[Warning: Ronald Reagan, racism]
It’s been a sort of open question as to whether or not Ronald Reagan was really a racist, or perhaps just a soupçon racist.
Recent material from the archives has settled that issue:
That was 20 years before his diagnosis of Alzheimers. He sounds bright and sharp, like a hardened piece of shit. Nixon, you’ll notice walked by Reagan’s comment with a laugh. Nixon was known to get his racism on regarding a variety of targets. He was a piece of shit who, apparently never looked in the mirror and saw the drunk, dishonored, miserable war criminal looking back at him.
Maybe it’s time for a new meme, alongside “all cops are bastards” namely, “all politicians are pieces of shit.”
I know you all knew about Nixon and suspected about Reagan but now you can transition from “suspect” to “know.”
One of the problems with racism is that it encourages sad mediocrities like Reagan and Nixon to think that they are superior to anybody.
Unrelated: I’ve been a bit quiet the last week, but that is because I’m making an intense push on some buildy stuff and it’s taking a lot of my physical and mental energy. I’ll post some stuff about it when I feel ready, but for now I’m willing to say that the project is going well.
