Yes. Much more so than Bush did. If you want chapter and verse I'll be happy to provide it in another thread.
However, that battle lost, and the freedoms for government control that once defined America with it.
Bush and his minions can only be opposed now. And like the Ku Klux Klan that became the White Citizens Councils that became the Council of Conservative Citizens, all we can do is fight til they are all dead, and we have burned their houses down and salted the earth.
Bush has chosen, quite consciously, to make common cause withthose who oppose Black peple having the rights that generation after generation have bled and fought and died for. Faced with report after report of the denial of the right to vote for Blacks he did and said NOTHING, in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 or 2004.
In some ways, I suppose, I am much like Bush, in that I feel, about white supremacists, they way he CLAIMS to feel about 'terrorists'.
As far as I'm concerned, white supremacists, those that support them, those that fund them, those that make common cause with them, are all my enemies, to my last dying breathe. I am, of course, constrained by issued of legality. Were I not, I would, quite cheerfully, kill each and every one of them with my own hand. And of course, that would include EVERYONE involved, at any level, in the suppression of the voting rights of Blacks, including every false challenge of anyone's right to vote.
We ARE enemies, make no mistake. We are not disagreeing parties with the same common interest. We are enemies.
And I will not make the mistake of thinking of current 'leadership' of the country as other than that. I shall treat then as they've treated me.
