Quote of the Week: August 31-September 6, 2014

According to someone, it’s just fine to advocate violence against people:

Members of these groups rarely if ever admonish the posters who advocate such violence. Why? Because they know the poster doesn’t mean it. These are not credible threats and most people with common sense realize it. These are simply expressions of anger and frustration about something these folks find distressing.

And so it is with Confederate heritage advocates who post violent comments on Facebook. The floggers try to make some big deal out of it, especially Simpson and the Texas scalawag — but really, how many times have Southern heritage advocates been in the news for perpetrating violence?

Yup … someone went there.

But that’s not all …

CC on violence

Yup … you-know-who went to the race card. I guess reviewing for The Economist wasn’t enough.

“Mr Baptist has not written an objective history of slavery; almost all the blacks in his book are victims, almost all the whites villains — this is not history; it is advocacy.”

    It pains me to go to that person’s blog and realize that we have similar tastes in architecture in design.

    I can’t imagine what she’d think of the architect born Frank Lincoln Wright if he hadn’t changed his middle name later in life.

    hmmm. . .I wonder if she’d feel the same about some of my darker visions of what should become of her and her kind when I’m on a rant? Naaaah. . .I’m not a Confederate treason worshiping white man. 😉

    “but really, how many times have Southern heritage advocates been in the news for perpetrating violence?”

    I guess kidnapping a child isn’t violence. I guess Nancy Grace isn’t news. I guess Megan Everett isn’t a Southern heritage advocate.

      Chastain’s confused, as usual. She seems to have forgotten this. Ask her whether she took Hines seriously, and about how she planned to keep an eye on him.

      Chastain always excuses racism, sexism, bigotry, and violence when it comes to Confederate heritage advocates. She doesn’t mind it at all.

      But I do enjoy living rent-free in her head. It’s always interesting to hear what she thinks I’m doing.

    Remember the Pat Hines comments?

    Connie picks and chooses what is violence and what is not on Facebook. Saying “John Doe deserves to be shot,” etc., is a common expression on Facebook. Hoping for someone’s rape is an extremely personal and inhumane insult.

      Recall that she also defended Billy Bearden’s comments about this and this. It’s okay to wish someone was raped, says the advocate of false rape accusations … ’cause he really didn’t mean it, right?

      Chastain’s just vile. Just the sort of person who supports the Virginia Flaggers, who use her services to maintain their blog.
