Reagan: The Lost Years reagan-storm-warning-the-kiss-of-a-klansman.jpg

The Alabama Anniston Star editorial page looks at the Krugman/Brooks/Crespino/others not mentioned back and forth on Reagan and racism, and comes down with the dog whistling camp.

“Imagine the good a leader like Reagan could have done with his powerful skills of persuasion if he had spoken out forcefully against racism. Given that he chose another course, we’ll never know.”

Anniston knows racism. The town was the site of a hot 1961 encounter between Freedom Riders and the Klan. anniston-bus-in-flames.jpg
