The editor of a small-town Alabama newspaper published an editorial calling for “the Ku Klux Klan to night ride again” against “Democrats in the Republican Party and Democrats [who] are plotting to raise taxes in Alabama.”
Goodloe Sutton — who is the publisher of the Democrat-Reporter newspaper in Linden, Alabama — confirmed to the Montgomery Advertiser on Monday that he authored the Feb. 14 editorial calling for the return of a white supremacist hate group.​

We don't need hate speech laws, we need enforcement of the laws.

Those that committed the lynchings should receive a trial and sentenced to hang if they are proven guilty.

Writing for a unanimous Court, Justice Frank Murphy upheld Chaplinksy’s conviction. The Court identified certain categorical exceptions to First Amendment protections, including obscenities, certain profane and slanderous speech, and "fighting words." He found that Chaplinsky's insults were “fighting words” since they caused a direct harm to their target and could be construed to advocate an immediate breach of the peace. Thus, they lacked the social value of disseminating ideas to the public that lay behind the rights granted by the First Amendment. A state can use its police power, the Court reasoned, to curb their expression in the interests of maintaining order and morality. {{meta.pageTitle}}

The only thing good about Alabama is I-20 to get the fuck out.

edit: An Alabamian poured tree killer on a sacred grove of trees at the University of Alabama and the trees died.

Anniston Army Depot brings back fond memories. I know you have heard of the Hellfire Missile. Marine Corps Logistics Base, Albany, Georgia also brings back fond memories.

edit: Both wanted to hire me but said I signed a Not To Compete which has no legal obligation but is a moral duty. When I got out of the Navy, The Shah of Persia wanted to hire me, cheese and rice!
