A bigot is dead


While I was gone, Jesse Helms has gone to Hell. Hallelujah!

I know this is a blog associated with my professional name, and thus I should be careful... I also know that it is inappropriate to dance on anyone's grave... but Jessie Helms was an unrepentant racist homophobe fuck, and the world is a better place without him. My only regret is that his god didn't take him to burn in hellfire sooner.

EDIT: If you think I may be a bit over the top in my negative feelings towards Helms, and you are thinking "He wasn't really that bad was he?" or "Sure he was racist back in the 60's, but a lot of people were back then" then I urge you to read hilzoy's collection of quotes and stories regarding the man. One thing I will never forget, and soured me forever on him, is that he made a great show of turning his back on Nelson Mandela. This was in 1994, not 1964. He loved him some apartheid. Burning in hell is too good for such a man.
