I don't mean this negatively so please don't take it that way but.... Spend some time here.
I absolutely agree with you that there is a prevailing political bend to this forum and we are absolutely among like minded people BUT there have been a few extremely spirited debates here among long term members. I have seen debates that have actually made me slightly uncomfortable as its not a good feeling to see long standing members that you have respect for argue with each other.

Given that, one of the things I love about being a member here is the fact that I'm among like minded people.
In other forums, I have been in very heated debates in one thread and at the same time, in another thread, have a very agreeable discussion with the same people, liking each other's posts, etc. But I have also had disagreements with people who have taken things so much to heart that they've stalked me in real life and threatened me with physical violence or more - and not just in gun or political forums.

I had threats from people who disagreed so fervorously about a blog article I wrote on a prominent SQL Server site about primary keys in databases that they threatened to track me down and kick my tail.

I hope that members here don't take this Internet forum stuff too personally. Even after heated debate, everyone here (and most on most sites I've participated on) seems very likable and, at the end of the day, we should all be able to go out for a beer...

Been on the internet since Al Gore invented it and even during the alt-newsgroup days. This is, hands down, the best group and men and women I've had the pleasure of spending time with online.

It didn't start with the squad; it started on June 16, 2015, when Trump announced for President. Until then, he was loved by black community and political leaders.
You post should read as follows:

When this all started with President Trump, it was based on his tweet telling the four freshmen congresswomen to go back and fix the problems at home, then come back and tell us how you did it. Any literate person who read the entire tweet would see that he was directing them to fix their congressional districts and report on how they did it. The same can be said for his tweet to Elijah Cummings. These tweets had nothing to do with race and everything to do with pointing out ineptitude if not wholesale corruption. The whole point is to DRAIN THE SWAMP! Call these elected representatives out on their shortcomings at home and point out to their constituents exactly how lame they are. Every time President Trump tweets something like this, he pokes a big gaping whole in the Democrat policies which have been failing their districts for decades.
I posted this in reference to the most recent attacks. I do agree, the race card was played when he declared for office, but the media launched this latest attack after his tweet to the freshmen. They needed a new talking point to continue their propaganda campaign and they all jumped on board while taking it out of context which ignored the intent completely. There was nothing racist in either tweet if you read the whole thing. If the conservative districts had the same problems, President Trump would probably be tweeting about them as well. He tends to be an equal opportunity referee in this game.

Best Jeff Foxworthy voice. If you are a conservative, even if you are black, you are a racist. If you support communism, even if you hate Jews, and vote for progressive democrats you can't be a racist.

Not surprisingly, I can't find the video but there was a video of Maxine Waters saying that black people can't be racist - though I'm sure she'd agree with you about conservative black people.
