Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Romney and the KKK

Romney is in trouble.

It's the type of coincidence every politician dreads. On Tuesday, political commenters reported that one of Romney's go-to campaign catch-phrases, "Keep America American," was a central theme of Ku Klux Klan publications in the 1920s, and served as a rallying cry for the white supremacist group's campaign of violence and intimidation against black Americans, as well as Catholics, gay people and Jews.

I for one doubt any coincidence, just about everything Republicans do and say is a racist dog whistle to racists.

Of course the folks at MSNBC have turned into pussies.

MSNBC issued a formal apology to Mitt Romney on Dec. 14 after a report during the morning broadcast that compared a slogan of the presidential candidate's to a slogan used by the Ku Klux Klan.

There is no comparing, it's equating, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THE KKK SAID! If racism and bigotry is ever going to be stopped, racists and bigots must be exposed. And shame on Mitt Romney for the slogan and MSNBC for apologizing for being right.
