    When last was a term such as this used in political or public discourse?

    Other than a dog-whistle to those racists that used it back in the days where they actually used tacticts (sp) such as "breaking a negro" slave to do their bidding?

    Anyone?

    I have no idea, but I also don't have any idea what you might be referring to?

    You're not familiar with the term "breaking a negro?"

    Its an old tactict used in the days of slavery, much like breaking a wild horse.

    Like the scene from 'Roots' in which the slave master "broke" Kunta Kinte down until he responded to the name "Tobay."

    I know history yes, but what does this have to do with current events?

    This?

    A source sends over some audio of the quote of the week — GOP Senator Jim DeMint on a conference call, saying that if Republicans and conservatives stop Obama on health care reform, it will “break him” and be Obama’s “Waterloo”:

    The audio adds a harsh overtone, even stridency, to the quote, and as such, it’s likely to find its way into ads pummeling Republicans as obstructionist:
