I believe in Charleston that we can set the stage for what being united, by keeping Burke alive and well. Being united first has to start at the local government level. It's always been to my understanding that the county,city,and state governments support the same people. Then why not each do their part to save an institution that can unite and serve everyone well.
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.
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.
Everything you mentioned has already either been proven false or suspect !
Some of those allegations come from a divorce and upset ex wife. We all know how charged that can be.
"Reports that Bannon had told his ex-wife that he doesnt want their children to go to school with Jews were.... utterly untrue,
Its pretty much grasping at straws when all they have is a disgruntled ex-wife in a contentious divorce document making a claim that he disputed.
Please do some more research into the man's actual deeds not words and what other well respected Jewish Americans say about the man.
Israel has no bigger supporter than Steve Bannon..and Andrew Breitbart.
"Israels ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer, and Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel have publicly backed Bannon, as have other Jewish groups, including the Zionist Organization of America."
No American Citizen should be worried about the incoming administration.
Trump just found out he doesn't have the power or finesse to save ALL our jobs - just another corporate crony. https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteveryth…
Bannon's a documented bigot.....anti-semite (too many Jewish kids at his child's school will make his and all kid's whiny brats), anti-gay (referring to lesbians as "Dykes" and the trans-gendered as "Trannies") and anti-woman as reflected by his own approved Brietbart articles:
"Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy"
"There's No Hiring Bias Against Women in Tech, They Just Suck At Interviews"
"The Solution To Online 'Harassment' Is Simple: Women Should Log Off"
Don't know if that defines him as a "Nazi" but he shares some aspects of their mindset and he certainly thinks men are superior to women and non-Jewish (of whatever sort) superior to the Jewish since they are whiny brats and all.
And he certainly lacks respect for ALL humans, which is enough to question his character and motivation as a "Chief Strategist" to the leader of the free-world.
Include me, a 52 year old white woman, as well! I stand with Debbie McDaniel, Shani Gilchrist, Amanda Hamilton and all the other folks who are against hate and threats and second-class citizenship for certain Americans.
Obama and Clinton need to address the nation ASAP about the numerous politically and racially violent incidents committed by their supporters. They need to calm their "people."
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!
