Liberals characterize conservatives as cavemen all the time. It is the same thing as a monkey analogy.

Libs used to call Bush a monkey

I'll bet that will go over real well if you tell a Jewish American to move on from the Holocaust.

Your getting to sensitive to be on a forums like this one if your looking for worship of your favorite Presidents.

Freedom of speech is tricky when personal feelings get involved. Sorry that your in opposition to the Constitution and prefer I call every President you agree with Dear Leader.

These are politicians not Mother Terresa, stop hyperventilating.

Waa!

Freedom of speech!

The right to display ignorance!

We’re talking about racism here and you sloppily push the goalpost to the Holocaust in order to make a really terrible false equivalency. Jesus, even for you this is poor quality trolling. Be better.

The Virginia gov was in a yearbook dressed as Kkk member lynching black person or as the black person.

Democrats don't have a problem with him.

Democrats gushed over segrgationists Byrd, Ernest Hollings, will Fulbright and others when they died.

You're totally missed the point, Moana in the Lone Star State.

So it is fair to tell people to move on from racism or other events and forget the past? You seem to have double standards depending on who or what group it is.

That was and still is typical Democrat thought and trash talk.

Ever hear some of the Racist sht the Clintons, the Kennedy's, Biden used to say ? Democrat LBJ was the worst.
Ronald Reagan left the Democratic Party way back in 1962. He led Democrats For Nixon in 1960.

He served as Republican Governor of California from 1967 to 1975 and was Governor when he made this overtly racist telephone call in 1971.

How about from Democrat LBJ? LBJ is why Nixon was elected. And for that matter Joe Biden. He was right there with them as they were friends.



You guys seem to turn a deaf ear to that.

It boils down to this.



Partisans of both parties are basically myopic dupes.



They gleefully point out the problems with the other side, but are remarkably blind to the failings of their own.



I mean, right now, Republicans are defending Trump tooth-and-nail for statements that, if Obama or Clinton had said it, they would have formed a lynch mob on the Ellipse.
