Deaths of evil people get celebrated all the time.

Hitler, Saddam, Bin Laden, this a-hole, and eventually the orange guy.

or we can choose virtue over the contemptible act of celebrating death

with what're called ... the three most powerful words in the English language ...

the teaching of prophets and GODs ...

Or not. :lol:

F this guy; glad he's dead. 8)

I don't really understand why liberals oppose the idea of racial separation so much. I meant they are always complaining about how this or that institution is "too white", and how white people are constantly oppressing people of color with their "privilege" and "microaggressions". Wouldn't racial separation solve all that?

No, because separate has time and time again proven to not be equal. A much better goal is for whites, or any dominant group, to learn tolerance. Especially in a country like America, where where we pride ourselves on the ideals of equality and liberty for all citizens - - even if we haven't always practiced it.

How popular it would be to have a new department of racial purity in the government, Ever think about these things before you propose them.

The Nazis called that the Office of Racial Hygiene, headed up by Rudolph Hess.

Frankly nobody is celebrating, he's dead, deal with it.

Gloating?

"Gloating" is an English word of similar meaning, where "gloat" means "to observe or think about something with triumphant and often malicious satisfaction, gratification, or delight" (e.g., to gloat over an enemy's misfortune)".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schadenfreude

Nobody is doing either.


I never before even heard of the guy.

The purpose of the thread is to inform us that ..."here is an interesting guy you prolly never heard of. Well he just passed away. He was a notable personage. Like Ron Popeel, or like John Prine. But unlike those two (notable for neutral or positive reasons) he was notable for a negative reason".

How are we supposed to react? Bury our heads in our pillows and cry about it?

We had our own in Australian in the immigration department during the "white Australia policy". The officers would do literally the same colour and skull tests the Nazis conducted to decide whether a immigrant wasn't European enough.

Yes, a hero to white supremacists died. What about their feelings?

Various American states had such evil policies.

Yes sometimes siblings from the same family were split where one sibling was deemed white and the other was tossed back on the boat to sail back.

:( That's why we shouldn't separate the races, because one will be perceived to be of more worth than the other.

It's certainly going to be an uphill battle

The very first post is "Good Riddance".

Everyone has negatives.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg the most biased SCOTUS judge died, and many on the right were cheering, GOOD RIDDANCE to such a biased judge, and YES to Trump getting another SCOTUS pick, however, that would be *gloating*, so decent people knew to keep silent about such things.

Here though .. Koch, Rumsfeld, Limbaugh, and this obituary topic, we see the perversion of being quite celebratory of another's death.

One was a righteous Supreme Court Justice, the others were various dirtbags who treated people awfully. Do you not see the difference? :?
