racists sure find a welcome home in the Republican Party ever since the sixties.

This is 100% not true. Do you personally know a lot of racist Republicans?

ABSOLUTELY!!! We had the misfortune of living in Atlanta for a few years. We were surrounded by them. Being a white male in his 60's they all thought I was part of the club. The shit they would say to me regarding neighbors and business associates was appalling. In the early 2000's. A real life experience.

Yes, I grew up in the South, and no sooner did the Civil Rights Act get passed when along came Tricky Dick fanning the flames of racism to garner votes from the Dixiecrats and other racists fleeing the Democratic Party, which at that time was the party of the Civil Rights Movement. All over the South I could "fit in" and hear racists speak freely. When Reagan won it got worse, and basically that's where the straw broke the camel's back to bring us to where we are today. Since Ike there haven't been any truly decent Republican presidents, though perhaps Ford was the most benign. Not even George H.W. Bush who ran the blatantly racist Wllly Horton ads during his campaign. But what they've done to support The Chump now classifies them as traitors to the Constitution and the nation, and I believe they should lose their Party status and be designated a subversive organization. Especially after the Impeachment when they showed their true criminal colors.
