Rick Tyler, An independent candidate for Tennessee's 3rd congressional district has paid for at least two billboards in Polk County, one of them plastered with beatific Caucasian faces with "Make America White Again" emblazoned in large letters, the other depicting the White House ringed with confederate flags with the slogan "I have a dream" on it. Twelve hours later the signs were taken down, most likely by the billboard owners.

When pressed about the message Rick Tyler responded that he has no hatred for people of color, he just wants america to go back to ""1960s, Ozzie and Harriet, Leave it to Beaver time when there were no break-ins; no violent crime; no mass immigration." "I believe the majority of people like it" He goes on to say.

Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Ryan Haynes stated "There's no room for this type of hateful display in our political discourse. Racism should be rejected in all its heinous forms in the Third Congressional District and around the country." Congressman Chuck Fleischmann also gave a statement today "I totally and unequivocally condemn the billboard and Mr. Tyler’s message and will vigorously fight any form of racism in the 3rd district of Tennessee or anywhere else in the nation."

He seems to think what America needs is to go back to the way it was in the 60s, make white people the super-majority in America again... this is the same sort of speak that preceded programs of ethnic cleansing in other countries. Man, what a piece of work.

The way I see it is he is either a racist or he is stupid..... I mean seriously how did he think people would take that message?

Well, the current social solution appears to be to simply shoot him because of his beliefs.

I, on the other hand, while support his right to free expression, would not vote for him and would strongly encourage others to vote for someone else.

But hey, that's just me.

What's to be said?

He's delusional.

As DB said, he's got a right to say it, and I've a right to say he's delusional, and that folks shouldn't vote for him.

What agenda? That this delusional wanna-be Congress critter has a right to say this stuff? DB is correct, he does, just like we have a right, a duty even, to point out his delusions, and urge people not to vote for him.

That agenda??? What would you rather be said/done about him?

Sorry.

But it's been 48 hours and people want to blow it off like it's been a century ago and ancient history.

There's a truth to what I'm saying though.

If people don't like him, there is a process in place to get rid of him.

It's called an election. NOT assassination.

Well sort of stupid but no stupider than Mexicans dragging Mexican flags through the streets of SW US or inner city Black Power BS.

Well, I would also like to return to a time of less crime, less illegal immigration and no wars. Unfortunately, I don't see how that is going to happen.

Wanting things to be better isn't really a bad idea.

You're usually one of the most level headed partisan people on this site.

It was one dude.

The right have had their fair share of nuts, but I'm not going to use them as examples to represent the whole right. Nor will I do it in this case for the left.

Yes people have said dumb things on the internet, do we pick today to take that seriously?

I'm just going to point out that this was from last year, and he obviously didn't win. Just amazed that someone spent the money and had the balls to do something this egregiously contemptible publicly.

I'm worried this overt white-supremacy is getting more normalized.

In many respects, we already have segregation.

How many times does one have to say, "When the pendulum swings too far one way, eventually it will swing back the other?"..
