Am I an extremist for opposing drone attacks on innocent children?

November 8, 2012

Again, EJ, I ask you, am I an extremist for opposing Obama's attacks on children? You called me an extremist and raised your hands to your ears and cried that you will not open up your mind to consider other viewpoints.

A Nobel Peace Prize winner can mutilate and kill children, and yet I'm the extremist because I don't support that? And others at the Athens Banner get upset with me and want me banned because I'm an extremist? Am I killing children?

Compare Obama with Dr. King. Dr. King also was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Did Dr. King order US citizens detained without trial? Did Dr. King order innocent children to be killed and maimed?

Dr. Martin Luther King said that the United States is “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today” and nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. The image of America will never again be the image of revolution, freedom, and democracy, but the image of violence and militarism."--Dr. MLK

Martin Luther King, a REAL Nobel Peace Prize winner unlike Obama.

So, I support someone like MLK who was a true Nobel Peace winner, and EJ supports Obama who wages war and hurts and kills children, and who also was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and yet I am the extremist and should be called names by EJ and his ilk?

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
