Jeffrey Lord writes at The American Spectator site today about the Democratic Party and race.
I think he makes a lot of sense.
He particularly reinforced my prejudices in regard to questions of war and peace:
It is striking that Democratic Party history shows a repeated pattern of wanting to declare failure and come home in the Civil War, Vietnam and Iraq or opposed involvement in Grenada, the first Gulf War over Kuwait or stopping the genocide in Rwanda – all wars that involved liberating non-whites.
I’m probably being judgmental, even though I used to be a Democrat myself (never a peace-at-any-price Democrat, but a Democrat).
In any case, this argument certainly does not apply to any Democrat who happens to be reading this.
