<quoted text> Yea typical whites do react negatively to blacks when encountered in the streets. Now make up your mind, is Obama a Muslim or, a Christian with a Christian spiritual advisor? Can't have it both ways!
What typical whites are you talking about?

What street?

What reaction?

Why negative?

You make sweeping statements and continue not to want to explain them.

You never had a boss hug on you or you would know how cheap this makes you feel and how grateful that there is a law where you can say this is not acceptable. I didn't file a complaint but simply pointed out the wrong behavior.

President Andrew Johnson's decentralized approach to implementing Reconstruction was very close and similar to the modern-day republicans like Nixon , Reagan, Paul Ryan and libertarians like Ron Paul's states rights argument.

President Obama spent months in 2010 warning Americans about the 'threat' to democracy posed by conservative groups right at the time the IRS began targeting these groups.
(Timeline and quotes listed in article.)

Says Kimberley Strassel of WSJ who wrote the article,“Yet we are to believe that a few rogue IRS employees just happened during that time to begin systematically targeting conservative groups?"

Make our schools more productive is a viewpoint of ALL except the far Left Progressives. No one but the KKK has teachers being jailed. You are such an idiot.
Last time I checked the polls, balancing the budget was something Independents supported. Nothing about balance budget in KKK platform.
Abortion and homosexuality for example is not part of TEA Party platform.
Who wants the Federal Reserve Act repelled exactly? Didn't find this in either platform.
KKK has nothing about flat tax.

Now I should be allowed to kick your BUTT for me having to read the KKK platform to see if you were lying.
You are a radical who thinks anyone who isn't a PROGRESSIVE has to be so far right that they fit into the Jew hating KKK group.

First paragraph of your article

"The Radical Republicans believed blacks were entitled to the same political rights and opportunities as whites. They also believed that the Confederate leaders should be punished for their roles in the Civil War."

Wow, that is radical. Who wrote this article?

"President Johnson stood in opposition. He ...vetoed the Civil Rights Bill rejecting that blacks have the "same rights of property and person" as whites. Moderate Republicans were appalled at Johnson's racism. They joined with the Radicals to overturn Johnson's Civil Rights Act veto. "

No matter if the article calls them Radical the bottom line is the bill they supported is what is accepted law .

No matter how you spin it, Johnson was a racist as stated by the article.

Johnson was impeached for failure to enact laws Congress passed

Today’s GOP vs. Tomorrow’s GOP on Immigration

We are about to watch something unfold that is really fascinating and very rare in American politics. One of our two major parties—I’ll let you guess which one!—is on the cusp of having to weigh what is good for its congressional wing in the short term versus what is good for its aspirations to reclaim the presidency over the long term. I’m not sure this has any precedent, at least in the modern history of the republic: a party that, electorally, demographically, and culturally, has so insulated and isolated itself from the rest of the nation that what’s good for its legislators is bad for the party’s future—not to mention the rest of the country.

Yes, I do recall that...quite vividly.

I also recall a black republican being beat up by four liberal men for selling patriotic material at one of those peaceful rallies.

The media doesn't like reporting those kinds of things though - might disturb the herd mentality to think objectively.

Planned Parenthood continues to practice eugenics today.
You really need to go back to school and get an education.

Eugenics according to the American Sociological Review: "A social philosophy advocating the improvement of human hereditary traits through the promotion of higher reproduction of more desired people and traits, and reduced reproduction of less desired people and traits."

Israel has embraced eugenics not Planned Parenthood.
