Hee hee…. the editor of The Nation is claiming that the folks at the 9/12 Tea party in DC were “tens of thousands waving Confederate flags, anti-gay hate signs, and shouting “White Power!” (In fund raising spam.)
I was there.
I saw a single confederate flag.
I saw zero “anti-gay hate signs”.
I heard one person screaming “white power”. He was on a street corner, as the tea party folks passed by. He was against the tea party, not for it.
I guess the means is justified when the end is sufficiently noble… in this case providing propaganda to school kids (read the spam).
