Racism, real and imagined in 2018

Racism, real and imagined in 2018
When I was in the GOP, there was a belief among many conservatives that racism ended shortly after the Civil Rights Act became law in 1964. The way theory goes, that kind of behavior is now against the law, and people ceased the reprehensible acts of redlining, making Blacks use separate bathrooms, and denying African-Americans...

Billy Graham proved that one can support Israel and still be an anti-Semite

Billy Graham proved that one can support Israel and still be an anti-Semite
Billy Graham died at age 99 last night. That is a long life. He walked with Presidents and was called America’s Pastor. His fundamentalist thunder filled stadiums and ballparks around America. It was the old-time tent revival gone downtown and it played to massive crowds. I have an Uncle who is a Southern Baptist Minister.... Read more »

It is painful watching the GOP lose all sense of decency

It is painful watching the GOP lose all sense of decency
It is painful to watch a once principled political party disintegrate before my eyes. I spent four decades in the Republican Party upholding principles that no longer exist in the GOP of Donald Trump. The man in the above photo is a white supremacist, anti-Semite, and Holocaust denier. His name is Arthur Jones, and he... Read more »

The new Republican Party values are why I left the party

The new Republican Party values are why I left the party
Long before the vulgarity of Donald Trump, many expressed worry about the decay of conservatism. It has decayed to the point that it no longer exists in practical terms. Champions of traditional conservative values, like Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, and Phil Graham, would not recognize what passes itself off as conservative today. It is doubtful... Read more »

The GOP openly embraces racism

The GOP openly embraces racism
Does one have to be a racist to be a Republican today? No, but to be a “good” Republican, one must become an apologist and racist denier. I spent more than four decades in the Republican Party at high levels. I saw the racism in the background. Like many of my fellow neocons who admired... Read more »

Racism and bigotry were part of the mainstream of GOP politics long before Donald Trump and Steve Bannon

Racism and bigotry were part of the mainstream of GOP politics long before Donald Trump and Steve Bannon
We called them our useful fools. Racists and bigots elected Richard Nixon in 1968 and 1972, Ronald Reagan in 1980 and 1984, and defeated George H.W. Bush in 1992. They were back in 2000 and turned out for his son George W. Bush. Bill Kristol, Editor of the Weekley Standard, former Chief of Staff for... Read more »

I’m embarrassed about my four decades with the GOP

I’m embarrassed about my four decades with the GOP
Today is a good day to be a Democrat. Today is a shameful day to be a Republican. There is not a day that goes by that I am not embarrassed about my past affiliation with the GOP. Not only was I a member of the GOP, but helped GOP candidates raise money and win... Read more »

Donald Trump has changed the once proud GOP into the Manson Family of politics

Donald Trump has changed the once proud GOP into the Manson Family of politics
Donald Trump doesn’t have a base. Like Charles Manson, he has a cult of personality that is oblivious to crimes, lies, and Trump’s childish behavior. It wasn’t just a quip when candidate Trump said he could walk out on 5th Avenue in New York and, “shoot somebody” and not lose a vote. He was serious,... Read more »

I’m ashamed that I once was a Republican

I’m ashamed that I once was a Republican
The events of this weekend in Charlottesville and President Trump’s reaction has made me ashamed that I ever was a Republican. The party has become a source of shame for the decent people of the USA. The photo above is a screenshot from twitter. It shows the praise President Trump received for his “condemnation” of... Read more »

Donald Trump is helping White Supremacists

Donald Trump is helping White Supremacists
Since leaving the GOP and writing about it two weeks ago, the White Supremacists have found this blog and have been writing on my posts and sending me emails. You don’t see them because I will not allow anything I write to be a vehicle for racism and antisemitism. Readers need to be warned, there... Read more »
