Scar Spangled Banner

Fifty years before the Bush brothers illegally removed black voters from voting rolls in order to steal the White House, the newly-seated Nationalist government of South Africa illegally disenfranchised black voters despite opposition from their Supreme Court. Ironically, here in the beacon of democracy, our Supreme Court upheld a return to Jim Crow.

As the first fascist government in South Africa, the apartheid agenda implemented in the 1950s was not unexpected. As the first fascist government in the United States, the resort to racism is hardly a surprise.

It took South Africa forty years to rid itself of fascist governance. How long will it take us?
