That is just practically written into their ideology.

This is semi-serious btw. It's something that seems strange to me. You'd think that entire species would cease to exist if other ones evolved from them."

Unfair economic standards for minorities caused by Right-wing policies?

lol. right wing economic policies don't actively discriminate against any group. conservative social policies generally do, and some economic policies endorsed by conservatives may, but laissez faire policies don't.

also. LOL @ politically correct terrorist. sad...
evidently i only come to ddo to avoid doing homework...

some are, just as some liberals are, some communists are, some fascists are, some anarchists are, some [instert group here] (that reminded me of INH, only IGH, lol) are.

but to broad brush an entire group as "racist" or "sexist" or any other -ist is bad logic unless it is expressively written into their doctrine (rather then by the people that follow said doctrine).

Yea, I have plenty of friends who are politically conservative, but they're very open to multiculturalism and such. So no, ideology has little to do with it. Nazis seem to be a good example. While they're fairly progressive in some areas we all know they're discriminatory. :)

As for the video, that was ridiculous. First of all, the guy was a nut. But second, the man's paranoia about not appearing racist was a product of knee-jerk race-baiting one faces from the Left when critical of a black person/aspect of "black" culture.

In fact, what was most ridiculous was how the "news" feature still tried to make the bigger story whether or not the potential assassin was actually racist.

I thought the preview for the next segment, "Keeping your child away from Ayn Rand," revealed even more about that media outlet.

The Republican Party has a longer, more productive history of Civil Rights support than any other American political party. Perhaps Martin Luther King, Jr., best outlined the typical conservative's outlook on race: Look not to the color of one's skin, but to the content of one's character, to gauge individual worth.

As for economics, I think no demographic would gain more from privatized social security than minorities; but, as usual, the Democratic Party fears this because it depends on class warfare for so much of its platform.

I didn't watch the video until now, but DUDE. It's the freaking ONION! It's not a serious news outlet. This didn't actually happen. It's a joke. And you fell for it.

Policial Social Policies not Political Economic Policies. There's a "y" axis for a reason.

Ha, and so I did.

I don't read/watch The Onion consistently, but I have before. That said, what's funny is how close to actual news it seemed (aside from its own farcical sake), even with the "coming up next segment" -- that I didn't even suspect a joke. :)

All conservatives are racist.

I find it funny that people make these assumptions about the conservative party. It's ridiculous the immaturity that can arouse in someone against someone who believs differently. If I don't vote for Obama it must mean that I don't like him because he is black right?

Then it is funny when conservative senators suggest the president send troops and resources to darfur. Because we are all just racist bastards.

Any reasoning behind that claim, Reasoning?

Lol the funny thing is that reasoning never provides reasoning behind any of his claim. His name is a paradox.

Or "ironic" I think would be the more fitting word.

Where'd you get that idea?
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

These kind of people exist on both sides. The left has people that you described, and the right has glen beck-y type people. A generalization to 1 party really ignores all the crazy people on the other side.

I don't keep up with pltx of darfur, but does conservatives usually not advocate assisting in darfur? I think many people tried to get Bush to go into darfur. Was it percieved as an act to offset racial guilt then? If not, why should it be percieved any differently with Obama in office?

It's not perceived differently now that obama is in office, and that was never the argument. But it was a conservative organization that funded darfurs program and generally provided all the sponsorship. It's initial goal wasn't to offset racial guilt, and that is a rather absurd argument. It had nothing to do with the race or culture, rather that we wanted to help others.You can practically correlate the whole situation to hurricane katrina.
