This content is user submitted and not an official statement

When a black man is democrat he is a proud black man. When he has a voice for himself and decides for HIMSELF to be a republican he becomes an Oreo cookie. Just wonder who came up with the recipe. Liberalism sure cooks up some nasty foods. Liberalism sure is RACIST,,, isnt it?

Thanks to the very "LIBERALISM" you so ignorantly denigrate, you are allowed to pollute intelligent discussion with your embarrassingly simple-minded race-baiting.

This is what the hate speech and lies of RW-Talk radio and Fox Lies has spawned. Stupidity, hatred, fear and abject ignorance. It not only pollutes political discourse, society in general, politics and government, in nourishes and incites RW domestic terrorism (Hillbilly Taliban). Violence and death (Hate Crimes) are regular results as we saw in Tuscon, AZ, and many other crimes and attacks, as recorded and followed by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the FBI.

Until we ban their recklessly dangerous propaganda from freely broadcasting for any one to be victimized by, we should rate it at least as harshly as PORN, which it is FAR worse than. XXXX on all Hate and Lie Speech!! No one under 21 allowed!!

So you propose to censor people that disagree with you? And what is it that convinces you that only YOUR beliefs can be disseminated?

[-] 0 points by JIFFYSQUID92 (-994) from Portland, OR 2 years ago

Of course not. Liberal minds didn't write the Constitution and Bill of Rights just to break them, that's a Con thing. So I see why you ask.

We restrict many forms of information (Wiki-Leaks), entertainment (porn), posting your home address, whether I, or you, "disagree with" them, so that's a bogus, strawman argument. But you know that.

I'm talking about damaging and dangerous and deliberately misleading public broadcasts. Ones that incite people to acts of violence. Like we saw in Rwanda. And the many domestic terrorist attacks here in America.

Personally, I'd ban all religious broadcasts, too. There are many religions, and the nearly exclusive christian bias is un-American. Freedom of, is freedom from, religion. Working on it.

That's not what I said. I said I would not vote for today's standard of conservative, which is a person like Newt Gingrich. I also wouldn't vote for today's standard of democrat, like Obama, because democrats aren't supposed to be war mongering frauds that love Monsanto and Halliburton.

When "conservatives" were (Sane) upholding the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and Bill of Rights; libraries, schools, organized labor, the post office, and justice and liberty for all, I could vote for one no matter what color he or she was. That's ancient history.

Today, conservatives have mutated into (Insanity) the Milton Friedman-Grover Norquist-Tea Nut Baggery; put the con in RepubliCONs, and are no different than full on Fascists. What we saved the world from in WW2.

No it's not ancient history. The propaganda machine you have been enslaved by TELLS you that it is history, and you believe it.

PAY ATTENTION FOLKS! Prime example of an age old RepubliCON tactic: ~RECRIMINATION~.

It's the "I know you are, but what am I?" from nursery school with different words.

They take the thing we bust them for and simply blame us for it. It works for Cons, because it's their side pushing back, that it's baseless and makes no sense is perfectly fine, baseless and senseless is how they roll.

That's why no one can come up with a single achievement RepubliCONs have made besides bankrupting the country and transferring all the wealth to the 1%!!

Their other major tactic is ~PETTIFOGGING~.

This is when they take one tiny insignificant flaw or exception of a policy or a person and exaggerate it to define them. Petty quibbles over trivia to evade the big picture.

They use it to make unions seem as influential as multinational corporations, and putting mustard on a burger to seem un-American. Once again, even though it's senseless and baseless, that's just how Cons roll!

His point is that actual conservatives of the type that you or I would recognize no longer call the shots in the current Republican Party. The crowd making the decisions has become a mix of neocons (who as far as I can tell are authoritarian hardliners), religious fanatics (the moderates aren't the "base" anymore so there's far less effort put into finding candidates who appeal to them) and a whole bunch of profoundly antigovernment libertarians (again, a healthy skepticism of the government is just fine, as is a similar skepticism of the private sector, but this is more along the lines of "Privatize ALL the things!" than it is healthy skepticism).

As far as I'm concerned, those groups need to be unceremoniously dethroned and replaced with rational moderates who are willing to put in the time to rebuild America. I don't care what color your skin is, who you pray to, or anything else about you; if you belong to one of those three groups I will never vote for you and probably not for anyone you endorse either.

