The Grand Wizard expresses his views on immigration, California and the GOP
A Free Press For A Free People Since 1997
That's his nickname ( at least it was the first one to pop up on a google search so maybe it isn't self-endorsed ). I agree with the majority of what he is saying, just not a forum I have have expected him to be given.
Oh yeah, and he also has a smoking hot (body at least) African-American girlfriend
Two days before Thanksgiving, at Local 138, one of our favorite watering holes in New York City, we sat down with, of all people, famed immigration expert John Rocker, and talked for about an hour. Really. We did this. See? Sometimes we interview people.

John Rocker, the new hero of Wells conservatives. Who's next? Ron Artest? Ryan Leaf?
This from the people who founded the Klan and terrorized blacks.
Democrats have a queer religion, real truther madness.
Question authority. Power to the people
Not a Democrat. Plus, the history here is interesting. Repubs were the party of civil rights when they were the party of the North. Dems were the party of slavery and racism. Then they flipped. Dems became the party of the North and the party of civil rights while the Repubs became the party of the South and came to oppose civil rights movements, immigration, and things like that. Was it the change in demographics that led to the change in politics or the change in politics that lead to the change in demographics? I don't know. But I do know Rocker acted like a self-centered, hot-head and I don't find his political opinions to be surprising at all.
It is a fictional assertion that Republicans opposed or oppose civil rights. It is the leftists continue to judge people by the color of their skin and oppose equal treatment under the law especially.
I never agreed with his "Speak English" campaign... and his rant about anyone who he deemed different then him when he used to play for Atlanta "while riding the 7 train to Shea" just gave me the impression he was a stuck up, snobby rich kid.
This article seems a little more grounded. Still an issue I go back and forth on.
You guys identify with and support people like Rocker who put down anybody different then them. Start criticizing the Rockers of the world instead of the minorities and immigrants and I'll start believing your are making a return to Lincoln era Republicanism (that is the liberal wing of Lincoln era Republicanism).

While I admit I don't know exactly what the specifics are of his Speak English campaign, but since when is trying to get people to learn the local language such a bad thing? Perhaps he's just a really huge fan of Pulp Fiction...
And yet I'm sure you have no problem with liberals like Bill Maher.....
I do have a problem with Bill. Especially his anti-religion stuff. Republicans identifying with Rocker and saying they are the civil rights party is like Dems identifying with Bill and saying they are pro-religion party.
That makes no sense whatsoever....because, as history has documented, Republicans are the civil rights party. History shows nothing relating to Maher being pro-religion
The implications, when taken as a whole with all of the other opinions he's shared, don't leave too much to the imagination; Let people live how they want to live.
But, but...we won a title in 1989. We had the fab five years. We are the championship program.
Just a historical point...the Republicians were not all pro-civil rights for slaves (including Abe) as they were anti-slavery...two different issues. After-all the parties they came out of (Wigs & Tories) were more Conservative in their belief in aristocracy...many Republicians did not believe that the former slaves were equal with the white man, just that slavery was wrong, and not all of them believed that.
It was the preachers and leaders in various Northern, mostly New England Prodestant Churches who lead the equality movement in the country...they tended to be above politics in those days.
