I like how Democratic nominations have devolved into arguing over what nominee has the best personal characteristics to appeal to a given racial group.

Right, personal appeal has never had a place in politics. At any rate Rush brought it up and was renounced as racist for it. I don't think it's so popular to talk about.

"Personal appeal" plastered across an entire race is not personal appeal. Attaching something like "homophobia" to an entire race is the literal definition of racism.

Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm being racist. But obviously I'm not saying all black people are homophobic. It's just something that's at least perceived to be prevalent in the community.

Bringing it up about Hispanics may have been more of a mistake on my part. I was thinking about the fact that they are so predominantly Catholic but obviously that's more of a matter of religion than ethnicity and applies equally to all Catholics.

At any rate I do apologize if I happen to have offended anybody.

Trump got impeached trying to weaken Biden politically.
Turns out, Biden was weakened enough all on his own.

It looks like we're done here. The elite "left" want to keep their dank tax cuts. See you in 2024 bros.

That's 538's way of saying there's a 10% chance a contested convention occurs (no one gets a majority of delegates).

Like we hate Trump?
Dave, why are you bringing up Trump in a Bernie thread??

Just for comparison.  Its hard to understand your hatred so best to find equivelent ones.
I do not know why it is hard to understand why I would hate someone who is in love with the idea of Castro, and in love with the idea of taking my toys to give them to Johnny to play with.

Fact is, many more people hate Bernie than they hate Trump.

A vast majority of people cannot stand Bernie...Bernie is a loser, spelled with a capital L.

I'm getting very tired of Dave and totallackey constantly shitting up political threads with their kindergarten-tier discussions. Can you guys please make your own containment thread and suck each other off in that one while leaving the others alone?

Is racism a bad political strategy? Seems to have worked a lot, historically.

I didn't remark on whether or not it's a bad strategy. Racism has its place in politics because there are qualities, both physical and mental, that loosely vary based entirely on race. To say otherwise is to lie and we all know lying has no place in politics. Now, the real political discussion should be why those variations exist, rather than trying to claim that they do not.

In any case, what Roundy said was racist, but there's nothing objectively wrong with being racist. Many traditionally racist ideas are, for good or ill, based on pattern recognition. Identifying patterns and thinking critically about them is a hallmark of intelligence, but unfortunately lots of people accomplish the former and do none of the latter.
