This was one of the smallest groups out there.” Potok said the members received a lot of attention because they frequently handed out leaflets. He said he would be surprised if there were 40 members spread out among chapters in Potosi, Hayden, Idaho and Pennsylvania. Ancona had been in a dispute with other Klan leaders, Potok said, who accused Ancona of being secretly Jewish and Malissa Ancona of being a Wiccan. Both were untrue, Potok believes, but the accusations are typical of the Klan world today, which consists of 29 different named organizations, “each one claiming to be the one true Klan and denigrating the others.” ~ Hanif / حنيف ‏@hanifleylabi The men in white are the surviving members of the original San Fransisco Gay Men’s choir.

I did check. This refusal to use these misleading, inflammatory terms is a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, tthis document mention the KKK and the “Nazi Party.” These two groups have as much respect, and influence, as bad guy professional wrestlers. It is important to stay focused on the important issues. These usually boil down to economics.

Disco Demolition

Reddit has a lovely comment. “I doubt anyone has any real evidence whether he said it or not. Probably not worth taking seriously. If someone has a good point to make, they can make it without quoting historical figures.” ~ When You Punch A Nazi In The Face, You Punch Me In The Face ~ Disco Demolition Night: Scenes from the Night Disco Died (or Did It?) at Chicago’s Comiskey Park, 1979 ~ Attack on Alt-Right Leader Has Internet Asking: Is It O.K. to Punch a Nazi? ~ @gawkenn ~ ‏@itspurpl It’s satire piece i hear. ‏@kerryreid With Brooks, I never know. He is a walking self-parody. ~ White Nationalist Richard Spencer Punched In The Face On Camera ~ Fuck Racism, Nazi’s get punched. I thought the picture of Richard Spencer getting punched would make a good hardcore band style shirt. ~ ZAAOMM one star reviews ~ Trump’s Muslim Immigration Executive Order: If We Bombed You, We Ban You ~ war stories ~ The State Department’s entire senior management team just resigned ~ Coalition of Anti-Racist Whites (CARW) ~ 5 Things Everyone Gets Wrong About Being Offended ~ I used to work in a high school, and I attended a lot of events, because high schools love events the way celebrities love using rehab as a form of apology. At one of these events (I don’t remember what it was — a wet T-shirt contest? I dunno; I was drunk), I was seated in front of two young women who were loudly talking about how racist this particular event was, until an elderly black woman seated behind them leaned forward and, with that infinite dignity and majesty that some old people just have, said, “Excuse me, I’m sorry, could you please shut the fuck up?” Maybe the women were right about the event, but the elderly woman behind them didn’t give a shit because she was there to see the kids, not listen to pompous 20-somethings show off the stuff they learned at their Coalition of Anti-Racist Whites meeting. ~ insult generator ~ How Author Timothy Tyson Found the Woman at the Center of the Emmett Till Case ~ Seriously.TV @OfficialSrslyTV ~ Dylan Marron is a Condescending Douchebag ~ Shutting Down BS about Autism 2 ~ When they go low, we go high’ ~ Trump will lose, but conservatism will win (unless we stop it) ~ Curmudgeons Day ~ A Hunting Story ~ @dylanmarron Being called out publicly when you think you’re “woke” sucks. But it’s helpful, too. Here’s my experience: ~ You are blocked from following @dylanmarron and viewing @dylanmarron’s Tweets. Learn more ~ I saw something about your twitter account. I decided to go look at it. I had never contacted you in any way. When I got to your account, I was blocked. This is a shitty way to treat people. Luther Mckinnon @chamblee54 ~ @anidiotsopinion alternative facts is the new check your privilege ~ “that statement is no longer operative.” ~ I googled “blood orange hiv” and the first result is from the Washington Post… a corporate media giant that has peddled a few whoppers lately. While I strongly believe this is a hoax, it is a bit discouraging the see the WAPO reporting on it. ~ Actually, that is about as likely as the cherry tree story. ~ At least publicly, Schumer has no worries about his party’s dwindling fortunes among working-class white voters. “For every blue-collar Democrat we lose in western Pennsylvania, we will pick up two moderate Republicans in the suburbs in Philadelphia, and you can repeat that in Ohio and Illinois and Wisconsin.” This is up there with “we will be greeted as liberators.” ~ The state does not have a monopoly on logical fallacies. Breaking windows and healthcare theft are apples and oranges. Drone warfare is a better example of of state sanctioned violence. ~ I would also say that healthcare theft that eventually kills people actually is violence, even if the visual effects are delayed. ~ think you are getting into extra curricular semantics. Yes, health care monkey business does hurt people. But, violence is normally understood to be “behavior involving physical force.” (thank you google) Denial of health care does not qualify. ~ We understand violence differently, Luther. Also from google (interesting that sites that cover violence in this manner that pop up first in search results are from Canada, the UK, Australia): ~ If we are going to use an “expanded” definition of violence, does the government still have a monopoly? Certainly verbal violence is not illegal… if it were, most of us would be in prison. ~ That’s an interesting point ~ @RISKshow as a southerner, i totally understand lady saying “war of northern aggression” & still having friends of color ~ @RISKshow We’d imagine @WhatsRaySaying has heard plenty of that stuff too. ~ @SenSanders you made a big mistake by trying to divide us by race you helped a far worse actor get elected ~ All The Goodness Once A Week Don’t leave me! Sign up to get Blazing Center goodness delivered straight to your inbox once a week. It’s like a free pizza every week. ~ Does anyone else think it is ridiculous & pretentious to refer to a former SOS as “Secretary Clinton”? ~ @TheKevinAllison The thing about comparing Trump to Hitler. He’s not like the scheming, rousing zealot of ’33. He’s more like the batshit raving loon of ’45. ~ This article has a popup ad that will not go away. ~ @conor64 Civil libertarians: overlooking the hypocrisy of partisans because otherwise no one would ever agree with us. ~ @HLMenckenBot One of the strangest delusions of the Western mind is to the effect that a philosophy of profound wisdom is on tap in the East. ~ ‏@SlavojTweezek If you think you have understood me I have not made myself clear. ~ WAPO cannot be trusted. WAPO heard that some bad code was on a laptop at a power plant, and reported that Russia hacked the electric grid. WAPO found an Arkansas newspaper that praised Trump, and reported that the KKK endorsed Trump. ~ Are people fucked up because they do drugs, or do they do drugs because they are fucked up people? ~ resist anagrams as sister ~ i have issue with DJT bc he is a flaming asshole OTOH no DJT followers called me racist, unlike HRC people ~ People I follow on twitter.

