    If you want to take down the statues, then go ahead. But then be aware that any other statues or symbols that some other group finds offensive will also have to come down as well. What's fair game for one group is fair game for the other.

    Divide and conquer? Then I would be asking the mayor of Charlottesville and Governor McAuliffe why they told the police to stand down. Why did they allow this violence to escalate? Maybe they wanted a little action to take place. Maybe it got a little out of hand. McAuliffe has told so many lies in connection with this incident that he will have to have a nose job. If I were the parents of the dead girl, I would be suing the perps, the driver of the car, the mayor of Charlottesville, the governor of VA, and the VA state police for millions and millions.

    If we don't worship murderers, then why is Grant's Tomb not being taken down? Is it because he was on the "winning side"? What convoluted logic...

    Beatle records? Is that the best you got?

    It's an example. I'd say censoring medicinal research is a more devastating example.

    Why do you always avoid answering simple questions?

    I don't. Why do you make such a claim? I answered every question, even the nonsense of you comparing MLK to David Duke.

    Its okay...don't bother.

    No problem showing you that your protecting mass murderers like Lee is not what America stands for, quite the opposite actually. King George did the same as the GOPers kicking down doors. Protecting big pharma profits over Americans health is oppression the same as segregation and lynching.

    I know you can't answer.

    Isn't it blatantly clear you don't know jack shit enough to even ask pertinent questions.

    The running over of the woman in Charlottesville was a horrible tragedy.

    Tolerance eh?

    Now why does the left want to suppress free speech?

    Screaming fire in crowded theaters is not covered by free speech. Promoting hate and violence as the 3K and White Inferiorists do is also not considered free speech. I know its over your tiny brains ability to see it. But when you create victims then it is not free speech. Pulling down the statue of a murdering killer is a service to mankind.

    Why does the left want to tear down statues,
    as if that is going to change history?

    Because we don't worship mass murderers the same as we don't put up statues to remember Polio or the Plague. History was changed when Lee got his ass whooped. Now we aim to prevent it from happening again.

The running over of the woman in Charlottesville was a horrible tragedy. Now why does the left want to suppress free speech? Why does the left want to tear down statues, as if that is going to change history? Apparently, being offended is no longer allowed in this country. MLK might have been a great man and civil rights leader, but there may be some people somewhere in this country who don't agree. According to your logic and way of thinking from the left, their grievances must be heard and acted upon no matter how illogical it appears to the majority.

    And if you think the democrats still represent and work for the interests of the working men and women in this country, you are either deluded or naive, or maybe both.

    I'm not worried about the neocons coming for me. I'm more worried that the Alt-left will come knocking. After all, their feeling might be hurt.

  • Charlottesville   1 day 7 hours ago
    What will these people say when a right-wing mob tears down a statue of Dr. King? What would these people say if a mob of pro-life zealots tore down an abortion clinic,

    Hey Braindead. MLK never advocated killing whites as the White Inferiorists do and have done to people of color. Are you advocating an end to Neonazi's and the alt reich by the same means they stopped the person Martin Luther King? Not the message that is stronger than ever. As for abortion clinics. You've already been there done that.

    "I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good...Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a Biblical duty, we are called by God, to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism."

    If the left wears no swatiskas then why do they want to do away with free speech?

    Like by running over women with cars?

    Why are they so intolerant? Pretty soon the Alt-left will be calling for book bannings because someone is offended.

    Like the southern stratergists did to Beatle records?

    I'm personally against all censorship, including banning the "N" word in lit. Especially when the GOPers censor medicinal research.

    It's funny how much things have changed. The democrats used to be the party of the working man. Now they are the party of elitists, bigots, fascists, and corporate America.

    You have a weird sense of humor if you think oppression is funny. The small case democrats and republicans have been usurped by the Neocons serving the G-20 with no allegiance to the U.S. Now the Unions protect the corporations and government thugs more than workers who's jobs were outsourced. You side with the Wall St fascist and whine about poor people protesting. That is just as lame and weak as it gets in my book. R.E. Lee was a convicted Traitor who killed 50,000 Americans trying to preserve slavery. That you think is their right or liberty or freedom to do. Same as Nixon killing thousands of Americans sabotaging the Paris Peace talks making deals with the enemy in Vietnam. if they surrendered after the election. Or the millions of Americans persecuted by the drug war based on Conservatude lies. I see you really like being dumbed down in school and by the MSM so I'll let you deal with your torment in peace.

