Stupid White Pride

here’s Fairfield, Ohio, resident Mike Lunsford’s idea of Halloween decorations — a ghost bearing an upside down Obama sign and the name “Hussain” (again with the misspelling) spraypainted on the “chest” hanging by the neck from a tree right above his McCain-Palin sign.

Lunsford told Channel 12 that his display is not political — it’s racist — and that

his views could hurt his employer’s business … but he says make no mistake: He doesn’t want an African American running the country. Lunsford says he believes Barack Obama is not a “full blooded American.” And he says the United States is a white, Christian nation — and only with white Christians should be in power.

Mike Lunsford is likely to be entertaining Secret Service agents. Large, Unamused Secret Service Agents.

Their view of "protected speech" that might tend to endanger their assigned protectee and their personal safety is no doubt jaundiced.

For myself, it's people like this that have made me reconsider my views toward "hate speech" legislation, as a civilized alternate to "The Fighting Words Doctrine."
