Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Troll

A CNBC article reported that Apple removed most of his podcasts because of hate speech. Facebook removed pages due to "...using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies." Supporters cry out that this is the slippery slope of censorship of opposing voices. However, Free Speech is not absolute. Inciting violence against a religion, race, or group is a crime and not Free Speech.

Kathy S.,
If one scans higher up (just below TUCSON WEEKLY) the highlighted red byline clearly states NEWS & OPINION. Obviously you fool easily.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: The Accomplice

Yes, the shooter had a long standing beef with the paper but hadn't acted on it until after tRump verbally demonized reporters. You don't know for a fact that his words didn't tip the scales and incite this deranged individual to proceed with an attack on the paper, (while on the other side of the coin we can't say definitely it did). But what kind of a "leader" incites violence against others in the first place?! And what kind of a person (such as yourself) thinks this is OK?

Re: “Letter to the Editor: Proposed 20-Story Tower at Speedway and Campbell "Symbolizes Total Power"

I can say through personal experience that Steve K. (and staff) has been very responsive to issues in my neighborhood and why I have voted for him and would re-elect him. THAT'S why he's a councilman.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: American Beaches

While acknowledging the step forward in better relations with North Korea, it's important to point out that there is no actual "deal". We have vague promises to work toward something.

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: It's Getting Real

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If weve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. Were no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. Its simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that weve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back. (Quote attributed to Carl Sagan).

Re: “A Look Back At the N.R.A

Pointing out that those of us who are supportive of banning assault type weapons and large capacity magazines have an example that supports our position. The damage inflicted by a 9mm hand gun with a normal magazine was minimal...three wounded and self inflicted death of the shooter. Had an assault rifle been used, the carnage in that scenario likely would have been another blood bath. We understand that banning these weapons won't stop the crazies. But this shows the destruction can be drastically limited.
