I just went back through to some posts I made in some discussions a few days ago. I came to one in which I posted a couple of links to the New Hampshire Refederation Movement. Lo and behold, below it there is a long rant about sheets comming off and how the person thought they were on a white supremecy website instead of mylot. http://nhrefed.110mb.com/ Please, someone, tell me if they see ANYTHING even REAMOTELY racist there or in the fact that I expect Obama to adhere to the constitution in the post I was refering to. I won't link to the post, but this person knows who they are and after going back and reading many of their posts, there isn't one where they don't acuse people of being racists or white supremecists. CRIPE! ....YES,....I'm FURIOUS!

Your still getting the whole "if your against Obama your a racist" people after you. Now they have started the whole " if you critize the president elect obama you are a racist" movement. Just ignore them. If the only thing they can do is play the race card, then they do not know very much about your post to be able to talk intelligently about it so in desperation they are resorting to calling you a racist. It really does make them look ignorant.

It's astounding. Critisize the president, demand a constitutional government and your a racist or a terrorist or both depending on who you critisize and over what.

yep it is horrible thing to be branded a racist. It is now a weapon they will use to make people stay quiet when Obama does something you do not like or agree with. People will be too scared of being labeled a racist to speak out.

I think it's the new buzz word for the libs this year because there is a black man heading to the Whitehouse. I've had the same thing happen to me and a lot of my friends on another site. We just try to ignore it.

It's almost comical, because many of the things I am trying to protect my state against were instituted by the Bush administration and don't even have anything to do with Obama other than the fact that he will probably continue many of the directives.

Someone recently called me a "white sheet wearer" because of a comment I made about Michelle Obama's dress, which was what the original post was about. I was told this because I didn't make comments about the clothes of the other 43 first ladies. Instead of asking what I thought of the other first ladies dress choices or how did I compare them to Michelle's, they decided to attack. Who knows, maybe it was the same person.

Yeah well there are a lot of people that are thrilled to have a black president because it let them call all his opponents racists throughout the election and now his detractors can be called the same thing. Frankly, I couldn't for the life of me see anything in the page you linked to that was even remotely racist. I was called a racist twice on another forum a couple days ago. Once because I stated my opposition to Obama, and then again when I explained to the moron that I voted for Alan Keyes twice in the primaries. I was accused of lying and knowing nothing about Alan Keyes except that he was black. When people throw around words like racist, it's just their way of letting you know that they are not only incapable of winning an argument, but that they are complete morons as well.

In retrospect, perhaps the person responding was on the same wavelength as Whoopi Golberg when she asked John McCain "Do I have to be worried about becoming a slave again?" after he stated that he would appoint judges that strictly interpret the constitution. Apparently anyone who believes in the constitution must believe in slavery. I'm still trying to figure out why Whoopi asked about being a slave "again".

Apparently Miss Goldberg didn't read very far in to the constitution [b] U.S. constitution Amendment 13 - Slavery Abolished. 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

“Has it occurred to you that when the constitution was signed in 1776 EVERYONE did believe in slavery and that the constitution did not have blacks in mind as citizens and certainly not a black president.” I’m sorry. I was unaware that you hitched a ride on the DeLorean to get back to 1776 and take a poll of EVERYONE that was alive back then. “and X what you wrote is an "amendment" to the constitution, it is not an original and when people speak of founding fathers they are not speaking of amendments, they are speaking exactly what they meant, the ideologies of their forefathers and that does not include black America.” Get off your high freaking horse. He said “strictly interpret” the constitution. He didn’t say “interpret everything but those darn amendments.” Whoopi Goldberg made her statements out of ignorance. You are making these statements out of complete and utter stupidity and hatred. You want to spread hate instead of trying to unite this country so you call people racists hoping to widen the divide in this nation. Thank god not everyone is as stupid and hateful as you and your little friend ery.

I don't see it as being racist. I have also been called racist in a number of discussions because I didn't agree with another's political views/opinions.

