Stupid Racist Me

I'm not going to share the entire long story, but stupid me tried to forgive and rekindle a friendship with a couple that at one point tried to play the race card ON me.

Two days ago on facebook the male part of that couple (who happen to be black,) posted that he agrees with Carter's latest statement that the tea party movement is based on hatred of a black man as president.

When I pointed out that he was then calling me racist he went into a diatribe about the healthcare system, guantanamo, and even Bush.

I pulled the conversation back to the fact that his post was about racism and I asked him to prove his point. I further pointed out that citing Jimmy Carter is indeed saying we are all racist although he professed he wasn't stating that.

I gave link after link including the following

Did he even watch the video. Doubt it from the immediate reply.

I pointed out that Carter is anti-semetic. I was then told to prove Carter is an anti-semite. And I was dumbfounded. How can someone be so blind? And to be friends with me, a Jew and be so insensitive yet demand sensitivity of his blackness. MEH?!

I could have sent a lot of different links about this but I chose this one from Huffington Post , afterall I'm dealing with a leftwing moonbat now. And well if you give them a source like hannity they'll dismiss the entire information just because. So I gave Huffington Post. I told him about James T. Harris. And pretty much after that no matter what I stopped. I didn't read his responses or post another thing.

After years of knowing them, trying to forgive their horrid accusation from a couple years back, because we disagreed and because he could not separate the personal from the debate and because I kept saying stick to the topic you started and gave facts THEY pulled their profiles from my friend list.

So be it.

Obama the uniter right? My ass!

Some people can only see color. I find this very very sad, completely opposed to what liberal values are supposed to be and yet again have been given confirmation of my choice to feel more aligned with conservatives than liberals.

Actually, as strange as it may seem, I don't blame that black couple for their lack of objectivity in discussing race. It seems black people are given their talking points at an early age. They simply can't see that the Democratic Party uses them to further their agenda of a welfare state. In turn, blacks are told this is what is needed; an all encompassing federal government that "will take care of us." If any black deviates from the party line, they are castigated in the manner that Justice Clarence Thomas can aptly identify.

Sorry for the loss of friends. But, from the sounds of it, you really didn't lose much.

Hi David, good to see you around. Seems I have a lot of readers from Twitter and then they go and comment over there. No amount of begging them to comment here seems to work. LOL Yes they aren't much of a loss. They are just head fucks. Funny enough and I didn't want to put it in the post incase he reads it, but seems not everyone he thinks agrees with him does. How's that for a kick in the pants.

It used to be easier, you could just avoid politics with people you knew you disagreed with. But now with people posting their opinions all over the internet it can be hard to avoid. It's always sad when friendship can't survive these things but passions sometimes are just too strong. Sorry your friends lost you.

Hey Bette Jo, I like how you said they lost me! :D

I have some friends here at home that are suffering voters remorse, and they have a hard time having a simple conversation with me.
These same people a year ago were calling me blind to the truth, and racist, and completely out of touch with America.
Even though they have seen the light, they veiw me and others that were against Obama's policies as villians.
The results from last years election has set us back a hundred years
