Show Some Civility, You Nazi Racists!

Steve McCann on the divisiveness of the Obama Age:

This past week, Bob Sheiffer of CBS compared defeating the NRA to defeating the Nazis in World War II. Not to be outdone Martin Bashir of NBC said the NRA “…deserved to be compared to Hitler.” Representative Hank Johnson (D-GA) claimed:  “…they [NRA] cannot get over the fact that Obama is black.” And the ever reasonable Charlie Rangel (D-NY) in discussing gun control said: “..the Southern states have cultures that we have to overcome.” These are but a few of the many references to either Hitler, the Nazis, racism or backwoods gun-totting hicks in fly-over country since the debate spawned by Obama’s determination to impose more stringent gun control measures began. . . .
Since Barack Obama was inaugurated in January of 2009, the use of the race card has reached epidemic proportions. Anyone who disagrees with his policies is branded a racist — a term filled with negative and ominous connotations. Its use is solely intended to demonize and intimidate the political opposition and is succeeding only in creating the most polarized society since the 1960’s.

Actually, America is much more polarized than we were 50 years ago. In 1963, pro-Castro Marxists were relatively few. “Lone nuts,” we called ’em. Even as late as 1968, pro-Palestinian radicals were so rare in America that nobody could comprehend their sentiments. I remember one day in June 1968, my mother crying, “Why? Why?”

Now those people are in charge of the country and, if you disagree with them, you’re the radical . . .

    Isn’t Hank Johnson the one who thought Guam would tip over if we stationed too many of our military on one side of the island?

    He represents Cynthia McKinney’s former constituents. Apparently Cynthia wasn’t the problem.

    Seriously why do we still have Black History Month? It was questionable in the first place but now it is just condescending. I support black history being taught in schools but along with every one else’s history in the United States. History should be taught based on events and the individuals who were involved, rather than based on race. Obviously there are issues where race or groups should be addressed as such, but it should not be the central focus.

    When the Georgia legislature drew the lines, they tried to concentrate all the kooks in one district.

    January 21st, 2013 @ 12:47 pm Charles Heston spoke out about civil rights, but in the end he was vilified by the left because he supported the 2nd amendment too.

    I’m not racist. I don’t trust Rahm Emmanuel or Mikey Bloomberg either.

    Race is neither and essence or culture. It is not a social construct either. It is biological and goes to the DNA. The major racial group derivation of a skeleton can be identified from the bone structure. It is not a mere figment of someone’s imagination, and it stupid in the extreme to state otherwise.

    Having said that, while many things are dictated by our genetic heritage, intelligence (also known as “G”) being just one of those things it does not dictate our success in life. There have many geniuses that have found themselves on loading docks, and many of lesser intelligence have been quite successful.

    The worst form of racism is not the truth, but the racism of low expectations. The Dimocrats and most faux conservatives are guilty as original sin when it comes to that.

    Ever see the posters for Black History Month over the past few years? They have Obama’s photo on it. Michelle’s as well. Great advertising.

    As I’ve repeated before: the 21st century definition of a racist is someone who’s winning an argument with a liberal.

    That’s a misperception. You don’t identify a “race,” you identify a genetic strain. The reason you can’t identify a “race” is because people think skin color IS race. But an australasian aborigine is as genetically different from a sudanese black as that sudanese black is from a polynesian or mexican. They are not the same genetic strain at all.

    The fact is, there is no actual point in skin tones where people can say, yes, above this line you’re black, and below it, you’re white, anymore than they can do with asian features versus polynesian, or hair color, or any other damn thing you want to measure. That’s just the way it is. Claiming some group belongs to a “race” is nothing more than a big, fat lie cooked up by the original racists: the tribalists.

    Besides, only Democrats care about skin color. To hell with them.

    I have an elderly friend with a tattoo on his forearm and an NRA Life Member card in his wallet who might disagree with Mr. Bashir.

    Skin color is just one racial feature. Steve Sailor has a very good definition of a “race” – an extended inbred family. We used to refer, for example to the English, or Irish race as two examples.

    To equate race to skin color is nor just shallow, but ignorant. Yet, Dimcrats do it as a matter of course.

    I’m not sure if you are denying the existence of race, but if you are, you’re quite deluded. Its akin to denying that a Dachshund is not different from a Great Dane. But, that’s your choice.

    Yes, Hank…it’s ALL because Obummer’s Black. (Well, actually, half-Black.) It’s got nothing to do with his being raised by avowed Communists, surrounding himself with unrepentant terrorists, and acting like he’s a king instead of a President. Nothing at all.
    Now, take your pills and if you behave yourself, we’ll give you some toys to play with. Maybe even some markers to write on the rubber walls of your room. We promise, your room won’t tip over and capsize.
    Why the hell is anyone taking the words of an obvious mental case seriously?

    Not even close. Breeds are culled (non-conforming ones are sterilized or destroyed). Humans aren’t. Breeds are highly focal, seriously selective forms of what Sailor means by “inbreeding.” Geography and tribalism combined can’t do nearly the selection you get in breeds. Not only that, but it’s the understanding of mendelian traits that breeders use to coerce features out of the species, that leads to greater and greater diversity. If some mad scientist/breeder were turned loose on the human population, we’d be able to have a whole bunch of humans who are at least as big as Wilt Chamberlain and Shaquille O’neil, as well as people much smaller than Robert Reich. So that just doesn’t map to anything like “race.”

    The delusion is that “race” is a signifying factor in any way. It isn’t, because the variance in humans is immensely broad, not just red, yellow, black, and white. Those colors were a lie, just as much as the notion of ‘hispanic’ being a ‘race’ is a total contradiction of everything race-proponents stand for.

    Sorry, but “race” is absolute bullshit.

    It’s not the black that’s an issue…’s the RED no matter what color their skin is. Not the race but the radical idealogy. The communists have got to keep everyone focused on Obama’s blackness so folks won’t notice how RED he really is. It’s not racism to refuse to be intimidated into being color blind. We need to start sending cases of Visine to the White House, the Progressive and Black Caucuses.

    Sending the Visine won’t help: these people are self-blinding.

    But the ad says “Visine Gets The Red Out…..” Of course the message might be lost on these blind fools.

    Sorry, but race *IS* reality, like it or not. I’ll let you keep digging your own hole of ignorance as you aren’t going to listen to any facts. Your problem is you don’t have the slightest idea what is meant by race. You gone down a similar Rabbit hole as the leftists that is just as much of a dead end of ignorance as the path they chose.

    I not only “listen” to facts, I presented several, which you seem to be overlooking with great intensity.

    “Race” is a lie. Always has been. That’s the game of racism, though. Besides, only Democrats care about skin color. To hell with them.
