I posted a note below on the zany Dr. Dobson’s outrage over SpongeBob SquarePants and on the fulminations of the religious right, in the person of Christopher Manion, lewrockwell.com columnist. One of the acolytes over there posted a note indicating shock that I would suggest that Manion is a bigot. Of course not! No animus to gay people at all. No way. (Read through his columns — to which I link in my response — and make up your own mind.)
So when I got in to Texas (I’m in Dallas at the moment) and checked my email and site, I figured I’d go over to lewrockwell.com to see what else they’re up to. Yep, citations of anti-immigration material (of course!) and enthusiastic links to the columns of one Sam Francis, one of the creepiest and most stomach-churning figures on the American political scene. He’s not “racially insensitive”; he’s a proud and outspoken racist. Check out his website and then follow the link to the “Council of Conservative Citizens,” for which he is the newsletter editor. There you’ll find this “Special Photo Essay” (don’t click through unless you have a strong stomach), which is full of photos of murdered white South Africans, accompanied by this:
Terrorism In South Africa
The photos on this page are gruesome and hideous. However, these pictures reveal the terror that looms over White South Africans. Since the African National Conference took power in South Africa, crime and violence have run rampant. Cannibalism is on the rise. White Afrikaan farmers are the prefered targets of black gangs, black political militants, and black bandits. According to well informed sources, the death of Nelson Mandela will trigger a massacre of the White population. Looking at these images, do you believe a slaughter of Whites is not in the future?
Some died in bed, though not peacefully. Unaware of their ghastly fate, these White South Africans no doubt believed they were safe in their homes. But they are not safe anywhere in the country their noble ancestors raised from brute wilderness. The brutes have returned…with a vengeance.
Today South Africa is less than 10% White. Someday, American Whites will be a minority. IT CAN HAPPEN HERE!
There’s more, of course. Francis also offers a prominent link to the openly racist group that calls itself “American Renaissance,” where you can check out guides to “Building White Communities.” (His other links are to: “Middle American News,” which greets you with a warning that “White Americans may soon find themselves unable or unwilling to stand up to challenge the new political methods that will be the inevitable result of the ethnic metamorphosis now taking place in America.”; and to “VDare,” which specializes in bashing immigrants and non-whites and features….Sam Francis!)
Hats off to Lew Rockwell and his friends, for doing their best to debase libertarian ideas by associating them so closely with some of the the worst and scariest people ever to scuttle under a rock. (There’s more under the archives labeled “The Fever Swamp.”)
Now I’m going to go and wash my hands. The experience of sorting through all the dirt that Lew Rockwell churns out has that effect on me.
