    What college or university ever burned a movie?

    Bought a rifle last weekend like the one I used in ’Nam, but a different caliber. “Liberal” means recognizing what society asks the military to do for them, while not taking any blame for any “moral” issues they then put on the sniper, or bomber pilot, but certainly not on the folks who send them in.


    “Moral authority” to the “conervative mind” means never having to say you’re sorry.

    Sigh, too much NewsMax around for my liking. It was banned at UM and then the screening was reinstated. Wow, WHAT a monster controversy. And a clear violation of the first amendment, after all, EVERY movie house must be FORCED to show EVERY neocon war glorifying movie EVER MADE, repeatedly and forever, nonstop or the CONSTITUTION is SHREDDED!
    Nothing like you know, political protests being broken up by police with pepper spray, that’s perfectly constitutional. And First Amendment Zones were approved by George Washington when he said, “The people clearly have a right to petition the government for redress of grievances, just out of my sight and hearing so I don’t have to pay any attention to it”. And Thomas Payne clearly approved of the NSA in his statement that “the government has the right, nay the DUTY to know what every citizen of the republic is doing at any time”.

    If no university has burned the film, this cartoon makes no sense.

    I thought the movie was profoundly against the Iraq war. Maybe that is selective observation on my part. The senselessness of the conflict came through loud and clear. The soldiers were doing their best as they tried to follow orders and protect each other. I saw no glorification of the war and, as someone who marched against it, still respect those who fought bravely for such a hollow and senseless objective. Thanks W, the gift that keeps on giving.

    He may be referring to this: http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/american-sniper-banned-college/2015/04/11/id/637912/

    And he has a point. The same campuses that protest acts like those described turn around and do the same thing. There is a question of scale granted. But the Left is just as intolerant as the Right. Who knew.

    Interesting. Payne usually has a more outrageous troll-bait theme that reaps a lot of right-wing thumbs-up right-ons. I’m thinking it’s getting harder for the wing-nuts to justify the actions of the current political climate. Inversely, the lies are becoming more obvious.

    Interesting that the conservative cartoonists (like FOX News) have ignored the gyrocopter incident, huh?

    OBTW, it’s called, “chumming”.
    .
    In CA, it’s illegal to chum for certain species of game fish. Unsporting, doncha know.

    Says someone who never watches FOX News. I guess I’m hallucinating. But your attempt to change the subject is duly noted.

    The fact is that the tolerant Left has ALWAYS been tolerant of speech, as long as it agrees with theirs.
