That's all fair, I think a lot of people support the death penalty for child rapists.

It's just odd, as has been pointed out, that certain comments like that get a bit of a pass from your side of things. Obviously these people are not terrorists, and they should not be shot.

I'm sorry, I'm sure that must have been a horrific experience for you. I certainly agree, and I think most people would as well, that child rapists, whether legal citizens or illegal immigrants, deserve the harshest penalties our society deems just.

The young people were protesting a policy that bars Georgia's most competitive state colleges and universities from accepting illegal immigrants, and they were opposing strict new state legislation.

Deport em!
As soon as they "declared their status" they should have been taken into custody, bagged, tagged and returned to their nation of origin.

That's what the hard left illegal alien supporters do. Constantly take comments people make who oppose illegal immigration to extremes.

You disagree with OUR side you must be a RACIST, you want them DEAD, you think they're ANIMALS.

Get off your high horses and actually READ what someone posts, and take what they say LITERALLY. Don't interject your perceptions on what someone says. Read what they say and take it literally.

....Someone in this very thread said they should be shot, and it was the same conversation. I just wanted to clarify that that's not what she wanted.

Sorry for ASKING whether or not she believed the EXTREME position that had already been stated by someone here, with no one on your side saying anything negative about it until after it was pointed out by us, despite having several opportunities.

I don't give it a pass, I just take into consideration that someone with those views may have personal reasons for feeling as they do and those feelings/views aren't going to change until they feel ready to change them, for whatever reason. I do not know what their life experiences have been to have helped form their views.

Would you take the same approach if I said anyone who actively opposes illegal immigration should be shot? Obviously not, but something could totally be shaping my views, so give me a pass, right?

Give me a break.

That's what the pro-illegals do. They take the radical remarks of a few anti's and smear our entire movement with them. I don't advocate violence either unless absolutely necessary.

Actually, yes, I would give you a pass based on the same criteria and I have done so in the past when a now long gone poster made a comment that those who opposed illegal immigration should be dropped in the worst parts of Mexico so they could be shot at or tormented by the cartels. However, I am not willing to give a pass to those who actually threaten to take up shovels and axes against us. Saying someone should be shot is not the same as actually threatening to do the act.
