Amerikkka will NEVER profile their pale male DEAMONS!!! MOST PALE MALES are mass killers,
Mass CHILD RAPIST, mass SEX PERVERTS and even have sex with ANIMALS. They are wicked RACIST
and the thing about them is, THEY KNOW THIS!!!
and they don't care.' They even kill eachother on
a MASS SCALE and their history is nothing but MASS MURDERS, MASS RAPE and MASS THEFT. And to profile pale males would ADMITT their WICKEDNESS. They are SO corrupted with desire
that they can think of nothing but what THEY want.
Also a LOT of BROTHERS like tiger the hood woods, oj SIMPLETON and all these other sport SLAVES CANNOT HANDLE A BLACK QUEEN, so they
Run to their OPEN ENEMY" their SLAVE MASTER'S
GREAT GRAND CHILDREN. These WEEK slave BROTHERS are so fascinated by evil that they CANNOT recognize what is good even when they
are LOOKING right at it. They are going to DANCE
THEIR WAY RIGHT INTO THE GAS CHAMEBER. I
LOVE MY BLACK PEOPLE AND WANT THE BEST FOR
US.

I don't agree with Powell on everything he says, but he has a point.

The intolerance of the GOP, led by the extremist social conservatives, drives away a lot of people who would otherwise support the Republican Party.

Anti-gay, anti-immigrant (legal or otherwise), anti-black, anti-hispanic, anti-asian, anti-drug, anti-Muslim, anti-atheist, anti-woman, anti-abortion, etc.

I know a lot of Republicans don't subscribe to it, but the extremist social conservatives, who lead the "anti-" wing of the Republican Party, have led many Americans to think the entire party is anti-everything that isn't white, Christian, and male (straight male only, of course).

That intolerance is one of the two big reasons I left the GOP and now mostly vote Libertarian (though I still support good Republicans like Ron Paul). Seems that Colin Powell is kind of in the same boat, he still kinda considers himself a Republican, but he finds himself drifting away from the intolerant "antis" who seem to be leading the party.

Nobody pays attention anymore to what that house negro has to say. The only thing he ever did was fetch tea for Bush.
