  1. He’s black, so it must be true….

  2. THe historical FACT is that the Democrats owned slaves, dragged the entire country into civil war to keep slaves and then acted sore losers and created an abusive and degrading system of oppression to maintain as much of the slave staus quo as they could, for decades.

    The truth of this transcends anyone person or time, but when an American speaks it, it should be taken with a basic respect for the dignity a human being deserves.

    How do all these hypocrites cry racist and peace to everyone else while being member of a political party with that much blood, abuse and violence in its past … and present?

  3. Jim this is my point by using the terms

    “boy” and others. Left is trying to define the

    Terms you can use by striping the right of the

    Ability to use language. PC is just self censorship.

    Please do not fall for this ploy.

    The left uses this all the time, Rush even has a

    Parody of Sharpton and Jackson singing MC

    Hammers “can’t touch this” cept it is

    ” can’t say that” get it? Language
    Is a weapon.

  4. self interest always has a way of creeping into even the most well intentioned programs.
    [[Now in this time of unprecedented prosperity, we are in danger of losing the poor. What do you suppose the employee of the poverty industry's reaction is? Not to exalt in the fact that poverty is being diminished but rather to worry whether their reason for being (and their jobs) will disappear.]] from 1999…interestingly, i used to refer to “poverty industry” under wiki that was a bit more detailed on who benefited from poverty and unless my eyes are off their write-up has been scaled back megaly.

  5. The left complains the hardest

    When they get nailed with the

    truth, Jim learn to wear the arrows with pride.

    Not trying to be nasty, just thought provoking.

    Powder is dry

  6. Nothing is quite as satisfying as seeing Col. West making liberals’ heads explode.

    He is quite right about the desirability of giving people opportunity instead of checks. My only issue with him is the notion that the federal government should be playing a role in enterprise zones and other opportunity-growing actions. That is for the states to do. The federal government’s only job in this regard is to get out of the way.

    Nice attempt to rewrite history, your comment takes Northern war propaganda at face value without considering that the South had solid legal, moral, and economic reasons for secession which had nothing to do with slavery. Even the name “Civil War” is misleading, since the war wasn’t about two sides fighting to run the central government as in the English or Roman civil wars. The South attempted a peaceful secession from federal control, an ambition no different from the original American plea for independence from Britain.

    In effect, the South was being looted to pay for the North’s early version of industrial policy. The battle over the tariff began in 1828, with the “tariff of abomination.” Thirty year later, with the South paying 87 percent of federal tariff revenue while having their livelihoods threatened by protectionist legislation, it became impossible for the two regions to be governed under the same regime. The South as a region was being reduced to a slave status, with the federal government as its master.

    Before the war, Lincoln himself had pledged to leave slavery intact, to enforce the fugitive slaves laws, and to support an amendment that would forever guarantee slavery where it then existed. Neither did he lift a finger to repeal the anti-Negro laws that besotted all Northern states, Illinois in particular.

    Slavery didn’t become an issue in the civil war until Lincoln a Republican decided to use slaves as cannon fodder because the north was losing the war.

  8. Saw interview of Col McSally. Her body language

    Tells me she is a liar, she’s a plant, don’t know or

    Care from which party. She’s a liar.

  9. Ripped, you bring up some excellent points. But (there’s always a “but”) the inescapable fact is that the “peculiar institution” of slavery weighed on the South like an albatross around the neck, and it was slavery that doomed the Confederacy.

    The reason the Confederacy could not get Britain to aid the cause was slavery. Lincoln craftily used this in constructing the Emancipation Proclamation, effectively making it impossible, for moral reasons, for Britain to join with the South.

    Of course none of this relieves the north of its unholy complicity in slavery, since the northern merchants were the ones running the Triangle Trade of molasses, rum, and slaves, getting rich off the misery of fellow human beings.

    And on the flip side, none of that foul northern behavior can excuse the Democrat party for its role in creating the KKK, and instituting decades of forced segregation and permanent substandard status for blacks. Today’s Dems are doing little better for blacks, by working as hard as they can to keep them dependent on government and weakening the black community’s social structure to the point that upward mobility is regarded as little more than a pipe dream. It’s insidious, and reprehensible.

  10. demoturds keeping all blacks as slaves still….slaves to free handouts…welfare…housing…etc…until people get off their A$$ES and do something for themselves this country will continue on a downward spiral

  11. @1RedBeard,

    “And on the flip side, none of that foul northern behavior can excuse the Democrat party for its role in creating the KKK, and instituting decades of forced segregation and permanent substandard status for blacks.

    I couldn’t agree with you more.

    My point is that unfortunately some people believe the revisionist history taught in the public school system.

    Nice pompous bloviator try to change the subject. We are not discussing states rights pro and con. We are discussing the role the Democrat Party played in maintaining slavery.’

    The Democrat Party politially manuvered to maintain slavery, politically manuvered to admit new states expressly as ‘slave’ and ‘free states’ to preserve political power for slaving, so indeed slavery was a KEY dividing issue.

    The issue is the Democrat Party and it’s history of rapidly supporting slavery and the oppressive and abusive laws after to maintain power structures, including the violent and terrorist KKK.

    One has noticed the South has moved on quite well without it, but the Democratic Party seems to bitter cling to the same caste system-like worldview.

  13. Allen West is just a bomb thrower. I never hear him talk in a directed logical fashion. He just throws out insults.

    Good instincts. I said also the other day the Dems are playing all sorts of games in AZ, so verify every claim (D) and (R) in their playbook can be interchangeable.

  15. #12 Spot on-
    Jeremiah Haralson(Black Alabama Congressman during reconstruction who was himself of real slave until 1865)warned of that exact outcome- a new form of slavery- IF the Democrats found themselves in control. Look where we are!

  16. #15 tadcf, You demonize without addressing specific issues, in order to avoid those issues. If Mr. West is illogical and undirected, it should be easy for you and the other lefty, anti-Americans out there to refute the SUBJECT, rather than the MAN.

    If you are unable to intelligently address the issue(s), then stfu.

    If you demonize Mr. West, you must also condemn Bill Cosby and ALL blacks who have spoken for years on the same subject, with the same conclusions as Mr. West. With you as an example, lefties have never stopped choosing race-baiting over debate.

  17. Allen West: “… and that’s why we are going to have another Conservative Black Forum in May.”

    Go get ‘em , Allen.
