Race for Geneva Mayor: I am wondering about what Mark Pitifer stands for. What happened to "All God's Children"? Now a friend of Tom Reed, a Trump supporter.

Kudos Veronica, I too wondered about that premise, personally I like Mark a whole lot but noted a few of his postings on Facebook supporting Tom Reed, someone I had the unfortunate pleasure of meeting. It's becoming very convoluted to receive the support and respect from the minority community yet simultaneously support a racist Reed.

EASY, anyone that supports the same policies as Trump is CLEARLY a racist. He went down to the border 3 weeks ago and reiterated thus so verbally. Look it up for your own edification, something which most racists fail to do, they call it denial due to intended ignorance. Most racists would rather debate than attempting to understand the position of people of color.Hope that you don't walk into a trap due to the fact that I'm known as a Liberal thinker that need no reiteration or backup from others, something most Trump supporters and GOP members are highly in need of. wink Question: how would you contrude a person who does not steal, murder, cheat lie yet support all these action full heartily?

OK, Veronica, we get it. I'm not disagreeing, but repeated posts aren't necessary. It will be interesting to see if a Tom Reed endorsement helps or hurts Mr. Pitifer.

Are you the forum police? if the sentiment is repeated 30 times, what is wrong with "The freedom of speech"? or are we expressing the rhetoric of Donald J. Trump? the attempts to control one's opinion

Bigot
OED: "A person who is intolerant towards those holding different opinions."

Webster:": a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices
especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (such as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance"

Wikipedia:"A bigot is someone intolerant of others' differing ideas, races, genders, religions, politics, etc."


Thanks for your input which has manage to confirm Veronica's assessment. She question the stance of any of us when we verbally say one thing but our personal actions contradicts our words. BIGOT, RACIST, HYPOCRITE, TWO FACE etc. can often describe an individual who's view take the stance of never considering the views of others. I find it odd that when other question our stance, the instantaneous response..."YOU'RE a racist etc. Take the time to reflect on other's words and why they make those assessment before jumping the gun....If one's wife always carry black eyes, fat lips and bruises, tell us, can one assume that she is being abuse by her husband or is she prone to accidentally falling down stair and running into doors? @ Veronica, I'm sure that you have reason(s) for prompting certain questions and I deem those questions to be very valid in spite of those that disagree. It's very easy to deem myself as a man to understand the pain of child birth but if I never experienced it.... I'm running my mouth based on assumption.

OK, so let me get this straight.
Reed supports Trump, so Reed is a racist.
If Mr. Pitifer supports Reed, Mr. Pitifer would be a racist?

I'm just asking, not making a statement.

I think in one of statement, I ask the question, what makes one identify with another's belief? I think that before you ask me this one question, please answer that particular one in your own mind. I'm a happily married man of 40 years, a beautiful family etc. how do I identify with a wife beater and one who abuses his kids?

Do you believe in tax evasion, cheating on your wife, petty name calling, adolescence behavior etc. yet we as a society expect our local officials, school principal etc. to have a moral compass. Why would we give Trump and those similar to him a free pass? One exception, our agenda taking precedent of morals. Maybe I need to check my personal morality.......I'm making a statement, not asking a question

All those things are terrible. I'm just not sure of the "supporter theory".

Believe me Sir, no theory, had the misfortune of meeting Reed, the person that invited me to his town hall meeting was embarrassed by his messages and totally walked away from said setting. Maybe you need the definition of SUPPORT?

I'll ask you a very simplistic question "Why do you support the GOP party?" Secondly "why would I over the last 40 years vote Republican, Democratic, and Independent party? I'll wait for your response.

I don't support the GOP party.
I wouldn't support any one particular party.

I support who I think is the best candidate and who will do best for my City, County, State or Federal Government.

Does that answer your questions?

Not really, solely for the simple reason that you decided to weigh in on my response to another forum reader
