Topic: Calls for the Ku Klux Klan to 'night ride again'

The editor of a newspaper in Alabama wrote an editorial that called for the Ku Klux Klan "to night ride again" against Democrats who "are plotting to raise taxes" in the state. Several respected news sources are carrying this story. This from the NBC. Is there no end to this return to extremism? Or was it just hidden under the surface of the racist bigots?

Lynch people because of taxes. Editor's name is Goodloe Sutton. Not much "good" about him. Twitter will do its thing.


"We'll get the hemp ropes out, loop them over a tall limb and hang all of them," Sutton said."


Just hidden, I guess, Towan.

Thanks, Bob. Those videos give even more background than the one I saw.

600-800 km on a tank, 15 min to fill up, 140 km an hour, more expensive to buy but cheaper than diesel to run.

I already see cartoons and news items showing negativity towards the Green Plan in the US.

Hi Proggy.

Germany just launched the world's first hydrogen-powered train. It emits nothing but water and steam! Wish I could have copied the video.

And apparently Sussex in the UK is waiting on a fleet of hydrogen powered buses.

We do have the means - just need the political will.

As for the US, the world has pretty much written it off as world leader. And it is not just Trump, although he exposed the underbelly, but with all the information disclosed recently about how the government is actually run, and what at least 1/3 of the population believe and are like, it will take a long time for the US to get back a decent reputation. If ever. Money is the problem in many ways. Isn't it always?

Europe has become the world leader now! And we do need sensible leaders in this day and age.

Edited : Just saw your history of the plan. I don't know the names but assume they were Green Party? Maybe if the Dems run with it they'll at least get a little further?

"Green New Deal" links climate change with poverty/income inequality that holds back economies. By linking them, it is hoped to strengthen the efforts made to change them, trying to solve both crises at the same time. The movement started in the US but is moving to Canada and Europe.

Although it would cost trillions of dollars spread out over decades, that money has to be spent anyhow, and it would ultimately be self-financing. For full story see this link.

I understand the movement is receiving criticism in the US?
