It is no joke

Posted By on Tue, May 20, 2008 at 9:35 AM


This is a clear example of why Mike Huckabee's assassination joke is no laughing matter, though it perhaps helps explain what might cause such subliminal thoughts to arise.

This is the cover of a newspaper in a northern Atlanta suburb. It is over-the-top provocative. It sets up an article that is quite serious about how law enforcement and groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups, have increasing concerns about how white supremacists might react to the candidacy of a black man for president. Internet ravings of these groups, all being closely monitored, can't be ignored as strictly lunatic noise.

I might have chosen a different cover image.

ALSO: Are fears of racial backlash being planted by Republicans?

ALSO, GUN NUT SPECIAL: "The relationship between guns, race and the largely white male membership of the NRA is not incidental."
