So Dan S, I provide a few examples of racist statement by liberal public figures - by your specific request - and you blow them off going so far that you said the Bill Clinton saying about Obama "a few years ago he would have been carrying our bags" was not a racist statement. Really! Was it not a racist statement because a liberal said it. Had Rush Limbaugh made that statement my guess is he would have been called a racist for making that statement, and rightly so. But you weren't satisfied so you asked me about some of the other deadly sins those hated conservatives are guilty of. So I used examples of misogynist statements made by liberals in the media as provided by Kirsten Powers, herself a liberal. A woman that I have found to be in agreement with from time to time. So after providing you with information, again that you requested, you post the following: "You know Dan K. I think I'm really starting to get that you just want to argue. You don't care about the truth at all. In your attempt to make your point you just dump a bunch of copy and paste nonsense with no context and no foundation." If Kirsten Powers did not right (oops write LOL) that article, if the specific quotes and examples she used are incorrect, If I misquoted Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Dick Harpootlian please let me know where I was mistaken. Maybe the problem is not with me but the likes of Kirsten Powers for having the unmitigated gall to point out that liberals are also quite capable of having potty mouths.

Hey don't blame me for calling those fine spokesmen for the liberals misogynists. Blame Kirsten Powers. the title of her article is below. I guess her definition of misogyny is different then yours. She crafts with words for a living so maybe she is correct, heaven forbid I said she was right. LOL RUSH LIMBAUGH ISN’T THE ONLY MEDIA MISOGYNIST

more on liberal misogynists from Kirsten Powers

Chris Matthews’s sickening misogyny was made famous in 2008, when he obsessively tore down Hillary Clinton for standing between Barack Obama and the presidency, something that Matthews could not abide. Over the years he has referred to the former first lady, senator and presidential candidate and current secretary of state as a “she-devil,” “Nurse Ratched,” and “Madame Defarge.” Matthews has also called Clinton “witchy,” “anti-male,” and “uppity” and once claimed she won her Senate seat only because her “husband messed around.” He asked a guest if “being surrounded by women” makes “a case for commander in chief—or does it make a case against it?” At some point Matthews was shamed into sort of half apologizing to Clinton, but then just picked up again with his sexist ramblings.

Matthews has wondered aloud whether Sarah Palin is even “capable of thinking” and has called Bachmann a “balloon head” and said she was “lucky we still don’t have literacy tests out there.” Democratic strategist Jehmu Greene, who is the former president of the Women’s Media Center, told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly in 2011 that Matthews
“is a bully, and his favorite target is women.” So why does he still have a show? What if his favorite target was Jews? Or African-Americans?

But the grand pooh-bah of media misogyny is without a doubt Bill Maher—who also happens to be a favorite of liberals—who has given $1 million to President Obama’s super PAC. Maher has called Palin a “dumb twat” and dropped the C-word in describing the former Alaska governor. He called Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann “boobs” and “two bimbos.” He said of the former vice-presidential candidate, “She is not a mean girl. She is a crazy girl with mean ideas.” He recently made a joke about Rick Santorum’s wife using a vibrator. Imagine now the same joke during the 2008 primary with Michelle Obama’s name in it, and tell me that he would still have a job.

Liberals—you know, the people who say they “fight for women”—comprise Maher’s audience, and a parade of high-profile liberals make up his guest list. Yet have any of them confronted him? Nope.

Sorry folks but Dan S. asked but no worries I don't feel the need to find the liberals who might be guilty of the other deadly sins that Dan S. wants me to research. If he wants to know he can check it out for himself. LOL

No misogyny on the left. HA. Don't take it from me - take it from Kirsten Powers who I believe is a liberal. Here are excerpts from her article

During the 2008 election Ed Schultz said on his radio show that Sarah Palin set off a “bimbo alert.” He called Laura Ingraham a “right-wing slut.” (He later apologized.) He once even took to his blog to call yours truly a “bimbo” for the offense of quoting him accurately in a New York Post column.

Keith Olbermann has said that conservative commentator S.E. Cupp should have been aborted by her parents, apparently because he finds her having opinions offensive. He called Michelle Malkin a “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick.” He found it newsworthy to discuss Carrie Prejean’s breasts on his MSNBC show. His solution for dealing with Hillary Clinton, who he thought should drop out of the presidential race, was to find “somebody who can take her into a room and only he comes out.” Olbermann now works for über-leftist and former Democratic vice president Al Gore at Current TV.

