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.

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

Re: “Can Burke High School unite Charleston?

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.

Re: “Stegelin: If Nazi something, say something!

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.

Re: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

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".

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: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

^ Your dad didn't fight in a war to protect a flag. He fought to protect what the flag stands for, which are all of the freedoms we enjoy. One of those freedoms being the freedom to express oneself without reproach from the government. This includes flag burning. It's one of the great ironies in this country that people get so worked up about things like flag burning and not standing for the national anthem and not reciting the pledge of allegiance and still claim to love freedom. They only love the freedom that is convenient and doesn't make them feel uncomfortable. This makes them hypocrites. In World War 2 we were fighting AGAINST countries that did punish its own citizens for speaking out against the government.

Truthus, the bill Clinton CO-sponsored that you are referring to was to prevent flag burning when it was done to incite violence or terrorism. It was a few years after 9/11 when the histrionics about patriotism were still on full blast. I still don't agree with it but don't pretend that is anywhere near the same thing as what Donald Trump is saying now.

Re: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

@Truthrus: Hillary's bill protected flag burning in protest while criminalizing it in provocation. "Fighting words" are not protected speech. Points deducted for making it a bill, points deducted for making it a bill that is redundant, points awarded for protecting the right to protest. Trump's real problem statement is revocation of citizenship, which takes this from "ill advised" to "disastrous." Did Hillary include that in the SB she sponsored? Would you agree that Trump's idea is thus absolutely worse?

@Frank: I am a veteran and I have a deep and abiding belief in protection of unpopular speech, including burning the flag. My feelings are not what need protecting from the government, but instead peoples' right to express their grievances. So even if I was made to feel sick by seeing it, I feel sick about a lot of the protected speech that flies around this country.

Re: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

My dad volunteered for WW2 when he was 17. 17 years old! He & millions of other boys did the same in order to protect the American Flag. He passed last month at the age of 90. His casket was covered with the American flag! Let me ask all those "freedom of speech" supppoters, if that was your dad or brother or aister, who fought for our country, do you feel ok with some idiot burning our flag? Use a maegaphone, you piece of poop!!

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.

And so did Hillary, she sponsored a bill trying to do the same. But that is an inconvenient truth that you wont mention. And laws along with court rulings change. and something else is then established law. And any time tupper says I would think, a reasonable person somewhere wishes he would.
