Readers!
 
For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

Democratic civility: An openly gay volunteer for a Republican running for Congress in Wisconsin was severely beaten in his home after receiving threatening and obscene messages from the husband of the Democratic candidate.

The Democratic candidate is also openly gay, and it was his husband who sent the messages, some of which are also include racial insults of the Republican candidate’s Mexican-American wife.

  • I’ve seen the update. However, I have refrained from updating my link because if you click through, you will see that though the victim has “recanted” his testimony, it is very unclear what this means. I await more information.

    It means this was a hoax. It is always disgusting when people pull a hoax like this. While this type of thing happens all the time on the left, it looks like the right is not immune, which is disappointing.

    So far the republican candidate has had nothing to do with this and is in no way implicated in it.

    What I can not understand would be why would the young man pull something like this?
    The candidate he is working for stands a good chance of winning. He didn’t need any kind of stunt like this to gain votes.

    I just hope this young man didn’t plan this the whole time he was working with the republican candidate just to cast dispersions on him this close to the election.

    At best the rep candidate can only say he is sorry this happened and hopes the young man gets the medical help he needs both physically and mentally.

    Implying the young man has a mental problem is the only thing he can do.
