That’s just a fact.
The one thing which George Wallace had in common with the average bigot who came before and after him is Far-Right ideology.

That's also just a fact.

If George Wallace was not shot, he would have been the democratic nomination for President.

It's always about policy which you wont discuss since the policies and candidate you back are losers and failures. Instead play identity politics and falsely play the race card.

Your posts are nothing more than filthy race card playing nonsense. You lost. Get over it.

Far-Right ideology is a nonsensical race baiting phrase used by the uninformed to deflect from discussing policy.

Donald Trump = Donald Trump.
There has been no one like him ever in the History of Politics in the USA.
You would have to go back before the War of 1812, to find anyone close.
Above all odds, to be on the right side of HISTORY.

No, it’s not. What economic policies of Wallace could be labeled far right?

Quite true... While ignoring the same forces acting on the Democratic Party with all this SJW idiocy.

We need an at large congress and ranked choice voting. Both parties only represent the loony fringe.
