I Cannot Deny That The President Is A Racist

“The past is never dead. … Actually, it’s not even past. – William Faulkner

After carefully researching the issue I cannot deny that the President is a racist.

No, not Donald Trump. He doesn’t have a racist bone in his body. I’m talking about a real racist.

MSNBC has the story:

Lyndon Johnson said the word “nigger” a lot.

In Senate cloakrooms and staff meetings, Johnson was practically a connoisseur of the word. According to Johnson biographer Robert Caro, Johnson would calibrate his pronunciations by region, using “nigra” with some southern legislators and “negra” with others. Discussing civil rights legislation with men like Mississippi Democrat James Eastland, who committed most of his life to defending white supremacy, he’d simply call it “the nigger bill.”


Johnson was a man of his time, and bore those flaws as surely as he sought to lead the country past them. For two decades in Congress he was a reliable member of the Southern bloc, helping to stonewall civil rights legislation. As Caro recalls, Johnson spent the late 1940s railing against the “hordes of barbaric yellow dwarves” in East Asia. Buying into the stereotype that blacks were afraid of snakes (who isn’t afraid of snakes?) he’d drive to gas stations with one in his trunk and try to trick black attendants into opening it. Once, Caro writes, the stunt nearly ended with him being beaten with a tire iron.

Nor was it the kind of immature, frat-boy racism that Johnson eventually jettisoned. Even as president, Johnson’s interpersonal relationships with blacks were marred by his prejudice. As longtime Jet correspondent Simeon Booker wrote in his memoir Shocks the Conscience, early in his presidency, Johnson once lectured Booker after he authored a critical article for Jet Magazine, telling Booker he should “thank” Johnson for all he’d done for black people. In Flawed Giant, Johnson biographer Robert Dallek writes that Johnson explained his decision to nominate Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court rather than a less famous black judge by saying, “when I appoint a nigger to the bench, I want everybody to know he’s a nigger.”

Well, there it is. I hate that word. To the best of my knowledge that is the first time that word has appeared on this blog in 9 years. In fact, that word has been banned, so if you put that word in a comment the comment will disappear into the ether and reappear in the spam filter.

Yesterday morning I was sitting on the throne and reading the Merced Sun-Star when I found the editorial quoted below. It originally appeared in the Sac Bee. It’s a good thing I was seated on the toilet when I read it.

“It takes a lifetime to build a good reputation,” Will Rogers once said, “but you can lose it in a minute.”

This certainly seems to be the case with former President Ronald Reagan, who served as California’s governor from 1967 to 1975. Just a few awful seconds of a 1971 conversation, secretly recorded by then-President Richard Nixon, is all it has taken to indisputably recast Reagan as an unabashed racist.

Unabashed? Ronald Reagan was unashamed to be a racist?


President Donald Trump’s increasingly racist rhetoric has stunned political observers, yet he’s simply playing to a constituency that was cultivated over decades by people like Nixon and Reagan. They may have operated on a more subtle level, saving the worst of their bigotry for private conversations instead of declaring it in tweets. Yet the core principle remains the same: racism.

Increasingly racist rhetoric?

Did I lose a few days again? Did Trump call somebody the N-word? Because I have never seen Trump say anything racist. I’ve seen him deliver plenty of insults and some epic put-downs, but most of his targets were white people, and he almost always lets them take the first shot.

Why are we talking about Trump anyway? This is supposed to be about Reagan.

While some political observers wish to cast Trump as an anomaly of history, the truth is that he’s a logical heir to the bigoted lineage of his predecessors. In 1964, the Republican Party began using the “southern strategy,” a ploy to win over white voters in the south by stoking racial anxiety. In 1969, President Nixon launched the drug war as a way to lock up black people, according to one of his top aides.

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people,” said former Nixon domestic policy chief John Erlichmann in a 1994 interview with journalist Dan Baum. “We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news.”

