Today’s America is a scary place for far-right troglodytes, my friends.

It’s a place were “teh geys” are allowed to hold hands in public and have matrimonial “butt secks” in their homes without the threat of a public stoning.

It’s a place were Shakira Law threatens the very foundations of our nation with telenovelas and tamales.

It’s a place where death panels decide whether you’ll get an appendectomy, a proctological exam, or a free pass to see the latest in FEMA coffins.

It’s a place where our Food Stamp President works ceaselessly to spend our country into back alley bankruptcy, a scary place where we’ll all be forced to fellate stained copies of Mao’s little red book behind a dumpster filled with aborted babies.

Now the trogs have a new bogeyman to worry about: the Amish.

Except, well, the “Amish” aren’t really the Amish. It’s just code for a term which far too many right-wingers still wish they could use in public and get away it, and that word is “nigger.”

Don’t believe me. Click this link to the Free Republic’s topic page for the term “Amish.” (Be sure to check out the line marked “keywords.” Not only do commenters use it often, it’s a popular tag.)

Update: 02.11.15: To the Freepers who are just now seeing this post, “Amish” has been a well-known code word for “blacks” for some time, although I must say I didn’t know it was also used as a substitute for “Muslims.” Love, a damn dirty hippie.
