    Given my knowledge of US politics is not great I am not best placed to comment on this in particular. However- in general the party in power (or in question) always operates under different rules to the other- not a left vs right issue- but an us vs them issue.

    Racism isn`t political...you can be racist no matter what your political inclination is.

    That being said your political leaning may give statistical weight to whether or not that makes you more predisposed to racism...but still, the two are separate.

    trippyhippy9-"Racism has no political affiliation."

    No, but hypocrisy does. The point of the article is not whether racism exists, but the hypocrisy over how racism is ignored for one party, but found everywhere in the other (even when it needs to be made up).

    And it`s not limited to racism. Had any republican mayor had harrassed and assaulted women like San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, every womens` organization in the country would be on the news 24/7 screaming for his head. Strangely enough in this case they are absent.

    @whodat,

    While Republican`s can be hypocrits, too, they don`t have the media`s help.

    And many problems with your graphic:
    Which healthcare are Republicans trying to limit? (probably akin to the `reproductive rights`) Have all the abortions you want. I just expect you to pay for it.
    The `paying her less than a man for the same work` has been debunked.
    Restricting Labor Union rights = restricting labor union thugs.
    Voter ID laws do not equate to `voter suppresions`. It equals fair elections.

    Have you ever heard of a channel called Fox News?

    "Many Democrats ALSO oppose the America Jobs Act"

    Only THREE Democrats voted against the American Jobs Act, not even ONE Republican voted for it.

    whodat: Let me fix that list for you.

    #1 Republican respect the life of all human beings including the unborn, that includes unborn women as well.

    #2 Republicans just passed a sweeping educational funding bill in the HOR.

    #3 The supposed "American Jobs Act" was nothing but an isolationist, anti-trade bill that would`ve crippled our economy. Also, allowing people to freely choose whether or not they want to be unionized is called freedom, not restricting union rights.

    #4 We don`t believe any group should have "special rights" over and above other normal people.

    #5 Requiring a photo ID to vote is not "Voter suppression", it`s called eliminating election fraud. Also, if you come to America, learn f*cking English, every other immigrant culture did, so can hispanics.

    #6 Serial killers, murderers, rapists and pedos deserve the death penalty, if you don`t have respect for another human life, why should we value yours? Also, anyone can get emergency care at hospitals across the nation. Obamacare will segregate that care and make you go to their list of "Approved providers" that have bureaucrats deciding whether you live or die.

    #7 No republican I know of opposes veteran`s benefits, so that last one is just a "pants on fire" lie.

    You forgot to mention that the the bill was stalled by Majority leader Harry Reid (D) on September 27, 2011

    And yes, they could safely vote FOR it because they knew there was no way to get the 60 votes required.

    Doesn`t meant they like it.

    Do a Google search for "veterans benefits blocked by republicans" and you`ll find plenty of reading material.

    I know all of this as fact considering that I`m a veteran who is very active in the Veterans Administration and Wounded Warrior program.

    So Please stop your BS rhetoric about republicans not caring about veterans.

    Might I remind you that the VA was underfunded, in the 60`s, by LBJ and left a lot of crippled Vietnam veterans out in the cold.

    The lies in your inane contribution:

    Republicans don`t support restricting access to healthcare
    Republicans don`t support redefining rape
    Republicans don`t supporting paying women less

    Ah, damn it, it is all lies except the gay marriage thing, which is misrepresented as hypocrisy when really it is just a shell game, you make left-wing assumptions and call Republicans hypocrites because they disagree. Oh, and the healthcare thing which is basically the same issue, except we already know for sure that the Republicans were right.

    So you are, I presume, admitting that you have nothing to back your claim of hypocrisy, since you can only bring lies to the

    Without slant there is no article. The whole point is to present the slant in left-wing claims about racism. How can that be written without "slant"?

    As for "some" good points, can you indicate any single element there that is not a good point.

    Wow, got two in before I burst out laughing:

    "Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults think most black Americans are racist, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% say the same of most Hispanic Americans."

    Oh you mean polls of a nation that`s primarily White reveal that White people, in general, think they`re less racist than Black people? Wow, what an eye opener! It`s almost as if an opinion poll like this is inherently biased or something.

    @madduck: It used to be that way, but lately the MSM has championed ONE side of US politics, regardless of issue, who`s in office, public opinion OR common sense.
    ONE side is always correct, the other side is always evil.

    The internet is slowly ripping that apart:



    Showing the stories the MSM has decided to "ignore" or outright lie about.

    Does anyone else see the Irony, of a post which is talking about the double standards of Racism contrasting lefties and righties. See`s a bunch of lefties accusing righties of other stuff.

    Same happens in UK 3/4 Labourites have refferred to an area as desolate, when a Tory did it all hel broke loose. Tory makes a mistake between Northwest and North East, Tories don`t understand the North. It`s an insult to the North. Labour shadow minister mistakes Essex with Kent nothing....

    There is massive double standards between lefties accusations on righties....

    When i made the comment it was 1.6. Now people are upgrading it to counter me which is fine. But keep in mind 1 is the lowest possible score, there is no 0. So 2.1 is still a staggering vote of fail.

    The only reason that his right wing spam and Japanese weirdness s.hit gets posted, despite that the community as a whole resoundingly hates it, is because we come in here and tell him we hate it it and it gets lots of hits for comments and debates.

    jtrebowski: None of us are saying there are no bigots. There are bigots of all stripes and ideologies.

    There are also many black republicans like AlfonZo Rachel, Alan Keyes, Herman Cain, Michael Steele, Alan West and many others. Even MLK Sr. was a republican.

    Your, "Indulging in an attitude that has been prevelant for hundreds of years..." comment about republicans is idiotic. Republicans fought for the end of slavery and for civil rights, against the Democrats "Jim Crow" agenda for over a hundred years.

    The welfare state invented by Democrats did not liberate blacks, it instituted yet another form of slavery and ensured a perpetual voting block for themselves. It`s also a continuation of segregation through HUD policies and the Urban League.

    Just because the Democrats switched from a system of direct disenfranchisement to cradle to grave mollycoddling, doesn`t absolve them of their past.

    The repeated despicable attacks on prominent black Republicans is sufficient evidence of the REAL attitude of Democrats towards blacks. Blacks must either tow the Democrat party line by sitting in the back of the party bus or be falsely attacked and vilified by a complicit liberal media.

    I`d also add that in the liberal world it`s not about actual results, it`s about feelings and emotions and thinking you are doing the right thing. For example, how much crime has those Travon Martin protests stopped? Any? How many murders since then? We`ve had shootings every night for weeks on end in my home town of Milwaukee WI and another death last night. But no one wants to talk about the real problems because, go figure, then you are a racist. This attitude is certainly not being perpetuated by the right. But hey, protest on because at least you`ll "feel" good.

    How can that be written without "slant"?
    Carefully. These points can be made tactfully and in a manner that encourages discussion. Instead, this article is about attacking liberals.

    As for which points I take issue with - it`s both all and none. While the points are all good, at least in the sense that I agree with them, the premises he uses are pathetic.

    Liberals don`t think it`s OK to discriminate against white men; they think it`s OK to promote minorities to "level the playing field." While the effect might be the same, the reasoning is not; discrimination suggests a level of malice.

    Most of his points are just like this - the point is fine but the underlying assumptions are unfair.
