  1. I said some years ago that White people have run out of ideas. Boy, thinking that they can make the Confederacy and Apartheid and the Third Reich work in the 21st Century if they simply throw the collective resources of the United States behind them is intellectual bankruptcy at its most desolate.

    “The Circus-Circus is what the whole hep world would be doing on Saturday night if the Nazis had won the war. This is the Sixth Reich. The ground floor is full of gambling tables, like all the other casinos … but the place is about four stories high, in the style of a circus tent, and all manner of strange County-Fair/Polish Carnival madness is going on up in this space. Right above the gambling tables the Forty Flying Carazito Brothers are doing a high-wire trapeze act, along with four muzzled Wolverines and the Six Nymphet Sisters from San Diego …

    This madness goes on and on, but nobody seems to notice.”
