Saturday, November 8, 2008 Nader Interview

You won't read a similar interview on the Daily Kos, Huffington Post, or Democratic Underground. They are too caught up in Obama fever when the surface rants are all said and done. Regardless of what anyone thinks of Nader, he does represent many views of the left and he is newsworthy. Alex Cockburn does another great job here. The lead of that page is informative also, a look under Raum Emanuel's rock.

I think Nader made a crucial mistake in saying that white men owe women and non-whites 300 years of servitude. That divisive rhetoric that panders to hate-filled motivations. Mocking a white man and telling him to sit in the back of the bus is not more moral than doing the same to anyone else because of gender and skin color. It's still wrong. More evil doesn't reduce an evil influence. An interesting Nader article from Deroy Murdock of the National Review Online (NRO).
