Hey, when you realize the same BS you spew here, is the same BS that the neo-Nazis are spewing in SC, perhaps a vacation from this thread is in order.

Ga. Confederate flag supporters face terrorism charges
Last Updated Oct 12, 2015 2:22 PM EDT
Fifteen individuals associated with a group of Confederate flag supporters in Douglas County, Ga., have been indicted on terrorism charges, it was announced on Monday.
The charges are related to a July 25 incident in which members of a group called Respect the Flag drove a convoy of vehicles displaying Confederate flags through a neighborhood in Douglasville, when they were involved in an altercation with residents outside a home where a children's birthday party was taking place.
According to a July 27 Atlanta Journal-Constitution report, those engaged in the confrontation offered conflicting accounts of what happened.
Residents said the demonstrators entered their neighborhood and started shouting racial slurs.
"One had a gun, saying he was gonna kill the n******," Melissa Alford, who was holding the birthday party, told the paper. "Then one of them said, 'Gimme the gun, I'll shoot them n******."
Levi Bush, one of the drivers, told the paper the convoy had been attacked by residents throwing rocks, and after he got a flat tire the residents swarmed his truck and threatened him.
Video of the altercation, during which police are seen separating the demonstrators from residents, was later posted online:
On Monday the Douglas County District Attorney's Office released a letter stating that following an investigation by local police and the D.A., a grand jury handed down indictments charging individuals from Respect the Flag with violations of the state's Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act and making terroristic threats.
Two members of the group were also indicted on battery charges in a separate incident that took place that same day.

Georgia couple gets prison for racist threats at child's birthday party
By Mayra Cuevas and Ralph Ellis
(CNN) - A Georgia couple who rode with a Confederate flag-waving group that made armed threats against African-Americans at a child's birthday party were sentenced to prison Monday.
Jose "Joe" Torres, was sentenced to 20 years, with 13 years in prison, after a jury convicted him on three counts of aggravated assault, one count of making terroristic threats and one count of violating of Georgia's Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act.
Kayla Norton was sentenced to 15 years, with six years in prison. She was convicted on one count of making terroristic threats and one count of violation of the Street Gang Act.
"Many people tried to make the case about simply flying the Confederate Battle Flag," Douglas County District Attorney Brian Fortner said in a statement. "This case was about a group of people riding around our community, drinking alcohol, harassing and intimidating our citizens because of the color of their skin."
On July 25, 2015, Torres and Norton, joined about a dozen other people in a convoy of pickup trucks waving large Confederate flags as they drove around Douglas County, a suburban Atlanta community. Most of them belonged to a group called "Respect the Flag."
"The convoy of trucks passed by the victim's residence where the victims were grilling hot dogs and hamburgers while hosting a child's birthday party featuring a bouncy castle, snow-cone machines, and a DJ," the district attorney's office posted on its official Facebook page.
The party-goers said the people in the trucks yelled racial slurs as they passed, the statement said.
The drivers parked the trucks near the house, prosecutors said. Torres was part of a smaller group that "threatened to kill the party goers while repeatedly using derogatory racial slurs against them," said the statement.
"Torres, who had retrieved a shotgun from his vehicle, pointed his shotgun at the group of African American party-goers and stated he was going to kill them while his co-defendants stated that 'the little ones can get one too,' referring to the young children at the party," the statement said.
Norton was accused of making similar threats. The victims said some member of Torres' group was armed with a knife and a tire tool.
According to the district attorney's statement, Torres testified he carried the shotgun because he feared for his friends' safety. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported members of "Respect the Flag" said people at the party had thrown objects at them.
CNN has tried to reach the two defendants' lawyers for comment.
After the arrests, investigators looked through the defendants' Facebook accounts, the statement said.
"Law enforcement was able to locate numerous posts and messages indicating that members of the group were white supremacists who discussed attending KKK rallies, joining Skinheads Nation, and making numerous derogatory remarks about African Americans as a whole," the DA's statement said.
Video of Monday's sentencing shot by WSB-TV, a CNN affiliate, showed both Torres and Norton breaking down in court as Judge William McClain handed down the sentence.
Norton apologized for her role in the incident saying, "I want you all to know that is not me. That is not me, that is not him. I would never walk up to you and say those words to you. I'm so sorry that happened to you. I am so sorry."
Hyesha Bryant, one of the people at the party, testified at the hearing and told Norton, "What you said affected my life. It affected my children's lives."
But Bryant ended up telling Norton that "I forgive you, I forgive all of you."
A jury convicted Torres and Norton on February 6. They are both banished from Douglas County when they're released from prison.
Fifteen members of the Respect the Flag group were originally indicted. The disposition of all their cases is unknown, but the district attorney said some of them pleaded guilty to similar charges and received shorter sentences.

"Prosecutors have said that the cases against Torres, Norton and other defendants are not based on their right to fly a Confederate flag, but on threats against the victims."
(D umb s, you can goog L that whole phrase, for ref... the ny time or post, me thinks]
This fake news agency;
should have left their reference to that flag out of it's reported story.
But alas, they just had to keep repeating it over and over and over.
Mr. Torres and the Ms. [And compadres, I mean accomplices ] COULD have been waving some chitty as's net... they woulda got the same prison sentence...
(Or... omg! Maybe not? But...)
I believe they would and should have... what say you o dbaters of fish and other blown-up-outta-proportion crappie topic trollmeisters?
Could that reporter from cnn have left that multi-flag reference out? Would they have brought it up so much if they all had horribly made wooden nets? Wavin' dat sheet as they rode by yelling their racial slurs and attacking the birthday party attendees?
Hey d umb s, did you know this Torres guy?
I jus know the beisbol one... you prolly know more dan me.
What with your extensive knowledge of flags and meth and treble hooks and basketball rebound materials and stock pricing [but only the cheap as's $18 dollar ones) and nets and how to value them and warranties and spacing and how to Google hookdfisherman phrases and, and, and....
Lol, there's so many... I'd have to look up all the rest... do you think I should?

I'm a little surprised those 2 haven't even once come out and try to defend their political beliefs. Hell I had an easier time smoking out an 8 foot Black Bear out of a cave once in Redding Ca. Then to get either one of them to respond to all the Chaos their political party caused once they came to power!!!!
