    No, thank you. A poster above asked why the cartoonist would use a right-wing group (the Klan) rather than a left-wing one, and another cited the Black Panthers as a leftist group that was supposedly as bad as the Klan. The point of my mention of racist lynchings by right-wingers was to challenge the other poster to show me anything comparable that the Panthers had done — which he can’t, of course.

    Somewhere around five thousand people in the USA were killed by white racist lynch mobs. How many did the Black Panthers kill? Just in round figures.

    I see, they say things that you don’t agree with. That makes them worse than the Klan in your eyes, does it?

    Really? How many crosses have leftists burned on other people’s lawns lately? How many have they lynched because of the color of their skin?

    " If the Dems can find me someone actually liberal with both a spine and sense of propriety, and I’ll vote for them."

    Already found. Bernie Sanders is running.

    Hear, hear. Because I’m tolerant of things like other people’s sexual preferences that aren’t my business anyway doesn’t mean I’m obligated to tolerate groups like the Klan whose purpose is to commit terrorism against other racial groups.

    Actually, he had a shutout against arch-rival Jefferson last October. Continuity, people!

    That multinational media conglomerates have ties to Obama doesn’t make them liberal. It’s a pretty good indication that Obama is NOT a liberal. But then, anyone who’s actually paid attention to what he’s done in office already knew that. A liberal administration would have prosecuted torturers and protected whistle-blowers, not the other way around. A liberal administration wouldn’t be murdering people halfway around the world by drone attack. A liberal administration would’ve worked to make health care a public service, not to pass a band-aid plan that is effectively welfare for insurance companies.

    No, the argument against Citizens United didn’t fall apart. The same people who’ve been buying up media outlets over the past few decades are the ones who benefit from being able to spend unlimited money in secret to prop up candidates who’ll serve their interests once in office. Yes, media bias is a problem (though not in the way you evidently think it is) but the cure is more access for everyone, not selling it to the highest bidder. Democracy is one person one vote, not one dollar one vote.

    “Anyone think Bernie could actually do it?” Bernie can win if we vote for him, unless we’re not living in a democracy anymore.

    Here in the real world, where the corporate-owned media are anything but liberal, we used to have something called the Fairness Doctrine. As a condition for their licensing, media outlets would be required to give free air time to opposing views.

    Guess which presidential administration eliminated the Fairness Doctrine? Not one that most of us considered to be liberal.
