Racist Republicans

"But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down. That would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky." - Bill Bennett (From the September 28 broadcast of Salem Radio Network's Bill Bennett's Morning in America)

If you are any type of rational human then you are asking yourself what kind of racist crap is that? This was the response to a question a caller asked on Bill Bennett's radio show. Why is this middle-aged white man any different than any other "good 'ol boy"? He has power.

Bill Bennett is one of the driving forces behind the republican party and a "Distinguished Fellow" at the Heritage Foundation, a republican "think-tank" (if you don't know about the Heritage Foundation then you know nothing of the Republican party). In addition to this, Bennett was Secretary of Education during the Reagan administration and served as Drug Czar. Imagine that. No wonder our education system is years behind other countries. This super-intelligent racist was running the show.

Even more important (as to who William J. Bennett is and why his comments are so important and revealing) is the fact that he has edited or written various George Bush speeches and nearly became the chairman of the Republican National Committee just a few years ago. This is not just another pig-headed racist spewing hate; this is the republican party speaking to us. This man is revered by the party. His views are devoured and turned into actions. In order to understand the republican party you must listen to what the leaders of the group have to say. How many more republicans have to make such outrageous statements revealing their true self before America sees them for the snakes they are?


While Bennett focussed on black babies, he just as easily could have said all poor babies. The kinds of things that people like Bill Bennett and Barbara Bush have said are the purest kind of reflection of what these people believe. They can protest that they didn't mean it, or that they said it only theoretically, but it is the kind of truth about their beliefs they can't avoid.

They always use the "out of context" excuse for their semantic fumbles, but it's baloney.

What's remarkable is the loyalty of the Republican cult-members in automatically defending the remarks. They won't call a spade a spade. They come to the defense of any Republican and make a million excuses for their false gods.

Oh they have no problem calling a spade a spade, that is if the spade is refering to a black person.

True. A spade is a spade if a "liberal" has a slip of the tongue.

We take 1 step forward and 60 years back. Great job Bennett (sarcastic). Why don't you stick to what you know...the craps table.
