I mean the vast, vast majority of voters who would not vote for Barack Obama in November based on race are probably firmly in John McCain’s camp already.
Got that? He didn’t call Republicans racist, but he did say that all racists are Republican.
This is a smear. There is nothing that makes Democrats immune to racists. When it comes to organized racism, the Democrats are the historic kings — does the word “Dixiecrat” ring a bell? Anyone look at Robert Byrd’s history lately? Did everyone just forget that the KKK was the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party in Reconstruction? The same Democratic Party that tried to surrender the Civil War to the South? Has it been completely whitewashed that Al Gore Sr. and Robert Byrd voted against the Civil Rights Acts?
I’ve known actual, honest to goodness racists, in East Texas and the hills of Kentucky and Tennessee. Every one of them has been poor, uneducated, unsuccessful… and die hard, Yellow Dog Democrats.
