    The US is on an inexorable march to becoming a nation in which whites are in the minority. This has already occurred in several states including California. It is giving rise to all sorts of hysteria and desperation. You can be absolutely certain that the holders of privilege and power will use every possible means to retain their grasp on it. This is much more than grandstanding in an election year.   

    •  @Richard Lyon agree Richard — hysteria and desperation indeed
      we have to ready for all of it

    “Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), who recently made news for criticizing his opponent’s willingness to talk about her military service, has a new target: President Obama. A Democratic tracker caught Walsh calling the president “son,” and saying he wanted to “pat him on the head.”
    At a campaign barbecue in his district Sunday, Walsh was explaining what he hopes will be the tea party’s role in the election:
    “There’s something different on the ground, and I think it’s going to overtake us all again, think it’s going to overtake the political class. I think it’s going to respectfully pick this president up and pat him on the head and say, son, son, son, Mr. President, you were never ready to be president, now go home and work for somebody and find out how the real world works.” ‘
