    In 1998, Barr gave the keynote speech at the national convention of the Council of Conservative Citizens; a hate group that routinely denigrated blacks as "genetically inferior," complained about "Jewish power brokers," called homosexuals "perverted sodomites," and accused immigrants of turning America into a "slimy brown mass of glop."

    Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC) was a mystery to most Americans until 1998. Late that year, a scandal erupted over prominent Southern politicians' ties to the brazenly racist group.

    At first, even the politicians in question claimed they didn't know what this Council was all about. Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi, who had spoken to the group five times, once telling its members they "stand for the right principles and the right philosophy," claimed he had "no firsthand knowledge" of it.

    Congressman Bob Barr of Georgia, who touched off the brouhaha by delivering a keynote speech at the CCC's national convention in June 1998, said he had "no idea" what the organization stood for.

    Yea, right.

    Just like Obama spent 20 YEARS in a church run by a racist bigot, called him a father figure, an Uncle to the family, a Mentor, put him on his campaign staff, used his speeches to train on, etc etc etc.... and never once in ALL that time ever knew the man was a racist and hate monger. Got ya.

    Do you think black kids today feel the same way about whites as their fathers? How about their grandfathers? How about their great great grandfathers who were slaves themselves? Black men who grew up in the 60's kind of have a right to hate your kind. But their kids don't feel that way, now do they? Got ya. :cuckoo:

    Just like your kid is probably less of a racist bigot than you are. And you aren't half the son of a bitch your father was.

    Ohh so it is fine to be a racist unless you are white? Fine to get elected to office as a racist UNLESS you are white?

    Who cares what Bob Barr is, he has 0 chance of winning. If I thought he could win, I would not vote for him. All I want is for the Republican party to wake up to the fact that Conservatives have had it with them.

    Of course I fully expect you do ignore what I just said, and call me some names. You excel at it.

    Yup! He wasn't my favorite guy in Congress and he isn't now, but I dislike voting for him less than I would dislike voting for Obama or McCain.

    The Council of Conservative Citizens is hardly a racist organization. They may not be sniveling PC whimps like some....but neverthelss they are a fine organization, and I prefer my candidates be in line with them......

    Young negros of today hate whitey much more than there slave ancestors did. One of the worst problems plagueing negro society right now is their anger towards Whites and other races that have so far outpaced them in the world.
