BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A Boise State University running back who scored the winning points in the Fiesta Bowl, then proposed to his cheerleader girlfriend on national television, has hired security for his weekend wedding because of racial threats, a newspaper reported Tuesday.

Ian Johnson, who is black, and his fiance, Chrissy Popadics, who is white, are due to be married Saturday in Boise.

Johnson, who will be a junior this fall, proposed to Popadics, at the time a Broncos cheerleader, on the field after time expired in the game in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Since then, Johnson said he’s received phone calls, 30 letters and, in some instances, personal threats from people who objected to his plans to marry Popadics.

I may be overly sensitive to this kind of troglodyte behavior and, if that’s the case, I have only one thing to say: BITE ME, CUMNOZZLES.

It really, really pisses me off that I have to tolerate sharing perfectly good oxygen with creatures as utterly useless as that; racist throwbacks to the earliest state of evolution who ought to be beaten and shot for the amusement of the rest of us. I mean, have we achieved nothing over the last, I don’t know, 140 years or so?

What the fuck business is it of yours, you knuckledragging, sister-humping rejects? Listen, I realize that seeing somebody else find what you’ll never find must be infuriating to you, seeing as how your only intimate dates ever have been with Rosie Palm and her Five Sisters, but that’s how it works. Some genes just aren’t worth passing on, and nature sees to it that they won’t be. Sucks to be you, I know, but kindly keep your misery to yourselves or you’ll find that there are more than just a few of us who’d like to multiply your pain beyond levels that you can possibly enjoy.

As a matter of fact, were I living in Boise, I’d be only too happy to volunteer, free of charge, for the security detail. It ought to be fun, particularly if the cowardly scum harassing those two innocent kids were to find the courage (and stupidity) to show up. I’d even bring my own 9mm, 7.62mm and .45 Brand Bleach™ and I wouldn’t charge a dime for that either. I’d consider it an honor to clean out some of the sludge stinking up the Gene Pool.

Instead of being utter assholes about something as completely irrelevant as skin color, you should congratulate the happy young couple. But, then again, lonely, miserable, worthless losers like you have a really hard time watching other people have what you’ll never have, don’t you?

Again: Sucks to be you.

Don’t make it suck any more. Really. You wouldn’t like it. Not one little bit.

But I would.

Front sight… Squeeze… Front sight… Squeeze…

    Idaho, huh? Go figure. That is Bush country, and SOLID Republican (69%). I think the only other state that beat Idaho was Utah (71%). As a comparison, Texas came in at (61%). It’s home to a large contingent of NeoNazis, white supremists, and Mark Furman.

    The only part of the state that could even be considered “liberal” is Moscow — a college town seven miles from Pullman, WA.

    Is there a correllation here? Yes, to some extent. The state is full of ultra-Right wingers — most people on this site would be considered only slightly of Marx.

    How do I know so much about the makeup of Idaho? At one time in my long life, I worked at a couple of radio stations in Northern Idaho.

    In-f’ing-deed.

    Johnson said he’s received phone calls, 30 letters and, in some instances, personal threats from people who objected to his plans to marry Popadics.

    On the brighter side, 30+ people out of a nation of 300,000,000 ain’t too shabby. Thirty nasty letters from a viewership of how many people that watched that game? Pulease.

    When I propose to a broad, I’m gunna do it right here. And she better have a dowry.

    As a Mysogynist level member of W.H.O.A., I find the proposal on nation wide television appalling, but we still do have free will, no?

    Now that I’m done wondering what the heck that has to do with anything (unless you’re trying to politicize a clearly apolitical issue, something that I’m sure you’d never do), I’d like to point out that the pinheaded Nazi fucks aren’t all that likely to be very much in love with Jorge “Open Borders” Arbusto.

    But most importantly: Who cares? Even if any of the racist sister-bangers are card-carrying Republicans, I’d still like to adjust their attitude by way of a piece of dimension lumber, a car battery, some cheap wiring and a flensing knife.

