If GOP stands for White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism, then it's not going to win anything

    No, but it was elected GOP officials that made pictures of the White House with a watermelon patch when President Obama came into office. It was a GOP mailer that depicted President Obama with racist stereotypes. It was a GOP voter ID law that was struck down in NC because they specifically targeted African Americans with surgical precision. Or how about the Trump state campaign chair that called Michelle Obama a gorilla. Or how about the unpopular one-term president who used birtherism to launch his political career. Birtherism is racism. And let's not forget people that worked for that failed administration being unabashed white supremacists.

    Really, the racism that runs in the modern GOP has a long history. I know, bring up the Democratic Party and the Confederacy, as if that is relevant in today's day and age. Last I checked, it wasn't Democrats clamoring to wave a failed, traitorous 19th century battle standard in the 21st century.

    Anglos and Saxons were illegal immigrants to Britain.

    They were illegal immigrants in America too until they killed the natives and took over their land.

    Apparently, we're supposed now to believe that the United States did NOT rebel against and separate from England but rather from...France? or Mexico, perhaps? :doh:

    If that were the case, we as a nation would NOT have inherited much of our system of values from the country that we'd been part of for so many previous generations. But that's not the usual pattern, if we look at the history of other nations. And there's nothing devious, or immoral, or even surprising about it.

    Do you even history? The Anglo-Saxon era was over before the Magna Carta. @Occams Barber already gave a great history lesson in post #5. People like Greene are bad at history, but loves their dog whistles.

    Every time I see the comparison of old Democrats to new, I am reminded if I ever wanted to know where they all went, I just look at one time President Trump, they became Republicans.

    Some have been some have not. Do you need examples of voter suppression laws that have been struck down? I can provide you with some. Court cases take time. Those lawmakers know this. A law can still be on the books for a while before it is struck down and do the damage that it was designed to do.

    Gerrymandering and voter suppression is so 2020. What needs to be done is to create laws that target the people you want to suppress, like say, outlaw menthol cigarettes, then with our accepted police practices, it's a legal shoot em up with no consequences.

    Do you really think that the political makeup of parties does not change over the years? I used to be Republican largely because they were the fiscally responsible party. That ended some time ago. Now they are just the anti-tax and anti-freedom party.

    Senator Byrd (the Klansman), his pal Joe Biden, and dozens of Southern segregationists in Congress who belonged to the Democratic Party were certainly not before my/our time.

    At least Robert Byrd apologized. What’s your excuse, David Duke?
    So let me get this straight, man that saw the error of his ways, apologized and then fought for civil rights bad. But people who continuously deny racism of the past (e.g., worship of Confederacy) and the present (e.g., NC voter ID laws, birtherism, portrayal of first black president using racial stereotypes, etc.) not racist. Ok, cool.

    The sad part is those complaining about people calling Tim Scott an Uncle Tom don't actually care because they sat by idly and defended people like Rush Limbaugh making racist statements about Barack Obama as a "magic negro", people calling him a Halfrican, and the entire racist birtherism garbage that used to infect this forum.

    Nonetheless, you have a sitting congresswoman making dog whistle racist statements, yet they're still trying to defend it even though many in her own party called out the racism for what it was.

    Never did that...don't even listen to Rush and was unaware he said those things.

    Voter ID laws aren't racist, claims of that are simply bigotry of low expectations (and don't take my word for it):



    Ensuring that a potential president is a US citizen is pretty important, wouldn't you agree?

    Maybe, just maybe, our Lt. Gov is right...and black people are being used as pawns for the sake of identity politics? Robinson says he finds that insulting, and I see why...and agree.

    Sorta like what NA had been doing to each other for centuries. Man has always fought over land and resources; why would anyone believe it would be different here?

    Anglo-Saxon rule came to an end in 1066, soon after the death of Edward the Confessor, who had no heir.
