    ” all white racists are right-wingers”

    I know for a fact that is false.

    Nef says, “I know for a fact that [all white racists are right-wingers] is false.”

    Since you know “for a fact” that it is false, you can therefore give us an example proving your point. So let’s see it. (Keep in mind that it says ” ‘white’ racists”.)

    Craig – You are either blind, incredibly stupid, or the most naive person in the country if you actually believe that asinine quote. I’ve met white left wing racists. They’re out there.

    If the saying went most white racists are right wingers, I would reluctantly agree. But it doesn’t. It says ALL. Wake up.

  4. 2 words Craig, George Wallace.
    P.S. I’m a moderate liberal.

    Nef,

    I’m still waiting for some examples that support your statement. So far, the only one who is “blind, incredibly stupid, or the most naive person in the country…” is you.

    Rick,

    George Wallace wasn’t a liberal. He was a Dixie-crat, just like Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond were. They all turned Republicans in the 1960s to protest the Civil Rights Act, but they were never liberals.

  6. Craig: You’re right, of course, about George Wallace.

    He was as right-wing as they come, as were most, but not all, of the Southern Democrats of his generation. To suggest that he was anything but a far-rightist is foolish.

    Craig – Let’s look at it from a couple of different angles. Left vs. Ring wing has different interpretations depending on who you are talking to. For example, for some people, the only thing that matters is abortion. Everything else is immaterial. You have pro-life right wingers, and you have pro-choice left wingers. Again, for some people, that’s the only issue that matters. If you are pro-choice, you are left-wing, and either hated or loved depending on the individual making the assessment. Obviously, the world is not so easily defined. There are some pro-life Democrats, and there are some pro-choice Republicans (like yours truly.)

    For most people, we divide left vs. right wing on how we perceive the role and responsibility of government. Left wingers want to see more government services to help better society, right wingers want a more limited government with more individual accountability and responsibility.

    So you mean to tell me that every single person out there who happens to have white pigmentation in their skin that perceives government from a more left leaning point of view is not a racist? And that the only people who are white racists are people that believe in a more limited government with more responsibility? To that I say BULL.

    In this case my insults are well justified.

    Further, there is a growing awakening in the black community that it’s really White Liberals that are the most racist. Dr. Carson gave the most public example, but he’s hardly the only one. Many others share his thoughts. I encourage you to check out the writings of the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives, the Black Tea Patriots, Hip Hop Republican, David Webb, American Conservatives of Color, and Project 21 and get their opinion on the whole matter.

    Nef,

    Per your 3rd paragraph, we’re still waiting for you to provide some proof. You stated, “I know for a fact blah, blah, blah.” You may be correct, but you have not even come close to providing any proof to support your “fact”. So where is it?

    However, your tap dancing is great!
