Hate Speech

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

I must say that this is probably the most accurate cartoon I've ever looked at. Enough so that I felt the need to register and say it.

crap amplified to ear drum damaging levels but defended as "free speech" by those that would eliminate freedoms. The sum total of the IQ of the crowd would still grade out at the idiot level.

Socialists/Liberals are such hypocrites!

Mr. Bennett puts out his hate cartoons, then many Socialists/Liberals come here and attack everyone they believe who is not a Socialist/Liberal with hate and potty speech.

Then if the opposition doesn't show up they just turn on each other and devour one another all hours of the day and night.

Hate, vulgarity, slander, name calling, all manner of potty mouth hate speech 24/7.

HA HA HA – Fabulous Clay! First class depiction of a ‘first crass croup’.

There are tons of puns – and jokes in today’s cartoon.

In NSM School, if you spell the name ‘Hitler’ incorrectly you'd get a visit from the Gestypo.

I've often wondered why that local Chattanooga crowd who openly expressed how they wanted to ship all the blacks back to Africa, all the Mexicans back to Mexico and to round up all the homeless and poor then dump'em at the stateline became so silent. They were really quite vocal with their hostility and intent of what they had planned for certain groups. Now a few from this same group who once viciously and openly expressed many of the same ignorant views as this national socialist party are pretending shock that such a group would feel comfortable and welcome in Chattanooga? Did those locals really believe only local people read local papers and opinions written in those papers, online and off?

Miller himself wrote in his book that his first son "bombed a crack house". His second son was killed by police after shooting a man in the chest after a car accident. He himself was convicted on weapons charges and spent three years in jail.

Despite all that, he still seemed to have no trouble at all getting more weapons and ammunition.

He destroyed his own family with hate, along with the lives of at least three strangers (that we know about).

What a sad, sad, sad little man.

April 15, 2014 at 10:22 a.m.

Good cartoon.

The National Socialist Movement is headquartered in Detroit. Just so you libs know.

April 15, 2014 at 10:49 a.m.

This comes with the territory of free speech. Can't have it both ways, I guess.

April 15, 2014 at 10:59 a.m.

Was Miller a member of the NSM? I thought he was in the KKK?

”The National Socialist Movement is headquartered in Detroit.”

Where conservatives (who would rather America be a country with an economically dis-empowered majority driven primarily by imperial wars and plutocrat-propagandists) waged, and won, a major battle in their war on the middle class.

Hey Rat, do you really believe your own shiznit?

Pfft. You don’t even understand what my last post meant Plainny.

Seems pretty clear to me, Rat. Are you, like Gassy, one of the more educated lefties on here? LMFAO.

As it is clear to me, Plainny; you are, like Conservative, one of the least educated (and rudest) RWNJ’s on here.


April 15, 2014 at 12:02 p.m.
PlainTruth said...

You've got some set, PAL, calling anyone rude. I'll put my education up with yours any day.

GaussianInteger said...

Why bring my name into Truth? Let your post stand on its on merits, not by trying to be condescending to another person that hasn't said crap to you in a few days. If you were looking for laughs, you got em, the majority of posters laugh at your BS on a daily basis. You're the most unoriginal poster on this thread and you have no room to insult anyone.

In other news, glad to see the clowns in Nashville used a bit of common sense yesterday voting down the Open Carry Bill.

April 15, 2014 at 12:09 p.m.

Yeah, MickeyMouse, that's the way it is. The fact is we're a "dis-empowered" majority under the thumb of the D.C. elite, which includes both parties, who have turned our country into a police state.

War on the middle class? You lefties hate the middle class. BO even stated in one of his books what he thinks of them.

Look at Chicago, for example, the middle class is shrinking to almost nothing. It's a lefty leaning/Democrat Party controlled place.

PlainTruth said...

Wow, Gassy. I was just referencing you statement of being one of the most educated posters here. No offense intended. Posters laughing at me? Glad to be of service, Dr. Gassy.

Don't know who he's referring to, but one thing for sure is he never filed for bankruptcy.

You did.

Does he have an imaginary CPA designation?

” I'll put my education up with yours any day.” Yes yes yes – and your posts clearly conceal it well.

HEY, you went with the moniker ‘PlainTruth’- and as has been said, ”being the most unoriginal poster on this thread and having have no room to insult anyone,” you need an inordinate amount of QA.


When it comes to disingenuous bombastic bloviating, you conservatives aren’t allowed to corner the market. If you catch my drift.

No, but he might be in total denial of his own bankruptcy.

MickeyMouse, aren't we all just blown away by your vocabulary.

All facts, MickyMouse.

Explain the soon to be extinction of the middle class in the Democrat Party/liberal controlled city of Chicago, Mr Wizard?

Soon the city will be full of the rich and the poor.

I love the lefties. Alpo (with little formal education), Rat (too young to have much education), and Gassy with overwhelming education. What a country.

What kind of education do you have?

