Raw Story — In a post last year on the Vanguard News Network forum, Cobb said anyone who lives on his property would be required to fly a “racialist banner” — such as a Nazi flag — 24-hours a day. They would also be required to try to “import more responsible radical hard core [white nationalists]” and become a legal resident of the state so they could vote in local elections. He plans to rename the city “Cobbsville.”
“Imagine strolling over to your neighbors to discuss world politics with nearly all like-minded volk. Imagine the international publicity and usefulness to our cause! For starters, we could declare a Mexican illegal invaders and Israeli Mossad/IDF spies no-go zone. If leftist journalists or antis come and try to make trouble, they just might break one of our local ordinances and would have to be arrested by our town constable. See?” he wrote.
Oh, we see alright. A friendly stroll, a gentle morning goosestep past pale, responsible neighbors right down memory lane in Cobbsville, perhaps modeled on a quaint village called Obersalzberg, some memorabilia from 1938 Berlin … Maybe a snappy group salute thrown in to Corporal Cobb as he stands, brave and defiant between the Long Flags of Liberty. Ahh, the innocence lost.
As bad as it initially sounds, maybe this isn’t a terrible idea. Think of it as fascist segregation now, fascist segregation tomorrow, and fascist segregation forever, thus giving the rest of us a well deserved break. On the political side, well, I don’t know if Ted Cruz would be real popular in this particular demo, although I have no doubt he wouldn’t think twice about throwing out brown-skinned red meat and take a whack at Harvard educated elites without risking his vast collection of personal irony meters.
But for the rest, let us hope Mr. Cobb succeeds wildly. Imagine a sort of national, suicidal gerrymandering that would tip the rest of the GOP right off the right edge of the 6000 year-old flat-earth. I dream of real-life clown-car skits were everyone from Michelle Bachmann to the Lessor Paul all had to journey to remote North Dakota and kiss the Klan ring, instead of sucking up precious media coverage and diatomic oxygen in the Iowa Caucuses. I can think of a few Texas lawmakers who should seriously consider moving there.
A boy can dream.
