===== POTENTIAL HATE SPEECH / FRINGE / TROLL WARNING =====
Here’s the YouTube video showing my recent speech on young Obama’s extremist revolutionary perspective at the San Juan Capistrano Republican Women Federated meeting on April 20, 2011. See, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81bhSQo_44E&feature=BFp&list=WL61A573845C692CF3&index=1 If I was still teaching political science at Williams College, then I think this YouTube would be quite exciting to the undergrad students.

@John C. Drew, Ph.D.:
The biblical names index shows both “Stanley” (as per ‘Stanleigh’) and “Anne” as historical gendered female, though “Stanley” (per Stanly) has been primarily used for males in the 20th century. Otherwise, you’re engaged in a witch hunt and I’m not going to condescend to treat that witch hunt as anything but what it is.

LOL Really, I don’t know how anyone can take left seriously any more. :-) I’ve never really been attacked for “potential hate speech” before. LOL. (I’m laughing so hard I have tears in my eyes right now.) For the video tape of my recent speech, along with my commentary, please see http://anonymouspoliticalscientist.blogspot.com/2010/08/no-more-keys-for-you-president-junks.html
Also, notice the applause for my wife and for her bravery in getting out the truth about young Obama’s extremist ideology at 11:00 minutes into the YouTube video.

WRT John C. Drew,
I’m not attacking anyone. Various individuals have expressed concerns about your postings, and I’m merely applying the best descriptive label I can to let people sort, at this point.
By ‘potential,’ I mean that your postings may potentially be considered hate speech, as I understand the articulation of that (admittedly questionable) term.
There are, of course, twenty-some other odd editors here, any of whom who can choose (wiki-style) to contradict me.
Otherwise, John, I don’t intent to deny you a forum at this point, but in my book, you look like a loon and quack like a loon, and are being treated as such :)

@ #75 kthomas
Please… I’ve never even heard of “potential hate speech” before and your even sillier “potential religious hate speech” label is really causing me to split my sides with laughter.
The last time I looked, my Republican friends took over the U.S. House of Representatives. My take on Obama has appeared in at least four major publications since 2011.
As you may know, I’m a published author, and award-winning political scientist and a former Williams professor. I’m also a contributor at American Thinker and David Horowitz’s News Real Blog Site. I think it is fair to say that your silliness marks you as part of the cutting edge of what normal people think of as “liberal fascism.” See, http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/05/barack_obama_the_quintessentia_1.html

=== WARNING: PARODY OF LIBERAL SILLINESS – REALLY VERY FUNNY…LIKE MONTY PYTHON===
Please… kthomas. You are over the top silly right now.
It makes me grin to think that your ego is so fragile and that you think my comments regarding President Obama’s ideology and cultural background are so important that they demand that you take righteous action – right way – to prevent me from making fun of your silliness through imitating your use of bold and blockquote features of this website. Please… LOL
I can’t believe you have time for this sort of controlling, plainly aberrant behavior.
I wish someone from FOX News was watching this exchange right now. Your implied threat of your mysterious status as a high ranking government official is particularly bizarre.
It is a good example of why giving liberals just a little, itty bit of power rapidly turns them into scary, even dangerous people. You are behaving like a liberal fascist. I can’t believe, for example, that you are making up two new categories in the field of “potential” hate speech simply because you are too lazy to defend your outright censorship of my comments.
You should read A Conflict of Visions by Thomas Sowell. FYI: I’m also an appointed member of the Orange County Republican Central Committee. I’m sure that an extremely important diplomat – like you – certainly understands the meaning of “appointed” when it comes to credibility in the real world.

=== WARNING: LIBERALS CAUSE UNCONTROLLABLE LAUGHTER ===
One of the cool things about this blog site is that it provides a lot of us with ammunition for the upcoming Presidential campaign regarding how dangerous it is to have liberals in power. They are, quite frankly, a threat to freedom of speech. My wife and I have been willing to give our lives – and to risk our business – to get the word out about my face-to-face observations of young Barack Obama’s extremist Marxist ideology. I thought kthomas’s invention of two new categories of “potential” hate speech – as a tool to discredit me in public – was over the top silly tonight.

