A racist comment by an Austin Noodle House owner has caused a firestorm of controversy, with one group demanding a boycott of the restaurant after Eddie Nimibutr responded to the Connecticut school shooting by remarking, “I don’t care if a bunch of white kids got killed.”
The full comment, posted on Nimibutr’s Facebook page, read, “I’m failing to give a damn about the CT shooting. I don’t care if a bunch of white kids got killed. F**k Post-Racial bullshit. When kids from minority groups get shot, nobody cares. When Israel launched missiles at the school on Gaza, everybody was too busy jerking off. Why should i care about people who dont give a damn about me? Personal responsibility, right?”
Thailand-born Nimibutr’s crass racism prompted a wave of complaints and a campaign to boycott his Thai Noodle House restaurant in Austin, Texas. Users of the Yelp service also flooded his establishment with one star reviews and negative comments.
However, Nimibutr was unrepentant, and followed up by lashing out at his critics with another missive in which he wrote, “If you don’t like me or my opinions, I suggest you to unfriend me and fuck off. I am pretty much sick of some people telling me what to think, how to think, or how to feel today, and if you don’t like my foods, fuck off and eat someplace else.”
Nimibutr has apparently now left Austin to escape the controversy, saying, “I think It’s time for me to get out of this city for awhile for a nice hike down south.”
Staff at the noodle house responded to calls by claiming that Nimibutr was not the owner of the restaurant, but others speculated this was probably an exercise in “damage control”. Nimibutr is listed as the owner in numerous business directories.

For the second time in Chicago this year, the life of a gender-variant young person of color was lost to violence.
Donta Gooden's body was found in an abandoned building on the city's West Side late in the evening of August 14th. Gooden, 19, who also went by the name "Tiffany," was stabbed to death just three blocks from where Paige Clay, a 23-year-old transgender woman, was shot and killed in April, according to media reports. The police investigation is ongoing.
The tragedy of these senseless killings, still so raw and heartrending for the loved ones of Gooden and Clay, is beyond comprehension and deplorable on every level. But perhaps even more unsettling is how often violent crimes against LGBTQ people occur and how little social outrage they ignite.
For many, these two terrible tragedies may melt into the background in a year when Chicago is scrambling to stem a rising tide of murder across the city (year -to-date homicides are up 25% from August 2011 according to data compiled by the Redeye. However, they are part of an alarming trend of violence targeting LGBTQ people of color - and transgender and gender-variant people of color in particular -- which directly intersects with the frontlines of the HIV epidemic.
Nationally, transgender women represented 40 percent of the 30 reported hate murders against the LGBTQ community in 2011, the most recent data available from the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs. In the same year, LGBTQ people of color represented 80 percent of the people killed in hate murders.

The Anti-Defamation League lawyers wrote the hate crime law and used their political influence to get bought and paid for lawmakers to vote on passing hate crime legislation. The ADL is just grandstanding.
he Anti-Defamation League (ADL) condemned the shooting that took place at the Family Research Council on Wednesday, in which the suspect allegedly professed his political differences with the organization before opening fire. The ADL is calling for police to investigate the act as a hate crime.
“The use of violence against an individual or organization because of a disagreement with their beliefs, values, or policy positions is unacceptable and indefensible,” said ADL's Washington, D.C. Regional Director David C. Friedman in a statement.
“Free speech – no matter who the speaker is, no matter how offensive or objectionable the speech, is one of the foundation principles of our nation,” he said.The Anti-Defamation League lawyers wrote the hate crime law and used their political... more
The second attack on an area mosque over the weekend has an Islamic group calling on autorities to increase security around Muslim institution during the final days of Ramadan.
On Sunday night, the College Preparatory School of America, an Islamic school in west suburban Lombard, had a bottle of acid and other materials thrown outside the school during evening Ramadan prayers, according to the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago.
During the prayers, worshippers heard a loud bang outside and went out to find an empty 7Up bottle thrown at a window of the school, according to CIOGC.
No injuries were reported, but a report was filed with police. A Lombard police spokesman was not immediately available for comment on Monday, and no one answered a phone at the school.
A statement from CIOGC said the group is "appalled at the increasing attacks on Muslim institutions."
"This is not an isolated incident, a few days ago another CIOGC member institution, the Muslim Education Center was also attacked," group spokesman Ahlam Jbara said in the statement.The second attack on an area mosque over the weekend has an Islamic group calling on... more
Pro-marriage group blames the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) hate-labelling for the shooting at the Family Research Center by gay rights activist. Valid point in my view.
The shooting of a security guard Wednesday at the Family Research Council (FRC) has spurred a torrent of heated accusations from both sides of the gay-rights debate about claims that the conservative organization is a “hate group.”
The National Organization for Marriage (NOM), one of the nation’s leading opponents of same-sex marriage, told The Hill the shooting was a direct result of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s decision in 2010 to place the FRC on its list of hate groups for its rhetoric on gays.
Brian Brown, the president of NOM, pointed to a recent blog post by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), one of the largest gay-rights groups in the country. The post, “Paul Ryan Speaking at Hate Group’s Annual Conference,” called attention to the vice presidential candidate’s scheduled appearance at the FRC’s national summit next month.
“Today’s attack is the clearest sign we’ve seen that labeling pro-marriage groups as ‘hateful’ must end,” Brown said in a statement issued following the shooting.
“For too long national gay-rights groups have intentionally marginalized and ostracized pro-marriage groups and individuals by labeling them as ‘hateful’ and ‘bigoted.’ ”Pro-marriage group blames the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) hate-labelling for... more
Heading over to the Southern Poverty Law Center's website, you'll be faced with a header page of ominous, angry-looking "White Supremacists" whom the SPLC suggests are going to rise up, kill all non-Whites and overthrow the government, usually with little or no evidence.
Below, in their featured articles section, you will still be able to read all about the Sikh Shooting Massacre, which of course was perpetrated by a "Neo-Nazi" hater, as well as other articles highlighting the rise of Right-Wing Domestic Terrorism and Neo-Nazi conspiracy theories. Again, usually with little or no evidence
At the time of this writing on Thursday, August 16, 2012, you will not be able to read on the SPLC's website about the Family Research Center Shooting. The shooting was apparently perpetrated by a volunteer of an LGTB group, and at this time, the shooting appears to be a politically motivated hate crime.
This should come as no surprise as the SPLC has labelled the Family Research Center a "hate group," and many media outlets have sourced the SPLC when referring to the Family Research Center in their articles. Apparently, the SPLC claims that the Family Research Center has an anti-gay bias and takes any and every opportunity to link the organization to "hate crimes" and other politically incorrect activity.
This hypocrisy by the SPLC and all of the media outlets that regulary quote the organization as a legitimate source is quite outstanding.
It should also be noted, especially considering that in the past the SPLC's main spokesperson Mark Potok, can often be seen on various media outlets using any shooting to smear any of the organization's political enemies on behalf of the LGTB and anti-2nd amendment groups, whether they had anything to do with the shooting or not.Heading over to the Southern Poverty Law Center's website, you'll be faced... more

