Being intolerant of intolerant assholes isn't 'intolerance,' it's being a compassionate normal human being and calling you guys out on your bullshit.
Don't worry--allowing homosexuals the rights afforded all consenting adults isn't going to devalue your boring sexless marriage.
Full Definition of RACISM
1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
2: racial prejudice or discrimination
Who is the one that needs to check websters.com ?
Care to support your view of Mr Trump with any facts?
Leemajors, thanks for making my point
Call Columbia and see how they've done it.
Sir, how will you fight off God and His Judgment for you and your community ? and what else do you have to do before God and Man ?
what is left for the sodomite community, shut all the church doors that preach salvation in Christ and the need for repentance of the sinners .How can a city like Charleston call itself "The Holy City" and then hold their first Gay pride parade with all the wickedness and unclean persons marching down the streets ? I have noticed that one of the people act and dress as a man in the relationship and one dresses as a female. ! What wickedness the people condone and support in Charleston. God is taking notice folks.
So are you saying conservative whites aren't concerned about 'peaceful resistance'
when it's conservative whites resisting? Do please cite an example of what the heck you are talking about.
I'm a liberal white, and I'm concerned about large groups of people going mad on the streets and turning on lone people, becoming a mob of sadistic cowards...white, black or yellow. I believe in freedom (Legalize Marijuana!) and I believe that the laws are wrongly established to ensure that more blacks than whites are in jail and I don't like it....but I also believe in law and order. The members of a mob should be rounded up and punished.
When was the last time you saw conservative whites gang beating a minority then blogging how it was "the right thing to do", or laughing about it online in large numbers? And then have the press not even discuss it, let alone even report on it even though it happened in the shadow of the State House?
Did the murder of the Emmanuel 9 evoke this kinda of behavior? NO! Again, it seemed to bring the black and white communities closer together.
And typically the fellows attached to their guns seem to be more afraid of the government than blacks.
And if I don't call them blacks, then what term do I use? African-American? PAH! You're either an American or not. Get with the program.
I could tell after the first paragraph, this article was going to be a complete waste of time.
"Love how liberals want to "educate us" translation "make you think like us" and if you don't you are an intolerant A-hole"
You guys are OBJECTIVELY intolerant assholes.
Education was never the right's strong suit. Re-education maybe, not actual education.
McGinley must have a death wish. She leaves the most dysfunctional School Board in the country to join the ranks of the second most? She's a good lady, and I have no idea why she wants to subject herself to some more pain and suffering.
Congrats Tup! Y'all been together for a long time. I hoped you danced to some Adore!
My husband and I married in May on Folly and Hamby Catering was there for us and everything was excellent including the most delicious cake. I recommend them, as well as With This Kiss Charleston planning services who coordinated the event. We were apprehensive in the beginning when we started planning but not one service company balked. We were met with congratulations at every turn along the way. In fact, at the ceremony, we were also met with applause from the beach goers and those on nearby balconies - zero "dissent" from anyone. So glad to live in the progressive Charleston area where EVERYONE is welcome.
Gay Weddings = Best Receptions of ALL time hands down. Please, please invite me to any that will have Till death do us Party (I adore Adore) or Take me up High on the set list.
You know, conservative whites are only concerned about 'peaceful resistance' when it comes to minorities.
Otherwise, they wouldn't be so attached to their goddamned guns in order to fight the redcoats or 'blacks' (as you put it) or whatever.
I wish I knew the context of this incident and the one I witnessed. I don't.
But being a human being, the context of a gang-beating is to some point irrelevant. When 20-30 people chase a single man and then 4+ people hit and kick him (regardless of race) they are cowards committing a crime, in my book. End of story.
I still wonder why and who allowed these two groups to assemble on the same day and in the hottest part of a very hot day. And then post the image of a helpful black state trooper and Sousaphone serenades...yet fail to report in any detail whatsoever about the violence surrounding this event. Odd.
Funny observation about the failure to plan their exit, but with the hundred or so law enforcement surrounding the state house and general area, law enforcement people should have planned for it. The gang beating I saw was about 30 feet from 4-5 mobile units and at least 10 officers. Remember the old poster, "Sleep tight tonight, your Air Force is awake"?
Being a human being, I have sympathy for any one person being beset upon by a group of cowardly thugs. (Well, unless he was caught hurting a child, sexually or otherwise.)
Would you have our heritage of slavery, segregation and lynching replaced by another group chasing down and gang beating a lone person, then bragging about it like they had done something noble? That kind of plan might backfire on you.
I would rather see a peaceful unification. Stop the hatred, stop the Injustice, stop the poverty.
The violence demonstrated by blacks at the rally, set things back. That is not the way to solve the racial problem.
"Graham is a big-government progressive hack and no where near a conservative."
Graham is the most viable candidate of your clown car full of assholes, and he is a total hawkish chicken-little pussy.
"Trump's comments weren't in the least racist either,"
webster.com is a good place to research words that may be challenging to you.
Trump is a walking monument of privileged, racist white guys.
"I don't understand how anyone can have sympathy for idiots who are literally proud to call themselves Nazis and get a beating for it."
Because in the eyes of our vocal fascist majority, white people are the REAL victims.
The racist bible-beating, gun-toting assholes in this state make me want to fucking puke. Fuck our heritage of slavery, segregation and lynching.
Very well said and thank you for looking for positive ways to improve our community. Another writer for this paper, Mr. Moredock, would be well served following your example instead of leading his life with the hate filled point of view that he has. There are so many problems we have that could easily be solved by talking and listening to others instead of screaming at and ignoring them. The dignity and grace that was shown by this community after the Emmanuel 9 massacre should be an example for us to all strive for every day.
The full story as far as I can tell is that those brash KKK geniuses didn't account for the fact that they have to walk back to the parking lot after spewing all their hate.
I don't understand how anyone can have sympathy for idiots who are literally proud to call themselves Nazis and get a beating for it.
