Read this, then say to yourself, slowly “It’s 2013. It’s 2013. It’s 2013. WTF IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?” Because that is what I did:
A racist hate group at Towson University has announced plans to conduct its own nighttime police patrols on campus.
Founded last year, the White Student Union has stirred significant controversy already. The organization has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. In addition, its founder, Matthew Heimbach (who goes by the title “Commander Heimbach”), and fellow organizer Scott Terry interrupted a minority outreach panel at the Conservative Political Action Conference this month in order to defend slavery, noting that slaveholders provided blacks with food and shelter. Terry later told ThinkProgress that African-Americans “should be allowed to vote in Africa” and he’d be “fine” living in a society where blacks are permanently subservient to whites.
Seriously? Can’t white supremacists find someone whose name doesn’t sound like someone executed at Nuremberg?
And for the record, while I in no way support this group or its endeavors, I will say that it is nice having the fucking racists out in the open where we can keep an eye on them.
