Mesateacher-What neighborhood was it that was looted in the twin cites? And who lives there? Wow. It's just those people, who have lived in the midwest, probably for many years, just haven't soaked up the good old midwestern values. And a teacher to boot. Just, wow. May 26, 2011
As you state, "In January 2008, whistleblower Christopher Coates, a DOJ civil rights attorney with 40 years' experience, was effectively stripped of management and supervisory authority while attempting to enforce race-neutrality in U.S. v. New Black Panther Party et al."
Who was the POTUS when this happened?
Who was the Attorney General?
And don't you mean January 2009?
And if is January 2009, who were the POTUS, and Attorney General at that point in time?
When you stripped of management in January 2008, don't you mean December 2009?
And when you say stripped of management, do you mean instead, he was reassigned to South Carolina?
" Coates later testified under oath to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights describing the DOJ's conduct as a "travesty of justice" that fosters a "hostile atmosphere" against race-neutral enforcement of the Voting Rights Act."
When you say later, when exactly did this happen?
So, I guess, that is more than a couple of questions. But I guess you can edit the story? You know, to correct the errors? Mar 11, 2011
Really. This is what the paper has come to. Publishing racist giberish. Wow.
Perhaps, Leon, you are Catholic. The Inquisition was "needed" to purify. Maybe you are Christian. I guess you will ignore the teachings of "Christ" laid before us by those who perpetrated the Oklahoma City Bombing? Maybe Baptist? Do you believe in the teachings of Pastor Steven Anderson who prays for the death of a human? Regardless of your personal religious beliefs, there are radicals everywhere. To lump the few onerous ones in with the rest is despicable to those who love peace.
You do follow the bible and Christ's teachings then? All that stuff about -
“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else?" - Matthew 5:43-47
Oh, did you catch that? The President wasn't the only one who has said "Love thy enemies" (although for the life of me I can't find one instance where he said that exactly...) Good old Jesus Christ did.
So, do you follow Christ? Or is your Christ intolerant?Sep 24, 2010
