"He's a dictatorial person," Bryant said. "Reminds me of Adolf Hitler."
Knew der Fuhrer personally, did you? Huh.

Tarrant has a population of a little over 6,000 people. It's time for it to surrender the town charter and build a WalMart on top of where it used to stand.

I mean...
Sadly I can see situations (actually up north and out west too) where saying that would have been applauded.

City Council meetings have to be the most tedious thing conceivably imaginable, especially in small towns. The start of people who run for Council are usually not the best sort of people.

That guy's a special sort of spectacular example of that.

We should bring back punching people in the mouth when say shiat like this.
A potentially punched society is a polite society.

And if anyone does anything to the grand wizard grampa, he will be a victim of cancel culture-we can't have that!  I'm sure that he thought it was a complimentary term, since slavery wasn't all that bad to most of those good people 'on both sides'.

The only consequences for fools like this arse is they get their own AM radio program, invited on Tucker Carlson's show, or get booked as a speaker at CPAC.

False.  I assumed it would be a pedo thing.

In other words the black guy got all upity and is undermining the town's well established traditionally white dominated "good 'ol boy"/"city boss" system of governance.

spot on

the same whine is used by capitol insurrectionists who are getting arrested -- using legal authority against THEM is mUh fAsCiSm

if I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times, conservatives absolutely cannot stand not getting the final say on every single decision

If they can't stand, I say we help them keep upright.  Maybe a nice vertical pole, perhaps some cross supports... they like crosses, right?  Can't have them falling off, either.  So maybe a small platform for their feet.  They're used to narrow platforms supporting them, after all.  A bit of rope to help them keep balance... and a bit of NIN to keep them steadfast in their convictions.

You know their convictions, right?  Racism, pedophilia, misogyny, rape/sexual assault, voter fraud, embezzling...

Why build another capitalist shrine? Build a park insead.

Just before the 1 hour and 41-minute mark, an unidentified person in the audience states that Bryant's wife used the n-word on Facebook.

Wife-like typing detected?

Oh and his wife sounds like a lovely god fearing Christian.

To fit the landscape better, it should be a Dollar General right down the street from another Dollar General.

Not one person has the human decency to call a recess so that Ms. Freeman can catch her breath. I didn't know it was possible to hate people I've never met so much. I hope I never have occasion to so much as pull over and buy gas in that hell hole.
 
2021-07-21 9:14:19 AM  
Wow, that's really farked up.

76 years old.  This asshole will die a city councilor to keep another black resident from holding the position.

Yup.  Thought for sure we were looking at a live boy or dead girl kiddiediddler.

Given her reaction, I'm guessing this guy is a verbally abusive racist on a regular basis and this is just the first time he's been caught on video.

From the description it sounds like he was quoting the mayor he was arguing with.

Well guess he is off to the state house next.
 
2021-07-21 11:01:02 AM  
Bryant whines about being interrupted but he doesn't allow the black MAYOR to speak 2 sentences without interrupting constantly.  White dudes is just peeved he's not being treated better than the blacks who are of equal or higher rank in the town government.
 
2021-07-21 11:13:13 AM  
The article says some people want him to resign, but why such a little request? I'm sure his house, like any other house, is perfectly flammable.

Agreed.

It was a stupid thing to say, and I have no problem believing he might be a racist fark, but he was clearly quoting someone else on the dais.
 
2021-07-21 12:29:44 PM  
He looked so excited to say it too, from what I noticed. Christ, what an asshole.

No, dumbass, I want people to think before they open their racist mouths on account of the likelihood of getting punched for saying things that they should know better not to.
