The Anti-Defamation League reported that Georgia Governor Nathan Deal appointed an anti-immigrant activist, Phil Kent to the Georgia Immigration Enforcement Review Board.  

Phil Kent is a white-supremacist and his own words confirm this: "What will be the values and ideas of a multicultural America? What will it mean to be white after 'whiteness' no longer defines the cultural mainstream?"

The ADL also goes on to say that “Kent fears that whites will "flee into whiteness. They will move to where other fair-skinned brethren are to retain their identity – nostalgically yearning for an American authenticity where everyone speaks English.” (

Kent’s thoughts are similar to Nazi propaganda. Especially those disseminated by Alfred Rosenberg i.e., the Nordic Theory. The theory basically states that blacks (or people of color) and Jews are the lowest race in humanity, basically subhuman and the Nordic Race (German and Scandinavian whites) are the highest, in short fully-human.

Taking this theory literally, Germans constantly feared an infiltration of the their race by outsiders and were openly hostile to mixed-marriages, and foreigners within their borders. They believed that their Nordicness had degenerated when they mingled with supposed inferior peoples. This is what Kent fears and his above cited words attest to this. All we have to do is substitute Nordicness for Whiteness.

We all know where this theory led from world history. It gave us nothing more than genocide and blatant discrimination.

We do not need to head down that path again.

That is why Governor Nathan Deal needs to revoke his appointment of Phil Kent to the Georgia Immigration Enforcement Review Board.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