[-] 0 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 2 years ago

I agree, but it's fairly easy to get caught up in righteous anger at the behavior of the current Republican Party and forget that it used to be more than the caricature we have now (and may again someday be more than that, even if I don't necessarily agree with it).

[-] 0 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 2 years ago

I could care less what he thinks about a Party or the behavior of a "Party".

He's using language that applies to individuals who may or may not be affiliated with that party AND determining that all of them are either stupid or evil. It's bigotry.

If you bother to study the history of collapsing nations, you would know this is all going according to plan.

When Russia fell the worse kinds of politicians came forward to plunder, that is why good men aren't coming forward now, only opportunists like Gingrich, who know that during the coming civil war the next USA president will have total 'king-like' power, this type of opportunity only brings out the power monsters. Good men or women would want nothing to do with the MESS that is today's america.

So you see a bunch of junk yard dogs fighting over the republican bid, so what, and the DEM-CON's have something better? They gave up OBAMA who is MORE right-wing in actions than BUSH 1 or 2.

Obama came to power because it Chicago saw its turn, the Texas oilmen had their turn and the NYC crowd have had theirs,

I really think you need to read HL MENCKEN to understand today, he made it clear in 1932 that DEM&PUG were the same. He made it clear that men only ran for public office to steal, that ...

"ALL elections are advance auctions of stolen goods" ...

The USA is going to collapse in the next 1-4 years, and those in power will be able to sell off say Yosemite for penny's on the dollar and ALL the USA public land, and those who are in the KNOW will have the CASH to buy all the USA public property for almost nothing, think this will not happen? Then you didn't bother to study the history of the post Russian collapse in the 1980's.

Why? Isn't racial discrimination as welcome here as the daily, endless political bigotry?

Why it is ok to insult, denigrate, and "pollute intelligent discussion" here with the embarrassingly simple minded political baiting that fills thread after thread here?

What makes that any different? What makes YOU any better of a person for doing it to ANYONE???

Your buddy Jiffy just compared conservatives to terrorists, the Taliban, porn, and hate speech. Of all the arrogant, biased, bigoted, and completely intolerant "hate speech" I have ever heard, THAT ranks right up there with the best of them. But at LEAST he didn't insult THE COLOR OF OUR SKIN!!~!!

To equate racial discrimination with insults toward conservatives or liberals is just ridiculous.

You should read some of the other threads in this forum that attack liberals with all sorts of denigrating insults.

[-] 1 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 2 years ago

And yet you do it repeatedly here. Someone insults Obama- and they are automatically a RACIST! A black man or woman votes conservative and they're an Oreo, an Uncle Tom. That is discrimination just as purely as any other kind of discrimination is.

Discrimination is discrimination. Whether it's done based on skin color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or political beliefs. Bigotry is bigotry no matter WHAT or WHO that bigotry is focused on.

I don't care how many threads in this forum attack liberals with all sorts of denigrating insults....does that make YOU doing it HERE in this thread ok? Is turnabout fair play? Is THAT what OWS is all about? Payback?

If so then bravo. Bravo for becoming the EXACT thing that you declare that you hate the most. Bigots. Discriminators. Political supremacists.

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (21440) 2 years ago

You twist words. Why don't you spend more than two days here before you make judgments. It is presumptuous of you to think you have us all figured out that quickly. This is the forum for OWS supporters but it has many many folks who are only here to denigrate the movement. These people are extremely worried that their status quo is at risk and they spend a lot of time hurling insults. Are you one of these people that has come here to kick up dirt? From your posts that I have read so far, it seems so to me.

I didn't have to have an account here to read everything that has been posted here. People tend to engage in repetitive behaviors and it isn't that difficult to figure out the behaviors they repeat rather quickly.

This is a public forum devoted to protesting. Are you objecting to my "occupying" space here in this forum? Must I agree with you to maintain some sort of "status quo" here or are you extremely worried that your status quo is at risk?

Is bigotry, in ALL of it's forms, a serious problem or not? THAT is the issue I'm sticking with at the moment. It either is evil and stupid and weak and pathetic no matter who or what it is directed at, or you are making exceptions based on your personal preferences. We call that BIAS.

