Well, this story from Slate is certainly inconvenient for the liberal narrative
A new Reuters/Ipsos poll paints a particularly depressing picture of the U.S. electorate’s opinions on race. The main takeaways from the survey, which was released late Tuesday: A significant slice of Americans expressed racist views against blacks, and those who identify as Donald Trump supporters are more likely to fall into that group, though Hillary Clinton supporters are definitely there too.
Can we call them “deplorables”?
But here’s a better question: During the century that the Democratic Party enforced Jim Crow segregation, blocked federal anti-lynch laws, oppressed blacks wholesale, etc, did Republicans routinely call them all racists? Maybe the GOP should have.
Here’s another question that Hillary really ought to made to answer at one of the debates. We know that Edith Wilson ran the country when President Woodrow Wilson was incapacitated by a stroke in 1919. That’s one of the reasons we passed the 25th Amendment, dealing with succession in the case of an incapacitated president. What if Hillary is incapacitated: Will she surrender power to Vice President Kaine, or will Bill take charge of things and rule in her name? After all, we’re getting another “two-for-the-price-of-one” deal if we return the Clintons to the White House. Just what will Bill’s role be in a second Clinton Administration?
Is there really any guess what the real answer to this question is?
