MSNBC Host: GOP Candidates Want to Go Back to a Time When ‘Slavery was Cool’
The Blaze ^ | 09-24-11 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 09/24/2011 11:34:04 AM PDT by Lazlo in PA

The racism charges keep coming at the Republicans.

The same day actor Morgan Freeman said the Tea Party was “racist” in its attempts to get President Barack Obama out of office, an MSNBC anchor said the GOP presidential candidates would like to go back to a time when women couldn’t vote and “slavery was cool.”

Thomas Roberts’ comments came in response to former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum‘s answer during Thursday’s presidential debate about gay service members in the military. Santorum said the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell“ amounted to ”social experimentation” and, if elected, he would re-instate a similar policy.

Is there anything that the dopes a PMSLSD won't say? Almost everything they talk about anymore is outrageously inflammatory.

The only problem that liberals have with the history of chattel slavery in America is that the slaves were privately owned.

These people are ignorant beyond belief . . . . in fact, they are the racists for even trying to go there with this stupidity

Congrats, Freeman, btw. Glad to see you’re still on the plantation, dancing to the strings of left wing White America.

The Republican Party was founded to stop the spread of slavery. The Demonrats kept control of the country for years through an obscene alliance of corrupt urban socialists and Southern racists. The only black nominated by the Demonrat Party was a cross between an African illegal immigrant and a communist white woman. Republican Presidential candidates have already included American blacks like Alan Keyes, and now we have the chance to nominate a real winner like all-American Herman Cain. Let them take their racist lies and shove them.

There is no escaping such moronic pronouncements.

Even here on FreeRepublic, on more than one occasion, I have said "I miss the 1950s."

And then I have been attacked by outraged freepers crying, "Really?? You want to bring back Jim Crow?! Hey, this is a Conservative site, buddy!"

It might be funny as satire, but these freepers meant it.

So 2 of our candidates who are most popular with true conservatives are a woman and a black man but we want slavery and subjugation of women. They aren’t even trying anymore, just repeating a worn out meme to convince themselves.

Ok, from memory of history I think: The Republicans, led by Lincoln, freed the salves. And wasn't the KKK an organization affiliated with the Democrat Party and didn't the Democrat party mostly vote against the civil rights laws in the 60’s? Just saying or am I misinformed?

Racism is when you treat people differently because of their skin color and ancestry. I’m for ignoring race. Liberals don’t want to ignore race. They want to use race as a wedge issue to advance their own agenda.

God has issued a condemnation of murder, adultery, premarital sex, kidnapping, lying, idolatry, and homosexuality.

If godless liberals want to take that up with God, let them try.

It is really that simple.

Segregationist Democrat Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus was the one blocking racial integration of Little Rock Central High.

hmmm... so I’m a racist.

Every one of my arguments against Obama over the years has involved his liberal/socialist leanings and poor management of our economy.

Every one of my arguments pro-Cain revolve around his business experience, his common sense stands on the issues, his solid moral foundation, and his ability to communicate conservative ideals and his economic plan to the masses.

I’ve been reviewing the candidates for weeks and, out of all of them, I firmly believe that Cain is the BEST MAN for the job. (I really want to see Bachmann as our VP nominee.)

I’m not thinking about pitting one black man against another. I’m looking for the man who can save our nation and I believe that Cain is the best man for the job. Had he been white, indian, hispanic or of asian descent, I would still be supporting this man.

So the LIEbrals can insult me all they want. I know what went on behind my thinking process.

And BTW, I have blood family that are half black and some that are half hispanic. I don’t love them any more of less because of the color of their skin. (I am jealous of the permanent tan and pretty curls, though!)

You're way off there. I just consulted the new revised history book that they use in public schools. Bill Clinton freed the slaves because he was Americas first black President. The only thing that I could find on President Lincoln in there is that he invented the Town Car.

1950’s I was not around but men were men and women were women, today these fools want men being women, women wearing strap ons to be men, and men to be a woman who thinks they’re a lesbian.

sanity reigned back then , today we have a public education which does not teach, lazy teachers and many fools teaching in colleges so they can get the likes of zero and his nutters in power for ever

Well I'm with you. I would love to go back to a time when you could leave your keys in an unattended car, you could smoke in a bar, low Gov't regulations and much more economic freedom just to name a few. If we got dopes running around here like Libs whining about Jim Crow and other unfortunate asides, they need to ride the lightning.

nail on head

Any time I hear someone say this is not diverse, or my area or county is not diverse I just turn around and tell them that I had not noticed as I look at people as people and not by their color as MLK wanted.

Guarantee the lefty loons who throw their diverse crap about will shut up.

Nothing out of the ordinary about it. They cry “racists!” every general election, and in many local elections. They ignore when a black murders some little boy but when a white guy does it, they SHOUT IT from the rooftops.

Yet there are people on FR who think Herman Cain is doomed because 0bama has "poisoned the water" and discredited blacks. Baraq Hussein 0bama is not an American black, but a cross between a Marxist African illegal alien and a white communist chick. Herman Cain would be the first African-American President. He is American and conservative all the way.

The Democratic party was and remains the party of slavery.

In the old days, the slavery was designed so that persons were brought to America against their will, bought and sold, and made to work in exchange for food, clothing and shelter.

Today, while the old practice of slavery is gone, the Democratic party pushes ignorance of business and investing, immorality, covetousness that drives people to want and feel entitled to material things they can’t afford, “socialist” and “communist” schemes of “communal property”, the practice of being free and easy with credit as well as government handouts.

Consequently, many people today are slaves to debt as well as an inability and lack of desire to take care of themselves. One can never accumulate anything, will pass on nothing (in property or knowledge) to one’s children and will live “hand-to-mouth” for one’s entire life if enslaved in this way.

Important note: In 1919, when both houses of congress resolved to approve the 19th Amendment, which was then sent to the States, BOTH houses of the 66th congress were MAJORITY Republican.

Republicans get the credit for women’s suffrage, NOT Democrats.

In the US House (vote was 304 to 89)

Republican (R): 240 (majority), Democratic (D): 192, Prohibition (Proh.): 1, and Farmer-Labor (F-L): 1

221 Republicans voted for adoption, 19 against.
120 Democrats voted for adoption, 70 against.

In the US Senate (vote was 56 to 25):

Republican (R): 49 (majority), Democratic (D): 47

36 Republicans voted for adoption, 8 against.
20 Democrats voted for adoption, 17 against.
