Re: “I don't know about you, I'm voting for Trump's penis

I think of all politicians regardless of gender as big penises, or is it penii or penes? Mr. Pimp, you have a wealth of penis knowledge, do you know the proper plural?

Jenny has no penis and obviously no idea that there are independents running, also.

Hitler had a micro-penis. And one of testicles failed to drop.

Re: “The tragic but undeniable truth about Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots

I find this article to be terribly written by someone with absolutely NOT A DROP OF CLASS! TO WRITE THIS ARTICLE THE SAME DAY SCOTT WIELAND DIES FROM AN OVERDOSE....ONLY shows what a cold-hearted, money hungry piranha this creep is. You couldn't even wait until his family and friends had the chance to absorb the terribly sad news they've been given to deal with? You are the most judgemental piece of S**T I've ever heard from? Go judge your own life...I GUARANTEE It won't be nearly as interesting, exciting, fulfilling, or touching as that of Scott Wieland! Haters like you LOVE LOVE LOVE to put down accomplished people or bands, so you can, in some way, shape, or form, make your unsuccessful existence feel worthwhile! Get your own Life LOSER!!!

No, my friend, the jumpsuit's association with Gitmo is why they use it for their propaganda. So, yeah, you're wrong when you post a quote saying it's incidental to their propaganda. It's front and center.

Re: “The P&C's editorial board is cowardly at best, complicit at worst

"Pat, Our very existence is a recruiting tool for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi'.

Closing Guantanamo is not going to have any effect on the growth of those bastards.
The color of the jumpsuits is a ridiculous point. In reality, orange has not been used on the base since 2006 but that has not mattered to them in the least. Nor will the location of the prisoners.

The closing of the base is purely the politics of our President."

You make the absolute worst arguments for things when you don't cut and paste. If your argument is that the base closing is purely political, and has no effect on recruiting among militant Muslims, then why oppose the base closing?

If you have some other reason not to close the base, you're certainly not giving it. It sounds like you just want these people detained for no other reason than you "think" they're guilty of something.

Now, if you have any respect - at all - for the American traditions you claim to hold dear, then you have to agree that criminals, both domestic and foreign, should get a day in court. That's supposed to be something we all believe in - The Rule Of Law - and if you're being wishy-washy about it, maybe you should think about that.

So, if it isn't trials you want for the remaining detainees, what is it? Is it just never ending punishment? For crimes they have not been tried for, and in some cases not charged? Is that the type of small-government, pro-freedom ideal that you'd like to see come right on over into this country?

Oh, is that it? You're afraid if they come to the mainland then maybe, just maybe, some of your crazier friends will start making noises about the "anti-cop black people" - and maybe they should be held without trial (protip: lots of people are already held in American jails, for years, without trials and some on sketchy charges or, as we've seen recently, for debts). Are you worried that your "anti-big government" rhetoric is going to sound even weaker as you're cheer leading people being sent off to the gulag?

Or is it just easier for you to allow the people currently held in Gitmo to stay there, because letting them go might mean the last and final insult of this whole, treacherous, bullshit War on Terror: that it was all for nothing. In the end, after hundreds of thousands have died and nations lain waste and our already terrible image in the Middle East permanently stained, that it was for absolutely fucking nothing? Is that the fear?

So, please tell us - in your own words - why you feel that Guantanamo should remain open (I'm assuming you also want it to remain open in Cuba).

Artrogue, there's a reason the Islamic State puts their prisoners in orange jumpsuits when they're paraded on camera to be used as propaganda tools. I'll give you one guess what it is.

I'm more disappointed in the South Carolina dem party. I feel like they meddled in the primary unfairly. They gave Bernie zero chance to win. Pathetic. And I lost respect for one particular pol that I thought was truly a revolutionary- turns out he's just trying to move up.

Re: “The P&C's editorial board is cowardly at best, complicit at worst

The P&C did do its homework. It is you who has fallen for the Obama administration's
push to close the base on really what is just a pretext to justify a political decision.

"In Dabiq’s nine issues (the isis propaganda mag.), for example, the word “Guantanamo” appears just four times. “Israel,” “Jew,” and “Zion” together appear 133 times, and “Crusade,” 387. Even “Kashmir” and “India” together make ten appearances, while “Drone” shows up seven times. In the eighth issue of Dabiq, Guantanamo is only used in passing to mention that a mujahid was once held there. However, the world “hijrah,” or the call the immigrate to the Islamic State, is invoked 38 times. Considering that one of the four appearances of “Guantanamo” is in a footnote and that the other references appear almost incidental, it becomes obvious that Guantanamo is not a primary driver of ISIS’s English-language print propaganda."

I'm just needling Haire a bit; he redeemed himself with me when he refused to delete Hunter's disgusting columns.

Pronghorn is right, as per usual. Dwayne Green is a must-read out of morbid curiosity. His lack of command of persuasive language is awesome.

Jack Hunter is disgusting.

However, I'm surprised you're surprised, Chris, that a conservative editorial board is conservative and self-serving. Is it even noteworthy? However, what is noteworthy is your column made me thirsty and hungry. Let's go drink some liquor and eat some chicken?

Re: “The P&C's editorial board is cowardly at best, complicit at worst

Of course it's beyond shameful to have paid Jack Hunter, who was not a staff writer but a contributing columnist; I agree with TROLLSLAYER about that. His level of racism was inexcusable. I'll never forget it, and I do my best never to let him forget it -- as he tried to do when he asked Chris Haire to delete his columns:

http://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/Haireof…

Even Bill Kristol's shameful rag linked to the Moonie-broken story (I'm not going to link to it, but it's in this column):

http://www.weeklystandard.com/rand-paul-ai…

I think it's extremely important not to forget this; so I don't.

---

On an extremely less shameful, but nonetheless noteworthy misstep is the City Paper's publication of Dwayne Green as a columnist. His "writing" and "thinking" is beyond cringeworthy, and utterly transparent in motive. Dwayne Green is an insult to anyone who thinks. His transgressions are petty when it comes to Hunter, though, and I almost feel badly for mentioning him directly after a sub-human racist, but that's the way it'll have to be for me, as they're the only two people in my five (?) years of reading the City Paper that I hate.

---

On a more positive note, the City Paper was the springboard for Paul Bowers's career. I've long maintained -- even (way) before he left for the P&C -- that he's the best reporter in town.

This from a guy who had Jack "Southern Avenger" Hunter on his editorial staff?

I have to wonder how many of the trolls popping up here to "support" Bernie are actually right wingers bent on sabotage.

Re: “You can't unsee this video of Hillary Clinton getting down at the Music Farm

Fellow Democrats, support Bernie or risk losing the general election this year. Why?
https://youtu.be/QxjIDa5Ezq0

Fellow Democrats, we are GENUINE progressives pledged to either write-in Bernie Sanders in the general election or vote Green if he is not the Party nominee. Why would we do this?

We will not accept another Wall Street-backed candidate for President. While we want a woman in the White House, the United States needs a political revolution to bring an end to our plutocracy which is a government by and for wealthy people. Therefore, we cannot and will not vote for Hillary Clinton, an untrustworthy establishment candidate funded by billionaires.

If you support anyone but Senator Sanders in the primaries or caucuses, you will divide Democrats, and you will be on your own in the general election. Let's not have a repeat of the disastrous 2000 election.

We must ‪#‎UniteBehindBernie‬‬, an honest and principled Senator, or you'll risk having Donald Trump or Senator Cruz nominating the next Supreme Court judges.
