Who’s A Racist?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 31, 2018

WHILE VARIOUS IGNORANT PEOPLE WITH NO KNOWLEDGE OF HISTORY ARE BUSY TEARING DOWN STATUES OF PEOPLE WHO DON’T FIT THEIR IDEOLOGY, THEY ARE IGNORING ONE SIGNIFICANT STRUCTURE IN WASHINGTON. IT IS THE RUSSELL SENATE OFFICE BUILDING, NAMED FOR THE LATE GEORGIA DEMOCRAT SENATOR RICHARD RUSSELL.

YES, RUSSELL WAS A GREAT LEGISLATOR, BUT HE WAS ALSO A DIED IN THE WOOL RACIST. RUSSELL STOOD SOUNDLY AND PROUDLY AGAINST EVERY PIECE OF CIVIL RIGHTS LEGISLATION THAT CAME HIS WAY. HE ALSO OPPOSED INTERRACIAL SWIMMING AND MINGLING OF THE RACES IN THE MILITARY.

DEMOCRATS HAVE A LONG HISTORY OF RACISM, BUT THEIR RE-WRITING OF HISTORY, STARTING IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, HAS LEFT MANY PEOPLE IGNORANT OF THAT HISTORY. IT WAS A DEMOCRAT WHO FOUNDED THE KLAN. DEMOCRATS IN THE SOUTH SUPPORTED SLAVERY AND OPPOSED INTEGRATION INTO THE 1960S. DEMOCRATS TRIED TO KEEP BLACKS OUT OF COLLEGES AND PUBLIC SCHOOLS. IT WAS REPUBLICANS WHO WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE VOTES THAT PASSED THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT AND OTHER LEGISLATION.

SOME SENATORS WANT TO RE-NAME THE RUSSELL BUILDING FOR JOHN MCCAIN. THAT’S BETTER THAN THE CURRENT NAME. I’M CAL THOMAS.
