With the inauguration of President Obama do not think hate groups are a thing of the past or do not operate near you. Witness the statement of David Duke former head of the KuKluxKlan in his article A Black Flag for White America: “Obama is a visual aid for White Americans who just don’t get it yet that we have lost control of our country, and unless we get it back we are heading for complete annihilation as a people.”

A similar mentality is current in the City of Boston if one will reflect that any voice for “peace” is vigorously barred from the St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 15th. Held to be a “private” family affair, despite being cleverly outsourced by the City and massively subsidized by security forces, it is said to be “Legal.” Maybe so, as was the exclusion of Blacks and Whites from Country Clubs but is now deemed to be not so” fashionable” in more progressive environments. Preceding this insult to Veteran and peace groups protesting war will be an endorsement through silent assent by virtually the entire Massachusetts political establishment celebrating an Irish heritage amongst a community which has lost its roots in oppression – their forebears being slaughtered by the mercenary English army of Black and Tans during the famine – thugs from jails unleashed upon a starving population – identical to our occupation of Iraq. Sadder still will be the complicit assent of a numbed and dumbed, and too often drunken million spectators comfortable in their perception that “support our troops” consists of the purchase of a dirty metallic yellow ribbon while hundreds of veterans return mentally deranged and will lie homeless in the streets. Change indeed! St. Patrick would weep.
