Your blogger

When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

What the fuck is wrong with people in this country? In yet another disgusting display of ignorance, hate and bigotry, we see that some troglodytes can't grasp that everyone has a right to occupy space in this land!
The family of Marco McMillian, a 33 year-old openly gay candidate for mayor of Clarksdale, Mississippi released a statement yesterday saying that he was beaten and set on fire before his lifeless body was dumped near a river. Last Thursday, police arrested a 22-year old man who, like McMillian, is African-American and charged him with the mayoral candidate’s murder. Although the motive for the murder remains unknown, the circumstances of the murder suggest a possible anti-gay hate crime. According to the family, “[w]e feel this was not a random act of violence based on the condition of the body when it was found.”

For all the so-called "Christians" out there preaching hatred against the gays, this is the bitter fruit of your bigotry asshats! True Christians preach love, not discrimination and hate.

Apparently the white ignorance of Mississippi is still alive and strong. These troglodytes will never evolve as a species until they can learn to appreciate others for their differences instead of hating and harming each other because of them.

Mississippi; that says it all in one word.

The state of Mississippi, you are today's worst people in the world!
