Not Meaning to Be a Buzzkill or Anything...
But in the ongoing and nauseating beatification of the late Jesse Helms, let's not forget this racist, divisive and fear-mongering political ad, which basically said, "vote for me or NEEEEE-GROES will take your job!"
This, friends, is what Jesse Helms stood for: the politics of fear.
I won't rejoice in any man's death, but I won't stand by silently while he's made out to be a saint.
