When they find whoever did this, the culprits should be either shot or deported!

I think maybe you should follow his suggestions and be quiet. It is not a hate crime, it's vandalism, period. By the way are you still using picture books and that's why you don't want none of them there reading books thrown at you... did you at least have your fake teeth in when you wrote this?
And now your counting my teeth, a little off the subject isn't it!!! No matter what you write about my intelligence or my teeth, this is still a hate crime and by the way my teeth aren't fake are yours?

Probably comitted by the same type of people who have young kids lie down and pretend they are dead to have their outlines drawn by students protesting the war at CU. Scum!
When is it such a crime to protest? By the first amendment we are able to peacefully assemble. Remember those who went to war have more balls and blood than I care to have. I agree, that's a hate crime, yes and there are other and way much more better ways to voice your opinions. However, going about it like this just means that the mentality of these people are less than sub human. In no way am I laughing at this!

A white supremicist who ruled Germany, remember him " Hitler ". He flashed that swastica around like it was his part of his face. He thought his way was the only way. He punished and/or killed anyone who did not believe like him.

Our soldiers are out there fighting for our rights and the RIGHTS OF OTHERS to live in peace, it is for this reason that those swastica swinging lowbrows are up in arms, because we protect ALL people, not just a specified few. THAT makes it a HATE CRIME.

Now all our soldiers that have DIED FOR US are in those cemetaries, and do not deserve to be disrespected like that.

And to all those "specified few" who wave around an old worn out issue such as a way to put others down or in there place. I do not respect you, your beliefs or your right to have any rights !

So Shove it where the sun will never shine,( "your brain" ) and welcome to the 21st. century.

What these punks did, to the graves of our beloved fallen national hero's, is completely without merit and to defend any acts associated with them truly means you hate America.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
AND ALL OUR TROOPS
So am I going to be poked with a spear or bow and arrow? True Blooded American in my eyes is a Native American, are you a Native American?

The United States was not built by the native americans. Maybe they occupied the land, but they are not the founders of what makes all Americans proud. Besides, these "Native Americans" as you call them were not the first. They walked here from Rio and took over

Why do people have to make every statement or phrase into a racial attack. Native means born in a place. Get over it. This forum is about the horrible actions of a few lewd people who don't respect our nation and therefore do not deserve to be granted the rights we bestow on our citizens. Those soldiers put their lives on the line for our rights (no matter what race , ethnicity, or otherwise) and the rights of others. They don't deserve to be slandered in this way.

Well I might be able to see your point had you not used that useless human being (bush) as an example. The only thing he is good for is leaving at this point.

But, to put swasticas on our dead soldiers is a Hate Crime, and vandalism. And most disrespectful.

As far as people not deserving rights, well that's my personal opinion, and I doubt it will ever go anywhere because everyone has rights even though I may believe differently. But it is also my right to not have any feeling for someone or something that I think is wrong, morally or not. Because you see, I do not believe that white supremicists are human beings, they are not worthy of my time and I care not what happens to them.

But I do get your point.

So, we should inflict vigilante violence on these folks just because they did something that we do not like. Sounds as if their accusations may not be far from wrong. Your reply indicates that you are willing to inflict extra-legal "justice" in the form of torture and you are sure that the military personnel would be willing to do it.
Sounds like you would be right at home in 1940s Germany wearing a swastika. Your reaction is stupid. It makes me suspect that you may be stupid too.
Please, pull your head out of your posterior. It is very unbecoming.

I believe she was just making a point.

As Americans, we are allowed our own opinion, and we can speak our own opinion, hopefully in a appropriate surrounding.

To behave in this manner as these punks did is disrespectful and insulting.

-----the imitation NAZIS are at work in anger and frustration--burning flags and grave sites-- in response to the President's allowing the free and easy border crossings of many-many illegal aliens:--and those that are marching and demanding rights and privileges and welfare--RIGHT NOW !!--Think about it.----You are as the true Americans among us--ready to protect and defend our families and country at all costs---.. So then--what anger and response are you harboring---waiting--expecting to be drastically injured by some illegal alien taking and harming as it wants:--sanctioned by "Our
--Government" ?? Is it LAW yet ???

I believe I didn't ask you. And no, it is not the same thing. Yes, this is America, and we are allowed our own opinions. Don't like homosexuals? THEN DON'T BE GAY... But keep your opinions and your religious B.S. out of the lives of other Americans.

You still seem to miss the point. Sorry to hear you're obviously very frustrated over her choice of examples. Too close to home?

The point AGAIN....Americans can express their own opinions!!!!! We do not need to infringe on other people's rights to express themselves.

BTY...public forums...are...ummmmmm public!!
