To the first bolded, I pose this question- If being "radical" on the right wing side of the debate makes you 'borderline racist' then does being "radical" on the left wing side make you 'borderline Nazi'? I choose these words because they are the most commonly used. The 'hate word' that liberals use for radical conservatives is Racist/Xenophobe whereas the republicans call guys on the left Socialist/Communist/Nazi's. So if Beck comes off as being borderline racist because of his right wing views, than the likes of Obama, Pelosi, Cooper, Franks... These guys on the left side of the debate would be borderline Nazi's (which is what people said Glen Beck was claiming after all, right? He called them 'Socialist Sympathizers')
Second bolded part - Fully agree. Most people in a spotlight of any kind do this. They speak before they think and then claim someone hacked their twitter account when they realize what exactly they just said.
Third bolded - How do you think I feel being from Texas? Apparently according to popular opinion, we hate anything that "ain't white" according to the mass media's perspective on the intelligence level of Texans. I formulate my own opinion and go with that. When I am proven wrong, I adjust, but I do not take people at face value. I was raised to put in work in all avenues of life; physical, spiritual, intellectual. If I am given something that requires my thought, I will put my all into it before making claim to give a definitive and absolute answer or stance.