I guess I shouldnt have taken it too personaly, this person would probably have accused MLK himself of being a racists if they thought it would quell critisism of Obama

Isn't it interesting, however, that if we oppose Obama, we seem to be only racist against the "African-American" part of him (which evidently is a very small portion of his heritage)!

I have been called "racist" for months on another forum when I show any kind of disagreement to President elect Obamas views. Lol, even when I posted two videos of him nonchalantly giving Senator McCain the finger in one speech and Senator Clinton in another. I called him immature and underhanded and was called racist. It's their only defense, I think deep down they know they are wrong but so desperately want a black president and "change" they are willing to overlook anything. It's kind of scary.

I guess I was hoping we'de be by all that by now. I guess I was wrong. It's amazing, for people who want to put an end to racism, some people seem pretty determined to perpetuate it. As for the videos......mail me a linkl to them, lol, I wanna see them, you sure they weren't faked? either way, I'd love to see em.

Well, I don't think you're a racist, and I never got that out of any of your posts. I don't think that those who supported McCain or any other 3rd party are racist for not supporting Obama, I'm sure they (or at least most of them) would have voted the same way if Obama was white. That being said, I don't appreciate people telling lies about Obama being an Arab when there is no valid evidence of that and no reason to be spreading that lie besides stupidity and/or racism, or people saying that he won because he was black (which is along the same lines as people saying that those who didn't vote for him are racist).

Well, some people see my political affiliation and the activism I do in the name of it and lump me in to the catagory of a white right wing extremist. I guess our founding fathers were extremists. 8shrug*

Well, if you are relating to the founding fathers... yes, they were racist. But so was everyone else at the time. Not that it makes it right, but it was expected. And they were extremists, because they were revolutionaries.

I don't believe that the New Hampshire Refederation Movement is racist in any way but I also don't believe that you were called a racist either. My opinion is that the comment was that anyone who voted for Obama based on his promises and who actually expects him to stand by them, will be called a racist by those who voted for him based solely on his race, if/when he doesn't live up to expectations. An entire group of voters were in fact painted as racists but you weren't among them...at least not in that instance.

I dunno, I read through the post several times and thats all I could take from it. I'm still seething. I'll go back and read it agin later when I've calmed down. Maybe I'll see things in a different light. I'll message you the exact post I was refering to.

It seems that I didn't look up the thread far enough and completely missed the very objectionable post above the one I commented on. That post was way out of line but consider the source...this poster sees racists around every corner. I wonder if having such a narrow little mind gives him headaches? You're not a racist by any stretch of the imagination.

Of course you are not a racist and though you have never really had much time for Obama and subsequently got disillusioned with McCain, your arguments against both were rooted in your beliefs and that you were simply not happy with their policy positions. Indeed, it was a credit to you that you never dug into the gutter and never used mud slinging against Obama that was patently false, unlike others. True you did lose your temper a few times, but then again, who on MyLot doesn't?

I've been looking around trying to find which discussion you're referring to here but I can't find it, at least I don't think I found it. Anyway, we may disagree on most things political but I've certainly never thought you were a racist! You've also always been quite respectful in your posts. I really wish all this name-calling nonsense would come to a stop already! I'm not talking about anyone criticizing any of the politicians themselves because they put themselves into the public eye so they're fair game when it comes to criticism. I'm talking about the insults being exchanged between ordinary people like all of us here at myLot. All the "You're a racist" and "You're a moron" nonsense is getting old! Annie

Don't know if you will see this or not and I haven't been on much to respond, sorry. Anyway, I'll mail mesage the link I was talking about. Thanks for responding though. I guess this is a risk when you take on the type political activism I have. I posted a link to the website I was talking about in the thread I mentioned this person attacked me in in the original post in this thread, you should check it out. It goes beyond conservative/liberal democrat/republican ideology and deals with threats that effect all of us in this country, this great and dear republic we are seeing slowly disolve. again, thanks for responding.
