News Roundup for 8/25/10

Large gathering of klansmen
First annual meeting of the Pam Geller Fan Club

-Headline of the Day-
"White Supremacists Find Common Cause with Pam Geller's Anti-Islam Campaign."

Rightwing lunatic blogger Pam Geller's anti-Muslim crusade is making waves with other rightwing lunatics. In fact, she's quickly becoming the neo-Nazis' favorite Jew. Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center recently took a trip through the racist wingnutosphere and -- you've got to assume after taking a shower -- comes back to report that the farthest-right thinks Geller is just the bee's Aryan knees.

"Geller's views are now also finding support from nearly every sector of America's racist right," Beirich reports. "This is rather surprising because Geller is Jewish, a fact that is normally enough to dissuade radical rightists from too tight an embrace. Apparently, Geller is a Jew the racist right can love." And boy, do they ever.

User "Thunderbird" on the white supremacist site VDARE.com wonders if "notorious right wing conservative Jewish bloggers are... on our side on many issues." Others don't wonder at all. Another user on the site notes that "Jewish Nazi's, Fascists, right wingers etc. are small in number but they can make sense."

Not everyone is a fan, however. But it's not her Jewishness that's the problem, it's that she's not branching out her hate enough. "She singles out Muslim immigrants in Europe for their uncivilized animal-like behavior and likeliness to commit crime," writes a user on the Nazi site Stormfront, "yet she refuses to mention anything about blacks or Latinos in the US... Shame on her."

Shame on her indeed. But don't worry Adolph, she'll get around to it. One hate campaign at a time. Remember your Aesop fables and The Tortoise and the Hare: "Slow and steady wins the race war." (Hatewatch)

-The enemy within-
America is beset by Muslims, commies, and probably the Boogeyman. Everyone knows it's true, so why pretend otherwise? Let it not be said that crazy desert hobo Sharron Angle looked the danger in the eye and blinked. Nosiree Bob, it's time to dance with the devil and she brought her steel-toed tap shoes.

On a talk radio interview with some minor patriot or other, the conversation turned to America's enemies. "We have domestic enemies," said talk radio guy Bill Manders. "We have home-born homegrown enemies in our system. And I for one think we have some of those enemies in the walls of the Senate and the Congress."

"Yes," Angle said. "I think you're right, Bill."

Enemies of America in the House and Senate! OhMyFuckingGodAndDearJesusHelpUsPLEASE!!

Clearly, the time has come for Second Amendment remedies. Which kind of makes you wonder -- why bother with an election? I mean, if you're just going to overthrow the gummint anyway, why waste the effort?

But look at me, expecting Angle's reasoning to make any damned sense at all. Seriously, what was I thinking? (Plum Line)

-Bonus HotD-
"Meet Bruce Majors: The Tea Partier Advising Beck Rally-Goers To Stay Off The Green And Yellow Lines."

This is a whole big thing, but I can boil it down for you pretty easily: insane, horrible, offensive, hate-addicted, racist people really seem to like Glenn Beck. Go see for yourself. (Think Progress)
