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.

I was a Cold Warrior.  If you go to back issues of Washington Representatives from the years 1987 through 1989 and look up my name under Hill and Knowlton, and Government Research Corporation, you will see a long list of defense firms who were my clients.
