    •  From the transcript: (0+ / 0-)
      NANCE: You didn’t tell that one lady that it was to preserve the Caucasian race, because they were becoming a minority? That’s what an old lady down the block told us.

      BRUNSTETTER: No, no.

      •  Keep going... (3+ / 0-)
        NANCE: You didn’t say anything about Caucasians?
        BRUNSTETTER: I probably said the word.
        NANCE: In reference to….? You didn’t tell her anything about Caucasians? …
        I get it.

        Because obviously Brunstetter couldn't possibly be lying here:

        BRUNSTETTER: No, no.
        Of course we all know, no one would ever lie about having said something racist when confronted by a black man with a videocamera. Of course she would have confess on camera and apologized if she had actually said it.

        The only possible conclusion is Brunstetter is just being unfairly bullied by multiple Amendment One opponents who are themselves liars and conspiring to fabricate a story about what they say they heard Brunstetter say.

        Or maybe she just used "caucasian" in a non-racial way. You know, like one says, "I'm more of a fan of caucasian chocolate, than dark."

        •  Admitting using the word "Caucasian" and (0+ / 0-)

          saying that the purpose of Amendment One is to maintain white demographic supremacy are quite a distance from each other.

          •  It seems clear in the video (0+ / 0-)

            she is at least one sandwich short of a picnic.

            I guess witnesses are lying.FYI:

            But Maloy, a freelance writer and editor in Winston-Salem, stood by her account of Jodie Brunstetter saying that the white race is in decline, that whites founded the country and that the country should be preserved as the founders intended.
            I really don't find it so hard to imagine a homophobic, Republican senior citizen in the South would say something racist.

            I understand your mileage varies. Since neither of us were there, I guess we'll never settle it.

            •  It's not a matter of "settling it" (0+ / 0-)

              I don't find it "hard to imagine" her saying something racist either. But that doesn't mean that I'm going to attribute a quote to her based on hearsay when she denies it.

              •  Then don't. (0+ / 0-)
                that doesn't mean that I'm going to attribute a quote to her
                No one is asking you to.
