You should have heard all of the names I was called by black leftists once those on my FB friends list found out that I voted for Donald Trump in 2016. It was disgusting, but totally expected and predictable.

Sadly, this is becoming more and more true by the second. Far too many of today's left have nothing but contempt for our Constitution and founding principles and fathers.

1. OP says GOP(party), but some posters are going by ideology rather than party, so thats what i discussed. Because its far more accurate to discuss ideology than party ID.

2. liberal is absolutely an ideology, and most black people dont identify as such.

https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tan...views-liberal/

3. I understand there is a difference between what someone identifies as, vs what they actually are. Black people fall into the category of Being Democrats by identification, but not actually being liberal by ideology.



Again I disagree. I think we place people into political boxes until they do something we really like or dont like. Black people being the best example. When conservatives want to court black people. they always say "you are conservative and agree with us more than Democrats" but anytime a black person commits a crime, they blame it on that persons' "liberalism", which as I already explained, that person probably isnt liberal at all

the conservative black guys who beat up a gay person dont get labeled as Conservative, even though thats exactly what they are. We just dont link those type of things to political violence or separate skin color and reprieved ideology., we just label those people crazy and move on.

I mean a guy in Texas just killed 22 people........

To be clear, im not even arguing that we should label bad people by ideology. Im more or less saying dont exclude people to make your numbers look better or treat all cases the same.

Same goes for COnservatives overall who use passive aggressive language to attack black people who vote for Democrats.
Awww, thanks! That's the nicest thing anyone has said to me all day!!!

I disagree with #1 - I think it's cleaner to discuss party affiliation because we don't really know the ideology of people posting here. Just because I'm a moderate Dem doesn't mean I'm against a lot of social programs that liberals support, but at the same time, I believe in laws and want to plug the endless flow of illegals so we can take care of Americans.

I get #2 and #3.

We'll have to agree to disagree on the rest of this. I think ideology is often tied to culture. Hispanics are culturally conservative and are pro-life, but the social justice aspect has them voting more often for Democrats. The more conservative culture of black people means you may not find them completely accepting of gay people. That doesn't mean they will change their voting habits.

I think people being targeted is based on different things. Black guys beating up a transgendered woman is no different than a redneck beating up a transgendered woman. It's not based on politics - it's based on culture. Neither culture is all that accepting of transgendered people.

When I talk about the attacks of liberals, I'm discounting the above. Spitting at people, removing hats, beating people up, this is all about politics, and there are far more cases of that coming from liberals than from people on the right towards liberals. I don't know how you can deny that.

I think those people are nuts, I really do.

As a liberal, you don't want those people to stop this nonsense?

So says radio host Dawn Elliot, in yet another spectacularly intolerant racist screed from a high profile Democrat leftist. If you want racism and intolerance, you need look no further than this.

Why do these people have to make EVERYTHING about race? What about his professional credentials? What about freedom to choose? What about civility? What about consideration for others?

If the Democrat candidate Greg Stumbo is a better candidate for this job than Daniel Cameron (R-KY), then let him prove it without this kind racist vitriol.
Um, it wasn't candidate Stumbo who said it.

The radio host is an *******.

Surely we can all agree on those two simple statements.

Why not just leave all the other stuff out of it?

I'm sorry to hear that. It's a disgrace that any American wouldn't be respectful of the rights of others to make the choices that are best for them. And this is where I get so ticked off because these same liberals preach that they not only want people to be tolerant, they want people to be accepting. Where is the acceptance and tolerance in this?

These losers and the politicians like them have hijacked the party. When Nancy Pelosi can't keep them in line, there's no hope.

Again, that's your prospective. Mine as a black man living in the deep South is the opposite direction.

Conservatives are far worse.

False, but keep living that illusion. You seem to enjoy the victim status it accords you.

Thing is you don't have to use personal anecdotes to see this imbalance; there's a reason why I generally did not rely on personal anecdotes when giving my examples in my response to you . . . everyone has their stories. We see it plain as day in the media, and the lopsidedness is clear as day. As is the hypocrisy in the lack of condemnation over things said by certain people vs. by other people.

I've been exposing the "tolerance" line from leftists for the lie that it is for decades now. Leftists are only tolerant of those who think like them. For all others, they will "shut it down" and openly "resist." Well, at least modern day leftists. I have no problem with leftists of old.
