Ted Rall is a cartoonist and author. He gained a modicum of fame by spewing anti-American/anti-war junk on cable news programs. Also, you may recall his racist Condoleeza Rice cartoon. But like Ann Murray, he gets a pass from fellow Democrats.
His latest book, The Anti-American Manifesto, calls for a revolution against everything the leftists hate:
“The millions of partisans who follow Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and right-wing televangelists happen to be the best-armed people around, and they despise just about everyone who doesn’t think and pray like them. They will see collapse as affirmation of their beliefs that secular liberalism is destructive. They will also see it as an opportunity to create a new, ordered world atop the ashes. They will act to stop teenage sluts from getting abortions, teach niggers a lesson, and slaughter those spics, dots, and everyone else who doesn’t fit into their vision of what and who is right…
I want to kick people in the ass. To get them thinking. To get you thinking. I want you to understand the situation—your situation. I want you to see that revolt is a good idea, and that it has never been more necessary. I also want you to size up the opposition (both the government and 28 The Anti-American Manifesto the extreme right): They will never get weaker.We have as good a chance at taking them on as ever.”
Rall envisions a coming right/left war. He wants the left to fight this war:
“A war is coming. At stake: our lives, the planet, freedom, living. The government, the corporations, and the extreme right are prepared to coalesce into an Axis of Evil. Are you going to fight back? Will you do whatever it takes, including taking up arms?”
Rall and various leftist groups like CODE PINK have been touting his visit this week to Florida International University. If you want to give him a piece of your mind, please be polite.
