Re: “State Rep. Gilliard set to meet with Citadel president over Bannon appearance

Why does every person who thinks the white race is genetically superior look like they are about three donuts away from a diabetic coma?

Steve Bannon is a Nazi. Those who would condone his beliefs and provide him an outlet to espouse them are Nazi sympathizers at best.

Rational people thought this debate was already settled. But if we have to fight another war to prove that bigots aren't welcome, so be it. Confederates will lose again. Nazis will lose again. Hopefully next time it will be permanent.

Re: “State Rep. Gilliard set to meet with Citadel president over Bannon appearance

But where, Tupper? He has his opinions, and maybe folks of some persuasion don't agree with him, but he has the right to give a speech. Unlike the uberliberals we hear about being invited to some of our former reputable colleges, he just happens to be on the right. And when our representative Gilliard compares him to Hitler, then he is claiming to be the representative of the local blacks, where he is considered a Black community leader. I did not know the local blacks needed a "leader". They seem to be doing just fine on their own on the most part. What an insult to a complete subset of the population to say they need a person like Wendell, or that racist from NAN, to say they are "leaders". Bad choice of racists, don't you think? Oh, and you can thank NAN and Wendell to guarantee a sell out of the event over at the Citadel.

Re: “State Rep. Gilliard set to meet with Citadel president over Bannon appearance

Yeah, well, the man espouses white supremacy whose ultimate goal is to rid the world of the non-white drags on society using the white man's apparent "right" to succeed and control. That's way worse than despicable......it's inhuman. Speech that incites panic and violence (not unlike yelling "fire" in a crowded theater) should not be protected. This man is inciting the alt-right with dreadful and, sometimes deadly rhetoric. You've got to draw the line somewhere.

Re: “Charleston voters face a $20 million decision on affordable housing in upcoming election

Why would we ever trust the local government to effectively manage this program? The County Council just had to buy a property for $33 million after signing bad leases...that the City of North Charleston had bought for $2 million 5 years ago. As far as has been reported, there weren't any extensive renovations or infrastructure work that justified the $31 million markup, just idiocy.

Meanwhile, developers want to build housing, and want to even build affordable housing. But affordable housing is dense housing in areas where the land underneath is so valuable. The problem is that local zoning won't allow builders to erect affordable housing.

What would ever allow the city to spend $20 million and meaningfully address the issue?-- an exemption from the rules for their projects.

Why not just change the rules that exist for current developers and let them build affordable units without putting taxpayers on the hook for the poor management of inept officials.

Re: “Gov. candidate Catherine Templeton calls Steve Bannon "the voice of the rest of us" ahead of his Citadel speaking gig

Obviously, you are as racist as Bannon, & would do nothing but promote divisiveness in our state & our country. Would not vote for you if you were the last person on earth!

Re: “Student in Freddie Gray Halloween costume faces heat from CofC's Black Student Union

What the f*ck is wrong with you dumbsh*t kids? Information is at your literal fingertips all day long to clue yourself in. Freddie Gray was killed, even if you look at it as a careless accident, after an arrest for nothing. He has a family. He has friends. He is a symbol of injustice and open wounds in our society.

But I guess the need to be "edgy" and "stick it to the libs and whiny minorities" is overwhelming to some of our most oppressed Americans, my fellow white males who come from money. Go play in traffic while jamming out to Rush Limbaugh.

Re: “The Agenda: S.C. corruption law lacks teeth; Ex-N. Chs. officer settles suit over Confederate flag underwear

Was the police officer wrongfully terminated because he was peeing into his Confederate underwear? Then he indeed should not have been terminated, he should have been praised for soiling that Nazi-like Confederate flag.

One more reason not to vote for Templeton in the primary. Vote for anyone else.

Dale, why have a White Student Union, when whites are a majority in that college? They don't need such a union.

Well, you better look out for complete crying and name bashing from the Black Student Union? How do the folks in the White Student Union feel about this? Oh, I forgot, that would be racist to have a separate white one. Never mind.

Just a minor correction: DHEC is not a cabinet agency. It is a state agency, but not part of the Governors Cabinet.

Re: “Gov. candidate Catherine Templeton calls Steve Bannon "the voice of the rest of us" ahead of his Citadel speaking gig

"hypocritical for liberals to scream about inclusion while only including people who agree with them."

Err....uh....No. We include people we disagree with almost every issue except those that support despicable issue. The "issue" here is Bannon is a White supremacist and Nationalist that wants to squelch free speech by making it illegal, et al, ad nauseum. Sorry, but I will NEVER "include" Steve Bannon and ANYONE who supports his white, racist and bigoted agenda as a viable human policy. All he stands for is despicable, ergo, all you stand for is despicable. There's a special place.....

Re: “Call for immediate discussion on Charleston City Council member's residency violation fails

Yep, wait until after the election to discuss matters that pertain to eligibility to run for a seat. Typical sandbagging by some small-town political buddies. Business as usual.
