Very Weird, Or Maybe Not

Okay, I was trying to write something about the new ad by anti-gay lunatics NOM – they of the Colbert Report's "A Storm Is Gathering" spoof – arguing their rights will no longer matter when gay people can get married. But when I typed in www.nationalorganizationformarriage.com – try it! you'll like it! – I got the homepage for the KKK: "Bringing a Message of Hope and Deliverance to White Christian America!"

Where to begin? White Pride TV's "This Is The Klan," reporting on "issues of concern to those of European descent," especially white women and "racially aware young people"? Klan-themed hats, t-shirts, jewelry? Klansmen ceramic statues with blood drop logo, a "nice display item" with or without its lighted eyes? Shipping in the U.S. free, add 40% elsewhere. Really.

 

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
