do you really want to see "who divides us"....?

Post by I am Z » Tue Nov 13, 2018 6:29 pm

here it is, a fine example of yellow journalism:



https://www.yahoo.com/news/gop-senator- ... 58667.html


Mississippi Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, a white Republican, joked about going to a “public hanging” during a campaign event this weekend, a comment her Democratic challenger, who is black, called “reprehensible” and divisive ahead of a runoff election later this month.

“If he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row,” Hyde-Smith said on Sunday morning in Tupelo, Miss. during an event with a cattle rancher. It’s unclear what context the comments were made under, although she appeared to be praising the rancher, Colin Hutchinson.

unclear? yep...but you still framed it as a "whitey=bad" thing, didn't you?

Mississippi. Where joking about lynching is a much safer political move than apologizing for joking about lynching.

It is a fact. In the modern context current republicans including Cindy Hyde-Smith are nothing like a deep southern Democrat Governor from 1904 Mississippi. Mississippi today isn’t even remotely like it was in 1904. :nesaitpas:

Keep telling fairy tales. There are quite a few dim witted enough to believe you. Even some dim witted enough to support D Trump.

And the political metamorphasis of Mississippi's bigots deserves a text book of its own.

Seriously you think the south of 1904 and the Democrats that ran it is anything like the south of 2018 and republicans that hold office in it ? We are talking night and day here.
