For what it's worth, and that may be nothing coming from me, if Romney knew the history of the state of Michigan, he WOULD have a problem with his birth certificate! Especially Michigan's history with Henry Ford....
Emerge, could you please remove my previous comment? I don't want to "start" anything from anyone from Michigan...my comment may be inappropriate...thanks...
Okay, so here's the point: Henry Ford was a NOTORIOUSLY HATEFUL anti-Semite...he and other "movers and shakers" who are known by all but will not be named, would gather each year to discuss the state of "affairs of business" of the U.S. I was NOT in any way slamming Muslims...I just felt it was time people knew the ENTIRE story behind Ford Motor Company, along with Ford's campaign against Jews. Knowing that a presidential candidate is open to unmerciful speculation, it's surprising to me that no one has brought this up. And so, Emerge, I'm not trying to "start" anything with anyone born in Michigan, rather, saying that a PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE from there, in MHO, would be wise not to emphasize it. I'm an Independent, BTW, and find it unusual that no one brought up the whole Obama "birth certificate" issue up all the times he ran for office in Illinois....
Michigan was very segregated during the time Mitt was a boy. Laws were put in place to preserve that white privilege. Mitt is proud of where he came from. He killed several birds with the birtherism stone he threw. Base on many levels.
The answer is "No"--racism isn't okay even in levity.
Chris Matthews is a rude arrogant ass**** hack. I am offended at his suggestion that people who are on food stamps and welfare must be black. That is factually wrong and a blatant racist statement. Obama must still be giving him that familiar tingling up his leg, or was that his crotch? I forget.
This is the problem I have with these stinkin' politics. Chris Matthews, who I probably have never even listened to before, shows here he is a bully. He won't shut up and have an intelligent conversation with the other guy. If you have valid points and an intelligent argument for them, you have the ability to sit there and let the other guy talk and then come back with smart answers.All this hollering does nothing but hurt himself and whoever he is trying to defend.Bleck. I am so over this election already.
Just wondering why you haven't addressed Vice President Joe Biden's comment, "They're gonna put y'all back in chains!" And if you did, would you give it the label "That buffoon Biden"?
@AnneCI didn't/don't care.
@GOPer"... people who are on food stamps and welfare must be black. That is factually wrong and a blatant racist statement."You are correct, that statement is factually wrong, therein explains why I am not "offended" - although the stereotype would assume that I should be (that's racist).
I find it interesting that Republicans play the race card all day everyday; invite and then dare black people to be offended; and then turn around and say we are being divisive and making everything about race. The new Republican initiative appears to be play to emotional stereotypes, get a rise and then try to exploit. The fact that people are buying into reverse racism as a political strategy is pretty sad. If you plan to come to this blog to play out your initiatives, you won't be satisfied with the response, all you will be doing is putting your tactics on display.
