REO-Weedwagon: Build him up. Tear him down. It's the American way.


Indeed.

J. Frank Parnell: This should do it.


Now all we need is some slack-jawed farktard in the thread to cite that sincerely, to honestly try to take him down a peg.

Kahabut: 3 Domestic violence convictions resulting in prison time. I don't see why we can't hold him up as a black role model, ML King was known to like to beat on women once in a while too.


Thank you for teaching me that once again, my darkest cynicism is not dark enough. You are truly a gem among mankind.

And that guy should undergo forced sterilization.


It's a fat white chick, surprise surprise.

Anybody that wants to shiat on this guy that admittedly did something bad over ten years ago, plead guilty, did his time and has been in no trouble since is a bigger problem to our society than Mr Ramsey ever was.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: This guy is farking awesome. Plain and simple.

Anyone else see some of the "if you like Charles Ramsey, you're racist" super liberal bullshiat that's started?

Some hyper pc leftist posted some shiat on my FB feed about how anyone who posts the Ramsy interview video is perpetuating black stereotypes and making fun of black culture and is a racist.

Crazy shiat.


[facepalm.jpg]

The guy is awesome. I completely agree with your assessment.

Unless his interview was scripted (in which case fire up the tin-foil-hat schizophrenia machine), it wasn't racist. Liking it is not racist. Seriously, what in the world would make someone think that? It was one heroic dude giving an interview in his own, enthusiastic style. References to BBQ and McDonalds were made. Whatever.

In any case, I'm a liberal. And I question the liberality of whoever posted on your feed, because what you describe doesn't sound progressive. It sounds... well, hypersensitive yet stupid.

Damn straight.  He manned up, took his lumps and has made something of himself.  Here's hoping he fades back into the anonymity he obviously cares more about than cameras.

The guy is a hero. It didn't surprise me that the shiatbags out there would be digging hard out there for turds in the guys life. It doesn't change what he did on Monday.  I suspect the shiatbags dig for turds, because they have never done anything even close to what Ramsey did. Their whole claim to fame is trying to tear people down. Fark off smokinggun.com.

tlchwi02: Gyrfalcon: Ten years ago. I'd say he's paid his dues and then some today.

I agree- he ran to help a woman in a situation that a decade ago he might have been the one perpetrating. not only do I have no problem with him keeping the hero tag, but the fact he could change from a perpetrator to someone willing to step in and stop it almost speaks more for him.


While agreeing with you for the most part, I doubt that this particular situation is one that Ramsey has ever perpetrated. There's a pretty big gap between punching or hitting someone and locking them up in your house for a decade-plus.

right, I mean where he originally said he thought it was a domestic dispute that he was intervening in. it turned out to be quite a bit crazier, but even if it was just a "normal" domestic it was still a brave thing he did

We don't even know if that really ever happened. We don't know the details of the situation. When my ex-wife and i went through a divorce and custody battle, she said she was gonna have her new boy friend and his homeboys kick my ass when I went to pick up my kids for visitation. I asked the cops to go with me, and they did. She threatened them, and almost arrested her at the time. We had court that monday, and she went there with bruises all along her back and said I beat her up when i came to pick the kids up. The douche attorney for Santa Clara County treated me like a piece of shiat on her word. When I gave him the police badge numbers of the cops who watched the whole thing, he still treated me like a douche. When they told him what happened he shut his pie hole, but never apologized. My ex was a meth addict, and I got custody of my kids. It's easy to make accusations against someone, and cops will always be on the safe side, and go with the woman. Women are also good liars though. It's very douchebag for smokinggun.com to go after this guy after what he did, and try to tear him down. Doesn't look like they gave him a chance to defend himself, and he shouldn't have too. Do a good deed, and have douchebags try to tear you down.

Charles Ramsay wasn't the one who rescued those girls, he came up as someone else was rescuing them, and then he called 911 when the girl had already called 911.

He also is a serial domestic abuser.

So yeah, the only way this guy is a hero is that he was an immediately recognizable meme as soon as anyone saw his interview.

I'd quote all the folks who would have a beer or ribs or whatever with the guy, but it would be too much work.
I would gladly buy the man a drink and many beers and good eats should I ever find myself in that part of the country, again.  I have nothing but respect for his actions in the past 48 hours.
Sure, I might read his history with the johnnys' long arm, and think otherwise, but, before I do that-
Cheers, Charles. You have done good. You set a good example for the species. Kudos .

o_O

I'm as North as North can get (not physically, socially) and fried chicken and watermelon were staples every summer picnic.

That, and one evening my mom's Pyrex dish shattered while cooking up some ribs in the oven; to talk ourselves out of being idiots, my dad and I actually had to discuss the risks of small bits of glass (pyrex) that might be in the food.

Yeah, Amanda Berry on the phone with 911, the audio of that is available on any news site. Listen to Charles Ramsay's 911 call too, where he says she is on the phone with 911 too.

Also, Charles Ramsay himself said he saw someone run over there to the house which is what led him to go see what was going on. He also says he kicked the door to get her out, which the real guy who was there first says is bullshiat.

Check thesmokinggun for his MULTIPLE domestic violence arrests over many years. I know that one doesn't sit right with you, but your situation is slightly different than someone refusing to pay child support and being arrested multiple times for it over the years.

Honestly, (and I can't believe I get to play this card), the writer of that article is the REAL racist for focusing exclusively on viral videos of black folks (also, the lack of Bubb Rubb is a flagrant omission in that regard). How about the crazy "smash, SUH-MASH" hatchet hitchiker dude, or the "What does it mean?!??" hippie rainbow guy, or "they don't have maps/like such as the Iraq" beauty pageant girl? Viral videos go viral because we appreciate people who are characters, not because we wanna bring back minstrelsy and demand a little soft-shoe from anybody with brown skin.

You know I have much respect for you, so lets start there. I have seen nothing to say Ramsey wasn't the one to kick down the door. He said in the interview there was the neighbor across the street was involved. He's proclaiming he's not a hero. He doesn't want reward money, but he was there to help. He did. And now different media like smokinggun.com are now here to crucify him. Do you not see anything wrong with this? Help someone. Get proclaimed a hero. And now Smokinggun.com is here to expose all your former demons to the public. It's disgusting.
