Continued Outrage Over Independence, MO Councilman's 'Middle Easterns' Slur Persists

Man, all these Muslim terrorists living in America are getting lapped over and over in the murder numbers by our very own homegrown crew! Muslims better step up their murder game here in the US. 'Merica!

But the guy is right so what's the problem. Have any of you people pushed back on Ilhan Elmi??? Have you asked your congress man to push back on her??? Just what I thought. This is why Independence is a crap hole and has a bad reputation nation wide. BTW your city market is a joke everyone is laughing about it, and some of what is being sold there is illegal.

This opinion article is based on a blatant lie. The councilman referred to stores “owned by mostly Middle Easterns who will sell anything out the back door.” His reference is to a particular subset of "mostly" Middle Easterners who own particular types of stores.

The columnist, however, ignores that distinction: "His use of the term 'Middle Easterns,' ... specifically attributes criminal activity to ALL MEMBERS OF AN ETHNICITY — a textbook example of racism."

Even apart from the question whether "ethnicity" is "race," the article changes "Mid Easterners-who-own-stores" to "all Mid Easterners." This is a textbook example of intellectual dishonesty.

Of course the Star lets him get away with the ruse. Maybe the editors did not notice the switcheroo, or maybe they don't care whether what they print is true or false, so long as it advances their agenda.

No chuck, as another poster so eloquently(unlike you) stated, you're more likely to be killed by our very own domestic terrorists than a Muslim. Unfortunately, that doesn't fit your tired tripe and clown-show narratives. But why let reality invade your worthless existence...you're so divorced from it anyway.

If the left doesn't understand what is being said they label it as being racist.

If it is a factual statement the left once again while unable to to make a point labels the truth as being racist.

Joe Biden said, "You can't go into a Seven Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.I'm not joking." - Source NBC News, CBS News, C-Span, Time. Where are the cries of racism over that?

I stand behind what my council member says, it’s true and it needed to be said, those people are bringing their attitudes and so called “business practices” that are illegal activities here, not gonna accept it, they need to conform to our laws not theirs

Anybody noticed how there is one set of laws for them and another set for us?

^^No I haven't noticed, but then I don't traffic in stupidly and spend my days watching Faux News like you. I also have an objective mind, unlike you, and am able to think for myself. You cannot. Thus, the ignorant post.

Al Sharpton famously said that Hitler "didn't do the job" on the Jews.

But that's not racist shhhhh

No, you spend every minute of every day here as everyone knows. And we have yet to see any evidence of a 'mind' per se. Just the same shit over and over, parroting people way smarter than you, and a doorknob is smarter than you.

You may sit down.

^^and yet you also seem to spend every minute of every day here if you know he has, as everyone knows. All you seem to do is respond to people who are funnier and smarter than you. You seem really dumb.

You've been dismissed.

Nah. Not even a challenge. Case in point, you quote me because you have no actual thoughts. Were you trying, or...

Anyway, this is your only hobby, and you're really terrible at it. Try Connect Four, there's a game with most of the pieces left in the day room.

Thanks, punching bag!
