More reasons to join “Raleigh to Restore Sanity”

The day after Raleigh to Restore Sanity was announced this editorial (for some unknown reason) was published in Greenville’s paper the Daily Reflector.

The Reflector, which has great editorial stances, regularly carries opinion pieces from bizarro economist Walter Williams.

In the piece Williams argues that the rather staid One Nation march hosted by the NAACP and others was the first step toward a full blown Nazi takeover of the United States. Seriously.

Maybe Williams needs the sign suggested by Jon Stewart that says “I may disagree with you but I’m pretty sure you’re not Hitler”.

    After having listened to Walter for a number of years…I can say with authority, YOU ARE WRONG.
    …and I don’t think you’re Hitler, more like Himmler.

    Since I didn’t make any claims it’s difficult to be wrong.
