    Re: Anti-Gay Attack Reported in Austin

    My point is, there have been a lot of flase "Hate crime stories" and not having all the information can lead you too look stupid if it turns out there is more to teh story.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Agreed! Interesting that you are called out for simply bringing the question up? Interesting?

    The "kicker" for me is in the quoted "hate crime" in the story.. Smells funny to me.

    You aren't allowed to question the claims of a protected class when they make claims. It's annoying to me. Do I believe that these folks were wronged, most then likely. Do I have compassion for them, absolutely. HOWEVER, until more information comes out, and not just the victims version...

    I'm just not gonna get too excited.

    Yeah... you don't go clubbing a lot do you? It's clear that you don't. Let me give you a clue... People who club aren't thinking they'll get beaten up by 2nd amendment right supporting hillbillies after leaving the club. Usually normal people, don't really fear for their lives so they don't think they'll need to bring a gun to a club or a restaurant, or a ****ing post office. Seriously, is every answer that you give to a situation devoid of rationality? Do you just have a Thomas Jefferson Doll that you shake and it gives you a constitutional amendment to yell out whenever you see a problem? Because you sound like a person who doesn't go out a lot outside of their job.

    Mr. Vic has a point. This might be a case of some dude getting his ass kicked, and he just happens to be gay.

    Yep. Or he provoked the fight, who knows?

    Wait for more information before condemning... I'd of thought Nancy Grace's embarrassment would have taught all that lesson

    Attacking people on the basis of their race, gender, or sexual orientation is about the most moronic behavior I can imagine.
    I don't see it as any more "moronic" than attacking people on the basis of hair color, weight, or for having a mole on the tip of the nose. Senseless violence is, well... senseless.

    So, you're saying we should not jump to conclusions and should wait for all the facts before assessing, right?

    It's generally a good idea. Remeber that idiot woman that claimed Obama supporters branded a "B" into her face? How about the MIT wasn't it? (Playing Eve atm and this browser get's wonky) Professor who claimed someone wrote racial slurs and hung a noose on her door?

    Maybe these two picked a fight and got beat up, maybe they mouthed off and got their asses beat for being twits...

    The thing is, there have been too many cases of "victims" lying about supposed hate crimes that I've stopped believing jsut their word. Know what I mean?

    Your pissant little rant means nothing, I support self defence and firmly believe an armed individual is realitvely safe individual.