    As a matter of fact, that would give me an additional reason to do so.

    My daughter’s marriage allowed the few gene challenged bi-podal pests of her semi-rural community to take notice and single her out. I believe it is due to the contrasting differances of skin that the morons take notice and sneer or say something under their breath a bit too loud. She was letting it stear her thinking and nearly ended her marriage because of it.
    With two small children, she was torn between her love for them and a devoted husband and the bitter feelings she had for those hurtful asswipes.
    Her salvation came from the parents of the community who guided her into being more active in the community. She has said that those feelings of flight or fight are fading.
    Deej’s fancy that Rethugs are at the root of this behaviour is silly at best. Here in Chicago, the Kingdom of Daleys™, segragation and racial hotbeds are nurtured by the Dems as a method to keep the conclave areas of the city polarized. With gerry-mandering brought to an art form it keeps any attempt at neopolitan community melding from accuring.
    I see it as the greatest concern for America in the coming elections since the way J. F’n sKerry polarized us in ‘04.

    How do I know so much about the makeup of Idaho? At one time in my long life, I worked at a couple of radio stations in Northern Idaho.

    My wife’s from Idaho, I have numerous in-laws from Idaho. One brother-in-law is a bank president, one is a pharmacist….one sister-in-law is a pharmacist, one is a program director for the University of Idaho….one nephew is playing minor league baseball in the Rockies organization, one is a civil engineer…..I get back there about 2 -3 times a year and have yet to meet any NeoNazis, white supremists, OR Mark Furman. I know a lot of good hard working family oriented HONEST people…..all traits that seem to be missing on the left side of the aisle.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention:

    My brother-in-law’s brother is a Kootenai County Deputy (Hayden Lake area). He’s told us numerous stories about how the law in Northern Idaho take special delight in the neo-nazi’s starting trouble with them, and how the skinheads usually end up in the hospital prior to getting booked….

    I doubt it’s the DNA; I bet it’s the raising of the children.

    I read about one white supremacist who switched to racial tolerance when his little kids turned off a tv show saying “Daddy–we don’t watch shows about Ns” Seeing the effect on his kids changed him. Let’s hope that happens more often. I’ve heard of a few similar cases. Every now and then a neo-Nazi type turns into a civil rights organizer (once a decade?).

    Mike
    Terribly sorry about your daughter’s treatment. It sounds like she would have been constantly stressed.

    I thought we were beyond that sort of thing. Nobody cared when we had biracial neighbors–they were really nice.

    PC,

    Have to agree with you that it is obviously how some kids are raised by their parents. Some kids are just plainly taught to be racist by their parents. Period. And that’s mainly why most, if not all of those letters were written. But I also have to agree with Misha that some of it is out of jealously and some of it is just out of the fear of someone marrying out of their race.

    Anyway, I think the kids are lucky that they got only 30 letters/post cards from those kind of people. That, in its way is an improvement. Anyone know how many letters Sammy Davis, Junior, got when he married a Causcasian female around the time of JFK’s election? Anyone? I don’t, I’m sorry to say. Or, anyone know how much of that crap Hank Aaron got when he was about to break Babe Ruth’s Home Run Record in the 1970s?

    With that said, I seriously doubt any of the 30 are going to do what they say they are going to do. Why? Very simple. They are cowards. Why do I think that? I think the jerks, which is what they are, for the most part, are letting off steam and aren’t really planning to do it, or anything else for that mater. I mean, if they are going to do it, why in the heck are they going to warn the object of their hate that they’re coming? It would be a hell of a lot better to strike at them while they don’t know that you’re gunning for them. Sending those letters/post cards just put the possible victims on alert, removing any element of surprise they might have had, looking for them to show up so that they will get their asses taken out.

    Lastly, please, creeps are creeps and it doesn’t matter where they come from.

    Fortunately, racist conservatives are currently the extreme exception to the rule. The collectivist left, on the other hand, has formalized and institutionalized racism. (”Affirmative Action” and other racist privilege programs, anyone?)

