I seem to see a strong correlation between people that:
1. Pillory Mandela and African nationalists for employing force against one of the most oppressive systems of government in the latter 20th century and
2. Brag of their "2nd Amendment solutions" to political issues like Obamacare and gun control, of the "coming revolution" and whatnot.
Who is Lee Bright? A copycat of bad ideas, obviously. John Galt would not have approved of this garbage, I'm sure.
And I thought the plywood was bad! Whoever is responsible for this needs to be cited for littering. With such a disrespect for the aesthetics of my town, what can we expect from him in the Senate?
Wow...this site stupid your not helping the world. All this site does is make more people racial profiles young blacks with a hip hop style...every black person is not a drug dealer or a thug...im a 30yr old black man and I have been treated like a criminal since I was ten years old...how does it feel to be followed around a store as if your going to steel, or get followed by police because your black with a nice car..then they pull u n want search for no reason...i dont know who the page is for but if you wanna do the world some justice....target sex offenders there all around your kids n mine and the best thing you have to do is talk about the young black youth.......wow...i bet one of the people behind this page is a sex offender...n dam why target the poor?
Today is the 227th birthday of the US Constitution. Most have forgotten how Dover Delaware ratified our law that still needs more reforms. But the bellicose & bigots would rather remember the Alamo Maine & Pearl than the peaceful resolution of human governance as did Mandela
The racist hateful SUPPORTERS of Nimrata Haley WOULD NEVER TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT TERRORIST Menachem Begin BUT EINSTEIN DID. NELSON MANDELA brought Truth & Reconcilliation to his nation by giving AMNESTY TO THOSE WHO CONFESS to the crimes on ALL SIDES. Bigots here in S Carolina would rather feign innocent than admit Strom Thurmond raped a 15 year old black girl and put his rapist progeny through USC while giving hate speeches & signing apartheid laws under the rebel flag. Whites stole S African land and Nelson Mandela brought peace transitioning away from White Minority rule. The old SA Constitution begins : " god and his chosen people ... " Mandela re-wrote that criminal theocracy into equality. 843-926-1750 Mandela graciously debated deKlerk and replaced murderous white only rule with a more fair democracy @LarryAccomplish
That's the first time I've heard 'plantation system of government handouts' used rationally in a public sphere. THANK YOU.
I say let all the racists and bigots have South Carolina and let the rest of the country be.
Pander to bigots and it sticks!
If you give stupid people enough rope, they will hang themselves. Let them spew on the internet. It exposes their ignorance.
Mandela may have made some mistakes as a young man, but he emerged from prison a different man. Mandela was truly admirable and, in my opinion, the equal of George Washington. Both were fathers of their country and both tried to settle differences and avoid factional strife. S. Africa is going to miss him and the examples he set.
Excellent, Chris! You are spot on.
Ned, I'm not sure what publications you were reading, but I felt that both Thurmond and Byrd were treated with equal reverence upon their passing. Still, it should be pointed out that their treatment of their respective pasts wasn't exactly the same. Byrd said he was ashamed of his time in the KKK, and said "I apologized a thousand times ... and I don't mind apologizing over and over again."
Thurmond definitely distanced himself from the racist rhetoric of his run for President, and his attempt to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957. He quieted down on the issue of race, but he never renounced his old views.
Spot on Chris. The right thrives on fear and hatred.
Chris, as always, you are right on target.
Saildude - Clearly you and others are clueless abut the current out of control violence in South Africa. Google is your fried, use it!!
Mandela was a violent man that embraced violence. Even the liberal LA Times wrote about it. http://www.latimes.com/world/worldnow/la-f…
Chris - People aren't calling Obama a communist, but he is without a doubt a socialist and openly advocates for wealth redistribution. Most progressives, however, are closeted communists or at the very least hardcore socialists that are willing to collude & sympathize with communists.
This reminds me of the deaths of Senators Byrd & Thurmond. The media bias was very real & clear. Thurmond was labelled a racist Dixiecrat while Byrd was lauded as a great humanitarian. Too bad for the left wing media that the truth was very different. Only one of those men was a vocal & active member of the KKK, and it wasn't old Strom.
You're all over it with this one, Chris. Good stuff.
No need for anything to "play out." Just let some folks talk and it comes right back in to play. Nelson Mandela "cut up babies?" Where the heck did they get THAT from?
Joseph Gadberry, did you vote for Obama? Something tells me you didn't like him long before he ever set foot in the White House. Why is that?
LMFAO Alan is right. More of the same. Race card is so 2000. People dislike Obama because he sucks as a president and is ruining our country. Not to mention a perpetual liar. But that does not make us racists, because we hate his white half too.
