An Admission Of Guilt

4 horsemenMost reasonable people realized that the Tea Party is just a reincarnation of the Confederacy and to that extent they have taken over the GOP, who are called conservatives, which in essence the same thing. Most of us know it was the Dixiecrats, who were the folks fought to keep slavery alive, morphed into the GOP. Some of this ilk has said, the Civil War was an invasion on the south because they who interpreted the Constitution correctly, which is why the succeeded.

Today these people express the same ideology as the confederates of old. Yesterday, on the Daily Show went to North Carolina to look at the effects of new voting laws where they interviewed Don Yelton who shared a candid admission that some say was breathtaking – I say true rather than depressing. This guy Yelton is on the North Carolina Republican Party Executive Committee who vigorously defended the new voting laws with racist ramblings.

The Daily Show comedian/reporter Aasif Mandvi asked him about the effects of the new laws, Mr. Yelton was forthcoming with the lack of a need for the restrictions.

“Right here in Buncombe County there’s always one of two that voted twice a year,” Yelton says. “That’s one or two out of sixty thousand” voters, he admitted.
When Mandvi pressed Yelton about the real reason for the suppressive changes to voting in the state, the GOP leader came clean.

“The law is going to kick the Democrats in the butt,”Yelton admitted.
And who is going to be affected by the law? Yelton, who had already admitted to being considered a bigot, was forthcoming with examples.

“If it hurts a bunch of lazy blacks who want the government to give them everything, so be it.”

Don Yelton’s open admissions are both disturbing and telling as it, like Romney’s 47 percent comment, clearly illuminate the kind of denial of bigotry that exists within the hearts of these people. Of course, as is usually done for damage control the bigot has resigned but he leaves all of his like minded buddies to continue the insurgency. And that's my thought provoking perspective...
