I guess you're not getting it. Most of the twitter people are QUOTING word by word a popular hip hop song at the moment. They aren't being
What I get right off the top is that someone started a thread to talk about the Obama Supporters and their statements to raise hell if their boy loses
the race in a few weeks. SOME..Folks...have made a determined effort to turn the thread from THAT topic and make it all about how bad the Republicans
are. As usual..and it's becoming so predictable it's funny to watch. One need not even guess what names will appear to do the derailing. It's like
clockwork, almost everytime. The thread is no exception...and one of the more blatant for example.
I get that part crystal clear.
I wouldn't mention anything...but that just a few days ago, doing the very same thing some..folks..have done here, I got slammed..and you know, I
deserved it too. It really IS getting to be far far beyond simply rude to drop in and dump all over everyone's topics who hold a different political
No, I didn't miss it.. And once again, the black panthers consists of like 10 people. They have no power, no following, and are not worth giving
attention to. But of course the media loved them, and hyped it up because they love any opportunity to show scary mad black people to create racial
division and fear monger. As you can see by many posts in this thread, it has worked.
You've absolutely got to be kidding me.
Republicans, in THIS very thread among others every day are castigated and all but called inhuman over the idiocy and the very bright ignorance of a
few. A couple dozen is the most I've seen in this cycle for the most creative stretches to include names just for score. A couple dozen...out of
roughly 50 PERCENT of the voting public.
Is it fair to paint them all by the stupidity of a few? Hmmm.. Probably not... It's probably a case of the few being held up to represent a majority
that ABSOLUTELY DO NOT say this represents them at all
You know...making that relevance argument to say the few shouldn't matter as bad behavior is STILL vile, bad behavior in their case....and they
threatened 100% RACIALLY based civil unrest....never gets very far and it shouldn't. To hear someone on the left say the NBPP is small, irrelevant
and meaningless is one I'll record for future reference. I doubt we EVER hear anyone say such a thing when the Panther's say or do something the
I sure didn't see ANYONE saying they were irrelevant and meaningless when they led the charge in Florida, eh?
Sorry... If I am stuck with hearing about idiots like Akin and racist scum like the Aryans and Christian Identity...then the left gets to wear the
stone of the New Black Panther Party and hateful trolls like them. Ain't politics fun?
Left leaning type riots? All the riots you just named had nothing to do with politics, it had to do with police brutality that people
were protesting, which transformed into a riot.
Uh-Oh.. Don't look now...but the demands of the King Riots were change in the POLITICAL LEADERSHIP of the Los Angeles Police Department. Same with
the Miami-Dade Metro Police when that lit off several years ago. Symptoms and Causes.... Two radically different things. The cops are the symptoms of
the political leadership both ordering them trained how they are trained AND ordering them to DO much of what we blame them for doing.
To say the riots weren't political is looking at the events with blinders and a VERY narrow focus, IMO.
Right wing extremists commit the highest incidents of domestic terrorism in the USA, which is exactly what an armed uprising would be.
I'm exceptionally careful about who I outright call a Liar. However much I think it fits. There is always the chance of misinformation...my OWN
included. It happens occasionally.
So, I'll ask for links to back what I believe is patently false information. I could be wrong...but that
statement needs backup or it's pure opinion and wild opinion at that. Oft repeated and quoted by bloggers all over....but still 100% pure personal
opinion without verifiable data to back it up.
I don't believe that data exists. I'd be fascinated to be proven wrong. Of the times I've responded to that very claim, I've yet to have a single
person back it with more than more text from a keyboard...and no facts in sight.
