CRITICIZE A KLANSMAN, get attacked from the “left.” Well, a lot of “blue Texans” were Klansmen, back in the day, so it makes sense. . . .Key words: "back in the day."
"Back in the day" extremely conservative Southerners were still Democrats, out of political expedience. Today, all of those extremely conservative Southerners, like Putz, are Republicans.
Wonder why that happened?
It's kind of self-incriminating when Southern wingnuts like Putz gleefully point out that Southern wingnuts were unabashed white supremacists before Lyndon Johnson drove them all out of the party, but then -- self-awareness isn't their strong suit.
