It is good to know that someone has something nice to say. I wanted to share something with you in return. I can tell you are a mother.

This is a beautiful poem about Dylan Thomas' father on his deathbed...
Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night
Dylan Thomas
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

"by Phoebe Weatherfield for Phoebe Weatherfield" says a lot. Why give it prominence at Daily Kos?

This is maudlin crap designed to elicit racist reactions amongst Black people. It is more likely than not, that Blacks murdered this young man. The real racism in Georgia and the Carolinas comes from Blacks, who are viciously and mindlessly attacking White people for no reason. Rapes and murders by Blacks in those States is pandemic. Here in Louisville, KY, a mob of Blacks 200 strong rioted and caused injuries. Black gangs are now using eight year olds to commit horrible crimes, like randomly bashing a White woman in the face with a brick. The media is suppressing the real information about racial crimes, because they are almost always Black on White. The number of them is appalling and worthy of concern. Black on Black violence is also disproportionate to anyone else in America.

The problem of Black racism is severe. It is so severe, one wonders why the Black communities and leadership won't do something about it, talk about it, give their youth a better direction.

Dear Phoebe Weatherfirled,

I am sorry you are filled with so many conspiracy theories with so little credible evidence to back them up.

I am sorry that you learned neither the lessons of the Trayvon or the Duke rape cases.

I am sorry that speculation and jumping to conclusions that fit the narrative are more important than facts and truth in your world.

I am sorry that you are more than willing to accuse so many people of so many horrible acts just to get hits on your pathetic website.....

Learned her lesson on the Trayvon or duke rape cases? What lesson is that exactly?

Since neither case is remotely similar to each other or this one, I can only imagine that the "lesson" has something to do with the poster thinking blacks are subhuman and deserve to die.

Someone comes on to post a heartfelt message about a child dying, and, corny or not, the last thing you'd expect is a load of racist trash in response.
The Outhousers manage to shock yet again, with their supremely low, scum-of-the-earth spew.

Don't jump on the bandwagon before you know all of the evidence.

Once evidence disproves your speculation, don't double down in hopes of saving the narrative.

Simple concepts, actually.......

Umm no, it was a message full of unfounded accusations and conspiracy theories without a shred of evidence to back anything up........

I don't have a website, that was pretty comical to accuse me of wanting people to visit it though. I meant every word of that piece. I didn't accuse anyone publicly, so don't worry about me... The federal prosecutor of the Middle District of Georgia is doing that work for us ;)

To shut up crybabies like you, who speculate without any credible evidence to back it up........wasting precious tax dollars to likely come to the same conclusion as the initial investigation.....

I'm sure you did, for the narrative is more important than actual evidence, no?

When the federal prosecutor comes back with the same conclusion as before will you also accuse them of being comfortable with racism and corruption?

Will you still insist it's murder?

Of course you will........

I have faith in Michael Moore. If he comes back and says it was an accident and he found no corruption/evidence of murder than I will be done with this case. If he comes back and says there was corruption, a cover up and a murder, what will you do, boo ya?

You're a racist, hateful POS who has no business commenting here at all. Go away.
That's so unfair. The rise in Black on White rapes, murders, knockout attacks speak for the total inattention Black leadership, even the President, has given their own youth. There has been an explosion of opportunity for Blacks over the last forty years. Yet, now there is an explosion of Black on White violence for no reason whatsoever. If the Black community can't raise their children to be good citizens, their children will continue this violence for no reason and will end up dead.

Phoebe Weatherfield's emotional disregard of available information isn't enough reason for Daily Kos to try to inflame racial hatred amongst Blacks yet again.
