In Ignorant News: GOP Audience Boos A Soldier in Iraq & Ann Coulter Gives Her Take on the Execution of Troy Davis
I don’t know about you guys, but I am sooooo tired of the ignorance when it comes to a particular group of people. It’s gotten quite old, yet things seem as if they won’t be letting up anytime soon. Two things that recently caught my eye were of 1. an american soldier being booed at a GOP debate solely because he was gay, and 2. Ann Coulter’s opinion on the recent execution of Troy Davis in Georgia. Disgusting!!!
Seems that during last nights GOP Debate (that I missed) the audience decided to boo an active military serviceman because of his sexual orientation. This comes just a couple of weeks after another GOP debate audience cheerfully applauded in approval Texa’s Gov. Rick Perry’s large number of executions.
Check out the video of “that” hot mess after the break.
Meanwhile, after author Ann Coulter made discusting comments on Twitter (which you can check out here) about deathrow inmate Troy Davis’ then upcoming death – and yes I say discusting since I am against the death penalty – she also took to her blog to voice her opinion on the whole matter.
Here’s just a taste of what she said:
It’s nearly impossible to receive a death sentence these days — unless you do something completely crazy like shoot a cop in full view of dozens of witnesses in a Burger King parking lot, only a few hours after shooting at a passing car while exiting a party. That’s what Troy Davis did in August 1989. Davis is the media’s current baby seal of death row.
After a two-week trial with 34 witnesses for the state and six witnesses for the defense, the jury of seven blacks and five whites took less than two hours to convict Davis of Officer Mark MacPhail’s murder, as well as various other crimes. Two days later, the jury sentenced Davis to death.
Now the media claim that seven of the nine witnesses against Davis at trial have recanted. First of all, the state presented 34 witnesses against Davis — not nine — which should give you some idea of how punctilious the media are about their facts in death penalty cases. [Read more here.]
Now, All I have to say is that my stomach has turned enough these last few weeks…. Im so glad it’s friday ya’ll. *rolls eyes*
