“Racist”

Who would have thought that the word “racist” would be so misused and overused, that’s it’s lost its meaning in our society?

It used to be a serious allegation with serious consequences. Now it’s hard for people to keep a straight face when they hear the accusation.

The leftist is anti-individualistic, pro-collectivist. He wants society to solve everyone’s problems for them, satisfy everyone’s needs for them, take care of them.

No, they want to rule. Think of the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt, who owned all property. people and produce in the land. The Pharaoh controled all the grain, and doled it out according to his "generosity." All socialist systems are just a variation on this model - the State owns all, and people are provided with "needs" as the leaders see fit. A more modern example is Saddam Hussein, who did not permit autonomous Kurdish villages. Any self supporting Kurd town would see Saddam's troops come in, bulldoze the fields and fill in the wells. Saddam had to be sure the Kurds were dependent on his "generosity" for their survival, so self reliance was not tolerated.

Leftists are neither "liberal" nor "progressive. "Liberal" means pro freedom and "progressive" means moving positively ahead. Leftist are actually Statists who wish to restrict individual freedom to the will of the government, and Collectivists who wish to regress to failed policies of 19th and early 20th century Socialism.

I agree that this is a good analogy for how leftists maintain power.

Do you guys think these people were racist ?






Was Reagan's recently discovered comment to Nixon racist ?


"Last night, I tell you, to watch that thing on television, as I did, to see those, those monkeys from those African countries — damn them — they’re still uncomfortable wearing shoes!” Reagan said on the call."



Is it really that racism is losing it's meaning ? OR is it that a significant part of the country is getting in touch with their racism and what they like about Trump is that he lets them feel okay about it.

Am I asking for too much honesty here ?

You had to go back nearly 40 years to the Reagan error to find material to say Trump supporters are racist today. How on earth did Obama get elected?

That's not what I did at all. I'm asking a question based specifically on what I see in this thread, about how racism is losing it's meaning and I'm asking a question. Does that photo (if it's real), depict racism ?

Does the Reagan quote reflect racism ?


I feel like these are really simple questions. I'm just curious to hear your answer. Are those questions just too damn difficult ?

IT's an historical fact that the KKK publicly supported Reagan. Reagan had to publicly say that he didn't want their support.

That's what I call convenient. I wonder how much KKK support Reagan lost for saying that he didn't want their support.

It's also an historical fact that the KKK was associated with the Democratic party in it's heyday. Back when membership was high, in the millions.

In fact, multiple KKK members were Democratic Congressmen and Senators within the lives of people still around today.

Correct. And if you were the slightest bit honest, you would admit that those people would virtually ALL be Trump voters today. I suppose to you "the southern strategy" is some kind of myth ?

I don't think Reagan was racist in that quote. It was an accurate statement for the time, even as an expression of anger. His career shows that he was a great president and not racist.

If marcus looked back 40 years when called someone a "faggot" or some other word, doesn't make Marcus a "homophobic racist bigot"... words left likes to overuse for everything.

The Southern Strategy happened AFTER the Democrats gave up racism and the Republicans have always been opposed to Racist Measures.

The Democrats are in favor racist measures today, except against Whites, and especially Males. The entire term "POC" is to separate, exclude, and isolate Whites and justify racist treatment of them.

Yep, but who cares? He was from another era where casually racist remarks were excused and even laughed at by both Republicans and Democrats. He’s not in power, he’s dead, and he’s beyond caring what you think. In short, it doesn’t matter. If you think it matters, then explain why, so we can correct your flawed thinking.

Hilary Clinton herself came to my house personally and showed me where to stick the barrel of a Sears over-under in the face of a Negro to assure a "quick and righteous death." Then, just today, Obama called my house and asked if I wanted some grenades to throw at school buses of negro children being used to 'infect white people's children at public schools.'

Also worth pointing out that the South became less racist when they started voting for Republicans.

You guys are so far gone, and stroking each other so much. I wish I could laugh.

Everyone else must be wrong about the southern strategy too, including the people that coined the term and implemented it with dog whistles.


In American politics, the Southern strategy was a Republican Party electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans.[1][2][3] As the civil rights movement and dismantling of Jim Crow laws in the 1950s and 1960s visibly deepened existing racial tensions in much of the Southern United States, Republican politicians such as presidential candidate Richard Nixon and Senator Barry Goldwater developed strategies that successfully contributed to the political realignment of many white, conservative voters in the South who had traditionally supported the Democratic Party rather than the Republican Party. It also helped to push the Republican Party much more to the right.[4]

The "Southern Strategy" refers primarily to "top down" narratives of the political realignment of the South which suggest that Republican leaders consciously appealed to many white Southerners' racial grievances in order to gain their support.[5] This top-down narrative of the Southern Strategy is generally believed to be the primary force that transformed Southern politics following the civil rights era.[6][7] This view has been questioned by historians such as Matthew Lassiter, Kevin M. Kruse and Joseph Crespino, who have presented an alternative, "bottom up" narrative, which Lassiter has called the "suburban strategy". This narrative recognizes the centrality of racial backlash to the political realignment of the South,[8] but suggests that this backlash took the form of a defense of de facto segregation in the suburbs rather than overt resistance to racial integration and that the story of this backlash is a national rather than a strictly Southern one.[9][10][11][12]

The perception that the Republican Party had served as the "vehicle of white supremacy in the South", particularly during the Goldwater campaign and the presidential elections of 1968 and 1972, made it difficult for the Republican Party to win back the support of black voters in the South in later years.[4] In 2005, Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman formally apologized to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), a national civil rights organization, for exploiting racial polarization to win elections and ignoring the black vote.

Marcus, yet again hiding behind words of strangers.

Tell us how the Republican party appealed to racism, then show us your evidence to suggest all the racists switched parties.

You can start by defining racism and perhaps explain how hyperfixating on those darn white men isn't racist as fuck.

Don Lemon had guests on who took turns talking about how the president and his supporters are racist.

That’s how the left will lose another election...

"if you enforce your border you are racist" - that's basically the new definition of racism by Democrats. It's not logical, it's down right stupid and anti American. It undermines America.

It is all they have. They need to keep Black voters as they push for unfettered illegal immigration.

Warren and Beto are "useful idiots" in this race baiting. It is a just matter of time before they themselves will be hit with the "racist" label. Biden already has been hit with the "racism" taint for long ago associating with fellow Democrat racists.
