Joseph McCarthy was a lying drunk, try and keep up, eh?

And vicious fighting for a flawed ideology?

BULLS**T!

They were fighting viciously because the US invaded their land for NO GOOD REASON.

WHY?

Can we assume that due to your zealousness there's absolutely no communist made goods in your house?

They were not nearly as vicious as the United States military, which wiped out three million Vietnamese.

What is vicious is the hatred, racism, and total lack of compassion coming from people like yourself.

The real threat this country faces is not from Muslims or any other nationality, it is homegrown, ignorant and violent white men like Timothy McVeigh, the likes of which will continue to plague this great nation in their defense of bigotry, intolerance, and terrorism.

I grew up in southeast Virginia, I have seen racism up close and personal growing up and it makes me sick when I see someone displaying racism or acting like it is no big deal to be racist and support racists.

He was also apparently a VERY mean drunk. A problem that was compounded by the fact he got drunk every day of his adult life.

Really?

How?

Or is it just that in reality your allegation a man deserves respect merely for taking an oath is just another load of steaming self-Righteous BS?

You must not be reading the OP's posts where the person clearly doesn't understand what racism is therefore it is hard for them to see it when they do. Not a knock on Kentucky, it is a knock on the OP and their support for something obviously racist.

Default it doesn't bother me one bit

If it's ok to stereotype people who live in trailers, rednecks and such then this is no big deal.

What's really absurd is OAS (a person who I do not believe actually served his country for a second) asserting that there is nothing offensive about the display. Certainly, the guy who set it up knew he was being offensive, else the display makes no sense at all.

So... how stupid does one have to be to not see the offense in something so deliberately offensive?
