Is it really 2015? Because lately it feels more like, I don’t know. The early twentieth century.
The aspiring anti-Semitic senator is Robert Ransdell, a longtime white supremacist who has spoken at KKK-type rallies and is affiliated with the National Alliance…
“Only about a month until I am on the air, mainstream radio, primed to start a legitimate ‘conversation’ about race, as in a racially conscious White man letting loose on the problems we face, that so many of our people are beginning to wake up to.”
‘And where is this?’ you ask. Kentucky. ‘Oh right – Kentucky.’ Yeah well don’t get too puffed up there, Binky Benetton.
Openly anti-Semitic candidates are not as uncommon in the U.S. as one might think, though they are thankfully relegated to the fringes of the discourse.
Okay alright then, sigh. Go ahead lay it on me. Ahem HERE in America…two, three…We Don’t Tolerate Bigots. Oh, really? Izzat so? Yep, that’s right. Well well, Mr. You Ess of Ehh, aren’t you something? Heh yes, well, Dr. King melting pot. And ON the offhand chance – you will pardon me – that one of these terrible people happens to show up, what do you do with them? Duhh umm…do we do with him? Yes. Yeah well, this – you mean, you don’t know? No. What we do is, we relegate him…to…’the fringes.’ Ta-Daaa! ‘The fringes’ was that? Yes. Really? Affirmative. That’s what you do? You heard me. And you’re serious? I am, most surely. To…’the fringes’?
Todd then asked Carson, whose rise in the polls has been powered in large part by Christian conservatives, if he believed that “Islam is consistent with the Constitution.”
“No, I don’t, I do not,” he responded, adding, “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.”
Ben Carson is as openly bigoted as that Kentucky Jew-hater.
And he’s currently polling in second place. Right behind…Donald Trump.
“Can you imagine supporting or being comfortable if a Muslim ever became president of the United States?” Todd asked Trump.
“I can say that, you know, it’s something that at some point could happen. We’ll see. You know, it’s something that could happen…I mean, some people have said it already happened, frankly.”
