Solutions, Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow?

Around here, you still see them: the folks with jacked-up pickup trucks with gun racks and little bumper stickers of the Confederate flag and “support our troops” magnets on the fenders.

Or Cadillac SUV’s with fresh-looking pro-Bush stickers and “support our troops” magnets; to be fair, they usually have American flag stickers rather than the stars-and-bars. Whatever guns they have are not advertised by the gun racks. The big pickups are seen less and less here in Bend; go to the neighboring towns like Redmond and LaPine, though, and there they are, driven by skinny young guys with cowboy hats. Local color.

These folks who live on the right edge of the political road, though, are as technologically sophisticated as the rest of us. There are scores of right-wing blogs and web sites out there in the cyber-ether. And they communicate across class lines.

World Net Daily is an odd-ball web site: crypto-nazi, among other things. Simply Appalling leads with a nice quote from them, with a couple of insightful comments:

Solution of the Day

... he [George Bush] lied when he said: "Massive deportation of the people here is unrealistic – it's just not going to work."

Not only will it work, but one can easily estimate how long it would take. If it took the Germans less than four years to rid themselves of 6 million Jews, many of whom spoke German and were fully integrated into German society, it couldn't possibly take more than eight years to deport 12 million illegal aliens, many of whom don't speak English and are not integrated into American society.

—Vox Day, "novelist and Christian libertarian" in his column at WorldNetDaily

But will it be a final solution?

Vox, of course, is Latin for voice; Day, I think is a pseudo-pun on God, as in Vox Dei: the Voice of God. His other www name is Vox Populii: the voice of the people.
