You'll Never Believe It, But North Kingstown High School Let A Crazy Man Speak And He Said Something Crazy
NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. — A candidate for attorney general in Rhode Island got national attention this week for loudly spelling out the N-word and storming off the stage during a debate at North Kingstown High School.
TMZ posted video showing Alan Gordon, a first-time candidate from the Compassion Party, becoming incensed with his opponent, Democratic candidate and former U.S. Attorney Peter F. Neronha, for using the word “marijuana” during the debate Tuesday morning, as students whooped and cheered.
Gordon is a canon of The Healing Church, a Christian sect that uses marijuana in its religious services. The church considers cannabis a healing drug and promotes the belief that use of the word “marijuana” is racist.
North Kingstown High School, for years, has invited state, federal and local candidates to debate at student-run forums, Supt. Philip Auger said.
WILD story out of North Kingstown (s/o Rhody) this afternoon that truly shows how much the internet loves to freak out.
Being from the next town over, not that far removed from high school this story really hits home. We had countless auditorium assemblies back in 2006-2010 that went awry, I could've very easily seen this with my own eyes back in the day. We had some shit go down at assemblies, kids (me included) would just yell out whatever the hell they wanted to almost no repercussions, it's wild to think in the age of social media how this story from little North Kingstown, Rhode Island made TMZ in like 20 minutes.
This checks all the boxed for a story that will for sure garner eyeballs. At the heart of this story we just have a fucking whack job saying whack job things. Yes this dude spelled out the N word, but this wasn't some racist hate speech. It was something, much, much worse.
Let's take a step back for a second and set the stage.
For some wild reason North Kingstown High School decided it would be a good idea to invite this man inside their walls.
This unibomb looking mother fucker shouldn't be allowed within 500 feet of a school, but he's out here somehow at a debate for Attorney General hosted at NKHS. I'm not usually one to take the side of parent's complaining to schools, but I mean it there was ever a time. I would write such a strongly worded email if my kid was there.
This dude is from the "Compassion Party" which right away sets off some serious red flags. I'm all for inviting real candidates to stuff like this, but come on man this shit is on a fucking weebly page. And it's not even a good weebly page like my website where it's DozOnLife.com because I paid like 40 bucks for the domain name. This dude's party's website is compassionparty.weebly.com/. I'm a fake blogger chasing a barstool pipe dream living on college kid budget and could swing it. This dude wants to be attorney general and couldn't commit the price of dinner explaining his bananaland ideas. How could you take this guy seriously? I bet he has a hotmail email. Very easy, over used email joke there, I'm sorry.
***editor's note that weebly page isn't for his party but I thought was a decent section and I'm leaving it***
I don't know how weed came up in this debate, but somehow in an internet crazy story wet dream we have racial slurs, schools and weed at the forefront. Since it was at a high school you know they aren't gonna use cool terms like jazz cabbage, purp-skurp or bomb-ass-dank-ass, so they gotta call it marijuana.
Being that these are high school kids, obviously they are gonna cheer anytime the word marijuana is said, but then homey comes out of left field spelling the N-word like a mom trying to hide what's from dinner in front of children's face by spelling it out to the dad. Omg how misogynistic of me to make that anology!!!
It's hilarious, they start cheering then it dies really quickly when you actually put together what he said. Take a look:
How can you take someone seriously who legitimately believes the word marijuana is as offensive as the N-word? Like sorry guy, I hang up the phone right there. This dude is a nut. Yeah I have long hair too, and am a big long haired males rights guy, but it's ass holes like this that ruin it for everybody else. Look at this guy and immediately know he's a bum. You'll have the judgment conservatives looking at this guy and saying "see this is why we must keep this miracle plant illegal because of crazy spun out hippies like this!" I'm an even bigger weed guy and believe in it's legit medical benefits, but here we go with nuts like this guy ruining it for everybody.
What I don't understand is the need to spell it out like that analogy I used a few paragraphs ago. Like are you kidding me dude? Just say "the N-word" like a normal person to make your lunatic point and move on like an adult.
Now we have clickbait articles about some nut shouting the N-word at a high school which is simply not the case. We did have a nut at a high school, but he was just triggered over the most ridiculous hill to die on in the history of hills or dying. We have something much worse. Public schools allowing idiots who believe the word marijuana is as bad as probably the worst word in the English language. I'm sorry but how can you respect this guy? Idc what the story about the term marijuana is, unless it involved kidnapping people against their will to become fucking slaves, then I don't think your argument has legs. That goes with almost any bad word. Like obviously you shouldn't say faggot or cunt, but get out of here saying they're at the same level. They're ugly words, and yeah maybe some gay dudes have been killed throughout history by some ass-holes, but it pales in comparison to the triangle trade.
I will defend this dude who's name I've already forgotten for this, he wasn't trying to be racist. I think that matters. His rambling, incoherent rant for sure made everybody dumber, but it wasn't out of hate. No, instead he was showing how marijuana is as bad to say as the N-word. I mean yeah, of course dude, weed has been treated pretty shitty in this country, but not nearly as shitty as black people. Saying marijuana is as bad as the N-word is like saying Slim Jims are better than filet mignon. That debate is over, which seems to be the same for you. Go back to your 1968 Volkswagen house, Alan.
