Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Dec 6, 2012, 10:39 PM

Just received in an email....unbelievable

For Immediate Release:

Effective Jan 1, 2013, aspirin will be heavily taxed under Obamacare.

The only explanation given was that they are white and they work.

No other reason was given, but I thought you'd want to know about it.

------------------

I cannot compromise with people breeding the above kind of hatred and
divisiveness. eom

1. Disgusting. And I'll probably get one from a relative.

4. This was from my closest childhood friend. Sickens me when all I can do

is delete! I have responded to past like emails and I only get more as if the sheer volume will bring me to my senses. I'm quickly losing patience.

7. IMO a "When did you become a racist?" reply is warranted.

I have one of those "friends", to whom I don't speak any more. Too much work to do to let people like that bring you down.

16. I guess we're thinking along the same lines. I am considering this:

I find this very racist. This is from my earliest childhood friend...we're still friends although I never bring up politics, she does. I usually just delete and move on but tonight I am wreary from life and this just got to me. Thanks for your input.

9. Why you ask. I did it because some may never personally experience this type of speech.

At one time I never would have guessed anyone was capable or willing to write such language.

I also post it for those who look at compromise as an answer. It's time to take the reigns and steer away, far, far away.

19. I'm pretty sure if one posts or reads DU....

....one is aware of how vile Rethugs and anti-Obama and Dem creeps can be with their bigotry and hate speech.

I agree with your last point.

20. My thoughts as another recipient of such stuff--

-At least I'm not alone
-Sometimes just the right response turns up
-Seeing such crap acknowledged here helps me distance from it
-As mentioned above, I suspect not everyone is directly aware of this stuff.

8. Surprised my Rethug brother didn't already send that to me.

It's so typical of the stuff he sends...not so much anymore now that elections over.

12. I actually thought this stuff would lessen since the election but I am getting

as much, if not more, vitriol in heavy daily doses. This one sent me over the edge.

22. Actually that one was mild compared to some of the racist & predigest ones my brother sends.

I'm ashamed of him...he never used to be like that...but he watches FOX 24/7...so what do I expect?

for their viewers to regain their sanity equilibrium.

25. It kills me how these assholes act like

Obama hasn't been President for the last four years. All the bullshit predictions they made and the lies they spread during that time haven't come to pass, and they're still going on with it. It's depressing how stupid and gullible they are.

23. I gave a couple of reasons up thread about posting it. I note your concern.

My concern is that not to keep very aware that this continues is like sticking one's head in the sand. We must not forget.

26. I am fine with your desire to post this

I have been such an outspoken liberal for so long, no one would dare send me stuff like this. They'd get a scathing response and never hear from me again.

All I get are spam messages from "John Smith" and "William Brown" saying "hello, wat are you, how?"
