  •  I don't think this is just hate, Deo. (10+ / 0-)

    I think this is the cold, calculated voicing of right wing and Republican sentiment without prettying it up for public consumption because they believe it sells.

    And in a time of anxiety and uncertainty, it does.  

    They know exactly what this is and bank on people going after scapegoats during hard times.

    Hate, yeah.  But also highly rational white supremacy trying to reinforce its power.

    Thank you for this diary.

    •  Have you ever read translations of Der Sturmer? (4+ / 0-)

      That was the Nazi race rag.

      Pretty much the same language.

      You may not have known that the Nazis were civilized people who were totally against using animals for experimentation.  Hitler passed at least 3 laws against animal cruelty.

      Since Jews were considered a deformed lesser human, experimenting on them was perfectly acceptable.

    •  Sigh. you are probably right (8+ / 0-)

      Radio Sis.  What is scary is that this stuff is like a hunting license for haters..

      •  This is what's been festering for (5+ / 0-)

        a long, long time and is now openly expressed with almost no vocal/visible outcry from faith leaders, politicos of both parties, etc.

        It is scary, Deo.  However strong this is, we are stronger.

        But the pushback against open racism is too small.

        Because this has created a climate in which the folks at the top who want to retain their race/class privilege say and do things that truly disturbed individuals act upon.  And then the big guys wash their hands of it - when, in fact, they encouraged and enabled violence.

        Time for new ways of exposing/organizing against this.

        A discussion to be continued.
