I am sorry to subject fellow Freepers to this, but this is the purest form of racialism linked to taxation and collectivist redistribution that I've seen.

There are people out there who actually think that tax cuts -- or in the case of the present situation -- NOT raising taxes is RACIST.

They don't want to hear that raising taxes on ANYBODY will hurt the poor -- particularly people of color -- the most. Black people have suffered more than others under Obama's economic policies and stand to suffer even more if he gets what he wants.

And yet they vote for him anyway. Above is a every explicit treatment of the twisted mentality that explains why.

I don’t know whether to respond to this pack of lies (the article, not you walford), or just let it go.

Just another example of how race-baiting keeps real progress under wraps. Schools are another example. It was one thing to desegregate where boundaries were racially drawn. It was another to force integration, which only drove the white and middle class out of the public schools or into the suburbs. Then throw in “affirmative action” and Sec. 8 housing-type programs and you have a real mess. The cities, schools, shopping areas, neighborhoods, public transportation, all shot to hell. And everyone knows it, but won’t dare say it.

Lou FoxwellLess than a minute ago
The prism of race distorts discussions about taxation. Increasing taxation for the purpose of sustaining a permanent underclass is classic racism.
Government benefits to an underclass only serves to chain the recipients to dependency upon nadequate resources. Increasing those resources at the expense of self supporting citizens is not a sustainable principle.
Poverty increases as government benefits increase. The only real beneficiaries are government employees. For every dollar spent in benefits $5. is spent on the delivery system.
The solution to poverty is not to institutionalize it with government bureaucracy. Current policies are increasing poverty by reducing the ability of citizens to create paying jobs.
More than 50% of the jobs in this country are provided by small business people who use their resources to build stronger business. This always results in increased economic activity, more jobs and greater wealth. Without wealth there are no jobs. Wealth is a commodity that creates activity. Activity means jobs for more people.

” President Obama reiterated his call for the top 2 percent of income earners—those making more than $200,000 a year—to pay more. Doing so, he argues, will help ease the country’s current budgetary strain. “

Republican in D.C. could have wrapped this lie around Obama’s neck, but you can do that when you HIDE IN YOUR OFFICE FOR 4 YEARS.

The number of bold-faced lies stated as fact in that piece is rather stunning.

[Art.] Norquist’s true leverage comes from the fact that he speaks for the secretive billionaire Koch Brothers, who are propping up large parts of the GOP with immense sums of dark money.

Speaking of "color", once Imara Jones quits "coloring up" sentences like this with ominous adumbrations and starts conceding that George Soros does the same from an even shadier background (he's the old Jew-hunter from WW II, remember), then maybe we can have a conversation.

Meanwhile, here's a radical thought: If Imara Jones wants to talk about the Koch brothers and what they believe and what they want to do .... why doesn't she go ask them?

It's not like they're skulking Alinskyite or New World Order slavemaster-wannabe's like Soros.
