The classical poet A.E. Housman wrote, “For nature, heartless, witless nature.” He might have said the same thing about history, which like nature is neither cruel nor kind; right, nor wrong; it is simply indifferent. It has, as they say, no dog in the fight.

It was of course the Democrat Party that was late recognizing the wrongs of slavery; it was Democrats that wrote the Jim Crow laws and enforced them with fire hoses and attack dogs; it was the progressive hero Woodrow Wilson who segregated the federal government and locked Blacks out of jobs; it was the Democrat party that filibustered passage of the civil rights acts of 1964 and ‘65 and in fact has opposed every piece of civil rights legislation written since the end of the civil war.

Reid’s remarks might also be more properly directed at Democrats given that the reasoning used by new liberals of the 21st century and Democrats of the 19th century bear a striking similarity.
The opinion by this man is brilliant. He tells of the Democrats' use and abuse of Jim Crow in the current century, which cannot be anything favorable. As he wrote at the end of the opinon,

Reid invokes the image of America’s original sin in order to preserve the left’s inflated sense of its own virtue. In 2010 who but the most backward of all thinkers would side with the defenders of slavery? Who indeed?

I wonder if Phillips can stay away from Reid's minions when they come looking for him for telling all that truth. Naw, Dirty Harry knows better than to do something like that this soon after he pulled his trick. Also, he knows better than to kill a black man for exposing his lies and mistruths.

Great article. Thanks.
