AEI scholar Gerard Alexander:

Has an essay in the Washington Post where he argues that "conservatism does not equal racism". One talking point that he uncritically repeats is:
Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) recently argued that race did not play a central role in the partisan shift in the South, saying the transformation was led by a younger generation of Southerners in the post-segregation 1970s.
Yet, in the much-derided Alexander op-ed six months ago (also in the Post) on why liberals are so condescending, he wrote:
Race doubtless played a significant role in the shift of Deep South whites to the Republican Party during and after the 1960s.
AEI scholar, don't forget.


Like any other "scholar" at AEI, he's paid to mislead at the bidding of his corporate masters.

It's a well-upholstered slavery.

A well-upholstered slave whose job is to keep the other slaves in-line.

Cato is the libertarian think tank but AEI leans that way. Remember the differnce between a lbertarian and an anarchist --- the libertarian still wants cops to keep his slaves under control.

Tricky-Dick Nixon's Southern Strategy lives on!

Was Haley Barbour the model for the Pillsbury Dough-Boy?
