They are letting their KKK flags fly now, you bet they are: with the passing of Nelson Mandela, the “conservatives” and Teabaggers who own the “Republican” party these days are unashamedly whipping out lies, hatred, false equivalences and general bigoted bulls*** by the metric ton. A few examples out of the many:
Number A: Even Ted Cruz is smart enough to pretend to respect Mandela:but his many Cruzbots, alas, are even dumber than he is, and laid out death threats to Obama and racist “jokes” on his Facebook page.
Letter 2: Rick Santorum is also dumber than Ted Cruz: he compared Apartheid to ObamaCare . Yes, he really did.
Thirdly: over at Foxnation, people said
S*** like “we need Apartheid in America”, and wanted to buy videos of Mandela’s death throes.
Finally (for here, but unfortunately not in the rest of America), from another Fox “news” website,this erudite missive:

“A stinking commie who along with his cuzzins ruined a whole nation, go to hell mandela ! Oh yeah Im a horrible person and too bad I can’t say how wonderful this overated bafoon was, Ive never have liked a communist or a idol worshipping pope who condones a gay lifestyle and I was raised in the catholic mindset. But you grow and you learn that somethings aren’t the way they appear so you research them and the truth can be a shock ! And guess what I don’t like that marxist in DC either !”
That, friends, is what Neocon Teapublicans think. They hate black people. They hate people who fight for equality. They hate everyone but themselves.
Mr. Blunt and Cranky
P.S. This is nothing new: it was going on in the Reagan Administration, when people like Little Dick Cheney called Mandela a “terrorist”.
