Just watched Haley Barbour on MSNBC

Eddie Glaude did not say what Barbour meant when he said that the Dems had moved left and the GOP were more "purist". He meant WHITE, he meant racially pure, do not take it any other way. Big ole dog whistle for the racists in the south.

Pretty sure Eddie knew it too, what a disgusting example of a human being is Barbour.

2. Absolutely "Pure" meant white and Eddie came close (imo) to calling him out.


Barbour is a "has been" racist ass. Don't let the door hit 'ya Haley.

3. I wish that someone could have pulled out a

Nazi hat and handed it to Barbour to make the point that, purity to them means whites only.

5. "Morning Joe" must have been hurting for decent guests today.

Haley Barbour is like a walking, talking version of a hyper-white, hyper-conservative lawmaker, like something out of a poorly-written political novel, but for real. He's always turned my stomach, and he always will.

6. Well, that is barely a dog whistle

But considering the source, I'm not surprised. Barbour is so hardcore old school southern racist.

19. I lived in Mississippi

for almost two years when I was a teenager. I heard some pretty strong southern accents, but Barbour's is so exaggerated, he seems like a caricature of a southern racist good old boy. If he is on TV, I have to fast-forward or change channels. I can't stand the sound of his syrupy voice.

7. All you had to write was Haley Barbour

and I knew it was about race and white power. Barbour has been around for a long time and has never deviated from that view.

10. In 1994, Barbour was RNC chair during the GOP National Convention.

He characterized the diversity in the Democratic Convention as a "zoo". I will never forget that.

13. It may backfire. Repub senate candidate Chris McDaniel

generated some unpleasant blowback recently by calling Robert E. Lee a man of "unimpeachable integrity." Apparently that was his notion of what lead Lee to turn down Lincoln's request to lead the union armies in favor of fighting to protect his slaveowner class and slavery.

In any case, he fought back against criticism by offering his followers in Mississippi a racist poll, inviting them to say whether Lee was a hero or a villain. Response was 91% villain. Imagine his surprise.

Btw, just looked, and the appointed female Republican "incumbent" is holding first in MS's special election for U.S. senator, black Mike Espy is 2nd (!), and McDaniel behind them in third. Morning Joe featured McDaniel on his show in MS this morning.
