Your government enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.

Bush's new press secretary has publicly stood up for David Duke (a former KKK leader who has ran in the presidential primaries) and argued as a Fox News commentator that Bush isn't theocratic or reactionary enough. The selection of Tony Snow as press secretary is an indication that despite the staff shake up in the White House, the Bush regime intends to "stay the course" in its unending war and fascist remaking of society. The fact that Snow was picked despite numerous racist comments says much about what kind of "image" the Bush regime wants to portray.

Just listen to Snow's own words:

"Duke is talking about things people really care about: high taxes, crummy schools, crime-ridden streets, welfare dependency, equal opportunity. A lot of politicians aren't talking about these things."

In writing about a speech by Hillary Clinton to a mostly black audience: "Had she proceeded to distribute fried chicken and watermelon, she would have achieved perfect condescension."

Snow has also defended former Klansman Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) for his use of the "n-word."

With a rabid right-wing Fox News commentator representing the White House to the media, is it any wonder people around the world are angry at the US and wondering when the American people are going to stand up?

The World Can't Wait! Drive Out the Bush Regime!
