Russell King has penned a brilliant rant, and it's perfectly timed.
I was just about to embark on a treasure hunt to find the best examples of this insane journey these freaks have taken us on. As I've been tweeting lately, Batshit Crazy is The New Normal. I doubt my Rants and Primers inspired it, but I'm gonna pretend it did. I'd like to see dozens more like it, all which will be included in my primers.
Please tweet this to everyone you've known since elementary school. It's important.
Now the advice. You're going to have to come up with a platform that isn't built on a foundation of cowardice: fear of people with colors, religions, cultures and sex lives that differ from your own; fear of reform in banking, health care, energy; fantasy fears of America being transformed into an Islamic nation, into social/commun/fasc-ism, into a disarmed populace put in internment camps; and more. But you have work to do even before you take on that task.
