Of course, the fact that he resorts to these kinds of distractions demonstrates that Ned realizes just how damning those survey answers really are.

Congrats, Ned! You're actively working to dumb down the country. How does it feel to be un-American?


It feels great to let the statements of leading Democrats do the talking. They pay lip service to racial equality to get votes, but the slave-owning, water cannon-shooting roots of the Democrat party remain frighteningly close to the surface.

Ned, you still living in the 1950s? Don't you know the Dixiecrats have all gone over to the GOP? Ever hear of the Republican's Southern Stategy? It worked.

Who is behind Voter ID laws and whose votes are they trying to suppress?

Um, Hank? None of those quotes are from the 1950s.

You can get back to your afternoon six-pack and model railroad layout now.

Please explain why the vast majority of black Americans have voted for Democratic candidates for at least the last half century. (By the way, the answer isn't Obama.)

Well, that. Also, too, the Democrats have seduced them into dependency on Big Government.

In all seriousness, there is a pervasive racism that taints all of American society. It affects everyone; yes, even Democrats.

The difference is that Democrats generally see this as a problem to be solved. The Republicans see this a tool to exploit for political power.

Racism also affects the United States ability to occupy non-white countries as evidenced by the latest atrocities in Afghanistan.

Yes, please explain. Since the civil rights era being a Black Democrat means not talking about race, or the continued erosion of civil rights, if you can avoid it.

I guess people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are imaginary characters.

Is everything gloom and doom in your world? You live in a fantasy world where everything has to be as far left as possible. It grows tiresome.

They are imaginary characters in your fantasy land, yes. Sharpton and Jackson are nothing but tools for the right wing money establishment, President Obama's co-optation operatives, debasing and marginalizing the civil rights agenda of Black activists. As for Rev. Al, it's interesting what cocaine and a brush with the FBI will do.

Stella seems to think that black Americans have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats for at least the last half century because they are ignorant dupes.

No racism there.

So using your twisted logic; when the choice is between a crazy, ignorant, racist Republican who trolls for white racist votes and promises to give banksters, polluters, and corporate criminals a free pass; or a sane, smart, level-headed free market Liberal Democrat who does exactly the same thing, no matter what he promised, and you vote to re-elect the Democrat, that makes you a ignorant dupe and a racist, right?

You're stupid and ignorant if you think Obama would do EXACTLY the same thing as the 3 Repubs.

I get it, you hate everyone unless they do EXACTLY what YOU want them to do. You know what? Never gonna happen, so enjoy being miserable the rest of your life.
