Mean spirits 'teabillies' bring shame to the South

Killian's message
Killian's message

I can count only two times I've ever been embarrassed to be Southern or Tennessean.

The first was when I was a child and George Wallace was grandstanding on television with a crowd of toothless and drawling supporters around him. I thought: Oh, no, now the whole country will think none of us have teeth.

The second was when I read the newspaper Wednesday morning and learned that U.S. Attorney Bill Killian was jeered by a roomful of people who have forgotten that their ancestors once were immigrants here looking for freedom to exercise their own religion -- one that wasn't so welcome in England or Germany or Ireland or any number of the many countries our great- and great-great- and great-great-great- grandparents came from.

Times Free Press reporter Ben Benton watched the circus Tuesday evening and said some 350 people were in the room and many were shouting things at Killian, the man who defends their rights to live safely all over East Tennessee day in and day out.

They called him "traitor" and "serpent" because he dared to try to bring understanding -- an understanding that propagating hate is no different from bullying in schools. An understanding that they can say they don't like Muslims, but they can't threaten one, or vandalize their church, or burn their church down -- as happened some years ago.

Benton said another 80 people were in the lobby listening on loudspeakers, and still another 200 or more were outside carrying protest signs.

Of course, Killian wasn't their primary target -- no pun intended -- from the mob now labeled "teabillies."

What really has these folks whipped up is a community of Muslims who have built the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.

This traditionally white, conservative and Christian community has seen a significant influx of immigrants in recent years as the foreign-born population around Nashville has jumped from 58,539 to 107,184 -- an 83.1 percent rise. It is the fourth-largest percentage increase in the United States from 2000 to 2008, according to a study by the Washington-based Brookings Institution.

The Muslim increase was fueled largely by the arrival of refugees from Somalia and Kurds from Iraq, who were resettled there by the federal government upon fleeing the repression of Saddam Hussein after the first Gulf War.

So Middle Tennessee now has the largest population of Iraqi Kurds in the United States, according to the Washington Post. A significant number of foreign-born Muslims have also moved to the area to study at Vanderbilt University or Middle Tennessee State University.

With the 2001 terrorist attacks, Middle Tennesseans became fearful. Never mind that the only violence in Middle Tennessee were racial slurs painted by Tennesseans onto mosque walls. One mosque was burned down.

Fast-forward a few years past the meteoric rise in rural Middle Tennessee of the tea party, which doesn't care for anything that isn't free, isn't white and doesn't complain. Add in the Boston Marathon bombings and the holier-than-thou religious right that believes only Christians are God's children.

The sum of all those things is embarrassing bullying and ignorant hatred.

Yes, ignorant hatred.

Coffee County Commissioner Barry West stirred the pot a few days earlier by posting a photo on his Facebook page showing a man with a squinted eye aiming a shotgun, under the phrase, "How to wink at a Muslim."

This is a leader, who like many of our congressmen of late, is busier spreading bigotry and dissension than real leadership.

West has since apologized, but the crowd jeering Bill Killian -- who was just trying to bring understanding -- sported signs saying things such as "In America, you are free to practice your religion, and I am free to insult it."

That's wonderfully true. But the key is knowing where insulting stops and threatening begins. The key is thinking -- not just blustering. The key is looking for peace, not just spreading discontent.

When I went to Sunday school in a little, white, back-country Southern Baptist church, we sang a song: "Red and yellow, black and white. They are precious in His sight. ..."

So today, I want each of the nearly 600 people who showed up in Manchester, Tenn., Tuesday night to turn off Fox News and turn off the reality shows that you think you should emulate and just ask yourselves one question.

It's a question that you folks probably hear at least once a week from your own Sunday school teacher.

What would Jesus do?

Or do you think He's a traitor, too?

Much of what Mr Killian said I agree with, especially in isolation, but do you or he care about Christians persecuted in Muslim countries? You may rightly focus on Tennessee, but do you care at all, or know? In 12 years there've been 50+ federal persecutions for "hate crimes" against Muslims; and it may be that all or most of the defendants were guilty; and, yes, this is at least somewhat serious, though stories of students suspended for using the word "gun" or chewing a piece of bread into a gunlike shape make us suspicious of U.S. Justice. Did the 50+ include any murders?

Worldwide, Muslims murder thousands (>100,000?) of Christians a year. Does this bother you at all? Even in your editorial (and thank you for your courage in signing your name to it), a sentence or two noting such facts might've provided balance and given your remarks more, not less, force; dittos for Mr Killian's remarks. 9-11 and Benghazi show us that quite a few Muslims are not Mother Theresa. Comparing Christendom with Muslim countries suggests that Jesus Christ makes for better government than Mohammed. (Older Pakistanis would tell my dad: The further we get from British influence the more corrupt we get.)

