustering address that he had begun 14 hours and 13 minutes earlier opposing the legislation


    The vote by party...

    The original House version:[12]

    • Democratic Party: 152-96   (61%-39%)
    • Republican Party: 138-34   (80%-20%)

    Cloture in the Senate:[13]

    • Democratic Party: 44-23   (66%–34%)
    • Republican Party: 27-6   (82%–18%)

    The Senate version:[12]

    • Democratic Party: 46-21   (69%–31%)
    • Republican Party: 27-6   (82%–18%)

    The Senate version, voted on by the House:[12]

    • Democratic Party: 153-91   (63%–37%)
    • Republican Party: 136-35   (80%–20%)

    I've heard this guy, and when he talks, it sounds like he's reading text prepared by Fox News. In the pre-Civil War era, he would have been referred to as a 'house slave.'

    Thanks for the history lesson. But I am talking about today not fifty years ago.  As you know, the Democrats had a lot of hardline southern conservatives in their coalition back then.  Their descendants are now all in the G.O.P.  Obviously by the recent vote on DADT the G.O.P. has little use for new civil rights legislation.  Indeed they are actively against it. For a party that is supposed to be a supporter of the rights of the individual they do a lousy job when push comes to shove.  Those social conservatives set the tone and drag the rest of the party with them.

    Want to explain why the G.O.P. voted overwhelmingly to keep DADT?  Want to find fault with that effort or is just Democrats that you criticize?  At least Democrats try to make things better.  The G.O.P. either does not care or they looking to roll back the laws on civil rights. And I am talking about NOW not in some bygone era.

    Make things better?  It would seem to me that, while the intention might be to make things better, the Democrats in this case might conceivably make things worse for some.  

    Oh, and history means something...and it's an insult to civil rights for you to diminish what the government did 50 years ago.

    I did not diminish what was done several generations ago.  But we are focusing on where the parties are now.  The G.O.P. has drummed out virtually all their social liberals and have become a group that opposes virtually all civil rights initiatives. The Democrats still try to make a push in this regard.  DADT was a shameful result for the G.O.P.: despite the repeal being supported by the military's top brass and most of the rank and file, the Republicans went the anti-gay social conservative route.
