    When in Doubt, liberals pull the race card.

    Sirously, is there not an arguement that the liberals wont pull the race card?

    Rep Issa was called a racist for adjourning the committee that is investigating the IRS targeting of conservative groups after Lerner plead the fifth. When Rep Cummings had a tempertantrum when he wanted to keep going, Issa repeated the decission to adjourn since he is the lead of the house oversight committee.

    So, please, how was what Issa did racist? How was it even close to oppression in Venezuela and Ukraine?

    Do you see anyone calling Rutgers administration racist for trying to revoke the invitation to Dr. Rice to speak at graduation?

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson called Issa's behavior "crude, wrong, racist and mean."

    Re: When in Doubt, liberals pull the race card.

    Why don't you ask Reverend Jackson? He was the only one in the article that called Rep. Issa's behavior racist.

    You'll notice even Debbie Blabbermouth-Schultz stopped short of calling Issa's actions racist.

    As for pulling the discrimination card, how is this any different from stories out of conservative media outlets that trumpet a war on Christians, war on patriotism, or even a war on whites?

    Also, make a note that this story is from Fox News, why do you think they included a quote from Reverend Jackson?

    What in the hell does he have to do with Congress?

    Would they have even included his comment on the matter if he said something less inflammatory?

    No, because he is totally irrelevant to what happens in Congressional Hearings.

    You are swallowing race bait yourself and you don't even realize it.

    Tell me, how does it taste?

    Dude, will there EVER be anything positive or humorous that you would like to talk about? I'm not going to pretend that we're all generally a positive bunch here, but damn! You're always pissed off when you post. And you only talk about things that piss you off. Namely, the way that white Christian heterosexual males have it so damn hard in this country.

    It wasn't racist. It was an act of douchebaggery on Rep. Issa's part. He didn't let the man finish his statement, or ask a question. Stay classy, Mr. Issa!

    Actually, he is only one person they included. Hanity was interviewing someone else yesterday who called Issa Racist and wouldnt answer "how is it racist"? Why cant you answer the question instead of trying to attack the news reporting the comments and me?

    BTW, what does Al Sharpton have to do with the white house other than to get Obama to speak on the matter of George Zimmerman/travon martin. Sensationalist persuade public opinion and public opinion get these people elected. Jesse Jackson could be setting up to help a campaign against Issa come election time.

    I don't think it was racist.

    I only pointed out that you are swallowing race bait yourself, and in turn, spreading it around for others to gobble up.

    Enjoy yourself down there rolling around in the racist muck.

    I tried counseling him about that just yesterday. I tried telling him that he comes across as not very level-headed with all these "AM radio-esque" posts and that signature block with that stuff about turd sandwiches, and those cryptic political wind measurements.

    He really needs to edit that signature block.

    Do I say hard or that they are not treated fairly? I dont consider it hard preform at the set standards layed out by an institution, as long as everyone has to preform at the same standards. When one or two groups are left out of having to preform under the standards, that is still discrimination. Until you will admit that ommitting a few groups of people based on their skin color or their gender from boosts or bonuses is the same as making certain people work preform above the standards, you will never understand.

    I can some what agree with this. I am not a fan of Issa, but racist?
