The race is on and it looks like heartaches

Mom keeps me posted on the rantings of certain members of the family, you know, the "special" ones. She sent me this one tonight:

Cute. It's a game called "Border Patrol." You get to blast what are meant to represent illegals coming over the border. Reminds me of that wonderful Christian game making the news recently. You know, the one where you get to:
join the Christians and kill nonbelievers, or join the demonic forces and smite Christians, in "Left Behind: Eternal Forces," a video game due this fall as part of the wildly popular "Left Behind" franchise.

"Eternal Forces" is the latest effort by Tyndale House Publishers to profit from the "Left Behind" novels, a fictional series about the apocalypse that its authors claim has won converts to Christianity.

But "Eternal Forces" may be the franchise's most controversial product. The game purports to teach Christian values while allowing players to kill in the name of either Christianity or the Antichrist.

Bastards. Here's more from Kos about Rick Warren, the Mr. Clean of Saddlebck Church down in Orange County being involved with this game:

imagine: you are a foot soldier in a paramilitary group whose purpose is to remake America as a Christian theocracy, and establish its worldly vision of the dominion of Christ over all aspects of life. You are issued high-tech military weaponry, and instructed to engage the infidel on the streets of New York City. You are on a mission - both a religious mission and a military mission -- to convert or kill Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, gays, and anyone who advocates the separation of church and state - especially moderate, mainstream Christians. Your mission is "to conduct physical and spiritual warfare"; all who resist must be taken out with extreme prejudice. You have never felt so powerful, so driven by a purpose: you are 13 years old. You are playing a real-time strategy video game whose creators are linked to the empire of mega-church pastor Rick Warren, best selling author of The Purpose Driven Life.

But that's not important right now. The point is, by backtracking from the URL of the game Mom sent, we see it comes from Ring any bells?

It's the White Aryan Resistance, Tom Metzger's band of lunatics. Here's wikipedia on Metzger:

Thomas L. Metzger (born April 9, 1938) is the leader of the white supremacists group White Aryan Resistance.

Metzger grew up in Indiana. In 1961, he moved to Southern California to work in the electronics industry. For a short time, Metzger was a member of the John Birch Society. During the 1970s, Metzger joined the "Knights of the Ku Klux Klan" which was led by David Duke. Metzger became the Grand Dragon for the State of California. Metzger was also a minister in the Christian Identity movement.

During the summer of 1979, Metzger organized a patrol to capture illegal Mexican immigrants south of Fallbrook, California. Metzger's Klan organization also had a security force which was involved in confrontations with anti-Klan protesters.

Metzger's branch of the Klan split with Duke's organization in 1980 to form the "California Knights of the Ku Klux Klan."

In 1980, Metzger won the Democratic Party nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives with over 40,000 votes in a San Diego-area district. Metzger had changed his party registration from Republican to Democrat earlier in the year. The Democrats disavowed Metzger's candidacy, instead endorsing incumbent four-term Republican Clair Burgener. Metzger lost by over 200,000 votes in November to a several-term incumbent in a heavily Republican district.

San Diego, eh? My man t (I call him t) lives down there, among those crazies. Sorry dude.

Here's some thoughts from WAR:
EXCERPTS from "Paleoconservative Thoughts To Ponder":

28) Since the fifties, minorities and feminists have been struggling to unseat white males and dismantle their culture; and they've executed the rout virtually unopposed, displaying the most frenzied and extensive example of bloodless cultural conquest in history.

88) Compare the views of better-educated and far more moral Americans of, say, the fifties with today's dumb-as-a-post, television-trained, live-for-a-good-time, deviant-sex-is-my-right, kill-wombed-babies-on-a-whim Americans. Think how forthright and honest fifties whites were to admit that they wouldn't want a black president, wouldn't live next to a black man, wouldn't want a relative to marry a black man, and wouldn't hide their well-founded prejudices not having been subjected to Hollywood's emotion-building, mind-altering, drive-the-nation-leftward, surrender-good-civilization-to-minorities propaganda machine.

Sound like anyone else we know? I can think of several other voices that seem to always join in this choir macabre. But but no matter how reasonable they sound, all one has to do is look at their jokes to see what they really believe (warning: nasty stuff ahead):
What is misfortune? A bus full of Jews falling of a cliff right into the sea. What is a disaster? If they can swim.

Whats the difference between a jew and a pizza?
The pizza doesnt scream when you put it in an oven!

I like black people . . .
. . I used to have some black friends 'till my dad sold them!

I'm sorry, I won't print any more. These are by far the tamest ones. Most would embarrass Archie Bunker, and all really piss me off. These people are really evil, and not too smart. Someone should school them on what exactly Aryan means:
Aryan is an English language word derived from the Indian Vedic Sanskrit and Iranian Avestan terms ari-, arya-, ārya-, and/or the extended form aryāna-. The Sanskrit and Old Persian languages both pronounced the word as arya- and aryan. Beyond its use as the ethnic self-designation of the Proto-Indo-Iranians, the meaning "noble/spiritual" has been attached to it in Sanskrit and Persian. In linguistics, it is sometimes still used in reference to the Indo-Iranian language family, but it is primarily restricted to the compound Indo-Aryan, the Indic subgroup of the Indo-Iranian branch.

. . .

Because of ethnolinguistic arguments about connections between peoples and cultural values, "Aryan" peoples were often considered to be distinct from Semitic peoples. By the end of the nineteenth century this usage was so common that "Aryan" was often used as a synonym for "gentile", and this popular usage persisted even after academic authors had ceased to use the term in any other meaning than "Indo-Iranian". Among White supremacists the term still sometimes functions as a synonym for non-Jewish "white person."

The Aryan race was a term used in the early 20th century by European racial theorists who believed strongly in the division of humanity into biologically distinct races with differing characteristics. Such writers took the view that the Proto-Indo-Europeans constituted a specific race that had expanded across Europe, Iran and India. This meaning was, and still is, common in theories of racial superiority which were embraced by Nazi Germany. This usage tends to merge the Avestan/Sanskrit meaning of "noble" or "elevated" with the idea of distinctive ancestral ethnicity marked by language distribution. In this interpretation, the Aryan Race is both the highest representative of mankind and the purest descendent of the Proto-Indo-European population.