    You can probably tell from the letter which person they are objecting to and thus deduce the race of the hateful person.

    Of course, black people can be rascist. No one said otherwise. I’m told there is a particular dislike among some black women of black men who marry white women, which would fit this case.

    By the way, you mentioned grad school before. What did you study in grad school?

    I’m usually referring to Socialists as that is the ideaology I believe the democrat party wants to govern from.

    You are correct on that. Some blacks can be racists, although they will deny it. There are some black females out there who take exception to black males marrying white females. Of course, it doesn’t mean that black women are the authors of the hatemail those kids got.

    We lived in Athol (north of CDA and Hayden Lake) for a while and it was a pretty mean place to live. Beautiful country though. If we had more money it would have been better though. I remember when the Nasties had their rally at Farrigut state park the rangers cut off all the hot water (still cool that far north in June) and some of the other amenities in the park. Seems like the law said that they could rent the facilities but nobody said they had to be made comfortable. Just before we moved 2 of the Butler bots ran for some political office. One of them could not stay out of jail and the other one got 2 votes… even his wife did not vote for him.

    The usual terminology of political language is stupid. What is “left” and what is “right”? Why should Hitler be “right” and Stalin, his temporary friend, be “left”? Who is “reactionary” and who is “progressive”? Reaction against an unwise policy is not to be condemned. And progress towards chaos is not to be commended. Nothing should find acceptance just because it is new, radical, and fashionable. “Orthodoxy” is not an evil if the doctrine on which the “orthodox” stand is sound. Who is anti-labor, those who want to lower labor to the Russian level, or those who want for labor the capitalistic standard of the United States? Who is “nationalist,” those who want to bring their nation under the heel of the Nazis, or those who want to preserve its independence?

    Serious Sean
    I was going to abbreviate your name–yuch! I’m going to get partisan anyway. Would that be Byrd? I honestly don’t know and am dying to.

    You know–that is a damn good question that I have never thought about it. I think the views are pretty much the same. I think it might just be a newer and shinier name, as compared to us older moldering liberals.

    “good hard working family oriented HONEST people…..all traits that seem to be missing on the left side of the aisle.”

    How can you write off 1/3-1/2 of the population as weaseIs? The liberal/left people I’ve known have either been in intense academic programs or else working poor desperately struggling to survive (and not on welfare!)–both situations where you have to work hard, actually at various jobs, too. I don’t know the beach bums or the people that just hang out.

    I have NEVER seen a correlation between honesty and work ethic between different ideologies. But maybe I’ve been dealing with different people than you. I am not family oriented–it’s spouse and dog–the Norman Bates upbringing put me off family. But I think that’s okay–not every one has to have a family. I would bet that Socialists love their children, too.

    PC,

    Racism is a belief or doctrine that differences in physical appearance between people (such as those upon which the concept of race is based) determine cultural or individual achievement, and usually involve the idea that one’s own ‘race’ is superior.[1]

    For years, we have been told by the pc crowd that because whites are the majority in this country, that only THEY can be racist. My comment, was, of course, sarcastic.

    You asked about my grad school. I am twice an English major (ok, you guys, quite the snickering…geeze). I took my BA and MA in the subject. I recently quit teaching English composition after 14 years.

    The only part of the state that could even be considered “liberal” is Moscow — a college town seven miles from Pullman, WA.

    Thats the main reason I’ve lived here all of my thirty years and will never live anywhere else. exept maybe Texas. I’ve never met or seen a neonazi in my life, and im friends with several “colored folk”, so you can take your “Idaho is the new Mississippi” attitude and stick it in your ass.

    I made fun of Idaho when I was a kid, but then I started meeting people from Idaho. Over the years, I’ve come to know many Idahoans, and they’re some of the best people I know. Not only are then definitely not neo-Nazis, but they’d give the shirts off their backs to help anybody of any color.

