Look folks, I get. We disagree but instead of coming with arguments to justify the behaviour of some people who are demonstrating racism in public you instead attack the person who fronts with an opinion.

Keeping doing it and you are all going to be complaining on some other forum on how unfair I am, how you have done nothing wrong, how your free speech is being censored, etc.

I have read and heard all. So just all of you get back on the FUG or get out. Trolling and attacking the person is absolutely against the FUG.

Hmm odd, I'd have thought that justifying violence against youths would have been against the FUG as well.

Quite a clear-out. That must about be the end of the right wing here.

 

Maybe this link adds a little perspective to what went down.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch ...

 

See my last post "Trump’s corruption keeps getting more obvious" on the previous page.

 

 

The Washington Post - Giuliani walks back startling claims on talk about Trump’s Moscow tower plan

 

January 21 at 7:21 PM

 

Rudolph W. Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, attempted Monday to clean up comments he made over the weekend asserting that discussions about a potential Trump Tower in Moscow stretched as late as November 2016.

 


“My recent statements about discussions during the 2016 campaign between Michael Cohen and then-candidate Donald Trump about a potential Trump Moscow ‘project’ were hypothetical and not based on conversations I had with the President,” Giuliani said Monday.

 

“My comments did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any such discussions."

 

He added: “The point is that the proposal was in the earliest stage and did not advance beyond a free non-binding letter of intent.” ...

 

 

Good grief ...  undecided

For anyone saying these boys were not being provocative. I am tired of right-wingers trying to find excuses for racism, bigotry and hate.

The students are from the deep-south, Kentucky.

I've seen this racist jeering before first hand in Alabama. They are doing the "ape dance."

It's part of a wide spectrum of dehumanizing insults. Just about every immigrant group has been the brunt of these types of taunts for centuries.

It's been a feature of many racist clashes in the South, when white supremacist are trying to provoke an attack.

I've seen Native Americans also do the same peace dance, putting themselves in harm's way, to keep white supremacist from attacking outnumbered groups.

For good measure it appears the students also mocked the Maori haka, just to be more offensive.

Why is it white supremacists are always trying to portray themselves as victims?

Sidenote 1: The "ape dance" is also used by Christian fundamentalist to mock evolution or Darwinism. Not racist, just stupid.

Sidenote 2: most white supremacists prefer mob attacks, since they are cowards. The exception, and much feared, was the skin-head, who were self-destructive.

Sidenote 3: NEVER call an African American a monkey.

Apparently there is something fishy about the account that started all the fuss.

CNN - Pence's shocking use of Martin Luther King's words

 

21 Jan 2019

 


(CNN) On the weekend of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, Vice President Mike Pence shockingly invoked a line from the civil rights leader's famous "I Have a Dream" speech to build support for President Donald Trump's proposed deal on the border wall.

 

Asking legislators to agree to Trump's proposal of spending $5.7 billion on a border wall along with a temporary extension of the DACA program (that Trump dismantled), Pence said, quoting King, on CBS' "Face the Nation," "Now is the time to make real the promises for democracy."

 

He compared King's belief in using the legislative process to solve social problems to what the President is trying to do. ...

 

The comments made by Pence - who works at the top of an administration that promotes policies that directly contradict King's message - fly directly in the face of Martin Luther King's legacy. ...

I heard on the news tonight, also about Martin Luther King, that Huckabee Sanders was complimentary about MLK giving his life for his cause. He didn't give his life, it was taken.

I missed it. Imo a couple of posters sadly failed to note the initials BDFL before reply and whatever else. That is all.

It means, at the end of the day, every has to play by the rules I set out here. In case of doubt, talkback won't help as I am the one who utilmately decides who stays and who goes.

 

And I have to say, I am getting tired of racism and bigotry so I did a small cull yesterday.
