Death camps are being constructed in the Nevada desert where the gays rounded up during the Thanksgiving "pink raids" will be exterminated.
A list has been made of Bush's political enemies and they are all being poisoned.
When Clinton was president we were a color blind society.
Nation of Islam brothers would do car wash fund raisers in local Synagogue parking lots.