Yeah, hippies didn’t really smoke pot, and heroin was not a scourge of the black community. Nixon made that all up. Heroin and weed were both legal until Nixon came along.

Why are we talking about Nixon? I thought this was about Reagan?

Reagan’s critics have long pointed out both the implicit and explicit racism in his statements and policies.

“If an individual wants to discriminate against Negroes or others in selling or renting his house, it is his right to do so,” said Reagan during his 1966 campaign for governor.

Now we’re getting to it. This is just pure racism. There is no other explanation. It’s not like Reagan had some conservative ideology that viewed individual liberty and property rights as almost sacred or anything. The idea that in a free country a person has a right to be a racist is loony tunes. If that was true the ACLU would be defending the right of Nazis to march through a Jewish community.

Yes, Reagan’s racism was there all along, in plain sight, for everyone to see. Yet, for decades, it was also easy for him to get away with it. Not anymore. Times have changed, and the taped conversation with Nixon lays bare Reagan’s unadulterated racism.

I used to think that “unadulterated” meant kids playing without parental supervision. But I know what “plain sight” means. Which is weird, because for years the Democrats have been saying that Reagan was a racist but he kept it hidden.

So what the hell did Reagan say, anyway?

The day after the United Nations voted to recognize the People’s Republic of China, then–California Governor Ronald Reagan phoned President Richard Nixon at the White House and vented his frustration at the delegates who had sided against the United States. “Last night, I tell you, to watch that thing on television as I did,” Reagan said. “Yeah,” Nixon interjected. Reagan forged ahead with his complaint: “To see those, those monkeys from those African countries—damn them, they’re still uncomfortable wearing shoes!” Nixon gave a huge laugh.

Great googley moogley!

I thought that what LBJ said was bad, but this is just beyond the pale. Oh, . . wait . . . is “beyond the pale” racist?

This post has growed like Topsy so I’m not going to defend Reagan’s comment other than to say that it is hardly the worst example of racism I’ve ever seen. Here is an article by Jay Nordlinger that explains in detail why calling Reagan a racist is bullshit. Here is another by Paul Kengor at American Spectator.

I have two points I want to make:

1. We should judge people on the totality of their lives, and not on a single comment or incident. And not all racism is created equal. At one end of the scale, you have guys wearing white robes and hoods burning crosses and lynching black men and blowing up black churches. At the other end you have a racial comment that was made in private and that hurt no one. There needs to be a single standard that covers everyone, not one standard for Republicans and another for the Democrats.

2. It should come as no surprise that 2 1/2 years after the election the Democrats still have not accepted that Hillary lost. They still haven’t made their peace with the results of the elections in 1968 and 1980. The comment they uncovered was made almost 50 years ago, and both participants in the conversation are dead. They won’t let Reagan and Nixon rest in peace.

The things that Nixon nearly got impeached and had to resign over are mere infractions compared to what Obama’s Deep Staters were doing. Ronald Reagan left office 30 years ago. He died and was buried 15 years ago. Nonetheless, the Democrats want to disinter his bones and trash his life and his legacy.

There is an old saying that “winners write history.” Not if the Democrats have anything to say about it. If the GOP doesn’t stop them they will write the textbooks that will say that Donald J. Trump was an open and notorious racist who colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.

If the Republicans stop them from turning fake news into fake history 20 years from now they will try again in 30 years. If they are stopped in 30 years they will try again in 40 years.

Yogi Berra famously said, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” Democrats say, “It ain’t over ’til we win.”

    “White Nationalist Terrorism”=talking point of the day. And for many weeks to come. And it’s all Trump’s fault. And no mass murders ever occurred before January 2017. And no left wacko ever committed mass murder. Twitter has ramped up its hatred of Trump, Trump supporters, and white people.

      Same here. I wasn’t one of those hardcore (well, semi maybe, lol) lefties, but I was a Dem. And it took the 2008 primary to open my eyes, to start reading and considering other points of view. That is when I discovered I wasn’t really a democrat. I tried to explain that to my sister a long time ago, but she never understood, she thinks I was just mad because Hillary lost in 2008. It’s just something you have to see for yourself, you can’t convince others to see what they don’t want to see.

