Republicans Vs. Subjective Arguments That Have No Merit (Video)


Rep. Hank Johnson say’s you can expect to see people with “white hoods and white uniforms again, riding through the countryside.” Really? He say’s “that’s the logical conclusion if this kind of attitude is not rebuked.” No sir, it is the next illogical conclusion. How much rebuking will it take? Do lawmakers really need to waste precious time “rebuking” Joe Wilson? Honestly, we have so much stuff happening in Washington and they’re focusing on rebuking an individual for saying something that he apologized for.

Alright, now that I have that off my chest, lets approach this from a sane perspective. We need to be honest about this situation, no one knows if Joe Wilson had racial indentations or motives when shouted “you lie” to President Obama. Whether or not it was racially motivated is between Joe Wilson and God. The only thing we can go on is what Wilson did and what he is now saying.

He made a mistake, got angry and yelled “you lie.“ That is not said to excuse what he did, it was reprehensible, but it does show us that he didn’t say anything about race whatsoever. He then apologized to the President, and he accepted his apology, that should be the end of it. It would be different if he refused to apologize, but he didn’t. It is not up to Hank Johnson or Jimmy Carter to tell us what Joe Wilson meant, they are speculating, they have no proof, all they have are empty words.

What they are doing is irritating the right, and turning that irritation into the issue, rather than addressing the real issue at hand.

What can the Republicans do to show that they’re not racists? They can’t do anything, because we are not arguing about facts, we are arguing about an unknown factor, something that is completely subjective. It would be different if there was anything more to excoriate, but there’s nothing left.

This needs to end now. The real issue is health insurance and the public option. Democrats can only play this hand so long before they have to fold. Because at the end of the day Republicans have the upper hand, if they didn’t the Democrats wouldn’t be acting this way.
