    Republicans are racist.
    Really? All of them?
    No.
    … as history bears out.

      You are correct about history.  I believe evil forces influence people who deceive others by subverting reality and demoralizing people by swaths.

      It does appear to be politically correct in this climate to demonize all republicans.

        Do not conservatives demonize Democrats? Was it not you who accuse all liberals of wanting to take everybody's guns on another thread? I find that statement 'alarmist'. How is it that conservatives are so different, particularly coming  from one who says she is non-aligned? I don't buy the idea that the libs are alarmist while when conservative sound the alarm it is justified?

          no. not me. Reps should not paint with a broad brush either.
          It is mistreating those who are not guilty of anything at all.
          Some need to be called out. Some do not at all.

            But they do, and therefore this already is a biased and skewed conversational point, isn't it?

              No. We should stop letting the media get away with it. Its not helpful.

          Actually, when I say liberals want to take the guns it's more like liberal politicians. But, you're right. Both ends demonize the other.

          I think, right now, since I voted for Trump and have been demonized, insulted, talked down toand generally had to deal with attempts at being brow beaten...all because most liberals refuse to attempt to understand why; I feel as if unfair prejudice, coupled with a complete lack of any attempt to think are all the left has to offer post election. Do forgive me for being a little thin skinned at the moment. You guys have done everything you can to scratch at those who don't agree with you pretty hard.

      It is that from our perspective, the GOP does not help. But the Jews, Hispanics and Asians say the same thing in greater numbers than those that do not.

      All people are to some extent racist, it is part of our unconscious programming.

    Do all Liberals say all Republicans are racists?
    I doubt it.
    Do all Republicans say all Liberals hate this country and are out to destroy it through high taxation and overbearing federal government?
    No.

      It sure make you wonder when you see a crowd of 95% whites at a Trump rally. With race protestor on the sidelines and some physical fights.

      More white Republican in the country side, not dealing as often with interracial relationships. A great lack of understanding of other cultures within America