    Zeeland removing wind turbines after several issues

    HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Wind turbines in Helder Park in Holland Township are being torn down.

    The city of Zeeland built the turbines in 2009 in an effort to use more sustainable energy.

    The turbines were placed outside the city limits due to zoning issues. The park was chosen by engineers who believed it was the best place to generate wind.

    It cost the city about $457,000. Right after the turbines went up, the city says things went downhill.


  15. Cisco says:

    Speaking of Chicago, gang members arrested by CPD with literally a small arsenal of semi/auto firearms and plenty of ammo.
    Are the sitting in jail until trial?
    Because to many people of color are in Cook County jail, Crimesha, the States Attorney, decided that posting of a bond and home monitoring for the felony arrestees would keep the city safe.

    So the CPD grabs a car load of gangbangers with three semi-automatic weapons:
    Chicago police seized several assault weapons and armor piercing bullets during a traffic stop on the city’s South Side Thursday night.

    Three people of interest also in custody, Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony [google-me] announced on Twitter Friday.

    Officers seized the assault weapons during a traffic stop, and were “in the right place, at the right time,” [police] said at a press conference Friday.
    Here’s a quick snapshot of the seized weapons:

    Great job all around.

    But then they got a hand from Crimesha’s office:
    Jordan Hill, 25, has to pay $1,000 and he can walk out of jail today after yesterday’s felony gun arrest for posession of these weapons of war and armor piercing bullets. He was issued a 10,000 D-bond w/ electronic monitoring.
    Quite frankly, it’s amazing crime isn’t ten times higher what with Crimesha letting everyone go on low bond or signatures every day of the week.
    Labels: county, crime, un-fucking-believable

    While Don Surber, Scott Adams and some others were my sanity through the 2016 election, #WalkAway has become the stabilizer since then (well, from a year ago). The gun grabbing monsters always show up after every mass shooting. The WA discussion group is not shareable from FB, so here’s a copy/paste from a “rant” 🙂 I’m not the perfect mom or grandma, but damn, my offspring aren’t shooting up schools, churches and malls. I grew up in the 50’s-60’s, I raised my kids in the 70’s-80’s-90’s, all was pretty cool then, I was allowed To Parent and there were only two genders. My, have times changed, right?

    In light of El Paso, a few thoughts on the “reasons” for the rise of mass shooters in America:

    I’m going to catch hell for this, but let’s compare the 50s to now.

    #1 on the Reasons List: Television and movies. The Lone Ranger; Gunsmoke; Davy Crockett; Wagon Train; The Roy Rogers Show, to name a few, ALL featured guns and bad guys versus good guys. However, the good guys always won and there was a moral, life lesson in the show about responsibility for actions, and consequences of bad behavior. Moral life lessons were prevalent in EVERY show: Father Knows Best; Leave it to Beaver; The Mickey Mouse Club; I Love Lucy; The Nelson’s, all featured stable, two-parent homes where the parents were in charge.

    Fat forward sixty years…Bart Simpson’s “Don’t have a cow man!” The Family Guy…find me a hit show that features an intact family or one in which the parents are in control? Find me a show in which the father is portrayed as something other than a total moron?

    #2 on the Reasons List:
    Public education, if you could call it that. Where did all of the America hating hippies (Democrats all) disappear to? Colleges, universities, and your public schools. They removed history, replaced it with “social studies” and altered or dumbed down the greatness of America. Our children were taught “capitalism bad,” “America bad,” “Founding Father’s were slave holders therefore REALLY BAD!” History was no longer presented in context just in liberal revisionism. Students were indoctrinated to hate and distrust their own country.

    In the 50s gun education was taught in rural communities. Kids went to school with guns on racks in their pick-up trucks, yet somehow no one was mass murdering anyone.

