    That's not responsive to my noting that your "ad hominem" charge was without foundation, that despite your making it you'd failed to illustrate any insult offered to you at all.

    I'd agree racism is more often a charge leveled at the right and by the left (or middle, for that matter). Mostly that's true because conservatives tend to be line holders and tradition protectors. Sometimes that's a very good thing. But thinking less of blacks and other minorities was in the main once and opposing it was the work of "radicals" and "progressives".

    That's one reason I've consistently noted there is a necessity and good to be found in the existence of both ideologies. They restrain the worst impulses and errors inherent in each individual approach.

    We don't happen to believe that man came from a monkey and certain monkeys are more special than other monkeys.
    And that has nothing to do with anything I've said either. So...thanks for doubling down on illustrating the ol not listening bit.

    Suits me. Easy peasy.

    But since you didn't just say that, but boxed accusations: I never labeled everyone a racist, only people whose rhetoric and actions make any other response unreasonable.

    The leftists tactics business isn't applicable because I'm not a leftist and it's a charge only the willfully ignorant would level...and before you cry ad hom, it's up to you as to what camp you fall in, so your complaint (if you have it) is with yourself.

    You already said that...is this a last word thing?

    Anyway, the thing is, if you're going to cry "ad hom" you should be able to point out a quote that is that. Otherwise, you're just offering an insult yourself, like when you call someone a leftist who isn't.
