The Duck as usual gets the story from Nigeria wrong. He points to the use of government force against a Muslim sect and gets the wrong message. Governments need to ensure the safety of its citizenry especially in a country with tribal and religious strife like Nigeria. One group's behavior threatened the stability of the country and the government took appropriate actions. It did not target every Mosque, just the ones affiliated with a sect responsible for the criminal riots.
The Editrix is largely correct in her comments. CM provides some history on the other aspects not observed by me. A community is a reflection of the people in the community. In our community the Duck states his views but there is a level of behavior that all understand. The Duck disagrees with around 99% of what I write. However, his contributions keep me sharp and this would be a boring place if we all agreed. The Duck and I have an odd friendship that has gone on since 2004.It is funny that when I do a radio interview the subject of the Duck comes up in passing.
This site is in no description anti Yeagley. I do understand he has upset some friends. We also have people who do post here who are not upset, but left for various reasons. I wish his site would return to the era where ideas and history were discussed. A certain person has never contributed to the intelectual debate on that site. Her role seems to be to make the Dr look ridiculous by fostering an attmosphere that at times resembles a hate site.
I also want to contrast the examples of some Conservatives and BE. When we read a Mr Beamish or AOW they are not fans of Obama. However, they discuss eroneous policies sans any talk of race. The issue of Obama is his dreadful plans to send the country in the wrong direction.
As a conservative it is illogical to attack a person's heritage as we discuss ideas and celebrate individualism. Blacks are part of the American family and they serve with distinction in all capacities. We do not attack family members for being different here, we note our differences state our opposition to the ideas and not the persons community. Ultimately the ideas are more important than Obama the person.
