Sykes has been coming around, but it is eye-opening that he went wide open with this. He is one of the very few that has been trying to fix the crazy. At some point, the realists in that Party have to regain the footing from the Loonies, and Crazies over there.

Good on him!

Why yes....yes you do. We can start with the Republican party and go from there. Just because you and your ilk scream the BLM is racist doesn't make it so. On the contrary, the Republican party has demonstrated itself to be a very non-inclusive organization. And some factions of the Republican party are down right 60's type of racist.

She's just quoting Sykes.

Saying BLM is racist is like saying that Pro Lifers are anti life because they are only fighting to save unborn babies. I understand why BLM seems racist, until you realize that the point of BLM isn't to infer that other lives don't matter, but rather that black lives ALSO matter. I have problems with some of the people that are used as examples for the BLM movement, because I think some of the people that they defend were irresponsible and belligerent, and I think that does a disservice to their cause, but in principle, BLM is not racist.

As to your attempt to discredit the source, unless she took the radio host out of context, then why does it matter if the author is a wacko leftist? Show us how it was taken out of context, and then we may consider your comments reasonable, rather than those of a wacko rightist.

The right-wing echo chamber is no different from the left-wing echo chamber. They're two sides of the same coin, both harmful and divisive.

For proof of this, go to Huffington Post, or any left-leaning website or publication, and visit the comments section under any Louisiana flooding story.

To the extent that any of these outlets promote an "observable reality is the enemy" agenda, they harm us all. GMO foods on the left, climate change on the right; pick a topic, really.

If we can't agree on a set of basic facts about the case at hand, we're never going to come together to work on a common solution.

And here you can the article's point being reinforced.

"The author disagrees with me, so everything they say is wrong."

Why do the nuts on the right and the nuts on the left prevent those of us who congregate near the center of objective reality from getting anything done?

Rhetorical.

It's because the whacked out nuts on the right are preventing anything from happening because they've lost all concept of reality.

I think there are far more right wing nut jobs than left wing nut jobs, so the right wing nut jobs have much more power. It seems that the right wing nut jobs have a lot of power over the Republican party, while I don't see any such power from the left wing nut jobs.
