Skip to comments.NC NAACP President Compares Republicans to George Wallace (A Democrat)

On yesterdays edition of All In with Chris Hayes we were greeted with narrative creation at its finest as host Chris Hayes attempted to define the arguments in favor of Voter Identification laws in North Carolina as merely the spoils of victory as opposed to any type of actual reasoned position.
HAYES: If a skeptical person looks at whats going on in north carolina and says, look, this is why we had elections, we had elections, the republicans won, they won the governorship, they havent had it since 1988, theyve got all three branches of state government for the first time in over i believe a century and now you have to live with the consequences because thats the way democracy works[.]
Its always joyous when a host hides behind the if someone were to ask method of journalism. That someone is usually themselves or an imaginary two-dimensional stereotype that supports their belief that their ideological opponents are rubes and racists.
Hayes guests gratefully accepted his narrative and joined in the lighting of the straw men with enthusiasm.
Said Rev. William Barber, North Carolinas NAACP President, the reality is thats not how government is supposed to work because even when you have a majority, you can not violate the constitution. Im not sure who would disagree with this statement, other than the imaginary racist that Rev. Barber wishes so badly to exist as his opponent.
This group of legislators are acting like theyre the George Wallaces of the 21st century, he added, just in case you forgot this was about racism. Considering the party lines in this debate, George Wallace, a Democrat, may not have been the most well thought-out choice.....

What a maroon.
Hey Racebaiter Idiot!
Not only did the Republicans free the slaves;
Wallace was a RAT, Bull Connor was a RAT, the Segregationists were RATs, the Slave owners were RATs, and the Confederates were RATs.
The Klan were RATs formed by Confederate veterans who were RATs, for the purpose of keeping blacks from voting for Republicans.
And you sir are also a RAT, whose agenda is also to keep blacks from voting for Republicans. That is why your organization has earned the dubious title of:
THE KLAN WITH A TAN!
I have lived in Alabama ALL of my adult life. I NEVER voted for George Wallace. But he got things right a long time ago:
“There is not a dime’s worth of difference in Republicans and Democrats.”
That statement was made as he was running for President as an independent.
George Wallace was the best speaker I’ve ever heard. My father-in-law drug me there (I was a GW opponent thinking he was a stupid demagogue); but left respecting him. Much like Joseph McCarthy, he had his faults; but he was right and isn’t that supposed to count.
what on earth will the NAACP do with Michael ( aka Martin Luther ) King, jr??? a Republican???
