    Re: The GOP outreach strategy at it's best.

    Business Insider:

    The Washington Post's Richard Cohen wrote a bizarre column today in which he said "people with conventional views must repress a gag reflex when considering the mayor-elect of New York — a white man married to a black woman and with two biracial children." He added, "to cultural conservatives, this doesn’t look like their country at all."

    This was obviously offensive to interracial couples (how the hell did this passage make it through editing at the Post?) and Cohen is taking well-deserved heat for it. Somewhat lost in that discussion: Cohen was also unfair to "cultural conservatives" and the tea party, who seem to be way less hung up on interracial marriage than Cohen is.

    In July, Gallup found that 87% of Americans approve of interracial marriage, including 83% of those in the South and 70% of those aged 65 and older. Gallup didn't provide partisan or ideological breakdowns for their 2013 survey, but in 2011 they found that 78% of conservatives and 77% of Republicans approved of interracial marriage.

    Lots of racial and cultural issues continue to divide America regionally and ideologically. But interracial marriage is one that we have mostly gotten past. Except, apparently, for Richard Cohen.

    So much for so-called "conventional views", whatever those are.

    And good riddance.

    So 1 in 4 Republicans disapprove of inter-racial marriage.  But they're not racist.

    14% of Easterners disapprove of interracial marriage! Who would want to live in such a racist region? And 12% of Democrats in 2011 disapproved ! Let's smear every group,  why dont we?

    Fun with polls!

    How about this poll?

    According to a 2012 Gallup poll that asked participants if they have a positive or negative image of socialism, 53 percent of Democrats and “leaning democrats” said they have a positive image about socialism.

    53 percent of Democrats want to live in Venezuela, where the military can and recently did take over an appliance store and cut the price of washing machines in half...

    the democrat party is a party of socialism, and that's the unvarnished truth.

    In response to A_Concerned_Citizen's comment:

    Here's Cohen (emphasis added):

    Today’s GOP is not racist, as  Harry Belafonte alleged about the tea party, but it is deeply troubled — about the expansion of government, about immigration, about secularism, about the mainstreaming of what used to be the avant-garde. People with conventional views must repress a gag reflex when considering the mayor-elect of New York — a white man married to a black woman and with two biracial children. (Should I mention that Bill de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, used to be a lesbian?) This family represents the cultural changes that have enveloped parts — but not all — of America. To cultural conservatives, this doesn’t look like their country at all.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    For the record, there's nothing conventional about gagging at interracial marriage:
    1384269782



    Hey, wait a minute.  Are you trying to tell us that Bill deBlasio's a lesbian?

    Cohen:

    "(Should I mention that Bill de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, used to be a lesbian?)"

    Weird, that the liberal doofus Cohen said this.... 

    Many men who '"used to be gay", i.e., formerly led a gay lifestyle,  have totally changed to hetero,  based often on a religious awakening. The progressive view is that this is impossible, there is never a choice in the matter in any instance! A person is gay based on DNA , per the liberal PC police...an "inherent characteristic"..

    So God bless the new mayor's wife, no matter what she wants to do ...but isnt it contrary to the liberal world view to be a "former lesbian"?

    So what you are saying is that the overwhelming majority of neo-cons are ignorant of reality as well as lack a basic understanding of political systems. Interesting.

     

    Kinda funny considering that Palin was the wingnuts choice for VP yet as governor of AK not only relied on, but expanded the socialist system that state relies on.

    How can you tell people are ignorant of reality? Just ask their views on programs like Medicare.

    A January survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health found that 68 percent of respondents thought the country’s budgetary problems could be addressed without reductions in Medicare, while 28 percent thought reductions in Medicare should be a part of the discussion about reducing the federal deficit. An Ipsos Public Affairs poll similarly found that only 23 percent of those surveyed would be willing to cut back on Medicare benefits. When faced with the prospect of having to change spending on one of three areas of the budget, 21 percent of respondents in a January 2011 poll by New York Times and CBS News chose Medicare, while 13 percent chose Social Security and 55 percent chose military spending.

    Most recently, the Pew Research Center found that although the percentage of Americans who want increased spending on Medicare has fallen 13 percent since 2009, those who want increased spending (40 percent) still vastly outnumber those who want decreased spending (12 percent).


    It's obvious that these neo-con nitwits ignorantly cling to their "Keep gov't out of my Medicare" mantra while oblivious to reality.

    So ya, people say they don't like socialism but they love socialism when it affects them.



    Sorry, we all can't love socialism as much as you do.  You worship the State as your God, and are nasty and bitter toward any who want to limit its power; sad, really.

    Your usual peculiarly warped view of "hypocrisy" is that if a Republican like Gov Palin takes pretty much any action as a Governor, that is "expanding the socialist system"...  so she should as a conservative have closed down the state government? Another way to state the same issue:

    if Palin’s time as Alaska’s governor were accurately chronicled, she just might be seen as — get this — a moderate!

    Ideological ignorance is a beautiful thing for the neo-con nitwits who cling to their Medicare.

    Ain't this country great ... "free market" Medicare ... who'da thunk it.

    Right up there with the whackjob wingnut "free market" farm bill to pay people not to work. But I'm sure you're just full of excuses for that as well, eh spanky.

    The saddest thing in the world is a grown person who refuses to confront the reality of their own choices, in this case having their nose stuck in an unnatural location of their political party leaders. They keep 'trickling down' on your head and you keep calling them 'job creators' and 'patriots'. Sad indeed.

    Ignorance is bliss CLC and you are a very, very VERY happy person. Congrats.

     

    As for the Palin thingy .... why can't you bring yourself to condemn her for expanding the bribes paid by oil companies to work in AK? Is it just too much bear ... the former flag bearer of your party exploiting that oh-so 'free market' principal of payoffs and taxes.

    Why would a the conservative frontier feel the need to pay people just to live there?

    Is that what wingnuts need to do to win hearts and minds? Bribes and payoffs.

     

    HILARIOUS

    Do you even know how absurd you sound when you toss around the 'socialist' canard?

    We have democratically elected government that enacts programs for the common social welfare.  Social democracy coupled with regulated capitalism is the only sane way to live.

    What is threatening the U.S. today isn't "socialism"; it is proud ignorance like yours.

    Glad to see you agree that the modern welfare state collects Democratic votes,  from the 'takers' who love socialism. The more recipients, the more votes.
