In order for this to be a hate crime it would have to be more than just a dumby dressed at Palin there is scientific proof that there is a fine line between love and hate... So with hate is passion. Hate is a real emotion triggered in the brain the same way we love. So no way no how was this a hate crime!

Its a dumb ass statement or expression of a emotion not known as hate. More along the lines of bigotry or shovenism.


Quote:
"As far as we can determine it is unique to the sentiment of hate even though individual sites within it have been shown to be active in other conditions that are related to hate," the researchers wrote.

The so-called hate circuit includes structures in the cortex and the sub-cortex and represented a pattern distinct from emotions such as fear, threat and danger, Zeki said in a telephone interview.

One part of the brain that switched on was an area considered critical in predicting other people's actions, something that is likely key when confronting a hated person, the researchers said.

The brain activity also occurred in the putamen and insula, two areas activated when people viewed the face of a loved person. Scientists have linked the regions to aggressive action and distressing situations, Zeki said.

But there were important differences as well. A bigger part of the cerebral cortex -- an area linked to judgment and reasoning -- de-activates with love compared to hate.

While both emotions are all-consuming passions, it may be that people in love are often less critical and judgmental about their partner but need to maintain their focus when dealing with a hated rival, the researchers said.

"It is more likely that in the context of hate the hater may want to exercise judgment in calculating moves to (cause) harm," Zeki said in a statement.

I'll take those folks word for it...

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27439385/

it seems its going on all over the place. Obama & Palin. Albeit the Obama effigy's get the tree treatment and Palin gets a house. It seems women are getting the better end of the deal when were talking hanging effigies. :lol:

I think it should be illegal to bring shit like that into the polls. If you can’t vote with your own brain stay home.
Just found out it is illegal.. This is a form of voter intimidation.. Could you please PM me the address of the polling station. I will be in Gainesville tomorrow on work & would like to stop through get a copy of the paper & take a couple photos of the people handing them out..

Did you know the Military is preparing for Riots if Obama loses!!

Yes.....if he loses there will be violent riots bc some people are just plain ignorant in this society.... if he WINS there will still be riots but it will be the kind of riots like the sports fans causes--- sucks either way---


But yea dude should have never put that in his yard-if it was obama people would be calling it a racial hate crime- so yea its wrong (but i still laughed at the creativity of it lol)


There are ignorant people in both parties- not just the "obama" side. BC Ive ran into several jackasses who is voting for Mccain bc he is white and they dont want a "black" man as our president. When I ask them questions about what they know of mccain they said they dont care. Sooooo there are just stupid people altogether

here is what i would suggest. Since you seem to be confused on what words and or phrases mean you might want to swing by dictionary.com .

here is the actual definition of a hate crime

a crime, usually violent, motivated by prejudice or intolerance toward a member of a gender, racial, religious, or social group

(note; it didn't mention politics)

an effigy is image of a religious figure. usually placed in a church. A unpopular figure or politician is called a tableaux

now with that said i will address this boards horrific lack of history for the 18,166th time. For real, what school did you people go to?

Here are a list of figures that are hung or burned on a regular basis yet no mention from the peanut gallery.

Guy Fawlkes - has a holiday in England in which the country burns him. November 5th. You might have seen it in a movie and cheered for this Catholic hero. Remember Remember the 5th of November.

The Pope, any pope usually alongside Mr Fawlkes

Abe Lincoln

Gen. Sherman

Bin Laden

Bush 1 & 2

it is a complicated world out there. Please before you react again please read hand manual.
