At Least Obama Made The Trains Run On Time

This is a bit confusing:

Right-wing author and anti-Obama crusader Erik Rush called on members of the U.S. military to remove President Barack Obama from office.
...
Rush recently proclaimed that the “synthetic symbolism” around the death of former South African President Nelson Mandela was overblown. Mandela, he wrote, “you know, didn’t do much.”

South Africa was better off under apartheid, Rush argued, saying, “Apartheid went away, great. There are South African blacks who have told friends of mine they wish it was back because the country was safer, if you can believe that.”

So South Africa was better under a repressive regime?  Shouldn't Rush then be thankful we live under tyranny?

I would guess that if someone pointed out that the American right has long past the tipping point into fascism that someone would yell "Godwin's law" or something stupid like that.

It's a pretty weak excuse for tyranny that lets idiots like Rush incite insurrection without interfering to silence the sedition. When I see his ugly head dripping gore from atop a 12-foot, military pike, then I'll start worrying about tyranny.

Right. And the Palestinians are far better of under Israeli Apartheid too.
