Joe actually tries to work across the aisle. It;s how things are supposed to be done.

Look here is Bono with Jesse Helms. Means at least as much as your attempt at shiatposting.

No no no, you see.  American activists aren't "murdered," they're just "found dead."  Completely different.

I think I recall a fear of being "suicided" from some protesters last year.

Cops absolutely will murder you in the USA.
If you protest, keep your face hidden, do not wear identifying / branded clothes.  Turn off all electronic devices that could be stingray'd.  Do not park near the event...  The security culture checklist is massive because they absolutely WILL kill you if they think you're a leader.

Why can't modern Republicans be witty and erudite, like William F. Buckley?

Oh wait...

"In much of the South, what is so greatly feared is irresponsible, mobocratic rule, and it is a fear not easily dissipated, because it is well-grounded- that if the entire Negro population in the South were suddenly given the vote, and were to use it as a bloc, and pursuant to the directives handed down by some of the more demagogic Negro leaders, chaos would ensue... .True reform in the South would involve raising the standards for voting-and raising them impartially, for black and white alike. ... For the time being the imposition of such a test would undoubtedly mean the disqualification of more Negroes than whites, but that is merely a mechanical reflection of the existence of a disparity in training and accomplishment at the present moment which is precisely what the fuss is all about. What, after all, does the national association mean when it calls for the advancement of colored people?"

First, I must admit that I was strongly opposed to Vice-president Nixon before meeting him personally. I went to him with an initial bias. I remembered his statements against Helen Gahegen Douglas and also the fact that he voted with the Right Wing of the Republican Party. These were almost unforgivable sins for me at that time. After meeting the Vice-President, however, I must admit that my impression somewhat changed. I have frankly come to feel that the position and the world contacts of the Vice-President have matured his person and judgement. Whether he can have experienced a complete conversion, I cannot say. But I do believe that he has grown a great deal and has changed many of his former opinions.
Since I am quite interested in civil rights, I might say just a word concerning his views at this point. I am coming to believe that Nixon is absolutely sincere about his views on this issue. His travels have revealed to him how the race problem is hurting America in international relations and it is altogether possible that he has no basic racial prejudice. Nixon happens to be a Quaker and there are very few Quakers who are prejudice from a racial point of view. I also feel that Nixon would have done much more to meet the present crisis in race relations than President Eisenhower has done. It is my humble opinion that much of the tension in the South and many of the reverses that we are now facing could have been avoided if President Eisenhower had taken a strong positive stand on the question of civil rights and the Supreme Court's Decision as soon as it was rendered in 1954. His popular appeal could have made it possible for him to speak to the conscious of this nation on this pressing moral issue. Nixon, I believe, would have done that.

I have found Nixon to be a very personable man. He has one of the most magnetic personalities that I have ever confronted. Certainly, his personality will carry him a long, long way politically. Of course there is a danger in such a personality, and that is that it will be turned on merely for political expedience when at bottom the real man has insincere motives. I hope this is not the case with Nixon. He has a genius for winning people. I watched him in Africa. He is a superb diplomat. He knows what to say, when to say, and where to say. A reporter friend of mine who travelled on the Nixon plane to Africa, said to me that when they left the States, ninety-eight per cent of the reporters were opposed to Nixon. When they returned, ninety-nine per cent were wildly enthusiastic about Nixon. He had won almost every man and left them with a new appreciation of his ability and judgement.

Finally, I would say that Nixon has a genius for convincing one that he is sincere. When you are close to Nixon he almost disarms you with his apparent sincerity. You never get the impression that he is the same man who campaigned in California a few years ago, and who made a tear jerking speech on television in the 1952 campaign to save himself from an obvious misdeed. And so I would conclude by saying that if Richard Nixon is not sincere, he is the most dangerous man in America.

Very sincerely yours,
Martin L. King, Jr

Great_Milenko: Weatherkiss: Lincoln was a Republican and also Dixiecrats are fake news therefore Dems are the real racists.

Lincoln thought about sending liberated slaves back to Africa.    He may not have supported slavery, but he wouldn't have wanted his daughter marrying one.


Lincoln thought alot different stuff about slavery  -- but as early as 1836 he knew it was a dumb, limited and immoral system.

Whether it was practical or even do-able to just emancipate everyone and burn the whole system to the ground and still save the Union, of that he was not really sure. But that was always his preference.

Even if he was a "didn't want his daughter to marry one" type of racist.
