At this point only the truly devoted and the truly deceived can deny what is playing out. Donald Trump is doing as president what George Wallace did as governor of Alabama—using words to incite feelings of revulsion and detestation toward “the other,” men and women who are the “wrong” race or the “wrong” ethnicity.

Trump’s Words ArePoison

I saw former Governor George Wallace on the Merv Griffin Show.  He told how he overcame his past hatred. He said he kept dreaming about and remembering when he was hospitalized after he was shot and paralyzed. 

He said he remembered being so frightened when four people turned hi in a Stryker Frame every two hours. Most nights  all the night shift nursing staffs were Colored women. He began to think of how they did all they could to help him recover by relieving physical and emotional discomfort. He told on an older Colored woman who scratched his nose.

I believe if George Wallace could overcome I can't know that anyone is beyond redemption. I do believe We Shall Overcome.

Quote

...   As recounted by Stephen Lesher in his 1994 book, "George Wallace: American Populist," the former governor was pushed up the aisle and spoke: "I have learned what suffering means. In a way that was impossible {before the shooting}, I think I can understand something of the pain black people have come to endure. I know I contributed to that pain, and I can only ask your forgiveness."

In 1982 Wallace expressed the same sentiment before the SCLC. He has apologized during a television interview...

I also believe in redemption. That is the love message of Christ, I believe.  

The selection that you quoted was actually the intended quote from the link that I shared, just for clarity. 

Your story telling is an important asset.

Trump isn't going to lose to any of the current Dems running especially the ones going over the far left cliff.  Biden is your only hope and he's a walking gaff machine with a history of plagiarism.

People that support someone that makes up new words, lies on a daily basis, committed adultery and is a racist have no reason whatsoever to criticize Biden on anyone for that matter.    

It's sad that people would rather have him than a Republican of integrity.  

Nope zero credibility with any insults you throw the "Dems" way.

I'm a Trump supporter and you on the left dole out hate and violence on a daily basis and Trump pushes back and he's the bad guy.  Trump points out the truth and all of a sudden he's a racist because you on the left can't handle him pointing out the facts.

That was very nice.

But it was unfortunate, that it took a life-altering event, such as an assasination attempt, to get Wallace to turn his life around.

I know some people believe better late than never, but keep in mind, when Wallace was in his prime, and in a position to affect change, he remained a racist.

Many people change, for the better, when staring down their own mortality.

It is shame, really.

My mother was verbally and emotionally abusive towards me as a child and teenager.

As she has aged, and realized that neither of her children are very attached to her, she has changed her attitude.

It would have mattered more to me, if the changes would have occurred when I was a child.

The damage has already been done.

Not buying the "Trump as a victim rhetoric" either.  He always takes the low road.  Being attacks from the opposite side is what comes with being the President.  Surely he can take it as a President should with maturity and dignity. 

Naw, he can't do it.

Detroit Resident Dies After Trump Administration Deports Him to Iraq, Report Says

Quote

The man, 41-year-old Jimmy Aldaoud, was an Iraqi national who was born in Greece, but came to the U.S. when he was a child, Politico reports. He had never lived in Iraq and did not speak Arabic, but was deported amid the Trump Administration’s immigration crackdown.

He died because he didn't speak the language and could not access insulin.

Interesting.

i wonder why his family left Greece when he was a child?  Why in his 20+ years as an adult didn’t he take care of his immigration status?  He didn’t learn any Iraqi from his family?  There was no way to be communicated that he was a diabetic and needed insulin?

Only the predisposed Trump hater would have a view so clouded by their bias would conclude that this mans death was at the hands of the Trump administration.

Only a sycophant would dismiss the idea of accountability for Trumpian policy and procedure. Making blanket statements is definitely easier, thanks for demonstrating!
