    You know the discussion is reaching a pinnacle of intellectual rigour when one of those is thrown at you. Yeah, let me just get right at that, locating and reading 27 articles and news programs to understand the context of all those quotes, and then writing a full explanation of why they are out of context. Yeah, that's a perfectly reasonable thing to expect a person to do on an online board where the average comment is on the order of "yeah, lol stoopid troll, lol."

    •  Ah, the old "out of context" con job... (5+ / 0-)

      ..beloved by frauds everywhere -- as if there is some context that would transform the above fascist hate speech into a sweetly sung refrain of "It's a Small World After All."

      Another problem with your bullshit response: it implies that you do not agree with the above quotes in their alleged "out-of context" version.  But of course, we see from your other comments that it is in fact Buchanan's very bigotry that makes you such an avid fan of his venom.

      I leave you the last word -- I never met a schmuck who didn't insist on it.  But I would keep it brief -- that smell of smoke suggests the flames from your burning cross have gotten out of control and are in serious danger of burning down your room of Hitler memorabilia.

        You know someone is intent on ramping his sophistry to a new level of absurdity when he plays the Hitler card.

        You want me to dig up some Republican propaganda site of Obama quotes to bring home how it works?

        Obama's pastor of 25 years: "God damn America"

        Michelle Obama: "for the first time in my..life I am proud of my country."

        Etc. I'm sure there are a few such emails making the rounds. I suppose you're going to be consistent and say that such emails are completely truthful and in proper context.

        Yeah. Didn't think so.

        It's a tired game. Quote snippets are meaningless without the context of the entire piece to place the meaning.

    •  Sorry but Buchanon isn't just a racist (2+ / 0-)

      He's a clever racist.  But he's slippery.

      Listen to him just a few times and you'll understand he wants a whiter America, and you'll feel is sneering disdain for people who are different from him.

      He's simple scum... and what does that tell us about the network that employs him?   Everything we need to know.