    We also began to believe in “the rights of these little darlings.” 🥴 We removed discipline in schools – no more paddling for bad behavior – ( I actually had a student say “f-you” to me, “there isn’t a thing you can do to me” and she was right!) That is a wonderful message to children, AND the “inmates” began to run the asylum.

    #3 on the Reasons List:
    The Alphabet Soup media was much more circumspect. They knew, but did not report, JFK’s naked pool parties with young interns when Jackie was out of town. (I know this for a FACT because my Father was in the WH Press Corps under the Kennedy and Johnson Administrations). The press didn’t go there. Right or wrong, there was respect for the office.

    The press never attacked, never bloviated, never used blatant vitriol to “report the news.” Here are the facts, you decide, as opposed to let us tell you what a clueless moron your president is. Journalism DIED the day Woodward and Bernstein got a book deal, then a movie deal where they were played by Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman! Now it is every “journalists” deep desire to become famous by “gotcha journalism.” It isn’t about reporting the news, it is about “look at me, look at me!”

    #4 on the Reasons List:
    The hippy warriors crusaded against mental health facilities and had them shutdown. (Yes, there were bad ones but reform don’t crucify.) Those in need of mental health facilities now make up 90% of our homeless population.

    Instead of therapy, Big Pharma has a DRUG for that. 80% of mass shooters have been on some form of psychotropic drugs. Alcohol and cigarette ads were banned from television as “destructive to our nation’s youth” and we replaced them with a plethora of DRUG ADS! 😳🥴🙄 How’s that for wisdom? We’ve bombarded our children with pills to fix everything!

    We have lowered or erased every standard this country once had in the name of progress and diversity on the altar of humanism and globalism. Our Founding Father’s created an entirely new system because they abhorred all previous ones as ineffective and trampling upon basic human rights. WE THE PEOPLE grew fat, dumb, and complacent, we have allowed it to happen.

    One last thing…even the American Psychiatric Association agrees that before a child is ten, they are subject to more than one HOUR of violence per day, whether through a video game, television or the movies. Is it any wonder they are immune to human suffering?

    The Dayton asshole was a lefty who supported Antifa. I’m pretty sure the El Paso guy was too despite the media saying he supported Trump (the “manifesto” clearly shows he did not but he did support a bunch of lefty policies like universal income). And the speed at which the media dropped the garlic festival guy makes me think he was a lefty too.

    Anyway, my theory with these Antifa assholes is that this is related to the last 20 or so years of the left basically indoctrinating young boys that men are no good, women are better, etc. This generation of males have grown up being taught that their natural masculine wants/tendencies are “toxic” so they feel worthless. Groups like Antifa give them a purpose & is an outlet for their aggressions that they were raised to suppress but which if they had been raised correctly would have been directed into things like sports.

    And, of course, a certain % of these lost boys are going to be schizophrenic. Which accounts for these latest 3.

    • SHV says:

      “This generation of males have grown up being taught that their natural masculine wants/tendencies are “toxic” so they feel worthless”
      That’s basically what I told the wife when she asked what was going on with these boys. Over the past 20-30 years, “normal” boy behavior doesn’t fit into feminist norms and these kids are told to conform to the ideal model or they are drugged. Raising a male isn’t easy and normal behavior is now considered “toxic” and is punished. It’s rather ironic that the “educators” who make these decisions are usually at the academic bottom 1/3 in their college entering class.

  42. DandyTIger says:

    So one shooter is a left-winger and one a right-winger. So will the partisan stuff stop? Of course not. Let me guess, we’ll have a fight over who killed more people. Journalism died a long time ago as we know. It was bad enough when it was just partisan crap in the news. Now it’s full of people desperately trying to start a civil war. And let’s not pretend it’s not lopsided. I’m seeing mostly reasonable reactions from friends on the right. Friends on the left are openly advocating for revolution and maybe lining up all conservatives and having the shot. And those are the nice ones.
