White Supremacists at CPAC

The weekend’s CPAC convention drew the usual suspects in Michele Bachmann and Ann Coulter with Ron Paul once again winning the presidential straw poll.  But among the participants, and receiving far less media attention that either Bachmann or Paul was the nationwide white supremacist student group Youth for Western Civilization.

The group’s mission statement, according to their website is as follows: “We have the self-evident right and duty to work for the survival of our own culture and civilization.  There is no reason to believe that the advances of modernity and the political freedoms we enjoy will endure with the extinction of the civilization that allowed them to exist.  Western Civilization is our civilization and in spite of the continual assault and hatred it endures from the radical left, we wish to revive the West, rather than see our civilization be sent to the graveyard of history.”

The group’s presence is yet another reminder that the GOP is no longer just flirting with the racist right.  The party has fully embraced it.

Belonging to any racist groop should be a felony offence. I am white by birth, but from everything that history has shown, whites cruelty to other minorities, we are in for a big dose of comeuppence. God created all races and if everyone would work together for the good of all, and knock off all this racism, it would be a wonderful world to live in. God does not intend, nort will He let one race of people dominate the entire world. We have had many wars over this nonscence and it is time we as Americans, should come together and stop all the nonscence. Do you really think, that when you die, only racist people will go to heaven? If you do then you "really have a problem".

Frank who is Shawna Forde? She is a women who was not allowed in the Minuteman's realm in fact she was thrown out. And what she did was create her own little unit that was in it for the drugs and money, she ripped people off knowing they had these items, and just so happens these folks did not comply with what she demanded so she killed them. Now may she rot the rest of her days in jail for this deed, all this will come out in court if you care to follow it watch. As of this day i have not heard anyone who belongs to the minuteman cause has killed anybody as of yet. She used its name for her own mis-deeds period. A believer of CHRIST you say??????

"What makes this nation a wonderful nation,and one of the greatest nations on earth,is were a nation of laws.” Shawna Forde states on youtube video below

This right-wing lunatic stated this before one of her cohorts went and put put bullets at close range into a nine year old girls head! But now justice has been done, as she has been convicted of murder and may well face the death penalty. It looks like her own words, have come back to haunt her!

Someone is lying! Statistics confirm that Glen Beck and other right-Wing talk radio mouthpieces, are indeed going out of favor in America!

Is Right-Wing Talk Dying?
by John Avlon Info

Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh are losing fans in a key market. John Avlon on why listeners and station managers are sick of anti-Obama tirades—and who bucks the trend. “anti-Obama tirades—and who bucks the trend.

“Here’s another sign that the tide might be turning against the Wingnuts—Glenn Beck’s TV ratings are down 50 percent and major market radio stations are dropping him.”-thedailybeast.com

"That’s not all—a look at radio ratings shows that hyper-partisan talk has been declining or flat-lining between ‘09 and ‘10, despite the intensity of the election year.”-thedailybeast.com

“Likewise, year-end to year-end comparisons of the crucial 24 to 55 demographic show that Rush declined from 3.7 to 2.6—while his packaged follow-up acts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin narrowly declined and flat-lined, respectively.”-thedailybeast.com

"Scary for our future. Pay close attention!!! The third world is coming much sooner than later!"-Patricia S.

I presume your speaking about the coming "third world war" which the right-wing republican lunatics would love to lead us into Patricia. You are well within your rights to follow a wolf in sheep's clothing like Glen Beck if you wish. But as for me, I place my trust in The Lord Almighty! Never, will I place my trust in someone whom uses the Name of The Lord in vain, without realizing that the world perceives him only as a great big hypocrite!
