The racism is bad.
The unapologetic ignorance, at times, seems possibly worse.
What follows is the result of reviewing 100s of hours of recordings, dating back decades. This is by no means comprehensive, but most of what was quoted below is certainly illustrative of the man’s backward beliefs, his base bigotry, and his inability to grasp basic concepts of geography, history, religion and science.
It’s frightening, just how representative this collection of quotes is. And they’re authentic. Each and every quote has been sourced and vetted. All of them on tape. All of them reviewable by you, should you care to dig them up. They’re all out there. At this point, facing this unmitigated disaster of bigoted, ignorant vomit, you have to ask yourself: How could anyone on Earth choose this man to represent them in the highest office of the most powerful nation on the planet?
Could you? Read on, and decide for yourself.
“That’s how ya got your Chinatown, your Harlems, your Little Italy…all the grettos (sic).”
“These colored people are always trying to use a social situation to raise their station.”
“I (saw on the news) where the CIA is drugging people up. Maybe somebody injected some of that LSD in the lady’s cottage cheese.”
“They’re picking bananas in Brazil and them (sic) Indians down there, they don’t care about what you look like.”
“If he don’t go calling the cops “pigs” or one of those other epilets (sic), he’ll be alright.”

“California is the home of where is gonna occur the world’s worst (catastrophe)…sittin’ on a shelf out there… three states on that shelf, California, Oregon and Missouri (sic).

“I mean if God had meant for us to be together he’d have put us together. But he put you over in Africa, and put the rest of us in all the white countries.”
Can you see it now? His own words. And when I meet someone who thinks, “this man should be the leader of the free world,” I’m aghast. I can’t imagine anyone in their right mind supporting the man who said these things as President. And here’s the kicker. He’s not. The man who said these things was Archie Bunker, played brilliantly by the late Carroll O’Connor in the T.V. Show All In The Family, which ran on the CBS network from 1971 to 1979
But admit it.
You couldn’t tell the difference either.
