The people upon wwhom Ake pastes this label arre

1. Those who oppose homophobia.
2. Those who oppose his denigration of travellers.
3. Those who support Gay marriage.

In fact, just about anybody who supports equal rights and equal treatment for all.

reason can only prevail over irrational fear with a lot of work & the passage of time.... and is easily set back.

growing up in the 50's & '60's, I knew that racism & bigotry was wrong... because it wasn't fair or honest... people are people... no more no less.

during the time of the race riots I was on a school trip to a site in New York City where we encountered a group of black girls chanting anti-white slogans. It was my first taste of what it feels like to be hated for no reason, other than the color of my skin. scary as hell.

the worst part was the gut reaction it left.... for years after that, I would get that "fight or flight" twinge when first meeting a black person. I knew it was irrational, wrong & shameful... hated the fact that it existed at all and did everything I could to overcome it. And strove to make sure the person I met was treated in a polite and friendly manner.

the worst of it is over... but I still "see" the color of a person's skin... something I had never done before.

it's conditioning... brainwashing if you will... and as long as we have hate mongers out there flaming the fans, it will continue.

but exposure of our young people to all manner of different people in a non threatening way will go a long way to defusing the fear & hate of "difference"... look at the increased acceptance of non-straight folks.

I was at the hardware store today, and heard a man and woman, both about 70 years old, talking about they election. You'd think they were talking about the end of the world. The guy was so angry about it, that he seemed like he might do something drastic.

I can't understand why some people seem to be so afraid of Barack Obama. He's certainly not perfect, but he didn't do anything horrible to the country in his first four years.

These people pound their chests for "democracy" yet did everything in their power to disenfranchise as many Democrat voters... That's called...

Liberal, not liberal--who cares? I'm glad Romney lost. This was an election the republicans had to win--HAD to win it. Spent enormous amounts of money to win it. We're sure they were going to win it.

A win would have validated four more years of moralistic, anti-intellectual bullshit forced down our throats by the shovelful. I've already had more than my fill. The right wing kooks who wear intolerance, hatred and bigotry on their chests like medals of honor have to slink back under the rocks the GOP looked under to find and recruit them and cry their little eyes out. Well, that just breaks my heart.

And they won't figure out what's wrong with their approach by 2016 so they can write that election off as an automatic loss. By 2020, I still don't see it. What happened? They got in bed with hatred and there's always a price to pay somewhere down the road when you do that. The GOP will have to oust all the nutballs that comprise their base and those people won't go without a fight to the death because they have no other choice. So over the next 8 years, there will be serious bloodbathing in the GOP as it searches for a soul it currently lacks.

Creationists, birthers, racists, misogynists, conspiracy kooks, homophobes, anti-intellectuals--all were ready to set up shop in Washington and spread their toxins around but now must find someplace else--preferably outside the country. Americans finally got it right. Evidently they are as sick of that rotting heap of stinking bullshit as I am. Maybe they saw how nice it was to get a four-year break from having to stare into a toilet full of writhing shit-covered scum-crawlers from the far right decided an eight-year break would be so much better.

With them neutered, maybe this country can get back to some semblance of normalcy where "evolution" is no longer a banned word. Good riddance to the GOP. No mincing words here: GOP, I'm ecstatic you lost, you deserved to lose, you deserved so much worse than you got, now fuck you!

You're not comprehending Ake's definition, TIA, because you fail to notice that he puts quotes around it.

What he clearly means is people who posture as liberals, and even imagine themselves to BE liberals, but who are unaware of their own hypocrisy and knee jerk approach to things. They consistently judge the book by the cover, rather than taking the trouble to actually read the book. They are filled with the zeal of the righteous who react to outer appearances, but who do not think.

As such, they are a betrayal of the actual historical liberal tradition, a tradition which some of us still remember fondly and still try to uphold. Akenaton is mourning the death of genuine liberalism as it once was, and its replacement by the present very common shallow "liberal" posturing and unthinking reaction which mouths empty cliches, erects straw men to demonize, and enshrines new forms of prejudice which are taken for granted and even seen as "good" by the so-called "liberals" who embrace them.

My oh my, It just amazes me how so many folk were sucked in by this boy. Just wait and see what will happen to this great nation over the next four years. He will care for the kin and we are going to pick up the tab for it.

Sadly the younger generation in this country are gullible, materialistic and down right unpatriotic.

I saw his woman on Fox last last talking about health ! well she needs to check out her own padding before talking like that. Was I born on the side of a mountain.

lets examine this bigoted crap point by point.... "this boy" will care for "the kin".... does anyone for one second think this is a reference to the president's mother's side of the family???? I read this a paraphrase for " that darkie is going to take care of those n*ggers instead us deserving white folk"

and during slavery, while blacks where allowed some access to religion, they were not allowed to marry.... "jumping the broom" was as close as they could get.... after, slaves were bought & sold like cattle... which is what were- thinking livestock. so the reference to "his woman" is harkening back to that attitude.

so, I stand by my defining of Greensboro, NC as a racist bigot. and NAZI fascist did their best to dehumanize Das Juden... to the point where is was their patriotic duty to exterminate 6 million Jews.

is this really the side you want to be on????

