RE: Columnist right to blame racism

In 1775 an Englishman named Sam Johnston declared "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

In 2009 Democrats declared "If you oppose Obama you are a racist."

With the injection of race baiting into the health care debate I believe that we may be looking at another one term Democratic president.

If you feel calling a person a liar is acceptable, so be it. And in this case, I will ask... prove it. Just like when they claim he's marxist or communist or socialist or anything else except the democratic American president.
1) I don't have to prove it. I didn't call him a liar, Rep. Wilson did. Although, I do fully agree with that sentiment based on the fact that, after the incident, the WH said they would change the wording to make sure illegals were not eligible.
2) If you surround yourself with communists, socialists, America haters, whatever, there can only be a few reasons why. One - you are in agreement with their ideology or, two - you have no control over your advisers who are bringing them in. I suspect both.
Yes, he was elected in a democratic fashion. But with all the allegations and convictions of voter fraud by his supporters in the last election, there is some doubt that the entire process was fair. Unless, and until, proven otherwise, he is still my legitimate President as well as yours. And I can handle that. But, can the country?

Van Jones resigned from his appointed post with the Obama admin because people found out that he is a communist but MSNBC, CNN, ABC, did not bother to tell the public that, did they? Why not? Because they are not reliable, fair media and side with Obama no matter what--even when he is wrong and blame it on racism. No one made this up -- it is the truth and truth hurts, doesn't it? IT IS NOT RACISM!

1) lol! You're right! Since you're limiting it to your opinion, I see no problem there.

2) I see. The "best" only come from one side of the street. Everyone else is either not good, or has bad ideas. Funny how that "reaching across the aisle" thing is selective when it comes republicans. It seems it's either "your way or no way."

As for the election being fair, seems to me Bush had things well in hand in Florida to get him into office since everyone who decided he would get the votes were either high ranking republicans or family.

Totally agree with letter writer Mark Yasuhara.

You are not the only one to realize and notice the racism involved with the trashing of President Obama.

Earth to Mark Yasuhara. How can you call it racism when an overwhelming white majority voted for Obama?

It's his apologist and socialist policies which are being objected to, not the color of his skin.

Under his watch the security of the United States will be tested not only by our enemies but also by our staunchest allies who are beginning to wonder if they can count on the United States to stand with them instead of backing down.

Now where in 2) did I put people in classes? I was pointing out their ideology which is not the American way. Communism and socialism have failed miserably throughout history. Why try to re-invent it in a Republic? It doesn't make sense and it just plain wrong.
For the record, I'm an independent moderate conservative. I have, and will, vote for candidates in either Repub or Dem parties. I have, and will, continue to provide what support I can for wither. Issues, my man, issues. Not ideology.

Mark Yasuhara ponders why the preponderance of Tea Party participants are ‘Caucasian.’ Simple, Mark: Under this administration tax paying Caucasians are the most directly affected its insane fiscal policies. As an aside, the police made no arrests during the day. No drunks, no stabbings, no shootings, no robberies. Oh?

<quoted text>lol! Yes. You should talk to Edward Kelly (a couple posts above yours) about racism. Seems he's all fired up about it too.
The old, "divide and conquer" Liberal ploy. Trying to turn people against each other.

Was that in Saul Alinsky's (radical Left-wing activist, and mentor of both Obama and Hillary Clinton) manual, "Rules for Radicals"? You know the very rules that Obama used to teach?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saul_Alinsky

For example:
"RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.(This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)"