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (21440) 2 years ago

I agree. I can't stand all the ad hominem attacks on this forum. But, people get pissed off and that is often how they handle their anger. This is pretty equal on both sides. Spend some time reading through the threads. It will take you a while to figure out who is who. Many times the folks are familiar with one another. You will also find there are many very intelligent people on both sides who really understand the issues and post with great insight. I would sum it up to say that this is not a forum for the faint of heart, by any means.

I wouldn't say liberalism or conservatism are racist. I'd just say that the groups can contain racist "members" ... not that there's an official club or anything that let's people in and kicks the unwanted out...

But when it boils down to it, if you want to go there, there are definitely more RACISTS among the conservatives than there are among the liberals.

Fun fact, the only racist liberal I know is a black senator in my city named Ernie Chambers. I think he's awesome because he calls out the frauds and tell's it like it is... but he is a bit racist at times. I still think he's awesome though. He tried to sue God in a court of law.

[-] 1 points by mvjobless (370) 2 years ago

You should tune in to the Congressional Black Caucus to see their views on Obama's performance regarding the black community, they are feeling pretty dismal. While it's true that Obama probably had the wrong advisors telling him what to do when he first took office, it feels like he was slow to respond to the true calamity that has been gripping this country since 2008. There are plenty of people who feel he has just now used the bully pulpit and twisted arms in Congress to get those idiots to legislate some kind of national job project. Maybe chalk it up to inexperience but he surrounded himself with criminals from the financial world, Summers, Geithner, and god knows who else and so it is no wonder the country is the wreck it is. Maybe he had no choice but to surround himself with these criminals, something we'll never know.

[-] 0 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 2 years ago

Well I hope you give that much benefit of the doubt to the next "white" President. Maybe Bush had no choice but to surround himself with the "criminals" the left constantly says that he did.

Why is the COLOR OF HIS SKIN the only possible reason ANYONE could possibly not like him???

[-] 1 points by mvjobless (370) 2 years ago

Actually, Bush was the criminal, who with his cronies stole the presidential election and as far as I am concerned, all the presidents that have been installed in office since JFK was asassinated were and are all puppets of the 1% elite. I'm not sure what your reference to Obama's skin color means, but as a non white myself I can tell you that racism is alive and well in this country and while I do not support alot of the policies of Obama, I am disgusted at the overt racist behavior that has been expressed to him by many white politicians.

[-] -1 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 2 years ago

Here's the definition I found - now the question that has to be asked is

Does the younger generation still use this term - I don't think so.

Blacks definition of "Oreo Cookie"

Definition: To much of the public, an Oreo is simply a black cookie sandwich with white cream filling.

In the African-American community, however, an Oreo is used as a racial slur to insult blacks who "act white" or identify as such.

The racial name Oreo is controversial because many blacks recount being called the racial term for doing well in school or speaking proper English, not because they didn't identify as black.

In short, these African Americans were singled out as sellouts simply for excelling academically and in other areas.

Many blacks find this term hurtful, for they are proud of their African-American heritage.

Also Known As: Sellout, Uncle Tom, acting white

Example:

Sharon's classmates dubbed the young African-American girl an "Oreo" because she liked school and rock music, both of which they associated with white people.

No, it's not an order. Why is it so hard to understand that the "text" I posted was from another source?

I made that acknowledgement when I posted it. Why "criticize" me because of what someone defined as "Oreo Cookie"

As far as I am concerned with the word, I stated my opioion about it - now maybe the "older black" generation may disagree. .

[-] 0 points by asauti (-113) from Port Orchard, WA 2 years ago

You are correct, I should direct my question to the "source". I accidentally skimmed over the detail of who wrote it.

Yes, I do know that many people like to hide from the truth. We as people should embrace truth and seek it out. For example, I support the Julian Assange/WikiLeaks.org and his/their ideals of allowing knowledge to roam freely. Assange calls it "having freedom from ignorance".

[-] -1 points by FreeDiscussion1 (109) 2 years ago

The point I made,,, blacks are not ALLOWED to think for themselves. If they think like a white conservative man,,,, they are given the name OREO.

Hey, I'm only submitting what I found on the "internet" with regard to the "blacks" definition of "Oreo Cookie".

The blacks like to "stereotype" their own when they become "jealous" of their success.

They think a person who was rasied in the "ghetto" and becomes successful should come back to live in the "ghetto" with them and share their prosperity.

