Hey Kevin, reports say that he’s in Moscow now. What do you think about that? Is he still your hero?
He posted this on another Snowden story as well. Instead of being infuriated that Snowden has compromised our national security by giving classified information to other countries, he and others would rather make this narcissist a hero. Espionage - “Espionage” means “stealing important documents from a government and passing on to another government.” There was a lot of bitching after the Boston bombings about what we could/should have done to prevent it and future events from happening, but they don’t want to accept the reality of what that takes to accomplish in this day and age. There are people out there that want to do us harm and we need to be one step ahead of them at all costs. That is not paranoia, it’s reality. It seems to be cool nowadays to either hate/distrust the government or to be a conspiracy theorist (the tin foil hatters). And God forbid if some travesty like that happens again they will blame the Government for not preventing it. Seems a little hypocritical to me.
Ummm did you reply to the wrong post or is your reading comprehension just that poor.
Pointless article. Buzzfeed is a champion of equal rights for everyone, but age differences in relationships are somehow weird? Or am I missing some other point here.
Your anger is clouding your reasoning and you seem to be assuming that all the responses that don’t agree with yours come from ‘white’ people. Could they not be from Latins, Asians, or any other race as well? My response (and reneeb15’s) was not condoning Paula Deen’s actions (I don’t condone them just so you know), but rather what you posted and the irony of it. Can you get behind that logic?
I would argue that it was treason rather than espionage, but either way he is a traitor to this country and has compromised our national security. He is no hero in my eyes by any means.
I would think it’s because he labeled ‘white’ people as dipshits instead of just saying, “People need to stop defending this woman” where he would not be labeling just one race, but people in general.
I hate to say this, but I am leaning towards this as well.
Make that 1 and 2, but I do agree with you.
The list isn’t complete without Family Guy’s version.
I don’t care if he seemed like a cool guy or not. This man AMBUSHED (and killed) a cop’s daughter and her fiance that were sitting in a car, and AMBUSHED (one died and the other injured) two LAPD police officers that were also sitting in their car at a light. He then killed another cop and injured another. After it was all said and done there were four dead and four injured. He threatened to murder cops and their families. And why? Not because he was beaten, or his family was in danger, or some other life threatening injustice, but because he was fired…rightly or not. He was given the opportunity numerous times to turn himself in, but he choose not to so he could continue with his mission. This man deserved what he received and none of you can justify the horrific acts that he performed. He performed cowardly acts (ambushing) in the name of his justice and he will get no sympathy from me. Oh, but the LAPD is corrupt, he was a victim, conspiracy…blah,blah,blah. Many times life isn’t fair, get over it. And get off the LAPD’s back. Yeah, there are some bad apples, but name a state that doesn’t have a few. I live in Cali now, but spent some time in Houston and Cali ain’t got nothing on them. Louisiana, NY… I could go on.
I think you misunderstood whatIwrote.Iam not pretending it’s not there.Ilived in Houston foracouple of years and it was quite prevalent on BOTH sides, so by your logicIwas having ‘current struggles’ as well.Ichoose not to feed in to it and tried to view people onaperson to person basis. Some were good and some were not. Nobody is trying to erase your history (don’t we all haveahistory?) or see you as invisible.Ipersonally find other cultures fascinating.
Iguess that you are fromasmall town withastatement like ‘a predominately white community’, butIhappen to live inalarge city where the ‘white’ population is definitely the minority-41% (Houston was as well-47%) andIhave no problem with that. If your town is so bad that you are constantly being reminded about your race(“It’s very easy forawhite person to forget about race because they’re not constantly being reminded of it.”) then for heavens sake move or find peace and strength with in yourself and be the better person.
Iam not asking for race to be invisible, but rather tolerant of others and then racism will eventually be eliminated.
