Jesse Helms, Lynchist, Has Died

Today is Saturday, 5 July 2008.

Briefly Senator (of Whites) Jesse Helms, of North Carolina, was called, by his Lord, Satan, to a grateful rest, yesterday, the Fourth of July, 2008.

He was 86.

Helms was a life-long white supremacist (beginning in his political career for white supremacist, neo-nazi Senate candidate, Willis Smith, in 1950). Helms also believed women should be virtual slaves of males, and hated lesbians and gay males.

While pretending to hate the Federal government, Helms was a long-time trencher-man at that trough.

Helms entrenched himself firmly in that Grand Old Southern tradition, which, as a Southerner by birth myself, I know so well, of the minimally-effective white supremacist blowhard.

The only good I can say of this evil man is that, in 1963, Dorothy Helms, his wife, and he, adopted a disabled child.

This does not atone for a life of wickedness.
