    Ok, well, I think the Progressive agenda is one of the more racist, vindictive and damaging approaches this country has seen in many years. If that makes you uncomfortable, too bad, but I prefer to call it out.

    You're free to complain about anything you want. No one said you can't. But this story is just a story about some dumb jerk and there are tons of dumb jerks in America. No law against being a dumb jerk, nor can there be in any general sense. That is thought control, and government enforced thought control is well more dangerous than random idiots.

    What other things would you lump into the "damaging life decision" category?
    Actually, I want control over the "damaging life decision" definition. You can do a lot with the power to define that.

    It's more than being a dumb jerk. The KKK is a terrorist organization, as well as a hate group. Making a tot wear a uniform of such organizations is tantamount to child abuse, IMO.

    Wear it if you want. If you come home that night with no candy and an ass-beating, it's your fault.

    That's rather a subjective thing isn't it. Why criticize or demean the concerns of others? It seems like an odd reaction. Defensive almost.

    A Virginia mother let her 7-year-old son wear a Ku Klux Klan costume this Halloween because, she insisted, it's a family tradition.

    "My brother has [worn it] when he was in Kindergarten and when he was 13," Black said. She went on to claim there is nothing wrong with the costume or with the White Supremacist group, which she says still exists in their Virginia town. "It's supposed to be white with white, black with black, man with woman and all of that. That's what the KKK stands for."


    Seriously?....seriously!!....seriously

    How stupid do you have to be to not get that this is, at the very least, a really really bad idea for your child's Halloween costume? For all those folks out there who claim that racism is dead....ummmmmmm....no.
    The KKK is a domestic terrorist organization, as well as a hate group. Since 7 is too young to make decisions on his own, forcing a child to wear the uniform of a terrorist organization and hate group is a form of child abuse, IMO.

    Her name is "Black"? That's too funny.

    The kid made the choice to wear it, so he wasn't forced. The KKK is a retard organization, but that's not illegal. Anyone is free to espouse anything they want so long as they do not infringe upon the rights of others in the process.

    I am NOT going to dig through volumes of old posts or anything else because you challenge that statement. You don't want to believe it ....fine, don't. But once again you charge in and make unsupported claims in an effort to discredit others based on nothing other then your emphatic denial. Not good enough BM. I'm not an idiot and I do not imagine events in my life. It has been said, it has been said here.
