Re: “Being non-racist is not good enough

Two things...

You make a good point that being non-racist isn't good enough. But don't tell us clearly what we need to do beyond that.

It was apparently 1 juror who caused the mistrial. Other than seating an all black jury, how do you deal with that in the next trial?

Lord Lord Lord. I have forgiveness in my heart. There are still slaves in S.C.
This time stop praying so hard , get off your knees and get some black jurors.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

You read the next line and realized it was sarcasm, surely? Trump voters are not all out "joining hate groups" just like Clinton voters are not all out rioting and committing assaults or joining violent leftist movements. Some extreme outliers in each group seemingly are, though.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

"I don't judge either side by the outliers, nor would any intelligent person."

Er.....you just did. (See comment above beginning with "No, "the Trump-fearers" are just rioting")

But to say trumpsters are all behaving non-violently is not true. If HRC had won, you thing trumpsters would sit back and say all is well? Hell, they don't do it when they won:

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

People that voted for Trump are overwhelmingly calm and will remain calm and supportive of friends and neighbors, regardless of their political beliefs. Just like in 2008 and 2012 when most of those same people were on the losing side.

There are nutjob fringe elements on both sides. I don't judge either side by the outliers, nor would any intelligent person.

If civil liberties of American citizens are actually threatened, whether it's the 1st or 2nd Amendments or others, Trump supporters are on the correct side of the issue, I assure you.

Stricter immigration controls from nations associated with terrorists that have attacked US people and interests are not civil rights violations, and we must be honest that the majority of terrorist attacks in the world today are associated with Islam. There is no registry of American Muslims nor will there be. Muslims are not being rounded up, nor will they be. Your advice to stay calm is very timely.

Re: “A theory against hate

I see they had to take down one at least hate-filled, threatening comment already. Point proven. This 57 year old white woman will stand by all disenfranchised people. Hate cannot be allowed to reign.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

I was thinking about the differing responses in our community in Charleston, not the response in faraway cities. Thanks for reminding me, some anti-Trump protesters are indeed behaving violentlybut there's always a violent faction in every group. Not every conservative bombs abortion clinics.

But the main point is, we all need to calm down and reach out to each other, and be aware that civil liberties and institutions need to be defended, because a threat to one is a threat to all.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

No, "the Trump-fearers" are just rioting, burning shit, faking hate crimes and getting arrested for making false police reports, assaulting Trump supporters, blocking roads and other lunatic stuff that didn't happen after Obama got elected.

What? You don't like Trump and you didn't do any of that and I shouldn't generalize? Fascinating!

Hide behind your fake names and lack of profile pictures, Foghorn and Swamp Rabbit, and make your thinly veiled threats. We won't hide from the hatred you won't even claim with real names.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

The apprehensive reaction to the Trump presidency is different from the fear Obama's election engendered in two critical respects.

First, Obama, a Harvard Law alumnus and seasoned Democrat, gave no real reason to be afraid. President-Elect Trump, on the other hand, is a self-centered fear-mongering plutocrat, with no experience compromising the way political leaders of pluralistic societies, by definition, must.

Second, the Trump-fearers are not buying up guns and ammo or joining hate groups. We are joining community outreach groups, wearing safety pins, and writing poems, and trying to understand what's bothering the Trump voter so much. And when the call for religious minorities to register is announced, we will all go and register.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

Why do writers think it's cute to add ironic hipster throw-away lines to their biography. It negates their interrectual integrity.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

If all Muslims are expected to answer for and be punished for an extremely small portion of their population, maybe we need a white male registry and require all white men to be held accountable for their angry fundamentalists. After all, they shoot a lot of people and blow up a lot of stuff too.

Re: “A theory against hate

I didn't vote for either of the two clowns that were running for president, but I sure this precious snowflake Ms. Gilchrist, who now is in a "terrible funk since Nov. 8" because she feels a "weird, aggressive anger from some folks whose man had won" was the same woman that was calling all those who were going to voted for Trump racists, sexists, mouth-breathers, homophobes, etc. Better run to that safe-space, and don't forget your tin hat.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

MANDATORY RELIGIOUS-BASED NATIONAL REGISTRATIONS!!!!

What is this, the National Inquirer? Nah, just another ranting 1%er radical leftist chicken little....Jeez, where does the CCP find these people?....Anyone who can hold a crayon gets to write an OP, as long as their opinion is so out of the mainstream as to be in the forest.

I believe the idea is to provide restrict immigration vetting from war-torn countries that might have potent radial Islamic terrorists posing as refugees, sort of like the way we had restricted immigration vetting during WWII when Nazi terrorists were attempting to enter the country as refugees to cause sabotage. Tuesday's terror incident at Ohio State proves the point.

I suppose if we where in 1942, the CCP would have members of the German American Bund writing OPs attempting to shame us for not letting in all refugees from the Fatherland.
