    Arkansas School Official Declares on Facebook He Wants Gays Dead

    http://www.shewired.com/Article.cfm?Section=1&ID=26003

    He is a board member and cannot be fired because he was elected but there is a FB page that may keep you up to date on this issue. People are going to try and put pressure on him to resign:

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fire-Clint-McCance/170421922968484

    You can actually call the guy. Someone actually posted his phone number on that FB page. His home number and business number is listed on the wall when you include other posts. Does anyone think they can convince him to resign?


    Request his Resignation:

    And your point is?

    Sometimes you let your ideology get in the way of your common sense.

    Oooh, this is going to be fun, watching this man lose his job, his business, maybe even go on some drunken homophobic rage and end up driving off a cliff or something.

    Ah.....viral justice is so COOL!

    Don't be so sure about justice:

    http://abovethelaw.com/2010/10/michigan-assistant-ag-andrew-shirvell-goes-on-leave/#more-38243 [Michigan Attorney General Mike] Cox told CNN he didn’t intend to fire Shirvell, citing civil service rules that protect government employees from being “fired willy-nilly” for exercising their rights of free speech….

    “I’m at fault here,” Cox said. “I’ve been saying for weeks that (Shirvell’s) been acting like a bully, that his behavior is immature, but it’s after-hours and protected by the First Amendment.”


    On the other hand, school board members can be voted out of office.

    The school board web site removed the posted school board meeting dates and the contact information and names of the board members. I looked at their minutes and it only seems to list financial data. In California, that stuff is public record and there are requirement to post meetings, etc. The public has a right to know when public school board meetings are. In California, I think that removing that information would be a violation of the Brown Act.

    Does anyone here know if Arkansas has a similar law?

    Common sense? SB?

    SB has probably already sent a congratulatory note to McCance.

    Ooh hell yea I hope so, would be absolute justice if he'll end up with a DUI and a hit and run, and then he can go off at those "fags" in prison who are gonna drill his corn hole on a regular basis.

    Nope, that's Arkansas. They play by different rules. If he has a son, that son will come out of the closet and admit to being molested by him as a child.

    I'm really disappointed in this. Why even comment at all if you can't see the problem here?

    I'm not sure if I agree with the posting of this man's address and telephone number. He could have children who are completely innocent and what if some idiot goes after his family.

    That's not call at all. He should be fired, but they can't.

    As a native Arkansawyer, I must say that there's truth in what Paul writes. Not so much Little Rock, which is surprisingly progressive (and CERTAINLY not uber-faboo Eureka Springs, an oasis of queer sanity in the middle of WalMartWorld!), but the rest of the state? Yikes!

    No wonder the GOP's "Southern Strategy" worked so well in Arkansas. Not exactly direct descendants of Roosevelt's Brain Trust, if you catch my drift...

    Sorry dude, I'm gonna go disagree with you here.

    Collateral damage, and perfectly acceptable. Let them feel what it's like to be hated. Maybe it will turn their narrow redneck minds around. And if it doesn't, I still don't give a fuck.

    Yep. Frankly, they should take his kids (if any) away from such a hatemongering fuckstick.

    I hope this man gets what is coming to him and that he is exposed to ALL for this sort of hate-mongering. I realize this is only just going viral today, but I hope it's on the evening news across the country by tonight.

    I'm sure that people will make the free speech clause and that is perfectly acceptable. But, one's free speech, if taken for granted and used in such an insidious tone and manner, do have consequences. He should have known that making such disgusting statements would have surely gotten around, especially this day in age of FB, Twitter, the Internet, and cell phones. He will surely pay the consequences in this life and hereafter.

    If this man has children, I feel very sorry for them. Imagine how they would feel if they were gay and heard their father talk like this. Think about the children attending the school district he represents who hear this. How safe would you feel?

    On what planet are kids considered collateral damage. You after that person not that person family! That's crazy and a bit cowardice.
    For the record not all kids turn out to be a carbon copy of their parents.

    One of my ex-roommates in college, who's parents were the most racist people that I ever knew was anything but.

    If you think that there aren't any homophobic Democracts you need to leave "Wonderland Alice".

    They'd feel like killing themselves. icon_neutral.gif

    When it's a choice between being kicked out of your home by your family or suffering their hatred from day to day silently... there's not much youth can do, unfortunately.

    I tried calling this # and the box is full. Me thinks this asshole is having one VERY BAD DAY today. I'm sure it's only just begun. Oh the wrath that going viral can wreak.

    JUST made Arkansas local news site:

    http://www.kspr.com/sns-ap-ar--anti-gay-schoolboard,0,1300513.story

    McCance says "it has been blown out of proportion".

    Oh no baby, you aren't going to recant and say something stupid like "I should not have said that" and get away with it. What's in your heart comes out your mouth, and you are going DOWN buddy. icon_wink.gif