    I may have too broad in my labeling of all leftists PC, I think I was taking my revenge for DJ’s broad brushing of all Idahoans. Go back to my first post and read about my in-laws, they’re a pretty good bunch of people. I remember a discussion I had with my late Mother-in-law a few years back when she was staying with us. She and I were debating abortion over morning coffee, she was an Idaho Republican to the core but she favored liberal abortion laws and I don’t. I asked her why she was in favor of it and she said “Because a lot of those babies are being born into a home where there are no fathers, with mothers hooked on drugs, and with little chance of even getting through high school alive, no one should be brought into a world like that…”

    A different side of the debate that I hadn’t thought of…..she was a smart lady and I miss her.

    Welcome to Oregon, now go home.

    It depends a lot on where you are in Oregon. The Interstate 5 corridor is full of California moonbats, and other moonbats, who enjoy being rude to Californians. East of the Cascades, with the exception of some moonbats in Bend, you are in another world. Most people are friendly and helpful. I have cousins in Klamath Falls whose family has been on the land for over 100 years, and they are the salt of the earth. Oregon is very different from Idaho.

    Ummm….at the risk of overstating the obvious here, Johnson proposed to his lovely girlfriend on national television. Keyword….NATIONAL. Unless I have missed something remarkable in broadcast television in the last several months, nationally televised sporting events are still being broadcast to other states besides Idaho. Additionally, I believe that the US Postal Service is still delivering mail to Idaho from other states unless there has been some sort of quarantine declared that I didn’t hear about. Same goes for routing of calls through telephone providers.
    So, deej, although I enjoy the different perspectives you bring to the Rott, you just made yourself look like an asshat. Sorry.

    Idaho, huh? Go figure. That is Bush country, and SOLID Republican (69%). I think the only other state that beat Idaho was Utah (71%). As a comparison, Texas came in at (61%). It’s home to a large contingent of NeoNazis, white supremists, and Mark Furman…

    Is there a correllation here? Yes, to some extent. The state is full of ultra-Right wingers — most people on this site would be considered only slightly of Marx

    Idaho? How do you know the threats came from Idaho? What makes you thing those who made the threats are “right wingers”? Please enlighten us to your inside information.

    To make those assumptions about the people of Idaho, you’re no better than the products of inferior breeding who are threatening this young man and his bride.

    Speaking of KKK types, I was looking at a map of hate groups at 3:30 AM. (I do my fun reading right before bed, and then strangely can’t get to sleep.) There is a KKK group the next county over! Along with 3 skinhead groups. I guess they are everywhere. I will try to find out everything I can about them. I hope they are more of a social club, rather than a physically active group. (Violent impulses deleted)

    Guess I left myself wide open!

    While you’re here, having studied English sounds really fun. I took so many science classes, and there are all these classics I’ve never read. Nothing is stopping me, but between trying to keep up with politics and science, I’ve already lost. I expect to read all the time when I’m older and not gardening.

    That sounds really important to teach composition. Were your students proficient?

    Who were those annoying PC people you dealt with? Were they kids likely to gain tolerance as they got older? It sounds like they needed to be smacked in the head.

    Were your students proficient?

    Some were; most weren’t. The public schools are graduating functionally illiterate youngsters. Kids are truly getting dumber every year. The schools are more concerned with “social promotion” and self-esteem than they are whether students can read or write.

    I taught college English composition for all of those 14 years. I have since moved into the tutoring center, where I see higher-levels papers, some as high as 600-level. It’s a tragedy when those papers aren’t any better than undergrad papers.

    It’s a sad state of affairs when my Zimbabwean (and other African British colony) students write/speak/understand English better than a native-born American.

    Thanks. I had read that in some schools that were really crowded, students didn’t write a single essay all through high school! I found that chilling.

    Sigh–well at least you are helping train them.

    I’d forgotten all about this. In an undergrad course, we had to write a research paper in intro plant pathology, which I thought was fun. Some of the kids were indignant that they got graded on the quality of their writing in addition to the science! (I guess not all the ag students were into English.)

