Yeah, the KKK was well underway to hold a Victory Parade in Trump's honor but the good people of NC protested it so I think it was canceled or postponed.

In any case, not surprised the GOP is full of partisan hacks.

Every political party is full of partisans, the act of being part of one party is itself partisan.

I have no doubt the opposing Party would do the same if the situation were reversed. For now the incumbents are not yet in office, so it is, what it is. Just more partisan garbage littering the landscape being tossed by both sides.

Partisan HACKS. Which means they put party above all else.

Nope. Just moved to a different town, actually.

In any case, not surprised left-wingers are jerking each other off over the right-wingers getting caught doing something wrong.

Well, none of us here can pretend we know all about NC's politics but Republicans clearly are famous for being partisan hacks while the Democrats are famous for being weak push overs so I seriously doubt they would have done the same. Or we can look back to recent history to see if the Dems have done the same and see what we find.

Oh so the parade is still a Go, eh? Interesting.

If you're talking about circle jerks then look no further because conservatives. Also see: echo chamber.

Statement still stands. If anything, the Dems stand by each other no matter what. The GOP always seems to turn on their own as soon as a little media pressure is applied. The hacks are everywhere, it's not exclusive to one party.

That both Parties are full of people with bad intentions is pretty easy to see once a person takes off the partisan glasses.

Obama will most certainly be and already is taking as much action as he can before he leaves for example. It's always been that way and no Party is innocent of it.

If your honest with yourself, they do it because it's legal and they are still in the office. Their term is not yet up.

The parade already happened.

The echo chamber comment is rich, considering the comments in this thread with the most stars all belong to left-wingers, who just happen to be agreeing with each other and echoing the same sentiment.

So no, I need look no further than left-wingers. Left or right, you all do the same silly #, just about different issues.

Yea but that's different because Obama isn't a republican. Duh.

Thanks for the link and the story -- new one for me. I googled for other news reports on it, and it sure looks like rabid partisanship in a game of tit-for-tat. Cooper is threatening to sue them once he takes office

I think the time is ripe for the rise of other parties at the local level. If they had to form coalitions with other groups, neither side could get away with this kind of thing.

They are having a lot of protestors arrested. Including one reporter. Whats happening right now is disgusting no matter which side it is happening on.

They protested something they thought was KKK, but wasn't. Fail

Don't mistake me for a Republican or Democrat. I've had my fill of both.

Oh I wasn't. Just filling in the inevitable democrat response ahead of time.

That's what is so damn ironic about all of this: even on ATS, folks see all kinds of wrong with "the other side" but when it's pointed out that their "side" is doing something similar or identical, they just don't see it. The mental flexibility is simply amazing to behold.

The KKK is still quite alive and active


The KKK in the south is priminarly a Democratic institution






No, it's a white supremacy institution. I would guess mostly republican, since southern states are republican.

I can't argue with that, but I admit it took a trip down both the Democratic and Republican Parties roads to learn. With age and experience comes a realization the politicians are bestest buddies behind the scenes, when they are not putting on their kabuki show.

As long as we are at each others throats and compromise is not the order of the day, we loose and those with bad intentions win.
