300 reasons I would vote for used gym socks if it would keep John McCain out of office

Reason #61

Filed under: Anti-Semitic,Racist — 300reasons @ 3:36 am

Think Progress gives us this blast from the past: McCain voted against divestment from South Africa to bring down apartheid six times (if you’ve studied your history you know that divestment was a major contributing factor in the eventual downfall of apartheid).

So let’s see… McCain voted against sanctions for apartheid. He voted against a Martin Luther King holiday and called the Confederate Flag a “symbol of heritage.” He once said, “I hated the gooks. I’ll hate them as long as I live.” And during his 2000 campaign, one of McCain’s close advisers was Richard Quinn—an ardent supporter of David Duke, a guy who called Nelson Mandela “a terrorist,” and the editor-in-chief of the Magazine Southern Partisan, a magazine that published such gems as an article apologizing for the KKK and rants vilifying Jews, Puerto Ricans, Italians and Eastern Europeans.

But that’s all in the past! McCain has learned his lesson. He’s not racist anymore, nothing to see here… Except, oh yeah: McCain paid Richard Quinn 180,000 dollars to advise on his 2008 campaign.

I guess he hasn’t changed much after all.
