Mark Meadows: Birther

Mark Meadows (Repug, North Carolina) claimed during the hearing yesterday that he isn't a racist. Daily Kos quotes him during his 2011 campaign:

It’s interesting, that when the more we find out, the more we realize how wrong the direction we are going. And so what we are going to do is take back our country. 2012 is the time we are going to send Mr. Obama home to Kenya or wherever it is. We’re gonna do it.

I guess your not one for the truth you believe in the lies your democrat group puts out.
So I used one of your favorite media outlets as to not have you call it right wing.

Since your so anti-racist and you hate the white man why not say anything about the Virginia gov? Why not mention anything about his wife handing out cotton to black students asking them to imagine they were slaves???

Maybe because it doesn't fit your bullshit. Your racisim and disagreements as well as political views are not based on facts or truth. Your crap is strictly selective and based on party lines.

"I will vote for whoever the Democrats nominate, including Harris, since any Democrat will be much, much better than anyone the Repugs nominate."

I wonder why the words facts,honesty, best for the country and its citizens are not included in that quoted statement?

When the snow melts the shit will show. Andthe reason why Trump won and will win again in 2020 is because the democrats snow has melted.

"Facts or truth"? I don't see any facts in this comment, except a reference to the Governor of Virginia.

I am in fact a white man, a demographic that, alas, has a poor record historically on race in the United States. For example, there's your Repugnant Party's Southern Strategy practiced since Richard Nixon took advantage of the Democratic Party's support for Civil Rights and voting rights for black people in the South. Your party is outdoing Nixon in its zeal to undermine voting rights based on the phony illegal voting claim.

The Governor of Virginia? I had barely heard of him until the blackface episode emerged. Even he was embarrassed by that. Recall that Southern Democrats were the racist party until Nixon and the Republican Party deliberately adopted that label.

I'll vote for whoever the Democrats nominate because it's been clear for a long time that the Republican Party is not only the racist party; it's also the party of misogyny, homophobia, climate change denial, Christian religious crackpots, and gun nuts.

All of the declared---and the undeclared, for that matter---Democrats running for president in 2020 are morally and intellectually superior to the contemptible morons in charge of the Republican Party, not to mention the Mob Boss himself.

Oh I see blackface was embarrassed so it's ok now because he's a democrat? And his wife with cotton is all good? What about Mary Ann lisanti from Maryland your newspaper the NYtimes wrote about using the N word? Go ahead Mr non racist party democrat Mr huge anti-racist. Go ahead say something? You slam republicans on your blog with racisim all day long with no facts. Yet these three democrat incidents with proof your silent because he was embarrassed already? That's all you got? Proves my point.

Those incidents are the exception, not the rule like they are in your Repugnant Party, the party of the Southern Strategy.

Repugnant hero Ronald Reagan made his first campaign appearance in 1980 where three civil rights workers were killed in Mississippi in 1964. Gee, I wonder what message he was sending to white voters in the United States?:

On August 3, 1980, Ronald Reagan gave his first post-convention speech at the Neshoba County Fair after being officially chosen as the Republican nominee for President of the United States. He said, "I believe in states' rights...I believe we have distorted the balance of our government today by giving powers that were never intended to be given in the Constitution to that federal establishment." He went on to promise to "restore to states and local governments the power that properly belongs to them."

I'm sorry just the exception? Is that all you have to say Mr anti-racist? The exception that's it? Forget Reagan and forget your history for the second time on this post. Your the real deal anti racist and all you have to say is "the exception"? I guess democrats get a free pass.

I often criticize Democrats on this blog; San Francisco Democrats for their historical failure on homelessness, quality of life issues, and for anti-carism and the bicycle delusion. I criticize state Democrats for their shameful support for the dumb high-speed rail project.

But national Democrats are good on race issues, unlike your party. Of course you'd like to "forget" your party's ugly history on race, but I and the overwhelming majority of Democrats won't do that.

Your either anti-racist or your not. You either condem all racisim or you don't.

You on the other hand have "exceptions". That's the real bullshit.

Part of your bullshitter problem is apparently a reading disorder. Please cite one of my "exceptions."
