There is Quentin, a man from Zimbabwe who moved here to escape the BS known as Robert Mugabe.
There is Major Swanson of Swanblog who is in Iraq kicking ass and taking names...in a legal sense mind you.
There's the best radio show host, though he is not a full time one, Walter E Williams who missed his true calling and became an economist instead...though no doubt he is kicking ass and taking names there as well.
There was Gary who had the most kick ass belt buckle of all who showed up with his family and introduced himself and his family to me at the state fair.
And then there is good ol' Lawrence who was a frequent caller to my radio show in my radio show days who I miss sincerely.
And then I see this BS.
And it angers me because you have got to just wonder how stupid are people. How intellectually impotent one must be to put a freaking noose on the door of a black professor. Not to mention the noose incident in Jena, which I'm sure did not add fuel to the fire.
GROW THE F UP PEOPLE!
What? Is it 1920?
Hard core, evil, tripping-old-people-in-the-streets, kicking-puppies-in-the-yard conservative that I am, and try as I might to uphold my reputation as the evil, hate filled, kicker of kittens that I am, I deem it necessary to condemn such idiotic and ignorant behavior (though, such condemnation would seem to be implied).
Such childishness besmirches the honor and integrity of the men aforementioned above and those like them and shows you they will forever be superior people to the idiots that pulled such a stunt.
And while of course, because I'm a conservative, therefore I MUST be racist, I will ignore the association of racism that comes with conservatism foisted upon us by the left and express my disgust anyway.
Though, not to let readers such as Dtrum and Mr. Fuller down (who are beloved connoisseurs of cynicism), and to uphold my reputation as a cynical, angry man, I would be lying if I did not say that the hairs on the back of my neck are standing up to the point I would assert a 30% chance this may be a set up in the first place.
In either case, both prospects are disgusting and shame is plentiful enough to go around.