    Conservatives Have Larger 'Fear Centers' in Their Brains 12 Apr 2011
    British study shows conservatives' brains tend to have larger amygdalas, which responsible for primitive emotions. Conservatives' brains have larger amygdalas than the brains of liberals. Amygdalas are responsible for fear and other "primitive" emotions. At the same time, conservatives' brains were also found to have a smaller anterior cingulate -- the part of the brain responsible for courage and optimism.

    There is a cure.

    Sorry you see it that way, but having been in the classroom, and having specifically dealt with the most troubled and troublesome students my entire career, I can safely say what I envision is anything but a baby sitter, and most definitely an educator. Having UOA or Unconditional Other Acceptance is not coddling them. It's simply accepting that whatever they think, feel, say or do is understandable given what their life experiences have been. That doesn't mean you have to tolerate it. I challenged my kids on a regular basis, but they're more likely to respond to it in a positive way when they know you have UOA. Challenging their thinking, attitudes and beliefs is key to their emotions and behavior changing for the better. Helping them see the dysfunctionality of such things is truly education, not babysitting. Sticking someone in a detention hall, or In School Suspension and just expecting them to sit and be quiet is babysitting. Doing what I'm talking about is anything but. And it's tough and challenging work, but extremely rewarding. People often think these types of kids like being where they are, but they don't - they settle for it, because they don't see any hope of anything better, or ever having what other kids have. I teach them there is hope and show them how to get there.

  • Trump Ramps Up War Rhetoric   1 day 9 hours ago

    It really doesn't matter who is president, the policies are the same. Ever since the Bush43 led coup d'etat, certain policies have been pursued and it doesn't matter whether it is a Democrat or a Republican in office, things remain the same. The N. Koreans, during the Bush administration offered to de-escalate but Bush43 scuttled that. Under Obama, the N. Koreans again profferd a stabilizing peace plan which Obama flatly turned down. All of this inflammatory language out of Trump is at the behest of the military-industrial complex that has been, and continues to poke sticks into the eye of any other nation available to start another war. And the real reason for war with N. Korea is (1) an excuse to ramp up the military and siphon off even more money from us taxpayers, and (2) N. Korea is a mountain of untapped minerals and precious metals that is worth gah-jillions to the industrialists. However, these idiots somehow forget that nuclear bombs have radio-active fall-out that traels the world on the winds. If they had two live brain cells between the lot of them, they'd have a real close look at the devastation that took place in Japan after we bombed them, and realize that there are NO WINNERS with this type of aggression. I'll say it again: The real problem is We, the People, who are sitting back and accommodating all of this insanity. Too many people are on the corporate payroll; to include over half of the people who work in government jobs who are actually subcontract workers provided by the private sector, and not true public sector worker for the government at all. So, when we hear this argument about government being too big, it's a Red Neck, Red Herring, false, Red Flag, LIE.

  • Charlottesville   1 day 10 hours ago

    Now an Alt-left mob descends on Durham:

    Police did nothing, arrested no one. What an appalling scene — even if you think that Confederate statues should come down. Why was it appalling? Because this is how the rule of law ends: in the violent frenzy of mob action.

    This is the ultimate end of identity politics of all kinds. You cannot reason with it. It grounds Truth in identity — in race, in ethnicity, in religion, in sex, and so forth. Its lethal alchemy turns people into arguments, or rather, assertions masquerading as arguments. You cannot argue with an identity politics zealot, because to deny their assertion is to deny their personhood. In turn, you aren’t simply wrong when you disagree with those zealots; you are a threat to their existence. Having depersonalized you, they owe you no respect. The higher cause of asserting and affirming their identity excuses everything.

    Again: this is how the rule of law ends, and law is replaced by will to power. An angry mob, no matter what it stands for, is always the enemy of the truth.

    That Durham mob (and what it represents) is a far, far greater threat to this country today than Confederate monuments, and what they represent. Where were the police yesterday? Why did they let this happen?

    This is a very big deal. You want to see far-right white mobs descending upon civil rights monuments, desecrating them and even tearing them down? That mob in Durham has just laid the groundwork for it. And when the white nationalist mob comes in with clubs swinging, to what is this left-wing mob going to appeal for protection, having defied the same law that protects them and public monuments in their zeal to destroy what offends them?

