    A top official at a liberal super PAC with the goal of eradicating tea partiers from Congress is telling activists that it’s more effective to label Republicans as racists than criticize their policies.

    According to an audio recording obtained by The Daily Caller, Matthew “Mudcat” Arnold, the national campaign manager of the liberal CREDO super PAC, told a gathering of supporters in Aurora, Colo., on Sept. 8 that they’ve realized “policy did not move voters.”

    He used Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King as an example.

    “When we said that Steve King … is pro-life and believes in cutting Social Security and voted for the Ryan budget, no one cared,” Arnold said. “When we said Steve King’s a racist, Steve King believes that immigrants ought to be put in electric fences, people moved.

    Racism is a natural outworking of our sin nature and must be personally fought like every other sin.

    Hold on for a second, gentlemen.

    On the face of it, simply calling for robust enforcement of Federal immigration laws and strengthening the border controls (north and south) is not racist.

    I don't think most Republicans are racists, but I also don't think it's mere coincidence our first Negro president is the one who gets attacked and disrespected more than any other.

    Actually he is a mulatto.

    But I do not attack him for his color, but rather his polices

    Mr. Pot meet Mr. Kettle.

    When it comes to chilling free speech the dems got nothing on republicans.

    Calling people conspiracy theorists has been more effective for you folks than entering into honest debates. Or so you'd like to think.

    Both are nothing more than trying to shut down any open and honest debates. But it sure does feel good when you're the ones doing it doesn't it fellas?

    You'll find it takes more than some little dim wit hurling insults to get me to shut up, but continue on if you must. :tongue3:

    Thanks for helping to prove me right BTW. Your timing was spot on! :thumbsup:
