"the media is not reporting the full story"
Neither does your link. What happened leading up to that clip? A little context goes a long way.
Warwit, I received no beating, and am not a Klan member and I provoked nothing and got nothing that was coming to me since there was nothing DUE to come to me. I'm a 60 y/o greybeard on a cane. I know what I saw and it was wrong. What I saw was entirely different from what we saw here in Charleston. Look at the comments on that link and you can make your own conclusions about the event. It's got nothing to do with me. I am somewhat flummoxed that the media is not reporting the full story. The Truth Is Out There!
So quit trying to make my communications something that they are not and remember, two wrongs do not make a right.
SunKing, you're pretty distraught over that beating you received. I would suggest that you not attend future KKK rallies if this is an issue for you. Your cries of injustice are falling on deaf ears since you openly provoked Columbia's "knockout game" community and got what was coming to you.
Joseph Goebbels would be proud of that bit of propaganda. How many members or friends of the KKK do you think are in law enforcement, judiciary and the military? These guys look like normal people (well, mostly, I guess). This does nothing to heal. Look at the video I posted above, then read the comments. A few people get it that the violence which occurred was detrimental to all sides. Columbia failed to take the example of Charleston.
"He lumped all South-of-the-Border immigrants as Mexicans..."
It's always nice to be reminded that South of the Border™ continues to thrive.
Pedro no do no quitting. Stronger than ever.
Just spent two weeks there with Mrs. Pronghorn.
.... so much for Mr Trump's chances. zero.
All our veterans - particularly POWs have earned our respect and admiration.
The exact quote is..
"When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably— probably— from the Middle East. But we don’t know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening. And it’s got to stop and it’s got to stop fast."
Regardless if you agree with him or not. It helps to deal in facts.
First and foremost he was referring to ILLEGAL immigrants. A very important word in any discussion and one that seems to get dropped more and more in any discussion.
He lumped all South-of-the-Border immigrants as Mexicans, and said that only the criminals, rapists, murderers are coming. He did add a caveat that some might be good people. Might. Maybe he can run for British parliament next under the UKIP.
That is not what Mr Trump said.
Of course, never let the truth get in the way of making an editorial cartoon ..
“There is no way that she did not know what was going on, that women were being abused and accosted by her husband,” Jones said in an interview.
“They have both lied,” she said.

The Clintons are no option at all.
Just as Mark Sanford should never have been reelected to a public office, so should Mrs Clinton never be given a chance to hold our trust again.
Y'all don't know what potholes are.... go to the Northeast in March!
Yes, I said that. Thanks for repeating.
However, the data does clearly disprove "more guns = more violence" since we have a lot more of the former in homes and on the streets now and a lot less of the former.
correlation is not causation
If we use inconvenient things like facts, we learn that:
-According to FBI UCR (Uniform Crime Reporting) stats, violent crime in the US is presently at the lowest rate in nearly 40 years
-In the past three decades, as states have voted in expanded concealed carry licensing, the amount of guns lawfully carried on the street, in stores, in restaurants, at work, etc has increased drastically. There are now something like 11,000,000 Americans with such licensing. Plus, gun sales overall have increased a lot (but comparing NICS background check numbers).
So, what we learn from that is that more guns does not equal more crime. Obviously, I wouldn't assign sole causative effect from a more armed population to less violent crime, but clearly the inverse isn't true.
Good one, Steve. I'm always amazed when they say MORE guns would mean LESS violence. LMAO!
If the IAM and NLRB had their way you wouldn't have Boeing cartoons to draw, they wouldn't be in SC in the first place! Unions are prehistoric at least draw a brontosaurus or something to represent them.
Having not picked up the P&C in years, I can't speak to any cartoons they may have recently run, but can assure you any similarities are purely coincidental. It happens.
Wow, a complete rip-off on an editorial cartoon published a week ago in the P&C. Shame shame
