As the teabaggers have taught us, the real racists are, of course, those who point out racism and call it by name, but maybe this is also racism?

Jim Russell, a right-wing activist running against Congresswoman Nita Lowey in the 18th district mid-state, has a rather interesting past. Specifically, writing lengthy essays in support of white supremacy.

Russell wrote an essay entitled “The Western Contribution to World History,” which was published in the 2001/2002 issue of the magazine “Occidental Quarterly,” which has been described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “racist” and whose “editors and advisory board members have constituted a ‘Who’s Who’ of the radical right, and its regular publication of extremists’ articles has made it a favorite among academic racists in America.”

Let’s look at the essay:

It has been demonstrated that finches raised by foster parents of a different species of finch will later exhibit a lifelong sexual attraction toward the alien species. One wonders how a child’s sexual imprinting mechanism is affected by forcible racial integration and near continual exposure to media stimuli promoting interracial contact. The most serious implication of human sexual imprinting for our genetic future is that it would establish the destructiveness of school integration, especially in the middle and high-school years. One can only wonder to what degree the advocates of school integration, such as former NAACP attorney Jack Greenberg, were conscious of this scientific concept. It also compounds the culpability of media moguls who deliberately popularize miscegenation in films directed toward adolescents and pre-adolescents. In the midst of this onslaught against our youth, parents need to be reminded that they have a natural obligation, as essential as providing food and shelter, to instill in their children an acceptance of appropriate ethnic boundaries for socialization and for marriage.

The sociobiological warfare that our youth is subjected to is likely to be even more diabolical since it appears to deliberately exploit a biological theory of sexual imprinting at the critical period of sexual maturity. Movies like this past year’s spate of miscegenationist titles, Save the Last Dance, Crazy / Beautiful and O, a parody of Othello, appear deliberately designed to exploit the critical period of sexual imprinting in their target audiences of white pre-adolescent girls and adolescent young women.

There is now afoot a conscious effort to de-Europeanize and to re-Judaize Christianity, through scriptural revision, internal treachery and external pressure.

The importance of applying eugenic measures in the West becomes evident from Richard Lynn’s recent work on Dysgenics and his just-released seminal work Eugenics: A Reassessment.

Wow! But as Digby points out, these people don’t think they’re racist, therefore they aren’t, Q.E.D., etc.  Digby also reminds us of the teabagger candidate for governor in the state of New York, Carl Paladino, who likes to e-mail pictures like this to his friends:



But really, it’s really so rude of you to accuse them of being racist, based on these isolated cases that come up no more than several times a week, like clockwork, from all corners of the insurgent teabagging movement.
