Are we now so accustomed to far-right wingnuttia swamping from the mouths of ND/BDs that we no longer even notice it?


You are reading this wrong. Webb is making an argument to treat people on the basis of their class (i.e. poverty level), not race. In other words, he's making exactly the same argument Shirley Sherrod made just a couple of weeks ago.

He's got it right, and you don't. Democrats need to focus on the question of poverty and, especially, inequality. Once that happens, everything else will fall into place. Once income inequality disappears, racial discrimination will vanish as well.

Yeah, I'm reading it wrong. *sigh* It's Democrat apologists like you who make it so tough to get the ND/BD party to quit acting like Republicans. The country needs you to quit twisting ND/BD conservatism until it sounds like FDR liberalism. Facts need to be faced, Mike or we're going to end up with one Bush after another regardless of what their names are or which party wins.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
