2. Unless Bennett murdered a smear of cells or slept with another man....
then he did nothing wrong in this person's eyes.

7. Thank you...I forgot "rally round the husk of the white woman"
But let all the wrong colored people drown in NOLA or get blown up in Iraq.

I stand corrected!

4. Freepers have no self awareness.
That's what makes them freepers.

Racist language sounds "natural" to them.

6. Oh, I don't know...
The whole "abort black babies" thing, or starters.

I wonder what the Freeps would've said if ol Gambletron would have said, "Abort intolerant, ignoramus douchebag babies, and the murder rate'll go down?"

8. It has to be guilt and fear.
They know how badly they have treated people, do not want retaliation.

9. Of course not, if one is a racist then Bennett's remark is not at all
...offensive. :sarcasm:

I'm noticing that conservatives and republicans are becoming more open and brazen with their racist comments with Bill Bennett being the most recent example. Bennett apparentlt thinks that because he made the comment on his talk radio show in response to a listener's comment that he was intellectually engaging in a "thought experiement".

Well, it may have been more like a "thoughtless experiment", although the way Bennett brought in race when the caller's question had no reference to race was in my opinion manipulative, arrogant and opprtunistic on Bennett's part as a way of appealing to certain segments of his listening audience with inflamitory and bigotted generalizations about African-Americans.

12. they think we are accusing him of suggesting we abort all black babies
and that's not exactly what we are saying - his huge (hugh!) error was to link blacks with crime. it really has nothing to do with the abortion issue. this is too complex for the freeper brain.

14. Ding, ding, ding!!! We have a winner!
I know, you know, Bill Bennett knows, everybody knows he wasn't advocating abortion at all. Not on black babies, not on anyone. And no one is outraged over that, because it is agreed by all to be too far-fetched to be the least bit legitamate. His racism, his sick, sick mind were revealed when he equated such a thing with some potential benefit, based soley on prejudice and stereotypes.
