And the hits just keep coming:

12 October 2018

It’s Happening Again In Georgia.

Republican Brian Kemp on Wednesday, in response to the latest accusation that he has blocked 53,000 Georgians from registering to vote, issued a statement that included one particularly noteworthy phrase.

“Despite what you hear or read, the numbers are clear. While outside agitators disparage this office and falsely attack us, we have kept our heads down and remained focused on ensuring secure, accessible, and fair elections for all voters,” Kemp said in a statement through his state office website.

“Brian Kemp refers to his critics as ‘outside agitators.’ You can’t make this stuff up!” tweeted Joseph Crespino, professor of 20th century U.S. history and chair of the history department at Emory University in Atlanta.

“There are only two scenarios here. Either this is just a term that is in the back of [Kemp’s] mind and he doesn’t think about it. That’s unfortunate because it means he’s ignorant — that Brian Kemp doesn’t understand the long history of this term and how it’s been used,” Crespino said. “I think, given the way Brian Kemp ran his campaign in the primaries, that he used it with every intention and that he knew the kind of way that term resonates.”

One of Georgia’s most famous white supremacists, the late Gov. Lester Maddox, often used the term “outside agitators” to dismiss those who protested his refusal to serve three African-American Georgia Tech students at his restaurant in Atlanta.


Absolutely - you CAN'T make this stuff up. The Republican party has devolved into the racist slime of the 1920's-1950's.

That's what they mean when the say they want to make AmeriKKKa great again.

And it seems to be working a treat.

Tom Paxton, 1964: "We Didn't Know"

We didn't know", said the congregation, signing a hymn in their church of white
The Press [fake news?] was full of lies about us, preacher told us we were right.
The outside agitators came, they burned some churches and put the blame
On decent southern people's names to set our Colored people aflame
And maybe some of our boys got hot and a couple of niggers and reds got shot
They should have stayed where they belonged! Preacher would have told us if we'd done wrong.


Tom, dammit, we need you now more than ever.

Best,

Bill

It's on Fox News, (click) so it must be the truth, right? Mr. Trump has proved himself to be a bigot time and time again, but this is particularly blatant. I'd call for his impeachment, but I think it's easier to keep this guy under control, than it would be to control Pence. Pence is just as bigoted, but he seems to be so noble....
It is absolutely unbelievable that a President of the United States should speak like this.

Fox News[sic] 5 July 2018

President Trump made waves at his Montana rally Thursday night while challenging Senator Elizabeth Warren's claims of a Native American heritage.

"We.... will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian."


The Washington Post 15 October 2018

Trump promised $1 million to charity if Warren proved her Native American DNA. Now he denies it.

Another reporter brought up his promise of a $1 million charity donation.

“I didn’t say that,” Trump said. “Nah, you’d better read it again.”


What a piece of work is Trump....
