Klan Rally: Aisle Five! 

Prices slashed on domestic terror. While supplies last!

Via Atrios this quote on "domestic terrorism":
"Gangs are a forum to promote terrorism," said Balboni spokeswoman Lisa Angerame. "Therefore, the anti-terrorism statue would be applicable against them, even if the original intent for this law was not exactly to prosecute them."

Speaking of "forums" for domestic terrorism and "gangs" and so on... over in wingnut retail world - hypocrisy sells:
Selling Extremism
Wal-Mart drops Protocols, but controversy lives on

(The book on which 'Birth of a Nation' is based is offered in four different versions on Wal-Mart's Web site.)

Wal-Mart is notoriously vigilant about protecting consumers from products it deems offensive. The world's largest retail chain refuses to sell any CD with a parental warning sticker. Wal-Mart even banned Sheryl Crow's music because the singer/songwriter criticized its gun sales.

The chain has also implemented policies against literature it deems offensive, stripping men's magazines like Maxim and Stuff from the store's racks along with gay publications like The Advocate and Out.

Wal-Mart's standards of offensiveness became an issue last fall when customers and civil-rights groups complained about its Web site selling The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

A notorious forgery that describes a vast Jewish conspiracy to rule the world, the Protocols are carried by other online booksellers such as Amazon.com, but with a disclaimer that describes it as a "pernicious fraud," and "one of the most infamous, and tragically influential, examples of racist propaganda ever written."

Wal-Mart's site featured quite a different description of the controversial product: "If ... The Protocols are genuine (which can never be proven conclusively), it might cause some of us to keep a wary eye on world affairs," said WalMart.com.

"It's outrageous that they would sell it in the first place," said Deborah Lipstadt, director of the Rabbi Donald A. Tam Institute for Jewish Studies at Emory University. "It's unbelievable, but I'm glad they pulled it. It's the equivalent of selling 'Birth of a Nation' in the film section."

In fact, "Birth of a Nation," a 1915 filmic ode to white supremacy based on the 1905 novel The Clansman, is still available on WalMart.com for $17.28. The site also sells four different versions of The Clansman.

The book and movie were largely responsible for the 20th-century rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan, introducing the tactic of cross-burnings to the new generation of racists the story inspired. ~ Southern Poverty Law Center

Several printings available from WalMart Books: Thomas Dixon

Thomas Dixon is the author of the Klan trilogy which also includes The Leopard's Spots and The Traitor. The Clansman was, as the item above notes, the inspiration for David Wark (D.W.) Griffith's 1915 film Birth of a Nation.

Dixon wrote a whole lot of other crap too; including The Flaming Sword in which crazed commie negroes try to help destroy America and puppies and indoor plumbing and pretty much everything else they could get permission to destroy. Basically, God fearin' white Christian western civilization in general. You know how those sneaky negroes are. Unfortunately the sneaky homosexuals have picked up where the commie black people left off so western civilization will have to remain on its vigilant toes for a short while longer. At least until WalMart shoppers - or those beady-eyed cousin fuckers at MSNBC's Scarborough Country - can mount some kind of glorious counterterror counteroffensive. To the Daniel Decatur Emmett monument brave avengers! (Emmett wrote the song "I Wish I Was In Dixie's Land" - just in case you were wondering.)

Yes, where was I ....oh, Thomas Dixon's The Clansman... here's a sampling (intro snip) from the book. On the birth of the Invisible Empire:
In the darkest hour of the life of the South, when her wounded people lay helpless amid rags and ashes under the beak and talon of the Vulture, suddenly from the mists of the mountains appeared a white cloud the size of a man's hand. It grew until its mantle of mystery enfolded the stricken earth and sky. An "Invisible Empire" had risen from the field of Death and challenged the Visible to mortal combat.

How the young South, led by the reincarnated souls of the Clansmen of Old Scotland, went forth under this cover and against overwhelming odds, daring exile, imprisonment, and a felon's death, and saved the life of a people, forms one of the most dramatic chapters in the history of the Aryan race. - Thomas Dixon, December 14, 1904

Well I'm plucking a tear from my eye. Makes ya just want to run on down to WalMart right now and pick yer'self out a set of everyday low priced white King size polyester-blend bed sheets and mount a spirited chestnut steed and gallop off to rescue a golden haired lassie trapped in a burning manor. Now don't it?

I think I'll give up blogging to write KKK bodice rippers. I think it's an entire unexplored genre that could fill a niche these days. Any interested publishers please feel free to write me and offer me a generous amount of advance money. I will accept gold bullion as well.

Good day Sirs.