You don't have the first clue what education I received.

more than you, I expect. do you have an imaginary college degree too? lmao

It started in Tennessee about 1865. They used a cross because of their Christian heritage.

You’re looking at the whole country through a pinhole 200 feet off the ground, and like so many others are caught up in minutia/ deflective propaganda. You know this!

Paraprased: ” We've got a real problem...this is a mathematical fact. Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats aren't doing it alone, republicans aren't doing it alone, an entire integrated system, banking, trade and taxation, created by both parties over a period of over two decades is stealing our entire country right now. Republicans want to burn the place to the ground and Democrats, with all due respect, who want to offer a plan that gets it through the end of their second term of their presidency, and then burn the place down!”

Both main political parties are cashing in, or put another way, taking their cut. It is nothing more than a titanic criminal enterprise. Open extortion is their game.

A number of regulars posting on this forum get it – You, Limric (re. his warnings about the TPP), the GaussianInteger, Rickaroo, and to a certain extent Fairmon. I’m sure I missed some others, but hey, I’m a ‘Rat’ after all. Most however are so bound to a certain ideologies or personalities that would say a choice between hanging…or execution is reasonable.

Others are just boors.

Idiocracy, Corporatocracy, Oligarchy – take your pick.

In the meantime, let’s all sing ‘Springtime for Hitler’. Goose step – kick turn. Whoo hoo.

Hey, isn't that the same bull$#!+ horn they use for Obamacare? The COVERAGE is maybe affordable for some, but then when you get SICK, the out of pocket and exclusions, including under the tax laws, make it more expensive than ever.

Ooh, sneaky sneaky Mickey Rat. The target of the first 1/2 of your 12:57 post didn’t catch your play on words.

Nicely done.

Who's bashing Christianity Plainny?

Limmy, I think linking the cross to the batsqueeze crazy NSM is plain wrong. Some don't, I guess.

April 15, 2014 at 2:37 p.m.
MickeyRat said...

No he didn’t Limric. Good catch by the way.

Plainny, That last post [2:37] was a perfect example of equine excretory vent gas if ever there was one.

NOTICE Tifosi’s statement: ”They USED a cross because of their Christian heritage.” Used – as in past tense.

Jesus Mother Mary & Joseph. Ohhh man!

Rat, despite your nastiness, I read quite well, thank you. You dislike my views, fine. I dislike yours and those of your ilk. I think you're views are wrong for this country. Period. Gonna be a backlash some day with you and your ilk's faux intellectualism. I fear what may get elected because of the backlash. Payback could be hell, pal.

Well for one thing, it's not supported by the Bible.

You could have saved yourself some effort by just saying, ”My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” ~ Isaac Asimov.

As long as you Also remember that ”the highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you know nothing about.” ~Wayne Dwyer

I’d ask you to ponder that last sentence – but I don’t think you understand it.

I shall however ponder the following and leave the QA’ing to others:

“In the way that skepticism is sometimes applied to issues of public concern, there is a tendency to belittle, to condescend, to ignore the fact that, deluded or not, supporters of superstition and pseudoscience are human beings with real feelings, who, like the skeptics, are trying to figure out how the world works and what our role in it might be. Their motives are in some cases consonant with science. If their culture has not given them all the tools they need to pursue this great quest, let us temper our criticism with kindness. None of us comes fully equipped.” ~Carl Sagan

PlainTruth said...

Funny, Gassy. The new facism is coming from the Left. Thought police, intrusion, etc. Plain as the wart on your schnoz.

Rat, in your lame attempts to become relevant, you talk in riddles. Maybe that plays well at your govt. job. Which is it, Rat? City, County, State, or Fed?

April 15, 2014 at 5:01 p.m.
PlainTruth said...

Limmy, you not believe in pushback? Backlash?

April 15, 2014 at 5:50 p.m.
Rickaroo said...

PT, what part of the left is giving rise to or even sanctioning the thought police or intrusion? It was Bush and a Republican administration that spawned Homeland Security, sanctioned the use of torture, and encouraged Americans to spy on and report suspicious neighbors. Sure, Obama is guilty of perpetuating the security excesses, too, and for broadening the scope of drone warfare, but most liberals are calling him out for it, not defending him or excusing him for it.

And as far as the snooping (intrusion) of NSA is concerned, it is right-wingers who are labeling Snowden a traitor while the left regards him as a hero. As with most of your liberal bashing, it doesn't make any sense at all but you just spew it out anyway and think that because it's derogatory of liberals your willfully ignorant RWNJ buds on this forum will high-five you for it.

Whatever PT, McCarthy made it public about his negative views on homosexuality. Sounds just like the modern-day GOP.

Not within the (threat) context of your sentence.

Do you know who had much the same viewpoint – and put them into action?

No Limmy, but you're dying to tell me.

No - I'm not going to tell you PlainTruth. Much to your childish delight you've hijacked the debate towards ignorances new era and want someone to do your grunt work.

Here's a subtle hint - "Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it." look up who said that and put on your thinking cap.
