Feeling the hate

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.


Ray Sissum

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).

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
