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 couldnt vote and slavery was cool.
Thomas Roberts comments came in response to former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorums answer during Thursdays presidential debate about gay service members in the military. Santorum said the repeal of dont ask, dont tell amounted to social experimentation and, if elected, he would re-instate a similar policy.

The only problem that liberals have with the history of chattel slavery in America is that the slaves were privately owned.
They are counting on ignorance that Democrats ARE the party of slavery...
LOL @Christopher Walken, but it there ANY rhetoric that isn’t too over the top for the looney left? Yes, I want go back to the time when men were men, women were women, and slavery was cool, ya figured me out.
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.
And the Democrats want us to go back to the time when the kings ruled by divine right. A**holes.
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.
Naa... I’d just settle for a time when the president of the united states wasn’t a socialist
Friendly reminder for MSNBC:
Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.
“Why do they call you Red, anyway?”
“Maybe it’s cause I’m Irish.”
Senator Byrd comes to mind, also the comment Clinton or fat head ted made rescently about zero, “that in days gone by he would be bringing me coffee, I guess if you have the same agenda you get a pass when making racist comments “
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.
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.
A time when slavery was “cool”?
In parts of Africa, that time is “Today”.
If godless liberals want to take that up with God, let them try.
It is really that simple.
Democrats were running the show back when slavery was cool. I don’t believe Republicans are wanting Democrats back in control.
Segregationist Democrat Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus was the one blocking racial integration of Little Rock Central High.
(Republican) Eisenhower, faced him down and integrated the school.
If someone said the same thing about Democrats they would be fired and the network would apologize.
civility, it’s not for dinner.
