Re: “Glenn Beck

belligerent projection": Liars call their enemies liars, fascists call their enemies fascists, idiots call their enemies idiots. Belligerent Projection funny after looking and looking, I could not find this phrase anywhere in any literature; maybe I just missed it in my search. . But, after reading this ( cough, gag, whiz ) article I see you ( Mr.Crowther ) also suffer from belligerent projection.

Making reference to Mr. becks mother, brother and childs misfortunes in such a cavalier manner makes one wonder if your children were born with 6 toes or three eyeballs. Of course, genetic purging could rid your family tree of this condition.

Re: “Neo-Confederate Kirk Lyons on race, immigration and what could be his final flag case

I have many ancestors that fought in the Confederacy during "The War of Northern Aggression". I am proud of my Southern Heritage, I am also very proud of the Confederate young men and women (of both colors) that fought and died during this time. I have no doubt that they were fighting for what they thought was a just cause. Having said that I would also like to say, I was raised to respect the person, not the color. I have many friends of color (not that white isnt a color) that I think very highly of and admire. I have to laugh when I hear people putting down the Whites for owning slaves, but say nothing about the West Africans that sold these slaves, in most cases, to the Whites. There were also Black slave owners like Sherrod Bryant that owned around 20 Black slaves to work his 700 acres of land in Tennessee. Slavery has been with us for centuries and in almost every country of the world. Why people want to act like the Southern plantation owners invented it is beyond me. Also lets not forget that slaves were also owned in the North. Slavery wasnt right PERIOD, but it was an excepted practice long before there was a United States. Slavery exist today it just goes by other names in this day and age.
