No Heckling Please, We're White Supremacists

In the news:

A white separatist group planning a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade in Jena is suing the town, claiming officials are violating the Constitution by asking participants not to bring firearms...

It's hard out here for white racists these days. First they took away their slaves, and we didn't speak up; then they confiscated their lynch ropes, and we didn't utter a word; then they came for their water fountains, and we kept silent.

What's next?

In an Oct. 15 letter to McMillin, Richard Barrett, an attorney for the Nationalists, asks the town for ... "adequate security," restroom facilities, access to drinking water, "adequate and secure parking" and no noise from hecklers.

I know the line in the Declaration of Independence about "life, liberty, and the pursuit of adequate, secure parking" but I looked in vain for a statement about heckling. All I know is, when you're trying to rule the world with an iron fist and enslave half of its population, heckling can be really annoying.

White supremacist rallies can be fun! Even grey-supremacist rallies -- i.e., those for folks who won't ADMIT it -- are a thrill.

I got jumped handing out anti-candidate fliers at a Ron Paul event at Independence Hall. How cool is that?

I don't know if they intend to be funny, but they are.

"Blacks are always the first to scream 'racism,' when, in fact, blacks have the NAACP, ACLU, United Black Fund, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and who knows what else for blacks! If whites people had a WAACP, WCLU, United Caucasian College Fund and David Duke, the blacks would have a riot saying that we were racists!"

Thanks a lot, Don... I followed your link, did some reading and now I'm (even more so) depressed. How do these people exists in this day and age???

Bernard C., these people have the nerve to whine about hecklers, but there's nothing anyone can do to keep Re. Phelps away from our fallen soldiers funerals.

It's truly an upside-down world!

"...If whites people had a WAACP, WCLU, United Caucasian College Fund and David Duke, the blacks would have a riot saying that we were racists!"

WTF is the WAACP? The White Association for the Advancement of Coloured People?

Am I not getting something here? Surely they mean the NAAWP?

Or are they truly that stoopid?
