What They Really Mean

Abby Zimet

You have to wonder: The summer just past has been so full of
hate-filled, fear-whipped, over-the-top wing-nuttery - vitriolic town
halls, witch-doctor emails, red-scare rhetoric, irrational resistance
to a program that will Help You If You Get Sick, and, lest we forget,
youth indoctrination camps - could it be that in truth it's all because
many Americans remain hopelessly, mindlessly, terrifiedly racist and
have thus gone bananas because our President is, in fact, a black guy?
Could it be that simple and scary? Jed Lewison at Daily Kos offers a picture that says it's so.


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
