    Still no news of scary Democrat Confederate Statues killing innocent citizens. There is intel that these Democrat Confederate Statues will use the dark of the eclipse to set upon unsuspecting citizens. Continue to be afraid. The appropriate response to these killer statues is to riot and burn buildings and cars. Show them you are stand in defiance.

    Confederate statues don't kill people.  People who defend Confederate statues kill people.   Dylann Roof killed nine people to honor the Confederate flag. James Fields killed one person and injured 19 more to honor Confederate statues. How many more will die before even PP realizes that Slavery was not cool?
    And that Trump stinks.

  3. Powerful Pear says:

    Oh, I get it now. The rioting and mayhem was about slavery and not about Democrat Confederate statues. But wait, the slavery issue was solved with over 600,000 killed, and slavery was abolished, so why the rioting? Oh yes, slavery is not cool. So after 154 years we have to remind ourselves that slavery was not cool so rioting and mayhem is SOP.

    In the 60's there were plenty of riots about the Vietnam war. Shouldn't we be rioting today because the Vietnam war wasn't cool? There were riots for the 1968 Democratic Convention, definitely not cool. Should we riot at every political convention.

    Of course, MJ's peeps, the anarchist, really don't care about slavery, they just want a chance to earn spending money and get to tear shit up for the fun of it, while serving the purpose of the extremist political left.

      Uhh, PP, the rioting and murdering is from your peeps.  The only reason anyone honors the Confederacy is that it fought for slavery.   James Fields killed to honor slavery, and people who killed to save slavery.  Dylann Roof is your peep, not ours.  He killed to save the Confederate flag, the flag of slavery.

      One of your statues, Nathan Bedford Forest, while alive, said, "If we are not fighting to defend slavery, then why are we fighting?"

       The Confederacy stood for slavery and rape.  Nothing else.

      So why do you honor the murderers who kill in its memory today?  Why do you honor James Fields?  Why do you honor Dylann Roof?

      You've got NOTHIN,' Pear.

      Never have had, never will have.

      All we get from you is transparent dis-ingenuousness, obfuscation and diversion.

      The simple truth is that you and your reactionary ilk routinely support and vote consistently for very, very bad people who act solely on the behalf of themselves and those who look, think, believe, worship and behave exactly as they do.

      What they do, and what you do in your knee-jerk support of them, is positively un-American. And no amount of disingenuous obfuscation can hide or obscure that.

    Pear, your white slip is showing this morning. 

    • Powerful Pear says:

      That's a pretty lame response. Surely you can do better.

      • Voyageur says:

        How do you get lamer than honoring Dylann Roof and James Fields?  

        • Powerful Pear says:

          What makes you think I do?

        • Powerful Pear says:

          Easy answer, I don't. No honor to law breakers.

            As usual, PP (Passionate Prune) ignores his fellow travelers on the far right; like Oathkeepers, Minutemen, Jason Kessler, Aryan Brotherhood, the Bundy clan, and so on. Groups like these appear unable to do anything wrong in Prune's eyes. 

            • Duke Cox says:

              He is just like everyone else in the alt-right. He says whatever is expedient to the moment. Nothing really matters to him except "winning". Losers are like that. That is why he adores and honors  Trump…an undeniable law breaker.

              In the circles inhabited by PP, the truth is an orphaned child.

              No honor to law breakers. 

              You honor law breakers every day, peepee.. It is only a matter of which laws. Apparently, if it is rich, old, white guys breaking the law, they get a pass. If it is Neo-nazis it's because someone else started it, and they get a pass. Those guys wearing swastikas in Charlottesville were just protesting Russian adoption laws, or something like that. They get a pass…Amirite?

    The fact that I make fun of people who claim righteous indignation when in fact it is nothing but political warfare from the left who seek to succeed by dividing Americans. Sorry but this is a contrived propaganda by the left. The slavery we should all be worried about is economic slavery by the government.

    • Diogenesdemar says:

      It's odd that you never make fun of those righteously indignant folks who by virtue of their whiteness are so resentful of their inferiors having equal opportunities.  It's odd the you never make fun of those righteously indignant folks whose Sunday superstitions are claimed justification for every kind of nonsensical prohibition . . . 

      . . . I guess your righteous indignation is at least as righteously selective and narrow-minded righty political warfare as your choice in racial superiority (yours), and your preference of imaginary playmates (yours)?

    Bernie: Medicare for All

    Bennet: Status Quo is Fine With Me – he yelled!

    What passion!

    What conviction!

    What passion?

    What conviction?

    Because, why the hell not???
