For anything the Pat Buchanans and Rush Slimebaughs of the world say that makes a lick of sense, they will always couple it with a ton of deranged right-wing rhetoric loaded with plenty of bigoted racial undertones. For example, hit link at bottom for Buchanan’s column from today.
Such column is chock full of all kinds of sick bigoted rhetoric about "white racial consciousness visibly beginning to rise" and that when racial issues rear their ugly heads, "most folks will wind up with their own." I denounce these types of racist suggestions, just as I do the pathetic race-baiting recently exhibited by the NAACP & the democrat party. It’s all complete and utter MINDLESSNESS, folks. Open your minds and recognize it as such.
And my sentiments make me absolutely NO friends in the political blogosphere (dominated by right-wingers and left-wingers), rather only enemies. But frankly, I couldn't give a flying F*ck. America at its core is a wonderful nation -- in my opinion the greatest nation in the history of the earth -- and yet it is controlled by two out-of-touch extremist parties who represent tiny little minorities of the population who go around trying to use the issue of race to get members of the majority to vote for them.
It’s pure anti-intellectual ugligness which I have observed now for almost four decades. I can only dream that someday this dynamic will change. For we have NEVER been since the Civil War a nation divided by race, but rather always one since then that's been inherently blessed and in majority part united in our wonderful diversity (even if all the bigots and extremists on both sides since then, plus the incredible power of the southern KKK pre-1970, have tried their best to incessantly change that). But these days, both of our two illustrious political parties very much seek to change that as well. A very sad and sick state of affairs.
