Great article. Just hope that the seriousness of the origional case does not get lost in the semantics of anti Klan/anti nazi amusement.

I agree with Ragnar, the seriousness of this case should not det lost with anti nazi slogans. I know people who have heard the details of this case, who are not in any way associated with anyone involved, and get nightmares. This was a horrible crime and I don't want to repeat the horrors of it on this board. It fills me with strange emotions. It is hard to believe that humans are capable of such things.
let's be clear, there is no race "Thing" it's all about what certain people do as individuals, I have no sympathy with those who try to make it a race issue. It has to do with those who committed the crimes. Those who want to make this an excuse for their race hate are blind to the notion that people do evil not races. We should have no sympathy for those who use a horrendous crime as justification for their political agenda. That goes equally for "Black Power" or KKK.
It'll be all right in the end. If it's not all right, it's not the end.

I agree totally. Still, the defusing of hate with laughter is a powerful image. It's a tactic that's seldom used.

I like it, I don't think the message will be lost. But it was good to see the KKK realise how ludicrous they sound sometimes.

I don't think they realized so much as those around them were shown how stupid they sound by the tactics used.

Sadly, Bigots never really seem to catch on to how brain dead they sound when they're spouting off their hate messages.

I remember in college asking someone who was the middle of a racist rant isn't white a color...and could we really be called "White" when we turn such a lovely shade of burnt sienna with proper application of the sun or chemicals?

Of course, that just got him started on a rant about women and being shallow and focusing on appearances...which I walked away and allowed the little brat to rant to his friends.

They mostly rely on the "red herring" theory of argument.

E.g. I was having a discussion on one web site about whether the police were racist or not.

I mentioned "say a black guy pulls up at the traffic lights in a blue Ferrari....."

The one it was aimed at then went into a, mostly one sentence string of posts, over about two pages arguing with ONE other poster, about proving that you do not get blue Ferraris.

Needless to say he was shot down TOTALY. But not before the argument he was loosing, was totally forgotten....by SOME.

ALWAYS keep track, ignore the superfulous, and upset them by coming back at them where they tried to distract you.
