~ Unconscionable! ~
THE KLAN FORUM
Can't speak for anyone else, but I really want to know an accurate history of humanity on Earth. So jump and twitch all you want about anti-semitism, curiousity drives me. Not hating Jews. The crooked Jewish history is merely in my way. And I'd like to push it out of the way of anyone else who comes this way. History public service. Don't waste any time trying to navigate that black sea of compilations. The bulk can safely be discarded, as it exists elsewhere.
Posted on the Lancaster Newspaper’s Talkback forum by “Whirlwnd.”.
Me too! I want to know an accurate history of humanity on Earth! Wow! Is this guy a great scholar and intellectual or what? He’s an expert on Biblical History, European History, U.S. History and an expert Economist to boot! Who is this man who’s reportedly living in Lancaster County? Is he an author, a great scholar, a professor, a Pulitzer Prize contender?
No! He’s a card carrying Ku Klux Klan member! He gets all his information from Klan sites and then repeats it on the Lancaster Online forum.
This particular poster tries to stay composed and intellectual and likes to talk about how we need a serious discussion about race. It is, of course, the white race that has advanced far beyond any other and is responsible for all the major advancements in science and technology and civilization. What our Klanner really wants to discuss is how to get rid of everyone but Christian whites.
And he very often loses his composed, intellectual, hate filled shell with nasty posts like this:
Oh baby, Khazaria is real. It's the Jew version of history that's corrupt. Apparently corrupting as well. That's how rot works, whatever it touches.
That is how rot works. The Klan has been allowed to post their hate for almost three years on the Lancaster Newspaper’s forum and more and more are coming.
This email in yesterday:
Becky, I am against these guys as much as the next, maybe more. But I have thought hard about it, and aren't they within their rights to post their drivel anyway? We really can't pick and choose what is acceptable for the masses, or that leads to, you know....
Ignoring it, or talking over it as the TBers are doing is the best way. Plus, people who read WWs and Retep's stuff can read it and compare it, and dispute it with facts if they wish.
Just a thought - keep up the great work Becky!!!
Yes, they have the constitutional right to walk down the street in their robes and hoods and have a rally. They obviously have a legal right to have newspapers and flyers and websites.
But they do not have a legal right to threaten violence against an individual or race or religion.
And this is a newspaper forum. In the year 2008, you do not allow the Klan or anyone else to post hate messages based solely on race or religion. Period. You do not allow it. The post I quoted this morning should have been deleted and the poster banned. He should have been banned years ago. End of story.
This email in this morning from someone who also emailed me yesterday about what was going on:
It is really disheartening.
There are more and more KKK threads -- a really long financial one today.
LNP is becoming an arm of the KKK by allowing that to occur -- it reflects their tacit approval.
Yesterday's victory is followed by an ONSLAUGHT of hate-speech today, and still LNP moderators are silent.
You are the ONLY ONE speaking the truth ...
The recipe writers turned that around again today (yeah!) but you are correct - this is tacit approval by the Lancaster Newspapers and it is unbelievable and directly reflective of the institutionalized racism at those papers.
More and more Klan members are joining the forum and having a field day with their hate. Several days ago I published a Klan member's post under the Intell article, “1 wounded in city shooting,” (click here). .
This occurred in the 500 block of Juniata Street, so the forum racists assumed all involved are black or Hispanic. And this very short story ends with this sentence:
"Right now we're trying to canvass for witnesses, but we're getting little cooperation," Berkihiser said.
This is described in the first sentence as “a late Friday evening shooting...” So how long had the police been “canvassing for witnesses” when this officer is quoted by the Intell reporter? They go to press by midnight. It certainly could not have been long.
The Lancaster Police are famous for saying this. Maybe they should change their approach or the officers involved in these incidents. Did any of the officers speak Spanish? Maybe the people were scared and needed assurances they would be safe. Maybe they were reeling from the crime and had not gotten their thoughts together. Maybe the police lied.
But what I do know is you do not allow this post on the Talkback forum to stand:
Let's face the fact that these people do not wish to help our community in tracking down the shooter. They don't even wish to be part of civilized society. The fact is clear that they have their own set of rules and that law enforcement (as we know it) has no place there.
As a mid-east friend of mine says ..... "They act as if they are beasts. So why not treat them as they'er action warrant!! Put a fence around them and let them all kill each other!! Then we'll be rid of them!!"
Sounds right to me!!!
Tell it to the Lancaster Police Chief and Barack Obama, mister Klansman.
You do not allow a poster who assumes the people involved are black or Hispanic because of an address to refer to them as “beasts” and talk about “getting rid of them.”
You do not allow this violent hatred on a newspaper forum. You do not allow it! You delete it and ban the poster.
This is disgusting and unconscionable behavior by the Lancaster Newspapers.
