Stephanie Parker-Weaver, Rest in peace.

Stephanie Parker-Weaver passed away.  She suffered greatly over the last few years from cancer and other illnesses.  Combative at times, while always standing for what she thought was right, is the best way to describe her. May she finally get peace from the pain.

R.I.P. of course. Knowing this thread will soon be inundated by the towel wringers crying foul and suggesting everybody should be quiet and respect the departed....I also know Kingfish expects dissent.

While I hope she is dancing with angels now, while living, she was certainly an advocate for unrest, incivility, disdain for the caucasian races and a beligerant force always ready to stir the pot of community activism and unrest under a banner of perceived discrimination and mistreatment.

But, as an able adversary, she was always willing to tote the banner and advocate for 'the cause'.

Again....R.I.P. Ms Weaver.

Didn't know she had been ill.

Although I was diametrically opposed to every position she took, I still hate to hear of someone dying from disease.

Claire Underwood said...

Good description. Didn't agree with her on much, if anything, but admired her passion.

I've never understood how one can feel another person's actions are grossly misdirected... but at the same time "admire their passion"?

Evers said...

She was a trouble-maker, period.

Karma is a bitch isn't it Ms Weaver...? I sure hope that you aren't jerged by the people that you made a career out of trashing for the sole purpose of sellings papers for tisdale.

7:29pm So you think cancer is bad karma? You think people who have cancer are being punished?

Please go tell that to the children at Batson's!

This is a new low on this website KF.

I'm surprised it got by you.

The comments on posts like this reveal a lot about people. They make their soul completely naked just as they will be someday before God.

Stephanie was a fighter and up front about what she believed as are all good activists no matter what side they are on.

Cancer is a mean, horrible disease that strikes almost every family at one time or another. It has been felt in my family as it has in so many others. Rest in Peace, Ms. Weaver. We know that now you are pain free.

See? What did I tell you in the first post at the top of the page? Enter the towel wringers, moaners and wailers advocating for her soul and respecting her goodness. She was a vile person from the get-go. Anybody who watched her antics for the past twenty five years knows that. But, even the vile of purpose deserve to rest in peace once departed.

9:28 throws a wet rag at those of us who speak our mind openly while at the same time she salutes the departed for having done the same.

BTW, appeal to sympathy is a fallacy misplaced. This has nothing to do with cancer.

6:42, I'll explain it to you. Just because a person doesn't agree with my views, I can still admire how they stand up for what they believe in. I have friends that I disagree with on abortion and gay rights issues. I admire how they defend their positions. However, I will never agree with them. And, yes, we are still friends.

9:57 Not a very good 'explanation' - sorry. Go get another cup of green tea.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