Perhaps I should reduce my tone of teutonic menace. ~ ‏@realDonaldTrump The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers… of jobs and companies lost. If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting. ~ i just got a phone call from a friend he wanted to test the blue tooth car connection for his phone then he got home, the call was disconnected, and he has not been able to make the device work now it works ~ @blakebutler People wonder how christians could support trump but in truth the church has been preparing them with inverted logic for forever ~ I used to work with a machine. The name was TDS. No one knew what that stood for. We called it the tedious. ~ @BettyBowers Steve Bannon, odious, white supremacist peddler of fiction and other propaganda, tells media to shut up. Media responds: “You first.” ~ the demoze did not “go high” in this election ~ What is the answer? Maybe you should post fewer political items, but with more wit and compassion. Speaking to the larger FB “community” I see quite a few things we could eliminate. 1- Quit name calling. You can begin with racist. We need to be united now, not divided by name calling. 2- No more two wrongs make a right memes. Yes, most people use one set of standards for themselves, and another for others. You probably do it yourself. A bit of humility is in order. 3- Don’t be distracted by red herrings. There might be more, but that is a start. ~ Nothing came up for that search, which is a little weird. Maybe check what you searched for and try again. ~ @ggreenwald Yes, exactly. It’s important to distinguish between Trump’s unique evils & where he’s just extending old US policy ~ Please do not disparage other users on this sub. We are all here to learn. ~ fatalities anagrams: fat lie I sat I a false tit ~ ‏@realDonaldTrump The joint statement of former presidential candidates John McCain & Lindsey Graham is wrong – they are sadly weak on immigration. The two… …Senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III. ~ pictures are from “The Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”. ~ selah

Not all comments are posted. Chances of a comment being posted are increased if the comment is polite, accurate, grammatical, and substantive or newsworthy. The Sun does not accept comments referring to individuals by only their first names or by nicknames and in the case of most public officials requires, on first reference, a title, such as President Obama or Secretary Clinton. Second references to individuals and public officials require in most cases an honorific, such as Mr. Obama or Mrs. Clinton.

In the airport, he got into a conversation with a North Vietnamese colonel named Tu who spoke some English and, as soldiers do, they began to talk shop.

To say that this one newspaper represents the KKK is a lie. 2- What I heard before the election is “the KKK endorses Donald Trump” This is not the same thing as saying a KKK newspaper endorses DJT. 3- It is fascinating how the population accepted, without question, the notion that the KKK endorsed DJT. Nothing negative you said about DJT was too far fetched. This hurt the Democrats credibility. People do not like to be lied to. ~ Additionally, Ancona believes Murray’s fundraising effort is a scam, because technically, members of the Klan cannot speak with the media, let alone solicit their help with raising donations. All members sign an agreement that forbids conversations with the press. Only highly vetted officials interact with reporters, and even then, interviews are rare.” ~ @jswilliams1962 When you see #DickVanDyke trending you figure he either died or Trump nominated him for Secretary of State ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
