Whether it’s mediation, prayer, a good old fashioned trip to the therapist’s office, or all of the above, everyone needs to partake in some soul searching. For those who need a little nudge, I have created a new segment I like to call Time For Some Soul Searching!
Recently the Anti-Defamation League came out with a report stating that the Klan has enjoyed record recruiting numbers by touching on the hot button issue of immigration. Between 2000 and 2005, Klan chapters have grown by 63%, numbers of which the military must be jealous. Maybe the Army should reconsider its slogan from “Be All You Can Be” to “Hey, you might get killed, but at least there’s no Mexicans!!”
How is it that we as a country have become so completely xenophobic that the Ku Klux Klan now seems like a rational option in representing one’s feelings about policy? And what happened to joining the Klan for simple Jew hating?? I mean, do the 76 year old anti-semites look out from the perimeters of the rally, chewing tobacco, reminising about slurs of yester year, thinking as they observe the anti-immigrant noobs, “Well, fuck, Bubba … there goes the neighborhood!”
Who are these people joining the Klan because they have such strong feelings about immigrants? Is there more to it than we know about? Does the Klan offer an amazing health care program or provide collective bargaining agreements on worker’s behalf? Will the Klan match your 401k funds, or assist you in paying for your children’s college education?
For G-d’s sake – as well as for the country – if you are so disgusted with immigrants, let your voice be heard in a less vile forum … become a fucking Republican!
