Racists Let Loose After Obama's Reelection

Full story: Loop21.com
Remember after President Barack Obama was elected the first time, and the media was pushing the idea of a "Post-Racial America" ? One where no white person could possibly be racist, because, look, 43 percent of white folks were suddenly colorblind and gracious enough to vote for the junior Senator from Illinois? One where black folks could no ... (more) Read more

"God I hate that ('f'ing 'n-word'!" , a bit of spittle spraying, not shouting, but with a venom not heard in the news.
North Idaho bar, the speaker a Native American.
He continued, telling me how proud he is to be a Romney supporter, that Mexicans should be rounded-up and killed, that all the money that should go to Native Americans is being stolen by Mexicans.
-- it never occurred to him that Mexicans are Native Americans too.
He said there's a "new building going up" for (some derogatory word for Mexicans that I can't remember as I sit here typing this comment).
I know Romney, nor Mormons (LDS church), does not support racism, nor "rounding people up," nor hatred against people like me, Gay, Disabled, Jew-ish.
It used to make my skin crawl, the vitriol, the venomous remarks. But it's "normal" in these parts. Ever since the Butler Neo-Nazi Compound was prosecuted, it's members held liable, bankrupted (as they should be), it's supporters went IN THE CLOSET, donated a few bucks to a Jewish org or Gay cause to fake not hating us. They memorize 'soundbites' to deny their hate.
"You're damned right I'm a racist!" says the Native American. I suppose there's some type of 'respect' in his not lieing about it.
I showed him my arm, tattoo'd, Star of David, an inverted Pink Triangle, and my Federal ID#, sick of his racist rant and his wish that Mexicans should be rounded-up and killed.
"What! You think you're a WWII survivor! I'm supposed to feel sorry for you? Cuz you're Gay?! F*ck you!" and finally the bartender and his daughter jumped in and asked him to leave before he kicked my *ss for reading my Tanakh at the bar, enjoying a cocktail and a cigarette, minding my own business before he sat beside me to spew hate.
It began as a pleasant convo., and I enjoy meeting new people, hearing different opinions, until they twist things around, assume, and accuse.
I returned to my Tanakh, and the crossword puzzle I was attempting, while enjoying my cocktail and cigarette, freedoms hated for real by religious-extremists, many claiming to be "agnostic," while flaunting HigherEd credentials or spewing Theories as "ultimate truths," like bible-thumpers.
I don't like Obama's policies either. But for the GOP to cozy-up to religious-extremists in the Legislative Branch's 200yr old pissin' match with Democrats, a bi-polar (bicameral) hate-fest, is worse.
Yeah, it's time for change, that's for sure.
Kind Regards, always,
Clayton Winton

(PS> this system won't let me quote reality, forcing me to lie about what I experienced, what I saw, what I heard, claiming it's "offensive" ... of course it's offensive, that's why I'm writing about it. Censorship is evil).
