If you ever want to know what is at the heart of my admittedly negative, intractable view of Republicans, here is a prime example of the Republicans I grew up around:
I came of age in an area where white people worshipped a president who seemed to despise poor people and people of color, in a state where a former grand wizard of the Klan attracted the majority of white voters in his bid for governor, in a community in which people intertwine their nostalgia for the confederacy and its this-is-white-man's-government mantra with their allegiance to a Republican Party that appealed to them with a wholly unsubtle southern strategy.
This guy, who is enraged at the thought that he might not be able to do his part to "keep the nigger outta office," is from a parish that borders mine.
Why anyone is shocked!!! at the response of some members of the Republican base is beyond me. Come to my neck of the woods.
