The Only Good Racist Is A Dead Racist

Good riddance, Jesse Helms. A racist if there ever was one. Not a patriot like President Bush and the Republican National Committee would like us to believe.

From RNC Statement On The Passing Of Jesse Helms:

RNC Chairman Robert M. "Mike" Duncan released the following statement today:

"The Republican Party has lost a true champion in the passing of Jesse Helms, but it could be no more fitting that we begin the celebration of his life on Independence Day. His patriotic spirit and dedication to the tenets of our great Party will be remembered and idolized long after our mourning has ended, as will his contributions to the state of North Carolina, the United States Senate, and the many charitable causes he supported. We keep his family in our prayers and keep his conservative ideals with us always."
It seems that Mr. Duncan wants us all to know that The Republican Party likes racists, that one of its tenets is racism, and they never want to forget it.

From Former Senator Jesse Helms dies at 86 by Tom Ferraro:
"Laura and I are deeply saddened by the passing of our good friend and a great American," President George W. Bush said in a statement. "Jesse Helms was a kind, decent, and humble man and a passionate defender of what he called 'the Miracle of America."'
Yet more lies from our never truthful president. Jesse Helms was not a “kind, decent” man. Helms was a racist. Racism is unkind and indecent at the very least.

If you don’t know what kind of man Jesse Helms really was I suggest that you read Think Again: You Don’t Know Jesse by Eric Alterman and George Zornick.
