    It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked. It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused America to say enough is enough. ‘I don’t want to see it and I am not a part of it.’ What the hell! If you have to bomb little kids and send dogs out against human beings, give me a break.
    So, to be precise, he did not call the Tea Partiers white crackers. He called some of the southern segregationists of the 1960s white crackers, which is historically correct. But he did say that the politics are the same, and implied that there are white crackers in the Tea Parties.v

    BTW Congratulations. I have never seen a Diarist do a more thorough job of threadjacking his own Diary, starting immediately after the title.
