    Thank you for posting, Mr. Merchant of Racism.

    That's right, the Tea Party will put you in the same chains that your ancestors were in should they gain sufficient legislative power.



    Soo you are ok with the further whitewashing of American history?

    "Let's not focus on colonial slavery to the exclusion of focusing on the actual founding of the nation." Racism!!

    It'd be like having a chapter on Hitler's vegetarianism. It's true, but it's ancillary to the point of why we talk about Hitler.

    Just another example of the fact that the Tea Party are nothing new but just the same old white, evangelical racists that used to make up the "Moral Majority" and the "Christian Coalition." The only difference is that instead of having their strings pulled by Jerry Falwell, but by the Koch brothers.

    I'm surprised Ralph Reed hasn't gotten a job with them yet.

    And being a vegetarian proves that obvious connection between me and hitler!

    Yes. MSNBC does provide excellent facts that pierce through the marketing of the lunatic fringe.

    I wonder WHY people bring up that Hitler was a vegetarian.

    I often wonder WHY people bring up that Hitler was a vegetarian.


    The same reason people say he was gay, vegetarians overwhelmingly lean left, it should be easy to go from there.

    That is complete and total bullshit and you know it, this country was able to prosper the way it did BECAUSE of slavery and it's treatment of other minorities.

    That's one thing I really love about leftists and liberal people in general, they seem to care more about their health and are conscious of what they are eating. I can always get along on diet issues since I'm a strict vegan.

    Yawn.

    That must be why the North was the industrial powerhouse leading up to the Civil War, and why the South has sucked ass for 150 years. Because treating minorities badly equals big money!!

    If treating black people like shit were all it took to rule the world, Uganda would be a superpower.

    Ummm.... that would be "country's" and not "countries" Mr. Racism. Idiot.


    You've got a lot to say, and none of it is about the topic. Why am I not surprised?

    The Tea Party and education do not go hand-in-hand. It's like water and oil.
