Well good luck trying to promote conservatism by comparing African-Americans to monkees.

In this case the apology was in order; however, he should end it right there, not go on an apology tour.

I can't see that type of revolting "humor" gaining any voters of any race. Why would such a "joke" make anybody more likely to vote Republican?

For some reason, there seems to be a few on this thread that believe the joke was funny and does is not hurt the GOP.

My guess is that such jokes by GOP officials alienates voters of all races.

You post that, or any other image like that again, Mr. Duke - and I’m banning your racist ass.

Got it?

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury.

“From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising them the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:

“From bondage to spiritual faith;
from spiritual faith to great courage;
from courage to liberty;
from liberty to abundance;
from abundance to selfishness;
from selfishness to apathy;
from apathy to dependence;
from dependency back again into bondage.”

There never was anything remotely racist in my post to begin with. I really don’t appreciate your lies in claiming there was.

I never did claim that your post was racist.

Instead, I said that there is nothing racist about the post that now reads Comment #48 Removed by Moderator.

Okay, I’m not going to say Michelle Obama is ugly. But didn’t I see her ordering roast duck with mango salsa on a GEICO commercial a while back?

Well, for some reason, your post 48 was removed.

Perhaps, you should re-post its original content.

No thanks, because ignorant hyperdefensive morons (who helped 0bama get elected) who are too stupid to understand will get their knickers in a twist again.

[The ugliness toward Michelle Obama is not helping save this country from her husbands dangerous policies.
I see it on this website also, and it is stupid politics stooping to DU levels.]

I agree with you. I, too, thought we were here to fight Obama's dangerous politics. Ranting against Michelle's stupid statements is valid but the ugliness against her looks has become vile.

Often now, I would like to ask these people to post a full length 'unaltered' picture of themselves lounging around the house. If they can make 'ugly statements' then they should be held to task too, right?

I have never known of a problem that meaness solved and I won't stoop to meaness to vent my anger.
