Just When You...

thought it couldn't get any more insane...more madness.

Skinheads plotting to kill Obama. I'm sickened and disgusted because while the whole plot was amazingly stupid, it just underlines the racist attitudes of too many people in the U.S. And yes I get that most of us are not racist skinheads this whole race has brought out all those latent racist tendencies that too many of us possess. There are people who will see the above mentioned, half-assed plot as a reason to vote for McCain. You see the logic being that if we elect Obama he'll just get assassinated so let's vote for the white guy who may die and leave us with a religious extremist in charge. Yeah.

Sometimes, when change is imminent, those who would not benefit from that change become more and more desperate...

The plot was pretty ridiculous. And not all that well thought out.... what's really sad is that a lot of them were kids...

I had to laugh when I read the plot because it was just so dumb but the underlining meaning behind it was sobering it. And yeah it is sad that they are kids, and already so steeped in hate that they engage in these kinds of fantasies.
