“We grow good people in our small towns, with honesty and sincerity and dignity.”   Certainly an interesting quote from Sarah Palin’s RNC acceptance speech.   The quote is originally attributed to Westbrook Pegler who was a racist and specifically anti-Semitic.    Today Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.  had something to say about the quote.  You can find his remarks at the Huffingonpost.com :

“Fascist writer Westbrook Pegler, an avowed racist who Sarah Palin approvingly quoted in her acceptance speech for the moral superiority of small town values, expressed his fervent hope about my father, Robert F. Kennedy, as he contemplated his own run for the presidency in 1965, that ‘some white patriot of the Southern tier will spatter his spoonful of brains in public premises before the snow flies.’

It might be worth asking Governor Palin for a tally of the other favorites from her reading list.”

Keep in mind that African Americans made up only 36 of the 2,380 GOP delegates at this year’s RNC, the lowest number since conventions began tracking 40 years ago.   In the speech Palin also mocked community organizing.  One wonders whether Palin or her speechwriters gave any thought to the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

The Pegler line used in Palin’s speech was also quoted glowingly by Pat Buchanan in his book Right From the Beginning

Strangely enough the Palin speech was supposedly written by Matthew Scully.  Time claims that Scully wrote at least parts of the speech before Palin was chosen by McCain.   Here is the next strange twist.  Scully is an animal rights advocate.  In fact, he’s a vegetarian, hates the NRA and has fought against certain types of hunting, including aerial hunting, which Palin supports.  Here is a review of a book written by Scully:

“Dominion (written by Scully) is a horrible, wonderful, important book. It is horrible in its subject, a half-reportorial, half-philosophical examination of some of the most repugnant things that human beings do to animals…. The book is wonderful in its eloquent, mordant clarity, and its hilarious fillets of sanctimonious cant and hypocrisy…. Dominion is important in large measure because the author, an avowed conservative Republican and former speechwriter for George W. Bush, is an unexpected defender of the animals against the depredations of profit driven corporations, swaggering, gun-loving hunters, proponents of renewed ‘harvesting’ of whales and elephants and others who insist that all of nature is humanity’s romper room, to play with, rearrange, and plunder at will…. This is a beautiful book, and a balm to the scared, lonely animal in us all. — Natalie Angier, The New York Times Book Review

Sounds like Matthew Scully is to animal rights advocates what Log Cabin Republicans are to LGBT Americans.    But what is the deal with the Pegler quote?  Why quote a racist & mock community organizers during such a white-faced convention?  

I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that McCain is running against a man with dark skin.  I’m sure that it wasn’t a secret squirrel code or was it?

You just have to go over there to read it.   The whitey white right-wing nut cases at Free Republic have their panties all in a wad worrying that Rodney King gangs are going to riot if Obama does not win. 

If you think this is something, you should read what the polar bears are planning if McCain and Palin win!

Circle the wagons and read some of their plans: 

I’m not answering for ZULU, but from experiencing fighting the rioters in Newark, N.J. in ’67 & ’68. They don’t leave their neighborhoods, but attempt to burn & steal everything from all businesses in them. They will also shoot at any white person who happens to be there, or passing through.

I live in silicon valley, in a working class neighborhood, mostly hispanic and mostly homeowners rather than renters. I have 2 kids under 9 years old, so it would be important to have a safe trigger lock thingamajiggie. For me, money is very tight right now, so I am focusing on Minimal Outlay in terms of weapon purchase and ammunition. In addition, when this all blows over and it turns out to be nothing (which I’m hoping for, like the Y2K scenario), then I would have a fun little plinker gun to go out into the woods and enjoy. So I’m thinking of buying a 0.22 rifle with a scope, maybe 1000 rounds of ammunition. I’m thinking of semi-auto, perhaps with a lever discharge. I intend to buy whatever is cheapest at Big 5 Sporting Goods or Walmart.

Please keep in mind that there are thousands of lurkers who know that they have the RKBA but are a little bit nervous about buying and owning a weapon. These are not seasoned shooters. I doubt a shotgun would be the right weapon for such neophytes.

It would be a big mistake for them to venture out of the Hood, but that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t. After all, there is more to steal and burn in the “nicer” neighborhoods, and they won’t really care much about the color of the folks who own that stuff.

I keep a range finder and a night scope with the M1A along with a Police Sniper 700 Remington .308. I have also ranged the bullet drop all over my property and the set up the best places from where to shoot; upstairs dormers. I keep foliage cut away from the house for at least 50-75 yards to keep the shots clear and have motion lights on the corners of the house. There is a 75 yard entrance driveway and one can only drive down the way to get to the house. Fences keep those within the driveway. Its taken years of preparation but one never knows.

Any individual should be able to equip themselves with this type of weaponry for under 1500.00 dollars and not attract a whole lot of attention while doing so. With the money one can save using this list as a guide, a motivated person should be able to become quite competent with all of the firearms listed here for less than 3000.00.

Polar Bears Are Expected To Eat White Children If McCain / Palin Win

But they would be unlikely to go to residences in that case (too much risk of getting shot). It would be more like several carloads of thugs pulling up to a suburban store or bank, pulling out guns, grabbing what they can, and scooting back to sanctuary in the ‘hood.

If there were a lot of them, and they outgunned the police, then after the first few incidents we might find the police rather slow to respond.

And then they may call their gang members from other planets who will beam all white skinned people back to their unGodly world for sexual relations with very weird looking but nicely curved aliens.  

Down Boys!  Down!

When Freepers were told of the planned Polar Bear riots should McCain / Palin win, the Freepers claimed to have it all under control:

“That’s no problem, we have the Log Cabin Republicans signing up Polar Bears left and right.  You know their fur just looks white because of the sun so even though we’re gonna sign ’em up, we don’t actually plan to let them join.  We’re gonna give ’em just enough attention so that we can get them when we vote our folks in office.” 

Minneapolis and St Paul – the Republicans are coming.   Let’s do a little wife swapping and hiding our homosexuality just to make them feel right at home.   Wonder if there will be a tour of the Larry Craig Tap Dance Stall during the Republican National Convention? 

In other bat-shit crazy Republican news, the very queer Living-in-a -Fog Cabin Republicans have issued a statement.  Do these gay guys and the one lesbian in the group just stay together to annoy the real Republicans? 

Statement of Log Cabin President Patrick Sammon about Gov. Sarah Palin

“Alaska Governor and all around sweet gal Sarah Palin can help Sen. McCain win this election by using her good looks and thin resume to appeal to voters who spend their entire day glued to Fox News and/or sleeping.  She’s a mainstream Republican girl who will shoot anyone who crosses her, unite the Party and service John McCain well when Cindy McCain is not looking.   She has yet to decide what a Vice President does but as soon as she memorizes the duties we will issue a new statement.  Gov. Palin is an inclusive Republican who will not accept contributions from gay or lesbian voters and we love her shoes.”
