Kerry Smear Book Publisher Tied to White Supremcists

Well, here's an interesting aspect of the Shifty Boat Liars crap: Regnery, the book's publisher and publisher of various right-wing crap by Ann Coulter and other wingnuts, has ties to the white supremacist movement. Or so says Oliver Willis on his blog.

Willis quotes the Southern Poverty Law Center's website:

William Regnery II, an heir to the Regnery publishing fortune who's a prime mover and shaker in white nationalism publishing, is moving into a new line of business: match-making for "heterosexual whites of Christian cultural heritage."...Promoting white nationalism is nothing new for Regnery — or his family. His grandfather, William I, signed incorporation papers for the America First Committee, an organization that opposed fighting Nazi Germany in World War II. His father, Henry, created Regnery Publishing, one of the major purveyors of books by right-wing attack dogs like Anne [sic] Coulter and G. Gordon Liddy.

This is the great unspoken about the radical right-wing in this country: that its basically a racist movement. They've fooled a lot of decent conservatives about this (mostly through religion) which has allowed the wingnuts to take over the Republican party. There's almost no one who will talk about this, but racism is one of the key drivers behind the radical right.