Left-wing darling Matt Taibbi wrote on his blog in 2009, “When I read [Malkin’s] stuff, I imagine her narrating her text, book-on-tape style, with a big, hairy set of balls in her mouth.” In a Rolling Stone article about Secretary of State Clinton, he referred to her “flabby arms.” When feminist writer Erica Jong criticized him for it, he responded by referring to Jong as an “800-year old sex novelist.” (Jong is almost 70, which apparently makes her an irrelevant human being.) In Taibbi’s profile of Congresswoman and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann he labeled her “batshit crazy.” (Oh, those “crazy” women with their hormones and all.)

Dan S. suggests "Perhaps you'd like to expose some of these people to us, some liberal politician or public figure who fits the bill."

I will stick mainly to racist comments that were made by liberal politicians and public figures in my response.

“[Harry Reid] was wowed by Obama’s oratorical gifts and believed the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as a Obama — a ‘light-skinned’ African American with ‘no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.'” – Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader, as quoted in the book Game Change

“I mean you’ve got the first sort of mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and nice-looking guy.” – Joe Biden, Vice President

“You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking!” – Joe Biden, Vice President

Racist and Sexist? “In about 18 months from now, hopefully [state Sen. Vincent Sheheen] will have sent Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from and this country can move forward.” – Former South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian At a state Democratic party event in May of 2013, Harpootlian attacked the ethnicity of South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, whose parents are Indian immigrants. After his comments ignited a fire storm, he claimed that he meant she should go back to Lexington County, S.C., where she used to live. He later claimed that he meant she should go back to being an accountant. Harpootlian, who resigned just days after his remarks, had previously compared Haley to Adolf Hitler’s mistress. When asked whether he would apologize about the Nazi comments, he said, “Hell no. This is fake. Nikki Haley is feigning this.”

About Obama, Clinton said "A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee," Mr Clinton was quoted as saying in Game Change, by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.

Only days before he will nominate President Obama for re-election in the November 6 presidential polls, the report claimed that in 2008 the former President had reportedly said: "A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags."

Is Al Sharpton a racist and a homophobe? Rev. Al, is famous for his role in the Tawana Brawley rape hoax; for inflaming the anti-Semitic riots in Crown Heights; and for opposing a “white interloper.” And while it’s not racism, Sharpton also delivered a 1994 speech mentioning “Greek homos.”

Jesse Jackson, “referred to Jews as ‘Hymies’ and to New York City as ‘Hymietown’ in January 1984.”

filmmaker Spike Lee (who dislikes interracial couples); Rev. Joseph Lowery (who thinks “all white folks are going to hell”); Rev. Jeremiah Wright (“them Jews”) among others.

Steve, Would it be better had I said "What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?"

.Dan S. You know what you are. You are a Hoot, with a capital H. You so enjoy using nasty words to describe conservatives. Here is your quote "His bombast, arrogance, lack of substance, belief that it is perfectly acceptable behavior to insult those who don't agree with him or do exactly as he commands, his xenophobia and bigotry, sounds perfect and a mirror image of the current crop of conservatives that patrol the comment section." You also used Robert Reich's quote that describes conservatives as religious fanatics, racists, homophobes, xenophobes, misogynists. Unfortunately you are most likely correct. There may be some conservatives that could be of that ilk. However, my best guess is that there may be some liberals that could be described as such as well. What would you call a person that referred to the President as the commie tyrannical Kenyan dictator? Oh wait, that is how you described him. Now I know it was tongue in cheek, but who besides you has ever described him in such a manner on this forum.

It also seems you are so desperately trying to describe me as a conservative.

Your quote "So Dan K., here is a perfect example, as demonstrated by your good buddy here, of the behavior and attitude that I and Mr. Reich and others who are fed up, have speaking about. The example is right here before you. This is the angry, frustrated, rude, obnoxious, uneducated base of the party that share your conservative ideology." Dan S. I am sorry to disappoint you. I am not a conservative nor am I a liberal. Do I agree with some conservative beliefs - YES, do I agree with some liberal beliefs - YES. Given that Trump and Sanders agree on some of the issues I figured Trump was your guy.

Hey Steve, Regards EPA, as the infomercial says - but wait, there's more. Google the EPA and Greensboro, Georgia. Bet you didn't see any of this disaster in the main stream media. Now if a corporation had done so, most likely huge media coverage, fines, possible criminal charges, possible job termination. Here is but a brief snippet. In Greensboro, EPA-funded contractors grading a toxic 19th-century cotton mill site struck a water main, sending the deadly sediment into a nearby creek. Though that accident took place five months ago, the hazard continues as heavy storms — one hit the area Tuesday — wash more soil into the creek.

No doubt the government provides some necessary services.
