The top of the heap, indeed

Sally Jo Sorensen at Bluestem Prairie has been doing some digging on a guy named Samuel Johnson and the neo-Nazi group he heads in Austin, Minnesota. Apparently, Johnson’s trying to use anti-immigration sentiment in southern Minnesota to gain a foothold for other issues of the so-called “National Socialist Movement.” Among other things, he wants all non-whites to leave — or be “escorted” out — of the country, or at least just live in their own sanctioned ghettos. Kind of like the Jews in Warsaw. It’s much easier to keep track of ‘em that way.

It is undoubtedly an irony lost on Herr Oberführer Johnson that a lot of non-whites have an American history a lot longer than perhaps his probable early-twentieth century Swedish immigrant ancestors.

The thing that absolute astonishes Spot, though, is that guys who think they are the crème de la crème, humankind’s zenith, the top of the heap genetically, so often look like this:
