Another Democrat suggests racism within GOP, drawing another sharp response
FOX News ^ | April 14, 2014

Posted on 04/13/2014 4:49:48 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

New York Rep. Steve Israel said Sunday a significant part of the Republican Party is “animated by racism,” marking the third time in recent days that a leading Democrat has appeared to make race an issue and draw a sharp response from Republicans.

Israel, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, whose major role is the get his House members re-elected, told CNN’s “State of the Union” that not all of his Republican colleagues are racist.

“Not all of them, of course not,” he said. “But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism.”

They need to get over this nonsense. I would bet conservatives have more black friends than liberals do. I find it interesting to check people’s friends on FB. Most of my conservative friends have all sorts of friends. My children have “diverse” friends. They just sound ridiculous. And who bashes black conservatives relentlessly?

The DNC has LONG supported terrorism, antiSemitism,
crucifixions, slavery, beheadings, and child rape
around the world, and going back to the US civil war.

Good Lord, Democrats, that card has been overplayed to the point that you have redefined the word 'racist' to mean 'disagreement with any liberal about any topic whatsoever.'

Ergo, I am a proud racist.

GOP should respond that the Dem Party is anti white. Point out that Dems are fast to blame whites for everything even after US has inacted affirmative action, Civil Rights Bill and made allowances for minorities in schools, gov and corporations. Point out that in general whites even pay higher taxes to implement racial equality and now the Dems are still blaming whites and want whites to pay even more. Point out to loud mouth Dems that whites make up 65 percent of the US, if they get mad it ain’t going to be pretty.

Hitler's party was the National Socialists. It advocated all of the things near and dear to DemonRATS: abortion, atheism, sodomy, gun control, labor unions, genocide, a government-run auto industry, environment regulations. Godwin's Law aside, and without any hint of irony, is there any question all that DemonRATS of 2014 would be first in line to goose-step to the Nazis?

Westboro thug Fred Phelps was a DemonRAT and the recipient of numerous awards from racist outfits such as the NAACP, an organization founded by the notorious commie, W.E.B. DuBois and like-minded subversives.

When someone calls me a racist I ask if the reason they don’t live in a predominantly minority neighborhood is because the people are poor.....or because they are black. If you’re gonna preach it you darn well better be living it.

Boehner responds by going on the defensive, just as the Democrat knew he would.

Personally I don’t care if the left thinks I’m racist or not. I’m not going to try to defend or justify myself to them by trying to prove the number of black friends I have.

FALSE. "When the Nazis came to power in 1933 one of the first acts Hitler did was to legalize abortion." Here's the source: Hitler and Abortion (Hitler was a Leftist). And even a cursory search of threads here on Free Republic confirms that assertion.

There is only one color in the USA the red of the blood that has been sacrificed to create and maintain our nation and the liberty and freedom that the common people never had before.

When ever you hear some politician hollering racism your listening to the racist in the conversation.

This is nothing more than a blatant attempt to enrage Blacks to get them out to vote in 2014. Dems cannot argue on Obamacare, the economy or international affairs, so they have to make accusations against Repubs to try to get their base to turn out. It’s worked in the past.

He was pro-abortionist towards non-Germans.The Nazis wanted to increase the native German population to the numbers necessary to create a large army and workers for the future Nazi state and it’s conquest of the world. To that end the SS under Heinrich Himmler , with Hitlers blessing created the “Lebensborn’’ program in which all healthy,young Aryan women were encouraged to join and in effect become pregnant outside of wedlock to create more Nazis.

Abortion is abortion. Hitler, like Wendy Davis (candidate for Texas governor) and fellow DemonRATS, are in favor of murdering children. There's no such thing as selective abortion. It's always wrong since there are moral absolutes.

They have to sincerely believe this tripe. It is all they have to hang their dunce caps on. If they don't believe in that all else fails to fall into place. The failures of their policies and programs have to be some racists fault as it is impossible for it to be theirs. They after all...are perfection personified.

Republicans are SO racist that the continue to pour money down the bottomless pit of transfer payments...almost $4 TRILLION in welfare alone in the last five years.

We’ve got 13M people on welfare; 47M on food stamps; 6M on unemployment insurance. 40% of recipients are black.

They are framing the mid-terms to be about RACE...anything to stay away from Obamunism and ObamaTyrantCare.

“Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t the KKK mostly DemocRats?”

I’d suggest that you may be more right than you know. The KKK was conceived by Democrats as a vehicle for suppressing voting by newly freed former Negro slaves, because they were too much inclined to vote for Republicans. After all, Father Abraham, whom they likely thought their Liberator, was Republican.

My friend, study the history of Nazi Germany in depth and you’ll find that neither Hitler or anyone else in the Nazi Party advocated aborting healthy Aryan(German) children. The New Order, the Nazi state would need more soldiers, workers and mothers. Sterilization and/or the murder(’’mercy killing’’) of the mentally ill or physically unfit or elderly was something the Nazis engaged in. Look up the “T-4’’ program.
