I could just hear a meeting called to order at the Heritage Foundation by active members Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and a few owners of Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal. The topic, what to do now that minority births have surpassed our white race’s breeding rates? Can you hear the grunts and groans of outrage that these white powerful men may soon be a minority? It’s simply unfathomable. “Slave ….er…um… waiter, get us some more Scotch!”
Hate-monger and Former Member Andrew Breitbart (Deceased)
We all had hoped with a black president, racial tensions in this country would ease. That’s hardly what has happened. In 2009, threats on the life of our President Obama increased 400%. Unprecedented responsibility has been placed upon our Secret Service to protect him from domestic terrorism.
The seeds of suspicion of minorities and immigrants were planted before President Obama even ran for the office. In 2006, Bill O’Reilly believed there was a secret agenda to allow immigrant amnesty encouraging the “Browning of America”. This was designed to strike terror and fear in the Fox News viewer’s paltry brain. He said, “there is a movement in this country to wipe out ‘white privilege’ and to have the browning of America.” O’Reilly suggested that this “hidden agenda” included plans to let “people who live in the Caribbean, people who live in Africa and Asia … walk in and become citizens immediately.” We can see the effects of this hatred in the booming of membership in the KKK .
In Colorado, membership in their KKK chapters has skyrocketed. Frighteningly, it’s not always just uneducated, backwater bigots exclusively. Cole Thornton, Imperial Grand Wizard of Colorado’s United Northern and Southern Knights Ku Klux Klan group, claims that membership has grown steadily in the past few years.
“I’m really pleased with the kind of people we’re getting in – college-educated, professionals, teachers – even a couple congressmen. People would be amazed to know who I’ve talked with at midnight in isolated areas – it’s almost comical.” Except I’m not laughing one bit. They blame low birthrates of whites, saying “We’re losing them to white homosexual relationships – they don’t reproduce – and interracial marriage – and to abortions on demand. Plus, immigration’s astronomical with Hispanics.” Could this hate-monger mimic the GOP play book any more accurately?
With laws like Stand Your Ground, Voter ID laws and anti-immigrant policies like they approved in Arizona’s and Alabama’s legislature, this hatred of the soon to be majority is only on the rise. Until the economy improves, we run the risk of repeating the hate of the 1920’s and 30’s. If Obama can get some help from a cooperative Democratic majority in his second term, we can quell the volatility that is very apparent in our society today. If that doesn’t happen, guess angry white citizens will have to wait until 2040 when they’re totally outnumbered to fall in line.
