Re: “Did the Mother Emanuel tragedy change anything?

"Of course things changed. Whites now have to second guess themselves and be quiet for fear of being called a racist."

Yeah, being white is real hard these days. I'm so sorry for you. The struggle is real.

Re: “Did the Mother Emanuel tragedy change anything?

I wonder who Mr. Moredock blames gentrification of Charleston on?
Republicans?

In 1980 the population of Charleston was majority black with 2/3 of the residents African American. By 2010 only half of the the total number of blacks present in 1980 were in the city was now 2/3 white.

Certainly the visionary leader of the city, elected in 1975, supported and encouraged policies encouraging this rampant gentrification, while receiving a huge amount of black votes and support. yet I have never heard Mr Moredock mention it. If the Demographic trend continues there will be very blacks at all on the peninsula by in another ten years or so.

Re: “Did the Mother Emanuel tragedy change anything?

LiberalNeodipshit missed the part 80 years ago where the Democratic and Republican parties switched platforms entirely. Strom Fucking Thurmond was once a Democrat until he switched parties out of opposition to the Civil Rights Act.

Re: “Did the Mother Emanuel tragedy change anything?

Sorry, but I must remind you that during the time period of segregation in South Carolina the Confederate flag was flown by loyalists to the Democrat Party. It wasn't until the abolishment of segregation and Jim Crowe laws in the South that Republican support grew. The Republican Party passed the 14th and 15th amendments along with a very long list of Civil Rights legislation. I dare say that the Republican Party led the Civil Rights movement back when it was an authentic movement and not some co-opted struggle for homosexuals and perverts to get unneeded attention. We can get into the Dixiecrat myth and argue over how a few racist Democrats switched over to the Republican party to support Barry Goldwater despite most of the racist politicians in office remaining loyal Democrats and argue over this fantasy idea that all the racists illogically left the political party with a history of racism (Democrats) to join the political party with a history of civil rights activism (Republicans), but this may not be the best forum for it and I've spent years debunking the modern Democrat party's revisionist history to cover up its shameful past. And I get it. Democrats need to keep blacks on the plantation in order to remain in power and desperation leads you to do things you normally wouldn't do, such as lie and revise history and hold up phonies and known hoaxers (Tawana Brawley comes to mind) such as Al Sharpton as fake leaders of the Civil Rights movement. 40 years of your phony war on poverty and blacks are still bottom of the totem pole where you want them. 8 years of Obama and black poverty has increased and black unemployment is still almost double white unemployment and the median black household income has decreased and a record number of black Americans are now on public assistance. Seems electing a half black Democrat stooge for president did more to help Muslims than it did American blacks, judging by the billions of tax dollars diverted to financing and arming Muslim militants such as the Muslim Brotherhood or Syrian rebels (many of whom defected to ISIS). Never mind that Muslims, whom Democrats support and Obama invites to the White House, persecute black Christians in Africa. And yet 100% black BRAIN SURGEONS such as Dr. Benjamin Carson are ignored by these so-called "pro black" liberals because they are Christian and align themselves with the true party of civil rights and individual liberties. You write off and publicly hang an educated, moral black man if he dares challenge your Democrat dogma. Liberal Democrat Progressive white guilt is quite a thing to behold.

Re: “Dimitri Cherny gives us a choice in November

You're right. Capitalism is so mean to favor the winners. We should uphold losers in society and give trophies to all the losers and then demand they run for office on the democrat ticket so the rest of the losers have a loser to represent them. Then we should steal the earnings from the winners and redistribute it to the losers. If we raise taxes enough, no one will have any incentive to be winners anymore, and we can all be delighted losers in solidarity!

Re: “Lessons from the GOP primary

Wonder if those folks in Belgium and Paris will become fearful like our SC GOP voters? Maybe Mr Moredock can tell them that their odds of being blown up are actually very low and they need not worry like our fearful SC GOP voters.

Re: “Lessons from the GOP primary

Maybe Moredock should explain to SC GOP voters that only people in places like Belgium, Bomabay, and Paris need be concerned with terrorism and muslim extremists.

Will please tell the people in Brussels they don't need to be worried about terrorism lest they become like the fear mongering SC GOP voters.

Re: “Lessons from the GOP primary

'Moredock has spent a decade or so at CP repeatedly explaining why Republicans are the scum of the earth.'

Conservatives have spent the last 34 years demonstrating that they, in fact, are the scum of the earth.

Any help from Moredock is a drop in the bucket.

Moredock has spent a decade or so at CP repeatedly explaining why Republicans are the scum of the earth. We get it Will.

Maybe he could branch out and explain why he is supporting someone who voted for the Iraq War, supported mandatory drug sentencing, DOMA, ethanol subsidies, and engages in cronyism to the 9th degree?

Re: “Lessons from the GOP primary

No, its the people, "We the people" have had enough of Washington and those who do not carry out the peoples reason for voting them into office, and the job we sent them to do for us and the Nation. The elites think they know better, so they don't pay any attention to the peoples vote after they get to Washington, the Lobby people take over and the big money company's side with them against the people. So what you now see is , enough of this , the people want an outsider and they really don't care about that persons sins against God and man, or their other problems as long as they aren't an insider in Washington or a politician, It seems that Trump is the only non-office holder and outsider in the bunch, and he is using his own money to run , unlike the others who are using the peoples money. it looks like the old GOP is about to be destroyed along with the Democrats, it is time we have this change in America.

Re: “Lessons from the GOP primary

The 3 stooges, Rubio, Cruz and Trump.
They have no one to blame but themselves when Hillary gets elected in November.
Last night's debate made me embarrased to be an American. Never thought penis size would ever come up in a presidential debate. Guess I thought wrong.

Re: “Lessons from the GOP primary

Trump's self-serving brand of anti-charisma is given away by that shit-eating look on his face. You can almost hear him making fun of his audience through the television: "look at all these mouthbreathers. They're actually CHEERING at all this hateful, inconsistent, emotionally over-the-top crap I'm saying. This is literally more fun than having a billion dollars."

I'm very interested in what the big reveal will be

1) Trump is doing all this for fun
2) Trump is conducting a social experiment to justify annexing ourselves to Canada
3) Trump actually hates America and wants to run it into the ground
4) Trump is literally Hitler
5) Trump is literally Satan

Remember kids, support Annie Oakley, the DOMA touting, "super predator" spouting, prison-industrial-complex building, "women must be believed" unless they accuse my husband, new and improved candidate brought to you by Wall Street. Now with regime change.

Of course the Clintons thought Trump was a great guy when he donated to their campaigns and foundation, enough to go golfing with him and attend his most recent nuptials.

Re: “Lessons from the GOP primary

As an independent voter I have watched the Republican party drift further and further to the right each election cycle. Trump is simply an opportunist that recognized this and capitalized.

Re: “Lessons from the GOP primary

"Trump had a resounding victory, with 32.5 percent of the vote." I read stuff like this in every media outlet and, frankly, it was really depressing me. Then I realized (why has nobody mentioned this?) what this really means is this: 2/3 of the Republicans voting in primaries and caucuses DON"T WANT TRUMP! Why have the Media not picked up on this? For an obvious reason, Trump news sells advertising. And the Republican leadership spent too long in denial and now are too preoccupied with hand-wringing to seize on this point and use it to their advantage. But as for me, I'll take what I can get. I can take solace in the belief that only a third of the party are ignorant demagogue-chasing Racists.
