Do you mean to suggest that the resemblance of the doe's head to the symbolic "Satanic goat" never occurred to you?

My first reaction (around 2003/2004) to the doe was that I'd stumbled across some sort of "evil racist" site.  Intellectually I would have considered it extremely unlikely that any of you were actual satanists, but to someone unaccustomed to thinking politically about race/immigration (from a pro-rather than anti-white perspective, that is) it was easy to fall prey to thinking I'm being lured into some kind of "evil."

The redesigned site is much more pleasant.  (And you'll soon be used to it enough, you change-hater, you.)

Dog-Whistles From Goldwater To Reagan To Palina really ferocious double-standard, where conservatives are suspected of all kinds of weird stuff for absolutely crazy reasons.
