"Will this energize and galvanize white separatist movements who have stridently rejected the increase of government powers through the Department of Homeland Security and the Patriot Act?"

Oh, yes indeedily. But worse, if my experience at my workplace is any guide, it will also give throat to many Whites who've felt muzzled these long years. I really fear many now have at last the final "evidence" they needed to legitimize barely contained prejudices. You've probably all noticed by now how many race trolls have stormed out from the woodwork. 9-11 pitched left vs right like nothing before and Katrina pits black vs white like no event prior. The seas are roiling. This gets worse before it gets better.

Fuck me, but I think I see now why many Black Republicans back destruction of AA programs and the like. I'm beginning to suspect that the progroms of dependency have tilted into the "more-destructive" side of the scale. I've long felt that AA et al ought to have some kind of definite timeline to it. Now I'm thinkin it's time to get on the hoss with a whip and hurry to that last day. Remove the last crutch/booster and it's sink or swim. I bet we swim.

I have no doubt that we swim. Everyone won't swim. Some will drown - but that is life. I say, whatever we're dealing with here is not as harsh as the life of a some savanna animal waiting to grow to maturity and have it's pristine throat chewed by a lion. As bad as it can be, it doesn't usually get to that level. Swimming would be the only choice...

Check out LKS recent post about the guy going off on George Will. One of the guy's points was that certain conservatives have bartered America's competitive spirit by endorsing things like low income tax credits. Whether or not you agree with the theory and practice, the essential point is the same...oddly enough, conservatives and liberals seem to change seats with respect to optimism or pessimism on human beings rising to the occasion. even it's a theoretical subterfuge.
