What to Make of Miller's Speech?
Friday, September 03, 2004
By Brit Hume

•What to Make of Miller's Speech?
The latest from the Political Grapevine:

What to Make of Miller's Speech?
Zell Miller's (search) speech last night went over badly not only with Democrats, but much of the media. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee called it, "obnoxious, hate filled, caustic ... wild-eyed, [and] vicious," adding, "Zell Miller is a self aggrandizing old curmudgeon."

Time Magazine's Joe Klein called it, "angry... [and] ugly."

And The Wall Street Journal's Al Hunt said, "[Miller] was passionate when he was a racist 30 years ago ... and now he's passionate as a Republican." Hunt was referring to the fact that Miller once worked for Georgia's axe-handle wielding segregationist Governor, Lester Maddox, something national media never mentioned as long as Miller was a loyal democrat.

Fucking democrats and fucking liberal puke news media...

ETA: sorry if this is a dupe. If it is, please whack it...

Come on give the guy a break. Were you the same 20 years ago?

I hope not. I was a reg'd Dem at the early part of my life, but became a gunner and a Republican later in life. It is no crime to switch parties.

I'm not knocking Zell. He is great! The man speaks the kind of brutal truth that makes liberal democrats cringe in their tu-tus! Hell, he's the best spokesman the GOP has right now!

I was referring to the socialist liberal news media that never in 30 years mentioned the fact that Zell Miller worked for a segregationist governor strictly because he was a democrat. Had he been a republican, that tidbit of information would have made news the first time he campaigned for office.

Still I think Sen. Miller is still not the same person back then as today. At my local swimming pool, one of the people who lived in this area for many years, still remembers that white people going to the pool on Mon, Weds, Fri; black(non-whites) people on Tu, Th & Sa. Of course today, that is long gone.

Why are you guys suprised, he was the key note speaker at the annual NRA bash several years ago, that's when I started listening to him. He is an old South Democrat, which is what the Republican party currently is. Go figure. His party changed , he didn't.

Democrats can't get past the fact that they have already lost the election, it was lost on Sept. 11, 2001.

Zell Miller is the only person who can save the Democratic party, trouble is they don't want to be saved.

His point isn't that he's a different person now,
it is that he is/was a democrat 30 years ago and it was alright in the media for him to be
a "racist" until he gave that speech for the Republicans. Now he is evil.
WTF?? So he wasn't hateful THEN???
Hypocrites.

Funny...I didn't see Robert "Grand Wizard of the KKK" Byrd mentioned in that article

SENATOR ROBERT BYRD, WHO IS CURRENTLY THE SENATE PRO TEMPORE, IS THIRD IN LINE TO BECOME PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

ROBERT BYRD WAS A RECRUITER FOR THE KU KLUX KLAN AND EARNED $10 FOR EACH AND EVERY NEW RECRUIT.

HE HAS NEVER DENIED IT.

There was a time when being a racist was part and parcel to being a southern democrat. Remember "Dixiecrats"? Strom Thurmond ran for president as a "Dixiecrat". He was a good 'ol boy until he seen the light and switched to the Republican party. His ability to change with the times led him to a very long and successful political career. He was 100 years old when he finally retired.
Yes, people change.

What doesn't change is the socialist liberal news media that is very choosy about the news it chooses to publish.

That is not quite right. You did not have to be a racist to being a southern democrat, but you sure in hell did have to deal with racist to being a southern democrat.

There is no evidence that Zell Miller was ever a racist other than guilt by association and plenty of evidence he was never a racist.

Now if guilt by association is the standard lets name some Democrats:

Ted Kennedy – His farther was an avid racist
Robert Byrd – Member of racist organizations
Fritz “Fog-Horn-Leg-Horn” Hollings – Member of racist organizations
Al Gore – His farther was an avid racist
Ect,
Ect,
Ect.

