The barely sleeping ghosts of George Lincoln Rockwell, and Nathan Bedford Forrest wake and rear their ugly heads as they always do when some white Americans fear “The Other.”
Of course racists – both vocal and silent – hate Obama. But so does the Financial Elite, and they are using this hatred as leverage to get whatever they want.
Largest inequality in history, 35 years of flat wages, women’s healthcare threatened, and the peckerwoods paint swastikas on Obama’s campaign office in Colorado.
10 to 1 odds says that Mitt and Ryan and aging Republican hacks will say how terrible it is and how unrepresentative of the Republican Party it is to paint Nazi graffiti.
Let me be the last to make irresponsible accusations, but this Republican Party is wallowing in RACISM! Trying to disenfrancise people of color, erecting billboards in South Carolina that refer to the President as The Other. My 10 year old daughter in Savannah, Georgia was asked why she is supporting Obama since she is white.
And it all goes to the benefit of Rove and the Kochs and their ilk – and the neo-cons. The financial elite will use the racism to shovel up even more of our money and our country and the neo-con chickenhawks might get a Mideast War.
By the way, George Lincoln Rockwell ran the American Nazi Party and Nathan Bedford Forrest was a slave trader, the Confederacy’s best general (cavalry), and the founder of the Ku Klux Klan.
We got to rock this shit. Time to turn it all the way up.
