"There are too many colors in this. Bernie would find that excessive and a sign of over consumption of color and have the government restrict it to just primary colors."
Hur hur hur.
Actually, Bernie would want to eliminate the distinction between primary and secondary colors, ensuring all colors enjoyed a legitimate level playing field.

Run Joe Run !
So are you saying conservative whites aren't concerned about 'peaceful resistance'
when it's conservative whites resisting? Do please cite an example of what the heck you are talking about.
I'm a liberal white, and I'm concerned about large groups of people going mad on the streets and turning on lone people, becoming a mob of sadistic cowards...white, black or yellow. I believe in freedom (Legalize Marijuana!) and I believe that the laws are wrongly established to ensure that more blacks than whites are in jail and I don't like it....but I also believe in law and order. The members of a mob should be rounded up and punished.
When was the last time you saw conservative whites gang beating a minority then blogging how it was "the right thing to do", or laughing about it online in large numbers? And then have the press not even discuss it, let alone even report on it even though it happened in the shadow of the State House?
Did the murder of the Emmanuel 9 evoke this kinda of behavior? NO! Again, it seemed to bring the black and white communities closer together.
And typically the fellows attached to their guns seem to be more afraid of the government than blacks.
And if I don't call them blacks, then what term do I use? African-American? PAH! You're either an American or not. Get with the program.
You know, conservative whites are only concerned about 'peaceful resistance' when it comes to minorities.
Otherwise, they wouldn't be so attached to their goddamned guns in order to fight the redcoats or 'blacks' (as you put it) or whatever.
I wish I knew the context of this incident and the one I witnessed. I don't.
But being a human being, the context of a gang-beating is to some point irrelevant. When 20-30 people chase a single man and then 4+ people hit and kick him (regardless of race) they are cowards committing a crime, in my book. End of story.
I still wonder why and who allowed these two groups to assemble on the same day and in the hottest part of a very hot day. And then post the image of a helpful black state trooper and Sousaphone serenades...yet fail to report in any detail whatsoever about the violence surrounding this event. Odd.
Funny observation about the failure to plan their exit, but with the hundred or so law enforcement surrounding the state house and general area, law enforcement people should have planned for it. The gang beating I saw was about 30 feet from 4-5 mobile units and at least 10 officers. Remember the old poster, "Sleep tight tonight, your Air Force is awake"?
Being a human being, I have sympathy for any one person being beset upon by a group of cowardly thugs. (Well, unless he was caught hurting a child, sexually or otherwise.)
Would you have our heritage of slavery, segregation and lynching replaced by another group chasing down and gang beating a lone person, then bragging about it like they had done something noble? That kind of plan might backfire on you.
I would rather see a peaceful unification. Stop the hatred, stop the Injustice, stop the poverty.
The violence demonstrated by blacks at the rally, set things back. That is not the way to solve the racial problem.
"I don't understand how anyone can have sympathy for idiots who are literally proud to call themselves Nazis and get a beating for it."
Because in the eyes of our vocal fascist majority, white people are the REAL victims.
The racist bible-beating, gun-toting assholes in this state make me want to fucking puke. Fuck our heritage of slavery, segregation and lynching.
The full story as far as I can tell is that those brash KKK geniuses didn't account for the fact that they have to walk back to the parking lot after spewing all their hate.
I don't understand how anyone can have sympathy for idiots who are literally proud to call themselves Nazis and get a beating for it.
"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.
