Supremacy on the Curve

Random thought of the day:  Is there any greater oxymoron than "White Supremacist"? 

As a decidedly mediocre Caucasian I must admit that every time I see something in the news pertaining to one of these asshats I come away thinking "Really?".  If there is some sort of Supreme Being and he was holding up one white person as an example of the superiority of those of us of a white-skinned persuasion (actually we are closer to peach-colored than white but that is a story for another day and I do not have M.T. here to explain it to you) to the rest of the planet's inhabitants, then are we expected to reasonably that the example he would use is Franklin Glenn Cross?

Sorry, no sale.

Mr. Cross is the pillar of the community who decided to spend his Palm Sunday hunting other human beings - and chose as the grounds in which to conduct his hunt a Jewish Community Center and a Jewish retirement home in Overland Park, Kansas.  Mr. Cross killed three innocents in cold blood before he was apprehended.  At least two of the three he killed, a physician and the physician's fourteen-year-old grandson, were Christians.  It is little solace to their families and to the families of this jagoff's other victims that Cross is apparently no expert in recognizing another's religious affiliation simply by staring at him or her down the barrel of his weapon. 

Hopefully they will derive some solace from the fact that Cross, 73, now faces the likelihood of spending the rest of his life - if convicted for his alleged crimes - in a Kansas state penitentiary.  I must admit that I would be in favor of permitting him to spread the word of his "Whiteys Are #1" philosophy in an area where he and his followers have likely never spent much time.  East St. Louis Illinois jumps immediately to the forefront of my mind.   The sad truth is that nothing done to this piece of human deritus shall ever bring back their loved ones.  

His hate has already taken them away...

  Father, father
We don't need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today...
