The Tookie Williams Vigil at San Quentin
The Tookie Williams Vigil at San Quentin: I don't know how I feel about Tookie or his execution, but it seems sad that he has become a rallying point for the left in California. The white left that is, apart from a few African-American politicians and their bodyguards. Or should I say that part of the left who have a fuzzy enough notion of what fascism is to think that Arnold is literally a Nazi, that George Bush should be executed, that George Bush's America (rather, 'Amerikkka') is more or less fascist in fact...
Having said that, I prefer them to the (also white) people who turned up with cardboard placards saying 'Hang the Bastard', 'Cook Kookie' and so on...
