From another local story on the store:

"Bless 'em. That's my response, bless 'em," said Marjorie Lyon, the new owner and manager of Wildman's. "I will not subscribe to the knee-jerk nonsense."

Today I learned 162 years of battling this bullshiat is "knee-jerk nonsense".

The fact that we didn't boot stomp the holy fark out of the South during Reconstruction is our biggest mistake. And the way things are going, it will be why this country falls to the fascist designs the GOP has plotted in a decades-long strategy.

(Black) interviewer: don't you think this is offensive to Black people?
(White) racist old woman: well offensive is a relative term, darlin'

Congratulations to the reporter for not beating the owner to death with the microphone as a joke.

Well, Mike Lindell just got MyPillow kicked out of Walmart, and he's looking for a new retail outlet...

They might not sell the pillows but they'll surely be willing to sell the pillowcases once the eye holes are cut out.

I grew up in Marietta, and lived in Kennesaw for a time. The locals know this place. The original owner, "Dent" Myers, had a look I can only describe as Charles Manson-esque.

He was open about his klan membership, and as disgusting a person as you think he would be.
 
2022-06-16 7:17:54 AM  
I was hoping when the guy died, this place would die permanently with him. It's one of those things we knew about, because we'd see the place going through Kennesaw on U.S. 41 before I-75 was built and before they bypassed downtown Kennesaw with a 4 lane highway 41.

It's not a "museum" any more than a collection of racist screeds is a "library."

Looking at downtown Kennesaw on street view, they soon either won't be able to afford the property taxes or will get a developer buy-out offer they can't refuse. Though I never underestimate the obstinance and outright stupidity of white supremacists.

Good ol' Tennessaw.  Or Kennessee.

Klans R Us was taken? Certainly a lot of "heritage" in that store.

It took a long time to collect all those knick knacks. That means her community is generally amenable to this. fark 'em all.

There was an ahole who lived nearby who had a big confederate flag on his porch, along with White Lives Matter sign on the front lawn.  I got sick of looking at it and bought subscriptions to Ebony, Jet and other black magazines, then I found catalogs for black clothing, which were free, and I addressed them all to Redd Nekracist and had them sent to his house.  It must have made him paranoid because in a few months, all the signs were gone and six months later the house was up for sale.

While new blood and genes would probably help a lot in fixing their issues long-term, they are pretty unfarkable.

Wildman's?  *click*  Wildman's.  Yyyyeah, that's a...  That's definitely a place.  I don't know that they actually have customers to speak of, more like gawkers; often kids who go to Kennesaw for college, hear about how farking nuts the place is, and have to see it to believe it.  I'm sure they do have some like-minded clientele, though.  I hadn't heard the original owner died, but good farking riddance.  His only value to the world was as an example of the kind of person who would have a place like that.

Maybe start burning some crosses in front of the store.  The owners should feel right at home with that kind of expression.

A buy-out would make me sad because this woman would have money to live on and continue to be a racist shiatbag. She'd learn nothing except that being racist is profitable.

Add some bibles to that pile as well.  There are too many bibles out there.

Hrm...There's a big-ass confederate flag flying on the next road over.  Gotta look at that shiat every time I go into town.  I've just taken it as one of nature's warnings to "do not touch".  But y'all's giving me some idears.

I'd honestly be kind of curious to see their insurance coverage.  I wouldn't be shocked to find out they were practically uninsurable for just that reason.
 
2022-06-16 8:58:53 AM  
Well isn't she precious. Precious meaning a dumb, hate-filled, evil, racist old biatch.

Had to deal with plenty of women like her... when they thought I was white they said I should make sure to keep an eye on "the boy" while we delivered stuff like refrigerators.

I hope this story is true, because it is exactly the kind of 'community feedback' these people need to make them understand they are in a minority and don't have the general acceptance they think they do.

Some non-racist person should buy it and burn it to the ground.

I kinda want to buy an old beat up car, install a bad ass sound system, park it in front of her shop and Just have it blaring "Battle hymn of the Republic", "When Johnny comes marching home again" "The Irish Volunteer" etc... on a loop all day every day.

I would even through in the occasional reading of The Gettysburg Address.
 
2022-06-16 9:28:50 AM  
I wouldn't step foot in one of those stores, but, if the owner wants to sell stuff like that, I don't care.
I wouldn't step foot in a tattoo/piercing shop either because I think it is disgusting, but others may like
that stuff, so no big deal.
Mind your own business, and if you don't like it, don't patronize it.

Oh I doubt that poster would have any problem with that. Now if Planned Parenthood opened anywhere in their city, they'd probably be the first there with torches and pitchforks.

That's applying a non-liberal methodology to a liberal concern, so therefore the torching will not occur.
