Jerry Klien shows us a little ugly truth about ourselves

On the 29th of November Klien did a little experiment on his radio show.

He suggested that all Muslims in America be given an identifying mark, perhaps a tattoo or an armband. This was not a serious suggestion, it was a way to find out what people in this country are really thinking. He played it quite well though, and I am rather dismayed by the reaction of all too many people.

For anyone who wants some insight as to why the six Imams were dragged off their plane, just listen to this program.

Go here and listen to the program, listen to the whole thing though. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you can either listen to it with streaming audio or download the mp3.

Listen to this and be very afraid for our country. The truth is that the Right Wing Authoritarians have done this, George Bush, Newt Gingrich, and all the nut jobs on the religious right have turned us from the Land of the Free to the land of the crescent moon tattoo.

Problem is, the Nazis are always with us. They change their names and appearance, but the truth is, we aren't civilized, and until we are, somebody will always have to be the nigger.

Bad enough that it is that way; worse if we instutionalize it.