Of course we Christians must love Muslims, and many of the behaviors Mr Killian opposed we should oppose. Is he against them when Muslims commit them, however rarely this comes within his day job? If he became the new ambassador to Libya, or were called to help set up the new Libyan justice department, would he find himself giving such speeches to Muslims? (Unlike Tennessee, would he fear for his life?) How many US Muslims denounce Saudi Arabia, which outlaws church buildings, as a bigoted government?

We can well love Muslims by pointing out that their religion leads to bad government--"by their fruits ye shall know them"--and by pointing out that Jesus said of Himself, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father except by Me" (John 14:6)--and by pointing out that Jesus excels Mohammed in His birth (to a virgin), his life (miracles), his death (for our sins--what love!), his resurrection (what power!), his clear fulfillment of multiple prophecies, his positive influence on government (He's rather libertarian)--and urging them to forsake Mohammed and become followers of Jesus.

The actions of a few should not condemn the actions of the many. According to people that attended, there were very few people there that forced this fiasco. And the people that went to listen to Mr. Killiam tried to stop them. There is no excuse for what those few did - it is not just wrong, but shameful. One question - what about the OWSbillies that not just shouted down any opposition but destroyed property among other heinous acts? Are you going to denounce them - and for them, it wasn't just a few, but the majority in that case. Would you condemn them for their outrageous statements about Jews - or are Muslims the only protected hate crime religion.

inquiringmind said...

It is oxymoronic to describe the behavior of the crowd at the meeting as "Christian." They diminish us as civilized humans.

It is reminiscent of the Southern racism we saw in the 1950's and 1960's. AndrewLohr should consider how many African Americans white southerners killed because of the color of their skin before he casts stones at Muslims, or Jews. What kind of "good" government in America allowed that behavior to persist for over a century?

In fact, he might want to go back to Pam Sohn's little church and read a little of Paul's reflections on his own hand in personal violence against God.

i'm betting that 99% of the screamers were born-again Christians, practicing the love of God in their bigoted mindset.

Forget Jesus, Mohammed, Abraham, and guard against their fanatical followers and the world becomes a better place. There are no super Sky Daddies of any sorts. The longer such nonsense is believed, the longer wars of genocide and intolerance remain.

On a brighter note, I see where Southern Baptist membership is declining as a literal reading of the Bible becomes more ludicrous and superstitions about devils, demons, and gods, and Bigfoot are laughably backwards and detrimental to humanity.

What's shameful is having a federal attorney who is so ignorant that he threatens to jail people who say things that he doesn't like. That U.S. Attorney is supported only by hyperpartisan Know-Nothings who are instinctively attracted to totalitarian governments. Thankfully we have people who showed up to educate Killian. The famed First Amendment lawyer Floyd Abrams said of Killian "He's just wrong". As for those vicious little people who defend Killian: Shame On You.

I've never met a tea partier who wasn't filled with hate, rage and bigotry against anyone who didn't look like them or follow their script. Even the ones who remain in the closet and pretend shock at the intolerant actions of other tea partiers. If there are more tolerant tea partiers out there, they've remained silent. By remaining silent the intolerant, hate filled, bigoted tea partiers are the ones that have made a lasting, irreversible imprint on everyone's memory. Attempting to switch gears and clean up their image to a kinder, more gentler group won't fly.

The media is good at division. Division is what keeps the status quo in power. Paint with a broad brush and group all dissenters in a negative light. Those people in middle TN should be ashamed that they are so easily misled by the media they choose to believe in. But the other side is too quick to lump everyone into the Tea party. It has become a code word for the left. Kind of like when there is a fire or a police call to a trailer park and the media finds the toothless neighbor to interview. Makes for good entertainment but not always accurate

klifnotes said...

AndrewLohr said:... but do you or he care about Christians persecuted in Muslim countries?


What you left out, andy, Christians in many of those countries have been committing their own persecution and atrocities against Muslims and others for decades. Long before Muslims decided to react. Remember the movie: Hotel Rwanda was based on actual events, where Christian Hutu turned on their neighbors, and once friends, the Tutsi tribe and carried out genocide against them, based on an extreme and radical version of the Christian bible taught to them by perhaps radical western and European Christian missionaries.

Someone once said, and I'll quote: "There's no more dangerous person in the world than the missionary."

It's not the media that left a lasting negative impact of the Tea Party group. It's the group members actions over the past several years that have defined them as an intolerant and racist group.

The anti-TeaParty people are fountains of ignorance and misinformation. Hey, klifnotes, did you know that the conflicts between Hutu and Tutsi have nothing to do with religion? Neither group is Muslim.

You know what embarrasses me as a southerner? Waking up every morning and seeing some dumb guy standing in front of his house got shot. Or how about 5 blacks in Knoxville kidnapping, torturing, sexually assaulting and murdering 2 young white people. Or how about the cheating scandal in the Atlanta Public School system. Or how about South Florida in 2000 when Democrats were so stupid they couldn't figure out a butterfly ballot? Isn't it amazing how liberals are so big on free speech until someone they oppose exercises that right? Has any Tea Party member ever been accused, much less convicted of violence?

