SeattleCattle, Enatai, KeepSeattleHostile,

You are each presumptuous, groupthink whiners that are much more entitled than any "tech bro" I've ever come across. "My city!" "Real Seattlites!" sounds more than a little bit like "real patriot!" and "I want my country back!" that tea bagger types have spewed for years. So much easier to blame others for your position in Seattle's ever-changing economy. You were not guaranteed cheap housing in a booming metro area because you were born in Seattle or you moved here in the 90s. KeepSeattleHostile's post was especially hilarious - a waitress that believes she deserves affordable housing on the Hill. It is HER city, afterall!

Ever notice how often Darwinists suddenly stop believing in survival of the fittest when it applies to them?

N8,
Mara Willaford's mannerisms in particular were brutish and "physical" throughout. Sticking your finger in someone's face, shoulder bumping, blocking another's path is street playbook for starting a fight. Any seven year old knows this. Either you don't get out much or you are being willfully ignorant due to your bias. Besides the physical aggression, saying things like "come on!" and "we'll burn this down" are not just "rude". Those are called threats.

It is funny how many are criticizing the crowd for just sitting there and allowing the girls to take over the event. "White liberal pussies!" "Typical passive/aggressive Seattle!". Yet here you are whining that one "heckler" may have hurt the girls' feelings by threatening to kick their asses off the stage.

"many in attendance heckled her and yelled for her to be tazed."

Awesome double standard. No need to waste more time addressing your numerous false assumptions (again) when your position is this biased. Funny how you do not even address the constant finger in the face, screaming and chest bumping. The girls were disrespectful throughout and straight up threatening at other points. But they shouldn't be "heckled". Goodnight.

N8,
"but first learning about what you're talking before weighing-in leads to a much richer discussion. Saying you're too busy to even try to understand the intent of their action, though you do have time to read the Slog and comments, then post on the subject yourself multiple times - hopefully you can reprioritize."

I was at the rally. I've read the girls' subsequent interviews and social media posts. Does that qualify me to comment on the subject, Mr. Aribratator? Please englighen.

Like most, I have my own life and challenges. I know that you, Johnson and her ilk do not care or cannot imagine what those challenges may be, that we should all carve out more space in our lives to dedicate to someone that labels people "white supremist" without ever speaking to any of them. Yet it is me that should "learn what I'm talking about". Wow.

N8,
None of us are under any obligation to "try to understand what she really means". Most of us have busy lives with varying degrees of difficulties, be it economic or health related. These girls do not deserve any more respect or understanding than anyone else. So quit it with the White Knight bullshit. Both girls shit all over Sanders and the organizers of the event. As many have pointed out, an event specifically about Social Security and Medicare. Two programs that essential to many of us, regardless of race. Johnson and her screaming halfwit partner know nothing about Sanders' ideology or background. "Bow down"? Only a megalomaniac nut job would ever utter those words.

"Then do something about it, rather than complaining on the internet about the tactics of those that are."

SamN, you are just another presumptuous, sanctimonious fuck. How do you know what GrumpyShoe or anyone else in this anonymous forum is "doing about it?" What are you "doing about it"? Details, please.

These girls (and I say "girls" because they are children) don't know me, they don't know you. Nor do they care to. These loving Christians only care about their own "cause" and anyone who doesn't agree in lock step is the enemy and does not deserve respect. Raised by Tea Partiers. Yeah, I'm sure that didn't shape the "me only, screw everyone else" attitude.

Invading someone's space, sticking your finger in their face, bumping them, screaming insults. I'm sure their lord and savior Jesus would be proud.

Yet it was the crowd that behaved in an "ugly" manner according to some.

"I would say that anybody who hears me say that, and thinks about their feelings first, is a white supremacist."

There you have it. Narcissist, childish clown.

#56, no, what makes you and Dan a twat is your need to comment on it. Get the difference? No one really cares that the outpouring of grief (or whatever it is) over RW is baffling to you. People like you and Dan believe they should have an opinion and be heard on every subject.

An apt comparison would be if David Sedaris died and blockhead fratboy types just had to let everyone know how unaffected they were by his passing. "Why are so many people upset by this guy's death, he was just a pussy little author, amrite? Come on dudes, whose with me?" It is an immature, douchey impulse.

Dan, thanks for reminding me what an asshole you can be. It is perfectly fine not to feel bad about RW's passing, but why the need to assert yourself at all in a situation that does not resonate with you? I guess not feeling like the center of attention or the one driving the conversation for even a minute is somehow a threat to you. Narcissm at its finest.
