Regarding the South, have some of you lost your minds and as well as your ethics?

I am specifically talking about a thread and certain posts that are in gray at the bottom.

Have you actually read it and do you hear what you are endorsing?
Do you really support bashing up the South good enough and turning it black and blue?

And "FINISH HIM!" What the hell does that mean? There is no HIM. This is NOT Mortal Kombat.

You are not calling for justice in supporting this. You are calling for Old Testament vengeance. The collateral damage must not concern you if you are going to bash up the South. It is not possible to pick out every one who deserves it and blast them without hitting others.

I have never been so astounded, shocked, and disappointed. For all of your caveats about 'we don't mean you', it appears you will gladly smack every Southerner on DU if you support this thinking. If you had told me I would read this on a site called Democratic Underground and that it would be supported, I would never have believed it.

Many valid points have been made. However, there is no way to understand them through this blatant blast of hate.

And congratulations, you have now lowered yourself to the level of the haters down here. With your support for this approach, you are all standing in slime and throwing it at each other.

You cannot destroy the South metaphorically or otherwise without destroying the nation.

Go for me now. I no longer believe there are any limits to what people believe and will say here. Democratic my ass!

These are parts of posts from this thread:

You're not gonna get far worrying about stuff like this.
Your over-identification with the land you live in prevents you from executing Mortal Kombat's 'FINISH HIM!' on this evil structure.
Yeah, I'm putting it in comic book terms. Good vs. Evil. Superman vs. Darkseid. Fantastic Four vs. Doctor Doom.

Do you have the courage to 'FINISH HIM!'? Or are you gonna spend wasted time looking for offense because somebody bashed the region that's politically at the root of all impediments to progress in this nation?

Finish that sucker!

The Republican Party used to be the party that freed the slaves after the Civil War then became the party of descendants of the slaveowners after the Civil Rights.
You KNOW who they are & you KNOW why they are what they are.

I'll HELP them so-called "bash the South" because it needs bashing.
It needs to be rebuilt & refurbished. And I am unapologetic in wanting to see this happen.
I have lived in the South all of my life, I got roots going way back here in this land.
When they start "the bashing" it don't bother me one bit.
I know the purpose of the bashing. I know what's being bashed.
It motivates me not demotivates me.

They BUILD the bridge when they "bash".
And once we "bash" the South up good enough, it'll shake out the disease that plagues the South.
Then the South will be in the recovery room healing from its "bashes" & becoming a stronger body in the end.

Before you can turn the South Blue, you need to turn it Black & Blue.

There is some serious shite going down at a fracking protest in Rexton, New Brunswick.

Natives reportedly torch police cruisers at anti-fracking protest in N.B. 43

HALIFAX - A Native anti-fracking protest turned violent Thursday after RCMP moved in to break up a standoff, with protesters hit with rubber bullets and pepper spray and then retaliating by torching cop cars.

Mounties were trying to enforce an Oct. 3 court injunction against the standoff near Rexton, where SWN Resources Canada is testing for shale gas.

Elsipogtog Mi'kmaq First Nation members have been blocking workers access to their trucks.The protesters had been there since Sept. 30."It is a dangerous situation," Const. Jullie Rogers-Kent told QMI Agency.

A video posted online shows protesters cussing at cops and daring them to release their police dogs while others yelled that there were elders and children present. Other videos shows a line of police stretched across Hwy. 11, moving slowly to contain the protest, and protesters washing out their eyes from what appeared to be pepper spray.

Const. Rogers-Kent would not confirm, but tweets and photos from the scene suggest several arrests and at least four police cruisers up in flames.

A moratorium on fracking was recently lifted by the provincial government.

The Native are concerned the fracking extracting shale gas through fracturing deep underground rock could damage the environment and contaminate their drinking water.

The RCMP came well-armed. Neither side is backing down.

Maryville Sheriff White about Anonymous:"They are a bunch of cowards." (And more)

White, meanwhile, had his own criticism for the hacker group Anonymous, saying that authorities had detected a "pretty credible threat" that someone had attempted to infiltrate the Sheriff's Department's computer server, forcing the department to temporarily take it down.

"They are truly a bunch of cowards, hiding behind--even their name, 'Anonymous.' What do you do with people like that?" he said. "They all need to get jobs and quit living with their parents."

Dear Sheriff White,
YOU don't DO anything with Anonymous.
However, you are going to find out what they can do with you.
Hope you enjoy the ride.
