In the wake of the blatant racism of SC GOP operative over the weekend, comes more of the same from a Tennessee GOP State Senator. From thinkprogress.org: thinkprogress.org/2009/06/15/racist-image-
It's amazing that these toads get so offended when they are called out for their racism and prejudices. Read also the lame response that is an explanation or half-as#$ed apology. The GOP IS a party of extreme right wing white bigots mainly in the south...REALLY. I hope they keep this klind of stuff up. NO matter what, the Democratic party will keep majority for years to come.
The time for this Klan era, Jim Crow bigotry has come and gone. As a Southerner, I cannot accept that we have people that want to return to this sort of divisive, hateful bigotry. (There's plenty of this virulent strain up North and West folks, too...it is anti-immigrant, anti-minority, non white, based in fear and xenophobia, but it is an art form in some pockets of the "Old South.") To quote Neil Young:
better keep your head
what your good book said
gonna come at last
Now your crosses
are burning fast

“Life is short, Break the Rules.
Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY.
Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably
And never regret ANYTHING
That makes you smile.”
