    I can't wait for the Republicans, as a whole, to reject Donald Trump.

    (I feel like I'm going to be waiting a very long time.)

            See? This is exactly what I'm talking about. You think I'm calling you racist because you disagree with me, and that made me vewy vewy mad.

            I have absolutely no experience in psychology, so I can't even begin to unpack this. But there does seem to be a collective psychosis within the GOP - at least among the tea people - involving victimhood. Woe is us, we can't even think or open our mouths without being called racists by those evil *******s.

            I really don't get it. In reality, I was hoping (foolishly, as it turns out) that you would think, and that you'd have the courage to actually say something instead of hiding behind your usual facade. So let me be crystal clear: I don't condescend to you because you're a conservative or because I disagree with you. I don't do it because I think you're stupid or because I think you're a racist. I do it because you're a coward. I've never once seen you be man enough to actually subject your beliefs to any sort of debate.

            I'll ignore you if you ignore me. Deal?

              It doesn't take a psychology degree to understand this. There is a certain portion of the right that has been playing the victimhood violin for themselves for thirty years. At the same time, they constantly "explain" others' behavior in terms of a hallucinated victimization complex.

              Projection is an important part of the self-identity of fascists, who relocate their own frustrated violent impulses in the world around them, and then rationalize anything they do as "defensive action." For example, the act of ramming their faith down other people's throats is "defending religious liberty." Attacking another country is "preemptive war." The leadership of the far right always cultivates this, which is why critical thinking skills and reason are their natural enemy and one of the first things they attempt to suppress. It's also why the far right is always inventing domestic demons (liberals, gays, emancipated women, ethnic minorities, religious non-conformists, intellectuals). They need someone to assign these evil impulses to, particularly since their worldview is a Manichean pot boiler.

                  No need for any psychology here. You're a typical ******* dipstick for whom any disagreement must stem from some fundamental personal failing, the favorite of which is "racism." You larded your posts up with reflexive examples of this phenomenon and evidently aren't aware that you were doing it. So when you referred to "contamination" in reference to your view of my beliefs about minority students, it was just a figure of speech? And didn't mean you were calling me racist? What DID it mean? Or when you referred to "little whities," that, too, was another figure of speech? Any fair reading of our exchange would reveal your default position, which is to imply my disagreement with you over the Finnish model, or any reference to our problems in inner city schools, is racist.

                  As to cowardice, you are the one who suggested several times there are "many states" with not too many minoirities that are underperforming. Yet you haven't told us which ones they are. Or even named one. So you don't seem to be overly willing to "debate" either.

                  Your ******* pomposity, unqualified psychological posturing ("within the GOP" my a*s), and phony tears about your good faith efforts to debate are not persuasive. It is the left that spends a great deal of time and effort trying to silence views with which they disagree. And resorts to name calling when they can't shut the opposition up.

                    amherstblackbear, you have your answer on the whole ignoring thing.

                      You remind me of Jabba the Hutt's pet, Salacious Crumb. All opposition or disagreement stems from some fundamental flaw. And you TRY so hard to to be tolerant. While you're prattling on about "suppression of thought" you might want to consider CREW's continuing efforts to suppress those with whom they disagree. "Fascists?" "Violent impulses?" You mean like the "violent impulses" of His Panderness' pal Bill Ayers? It is a peculiar phenomenon of *******s that they reflexively ascribe their own short comings to others, while overlooking those shortcomings in themselves. Time to look in a mirror. "Critical thinking?" "Reason?" No conservative who posts here can hold a candle to your smug, condescending arrogance.

                      Today is Memorial Day. While one ******* host on MSNBC has a problem referring to our fallen servicemen as heroes, I don't. Am I being "political?" Or a "******?"

                      Chris Hayes has apologized.

                        Well, the answer will have about the same value whether it is read or not so why bother reading it?
