From the “Party of Lincoln” to the “Party of Nathan Bedford Forrest.”
They aren’t even trying to hide the racism any more.
Chancey Devega comments (follow the link for the rest of his ascerbic, but quite trenchant comments):
Why does the Tea Party GOP consistently fail in its efforts to reform their racist habits and bad ways? The answer is not complicated. White racism and contemporary conservatism are intertwined in the Age of Obama and the post-civil rights era. Asking the Tea Party GOP to publicly disavow the white racists in its midst, and to sever all ties with racist conservatives (white, black, and Other), would be like amputating your foot with a spoon coated in wasabi and without either anesthesia or a tourniquet. It ain’t gonna happen. Such willpower is beyond the reach of most mortals.
