Border Bigot to Run for Congressional Seat

Right wing extremist and not so closeted racist Jim Gilchrist has declared his Congressional candidacy for Orange County District 48. Still trying to justify his bigoted vigilante organization by evoking 9/11 [1], he is attempting to raise funds and garner support for a congressional run. Although many suspected the leaders of these various white supremacist groups couched in rhetoric of border security have had political aspirations all along, Gilchrist is the first to fulfill this prediction.

All those concerned with preventing this hate-filled reactionary from making a serious run at congress need to mobilize. While Gilchrist and others like him are responsible for shootings and various other human right violations at the border, the corporate media and reactionary extremist California Governor have done their very best to make heroes out of them. These jingoistic individuals have spent so much of their lives in a culture of overt racism, they make racist statements while maintaining they aren't racists.

Some quotes from the MMP site:

"...while their nation is devoured and plundered by the menace of tens of millions of invading illegal aliens."

I've yet to see undocumented people devouring or plundering anything. Why are they a menace Jim? Is it the brown thing?

"Future generations will inherit a tangle of rancorous, unassimilated, squabbling cultures..."

Well Jim, you aren't trying to suggest that cultures other than your own are all rancorous and squabbling are you? Aside from the blatant ethnocentrism, your racism shows through this quote as well.

The racist rhetoric, affiliations, actions, and dire consequences of Jim Gilchrist's MMP are of grave concern and cannot be rewarded with a seat in the U.S. Congress. Making it clear that running for office on supremacist ideology will not be tolerated is critical. Stopping Gilchrist will prevent his fellow hate mongers like James Chase and Joe Turner from following suit in the future.

I had posted this on San Diego's Indymedia site and aside from the usual racist apologetics, one of the later comments links to some interesting studies showing denial or racism by racists being similiar to denial of abuse by men who abuse.
