I knew I could count on you to feel compelled to object vociferously with the characteristic level of sophistication and style we've all grown to expect. Although crude, of course, the abrasive denial strategy of your reflexive smack-down reveals absolutely no compunction about calling liars those having the temerity to post factual information that you find inconvenient or with which you may otherwise disagree.
I'll not dignify your assertion, "Liberals are far more racist than conservatives," with a rebuttal because non is necessary since you make it without any supportive documentation and I'll leave it to others to evaluate its veracity.
When you assert "There are blacks in the TEA party," you implicitly imply the premise that an a tea party actually exists. Yes, there are tea partiers holding the formerly GOP hostage, just as they previously held the Democrat Party hostage as Dixiecrats. For some reason, whatever they call themselves, they choose to invade, occupy and hijack organized political parties rather than forming their own. Perhaps the Klan was the closest they ever came, but it was not purely a political party per se.
Be that as it may, I have no doubt that there are some African Americans who are themselves tea partiers. Perhaps it's due to identification with the aggressor. Consider the Stockholm Syndrome, for example, or gay bashing homophobes.
By the way, I consider myself a progressive, not a liberal, as I've previously told you for the reasons I previously told you.
I harbor no illusion that you'll develop interest in actually discussing this issue, beyond vehemently objecting without meaningful argument to posts with which you disagree, but I address a broader audience that has an open mind.
97% of blacks voted for barock, even though he's the worst president in history.

I'm not sorry the truth hurts you.

Minorities are far more racist than whites today.

Look at all the black mobs attacking whites.

While I don't doubt that 99% of all African American voters voted for President Barack Obama (you consistently misspell his name), there's no truth to everything else you said, for which of course as usual you could find no empirical support. There's no reason to believe that "minorities" are more racist than "whites" and you cite "all the black mobs attacking whites" without specifying even one instance. We can't take your ridiculous unsupported assertions seriously. I've learned to expect no reasonable response from you and my response is directed to a broader open-minded audience.

The Republicans are bringing in new blood with actual resumes and real life experience, unlike the surrendercrats who are doubling down with the same old, tired corruptocrats who die in office and need affirmative action to boost their creds.

Who are they, pray tell, all these alleged new people bearing "actual resumes and real life experience?" It's unlike you to play coy, so what's up? I can't wait to find out. I remember when Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, Rand Paul and the others were all new.

Two who've captured my own interest are hog castrator Jodi Ernst in Iowa (
) and shucky-ducky pajama model Blake Farenthold in Texas ( http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/republican-co... ). It looks like there'll be no shortage of entertainment in the foreseeable future, but who am I missing?

I hate to say it, but upon careful scientific analysis, the Civil Rights Movement actually made matters worse for most African-Americans. Equal protection laws essentially increased the demand for America's domestic armed forces. When you increase the demand for any good or service, public or private, you also increase supply. Ergo, the Civil Rights Movement actually helped white supremacists develop more advanced and sophisticated weaponry and tactics, which paradoxically dwarfed our so-called legal rights.

Dr. King was a preacher, not an economist, so he couldn't see this coming.(I have a degree in economics, and have also fallen victim to the situation I just described.) King did have some advisors who warned him that the Civil Rights Movement was "untimely and unwise", but he proceeded anyway. Men.
