Pond Scum

This article in the Scotsman has me fuming. Apparently, white supremacist groups are trying to use Scottish Games here in the US as a way to promote their poison. There always seems to be evil people in plenty to try and defile even the most innocent expressions of heritage and pride.

And this just plays into the media here that anything to do with white people is 'bad'. When I went to Highland Games in SoCal after the Rodney King riots, there were reporters at the gates asking attendees if we didn't feel we were sending the wrong message by celebrating our heritage. I bet they didn't ask that question at Cinco de Mayo or Oban Festivals.

Damned if I'm going to let some pond scum white supremacists hijack my heritage!

This is one of those mentally all in CAPS posts!

There was a group that tried this at a games here. Once people figured out what was up, they were asked to leave -- immediately. As for the reporters mentioned, ask them if they did the same at the others, or are they simply racist bigots as well?

Like the new look, BTW :)
