Overheard on the Thom Hartmann program

"He's not a white supremacist, he's a white nationalist; he's representing the interests of whites who are still a majority in this country."

-Peter something-or-other, guest on Thom's fight-with-a-right-wing-loon segment
Okay... uh... do white people really need their very own advocacy group? Don't we have a majority-white congress? Hasn't every single president been white (up until this coming January that is)? Don't white people in this country have a history of being in power because in order to make this country whites subverted the power of non-white people? You're really going to try to tell me that continuing to advocate for the straight-white-patriarchal social structure in this country isn't racist? Come on. Wake the fuck up and smell the stench that is all around you. The interests of white people are protected -- our laws have always been written that way. People of color just want to make sure that they are treated equally, and that doesn't hurt white people or denigrate or subvert their interests. Don't fucking cover this shit up by calling it a "rights" group.
