The Little Experiment

has gone slightly awry.  I've been trying to read White Power by John Lincoln Rockwell and I just can't do it.  I've been trying for the past two days.  Between the hideous typographical errors and some of the facts which are just plain wrong, I simply refuse to give this hate-filled, anger-fueled diatribe another moment of my time.  I'm sure, somewhere out there, it's in a public library, probably taking up shelf space along with Hitler's Mein Kampf.  To those libraries, I say, good for you.  Folks, I can't give you a decent evaluation or even a brief synopsis of the plot of White Power, simply because I can't get into it, I'm sick of the author fussing at me, and if I want preached to by a hatemonger, I'll go to work or jump online and try to read something from Rush Limbaugh or that Sean Hannity person or any of the other conservatives who think our current president is a Socialist who wasn't born in this country.  Just a heads-up, to those of you who feel the same way--Hawaii has been an official state since 1949.  Obama was born sometime in the mid-60s, I believe.  His mother was a white woman.  Does this make him the first official black president?  Not necessarily.  Does this make him the first official President of mixed race?  Yes.  Is this a bad thing?  No.  Go ahead and disagree with me.

  1. Never read "White Power" but I did read an annotated version of "Mein Kampf" and the disgusting "Turner Diaries". The annotations on most pages provided useful historical context and explanations to a banal and almost humorously tedious autobiography. I was surprised to find the "Turner Diaries" at our local library and too embarrassed to actually check it out so I came in and read it an hour or two each day for two weeks. Fascinating and revolting in the way of a car wreck...
