Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

Just as the progressives began as racists, they are still racists. If BO was white he would never have been nominated in 2008. A state senator and a one time congressional senator with a skimpy work history as a community organizer and insignificant Lawyer positions. Hilary would have been. and he never would have been elected or re-elected with his record of failures as president. I would bet that most of the whites and all of the blacks who voted for him did so because he is black. That's racist.

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
