Another racist Republican in Congress. Different day, same story.

4 ( +6 / -2 )

Liberals keep saying that, so what? 

So what? Once again you show a fundamental inability to follow the thread of a conversation.

It’s scary that someone who can’t even remember what they’re talking about in the middle of a conversation has the right to vote.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Who are the real racists?

The Republicans of course.

Were you trying to be ironic?

3 ( +4 / -1 )

what does one expect from a woman who sends her children to the same (still) segregated school that she attended as a child. she'll probably celebrate by donning her hood, lighting a cross and "gettin' lickered up on shine".

2 ( +6 / -4 )

Another chance for bigots to rejoice.

"Mr President, thank you so much for all of your help," Hyde-Smith said during a victory speech, stressing that the race was about preserving the "conservative values" of the state.

Good ole conservative values like segregation and lynchings, no doubt.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

A Mississippi Republican who drew scorn for making racially insensitive comments managed to hold her U.S. Senate seat Tuesday

Pretty much sums up the GOP.

Bass: Now we see it in California, all the rich white liberals wanting the votes of migrants, they really care about their votes

Why? Clinton got 4,300,000 more votes than Trump. I haven't researched it but my guess is that that's the largest blue net win of any state in the entire country. You're claiming that this is the state when Democrats hatch their secret plan to get illegals to vote? A state where they have the least chance of losing to a Republican?

Makes no sense at all.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Bass: Liberals keep saying that, so what? We don’t elect Presidents by the popular vote and that won’t change anytime soon.

C’mon, dude, You have to at least try to respond with something that relates to our conversation. At least give me that.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Democrats hang around people like Farrakhan and Sharpton, but these people aren’t racists. Lol

This article is not about Farrakhan or Sharpton, is it?

Liberals are funny.

If you say so, but then you'd have to ask an actual liberal about that.

I'm not a liberal but if you keep insisting I am, I'll have to respond with an equally nonsensical "white nationalists are funny".

Neither of which nomenclature are useful or true.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Actually, those are time tested values of the party you support and vote for.

Actually, I don't vote for Democrats, Republicans or any other parties there, I'm not an American nor a liberal.

But I remain concerned over family and friends in the US who may be at risk from the rising tide of hatred and bigotry that the far right (whatever party they stick with) are infecting the country with.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Like most liberals, I see.

With you, there is concrete proof of your inability to follow the thread of a conversation past 2-3 posts, that can be seen regularly, with an example in this very thread even.

Your empty statement about liberals is empty and meaningless. Like most of your posts. Not that you’d know that since you can’t even follow the thread of a conversation.

@Serrano

Sneezy - Democratic challenger Mike Espy must be even worse to lose to Hyde-Smith, eh?

Worse in the minds of people who live in Mississippi, sure. But that could just mean that a majority of people in Mississippi are racist. "Worse" is subjective.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

And yet they’re not building your wall...

so yep. The republicans are the racists.

Or rather racists are republicans. There are plenty of non racist republicans.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Espy is so corrupt, even the Clinton administration sent him packing. Speaks volumes about the guy when even Bill and Hillary told him to pound sand.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Another racist Republican in Congress. Different day, same story.

Oh, here we go again. I keep forgetting, Democrats hang around people like Farrakhan and Sharpton, but these people aren’t racists. Lol

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

Another chance for bigots to rejoice.

Liberals are funny.

Good ole conservative values like segregation and lynchings, no doubt

If that were remotely true Espy wouldn’t have been anywhere to be found in that race.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

The Republicans of course.

Oh, really? Now we see it in California, all the rich white liberals wanting the votes of migrants, they really care about their votes, but don’t want them to live anywhere near them.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Good ole conservative values like segregation and lynchings, no doubt -- comment

Actually, those are time tested values of the party you support and vote for. Segregation; Alabama democrat George C. Wallace was the one who physically blocked black students from entering the Univ. of Alabama in the mid-1960s. Ah, and let's not forget the ever-so-tolerant liberals in Boston who protested with the rally chant "Not in My Neighborhood" in the early 1970s over the bussing of black inner city youths to schools in the suburbs. Lynchings; again, a hallmark of the KKK -- an organization founded by democrats who were upset over losing the War Between the States.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Hyde-Smith . . . . came under national scrutiny when unsettling remarks by the senator, who said she would attend a "public hanging" . . . were widely interpreted as alluding to Mississippi's history of lynchings -- article

Heh, confusing “lynching” with “hanging”. A simple mistake. Any juice box journalist or a low information liberal could make it.

I never claimed anything, what wasn’t already truthful or known.

A state where they have the least chance of losing to a Republican?

To ensure you maintain your majority and to replace the people that leave with new ones, more dependent and often poor, but nonetheless...

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Great news for Trump and the Senate. Well done.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

Sneezy - Democratic challenger Mike Espy must be even worse to lose to Hyde-Smith, eh?

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

The media was openly campaigning for Espy with nonstop race baiting and racist insinuations. Disgraceful. Who are the real racists?
