The Very Vile and Very Vicious Enemy, Which By the Way Is Not Islam

Allen West, a GOP and Tea Party candidate for the House in Florida,
feels that among the biggest problems facing our nation is that
ubiquitous "Coexist" bumper sticker
urging us all to respect each other. It "absolutely incenses" him. We
know that feeling. From where, one has to wonder, does such hate and
fear spring - in a black guy, yet, who surely must know something of
discrimination?

"That person (with the bumper sticker) represents something
that would give away our country. Would give away who we are, our
rights and freedoms and liberties."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