[-] 1 points by mvjobless (370) 2 years ago

Interesting, you know, when the native americans were being harrassed by the feds around the time that Leonard Peltier was framed for allegedly shooting an FBI agent, there were native americans of his tribe who turned on their own people to become informants to help the feds destroy an indian movement for sovereign rights. The turncoat natives were called "apples", red on the outside and white on the inside.

Black folks and all minorities who manage to navigate through the "white system" which is what we have in this country should not forget where they came from and should, whenever opportunities arise, advocate for the less fortunate of their group.

It is infantile to say that people of color are scorned because they excelled at something that might possibly be perceived as a 'white" activity, which makes them a sell out. That's ridiculous. What would qualify them as a sellout is if they forget where they came from and adopt views that alienate them totally from their own heritage.

There are a great many "blacks" out there who are "struggling" just like anyone else.

I don't know if you listen to Al Sharpton or Warren Balentine. Both have an agenda - one has the agenda that blacks need to get all they can from government and as such are are given information on learning to be "dependent" The other has the agenda that blacks need to stand on their own two feet and as such are given information on learing to be "independent"

Which way would you think is the right way to go?

Both. Except I would not state it as starkly as you have because the subject you are raising is too nuanced.

I know Al Sharpton, personally, since my husband organized a fundraiser for him several years ago and I think he's a very smart guy who is very good at perceiving the plight of people of color and of all people generally. I don't know Warren Balentine.

My belief is that institutional racism is rampant in the US. And that is the basis from which all our problems arise. How people choose to try to break through that is the nuanced part. Millions of stories, all different and as a minority myself, I have had some bad experiences learning to be "independent".

I disagree with your claim that "instutional racism is rampant in the US"

I have worked in low income housing developments and see just how people living there are abandoned. Now, whites are "steriotyped" if they try to help out blacks.

On the othe hand if a black person does it it's ok. With that being said, I have yet to see any black person of authority go into these places to help these people get out.

I have worked with a lot of black folks and can say that they are working as hard as anyone else to succede. The difference that I see is that the black leaders don't contribute to get them out of the situation they are in.

Katrina was an example. Why is it that only the "blacks" were the ones who suffered when they had a "black"mayor?

I wrote an article to the NO times about that issue. Why is it that blacks need public transportation to get around - why is it that blacks are supported by the government - the list goes on and on.

People drive by low income housing and don't give it a second thought - but people do live there.

I used to work with inspectors who knew what these places were like in the 50's - nothing like they are today.

Back then it was a "stepping stone" for them to get back on their feet. Not so today - it is a way of life.

Warren Balentine can be live streamed on the internet - if you have a chance - listen to him - he is from the younger generation who is actually doing a lot of good for the black community.

The Sharptons and Jacksons are from the older generation with different way of thinking - not to "empower" the black community like Warren Balentine does.

I hope my rant doesn't get you upset but I feel blacks are given a bad rap by the older generation of leaders. The younger generation don't even think about the things the Sharptons and the Jacksons spew.

They think for themselves and as a result are on the path to being successful just like anyone else. And it show in their attitude.

Apparently the "food" at Bob's Blog is only available to the "elite". Those who are not Bob's friends are unworthy of even viewing, let alone sampling the food or his thoughts.

Ironic no?

1 1/4 C all-purpose flour

1/2 C unsweetened cocoa

1 t baking soda

1/4 t baking powder

1/4 t salt

1 C sugar

1/2 C plus 2 T butter, room temperature

1 large egg

In a medium-sized bowl, mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda and powder, salt, and sugar.Beat in the butter and the egg. Continue mixing until dough comes together in a mass.

Take rounded teaspoons of batter and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart. With moistened hands, slightly flatten the dough.

Bake for 9 minutes at 375 F. Set on a rack to cool.

The Filling

1/4 cup room-temperature, unsalted butter

1/4 cup vegetable shortening

2 cups sifted powdered sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract.

Place butter and shortening in a mixing bowl, and at low speed, gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla.Turn the mixer on high and beat for 2-3 minutes until filling is light and fluffy.

To make a cookie, pipe teaspoon-sized blobs of cream into the center of a cookie using a pastry bag with a 1/2 inch round tip.

Place another cookie, equal in size to the first, on top of the cream. Lightly press, to work the filling evenly to the outsides of the cookie. Continue this process until all the cookies have been sandwiched with cream.
