Right Cross

Hillary Clinton laid out the truth about Donald Trump and his flirtations — and sometimes embraces — with the far right nutsery and white racists yesterday.  Here’s the transcript.

You can expect the usual suspects in the press will come out with the usual “both sides do it” meme somewhere along the lines of “Scientist Claims Earth is Flat; Others Disagree.”  But it is about damn time that someone besides certain bloggers pointed out that the Republican candidate reeks of racism that goes far beyond the dog whistles and sly suggestions that non-existent voter fraud occurs in “certain places” and that all black people live in desperate poverty and there’s no hope.

And you can expect defenders of the GOP for saying something along the lines of “But that’s not who we are.”  Yeah, it is and has been that way for the last fifty years.