AndrewLohr said...

klifnotes, does your own chosen nickname tell us you don't do your own research? Libyan Christians have been persecuting Muslims for decades? Huh? How many Tea Party rallies or meetings have you attended? If you (and dd and im) had read my 1st post, you might have noted that I expressed agreement with some of what Mr Killian and Editor Sohn said. If you think getting rid of Christianity improves government, have you heard of Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and North Korea? He was OK in person at a libertarian meeting, but do the cartoons of the Times's cartoonist not express "hate, rage and bigotry" against those whose politics differ from his? Obviously the Rwanda genocide and US slavery/Jim Crow racism were terrible sins by people who call themselves Christians, and it's standard Christian doctrine that all Christians "fall short of the glory of God," but what in the Bible or in the conduct of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ had what part in bringing about the Rwanda genocide? Do they credit the very devout Christian William Wilberforce for ending the slave trade and slavery in the British empire, and that without civil war? Evangelicals had some part in ending slavery and Jim Crow here too (and atheists not much; nominal Christians and other theists some). Liberal bigots, repent or perish. (Conservative bigots ditto).

Hey! RexStar! Key words were and OTHERS. The Rwanda genocide was inspired by Hutu preachers taught western and European religion. No act of war, conflict or genocide is every governed by any one issue.

Maybe you should look in the mirror when referring to someone as ignorant.

If you think getting rid of Christianity improves government _________-

Andy, who said anything about getting rid of Christianity would improve government? Perhaps, placing all religions in a true and rational perspective would improve the world as a whole. As no one religion holds a monopoly when it comes to radicalism. You have your Christian radicals the same as radicals in most every other major and not so major religion.

June 6, 2013 at 12:14 p.m.
RexStar said...

Hey klifnotes! What does "improve the world as a hold" mean? And if non-theistic governments are the answer to anything, then explain why the Soviet Union or Red China killed so many millions of their own people. Because otherwise you sound like you've got no clue what you're saying.

Hey, RexStar, again who said anything about a non-theistic government? Where did you get that one from? Remember: Reading is F U N D A M E N T A L, and comprehensions is the best F R I E N D you will ever have.

Of course there are non-religious radicals. No one to my knowledge has ever said there weren't. At the moment, however the more radicals here appear to be wrapped in a flag of patriotism and carrying a cross. Sinclair Lewis was right. He saw it way back there in 1935.

daytonsdarwin said...

Religion belongs in church, temples, private homes, and private places. It does not belong in public schools, government, or public places that are supported by tax dollars.

Religious fundamentalism promotes intolerant, bigoted behavior. Taken to extremes you have Christian Reconstruction, Spanish Inquisitions, Jihad, and destruction of heretics, infidels, and freethinkers.

Belief in invisible, imaginary deities, and their earthly spokesmen who promote such life-denying genocide, slavery, and torture for "unbelievers" have throughout history practiced such barbarism.

Whether the savior's name is Jesus, Mohammed, Baal, or Ra, the True Believers insistence of their divination and that destruction of the others who think differently is justified, religious dogma bears the mark of ignorance and is anathema to progress.

Jimmy Carter in the 1980 Presedential campaign told the whopper about his 12 year old daughter stating that nuclear proliferation was the most important issue in the campaign.

Bill Clinton told the whopper that he saw on TV black churches burning when he was a child.

Now this writer states:

"I can count only two times I've ever been embarrassed to be Southern or Tennessean."

"The first was when I was a CHILD and George Wallace was grandstanding on television with a crowd of toothless and drawling supporters around him. I thought: Oh, no, now the whole country will think none of us have teeth."

Oh it is true, klif. Killian pointed only to examples of free speech in his interviews, which is why noted First Amendment lawyer and scholar Floyd Abrams said of Killian that "He's just wrong." Now just between us it's evident that Killian is quite a few IQ points short of coherence in his statements, so it's amazing that the editor of even a small-town paper would try to rally to Killian's defense. I'll go ahead and state the end result, and that is Killian is imbalanced and trending towards dissolution. Keep an eye on him for a few weeks and you'll see more comedy gold breakdowns.

We don't need Muslims to destroy America. We have the Religious Right, Creationists, Pat Roberson and the ghost of Jerry Falwell, John Hagee, and the mindless followers of faith-healers, Richard Butler's Aryans, and Fred Phelps klan of idiots to do it.

Add the war making military machine and war-mongers like McCain, Graham, Lieberman, Pete King, and the others in Congress and we won't need Muslims. We'll self-destruct.

What an absolutely shameless display of ignorance and racism. There's your TEAvangelical Taliban Party that's destroying the Republican Party I vote in on display for all to see. They are not patriots. They are not good American citizens. They were nothing more than an angry, intolerant, closed minded mob bent on destroying a public meeting.

