Subject: RE: BS: RFKennedy, Jr., - Palin quotes fascist
"We grow good people in our small towns, with honesty and sincerity and dignity"?
The thing is it's not that the quote by itself is offensive at first blush. It sounds great...we grow good people in our small towns...ok, but the inference is that we grow something else in our big towns and cities. Pegler was creating an "us v. them" mentality just as Palin and McCain (make no mistake about who is the top of this ticket) are trying to do. Who is "them"...who doesn't grow up in small town America? Blacks? Hispanics? Jews? The elite?
