  •  Tancredoism is contagious, the KLAN on the rise (1+ / 0-)

       Today, over at CNN'S website, the story was mentioned that the KLAN is on the rise again. Why am I not suprised. The debate on immigration has become foul and vile.  Racial remarks were at one time a true scandal with powerful punishing results for the speaker of racial slurs.  Now, it seems, with the help of hate radio, endless coverage by Lou Dobbs, Glen Beck, and other right wingnut orators, it is becoming part of the national vernacular.  I suspect that a organization like CNN that is buried and shackled in a Red State, would have pressure put on their tv shows to tow the line and not to displease the natives. The southern states are not happy by any means to have their white skin supremecy threatened by an overflood of Mexican immigrants entering their states and changing the power imbalance that guarantees who controls the agenda.  
       Hilary, has increasingly begun to speak against the war. In this age, of 24/7 news coverage, caution at this point in the game is wise, aside from McCauliffe's stupid comments.  Hillary, will have to walk the gaunlet, against all those who dismiss a woman as a viable candidate. She will have to fend off a press corp, that acts like a pack of rabbid dogs looking for the jugular. It is in their own interests to keep the horse race exciting by spewing one controversy after another. She is going to be scrutinized more harshly than any man has before, maybe except her husband, a master of appealing to a broader audience, rather than appeasing singular target audiences that demand their own views be fufilled at whatever the cost to the larger campaign strategy may require.