Never Mind that the mob scene they created made Manchester look like Mississippi and Alabama during the civil right era to the entire nation.

Robert "KKK" Byrd, Bull Conner, Byron De La Beckwith and the four recent white supremacist murderers from Coffee and Franklin Counties would have been proud of them last night. The only thing missing that would have let those racists down was the failure of the mob to burn a cross in front of the building.

These people are going to hurt somebody someday, and I hope they get to share a cell with Chattanooga's worst gang members when they're convicted.

The Soviet Union and Red China weren't "non-theistic" governments. Mao and Stalin were the gods of those countries. They kicked out religion so they could play god and be worshipped as such. The same thing happened in North Korea. The absence of organized religion in those countries does not equate to "non-theism".

Hate to burst your bubble, but you have no clue what you're talking about.

Oldhickory said...

No Rex. I'm sure the TEAvangelical Taliban Party can blow their own house down all by themselves. It seems like they did a great job of that in November by losing the election for us by running around making offensive comments like "legitimate rape."

If TEAvangelicals want to go around being nasty little racists go right ahead, I just wish that they were not associated in any way with the Republican Party. To me the RINO lable fits the TEAvangelicals better than anyone else, because the Republicans I associate with are not ignorant and filled with hate.

As far as Killian and what he had to say goes, there is a little thing called class. We can listen to somebody politely and still disagree strongly with them in a public forum without being a mob.

And non-theistic North Korea has had several regimes passed down from father to son. But the non-theistic nature of those regimes didn't change. So don't worry you didn't burst my bubble. Your own bubble, yep, you burst that.

RexStar,

"Easy123, you're short a few IQ points and several thousand pounds of history books to make an analysis here, boy."

Like I said before, you're lacking the basic knowledge in what you believe you are talking about. You obviously have no clue what "theism" is, nor do you understand how the leaders of the governments you speak of were viewed. Those several thousands of pounds of history books do not support your claim. Your analysis is short-sighted and brutally ignorant, boy.

"The Soviet Union had several leaders (or "gods", as you say) besides Stalin,the non-theistic Red China had several leaders besides Mao."

Mao was the only leader of "Red" China. The Soviet Union had 4 with Stalin having the longest tenure. How does that support your point in any way?

" And non-theistic North Korea has had several regimes passed down from father to son. But the non-theistic nature of those regimes didn't change"

Again, they kicked out organized religion so they could play god and be worshipped as such. The absence of organized religion in those countries does not equate to "non-theism". Theism is simply the belief that a deity exists. In all of the regime's you mentioned, the leaders are viewed as gods.

"So don't worry you didn't burst my bubble. Your own bubble, yep, you burst that."

I don't know who's bubble you think you're bursting, but you didn't say one damn thing that proved/supported your point or disproved mine.

No Chatt. I believe the OWS folks that camped out on the Courthouse lawn were equally as unimpressive and shouldn't have been allowed to stay the 1st night.

River: Idiots? Why yes. Idiots they were and in great abundance. The point of the meeting was to educate and avoid just what you describe, killings, beatings, bombings and burnings, by people from these far right intolerant groups before they do something more stupid and end up in jail. Being ignorant doesn't make these people bad. Being too passionate in their ignorance and committing a hate crime can end up putting them in jail. But it doesn't look like the point got through.

Riverman, viewing the crowd at the hmmm, Rally i think its safe to say these people are not traveling with a full load, education or not, not. I don't think they voted for Obama, so what is your point?

Where did you come up with these statistic's? Pulling lies out of ones ass is not facts but LIES.

Did'nt see any blacks, Mexicans at the hmmm, Rally. Mob mentality is not their thing, i understand that. Muslim's don't have that fear.................

Easy123 says Mao was the only leader of Red China. Ohhhh-kay, now we know 2 things about Easy-Peasy: One, she has no idea what was happening in Red China and, Two, she has no idea what is happening in Tennessee. There's your traveling bollocks-load of ignorance in a broken-down cart right there. (I usually get big bucks for remediating others, but I'll throw in Zhou Enlai and Hua Guofeng gratis towards Easy and let her figure out where to put them.)

RexStar,

"One, she has no idea what was happening in Red China"

There was only one leader of the Chinese Soviet Republic and that was Mao Zedong. Also, I'm not a "she".

"and, Two, she has no idea what is happening in Tennessee."

You're just talking out of your ass now.

"There's your traveling bollocks-load of ignorance in a broken-down cart right there."

Are you referring to yourself or the "bollocks-load of ignorance" that you've been introducing in your last few posts?

"(I usually get big bucks for remediating others, but I'll throw in Zhou Enlai and Hua Guofeng gratis towards Easy and let her figure out where to put them.)"

Zhou Enlai was the premier UNDER Mao. And the People's Republic of China wasn't exactly the same "Red China" under Hua Guofeng/Deng Xiaoping as it was under Mao.

