Salvador Reza Discusses Joe Arpaio on GRITtv, and Dennis Gilman's Video on Nazis in Arizona
Dennis Gilman's outdone himself yet again in his latest video, this time focusing on the November neo-Nazi march to the state Capitol, and the links between the Nazis and the nativists. It's a creepy, almost apocalyptic vision of Arizona dominated by racist politicians such as state Senator Russell Pearce, done to the tune of Tom Waits' Rain Dogs, electronic music by local composer D.warf, and some guitar by Gilman himself.
Gilman's latest: Nazis and nativists in Sand Land
At seven minutes 20 seconds, it's well worth the time. One of Gilman's better efforts, in my estimation. I particularly like the way he segues from J.T. Ready leading nativists in chants of "U-S-A., U-S-A" at the state Capitol in 2007 to Ready marching in the Nazi parade a couple of weeks ago.
