Its a Democratic thing – they cozied up to the leaders of the USSR, CHina, Vietnam, Cuba, Venezuela, etc. for decades. As long as they were against the US, the Democrats loved them.
There is nothing new about race-hustlers. In his 1911 work, “My Larger Education,” Booker T. Washington wrote: “There is a class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. … There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”
King’s 1963 address from the Lincoln Memorial was his most famous, but you have likely never read King’s 1966 assessment of racial violence in Barack Obama’s hometown of Chicago: “This is the most tragic picture of man’s inhumanity to man. I’ve been to Mississippi and Alabama and I can tell you that the hatred and hostility in Chicago are really deeper than in Alabama and Mississippi.” King added, “Those who are associated with ‘Black Power’ and black supremacy are wrong.”
No it was Mcgovern that flipped the southern Democrats to voting Republican. The “Great Society” did as much damage to poor and working class whites as it did to Blacks, because a family couldn’t receive welfare if they had a man able to work as head of the family. Incidentally, prior to the “Great Society” and welfare, a higher percentage of low income black families had married couples as the heads, than whites in the same income range. And the cities with the most problems (Chicago, Baltimore, Washington, etc., were headed by Democrats then as well as now – and have continued to go downhill ever since.
And you belong to a party that went nuts because a non-politician with a tan beat a corrupt politician.
My income went from 50,000 to 70,000, mostly due to the tax cuts. That puts me pretty solidly middle class.
Truth – most of the wars in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries started as trade wars.
And the fruits make great jam – once you get past the thorny skins.
Better than the smell of cat pee (a cat marked out doors by my wife’s chapel overnight, the smell penetrated because we had rain overnight.)
You’re wrong as well – this was initiated when the Ottoman Empire was effectively dissolved at the end of WWI (i.e. 1919).
