White supremacy is rearing it’s ugly head in an unusually blatant way. An extremist within the tea party (hard to imagine, i know) says white people are going extinct, and we should be concerned:
Now, the Phillips group wants to raise awareness about a potentially existential threat to the United States: White people are going extinct
First, it will be property owners, and next they’ll revoke the voting rights of women… is it just me or do some of these individuals really want to “take america back” to colonial days? I’m sure this guy has a “real problem” with anything outside his standard of “normal”… realistically that’s called xenophobia. Also, if we’re so postracial, why would it matter if pure white people are dwindling? Don’t worry Phillips, your white supremacist, hierarchical, sexist ideology will not disappear as quickly as blonde haired blue eyed babies… unfortunately for the rest of us the systemic nature of oppression will be a very hard battle to wage (we’re trying every day though). This is from the email sent out by tea partiers:
All of these programs, ideals and ideologies are doing one thing and one thing only – reducing America core TFR [total fertility rate] to the point of no return. The White Anglo-Saxon Protestant (WASP) population in America is headed for extinction and with it our economy, well-being and survival as a uniquely America culture.
post racial my fanny. The white people are disappearing so everything good must be disappearing as well. This is disgusting.
Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi issued an emergency injunction prohibiting enactment of the law earlier this month. But the Legislative Reference Bureau published the law anyway on Friday.
Publication is typically the last step before a law takes effect, but it’s unclear if the bureau’s action amounted to that; the law’s supporters say it did, but opponents say the secretary of state had to designate a publication date.
People are not in agreement in Wisconsin and there is confusion… this is why majority controlled politics (and policies) suck compared to consensus decision making.. well, one reason.
Despite Paul’s insistence that nullification is proper and constitutional, Article 6 of the Constitution clearly states that Acts of Congress “shall be the supreme law of the land…anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.” That’s why one of our founding fathers, James Madison, argued that nullification would “speedily put an end to the Union itself” by allowing federal laws to be freely ignored by states.
I’ll take it a different route, because nullification of laws really does, as this article notes, take the “united” out of the states… if you want to nullify laws set federally, you must also want to nullify federal assistance, which in effect is to cease to be a part of the United States. And honestly, I think that wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.. our country is toooo big, with too many differing ideologies and people trying to control one another and tell each other how to live their lives. But for Paul to think you should receive Federal funding and protection under the US while ignoring laws… well, i think he should take an intro to US Government class
