View Diary: Did you hear the joke about how the GOP isn't a Bible-thumping, bigoted party? (177 comments)

    I just read it and almost started screaming about "consider the source" (which is true for just about all Republicans, actually) because of Murray's disgusting history.
    But I didn't have to scream because your comment covered the territory admirably. The statement by Murray:

    Republicans are seen by Asians—as they are by Latinos, blacks, and some large proportion of whites—as the party of Bible-thumping, anti-gay, anti-abortion creationists. Factually, that’s ludicrously inaccurate. In the public mind, except among Republicans, that image is taken for reality.
    is particularly ironic. This scummy man who twisted social science into impossible loop-de-loops in order to "prove" that poor people are poor because they're inferior, that African Americans don't do as well in the U.S. as whites because they're inferior, has the chutzpah to complain about how Republicans are viewed.
    I particularly appreciate this statement you wrote:
    It is always Republicans focusing on how to change how Republicans are viewed by minorities, rather than how minorities are treated by Republicans.
