The Roots of Ethnic Violence

Original post made by Anonymous, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on May 12, 2007

Ethnic cleansing is almost never spontaneous but begins by demonizing another group, such as gays, liberals, arabs. The hate speech from right wing commentators such as Ann Coulter should not have sponsors even if it must be tolerated.

The link you provided can be opened by the source's subscribers. Was it in reference to a particular Coulter article?

Add to the list of demonized: white men, capitalists, big-businesses,oil companies, the military, republicans, right wingers, straights, stay-at-home moms, Christians, Jews, ...

shall I go on?

NO..I will not tolerate any attempt to let ANYONE determine who should and should not have sponsors or who has the right to give an opinion, even if it is against "my group".

It is an absolute right,the right to freedom of speech.

Someone has no idea what ethnic cleansing is. Killing their leaders and converting the people to Christianity sounds more like salvation than cleansing.