John McCain - obviously with Liberal leanings- didn't allow such language BS to go unchallenged during his presidential bid.... and I won't let it slide here.

Voters in general don't see gerrymandering as a means of denying them a voice.   They just want the person who has closest views to them in office. Parties realize this. That's why gerrymandering usually means including more and more voters of similar political bent.

I think that another result of this election will be an all out effort to ensure equal opportunity to the voting booth. A national campaign to spend the next 4 years making sure that every citizen, regardless of race, creed or political , that wants to exercise their right to voe will be registered to vote in the national elections.

Look at it this way... the feds are actually the ones who determine voting rights... the states are SUPPOSED to incorporate that into their voting laws.... and we know how well that has worked in certain states.

we need to open up the voting rights issue to the light of day - and that includes gerrymandering- and work for a more just and equitable system. that take more than 4 years, I'm sure, but we gotta start now.

Furthermore, the GOP has a big reason for actually running over their own "tea-party" troglodytes in pushing a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants:   quite a few Hispanics are actually rather socially conservative and, when the issue of illegal immigration is removed, may well vote with the GOP on quite a few issues. Sensible Republicans--yes, they do exist-- like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio realize this--and will push others to act.

If you don't believe this, consider that in 2004, about 40% of Hispanics voted for GWB---and may have made the difference in places like NM.    Since 2004, the more reasonable GOP people on immigration have paid a huge price---like Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich, for instance=-- and the GOP Hispanic vote has sunk like a stone.

That will change.

Sarcasm?   Moi?

If you can't stand the heat....

After all, Michael, I made sure to say that when I talked about "querulous old biddies" I was not talking about you or Richard.





"nothing is really different".    You continue your record of almost perfect error.

The fact that the President will never run again actually frees him to do what he really thinks should be done without regard to re-election.   He will now be aiming for his own legacy.

Therefore:   

1)    There will be a deal to avoid the "fiscal cliff".    I don't claim to know the details--perhaps you do.

2)      There will be huge reform and a long-term solution to the   problem of illegal immigration.    This I can tell you about a bit.   

It will definitely include a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.    This will probably be at least actually 2 paths--an easy one for people under 30 and a harder one for those over 30.

Why will this happen?

Simple, for anybody who reads and thinks:    there are enough members of the GOP aware that the party is now on a one-way trip to political oblivion that Obama will be able to strip off sufficient votes to get it through.    Obama of course has a huge impetus to try to cement Hispanics in the Democratic coalition.   At this point they will expect--and get --action on illegal immigration.

Cynicism is always an easy, comfortable refuge--for those who don't read or think---but it is not always the right answer.

I am delighted with Mister Obama's victory and his gracious acceptance speech. Thanks god there is still a smidgen of relative sanity left in the overall populace. I am astonished at the bitterness that is surfacing amongst his detractors, and the extremity of their assertions. But there were major positive events buried in the noise of this election, aside from Obama's win. Elizabeth Warren is an example. Gay marriage rights in three states. Legalization of cannabis in two states. First gay Congress-person goes to Washington. SOme really good corrective steps.

It's not that I don't appreciate the concerns of my conservative friends; it is the estimation of relative importances that sets us apart.

I am very happy about Obama's win; the alternative would have been horrific.

I know, the answer is "Shove it up your ass!"

I get enough of that kind of rancor from our Governor in Maine (Paul LePage), who has made coast to coast headlines with his rantings. Take a deep breath before you post.

Informative graphic correlating education levels and voting choice and the best part of it is that the data re education levels is provided by Fox which accidentally insults every Romney voter in the country.

"Should America be run by a council of Native Americans?"

You could run that line for every country I'd imagine. Why should people descended from the invading Scotti, Anglo-Saxons, Norse, Danish and Norman French have a say in the UK parliament? Never mind all the newer interlowpers!

Should America be run by a council of Native Americans? Should Australia be run by a council of Aborigines? Should New Zealand/Aotearoa be run by a council of Maoris? Is imperialism wrong? My poem on "Land Rights" - http://www.myspace.com/walkaboutsverse/blog/476693050

I just found out that folks in Colorado passed a measure, asking their state legislature to call for a constitutional amendment overturning Citizens United. I'm hoping a few more states will follow their lead.

Thanks for the apology. Now get a towel and contain that dripping sarcasm.

I would be happy to have an adult conversation about - well, just about anything. But gratuitous smears don't fall into that category. If you care to read back, my first post in this discussion stated that after all the money that was spent on the campaign, nothing's really different in Washington, and asked who was made happy by that.
It's a question, not a whine. Look it up if you can't tell the difference.

Richard Bridge says: "One of the most shocking things is the irrefutable proof of the voting machines altering people's votes."

I think you misunderstand Americans, Richard. Americans are compulsively honest (in a legalistic sort of way) and are very unlikely to "fix" voting machines to alter election results. What they do instead, is manipulate the laws to fit their designs, and then follow those manipulated laws to the letter.

That's what happened in Florida. Thousands of people were "legally" disqualified from voting. It was unfair and unjust, but it was "legal."

And I even congratulated you on your ability to put a few sentences together and on your grasp of grammar.    What's more, I think you even spelled everything correctly.

And I encouraged you in your budding political career.

Gee, I'm praising you to the skies.    One would think you would be happy.
