I abhor racism.
But I’ll take a racist over a communist any day of the week.
Racists are Gandhi clones when compared to communists.
I will send this POS a copy of Col. Frances Rice’s “Open Letter To Democrats”; it is meant for all those democrats that are historically handicapped.
She is a conservative black woman who lists all that the Republican party has done FOR the civil rights movement over the decades in opposition to the democrats and their successful attempts to keep the blacks on the plantation and voting democrat. She’s wonderful. Cohen is offal.
MOST dems need a history lesson.
Cohen now on my growing list of race-baiters participating in the new form of slavery.
He should cry to the members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Oh wait, they didn’t let him in.
This guy is anomaly.
Most southern Jews have more sense.
Oh yes...he’s Jewish...very
Attended the Reform Temple on West End here in Nashville when he was at the state house.
He also trumpets his Jewishness ad nauseum when it suits him and is active in Jewish causes here.
An uber Jewish progressive....arguably the most leftist politcian ever elected in the Volunteer State.
His benefactors here whom I know a few are the Eskinds...very rich clan of some Democrat and some GOP Jews whose grandaddy made a fortune in Nashville medical venture capital...contemporaries of the Frist and Massey families
Most lefty Southern Jews are not so strident but his bloodline is fairly fresh not antebellum
he almost single handedly got smoking banned in TN at restaurants while at the State House
represents a nearly total black Memphis district and it took a planetary alignment to get his pinky arse elected...doubt he will last long...some Ford (who are arguably less liberal) will take his place
Wallace best effort was as a third party independent in 1968 where he won 5 states ( and 1 in NC) and 10 million votes ...he had appeal beyond just his segregationist views to some...the outsider...against big government ...for the little man and against radicals
He thought hippies like me were vermin and we thought he a Nazi...we were/he wasn’t...lol..he actually had combat time against the Japs
He was actually funny looking back...great wit....Nixon coulda used some...his vision had just run it’s course and he failed to see it till later in life...after he got shot bad.
He also has Midtown, which is largely urban white aging hippies.
And it’s not a Ford running against him. It’s King Willie Herenton.
He'll have to do more ~
lol...one tidbit...nothing to do with Jewish really..aside from Zevon’s dad.
He did Warren Zevon’s eulogy.
Obama MSM says that the Tea Party is NO threat to the Dims.
Though amplifying widespread voter anger at the political establishment, the tea party movement is unlikely to dramatically affect the congressional elections - unless their local affiliates forge alliances with Republican candidates. And how likely is that? Republican operatives look at the possibility of GOP-tea party collaborations with some anxiety, and many tea party activists frankly don’t want to see them.