On my Anonymous Political Scientist blog site, liberals can post their work without interference. Then, conservative ideology teaches me the value of freedom of speech.

Dear John C. Drew,
I have given you a wide leeway in face of objections of others, and in fact in the face of PO-ing a great deal of others on this forum.
Any restrictions you face are not content-based but based on the quality and nature of the material you post, and the behaviors you engage in.
In particular, you posted links to your “work” which suggests that Barack Obama’s mother is … something dark, shall we say… because one of her names is, in your rather uninformed opinion, typically “male.”
If that’s not “demeaning others” (for non-substantive reasons), I don’t know what is.
I did not censor this piece of material, but I did mark it in a way that our visitors might identify clearly, as, among other things, outside our norm.
That seems fair to me, though since we are a collectively edited site, other editors are free to express objections or take contrary actions.
You then began to engage in a childish game of tit-for-tat. Well, we’re not going to play such games, if for no other reason than I am not amused by them.
I hope this provides some explanation, insomuch as I am not seeking your understanding or consent. This is likely to be the final explanation you receive.

I’m sorry, but your last comment has caused me to think that you are seriously mentally ill. If you persist in this behavior, I’m going to put you in the same classification as “jeffz” – someone it is not fair for me to argue with…
To any normal person, naming your daughter “Stanley” is a sign of dysfunction in a household. As one of the few political scientists in the nation who has also taught courses on child abuse and neglect, I think you are dangerously out of touch with reality if you sincerely believe my comments on this aberrant, deviant behavior by Obama’s grandparents is, in any way, hate speech.
===WARNING HARSH WORDS FROM DR. DREW==FYI: There is no such thing as “potential” hate speech.===DR. DREW’S HARSH WORDS ARE NOW OVER===
Your suggestion that centuries ago some girls were named “Stanley” strikes me as plainly silly and beside the point. I wish you had been in one of my child abuse and neglect classes while I taught through the political science department at Williams in the mid-1980s. You would better understand the implications of Dunham’s cruel decision to name their daughter after her father without regard for the damage this would do to her life and her mental health.
As far as I can tell, all the comments that you have blocked from me are focused on making fun of your silly, snippy behavior last night. In these posts, I’m ripping up your pretentious, self-importance and the sheer nonsense that your cloak in politically correct jargon. What a joke! You don’t even post here under your own name. I feel sorry for the people around you who put up with you snippy behavior and what we used to call – at Opera Pacific – ‘queening out.”

I’m really amazed at kthomas’s behavior. I think when, if ever, my comments are released, objective NYT reporters will be amazed at this example of pure liberal childishness.
What is particularly funny to me right now is kthomas’s aristrocratic language – reminding me that I’m not his equal on this forum :-) – or the really funny, “I’m not amused” comments. LOL This is a perfect example of everything people find frightening about liberals.
I’m grateful that I have my own website and my own access to the public through American Thinker and David Horowitz’s News Real Blog Site. This is a bizarre episode in my life. I give a well-received speech to one of the top Republican organizations in the nation and enjoy tremendous applause. Here, however, the exact same talk is given the bizarre label of “potential” hate speech. This is a fitting reminder of how sick, mentally ill and dangerous liberals have become to freedom of speech. In the current political climate, liberals are increasingly dangerous to the cause of liberty.
===WARNING MORE HARSH WORDS FROM DR. DREW==FYI: There is no such thing as “potential” hate speech.===DR. DREW’S HARSH WORDS ARE NOW OVER===
Sadly, in a divided nation, the real "hate speech" is the censorship and hostility directed at young, white, male and female conservative students. As this censored exchange demonstrates, there is little sense of humor, or reality, among the liberals like Kenneth Thomas who think they know better than the rest of us what is the right course for our nation. Standing up to these bullies is becoming an important part of protecting our freedom and liberty.
