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.

Re: “Madaila Band Member Charged With Defacing Burlington Mural

No, its not just this one misguided politically correct fool. Both the Left AND the Right dont want to hear anyone elses opinions.

America needs to reject extremism on BOTH sides. People need to recognize when theyre being self righteous and intolerant in the name of their political briefs. We must reject running over anti-Nazi protesters. And likewise we must reject pulling flags out of the ground at Middlebury. We must reject not letting speakers speak! And we must reject a Presidents constant attacks on the free press. We must go back to a time when all Americans recognized and understood and agreed that you cant take the law into your own hands because you think youre right.

Re: “Madaila Band Member Charged With Defacing Burlington Mural

No, Cashman does NOT miss your misguided point.

We're talking about a handful of self-righteous bratty adult children who make a questionable claim that a mural depicts "white supremacy." And when they don't get their way immediately, they think it's ok to take matters into their own hands and destroy public property.

Re: “Madaila Band Member Charged With Defacing Burlington Mural

" . . . crimes against Native Americans and people of color represented by the parade of white privilege depicted in the mural."

Oh for god's sake. Get over yourselves. Abenaki Chief Don Stevens condemned this stupid act. In vandalizing public property you act for no one but your self-righteous selves.
