    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Do you have anything other than the TEACHER'S word? So we are supposed to believe the teacher no matter what right?

    Exactly. There's a lot of conjecture and a lot of assumption but very little fact on either side.

    And for Caine and Scarecrow, it's not "believe the teacher no matter what". It's "believe the one claiming to be a conservative no matter what".

    What does this have to do with the comment I made about Will Rockwell's instant assumption about Kansas and conservatives?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    It has to do with the topic, we don't have ALL SIDES to the story, so to say it is the teachers fault or the school's is PREMATURE. That goes for any side.

    Then why quote me?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "

    You are showing your ignorance in the common knowledge that Kansas is overwhelmingly and stupifyingly conservative. Conservative enough that State hearings had to be held to decide whether evolution should be taught in schools. IN 2005!!! In his book "What's the Matter With Kansas", author Thomas Frank
    describes the rise of conservatism and the so-called far right in the social and political landscape of Kansas. He finds extraordinary irony in working-class Kansans' overwhelming support for Republican politicians, despite his belief that the economic policies of the Republican party are wreaking havoc on their communities and livelihoods for the benefit of the extremely wealthy. Meanwhile, he says, the party fails to deliver on the "moral" issues (such as abortion and gay rights) which brought the support of cultural conservatives in the first place -- deepening a cycle of frustration aimed at cultural liberalism
    So when you respond to the mention of Kansas being conservative as an "idiotic rant", you run the risk of being identified as an ignorant stooge.

    And you are showing your hysteria in even commenting that the man is overly conservative to the point of standing out. You just simply do not know.
