      Yes, I blog here as harto.

      Thanks for the kind words, unthanks for the unkind ones, and views represented herein might not necessarily reflect those of the author. :-)

      There IS a racist component to this crap, and making the excuse (as they are) that it CAN'T be racism, because they'd treat ANYBODY who disagrees with them the same way has got to be the most pathetic and revealing "argument" I've ever heard.

      If you act like the Grand Kleagle of the local Klan, the burden is on you to prove that you're NOT a racist jerk.

      The way to prove that is by treating other human beings -- even ones we disagree with -- with that fundamental respect that we used to call "simple decency": which is the fundamental compact we made when we decided to forego the "king" and "divine right" jazz and rule ourselves.

      If we lose that, the "king" thing most assuredly comes back -- even (gasp!) despite all the phony puling about "liberty" and "freedom."
