Delbert Belton served his country, like so many young men did who were probably not much older than the two 'reported' teens who killed him in N. Spokane, Washington.

Delbert "Shorty" Belton


He grew up during the depression.

He survived WWII and Okinawa, despite sustaining wounds there when he was most likely 19 or 20.

He lived to see a time when grown men 10 years or more older than he was back then, in a time when he was slogging around like my own dad did in the Pacific, experiencing death, disease, and the horrors or war on a daily basis, now seeing a new generation of "men" now living off taxpayer-funded subsidies and staying at home with their parents.

"Men" who looked upon his generation with contempt and disdain.

They called him "Shorty" and people say he was "full of life".

That life was taken from him, reportedly, by 2 young punks who beat an old man to death for who knows why?

UPDATE - The suspects:


I don't know if the president will say anything about it.

I don't know if the race-hustlers will dare mention it.

They always operate in the context of racial politics and exploitation - whether the issues are real or not. And yet when the issues ARE real - they duck and hide.

I don't know if the national media will think it worth covering. Although I'm sure had this dear man had a gun to defend himself, the story might be far different - and of more interest to these people.

But Shorty didn't, couldn't defend himself, and now he is dead. Another veteran gone - although not in the way you'd expect. Or maybe now we should, as there are actually people out there that would just have people like Shorty get out of the way.

And there is a sickness in this fundamentally-transformed America we now live in. A sickness not only in the barbarism we see in segments of the population but in the disgraceful way in which some people respond, or don't respond, to it.

This is only one example of what is happening - but how awful it is.

In our America.

And meanwhile the entire fucking right-wing blogosphere wonders why we didn't fight for the Axis instead.

This statement is not only false, and vulgar -- but also irrelevant.

Are you going to go over to Vox Popoli and tell them how false and vulgar they are?
Aug. 23rd, 2013 03:16 pm (UTC)
Oddly enough, Vox Populi commented directly on the specific story


and you will notice that he clearly regarded the Nazis as bad, even though his own opinions are definitely racialist (he believes that black Americans are biologically, rather than merely culturally, more inclined to commit crimes). Thus, he directly falsified your specific argument, while still demonstrating his racism.

The weird thing about your mode of reasoning, Yama, is that if you had a good mental editor to match your wild connections between one idea and another, you'd be a genius, rather than a madman.

Vox is inconsistent as all fuck when it comes to his statements about Nazis. In another entry, he praised their ability to purge the greater Reich of 25,000,000 inhabitants and suggested we do the same.

Really? Show me this entry ...

I followed the links. Vox did not express approval and admiration for the Holocaust; he was answering the statement of somebody else that the mass deportation and/or murder of millions of immigrants was impossible. Vox (quite correctly) pointed out that Hitler did it to millions of better-integrated members of ethnic groups which he wanted out of Greater Germany; hence we could easily deport millions of poorly-integrated Latin American immigrants.

Unsurprisingly, you completely missed the point.

He said Hitler was worth emulating.
Aug. 24th, 2013 01:03 am (UTC)
Specifically, he said that we should deport illegal Hispanic immigrants, and that it was certainly possible because Hitler managed to do far more to far more people and far more integrated ones.

Did you know that when America launches rocket ships, we use the same laws of physics that Werner von Braun used to launch V-2 ballistic missiles against London? Heck, we even used Werner von Braun HIMSELF to help design our first rocket ships. And von Braun was originally-employed by Hitler.

Maybe we should forget about launching rocket ships. It's too Nazi a thing to do ...

And Hitler disposed of them by killing them. Vox Day wants the same thing.
Aug. 24th, 2013 01:12 am (UTC)
I don't know what VD wants in his heart of hearts, but in his post he spoke of deportation, not killing.
Aug. 24th, 2013 01:20 am (UTC)
Oh, like when the Jews were "deported?"
Aug. 24th, 2013 01:22 am (UTC)
No, VD is arguing for actual deportation. Not for murder disguised as deportation. You don't know the difference?
Aug. 24th, 2013 01:24 am (UTC)
I'm not sure I trust Vox.
Aug. 24th, 2013 01:29 am (UTC)
Trust him or not, one can only agree with or disagree with what he actually says. It is utterly pointless to make up a strawman-Vox and have an argument with this entity.
Aug. 24th, 2013 01:23 am (UTC)
Specifically, VD said

Instant deportation policies, employer fines and bounty programs combined with the denial of all social services to non-citizens would suffice to settle the matter without the need to imprison the American citizenry.

None of this involves any murders.
Aug. 23rd, 2013 04:29 am (UTC)
It's not our America anymore. That dream gave it's death-rattle in 2012.
Aug. 23rd, 2013 05:51 am (UTC)
I devoutly hope those two young bastards resist arrest.
