Kudos for Lars for having the guts to roll out the "i'm descriminated against, I'm a white male" warhorse. Nothing else he does deserves credit, but at least he's got the chutzpah to look like a putz and do it with a straight face.

You say it was organized by the same intellectual gnats that demonstrated against their own tax cut? I though this was something to be actually WORRIED about.

I am impressed with the overall objective tone of this piece...until the last paragraph. Still, good job.

Actually, the LAST paragraph nailed it! That's how anti-choice christian terrorist Scott Roeder started out. Just as his ex-wife said, "It started with all this anti-tax stuff".

I know one thing, as a Black man, i certainly wouldn't feel very safe attending a summit like that.

Indeed. You would have been on your own, as far as I remember.

Here's the Medford Mail Tribune's take on the event:

From the link Matt Posted: "Critical services to the elderly and the disabled are on the block."

There we go, let the old anti-government crowd cut their own life support. Everyone wins.

And everyone loses. Nothing changes with these folks.

As a conservative reading an independent publication that tends to be, shall we say, left of center, I'm impressed that we've got you guys worried.

"I know one thing, as a Black man, i certainly wouldn't feel very safe attending a summit like that."

What does that even mean? Dude, do you even know any conservative or libertarian people? That's kind of sad if you screen your friends based on their political beliefs and hence have stereotypes about what people interested in limited government think. Doesn't sound like the words of an "open-minded" liberal.

Or, if you really want to see what a racist country looks like, I suggest you take a vacation in Russia or Eastern Europe and report back.

What does Ruder have to do with these guys? I appreciate you letting them make themselves look bad with their own words. Ominously connecting them with a violent nut is just what they'd do, though. Shitty work for a leftist. Makes us look bad.

In responses to DamosA, You would have been perfectly safe to attend this summit. This "am black and wouldn’t feel safe" is getting old.
