There’s Nothing New Under the Sheet

There’s Nothing New Under the Sheet July 24, 2019

We hear a lot of racists claim that they aren’t racist, the real racists are the ones who accuse them of racism. One might thing this is a new argument, but George Wallace, who might as well have worn a white sheet and hood to the governor’s office in Alabama every day, made this exact same argument, word for word, in 1968.

Also George Wallace: “In the name of the greatest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny, and I say segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.” Nah, he wasn’t racist at all. And you’re a racist if you think he was! Heck, I bet there wasn’t a single racist bone in his body. In fact, he was the least racist person you will ever meet. Right, Donald Trump?
