Last chance to correct the record? KKK incident
My neighbor had moved in and found , to his dismay that two black families lived across the street.
He called friends to help figure out what to do.

thier solution was to run those families out of "His" neighborhood.
I was th ehonkey who was a friend to those two families.

I stood in his way.

His kkk buddies stood in my yard and argued with me.
I was unrepentant:
"My Bible says we are all cousins."

The threats resulted in my posting of a thread over my crisis.
My neighbors: blackand white stood teogther and confronted this crisis.
My neighbor's divorce illuminated the situation.

It wasn't me, or any of us, going out of our way to create conflict.
It was one bigot deciding he wanted to live in an all "white" neighborhood.

He is gone.
We are on a "neighborhood watch" (local PD patrol once an hour at our request)

Peace and quiet has returned.
(and we all get along a little bit better as a result of the incident)

1. That's a cool story.
I'm glad the rest of your neighborhood didn't side with the racists.

11. What would you have recommended if "the rest of the neighborhood did
side with the racists" -- leave, surrender, join them?

12. Shoot them
that's what guns are for right? To protect yourself from evil people?

13. Why do you answer a simple question with sarcasm? Are you embarassed to
say you would surrender?

Do you like to remain in the shadows and watch while others are attacked?

Do you have a childlike, naive faith in the police coming to your help?

3. Racist in our midst
the only way to stop the racist in our land is through exposure,put those vermints in the spotlight and they run for cover like the cowards they are.

4. Somewhat weird...
We are on a "neighborhood watch" (local PD patrol once an hour at our request)

Compare:

I don't trust the cops- some of them are klan
My attitude:
Decent people should be armed to resist the rightwing police state.
The deep south has become a rightwing police state.

Cops will never protect us real people.
They only protect their own.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

thanks folks/ today a self described Klansman visited me
He told me he would be back tonight.
During our 'friendly' discussion,
He mentioned a couple of his buddies in the local PD could run my plate and list any other residence I might have.
("Fraternity brothers" Like in Kappa Kappa Kappa)
Next door neighbor came over and avowed "We in this neighborhood stand together."
"Friendly visit" ended.
Maybe my visitor's buddies ran my neighbor's plate.
About an hour later, loud sound of someone beating on my neighbor's door, followed by yelling from my neighbor's house. Then two squad cars pulled up. One drove off with him in handcuffs.
Local PD removed the guy who'd vowed to stand by me!

5. 'splained better than the RNC can do for themselves
Edited on Mon Sep-15-03 12:01 AM by shatoga
that neighbor who sought to bully my neighbors,
because of skin color;
found himself dealing with someone beyond his comprehension. (me)

I am not intimidated by threats, and am only excited by bullets flying past.

The local KKK choose badly in whom to intimidate.
They'd never dealt with someone like me before.

Some moderator will delete this comment because I dared to dispute the great acerbic?

I think not!


We all must deal with reality at sometime in our lives.

I do so daily.

My reality is that I have a real life and phoneys oppose real people posting truths which oppose Bush lies./IMWIO

http://www.chemtrailcentral.com/ubb/Forum6/HTML/001023....

I have actually lived my life and still do.
(that's why my personal details are available for Bush minions to refer to-
Do they have no personal details because/ they are paid PR propangandists)
I believe so!

Neither did the minions of the Web of Deceit:

6. Did I post some "RNC Web of Deceit" stuff?
Well, if you say so: since it was all simply straight quotes from your own posts, you would of course know best. :-)

7. no- you exemplified instead of posting
Edited on Mon Sep-15-03 12:43 AM by shatoga
You did not post explicitely--
you exemplify....IMWIO

The 'web of deceit' IMHO comes to life as DU members read your posts.
acerbic's continued obsession with me gives credibility to:

10. Funny that the "web of deceit"
supports the corrupt industries that depend on the GOP...like polluters, or the GUN INDUSTRY.

9. Ah, consistency...
but really, are you qualified to comment unless YOU have personally actually had a firefight with armed Klansmen with your trusty machine gun, Ol' Betsy? (snicker)
