Just When Life Seems Good

. . . some racist anti-Semite has to go and start shooting in the U.S. Holocaust Museum.

Dude is 88 years old. My grandmother is that age, and she's frail and doesn't walk, hear, or see so well. But this guy, blessed with robust health in his late 80s, chooses to use it to bring a rifle into the Holocaust Museum and shoot a guard. That is so many kinds of unfair.

That's terrible. *Why* do people hold such extreme, bigoted views?

Here in the UK, we actually elected two members of the BNP (anti immigration, anti Jews, anti black, anti gay etc) as members for the European Parliament. How can anyone vote for these people?

Does the BNP actually stand for anything?

British National Party. (I think.)

Apparently they don't allow non-white members. Bunch of morons.

I doubt they'd have got in in a first-past-the-post election - but the MEP elections are proportional, so all the bigots got counted together.

One person (in the South East) stood for the Roman Party - summed up on the voting form with the word 'ave'. I wonder how many people voted for him. More, I suspect, than you would think. It was a very long list and many don't take the European elections very seriously.

If the guy from the Roman Pary was actually elected, I would expect him to show up to work in a toga every morning.

Maybe that's why he did it. Maybe it was a fraternity prank, a toga party on a continental scale. To-GA! To-GA! To-GA!

They say they're absolutely, totally *not* racist - but want Britain for the British, England for the English - as long as they're white, of course. All non-whites can just be sent back to where they came from. As many black and coloured people in the UK were born here, I'm not sure where that leaves them ...

Strung up in trees, if racist parties had their way.

There seems to be something about being insane that allows said nutters to maintain good physical health. Still, at least this is one nutter who won't be around polluting the internet any longer.

I saw a clip on TV earlier where he blamed a Jewish judge and black jury for convicting him and sending him to jail about twenty years ago. I daresay he'll come up with similar complaints when he's locked away this time, too.

I figure he should get twenty-five years for killing that guard. Even as healthy as he is, he probably won't live out that sentence.

It's depressing and discouraging, disheartening and disgusting. On top of the Tiller murder, it's also somewhat foreboding.

The fuckers are just coming out of the woodwork, aren't they? And this a month after some other fucker shot a Jewish college student at the bookstore where I used to work.

It seems like there is always some new nutjob out there. It gets discouraging.

Apparently, having the economy tanking and Obama being President is just riling up all the hate groups in the country. Just what we need right now. Feh.
