“I am grateful to those who carry my articles on their websites and pray for God’s blessings upon them. But, I know that there will come a time, and very soon, when my words will be blocked and censored. The prophets of old who were sent to deliver hard messages unto God’s people and to their kings and religious leaders were censored and imprisoned, and those who speak the truth today can expect the same circumstances as even now we see an unrighteous abridgement – by a fascistic government – of individual rights and liberties.“

….Never before have my emotions been so exercised by a political campaign. For one thing, never before has a candidate so fully challenged the many inhibitions that have prevented people of all races, including African Americans, from seriously envisioning presidential power in the hands of someone other than a white American. With intelligence, verve and elegance, Obama has opened the public mind to the idea of a black president and made that idea broadly attractive.

The chair of the Connecticut College history department, Catherine McNicol Stock, has suggested that Sarah Palin is somehow associated with Pacific Northwest hate groups such as Posse Comitatus and the Aryan Nations. Her proof? Well, because Palin lived in areas with low “diversity.” I kid you not. Here is the professor’s “learned thesis” presented in a Philadelphia Inquirer opinion column melodramatically titled, “Intolerance thrives in Palin’s Pacific Northwest” (emphasis mine):
Despite her efforts to portray herself as an average, small-town, “folksy” American, Sarah Palin’s political views – ardently pro-gun, pro-censorship, antichoice and antigay – make John McCain’s conservative credentials pale in comparison. What few observers have said, however, is these beliefs are not just extreme – they are radical, and even bear a comparison with some of the most notorious “rural radicals” of our time.
