Newspaper publisher calls for Ku Klux Klan to resume lynchings and night rides.

His opinion must mean all right-wing media and their followers are racist, right?
If some people can post silly generalizations on here about media, liberals, Democrats, the FBI, the CIA, the courts and all of our allies, I guess I should start doing the same.
Why do you want to stoop to their level? After this one post, I hope you've made your point lol. But, don't become as crazy as them. It's not worth it.
Brandon, may I just say I enjoy your participation in the political forums and I hope you stick around.
I'm not good with sarcasm. Some people do call me a Sheldon Cooper. I don't think this is sarcasm though, is it
I am just amused by the fact that people pick sides like it's their sports team and they got to support it no matter what. Left/Right, Republican/Democrat, I'm like wow. They don't have the potential to think for themselves on any issue, they have to go with the flow to fit into the team, else they're outcasts.
Confirmation bias is well proven. Many people would rather rationalize their existing beliefs than change those beliefs according to new information.
I have often been called liberal by conservatives and conservative by liberals. In fact, I'm right of center. I just happen to be aggressive with debating people on here to the right of me.
That said, I agree with you as long as you agree with me ...
You're quite right, Brandon, I don't want to stoop to their level. But I just couldn't resist throwing out a hand grenade.
I hope people understand from the smiley face that I'm making this post tongue in cheek.
Funny. You've got one idiot who wrote one thing and all of a sudden it's the entire right wing media.
Bravo promisem. Way to shove your head in the sand.
He's just showing you how some of the right wing guys act. He also clearly pointed that out in his OP. If you failed to see that (even though it was not sarcastic), you must be blind. Bravo.
Well, if he's just reacting to his impression of some people he certainly won't find fault in people seeing him in the same light.
I find fault only in people who are so filled with hate toward "the left" that they can't understand my simple and obvious post.
I don't hate 'the left'. It's interesting that you would choose that particular response.
In retrospect, I regret the use of the word "hate" because I think it should be used sparingly. But I do think "animosity" is accurate.
I think that may be a little too negative also. Primarily because 'the left' are just people too. I harbor animosity toward ideas I see as indicative of the powers that be on the left. The desire to separate and fragment society into warring tribes is very dangerous, in my opinion.
Thanks, Brandon. I thought I was quite clear in my post and my followup comment to you that I was being sarcastic.
I'll say as well that I was responding to a lot more than just the posts of one person.
You don't understand my obvious point. More likely, you don't want to understand it.
The smiley face, the sarcasm, etc. Bravo, LTL, for reverting to form.
You have, in the past if I'm not mistaken, complained about the misleading nature of titles for an OP.
You will be judged, by the casual observer, by the title not the content.
Let's assume that what you just said is true. The both of you are stooping to each others level, very soon you're gonna find some Ostrich heads at eye level.
Brandon, I have learned from long experience that it's important to be civil whenever possible. At times, even LTL and I have been civil toward each other.
But I have also learned that it's important to stand up to people when they start attacking. Turning the other cheek only encourages more attacks.
Standing up to an attacker is not the same as stooping down to their level.
Again, that's the point of the post.
Frankly, I don't give a damn if I am judged badly by extremists who have constant hissy fits about "the left" and the evils of Hillary Clinton.
I also don't give a damn about people who are too lazy to read a post.
My conscience and my reputation among people who know me are rock solid.
I'm glad I have control of my faculties and am able to do research and make informed conclusions. There are good journalist that speak truth to power. I love hearing from Shepherd Smith, Chris Wallace and those that report the facts and ask probing questions, regardless of whom they work for. For the past several months, Judge Napolitano has really been breaking it down..
I think alliances are made based on certain principles. The problem comes from additional baggage others bring to the table.. Then it is important to speak the truth and opinions based on moral convictions, regardless of which side you are on.
It is sad that there are two clearly defined sides because issues are so much more complex..
Your point needs to be made more often. Of course, we only need one example of a right-wing newspaper calling for increased lynchings to confirm that all right-wingers are racists. That's how it works. One example is enough to draw a conclusion. One kid getting belittled because of his MAGA hat proves that all liberals are hypocrites.
RACISM Is as RACISM does:
This disgusting racist clown needs to RESIGN yesterday: How numb have his last remaining followers become not to see his ugly HATE and Unholy Intent?
Speaking of fake media, I heard the left has dumped their slobbering relationship with the latest liberal golden boy.

I hate racism, I hate racist people, I think the Civil War was over slavery. I've seen this country embrace the self evident truth that all men are created equal, and the doctrine of Martin Luther King, until now.People get fired from their jobs and shunned from society (rightfully so) for spouting...

Remember that Washington University poll about the Tea Party and anti-Tea Party that everyone was talking about? Here's the rest of the poll - the part some liberal journalists neglected to report. For example, Joan Walsh wrote a piece on Salon that stated 41% of Tea Partiers felt that blacks were...

When NBC showed a commercial spot for the Autumn premier of a new comedy series entitled "Animal Practice" it used a monkey perfoming on the rings. An obvious effort to capitalize on the on going Olympics coverage as a means of sparking interest in the new show. That...