I can understand that a person with the IQ of frozen yogurt like yourself might choose to ignore the such details, but I don't. I'll let you figure out where you went wrong and start planning your next rebuttal accordingly.

I've yet to get paid for remediating folks like yourself on this site, although I would be a rich man if I was paid for such things.

riverman,

Congratulations for exposing your true feelings, you ignorant, racist son of a bitch.

FACT: It's just delightful to have a knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, sister-banging, ignoramus, WingNut, racist scum sucker like yourself on these forums.

Oh, and sorry if those facts confuse you.

"Democrats are the dumbest demographic in the country."

Prove it.

"That's not my opinion, that's consistently shown by polling data where people are asked questions of fact."

So you'll have no problem producing these polls, right?

"Not surprisingly, this is news only to Democrats. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20130430092047AAGOTT9"

You're obviously stupid enough to think a link from answers.yahoo.com serves as any kind of proof.

Here is the real poll that doesn't quite speak to your point as much as you'd like it to:

riverman said... Klif, waiting on your documentation of Tea Party "violence" being prosecuted and obtaining a conviction.


Jared Lee Loughner, harbored many of the same extreme beliefs as the Tea Party.

he was a devotee of Ayn Rand

To call his crime an attempted assassination is to acknowledge that it appears to have had a political and not merely a personal context. That context wasn't Islamic radicalism, Puerto Rican independence, or anarcho-syndicalism. It was the anti-government, pro-gun, xenophobic populism that flourishes in the dry and angry climate of Arizona. Extremist shouters didn't program Loughner, in some mechanistic way, to shoot Gabrielle Giffords. But the Tea Party movement did make it appreciably more likely that a disturbed person like Loughner would react, would be able to react, and would not be prevented from reacting, in the crazy way he did.

At the core of the far right's culpability is its ongoing attack on the legitimacy of U.S. government

Often the two issues are blurred together, because if government is illegitimate, rebellion is an appropriate response (hence the Colonial costumes). Conservative entertainers like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin like to titillate their audiences with hints of justified violence, including frequent reminders that they are armed and dangerous. Palin went so far as to put a target on someone who subsequently got shot.

See, Easy123, once you learn to read life will be much easier for you. The link that I posted and the link you posted both refer to Pew Research polls showing that Democrats are much less knowledgeable of the world around them than are Republicans. That's a surprise only to stupid people. Anyone who's ever mad a living polling knows that Democrats are the bottom of the barrel in knowledge. The proof is in the link that you posted but didn't read.

RexStar,

"See, Easy123, once you learn to read life will be much easier for you."

See, RexStar, once YOU learn to read, your life will probably be equally as hard, but, at least, you'll be able to read.

"The link that I posted and the link you posted both refer to Pew Research polls showing that Democrats are much less knowledgeable of the world around them than are Republicans."

The link you posted is full of lies about the same poll that show Republicans answered random questions correctly at a rate of about 5.9 questions per person (out of 12 questions). Democrats answered those same questions correctly at a rate of about 4.9 questions per person. Thus, Republicans answered one more random question correctly on average than Democrats.

Not only is the entire poll irrelevant, but all the questions were fairly insignificant. One of the questions was what the DOW was currently at. Another was the occupation of Stephen Colbert. Not exactly the most relevant questions or a test of ones knowledge.

"That's a surprise only to stupid people."

Considering the stupidity you've shown here, the patent ignorance of you and your ilk should come as a surprise to no one.

"Anyone who's ever mad a living polling knows that Democrats are the bottom of the barrel in knowledge."

And you haven't provided a lick of proof substantiating that claim. You attempted to rely on a bogus link filled with false information instead of actually looking at the poll/study data itself.

"The proof is in the link that you posted but didn't read."

There was no "proof" in either link. Your link was inventing lies based on the study that I posted. The Pew study WAS NOT linked in the link you provided. I had to look it up myself. If you compare the two, your link and the actual study/polling data, you will find a lack of congruency between them.

You would know that if you actually read the entire link and did any research on the actual study. But, per usual, you believe anything that fits your ignorant, baseless narrative. You're so gullible/biased/blind, in fact, that you'll believe things as truth that are posted on answers.yahoo.com with no further research required.

And, if you actually looked in depth to the study I posted, you would understand that the study/poll proves absolutely nothing. But, if you'd like to believe that Republicans are more intelligent or knowledgable because they know who Stephen Colbert is, what the DOW happened to be on that given day or that they can answer one (1) more question correctly than Democrats, go right ahead. Cling to whatever hope you can. But no serious, objective person would agree with you based on what you deem "proof".

Would you like to try one more time?

"Easy123, yes, the fact that on a 12-question test Republicans can get 1 more correct answer than can Democrats means that Republicans know more than Democrats."

No, it does not. It means Republicans knew one more random, irrelevant question, on average, than Democrats. I've already made the case for how the questions involved do not serve as any kind of indicator of knowledge whatsoever.

