  • Remember those racist messages at the US Air Force Academy?

    They found out who was responsible for them, and it was one of the supposed "victims."

    Why on earth would someone do something like that?

    I know the article says he did so to try to divert attention away from other things he was apparently in trouble for, but that's no excuse. It makes it harder on those who have legitimate complaints...

      Sad and pathetic. Glad he got booted out for this.

      Reprehensible as it was, gassing was a conventional and accepted method for execution at the time. It is a stretch to equivocate the two.

          “There’s a great rule: All initial reports are false,″ Gorka said. “We’ve had a series of crimes committed, alleged hate crimes, by right-wing individuals in the last six months, that turned out to actually have been propagated by the left.”
          This quote really stuck out to me in the article. Like you ask, why? Well there is your motivation, or at least a part of it.

              Yea, because 'Sabastian' should never say what actually is taking place because he is an outspoken righty? I mean after all it is just Gorka, right?

            Two articles below; one story.

            source YPSILANTI, MI - Eastern Michigan students expressed surprise and disappointment on Tuesday, Oct. 24, to the arrest and arraignment of a former student in connection with racist vandalism found on campus.
            The racist messages targeted the black community at Eastern. Curlin is a black man and police believe his motive was personal.
            McDonald, who is black, felt the vandalism was intended to stir things up on campus.
            "I just think that he was just trying to create problems, because it doesn't make any sense," she said.

            Curlin is an African American.

            Eddie Curlin, 29, was arraigned in Washtenaw County District Court on three counts of malicious destruction of property, four counts of identity theft and one count of using computers to commit a crime in connection with the vandalism incidents that took place on campus beginning in fall 2016.

              Wow, that's pretty sad Rogue.

              Basically it sounds like that particular example was in fact someone who did it out of a desire to increase racial tensions...

              I can understand why it made the local students feel sad and disappointed. As I said earlier, I think false reports like these just make it more difficult for those with legitimate complaints. Unfortunately, aren't there enough of those to be concerned about already?

              IMHO what we need are solutions and understanding, not people (apparently on both sides of the political aisle) who are trying to make things worse.

                Trolling or not, I sincerely hope you realize whose water you're carrying around here.

                Sad,

                  Here we go again with the trolling diatribe.

                  I just can't believe that anyone so admires such a horrible person.

                  If you think he's trolling, feel free to report it, but please don't accuse other forumites of trolling. The best response to a real troll is to ignore them and deny them the attention and reactions that they desperately crave.

                  And you never know - he could very well be sincere in his admiration for Dr. Gorka. He's not without his admirers.

                These types of hoaxes have become low hanging fruit. Graffiti something really offensive amidst groups who are already easily offended and networked together on Facebook and Twitter...

                It's the Easy-Bake Oven recipe for anonymous provocateurs.

                Current global warming temperature trend: 0.05ºC per decade, plus or minus 0.1ºC (source: UN IPCC AR5) ...Yes, the error rate is higher than the estimated rate of change.

                "Anthropogenic global warming is a proposed theory whose basic mechanism is well understood, but whose magnitude is highly uncertain. The growing evidence that climate models are too sensitive to CO2 has implications for the attribution of late-20th-century warming and projections of 21st-century climate. If the recent warming hiatus is caused by natural variability, then this raises the question as to what extent the warming between 1975 and 2000 can also be explained by natural climate variability." --Dr. Judith Curry, chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology

                        Hope he gets the help he needs.....
                        Are you aware that there are people in this world that have a severe medical condition which causes them to be that way? My mother for instance is one of those people. She is a truck driver that has bad knees and a bad back from driving the truck but you probably do not care about that case either. Jesus Saves..
