Hark! More fine examples of racist comments in the News-Times for me to hand over to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
...Danbury's xenophobia up close in personal.
Immigrants are ANIMALS. And they STINK. We need to start lynching them just like we did to the coons back in the day. That'll teach these dirty munkeys to stay out of Connecticut.
Naygers are dirty animals. Don't be so naieve.
Black people stink.
...and the hits keep coming, complete with praise from other readers!
Thanks Mayor Boughton for ripping this once fine city apart (and ducking all responsibility)!
As I stated several times, at some point the News-Times needs to take responsibility in regards to these disgusting statements and change the way in which they allow people to comment in the site. A simple modification to the topix service in which a individual is required to sign up with a real name as well as a verifiable email address would go a long way in running the scum back into the sewer where they belong.
This issue with the newspaper has gone on for too long and sooner or later the News-Times will be faced with a very large, well organized PR campaign/boycott against them and their online advertisers...which is long overdue.
UPDATE 11.18.08: Forgot to add this gem...and the individual who posted this crap used the name of a News-Times reporter.
(h/t to my readers who are monitor this garbage so I don't have to).