Anyone who claims that one party is "smarter" than the other based on how many in each party know what the DOW is at on that day and Stephen Colbert's occupation must have some severe inadequacies and a fragile ego.

But keep clinging to whatever you can. I know you need it.

"Easy123, in her Know-Nothing way, thinks that the fewer questions you get right, the smarter you are."

Strawman. I never made such a claim. My argument is that the study and questions prove nothing considering the irrelevant nature of the questions. Also, I'm not a her.

It's important to point out your own ignorance and fallacious, illogical arguments as proof against your claim that Republicans are smarter. You are disproving your own claim, you dumb Republican.

"So in Easy's backward world, Democrats are smarter."

Actually, I've never made such a claim. I'm simply disproving your claim. In your backward world, a twelve question test can prove the knowledge/intelligence level of an entire party of people.

Pardon me while I scoff at your idiocy and laugh at your severe lack of objectivity.

"In the real world, unknown to Easy, Republicans are smarter."

As I've stated and proved already here in the real world, you have yet to provide any substantial evidence that proves such a claim.

"Easy, you haven't refuted any argument yet."

I've, literally, done so every single time you reposted the same argument.

"You just strung together goober-phrases and tied to pretend they weren't stupid."

That's actually exactly what you have done. Strange how precise and accurate people's projections can be.

"To repeat the actual truth, Pew Research polling done over the course of several years shows that Republicans consistently answer questions of actual fact with more accuracy than do Democrats."

Provide proof of those Pew Research polling results that were compiled over the course of several years.

I'll bet you a million dollars that you can't.

"Easy's answer to this is the goober's all-purpose "NUH-Uhhhh"."

I guess you're too dense to realize that other people can actually read what I wrote and see that you're full of manure. So I'll just assume that is your "MORON" interpretation of around 2,500 words of lettered refutation. You have provided zero proof that substantiates your claim in any way. You haven't presented any "studies over the course of several years" that show "Republicans consistently answer questions of actual fact with more accuracy than do Democrats."

I'm still waiting, even though I know you won't come up with any substantial evidence that serious, objective people would accept. Your lack of evidence, proof, reason and logic does not a sound argument make. You're all bark and no bite. You've done all the talking, yet you can't back any of it up.

Again, anyone who claims that one party is "smarter" than the other based on how many in each party know what the DOW is at on that day and Stephen Colbert's occupation must have some severe inadequacies and a fragile ego.

"Easy the goober has no way of measuring evidence except to say she won't believe it."

RexStar, the goober, has no way of measuring evidence except to say that there is some and then she doesn't produce a single shred of it.

Strange how perfectly that fits.

"So Easy123 is just a Goober."

So RexStar is just an ignorant, illogical Goober that clings to her own idiocy like her favorite stuffed animal.

Well, I can provide proof. Do you have the million dollars for the bet? I have it. You probably have 27 cents, left over from your last meth buy. But pony up the million collected from your mom or bank robbery or whatever and let's have us a bet. I'll put my million with a neutral party and you do the same with the same neutral party. But you won't do it , will ya? Reality is you're just a little shrieking blowhard with no more money than brains, isn't it.

RexStar,

"Well, I can provide proof."

Bet you can't. It's been a few hours and still nothing.

"Do you have the million dollars for the bet? I have it."

How many million do you want to bet? I don't make bets with money I don't have.

"You probably have 27 cents, left over from your last meth buy."

Are you giving us a little insight into your personal life with this little allusion?

"But pony up the million collected from your mom or bank robbery or whatever and let's have us a bet."

You'd have to pony up the million collected from pimping out your wife or taking out loans at quickcashonline.com first before any type of bet could be made.

"I'll put my million with a neutral party and you do the same with the same neutral party."

When can we make this happen?

"But you won't do it , will ya?"

You won't do it, will ya?

"Reality is you're just a little shrieking blowhard with no more money than brains, isn't it."

Reality is you're just a whiney, inarticulate, idiotic, no talent, piss-ant halfwit with not a dime to your name and more brain matter in your mircophallus than your cranium, isn't it?

Hey, Easy the Goober, it was you who made the bet, remember. Now it turns out that I'm the only one who can cover the money. You really are a low toad-sucking lying little scumbucket. And a democrat, but that goes without saying for a stupid little weasel git like you.

RexStar,

"Hey, Easy the Goober, it was you who made the bet, remember."

Hey, RexStar the Dingleberry, I'm asking you when you're available to put your money where your ignorant, Republican mouth is, remember? Or can you read?

"Now it turns out that I'm the only one who can cover the money."

It actually turns out you really can't read. I'll cover us both if you want to do it that way. Kind of like a "double-down".

"You really are a low toad-sucking lying little scumbucket."

You really are a bird-brained, mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, deceitful, illiterate, sewer-dwelling, pile of water garbage.

"And a democrat, but that goes without saying for a stupid little weasel git like you."

