Signs of the Times; Racism Lives Well In The American Right

I can remember a time before Ronald Reagan's presidential campaigns, when people such as that you are about to see, and hear were self-imposed closet racist. They would dare not go public in any way based on an absence of political correctness and possible scorn from millions. Since, Kevin Phillips (Nixon) and Lee Atwater's (Reagan) the US has evolved to a veritable cesspool of bigotry and racism with roots, branches and leaves flourishing in every aspect of our society. We can expect daily exhibitions of such, and to go a week without such reports is a reality of the distant past. 

As recently as last week Michelle Bachmann blessed the nation with another blast of complete race based insanity coupled with typical Bachmann oratory.  
“I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt," Bachmann told conservative columnist Cal Thomas in comments flagged by the Huffington Post. “People don’t hold guilt for a woman."
It seems Bachmann deploys the most shallow approach to combating Hillary Clinton in 2016.

On the opposite end of the scale, we find the likes of Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin. 
"I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame, enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago Communist-raised, Communist-educated, Communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America." Nugent.


Why Palin? She recently reiterated an affinity for Nugent via his campaigning on behalf of a Texas gubernatorial candidate.

So much for those the Right who while guttural, occupy a place at the top of the gutter (e.g., Bachmann). There are some who are complete gutter dwellers comparable to the level of a bottom-dwelling amoeba. We offer one who competes with Nugent for chief amoeba.

The Raw Story

Tenn. official ‘threatened’ blacks with skin ‘trophy’ he saved from 1896 lynching (via Raw Story )
The state of Tennessee has fired a veteran investigator because officials believed that he attempted to use violent stories about how his relatives participated in a lynching to intimidate African-Americans who were trying to file claims against emergency…

Another very crestfallen aspect of what you just read, some of you go to voting booths and vote for the same candidates that love in words full of such people.  Oh, of course, you ridicule  my connect to the GOP and Libertarian Party.  Rather than ridicule, police!  People have full control over the proliferation of racism and bigotry inherent in conservative America.   

While, you may not be able to control the person, you have opportunity to publicly protest their "slime." People do not stand well to public criticism; it tends to change behavior.


I have yet to here or read serious admonition of racist acts for leaders of the GOP nor from celebrity leaders of the Libertarian Party. This, they enable.
