The effort to dislodge Pelosi is starting to crumble, specifically because of increasing awareness that this is a right wing effort, and due in part to the fact that progressives like AOC have now endorsed her.

Mississippi newspaper: Hyde-Smith attended segregation academy (politico) It's not really where she went to school, actually - it's that when it was her daughter's turn, she sent her to a segregation school. FYI, a segregation school is not just a segregated school, it was one established to keep white kids from going to school with colored kids. What makes it a devastating revelation is that it is just consistent with her recent behavior.

It's Mississippi. These racist reports about her are considered a plus by her constituents.
She's running against a black man.

What yall think?
I say she's gonna win.

The only thing I haven't seen is a connection to George Wallace.
Quote:
He won 9,901,118 popular votes (out of a total of 73,199,998)—that is, 13.53% of votes cast nationally—carried five Southern states - Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi - won 45 electoral votes plus one vote from a faithless elector, and came fairly close to receiving enough votes to throw the election to the House of Representatives.
Although Hyde-Smith was too young to vote then, Wallace is still in the hearts of his nearly 10 million voters (who included her parents, apparently). There are clearly a lot of them still out there, apparently including Hyde-Smith. Cindy Hyde-Smith Is Pretty Much Who You Thought (TPM)

These were the blatant, in your face, I know I am a bigot, bigots.

What Mr Trump has done is emboldened and normalized bigotry for the other 25% of people who are bigots but don't wear a pointy headed white sheet.

Anecdotal but every Trump supporter I know is a bigot.

Cindy Hyde-Smith is a bigot whether she wants to admit it or not and for Trump supporters ... it is a plus.

I'm really not certain if there is anything the Republican Party stands for besides bigotry.

I believe there is evidence to support the notion there are two distinct factions of current Republicans.

One faction are the Trump supporters otherwise known as the base. Most are bigots. They comprise the majority of Republicans. These are the people most establishment Republicans deny exist. They should be renamed as Trumpites, Trumpians, or some other unappealing name.

Establishment Republicans are the other faction. Many have renounced their affiliation with the Republican Party. Political apostasy is not well received by Mr Trump.

A couple of years ago this forum asked the question of what would become of Republicans who did not pledge fealty to Mr Trump and what we see is many have become conservative Democrats or independents. It was my prediction these folks would have no place to go and expect to have some say in politics unless they became Democrats.

But why have the rest of them continued their allegiance to Mr Trump? Paper tiger comes to mind. Show some integrity!!!!

Well, that explains it. one faction made up of bigots, the other dedicated to power. If we made a Venn diagram, greed and corruption would be where they overlap.
