Lindsey Has Caught "Mad Trump Disease"

Lindsey Graham figures South Carolina is just fine with black people or at least some blacks that may or may not actually exist.

In a candidate forum with the South Carolina Senate race contenders, Senator Lindsey Graham has said he did not believe there was systemic racism in his state, insisting young black people would be safe, "as long as they're conservative."

Graham made the comment during what was initially going to be another head-to-head debate on Friday with Democratic contender, Jaime Harrison.

The format for the televised event was changed after Graham had refused a request by Harrison to take a coronavirus test beforehand. Instead, both candidates were questioned for 30 minutes each on a range of issues, laying out their pitches for the state's voters. 

"I am asking every African-American out there, look at my record," he said, referring to how he supported historically black colleges and universities. "I care about everybody, if you are a young African-American, an immigrant, you can go anywhere in this state, you just need to be conservative not liberal." 

Or else, what?

Lindsay apparently never heard of Rachel Bitecofer. Angering the other side while dog-whistling your base is a good motivational tool ; for them . After attacking ' liberal blacks ' there will not be enough broken glass in the country to keep them from the poles.

I hope you're right, Rumley. I hope Graham really boosts the black vote and the Democrat vote overall this time around. What's it say about a guy when he backs McCain until he dies and then shamelessly switches sides?

Interesting that he is so proud of "supporting black colleges and universities" but I heard nothing from Lindsey-poo about supporting INTEGRATED colleges and universities. Just another good ole boy!

Well he went pretty quickly from John McCain's faithful hound to Donald Trump's devoted ferret. We can safely say that Lindsey is a man of flexible principles.

Lindsey now stands for what have always been the worst characteristics of the American South.

Hi, Owen. Lindsey has certainly debased himself. I wonder what made him flip so abruptly upon McCain's death? Which face was false? Perhaps some day we'll know what turned him into a Quisling.
