"Make America white again" - US politician candidate

With the Republican line up of conservatives against difference, railing most hardheartedly about the LGBT, I guess it was inevitable that some nutter candidate would think it was OK to put up the above bilboard.

After all, hate breeds hate. Once the hate starts where does it end? The demonisation if difference, of sexuality, of foreigners, of refugees, inevitably it's going to come home and demonise people of colour in their own land. People of difference. 

To the notion that white heterosexual christians are superior to all others. There's a name for that you know....... We fought against it in WW2.

This is where the US is currently heading? To a place where and independent candidate thinks it's just fine to put up a billboard as this? It appears they're already there.

The price of complacency... A population numbed by technology and entertainment, believing themselves free and OK, whilst the creeping fascism slowly weaves it's way into their society. 

This is where hate and intolerance leads:
An independent candidate running for Tennessee's 3rd Congressional District seat is under fire for a campaign billboard he posted with the slogan "Make America White Again," local TV station WRCB reported Wednesday. 

Rick Tyler confirmed to the station that he put up the billboard, which also lists the address for his campaign website. 

Tyler told WRCB that he does not hate people of color, but does believe America "should go back to the 1960s." 

"(The) Leave it to Beaver time when there were no break-ins; no violent crime; no mass immigration," he told the news station. TPM
Well at least he's moved on from the 1950's.

Same old line as with the LGBT - I don't hate you I just believe that......
