Remember that moment in November 2008, following the election of President Obama, when serious news
Rick AKA Dick
commentators actually bandied around the idea that we might be living in a "post-racial America?" Apparently nobody bothered to tell yahoo/U.S. House candidate Rick Tyler, who's currently running as an independent in Tennessee's 3rd Congressional District.
Tyler has erected a campaign sign that says, "Make America White Again," and a second sign juxtaposing language from Martin Luther King's, "I Have a Dream," speech with a picture of the White House. A White House festooned with confederate flags, that is.
Tyler also told WRCB news he was nostalgic for TV shows likeOzzie & Harriet, and the "Leave it to Beaver time when there were no break-ins; no violent crime; no mass immigration." And so on.
Because, you know, TV is real.
According to the New York Daily News Tyler made a post on his website naming Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump as an inspiration. That post has been taken down.
