If you were tormented by bullies throughout your formative years and that bullying continued well into adulthood (in fact it continues today by gop leadership and various theological entities, given that I'm a faggot), you would be 100% against installing one as your leader. He is 100% opposite of what this country has held up as role models for our future generations yet everyone seems ok with an asshole in control of the world. Goes 100% against most christians upbringing, yet they support his boorish and disrespectful behavior. I'm ashamed of this countries citizens.
Swamp rabbit, your comment seems to have been deleted. I am a white person, and found your comment offensive. Would like to talk to you on the phone, my phone number is 317.201.5454. Please call me so we can have a conversation.
CCSD is driving this train and they should not be as they are not putting any funding into the renovation. CCSD leadership is running scared from addressing the real options available. They are intimidated by African Amercian leadership whom I found to be very open-minded about the options available on the penisula. The renovation numbers as described above are way off City of Charleston estimates. I know all these comments to be factual as I spent better part of 10 months meeting with everyone from state, county, city, Citadel, etc. discussing the many options available. Going to take strong leader to take this issue on and take the lead (that leader has not emerged yet). That leadership does not exist right now at CCSD and I am hopeful that it is Mayor Tecklenburg that stands up and does the right thing. Building back at Stoney Field is not the right thing to do.
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!
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.
Is that a threat Swamp Rabbit?
Please include this 64 year old white woman as a liberal miscreant and all those that stand with me and Shani.
PS: And I'll be damned if that flag will go back up.
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.
Why do writers think it's cute to add ironic hipster throw-away lines to their biography. It negates their interrectual integrity.
I dream to create a hospitality high school focused on the hospitality Industry in Charleston. I think Burke would be a great location to start this off. It offers so much that we could all benefit.
Thank you for this article!!! Like the song says "I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid, just as long as you stand by me." <3
Again another cartoon based on complete falsehoods. There are no "nazis" in the future Trump administration.
Steve Bannon ( the person i assume your besmirching) has been nothing short of supportive of the Jewish people and Israel. He cofounded Brietbart with Andrew who was Jewish. Ivanka Trump is Jewish. Hundreds of Jewish people have come out in support of Mr Bannon.
This is a non story and misleading falsehood. I really wish your research into issues was better before you put your crude style to work.
No one should worry.. Our nation is not being run by racists or anti-semites
btw Jack is prob rolling over in his grave with your misuse of Captain America. He was a staunch conservative and WW2 veteran. You indeed should apologize for misusing his character.
Trump needs to address the nation ASAP about the surrogate violence that is cropping up nationwide in his name. This is going to get much more dangerous and deadly unless he calms his "people".
