Re: “Burlington City Councilor Accuses Other Members of Racism

Old white Petrarca is a parody of himself and he doesnt even know it.

In the name of anti-racism, he should be out there now painting all the white sidewalks in Burlington black! Why are sidewalks white?! Who said concrete should be white?! White sidewalks are proof that Mayor Weinberger is racist!

OMG, why does the Mayors office order WHITE paper for writing and printing at City Hall?! Thats so racist! In solidarity, Burlington should be using only black paper!

Why does the City allow anything to be white?! The police cars shouldnt be black and white! They should just be black! Or Hispanic! Having any white on a police car is racist!

Why does the city allow any houses to be painted white?! Why do we allow the municipal parking garages to be made of white concrete?! Why do we allow City Market to sell white bread and white sugar and white flour and vanilla ice cream and white cottage cheese and white yogurt?!

Please go find a white public toilet to clog as a protest.

Re: “Church Street Mural Vandalism Suspect Avoids Criminal Charges

For the record, many people consider the never-ending we-know-better-than-the-rest-of-you acts of self righteousness by a handful of sad old white hippies in Burlington to be a serious offense against our community.

Re: “Vallee Accuses Sanders of Seeking Legal Retribution 'To Make a Point'

"Sounds like Vallee is taking a page out of the Trump collusion playbook."

No, I'd say an elected official who's on the public payroll and who says "File a lawsuit [against a political rival]just to make a point," is misusing the court system, misusing his office, and misusing the public payroll, i.e., is the one who's taking a page out of the Trump collusion playbook.

Re: “Church Street Mural Vandalism Suspect Avoids Criminal Charges

"No one is surprised that liberals allow liberals to walk free, when they should be facing the consequences of their actions. We can expect more of the same when self-entitled liberal prosecutors continue to slap these liberal miscreants on the wrist, and in doing so, only enable more of their deplorable behavior."

I agree with you that this self-entitled LEFT wing "activist" should receive more than a slap on the wrist. Do you likewise agree that RIGHT wing criminals should also "face the consequences of their actions"? Like, oh, say, rich guys who pay off women to keep silent about extramarital affairs just before an election?

Re: “Jared Carter to Run for Burlington City Council Seat

Why vote? Lets just ask Ali Dieng if he thinks Carter is a racist. Dieng can tweet his answer and it will be final. If yes, the Burlington Politburo will not give comrade Carter permission to run. Instead, he will be assigned to think about his crimes against the people while cleaning the bathrooms at Party headquarters.

Re: “Burlington City Councilor Accuses Other Members of Racism

Gee. Maybe 6 councilors didn't support this proposal because they didn't like it on its merits. Calling people racists because you didn't get your way on an issue that has absolutely nothing to do with race, is shameful.

And someone from Mr. Petrarca's family needs to take him home and make him comfortable and tell him that he's the President and here's a cookie and 'night night.

Re: “Five-Story Hotel Proposed for Williston Road in South Burlington

"Another sterile looking monument to the failure of capitalism and Neo-liberal economics."

According to some people, capitalism has been "failing" for centuries. Karl Marx predicted its imminent doom over 150 years ago. I don't think it cares what Marx thought or NorthOldEnder thinks.
