Re: “A Little Late To the 'Patriotically Correct' Party

It is not correct to say that Trump is a white supremacist because it is simply a thing that is not true and there is no evidence to support it. It is irrelevant whether some of the people who supported Trump are themselves racist assholes. I am sure there are some racist assholes who enjoy ice cream but I'm not going to stop eating ice cream in some brain damage delusion that it is racist somehow. So the backlash against the woman who said that Trump is a white supremacist is totally warranted and doesn't actually go far enough because she still has a job and you cannot be allowed to get away with committing slander or libel against people. Whether or not somebody is a white supremacist is not an opinion. Just like it is not an opinion whether stop signs are red or not. Either you are or you are not.

The backlash against the Dixie Chicks was unwarranted. That was one singer expressing her legitimate opinion. Whether or not you agree with that opinion, she is still entitled to have that opinion. It would be wonderful if media and the far left and right wings could ever grasp the difference between a fact and an opinion. Unfortunately critical thinking is no longer taught.

Re: “Fighting Abuse

Emerge is one of the most hateful organizations out there. Not only do they deny the existence of the majority of male victims of domestic violence but when a male victim is referred to their services they treat him as though he is a perpetrator.

There is nothing like seeking help from a place like Emerge as a victim and still in pain from your injuries, and being treated as though you are perpetrator. The representative from emerge outright lies because Centers for Disease Control studies prove that men are a large percentage of victims. Women are actually more likely to initiate domestic violence and more likely to use a weapon. Yet they make up only 3% of domestic violence convictions.

The author clearly has a large store of hatred towards male victims that she would deny the existence of most of them. The fact that she is either too dishonest or too incompetent to report factually on this subject when the facts are so easily obtained shows that she should not have a job with Tucson Weekly. I guess if you have the correct politics Tucson Weekly is perfectly willing to ignore a lot of flaws in your character and ability.

Re: “Demand Letter

These are special snowflake social justice "warriors" who find EVERYTHING sexist, EVERYTHING flavor-of-the-day-phobic, EVERYTHING racist, when it is not. This is the most priviledged generation, and still not happy. If these special snowflakes can't handle such a safe learning environment as the UofA (which is EXTREMELY easy on these kids), then they are not capable of benefiting from university education and need to get fast food jobs. Kat Hermanson needs to stop taking up space at the UofA that a student capable of learning, with an open mind, could constructively use.
FYI homophobia ACTUALLY means fear of that which is the same as yourself. Stop using it wrong special snowflakes.

Re: “Divided

Tucson city council ALWAYS rubber-stamps what developers wants, even if it's to give away traffic bearing streets, like they did to 5th avenue so "the district" apartments could be built. It's insane how stupid and greedy these people are.
Fry's doesn't need a new location there on houghton! They already have a store on the next major street west, 22nd and Harrison!

Re: “Deported Father

Cesar IS a criminal who came here illegally and never took the effort to become legal IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT HE HAD 13 YEARS TO DO SO! All he ever had to do was go back across the border to Mexico, fill out the paperwork like he never left, and wait his turn like the millions who have come here legally before him.

This man is the victim of his own choices, and his son pays the price of his laziness and selfishness. He's a terrible father because he never did what he needed to do to ensure that he wouldn't be separated from his family.

I repeat, the only thing that this man is the victim of, is his own choices.

Re: “Solution Wanted

Having a sex change operation is elective and cosmetic surgery. After care is thus, equally elective. Tax dollars should never pay for someone else's CHOICE. It's not discrimination to claim that not covering an elective procedure and the associated after care shouldn't be covered. It IS unfair to make taxpayers, you and I, foot the bill. Check your priviledge.

Re: “Should People Be Upset by a Burrito Joint Called "Illegal Pete's"?

I like how all the jobless jerkwads are disliking EVERY logical post that supports Illegal Pete's. BTW I took my friends there last night simply because of the protestors, our bill was nearly $100 because we were a large group. The place is great and the employees were awesome! The protesters were jackass bullies though, and I really was wishing the cops would actually do their job and move them from obstructing access. TPD, why wouldn't you do your jobs? This is harassment under state law.