And a republican, but that goes with saying for an oafish, dimwitted, lowlife like you.


Keep going! I'm just warming up.

RexStar said...

Easy the goofball goober grinder, define what you mean by "you'll cover us both". Cause to me that means you're too big a freaking pussy to know what you're getting into. Well, this is the way I make my money, educating dimwitted little girly men. So tell me what account your money is in, ABA routing number first and then account number. Otherwise, stop whining about your mama's favorite insults towards you.

June 7, 2013 at 12:58 a.m.
Easy123 said...

RexStar, the dunderheaded dingleberry,

"define what you mean by "you'll cover us both"."

I'll put up two million. If you win, you'll get it all. It's called double or nothing, moron.

"Cause to me that means you're too big a freaking pussy to know what you're getting into."

That's because you're an idiot. What kind of dumbass doesn't know what "double or nothing" means? You're just stalling because you're too big of a freaking pussy to actually go through with any of the trash you're talking.

Your mouth is writing checks that your punkass can't cash.

"Well, this is the way I make my money, educating dimwitted little girly men."

And this is the way I've been making my money since I was 21 years old, educating, outworking and crushing dumb sons of bitches like yourself.

"So tell me what account your money is in, ABA routing number first and then account number."

You first.

"Otherwise, stop whining about your mama's favorite insults towards you."

You're the one that's whining, bitch boy. If you want to take the bet, climb off your sister and put your money where your mouth is.

June 7, 2013 at 1:04 a.m.
RexStar said...

I don't have to send my ABA routing number and account number to you because you are "doubling down", remember. Okay, I take your bet, Easy the Goober. You are putting up all the money (remember), so I can lose nothing and only gain and you can gain nothing and only lose. That's the way you set it up. Send your ABA routing number and account number to mastersalv @ gmail.com. One more thing: no tears.

June 7, 2013 at 1:13 a.m.

I must say it's fresh to communicate with people like Easy123 here. They are so young, so ignorant, so completely clueless of the real world outside.

RexStar,

"I don't have to send my ABA routing number and account number to you because you are "doubling down", remember."

Then how am I going to send you the money if you win, moron? Damn, you're an idiot.

"Okay, I take your bet, Easy the Goober."

Is that why you still haven't posted a shred of proof?

"You are putting up all the money (remember), so I can lose nothing and only gain and you can gain nothing and only lose. That's the way you set it up."

Are you getting excited or do you usually do a play-by-play?

"Send your ABA routing number and account number to mastersalv @ gmail.com. One more thing: no tears."

In that bet, I said you first. Send your ABA routing number and account number to Oscar Mejia. One more thing: :-)

Strange how precise and accurate your psychological projections are, Oscar.

It's like you're describing yourself in vivid detail.

Easy 123 goober, I don't have to tell you where to send the money. Your bank will send the money wherever I tell it to. You didn't understand this, so you're just an ignorant little c*nt. Just more evidence you're a screwed-up cocktop. Your bet was a lie, just like you are a liar, you flaming little Democrat mouth-breathing jerkwad outhouse.

RexStar,

"Easy 123 goober, I don't have to tell you where to send the money. Your bank will send the money wherever I tell it to."

LMFAO! You've solidified your idiocy. A bank holding that much money will do no such thing without authorization.

"You didn't understand this, so you're just an ignorant little cnt."*

LMFAO! Sorry little bitch-boy, you have no clue what you're talking about.

"Just more evidence you're a screwed-up cocktop."

LMFAO! You mad, bro?

"Your bet was a lie, just like you are a liar, you flaming little Democrat mouth-breathing jerkwad outhouse."

My bet was real. You're the liar, you punkass little sh!t. LMFAO!

Some people are just too stupid for their own good. You're one of those people, Oscar.

Wait a minute, Easy. You made a bet here. Granted, you're too stupid to know what you're doing but you placed the bet and lost. So pay up, you little lying Democrat weasel. You bet both sides, remember, you freaking fake of a dumbass Democrat.

June 7, 2013 at 1:39 a.m.
Easy123 said...

RexStar a.k.a. Oscar Mejia,

"Wait a minute, Easy. You made a bet here."

And you never provided any information, Oscar.

"Granted, you're too stupid to know what you're doing but you placed the bet and lost."

Granted, you're too stupid to know what you're doing, but you've been duped into providing me with personal information about you that proves you're a liar. Not only that, you haven't provided a single shred of evidence that would allow you to "win" any bet.

"So pay up, you little lying Democrat weasel."

You lost the bet and your anonymity. And you've been proven to be a liar. You're a little kid, Oscar. Like I said before, you're too stupid for your own good.

"You bet both sides, remember, you freaking fake of a dumbass Democrat."

LMFAO! Don't cry, little guy.

RexStar said...

