  •  See, here's where you get the split in racism. (7+ / 0-)

    If racists hated blacks, why would they oppose their getting abortions to prevent black life and all the public expenditures made on behalf of purported black inferiors/parasites?  Or is this just about being able to tell others what to do with the most intimate aspects of their lives?  Or is this about the creation and maintenance of an owned/controlled underclass?

    The teabagger or white power type's racism may be different that that of the ownership class.  One is based in fear and the need to separate from the other, whereas the ownership's racism is a need for ownership and control of the other.

      It's ALL about telling other people what they can't do with their own bodies and lives, AND about growing an underclass for themselves to feel superior to (and lord it over, and boss around, and exploit).

      Reason and logic have absolutely nothing to do with it.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!

    •  Tea Party types include both those who support (0+ / 0-)

      and favor abortion. It is not a major topic for them as a group. Their focus is smaller government and reduced taxes.

      The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
