Democratic leader: GOP base ‘animated by racism’

By S.A. Miller

WASHINGTON – A prominent House Democratic leader showed his contempt for Republican voters Sunday, accusing a large portion of them of being racists. “To a significant extent the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that’s unfortunate,” said Long Island Rep. Steve Israel said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Israel, who is chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, was only slightly less insulting to his Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill. Asked if they were racists, Israel responded: “Not all of them, of course not.” House Republicans tried to ignore the race-baiting jab.

“...the Democrat base does have elements that are animated by hatred of America.”

The blacks on the democrat plantation are getting restless....several prominent black leaders are calling the democrats out....

The black vote can not be taken for granted anymore....even a 5 % switch or if they sit on their hands and not vote is a democrat disaster. ...

The dems are pulling out the only page in their playbook when it comes the blacks. ...

Them evil white repubicans are racist !!!!

A portion of the GOP base is animated by racism. It’s less than 1% of the GOP, but if you parse the words this was not quite a lie.

In contrast, about 90% of the Democrat base is animated by racism - Dem base (somewhat more so than Dem voters and far more than GOP) tend to be blacks who hate white, whites who hate whites, and whites who despise blacks and think the only way blacks can get by is with government help.

That’s exactly what it is, if it weren’t for black votes Democraps would be obliterated in every election. That’s why I was saying in every election Republicans should talk about the history of Democraps and blacks, just repeat it over and over like a mantra, that’s all they would have to do and the Democrap party would cease to exist. I was talking to one black guy a few years ago telling him “Hey did you know as late as 2010, the Democrats still had a KKK guy by the name of Robert Byrd in the Senate?” He didn’t believe me until he looked it up and then told me he would never vote Democrat again. There you go! It’s as simple as that. It’s just basic promotion, making things aware that Democraps try to hide.

There is also the definition of racism to mull over. The word is often used beyond the scope

There is also culturism. Culturism is thought and comment pertaining to various cultures and subcultures.

A culturist can criticize various aspects of a culture or sub culture and not be a racist. Race is not necessarily pertinent to the subculture.

The democrats here seem to be critical of culturists and misidentify them as racists.

Oh yes, and this made quite an impression:

“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.
—Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1946”

Too bad these are not the old days of the Republic. Back then, a real man would have challenged this despicable creature to a duel. Apologize, or choose your weapon.

Case in point: My first boss was an Amherst grad from patrician Virginia. He mocked my conservatism and preference for Goldwater (it was 1963). When he took his vacation that summer, he went to Mississippi and served as a Freedom Rider -- an action that I admired.

However, upon his return, he came to the office flustered. Well, angered, actually. He told me that his landlord had allowed "a dirty n-word" to rent the apartment next to his. And he moved out, forthwith.

My admiration declined. And I gained some insight into the liberal mind...

Democrats that have nothing to crow about, nothing positive to offer, have only a line of failures to talk about. Now they resort to animation of their base by playing the race card over and over.

Steve “Schmuck” Israel ought to look at his own bigots in the RAT party such as, Sharpton, Jackson, Holder and the Obamas.

“Democraps are getting desperate....”

They’ll figure out a way to spin their problems into the fault of Republicans.

IMHO

I’m a bigot and I discriminate on behavior. But I don’t care what color someone’s skin is or what hangs or doesn’t between someone’s legs.

I learned that in church, home and school..................

Good point.
I DO discriminate based on behavior from years of experience. And that is color blind.

A perfect description of a detestable junior-high-schooler.

They use it because it works, or at least it has.

They use it because the prominent people on our side are cowed into silence by the accusation.

They’ll stop using it when it stops working for this effect.

I used to talk politics as part of my job, and liberals are remarkably open about their beliefs in a business situation. Quite a few have told me that blacks will never be ready to compete without affirmative action because (in their racist view) those people just don't have the intellectual capacity to succeed on their own. When I contrast that with the conservatives I've worked with, few of whom think skin color matters at all, I'm disappointed in how poorly the GOP has marketed its values - and disgusted at how well the Democrats have marketed a culture of dependency.

What makes you think the GOP-e doesn't share the liberal viewpoint on blacks?

Conservatives might look beyond color and at character, but I doubt the party leadership does.

Averting some major scandal or failure if they’re falling back and regrouping with the racism stuff lately? Come on...it’s old and beat to death. Try something else already.
