Well, surprise surprise, Palin quoted from an avowed racist.
 
Evidently the quote, "We grow good people in our small towns, with honesty and sincerity and dignity" from "a writer" in Sarah Palin's acceptance speech was actually from a known racist, McCarthyite, anti-Semite writer named Westbrook Pegler, who is also responsible for this gem, when Robert Kennedy was running for POTUS:

"Some white patriot of the Southern tier will spatter his spoonful of brains in public premises before the snow flies."


This begs the question: What voting demographic was Sarah Palin pandering to?

I saw that on CNN. I think it's much more likely that her speechwriters are like her--stupid and careless, than intentionally anti-Semitic and racist...but you never know :evil:

OK, I guessed I missed this one, what is wrong with this ?

"We grow good people in our small towns, with honesty and sincerity and dignity"

IMHO, It's just a comment, nothing more, nothing less, what you add or take away is to your own preferences.

If I missed something, point it out .

:doh!:

You're cool with this, then:

Today Christians … stand at the head of [this country] … I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity .. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit … We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theater, and in the press—in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during the past … [few] years.

What ? I do not understand this. So you are saying that if I say this " I do not like Obama " ..... it's racist ?

I'm calling B S on this one .

Would you blink twice if McCain or Obama said it in a speech?

Christ, Roy, he's having fun with you. The racist part stems from who authored the quote.

I'm saying quotation marks are the sign of the racist.

Well I bet if one really tried, one could find a "good and intelligent" sentence or two uttered or written by Adolph Hitler. But one does not use them in one's own speech unless:

A- One is totally ignorant,

B- One is pandering to skinheads,

or

C- All of the above.

Palin strikes me as C. Doncha think? You betcha she does. (wink)

I would be shaking my head and claim it doesn't agree with my principals.

I can not speak for the person who chimed it .........