A shocking video of a gay student being beaten at Union-Scioto High School in Chillicothe, Ohio, has surfaced reports Channel 6 WSYX news.
In the clip, which was filmed on a cell phone and then posted to Facebook, the attacker, who has not been named, can be seen waiting for the gay student, who wishes to remain anonymous, in a classroom.
Once the student arrives, the bully begins severely beating "the holy living crap out of him," says his mother.
Even though the boy tried to get away and asked "Why are you doing this?" the attack continued.
WSYX reports the student received a possible concussion and a chipped tooth.
The student also says that the perpetrator wrote "Check out the definition of a faggot" on his Facebook page two days earlier.
The attacker received three days suspension, but the mother of the gay student says that is not good enough and she is going to file charges.
She added, "For all those people that have hate in their hearts, they need to let it go because people are going to be who they are."
Anti-LGBT bullying is, sadly, not a new phenomenon and despite a very public outcry in recent months, it continues to rear it tragic, ugly head.
In recent weeks two students, Jamey Rodemeyer and Jamie Hubley, both committed suicide after being subjected to bullying because of their sexuality.
"An anti-bullying bill is pending in Ohio's legislature. Ohio House Bill 208 would add sexual orientation, gender identity, and other enumerated protections to Ohio’s anti-bullying law without changing the general prohibition against any bullying or harassment. Proponents of the bill are seeking testimony in the House Education Committee, according to Equality Ohio, but the bill has not been a priority of the committee."A shocking video of a gay student being beaten at Union-Scioto High School in... more
While Perry and his 3 ring circus of anti-queer hate is gearing up to congratulate each other for passing the buck to Yahweh Elohim in what he’s calling “The Response”, the GLBT community in Houston came together to remember those we have lost to hate and to dedicate a small garden as a lasting place of reflection. This effort was sparked to life as a reaction to a recent murder that took place in Houston. A young gay man named Aaron Scheerhoorn had been stabbed as was running from his attacker. Upon seeing a nightclub, he ran to the club’s entrance seeking help. The doorman turned him away… whereupon Aaron’s attacker pushed him down and in front of dozens of onlookers, commenced to stabbing Aaron over and over again… the onlookers did absolutely nothing to stop the attack and allowed the murderer to escape without hindrance.

Folks, this is what you get when religious wackadoodles are allowed to promote so many things that are contrary to American way of life as defined in the Consitution and upheld by the Supreme Court.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A jury found a North Carolina preacher guilty of stalking a Charlotte abortion doctor after passing out hundreds of "wanted" posters with the physician's name and photo on it.
Jurors deliberated about 90 minutes Friday before finding Rev. Phillip "Flip" Benham, director of Concord-based Operation Save America, guilty of misdemeanor stalking, The Charlotte Observer reported.
Benham, 62, was sentenced to 18 months of probation and ordered to stop any intimidating behaviors.
"I can't speak. I can't get within 500 feet," Benham said outside court, holding his Bible. "They've stolen from innocent babies a voice that has spoken for them."
Prosecutors said Benham distributed photos with the names and photos of several Charlotte doctors who perform abortions and the words "Wanted ... By Christ, to Stop Killing Babies."
Benham knew that doctors in other places had been killed after similar posters were made, Assistant District Attorney Kristen Northrup said.
"What would a reasonable person think if they saw `Wanted' on a poster with their picture on it?" Northrup said.
