Check the 2012 election returns, cruzo...

I AM the mainstream.

Your brand of conservatism is on the fringe and it's costing your party massive support.

Why do you think only about a quarter of American voters now identify themselves as "Republican" and fewer than 8% identify with the TEA Party.

So again, before demanding all African Americans adhere to your idea of normal -- maybe you should ask your own people to conform.

Personally, I don't think anyone should have to conform to a set standard, cruzo. That sounds a lot like fascism to me.

I believe we should all be treated equally without having to meet any kind of political test.

*** sad grateful deadline chooses childish insults- ***

Only you, con, would think that calling out someone for posting something that made no sense and ended with the word "moron" is a "childish insult."

Please don't get nasty over my putting "con" and "think" in the same sentence. I already know they don't go together.

cruiser, your last post was beyond ridiculous. It's abundantly obvious that you're stuck as hard as glue to racial stereotypes.

You're not going to find buy-in here, no matter how much you screech, demean and insult. The rest of us have been out in the world, and we know better. The United States was created for the opposite of cultural conformity, as a home for those who refused to conform.

At your advanced age, with the years running out, you still have ta little time left to learn about people who are different from you. Take it, and then you might leave this world calling yourself a highly trained cultural genius.

"I AM the mainstream"

No, pal...what you are is part of the radical left wing detritus that was swept in on Obama's coat tails. The vote was heavily skewed to the left by never-before-seen voters who may never turn out in those numbers again. It was an anomaly that will be corrected.

yeah.. it'll be corrected, all right..

next time, the margins will be even greater..

face it, cruiztwit..your party and its "philosophy" are being.. have been.. soundly rejected by the overwhelming majority of americans..

2014 is going to be a disaster for you and yours..

wake up.. smell the coffee..

wow..that is all I can say about cruiser's original post. I am not even going to waste my time writing a detailed post condemning his racism because he is so out of touch with reality and never listens.

"If you're going to criticize some blacks because they don't adhere to YOUR "norms""

oh the hypocrisy off the left....

what does the left do to to black republicans, hispanics and those who choose not to follow YOUR "norms"? look at what the left did to RGIII.....

that was based on a rumor.....

sorry libs, can't have it both ways. before speaking of racism-you on the left should look at yourselves first.

grateful, sheep's will be safe tonight.

cruise refers to Obama winning in the singular; "that was swept in on Obama's coat tails" "The vote" "It was an anomaly that will be corrected"

An anomaly that happened twice? As in two times in a row? Well, yea, since he can't run again (good thing for the GOP) I guess it will be "corrected". Still hoping for that Romney landslide are we?

*** grateful, sheep's will be safe tonight. ***

Gee, con, why not try aiming your comments at the posters whose material you quote? It'll make it look like you can read and remember who posted what.

Perhaps you're so fixated on disliking me that you forget there are other posters here. Lose the fixation, and you'll gain a whole big batch of people at whom to aim your useless drivel.

This is scary

"An anomaly that happened twice?" I know your warped mind so well I predicted...almost verbatim...what you'd respond with.

Yes, the anomalous radical left vote occurred twice...both times for an individual who is an anomaly as president. He will never run again, therefore the chance of that voting pattern repeating is slim.

But that doesn't obscure the fact that Obama and his followers and swallowers are FAR from mainstream. To quote a brilliant sage, "Pal, you're so far out on the left edge if you trimmed your toenails you'd lose your grip and fall off."

of the mainstream who elected Obama twice.

"mainstream who elected Obama"

Not even close.

that's your problem -- and the problem of your whole party.

You can't accept the fact that your side is out of touch. Some of your leaders realize that the only way you can win without accepting the diversity of America is to gerrymander Congressional districts, rig the electoral college and deny minorities access to the polls.

But you apparently don't even realize that.

You're out of touch with America, cruzo.

Change just two words in cruzo's thesis in this thread and see if it applies:

"I will state unequivocally that TEA PARTIERS who are educated, speak proper English, dress in the norms the majority of the society and do not exhibit belligerence toward other races, etc., do NOT find it difficult to succeed in today's United States."


1) Educated -- judging by the poor grammar in their signs and uneducated claims such as, "Obama's a secret Muslim," and "Where's the birth certificate," TEA Partiers don't come across as educated.

2) "speak proper English" -- again, have you read the signs?

3) "dress in the norms the majority of the society" -- you mean wearing t-shirts that read "It's Called the WHITE House for a Reason" or other racist and hateful messages? Standard fare at the TEA Party rallies I've seen here in DC. Or would that be carrying a pistol on their hip or a military wounding rifle over their shoulder? Again, more TEA Party behavior outside the "norms" of American society.

4) " do not exhibit belligerence toward other races," -- well, there you have it. Cruzo's whole post is belligerence toward minorities. What about the TEA Party protests that paint Obama as a pimp, or TEA Partiers who tried to pass off photos of convicts as Trayvon Martin?

IF cruzo can apply these exact same qualities in condemnation toward the TEA Party -- then it's not racism.

Can you condemn these qualities of the TEA Party, cruzo?

cruiser Posted - 8/28/2013 11:32:19 AM | show profile | flag this post

Can you condemn the EXACT SAME attitudes and actions

exhibited by left wingers and Democrats of ALL races and ethnicities in numbers that are ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE GREATER than the small handful of kooks on the conservative side?

The answer is: Yes, you can...but will not. It's not your purpose to draw uncomplimentary...but dead accurate...comparisons to YOUR political brethren but to disingenuously denigrate the tiny number of extremists as if they were representative of the entire political right. Of course they are not.

Which is a long-winded way around to saying: No, he can't/won't condemn those qualities in Tea Partiers.

you started this with an attack on minorities.

You won't apply the same standards to the base of the GOP.

The simplest way to test a statement for racism is to replace the group described with another group -- and see if the statement applies equally.

By discriminating, you have proven your post to be racist.

"you started this with an attack on minorities"

You need some remedial reading comprehension help, pal. You can apply whatever rhetorical stunts you can dream up but that doesn't substitute for ACTUAL UNDERSTANDING of the English language on your part.

just because one doesn't choose to follow the liberal meme doesn't equate to "a attack on minorities".

no, con.. it shouldn't..

but somehow, with you two..

it always does..

No, pal, it doesn't

That's a strawman you and your leftist brethren use to keep from having to confront real issues.

you clearly stated that to be taken seriously, blacks should assimilate into the white, conservative "norms" you dictated.

That's racism in it's purest form.

BTW, I see where Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor were invited to speak during today's 50th anniversary ceremonies of the March on Washington.

The fact they turned it down speaks volumes about where the GOP stands 50 years later.

"speaks volumes"

waiting to the last minute to send invites, failing to invite black republicans/conservatives, comparing scotus to the kkk, lying and fear mongering proves the more things change the more they stay the same with the left.

You need to walk away from this thread. You don't even know the definition of the word and for that reason there's no way you could add anything meaningful.

Poor cruiser. Too bad his original post can't be erased. It's really difficult to backpedal when that racism-filled post is the first thing readers see every time they open the thread.