U.S. Attorney Killian, editorial writer Sohn, and commenter Easy123 are all good examples of people who stupidly mouth off without knowing what they are saying. Killian is an embarassment to U.S. attorneys everywhere and East Tennesseans in particular, Sohn is a whining Nazi, and Easy123 is a Know-Nothing. East Tennessee, you have made a good start at exposing these numbskulls but there is still a long way to go.

June 7, 2013 at 1:46 a.m.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Oscar Mejia from Professional and Technical High School in Kissimmee, Florida.

Don't cry, little guy. LMFAO!

I didn't know there were so many Nazis in east Tennessee until I read about anti-free-speech-Nazis like U.S. Attorney Killian, Pam Sohn, and bloggers like Easy123 in the newspapers. Can't we set up a task force to arrest these Nazis right away!

Nothing says Middle Tennessee like hijabs, mosques, halal slaughter, and Quranic calls to conquer unbelievers.

I was glad to see an openly hostile turn-out against the federal governments Muslim loving lackeys. Right now the same kind of lackeys are allowing Europe to become utterly Islamicized, with European protesters fined, incarcerated and unemployed.

May the 'Teabillies' gather arms and prosper no matter who doesn't like it.

Mr. Bill Killian, Please have your staff hit print. You'll note the hateful name-calling is directed toward those who believe in Jesus Christ and the Constitution in these comments.
We'll watch for the Justice Department's activity toward those who persecute Christians and America.

Which Christians are persecuted in a country that is around 80% Christian? Can you fools be any more delusional? You and your ilk live in a fantasy world and always want to play the martyr.

Yawn. So some people became emotional at a public meeting. It sounds like a fairly mild response compared to some of the union-backed protests that have taken place in recent years. If they had been from a Liberal Approved Group you would be praising them for their 'passion.' Ignorant hatred? Look in the mirror. Your clear contempt for anything white, conservative or Christian shows you to be as much a uninformed bigot as anyone you write about. There are two things that angered people about this meeting, both of which you either downplayed or ignored. 1. "Of course, Killian wasn't their primary target." Wrong. Killian threatened to use the force of the federal government to punish speech offensive to Muslims. 2. "Bill Killian - who was just trying to bring understanding" - so, he's from the government and he's just here to help us rubes, is that it? We need to be taught special skills to help us interact with these superior beings, is that it? In truth, this meeting came out of the blue and had no other purpose than to intimidate. The vast majority of Middle Tennesseans live in peace with their Muslim neighbors, treating them with the same courteous respect they give to everybody else. The story you won't tell is that in a country of hundreds of millions of people, crimes directed against Muslims are few and far between. There are many crimes targeting Jews each than Muslims. Yet there is nothing wrong with being wary of Islam. As recently as 2011 Muslims were seeking to get the United Natons to enact anti-blasphemy rules. Think things like this couldn't happen here? In 2009, the city of Dearborn, Michigan arrested Christians who were peacefully passing out leaflets at a Arab Festival in the city.

The Brownshirts who make up the fascist wing of the Democrat party are always pushing for more government power and less citizen actions. Luckily, they're a dumb group and have to rely on incompetent federal employees like Killian, who is a walking talking embarrassment to the justice system and to East Tennessee.

Liberals are the most hateful extremist in the world. They seek to destroy Whites period. If Whites where moving into a jewish area and displacing the jewish residents as the Muslims are doing in TN, she would not have the same opinion.

If powerful nations would put a stop to going into these coutries, propping up and supporting brutal dictator, and lighting fires all over the globe, the people won't feel a need to flee for their own safety.


On Immigration:

Why There's Been A Rise In Illegal (as well as legal) Migration Over The Last 30 or So Years:

The woman, of Mayan Indian heritage, had crossed the U.S. border seven times while pregnant, only to be caught and shipped back across the border on six of those attempts. She braved many miles, enduring blisteringly hot days and freezing nights, with no water or shelter, amid roaming gunmen. The last time she crossed, seven months pregnant, she was rescued by immigration solidarity activists who helped her to find her way to Boston.

Most of the border crossers are from Central America. Many say they would rather be home, if the possibility of decent survival hadn’t been destroyed. Mayans such as this young mother are still fleeing from the wreckage of the genocidal assault on the indigenous population of the Guatemalan highlands 30 years ago.

The main perpetrator, Gen. Efrain Rios Montt, the former dictator who ruled Guatemala during two of the bloodiest years of the country’s decades-long civil war, was convicted in a Guatemalan court of genocide and crimes against humanity, on May 10.

Then, 10 days later, the case was overturned under suspicious circumstances. It is unclear whether the trial will continue.

Rios Montt’s forces killed tens of thousands of Guatemalans, mostly Mayans, in the year 1982 alone.

As that bloody year ended, President Reagan assured the nation that the killer was “a man of great personal integrity and commitment,” who was getting a “bum rap” from human-rights organizations and who “wants to improve the quality of life for all Guatemalans and to promote social justice.” Therefore, the president continued, “My administration will do all it can to support his progressive efforts.”
