No. He's entitled to his perception. I have a very different perception of the rhetoric of hate written all over the Internet every day, and shouted out at townhall meetings and by one in Congress, as well as what the intended message is when people come to political rallies with GUNS strapped to their legs. Lunacy, ignorance, and racism, IMO, are the foundations of such expressions.

hey, if I was the President, I would be like, 'that's all you can find wrong with me, I'm black? I'm must be doing pretty damn good and have nothing to worry about from people like you' Most people aren't like this though, I mean most people that are against him are genuinely so, I however am for him and genuinely for him, not for freebies or handouts to people who don't want to do anything, this is about peoples lives, and whether or not we are going to help those less fortunate...but through conversations with people that are against him, it is for heartfelt reasons as well. Even if you don't like Pelosi, you have to admit she believes in her causes

I'll give him credit for opening the door with China, ignoring them made no sense. Vietnam however, I remember reading some time ago, and I'm not going digging through that can of worms again, there was some pretty compelling evidence from former staff, memos, etc. the end of the war was manipulated to benefit the re-election campaign. That would make him one of history's true monsters.

Actually, the whole Milk killing was a workplace situation that has become a cause for gay rights because Milk was gay. It was tragic, but Milk was not killed because he was gay, he just happened to be gay.

And if you truly want to stop the hate speech, you might want to address Pelosi and her friends on the Left directly - they've spewed some of the most hateful and insulting accusations I've heard lately.

he's entitled to his perception, but we conservatives are not entitled to ours.

double standard, much?

and why are you still pooping your pantaloons over some black guy - who brought a gun that most definitely was not strapped to his back [why this non-existant 'strapping' has you worked into such a lather, i'll never understand] ? if you don't agree with arizona's open-carry law, why don't you take it up with their state legislature?

"double standard, much"? What???

The people I have seen on TV who attended various political rallies across the country are white people. Specifically, last night I saw film of a white guy with a gun strapped to his leg. Is there another way to describe a gun holstered to someone's leg?

I don't care about Arizon's open-carry law.......I'm talking about common sense. When people carry guns to political rallies there is ONLY ONE interpretation which can be made as to what the message is......VIOLENCE. No, I am not a supporter of taking your guns away from you either.

If you really have nothing to say --don't say anything.
Men are the victims of violence all the time. Number one profile of a murder victim is young, black and male. Some 58,000 young men died in Viet Nam, not women, men. In wars all over the world and throughout history, young men die. This isn't an issue for most people because males have traditionally been viewed as disposable. Since Ms. Mitchell doesn't appear to be raising a stink about male deaths, she would seem to be in the disposable male crowd.

Pelosi can see the end of the tunnel and the end of her power and job. That MUST be frightening for her---poor women.

Go to MSNBC for pictures of white guys carrying guns at political rallies. Chris Matthews "Hardball" show in particular.

Yes, I saw the video of the black panthers with guns. I still find it not only irresponsible but, as I said, sheer lunacy for PEOPLE to bring guns to political events. It is, IMO, a receipe for violence, tradegy, and disaster. There's a good reason why it is not "polite" to discuss politics or religion at social events........topics are too hot!

Btw, calling a woman "hysterical" is soooo obviously patriarchal and such a sad effort to "stop" her. LOL Doesn't work on me. How are things over at stormfront these days? What do those guys have planned next? And how are those PLEs working out for them?
CNN would not show the black man with a gun on his hip, they just showed his gun and made it seem like he was white. No face shots.

What if a woman called another woman hysterical. Is that patriarchal? just checking.
