Pamela Powers Hannley, a progressive voice for Arizona
[Picture me wagging my finger in a motherly fashion.]
I am hereby warning hate-mongers and bullies that I will no longer tolerate name-calling and grade-school bullying in my comments’ section. What brought me to this decision was the numerous posts by two individuals who have repeatedly attacked one individual– calling him a liar, a bastard, a racist, a scum sucker, etc.– you get the idea.
I don’t care if you agree with my viewpoints or not. (In fact, some of your posts are so absurd that you brighten my day with laughter– seriously, thanks!) I grew up arguing politics with my union-organizer Dad and my FDR-devotee Grandparents. Politics, activism, and political discourse are family sports for the Irish. With our political opinions, we’re like a dog with a bone, so it you have an opinion to discuss or wrangle over– bring it on.
My point is not suppression of thought but suppression of hate. So, be forewarned, if your post consists solely of name-calling and/or put-downs with no facts or intelligent discourse to back up the accusations, I will delete it.
