From My E-Mail

For some reason I'm signed up to get frequent e-mails from the Nation magazine, a bastion of liberal thought and this is what was in my inbox today:

Dear Nation Friend:

If you think the "Age of Obama" has miraculously swept clean right wing influence in American schools and on campuses, think again:

* Just weeks ago, Rush Limbaugh, the crown prince of hate speech, twisted words and logic to turn a simple presidential speech encouraging school children into a sinister political plot.

* Just days ago, Glenn Beck led the astro-turf 9-12-09 "Taxpayer March on DC." Compared to the millions who have marched for civil rights, equal rights, and gay rights, and against the war, Beck's 70,000 would be small stuff -- except for the tens of thousands waving Confederate flags, anti-gay hate signs, and shouting "White Power!"

Well-equipped minds have no trouble countering an increasingly dangerous, racist and radical right wing. And, unlike any other magazine in America, The Nation's unique Student Outreach Program equips students to question... think... and seek the truth.

Thousands waving Confederate flags, anti-gay hate signs, and shouting "White Power!"???? Really?
