Right, but why did mainstream racism disappear so much slower than mainstream homophobia is? I guess you could say racism is more ingrained in American culture (plus I think racism/xenophobia is at least at some level a natural human response), but Christian morality is also very deeply ingrained.

edit: ingrain, not engrain

It's easy to see race. It's not easy to see sexual orintation. (See: Straight Gay, Camp Straight)

The most recent one was a while ago, but this thread is here to report Rpublicans on Rape in the future, since so many Republicans love talking about it. Ligitamitly, of course.

Let's face it: the sad truth is that a majority of this forum is subtly racist, and cannot accept the idea that an African-American like Oldies can be a proud, unapologetic conservative. Disgusting.
3257  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / The official "Republican talks stupidly about rape" thread on: March 06, 2013, 12:25:40 pm
Since Republicans have rape on their minds, let's have a unified thread about it.

Oldiesfreak, here's the truth in a nutshell:

Democratic Solid South-LBJ does the Civil rights thing-AUH20 wins Deep South-Nixon appeals to the racists in the Democratic party-Racist democrats vote for him-Nixon resigns-Ford and Carter are not racist-Ronald Reagan elected-Black people hate Ronald Reagan-Racists mostly join GOP except for hacks and party loyalits.
No, here is the truth in a nutshell:

LBJ signs the Civil Rights Act for political expediency.  The "Solid South" flips to Goldwater and the Republicans, but only for that election.  Wallace splits the Democratic vote over civil rights in 1968, handing several Southern states to Nixon.  Nixon doesn't pander to racists due to Wallace's candidacy making it pointless.  A few segregationists became Republicans, but the vast majority stayed Democrats for life.


Let me expand on my side:

LBJ does Civil Rights stuff partly because his predecessor's death (death of a predecessor can help change views- see Chester Arthur's views before and after Garfield died.), and partly because of his own anti-intitutionalized racism, but he was still very racist himself by modern standards. As a result, the southern Democrats in 1964 voted for Goldwater, because Goldwater opposed the actions.

In 1968, with another anti-racist on the Democrat ticket, the southerners form a new party and make bigot George Wallace the nominee. Wallace wins most of the south because of his racism. The rest split the vote and Nixon wins. From then on, Nixon pandered to the racists.

After Carter was nominated, the south briefly became democratic (only because Carter himself was a southerner), but then Reagan, who won, pandered even more so to the racists, doing everything he can to make blacks miserable. As a result, the Republicans become the party of racism. Most racist Democrats switch parties, such as Thurmond. A few don't join, but only stay out of party loyalty than re-alignment.

Political parties evolve. Jackson would be appalled by todays Democrats, as well as Lincoln and todays Republicans.

That's almost as bad as the "Poland invades Iraq because Hoover wins in 1932" guy.
3265  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: What papal name will the new Pope choose? on: March 03, 2013, 04:12:21 am
I have a sneaking suspicion he may choose an unprecedented name, and one generally regarded as sacred - Pope Peter the Roman.  There are a few reasons I believe this to be the case, but we'll have to wait until the conclave to find out for sure.

...where do people come up with this s___?

I love This guy's Disney Pony videos:

http://www.youtube.com/user/DagaYemar/videos

Does a good job with casting too.

The most popular vid is "This is Halloween", which is fantastic, and Pinkie Pie as Jack fits very well.

I also like chooosing Fluttershy as Quasimodo instead of Spike (who gets the role the most often).
3270  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama angers two key blocs of supporters on: March 02, 2013, 02:03:47 pm
Yeah, Biden maybe, Gore, almost certainly, but Obama?  No chance he's a Brony.  He plays basketball for sh**t's sake.

Sure, but Obama's really more of a "Carlton" than "Will", if you get me.

On an unrelated note, Bill Cinton is a Brony. Sort of.

Still waiting for Oldies to come with a rational explanation for this:


That was the exception, not the rule.  It wasn't until 1980 that the South started becoming solidly Republican in presidential elections, and it wasn't until the 90s that the GOP started becoming dominant in state elections there.

Expand a little more.