    Now it makes more sense about what I’ve read of colleges needing to have a ton of remedial classes to get their students ready to take college classes.

    I didn’t think there were 30 people left who still got worked up about this sort of thing (aside from ROPs).

    Just goes to show, evolution is a bloody slow process, and by no means uniform.

    It really, really pisses me off that I have to tolerate sharing perfectly good oxygen with creatures as utterly useless as that; racist throwbacks to the earliest state of evolution who ought to be beaten and shot for the amusement of the rest of us. I mean, have we achieved nothing over the last, I don’t know, 140 years or so?

    I do love me some Misha rage. It’s so…lyrical.

    Nobody cared when we had biracial neighbors–they were really nice.

    Biracial? You mean like Spock or Deanna Troi?

    I’m not cracking on you, PC, honestly, but it’s a pet peeve of mine. Unless you’re talking about feet or vehicles, “race” is the most abused word in the English language.

    Fun fact: I put “Other: Homo Sapiens” under “race” on my last job application.

    Unless my parents have a lotta ’splaining to do, it’s the only answer I consider accurate.

    I read about one white supremacist who switched to racial tolerance when his little kids turned off a tv show saying “Daddy–we don’t watch shows about Ns” Seeing the effect on his kids changed him.

    There was a kid who use to live next store to me, I’d know him since he was 4 years old and saw him a few times a year even after his family moved out because the house belonged to his Grandmother and others in the family moved in and out over the years.

    His Dad was a Sheriff, then P.I. then security guard, then coke head. His Mom was a overbearing Valkyie. He went from a nice kid to a shaved headed tatooed skinhead.

    He asked me for a job, and I told him that most of the guys he would work with Mexican’s and Black’s and had seniority over him and he’d have to work under them. He said don’t sweat it and don’t go by how he looks. He said one day he looked at the people he got along with best and it turned out that they were mostly minorities. He decided the White Supremacy road was crap.

    He was a great worker (though habitually 10 minutes late :em12: ) and got along with everyone.

    Perhaps if he’d raised been in a white enclave area he would have stuck with the Neo-Nazi’s, but in L.A. you’re going to deal with any race you can think of on a daily basis, and unless you ignore the world you live in, you have to realize most people are good.

    I’m really not obsessed about race. It’s the racists, I’m obsessed about actually. (The ones that favor extermination–not the casual ones)

    The thread was about threats to a mixed race couple that had just gotten engaged. Someone else had a comment about her daughter taking abuse from people because of a mixed marriage. It seemed relevant to me to mention that we had no racism directed at a similar couple where I live.

    I normally would go around talking about Vince and Karen. This is the only time I have ever referred to them as our biracial neighbors. They were our neighbors at other times. My stepdaughter’s boyfriend was black. (I was glad she wasn’t racist.) We would refer to him as her boyfriend.

    I think it was just the context. I don’t think it’s wrong to describe people–I think it’s wrong to make assumptions about them because of that. I enjoy knowing that there are Danish, Jewish (American and Israeli), black (American), Irish-German, English, and Australian here–have I missed anyone (excluding Caucasian Americans)? Seagoon is in China. but he’s English (felt foolish complimenting him on his English).

    That’s a great story. It kind of gives me hope.

    You haven’t dealt with any of the nasty shit in LA recently? The black/Latino gang fights where the 14 year old black girl got shot and killed sitting on her bicycle by the dividing line. Or with the Mexican Mafia doing ethnic cleansing of blacks in their neighborhoods? That’s really refreshing that people get along in your area.

    You haven’t dealt with any of the nasty shit in LA recently?

    I have worked for the last 30 years in Downtown L.A.. I lived in the Barrio for three years, long ago, but the people knew who I worked for and I could walk to the store at 1:00 AM without getting hassled. Now that I’m (a lot) older and wiser, and working for a different company, I just drive to work, close the gates, then drive home. I get really PO’d when they close the freeway on ramps I normally use and I get a midnight tour of this fine city trying to get to the next one.
