Why do you permit anonymous posting if all you do when you hit some meaningful criticism is essentially say "your post requires no response because its anonymous."
I permit anonymous posting because several readers who wish to comment feel the need to do so anonymously. I personally think folks should have the courage of their conviction to put their name on their comments, especially when they are critical of others who comment here (not criticisms of yours truly, I could give a rip). Nonetheless, if people wish to remain anonymous, so be it.
However, merely allowing others to take that route does not exempt them from commentary, which at times includes ridicule from me and others for their choice to remain anonymous.
Investment in the central city is pork? Are you high?
Knee jerk calls for increased spending on failed social service programs as a means to combat the violent gang clture in
are not solutions, and yes are merely pork. Like it or not, “anti-poverty” and “anti-violence” programs have become a cottage industry. Milwaukee
And, no, I am not high. But thanks for asking.
(Finally, one answer to a whole group of recent emails)
What intrigues me about Fraley's blog, and so many of the other conservatives' blogs - - McBride, Sykes, Wagner, Wigdeson, etc, et al - - is how many angry or sarcastic posts are about Black or other minority people or leaders.
These are racist in that they either reflect disproportionate negativity towards minorities, or that they stir the pot in the community against minority leaders or issues.
Deal with it, Brian.
Seems to me that you are protesting a bit too much, Brian. You DO post a lot of angry rants about black officials. Maybe you don't realize how that appears.
Also, Fraley seems to jump all over petty, meaningless stuff to belittle black elected officials. He can be aggressive with the white folks too but usually over actual issues.
The point that people are making is that you hold them to a different standard and treat them differently.
Dear Anonymous (not sure if this is one or several people).
I select the targets of my commentary by the content of their character and by their actions, not by the color of their skin.
As Jim Doyle, Peg Lautenschlager, Kathy Falk, Mark Pocan, Tom Reynolds, Xoff, Teresa Estness and others can attest, I am an equal opportunity ‘ranter.’
I will not be intimidated or shamed into being silent on issues or actions of elected officials based on their skin color or ethnic or religious background. I don't believe in having a sliding scale of standards based on race, class, religion or creed.
