Here is the eleventh article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is Jack Hunter, aka The Southern Avenger, because of years of racist rants and ongoing service to one of America’s most deceptive racists.

There was an article here yesterday, I think, Tom, this week anyway, about this particular moron stating flatly that if America EVER becomes less than half white, it will no longer be America. He must have been using some of that "government math" because he is apparently unaware that by 2043 Caucasians will BE less than half of this great country nor does he know that of the children 5 and under in this country now more than half are not white. I hope he secedes all by himself when he finds out the terrible truth which is that this is unavoidable. He could hasten the day all by himself if he left for some white haven, though I don't believe there is one. Thing is, this will STILL be America in 2043, those children are growing up in the freest country in the world (the NSA not withstanding) and they will be fully assimilated Americans as they grow up. Hopefully a better lot than we are currently cursed with now in the Teapublican party. They will have American values, some will be progressive, some will be conservative, but what they will not be, for the most part, is racists. They are a dying breed in this country, this world, and about damn time. Jack Hunter is a blackhearted fool and why he has an audience of any kind will be forever a mystery to me, well, except for his fellow racists that is. The way this country will look in 2043 is inspiring, a multitude of colors, races, nationalities and creeds all focused on freedom for all. It will be a beautiful place and it will most certainly still be America.

Our founding fathers had no desire to include either people of color OR women in the rights they were dictating for this country when the Constitution was written. Maybe this is what these so called "patriots" are trying to uphold ... the original intent of the Constitution. And they honestly believe that that is what the founding fathers wanted for America. To their dismay, the world is becoming one. Slowly but surely, the differences are fading. This gives me hope that some day ... not that I will see it, but someday, the world will live in peace, as one species ... human.

Your 'toon so apply fits the TEApublicants, Cat Man….I love it….I just don't love racist, hate-for-anyone-not-white-not-straight-not-male-not-monied Fascist bast***s in general and I really have no love for supply-side psuedo Xtian Fundy-Baggers. They ARE the American Taliban AND the New Nazi Party as far as I can tell…..just my lil ol 2/100ths.

They fear of what they think is something they are loosing instead of embracing much that will be gained. When we live without fear and look at the one beside us as a fellow sister or brother then we don't worry at what the color of their skin is.
How many times do we see one of these people and write them off as crazy, before we realize there is more going on than just another crazy? A decent respectable member of Congress, no matter what party, should put a wide berth between himself and those who prefer their hats with pointed hoods. When they do not, it is fair to assume there are grounds for agreement between the two.

So many good comments!
Yes, Kit, there is ore going on here than just another crazy. Perhaps the adjective "respectable" ought to be rethought, in regard to this member of congress.
Sadly, there is still a large enough undercurrent of racial and religious bigotry in the country that people can get elected, and re-elected by paying obeisance to same.
Think of the immigration battle going on in congress. Then ask yourselves why the Repugs are taking such a hard stand, making noises about "Not rewarding illegal behavior?"
The Repugs don't care about illegality, that's how they win elections...they just do not want another 11,000,000 non-whites on track to citizenship, AND VOTING!

For most of this World's history whites have ALWAYS been the minority. The only reason this country became CONTROLLED by whites was by the SLAUGHTER of the "Other Color" who occupied, "OWNED" and controlled this land BEFORE THEY CAME !!!!!!!!
IT NEVER WAS A WHITE COUNTRY !!!!!
The HYPOCRISY of this whole scenario just make me want to PUKE, BEAT MY HEAD, RIP OUT MY HEART AND... you get the idea BUT...
Actually I won't do that because I will NOT HARM MYSELF because of THEIR DESPICABLE behavior that would be truly moronic of me and I suspect that such acts on my part would truly GIVE THEM PLEASURE !!!!
OUT OUT OUT JUST VOTE THEM OUT
It will happen sooner or later, let's just make it as sooner as is possible !!!!!!
Vote and HELP OTHERS TO VOTE 2014/16

After listening to Chris Hayes on Rand Paul and Ron Paul and the connection with the 'Southern Avenger', and then Rachel Maddow doing the same and mixing in the likes of Jim DeMint and other likeminded Republicanus/Teabaggers and racist 'advisers', it is in my view evident that Republicanus/Teabaggers pulled a Daniel Webster in selling themselves to the devil to garner votes. They may not all be racists, which I believe, but in the desire for political power, they sold themselves to too many fringe groups that are racist.
