National Review conservatives have been supporting a racist all along pic.twitter.com/kwRtbJ1rPq— Jeff Giesea? (@jeffgiesea) July 31, 2019
Remember when GOP got all outraged & fanned controversy when I pointed out how Reagan used racism as a political tool to keep white people poor & people of color poor too?— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 31, 2019
Well, here we have it.
Like many racists, Reagan spoke it behind closed doors. @TheAtlantic has the story. https://t.co/rHX7vqlwHM pic.twitter.com/NIZzzn863d
I’ve been labeled a “racist” and “white supremacist” by groups like the SPLC and ADL. Unlike Ronald Reagan, I don’t use racial slurs though. I don’t describe black people as apes or monkeys or anything like that. I don’t want to take away their gibs either.
I believe that racial differences exist. I believe it is foolish to pretend those differences don’t matter because winning the genetic lottery matters a great deal in a free-market economy. I’m ethnocentric in the sense that I identify with my own people and take their side. I think it is cruel to tell welfare queens who are born with a < 85 IQ that their predicament in life is their own fault.
Should we disavow Ronald Reagan? If we disavowed Ronald Reagan whose views on race are essentially the same as those of the Chimpire, would we be punching right?
