quote:You have any proof that this is what she meant? I opined as you did that if she was talking about the Congress relationship with the masses of men and women in America as one of Slave and Master than she is not that far from the truth albeit the analogy still pales in comparison to what our ancestors lived through and that legacy should not be disrespected by equating it with realities far less inhumane.
I can't see the difference in whether she said house of representatives, congress, supreme court, republican dominated political posts across the board, same difference; republican dominated and controlled and the neo-republican party is dominated and controlled by racist white southerners. But I guess you may have to have been born and raised in the south and know enough about southern history to know for a fact that post slavery, the south was pretty much run in the same was as the cotton plantations were during slavery the people with money and power running everybody else, intimidating everybody else, jim crowing everybody else, people with money and power usurping people's constitutional rights and making up their own laws and regulations that keep the masses entangled within their unfair clutches, with those who knew better drained of any power against it (through convient laws, intimidation, and racist and otherwise propaganda) and those who did not know any better keep further in the dark and ignorance of what was really going on.
This country is being run by southern racists, southern good old boy networks, corporate America, policing forces that have been given damn near free raign on the masses (actually intented for Blacks and other minorities, and any whites that do not fit into the mold they have created for them).
The same tactics that the predominately republican political structure is using on the American public are the same tactics used to enslave people on plantations in America, to keep them enslaved on plantations, to dup the masses into believing that is was right, brainwashing the masses into looking the other way and/or going along with such a crime against humanity, and actually being gullible enough to go away to war and fight and die over plantation 'interest', i.e., slavery.
