Beautifying the Street Where I Live

How surprised I was this morning as I went to the driveway to collect the newspapers to also find a cleverly packaged piece of white supremacist “nationalist” hate-group literature nearby on the ground. After opening it and being repulsed, I then looked around and saw that our house wasn’t the only one on the block to have been so greeted. With the help of my 2-year-old daughter, we walked the block and cleaned up more than a dozen pieces of trash littered along the sidewalk and street.

After writing this, I may come to find out that I inadvertently insulted the work of some local neo-Con blogger’s friends. Nevertheless, the kind of ideology littered along my street this morning is a repulsive affront to true Christian religion and our nation’s founding creed, the Declaration of Independence.

I’m glad to participate in this kind of neighborhood clean-up program: it’s community beautification on multiple levels.

    There is undeniably some overlap between neo-Confederate apologists and the further white nationalist fringe. The passionate work of the former may unwittingly inform the warped ideology of the latter. And they both tend to love the old Confederate flag.

    Other than that, it was pretty much a throwaway line.

    Jus’ as there is some overlap between neoconservative apologists and the further Jewish nationalist fringe.

    Reason enuf t’ avoid throwaway lines, ain’t it?

    I thank you kin be reasoanbly assured that your white nationalist pamphleteers had nothin’ to do with any “local neo-Con blogger.” Jim Cannon seems-ta be my only reader, ‘n I bet he didn’t go all apey and put white nationalist stuff in yir driveway.

    Your determination to faithfully blog in unappreciated anonymity for such a small audience is an admirable trait. Glad to see you’re paying attention.

    ‘L, I may be pseudonuminous, ‘n my audience may be little-bitty, but at least I’m both coherent ‘n faithful t’ cornservative principles. Kin you make the same claim?