  • Charlottesville   1 day 13 hours ago

    The problem with your information is that nobody cares about David Duke. Nobody cares about what he thinks, or what he does. But Robert Byrd was a US senator for over 50 years. So he apologized. That's good, so I guess that excuses him. By that logic, if Trump would apologize then everything would be okay and forgotten. Right? I mean he did call out everybody. Right?

    If you are going to start taking down any symbol that happens to offend someone, then why stop with the Civil War?

    The only people wearing swatiskas are the Alt-left groups. Who is trying to shut down the free speech of any group that it doesn't like, and willing to use violence to do it? The Alt-left.

    The second group is conservative Republicans, which disapprove of legalization by 62% to 33%. What’s interesting here is other subsets of Republicans, by Pew’s measurements, show support for legalization by a 2:1 margin. It’s the conservative wing that is tilting the overall Republican category.

    The remark came in response to a question submitted by Tom Angell of the pro-legalization group Marijuana Majority. Angell asked Tyson if he agreed with astrophysicist Carl Sagan that marijuana should be legalized. “If you really analyze it,” Tyson said, “relative to other things that are legal, there’s no reason for it to ever have been made illegal in the system of laws.” continued

    If anyone truly wants to deal with racism and bigotry then the top priority is the Ganjawar. Its the only remaining legal racism. Real estate and city counsels used to maintain segregation by not selling to minorities. Every inch of land was bought and nothing sold to blacks. Schools were segregated into the 70's.

When he tried to say its all the same and violence is bad but not to the point of calling it domestic terrorism. He said many sides to blame.

Or kids needing tuition assistence to get out of the Ghetto except they were victims of stop and frisk Nazi laws. Like a coward he is appeasing bigots for votes. But I don't just conclude its a GOP exclusive.

    At least Robert Byrd apologized. What’s your excuse, David Duke?
    Republicans of all stripes were right to clobber Donald Trump for his failure to disavow support from David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan. But some Trump supporters are so desperate to somehow prove that Democrats also harbor racists that they are dredging up the name of the late senator Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.)

    Nice try. And a pathetic one at that.

    In an interview with The Post about his book, Byrd said, “I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times … and I don’t mind apologizing over and over again. I can’t erase what happened.”

    Trump’s failure to denounce Duke, the Klan and the white supremacy they still believe in is a black eye for the Republican Party, an insult to the American people and an affront to our democracy.

    That was a link in a chain of Drumpf giving credence to white supremests. The most recent in Charlotsville. Can't hide the white streak down the skunks back or the yellow belly of of a gutless leader like Drumpf.

    Duke is described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “the most recognizable figure of the American radical right, a neo-Nazi, longtime Klan leader and now international spokesman for Holocaust denial.”

    If all the confederate statues need to come down, then I want everything with Robert C. Byrd's name on it taken down since he was in the Klan once upon a time.

    Byrd was a Dixiekrat and made a choice to stay with the New Democrats who parted ways with the Southern Diixiekrats. Unlike Thurman who remained a segregationist and joined Nixon with the other southern democrats who joined the GOP when Wallace was taken out of the way, for Nixon to win. It's getting repetitive with you coal dust. Nice try. And a pathetic one at that.

    The Republican Party's Race Problem and Strom Thurmond's Legacy
    A new book argues that Strom Thurmond left the party with a poisonous legacy on race. By Jordan Michael Smith.
    Williamson disputed the debate-ending fact that Southern Democrats transferred to the Republican Party primarily because it was retrograde on racial issues. More honest conservatives, among them National Review’s Ramesh Ponnuru, have written candidly of conservatives’ failure to grapple with the history. But Williamson’s is still the dominant view on the right wing.

    Anyone doubting the myths conservatives cling to must consult Strom Thurmond’s America, a well-researched new book by Joseph Crespino, a historian at Emory University. The longtime South Carolina senator was representative of the trajectory so many Southern Democrats embarked on in the 1960s. As the Democrats abandoned their longtime hostility to African-Americans’ civil rights in the 1940s, Thurmond and his compatriots moved to the Republican Party. Thurmond “quit the Democratic Party at the high-water mark of the civil-rights revolution, helped Barry Goldwater win five Deep South states in 1964, and led a historic shift of white Southerners into the GOP”.

    What Donald Trump didn't say when he talked about white supremacists
    Much of the commentary focused on the timing of the statement and why Trump didn't specifically condemn racist hate groups immediately rather than waiting for several days. Yet the statement also lacked one powerful -- and critical -- component: Trump failed to specifically reject support of the white nationalists, racists and bigots who say they back him.
