It's Already Dead, Joe

Joe Scarborough:
The day I hung up on Donald Trump, I asked on air, “Is this what Germany looked like in 1933?” Later, I warned Republicans that Trump’s rhetoric could lead to a brokered convention where “the party will kill itself.” But it looks like I overestimated primary voters in the early GOP contests. A brokered convention is now just the fantasy of Republican elites and Marco Rubio fans. The harsher reality is that the next GOP nominee will be a man who refused to condemn the Ku Klux Klan and one of its most infamous Grand Wizards when telling the ugly truth wouldn’t have cost him a single vote.

So is this how the party of Abraham Lincoln dies?
The "party of Lincoln" died when Richard Nixon adopted his "Southern Strategy" in 1968, when Ronald Reagan kicked off his 1980 campaign in the town where civil rights workers were murdered, and when notorious racists such as Jesse Helms jumped on board. More dirt was piled on that mouldering corpse when George H.W. Bush ran his "the nigras are coming to rape your kids" campaign ad in 1988.

Neither Nixon nor Reagan nor either of the Bushes would have sent Army soldiers to enforce a desegregation order. Unlike President Eisenhower.

Sad ....but ...TRUE!

And the GOP/Republican governance has been re-fighting the Civil War every since!

EVERYWHERE GOP/Republican governance is in place they are fighting tooth and nail to repeal 20th Century American and reestablish Jim Crown.

Maybe it's a good thing that troops aren't deployed domestically
