More tapes of former President Richard Nixon saying some crazy racist things about blacks and Jews popped up in the news Tuesday. The complaints about “the Jews” weren’t new ones. Nixon’s vehemence for all lox and Moses-lovers is legendary. He wasn’t too wild about blacks either, but hey, since every tape sheds a new light on why Pat Buchanan is totally wrong about his former boss being some great American wonder president, on these we learn that he was for abortion in cases of “black and white” couplings and … rape.
Nixon worried that greater access to abortions would foster “permissiveness,” and said that “it breaks the family.” But he also saw a need for abortion in some cases — like interracial pregnancies, he said.
It’s nice to know that interracial boots-knockin’ that produces brown babies is akin to a woman’s sexual assault. I mean, wow. Just wow. Under Nixon’s logic there would be no Barack Obama, no adorable Sasha and Malia and Michelle would be just another tall, successful lady we’d never heard of. There would also be no Halle Berry, Alicia Keys, Tia and Tamara Mowry, Lenny Kravitz (black AND Jewish!) and several of my classmates, friends, neighbors and relatives would not exist.
That said, did this man tape EVERYTHING? I half expect to hear sound recordings of his poops being released in 2020.
