President Franklin Delano Roosevelt said,

“We must scrupulously guard the civil rights and civil liberties of all citizens, whatever their background. We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred is a wedge disguised to attack our civilization.”

The Ultimate Guide To Mitt Romney’s Convention Speech

Mitt Romney

Politicians from both parties twist facts or spin policy, but Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign has had a particularly strained relationship with the truth, repeating false claims with impunity — even after fact checkers, mainstream media organizations, and blogs have all debunked their assertions.

From claiming that “Obama gutted the welfare work requirement” to insisting that his own policies won’t deregulate Wall Street, Romney has led a post-truth campaign. A top adviser even admitted earlier this week, “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.”

ThinkProgress has compiled a Viewer’s Guide comparing what Romney says with the facts:

Romney on His Tax Plan


“The highest income people will continue to pay the largest share of the tax burden and middle-income taxpayers, under my plan… So, we’re not going to reduce taxes for high-income people.” [CBS, 8/12/2012]

Abolish all U.S. bias crime laws

Subject: Abolish All American Bias Crime Laws

All federal, state and local bias crime laws should be abolished.

The creation of initial bias crime laws, or the possible addition of categories like disability, gender, age or sexual orientation to existing bias crime laws, are repeatedly discouraged by citizens who make observations like “all crimes are bias crimes.” They point to the recent death penalty or life imprisonment convictions for highly publicized bias crimes which ended in deaths, and say no further punishment is possible anyway.

Opponents of the addition of sexual orientation to existing bias crime laws, especially, take the time to assure everyone of their lack of bias against those who are not heterosexual. They declare that they simply do not want to create a special class of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered citizens, who would be granted special protection through greater penalties than those available to the heterosexual majority. They say they fear the punishment or intimidation of the thoughts or beliefs, or potential infringement upon the First Amendment free speech rights, of religious heterosexuals who choose to oppose equal rights for those who are not heterosexual.
