Lefty, and Democrats,

What are the arguments for mail-in voting? If voter ID is "racist" (which I think the argument is in itself racist), then isn't also racist to require ID to buy a gun?

question to those active on DU esp. moderators.

Don't bash Democratic public figures
Do not post disrespectful nicknames, insults, or highly inflammatory attacks against any Democratic public figures. Do not post anything that could be construed as bashing, trashing, undermining, or depressing turnout for any Democratic general election candidate, and do not compare any Democratic general election candidate unfavorably to their general election opponent(s).

Why we have this rule: Our forum members support and admire a wide variety of Democratic politicians and public figures. Constructive criticism is always welcome, but our members don't expect to see Democrats viciously denigrated on this website. This rule also applies to Independents who align themselves with Democrats (eg: Bernie Sanders).

The way I interpret it, saying anything negative about George Wallace, Leland Yee, or Fred Philps violates the ToS.
Does it?


Politifact is FAKE NEWS

Bloomberg: Stop and frisk targeted whites too much, and not enough POC

Democrat presidential candidate and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg said in 2013 that his city’s “Stop and Frisk” policy actually targets whites too much and minorities too little, considering anecdotal crime statistics. Bloomberg railed against a particular news service that was badgering him on the issue.

“They just keep saying, oh, it’s a disproportionate percentage of a particular ethnic group. That may be, but it’s a non-disproportionate percentage of those who witnesses and victims describe as committing the murder. In that case, incidentally, I think we disproportionately stop whites too much, and minorities too little,” Bloomberg said in a June 28, 2013 interview on WOR’s John Gambling radio program.

“It’s exactly the reverse of what they say. All right. I don’t know where they went to school, but they certainly didn’t take a math course. Or a logic course!,” Bloomberg said.

As The Truth About Guns put it,
[link:|Somehow I suspect the average law-abiding African-American or Latino in America would have a problem with arbitrary police stops based merely on the complexion of their skin.

As they should. That’s not a very American thing to do and arguably a civil rights violation.]

Why liberal white women pay a lot of money to learn over dinner how they're racist

Freshly made pasta is drying on the wooden bannisters lining the hall of a beautiful home in Denver, Colorado. Fox-hunting photos decorate the walls in a room full of books. A fire is burning. And downstairs, a group of liberal white women have gathered around a long wooden table to admit how racist they are.
“Recently, I have been driving around, seeing a black person, and having an assumption that they are up to no good,” says Alison Gubser. “Immediately after I am like, that’s no good! This is a human, just doing their thing. Why do I think that?”

This is Race to Dinner. A white woman volunteers to host a dinner in her home for seven other white women – often strangers, perhaps acquaintances. (Each dinner costs $2,500, which can be covered by a generous host or divided among guests.) A frank discussion is led by co-founders Regina Jackson, who is black, and Saira Rao, who identifies as Indian American. They started Race to Dinner to challenge liberal white women to accept their racism, however subconscious. “If you did this in a conference room, they’d leave,” Rao says. “But wealthy white women have been taught never to leave the dinner table.”

Rao and Jackson believe white, liberal women are the most receptive audience because they are open to changing their behavior. They don’t bother with the 53% of white women who voted for Trump. White men, they feel, are similarly a lost cause. “White men are never going to change anything. If they were, they would have done it by now,” Jackson says.

The FBI Has Been Lying About Seth Rich

A persistent American lawyer has uncovered the undeniable fact that the FBI has been continuously lying, including giving false testimony in court, in response to Freedom of Information requests for its records on Seth Rich. The FBI has previously given affidavits that it has no records regarding Seth Rich.

A Freedom of Information request to the FBI which did not mention Seth Rich, but asked for all email correspondence between FBI Head of Counterterrorism Peter Strzok, who headed the investigation into the DNC leaks and Wikileaks, and FBI attorney Lisa Page, has revealed two pages of emails which do not merely mention Seth Rich but have “Seth Rich” as their heading. The emails were provided in, to say the least, heavily redacted form.

Before I analyse these particular emails, I should make plain that they are not the major point. The major point is that the FBI claimed it had no records mentioning Seth Rich, and these have come to light in response to a different FOIA request that was not about him. What other falsely denied documents does the FBI hold about Rich, that were not fortuitously picked up by a search for correspondence between two named individuals?

To look at the documents themselves, they have to be read from the bottom up, and they consist of a series of emails between members of the Washington Field Office of the FBI (WF in the telegrams) into which Strzok was copied in, and which he ultimately forwarded on to the lawyer Lisa Page.

Franklin Delano Quid Pro Quo

FDR was everything they accuse Trump of being, and worse.

As a presidential historian carefully watching the pursuit by Democrats of President Donald Trump’s scalp, I can’t help but express exasperation at the Democrats’ hypocrisy and their selectivity.

Their goal, of course, is to tag Donald Trump with some sort of quid pro quo deal with Ukraine — specifically, withholding money to Ukraine if it didn’t act in a way that served Trump’s election interests. That’s the Democrats’ central case; impeachment and removal hinges on that. But here’s the critical question: Should such a thing, if proven, be considered impeachable? That’s the issue. And it desperately needs some historical context.

The question of whether such a quid pro quo would be impeachable is debatable, but what isn’t debatable is that the history of the presidency is filled with quid pro quo examples, particularly among the Democratic Party’s icons. And especially with Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Needless to say, there is no president more hallowed in liberal lore than FDR. In nearly every survey that has been done of liberal academics, FDR always ranks among the top three presidents of all time, behind only George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, and always top among modern presidents. He is their gold standard. FDR is the standard-bearer of the Democratic Party.

And yet, if you want to see a president who engaged in using explicitly public funds for his own explicitly political interests, look no further than FDR. In fact, no one did it more. What Trump is alleged to have done one time to Ukraine, well, FDR did incessantly to his own citizenry.