Sen. Robert Byrd, ex-Klansman

EX-KLANSMAN Robert Byrd, the senior senator from West Virginia, casually used the phrase "white nigger" twice on national TV this weekend. Enraged civil rights groups organized a protest campaign against Sen. Byrd and demanded that he undergo sensitivity training ... not. The ex-Klansman, you see, is a Democrat. Democrats can join hate groups and utter the ugliest racial slurs and get away with it because they are Democrats. They belong to the party of racial tolerance and understanding. They're paragons of virtue, and the rest of us are bigoted rubes.

The ex-Klansman showed his true colors when asked by Fox News Sunday morning talk show host Tony Snow about the state of race relations in America. Sen. Byrd warned: "There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I'm going to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I'd just as soon quit talking about it so much."

The ex-Klansman, famed for Beltway blowhardism, should have quit talking a lot sooner. Why any prominent politician in his right mind would publicly and deliberately use the poisonous epithet "nigger" -- which most daily newspapers refuse to spell out, no matter the context -- is beyond comprehension. It's an open question as to whether the rant-prone, 83-year-old Byrd is even in his right mind, but senility doesn't excuse bigotry.

The ex-Klansman's admirers praise his historical knowledge, mastery of procedural rules, and outspokenness. They refer to the Senate's senior Democrat as the "conscience of the Senate." They downplay his white-sheet-wearing days as a "brief mistake" -- as if joining the Klan were like knocking over a glass of water. Oopsy.

This ex-Klansman wasn't just a passive member of the nation's most notorious hate group. According to news accounts and biographical information, Sen. Byrd was a "Kleagle" -- an official recruiter who signed up members for $10 a head. He said he joined because it "offered excitement" and because the Klan was an "effective force" in "promoting traditional American values." Nothing like the thrill of gathering 'round a midnight bonfire, roasting s'mores, tying nooses, and promoting white supremacy with a bunch of your hooded friends.

The ex-Klansman allegedly ended his ties with the group in 1943. He may have stopped paying dues, but he continued to pay homage to the KKK. Republicans in West Virginia discovered a letter Sen. Byrd had written to the Imperial Wizard of the KKK three years after he says he abandoned the group. He wrote: "The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia" and "in every state in the Union."

The ex-Klansman later filibustered the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act -- supported by a majority of those "mean-spirited" Republicans -- for more than 14 hours. He also opposed the nominations of the Supreme Court's two black justices, liberal Thurgood Marshall and conservative Clarence Thomas. In fact, the ex-Klansman had the gall to accuse Justice Thomas of "injecting racism" into the Senate hearings. Meanwhile, author Graham Smith recently discovered another letter Sen. Byrd wrote after he quit the KKK, this time attacking desegregation of the armed forces.

The ex-Klansman vowed never to fight "with a Negro by my side. Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds."

If this ex-Klansman were a conservative Republican, he would never hear the end of his sordid past. "Ex-Klansman who opposed civil rights and black justices" would appear in every reference to Sen. Byrd. And even the "ex-" would be in doubt. Maxine Waters and Ralph Neas and Julianne Malveaux and Al Sharpton and all the other left-wing bloodhounds who sniff racism in every crevice of American life would be barking up a storm over Sen. Byrd's latest fulminations. Instead, the attack dogs are busy decrying latent racial bigotry where it doesn't exist, while the real thing roams wild and free in their own political backyard.

I said those exact words less than two hours ago!!!

...okay, I actually said, "He's the old type democrat which the Republican Party has become. Thje Democrat Party changed, not him."

Damn close enough!



Hell even Herbert Humphrey as liberal as he could be on social issues was strong on national defense. The Democratic Party was never the same after 1968.

Al Hunt is a foaming at the mouth fucking socialist!

Of course Zell Miller is a racist...he isn't a "real" [socialist] Democrat any more...ergo he MUST be a Nazi racist.

They are cracking up!

I wonder if he reported that income to the I.R.S.?
If not maybe he should go to prison for tax evasion.

True.

Other Dems with a racist past: Byrd (KKK employee and recruiter), Hollings (KKK member) and even Jimmy Carter, who courted the segregationist vote when he ran for governor of Georgia.
