On this Christmas Eve eve, I thought y’all might to take a look at George Wallace and Curtis LeMay’s American Independent Platform of 1968. It’s interesting to compare it to the rhetoric of the modern GOP and also to see how it has morphed somewhat, in the campaign of Mike Huckabee, into a current campaign.
Huckabee takes the rough edges off…he even manages to get praise for his racial tolerance from idiots like Joe Klein. But the Huckster is just as hostile to brown people as any other candidate in the Republican race. Yet, it adds in doses of Wallace-style populism.
