Well, that's only if you look at 100% of the actual definitions.

If you take his personal definition, he's the most non-racist person to ever be not racist.

And no one really saw this as the next logical step from the Rightwing after the masturbated to every kind of race-baiting imaginable fore decades? They hit the vinegar stroke with trump to be sure, but they were well on their way to climaxing to GOP dog whistles and racism for decades. This toothpaste was never going back in the tube before they all exercised their right to say the N word in public again

From the Daily Beast story on this:
When asked if he was racist, Bryant told news outlets, "It's according to what your definition of the word racist is. What a lot of the public's definition is, I might be a racist. But according to what the true definition of a racist is, absolutely not."

Stalin was wrong- it's not who counts the votes, it's who controls the ability to vote at all.

Its the next step the playbook for them.

Pretend its no big deal and push forward. Running for mayor is the perfect opening, it lets them claim their opponents are resorting to personal attacks and not focusing on the issues like having a mayor that openly hates some of their own constituents isn't a big farkin' issue.

Enough time passes and they can claim it never happened, even with footage of it out there because no local news org will pull it out to counter the lie, not when there's other dumb shiat to talk about like football.

His story is that he was quoting the current mayor.  According to this article the mayor denies it.  Someone's lying.

There's like 6300 people there. It's not a matter of restricted time at least. You could have 3 polling places and have everyone vote in like 4 hours.

This is how you get people who would normally not give a shiat to vote... so we'll see what comes out of the woodwork in that town. And considering how openly racist some of them are, it can really only go in the direction the racists don't like. People tend to be cute about their racism, because being open about it makes it basically indefensible and gets a LOT more attention.

If you only give your supporters the right to vote, everyone can see that it is a kangaroo election.

If you let everyone vote and mess with the counts in secret, you can maintain a facade of democratic fairness.

So, if you are a corrupt bigot who opts for the first option, you are openly declaring that you care not a wit for democracy.

If you opt for the second, you're just as terrible, but know the power of appearance of propriety.

Okay, I'm not sure if you've been in a coma for the last few years, but maybe I need to remind you that lately having shiat like this recorded has garnered a pretty significant response.

You might be sitting at home jerking off to this outcome... but that's not what happens in the real world anymore.
