Re: “Ocean Grove to Host More Murder Music

No Terrence you are wrong about who i am, and you are a great troll and bully. It is becoming your M.O. on facebook and now here on NCJ. Never the less i live in this community as well and have a valid opinion, about the story, just like you and everyone else on this thread. No matter if we agree or not. it is what it is.. and now,back to you- "King of one ups and last word" take it away Terrence--->

Re: “Ocean Grove to Host More Murder Music

Bonus will keep pushing to maintain his status as a promoter, in fact all this pressure only gives him more family credit with the artists he is bringing here. I m not telling anyone what to do- boycott, protest, support the show or not...but- censorship is a slippery slope. Many Many Corporations, and Companies- much bigger than Ocean Grove should as well be targeted for boycott- that is unless the local LGBT community only wants to target small and local businesses.... Companies such as EXXON Chick Filet URBAN OUTFITTERS Walmart Salvation Army and Quicksilver- To Name a few... Don't even get me started on who the heck is funding hateful agendas in politics- it will never end- and in that endless never ending we will have nothing to buy, eat, drive, or be entertained by- at least not anything that costs money. The corruption of humanity cannot be stopped with band-aids- we must reeducate and teach tolerance and help people to understand our likenesses and differences. in my opinion.

Re: “Capleton's Red Fox Tavern Show Canceled ... but the fyah's still comin' (UPDATED, NEW VENUE)

What's next? Book Burning/Banning? Art is an expression you don't have to expose yourself to it if you don't want to. education is key people are raised/indoctrinated to have certain beliefs and the only way to help them become more compassionate is to give them the opportunity to embrace new information and values, allow them to face their own fears that feed into their hate . People that preach hate or murder of others because of a way of life, sexual orientation, or religious belief set etc...- are people filled with fear and trauma. It is what it is- RFT dropped the show due to pressure by the local LGBT community- and to show their own solidarity with The LGBT community. B Swizlo is a kind, tolerant , talented and loving part of the Humboldt County Music Community. Someone else WILL pick up the show- i recommend all that oppose the event to arm yourselves with love and information and canvas the event outside.

i believe that paper proclamations such as the above posted law serve with the intent to mend fundamental failings in our social structure and do not change the way people think and or act. We should work to change intolerance from the root- the way people are raised, taught, indoctrinated and educated are what determine the types of behaviors they express- not the laws written in the land they live.

The issue here is education, you don't change someone by force- you give them the education and information to come to have new values. You have compassion and forgiveness for them( even if they do not have it for you) and give them the ability to change. Art is an expression.An ever changing expression of a persons view of the world they live in. To censor Art is similar to supporting Anti-Gay legislation do you understand?

I do not believe in censoring art. some artists make statements of hate, or mis- information. mostly due to thier own upbringing and indoctrination. Some artists learn new ways and change thier lyrics or avoid songs from thier repetoir that no longer represent thier view. Other artists paint picture with words- expressing everything-weather they agree with the view point or not. Forgiveness and education is a huge step in ending hate. I think the gay community should- a not go to the show if they don't like it, or encourage tolerance. If the Humboldt gay community is in the business of censorship I think they have their work cut out for them,everyone has at one time or another failed to be tolerant. what's next? stopping people from expressing how they feel? Demanding that art that expresses homophobia be banned? Where does it end? "promote what you love rather than bashing what you hate" -unknown
