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.

That's because you're a better man than I. About time the bastard kicked. Should have happened fifty years ago.

It was nauseating after Reagan died, too. I hated that they tied the fall of Communism to RR. Or anything at all for that matter.
