    “I feel like the Republicans have failed to communicate our message,” said Jones. “We have all the policy positions that help black America, but we don’t go into those communities.”

    Those BAD Democrats!

    Quote: “I was just asking these people simple questions about if they felt like the president should be impeached or not, these guys come up to me and they say, you know, ‘go back to Fox News to pick cotton,’ they say ‘go back to Kenya.’ This is who these people are. But I doubt many people in the media are going to condemn these people.”

    I agree, that is reprehensible behavior, out-and-out racism, on full display. It’s disgusting and out-of-line for people to mock and call people names and “go back to where you came from” is just terrible.

    But Jones seems to be complaining about his own Party too?

    They show what's really in their hearts.

    You will know them by their fruits.

    Absolutely deplorable behavior. No one should be told to "go back where they came from" just because someone doesn't agree with their politics. I can't stress enough how much I despise hearing that sentiment be expressed. Even worse when it comes from someone supposedly defending ideals you believe in.

    Atrocious behavior, Jones just wants the best for folks. I saw him talk on Fox and always liked him. If you don't agree with the far left they will attack you.

    I think that the last Republican Irony Meter was buried with John McCain.
    (Glad that autocorrect does fix “McCain” but not “trump”!)

    No.
    Outspoken people are basically polemicists (they want you to see things “their way”), this requires thoughtful deliberation on just what to say.

    These things mentioned in the OP are just vile, knee-jerk, racism that these people are probably embarrassed for having said!

    I’d like to hear the first half of that comment about Kenya, because the caption they gave sure didn’t make it sound like the person was saying that to the reporter.

    Also, lolol @ Hannity complaining about racist comments about sending people back to Kenya:
    Hannity Offers to Fly Obama to Kenya

    When I consider the people that defended Roseanne's racist tweets are now up in arms over the racism here, you'll have to forgive me for dismissing your faux outrage. Especially when people legitimately went full paper bag test trying to argue that Valerie Jarrett was not African American.

    I've seen people make rude comments and express no embarrassment. It's called being judgmental.

    I agree these are racist display .. but what do you call these comment;

    An 'extremely credible source' has called my office and told me that @barackobama's birth certificate is a fraud.

    "Why doesn't he show his birth certificate? There's something on that birth certificate that he doesn't like."

    He doesn't have a birth certificate, or if he does, there's something on that certificate that is very bad for him. Now, somebody told me -- and I have no idea if this is bad for him or not, but perhaps it would be -- that where it says 'religion,' it might have 'Muslim.' And if you're a Muslim, you don't change your religion, by the way."

    The good news is God's power supersedes politics and what appears to be. That is, when we walk by faith and not by sight, not looking at what appears to be, we are blessed regardless of whether you even have a political affiliation. We are to, be one with God and one another walking in love and light! Love casts out fear, for with God all things are possible. Glory to God!

    I agree. I don't think we should take their alleged outrage seriously, especially when they continue to loyally support and defend Donald Trump, despite knowing full well what kind of person he is.
