The Southern Strategy Is Real

The Southern Strategy is real and I have the proof – a PDF of a May 17, 1970 NY Times article where they interviewed Kevin Phillips, the man who created the Southern Strategy for Richard Nixon.


Kevin Phillips, the man who created the Southern Strategy

Here are some sample transcribed quotes from the article.

Kevin Phillips said, “All the talk about Republicans making inroads into the Negro vote is persiflage. Even Jake the Snake [Senator Jacob Javits] only gets 20 percent. From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don’t need any more than that … but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That’s where the votes are. Without that prodding from the blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats.”

Another quote from the article and this quote is FROM 1970!!!

“He doesn’t dismiss liberal fears that there is a potential for fascism in the new conservative majority. ‘The popular conservative majority now taking shape, like past popular movements, is vulnerable to aberration. With its important component of military, apprehensive bourgeois, and law and order seeking individuals, there is a proclivity and over-reaction to the liberal engendered permissiveness and anarchy of the sixties. This is a danger the administration should watch carefully.'”

The above comment is acknowledgement that they (Nixon and Phillips) were deliberately choosing to appeal to fascist tendencies in order to win political battles in the US. The GOP became a party of WILLING fascism in the 1960s when Phillips created the Southern Strategy and Nixon accepted it as his tool to power.

Read the entire article. It’s shocking, especially in light of the current presidency and where the Southern Strategy has brought us after 50 years. These ideas and more were also expressed in his book, The Emerging Republican Majority, written in 1969.

However, by 2006, Phillips seems to have realized just how dark a turn the path he laid for the GOP had become. In American Theocracythe NY Times described his writings as:

“He identifies three broad and related trends — none of them new to the Bush years but all of them, he believes, exacerbated by this administration’s policies — that together threaten the future of the United States and the world. One is the role of oil in defining and, as Phillips sees it, distorting American foreign and domestic policy. The second is the ominous intrusion of radical Christianity into politics and government. And the third is the astonishing levels of debt — current and prospective — that both the government and the American people have been heedlessly accumulating. If there is a single, if implicit, theme running through the three linked essays that form this book, it is the failure of leaders to look beyond their own and the country’s immediate ambitions and desires so as to plan prudently for a darkening future.”

The Southern Strategy is real. The historical documents prove it. The man who created it now seems to recognize he created a monster. And the monster of the GOP, Donald Trump, is now destroying our nation while Republicans sit by unwilling to lift a single finger to stop him.



The Covington High School Racists

People keep trying to exonerate those Covington High School students based on a little additional footage. So, since people want to introduce even more footageI’ve compiled a small list of this school’s hateful behaviors over the last several years.

Here we have Covington High School basketball players making the “White Power” sign during a basketball game. Their coach did not stop them.



Here we have one of the Covington High School students who stripped off part of his clothing and who was mocking the Native American elder. He can also be seen off to the side in one of the videos I’ll link down below.



Here we have Covington High School students wearing blackface and taunting a black opposing player  during a basketball game and the staff member standing there did not stop them!!


Video related to the above basketball game. Students have claimed that wearing blackface was “just school spirit”. Was harassing a black basketball player while wearing blackface “just school spirit” too?

And here is an article about that video.  Old Video Surfaces Of Covington Catholic Students in Black Paint.

And another article: Kentucky students from the same Catholic high school as the teens who taunted a Native American man were allowed to don BLACKFACE at their sports events – and openly goaded African American players.

Here we have a Covington High School priest who was present there on the mall and who never intervened.



Here we have another Covington High School sports photo with players again making the “White Power” hand sign. These photos were allowed to stand on the Covington High School website for years without removal.



Next we have a video of the boys from Covington High School before Nick Sandman stepped in front of Nathan Phillips. This is a YouTube link. It shows those same boys harassing Nathan Phillips and mocking him.


And finally (for now, I may add more later), we have a video of those same boys, just minutes before harassing Nathan Phillips and they were harassing women passing by, screaming “MAGA” and “slut” at them.

Addendum: That harassment of young women seems to run through that high school. Here is a story about Former Covington Catholic basketball player Jake Walter charged with rape, sodomy. It turns out Jake Walter registered as juvenile sex offender before new rape accusation. Seems he may have been raping girls while playing for Covington too.

And here’s another rape lover, this one cracking rape jokes while at the mall right before harassing the Native American veteran!!  ‘It’s not rape if you enjoy it’: Disturbing new video shows ‘Covington student’ cracking rape joke at the Lincoln memorial as his friends laugh.

These boys were not innocent at all and they, as well as other students from that school, have engaged in racist behaviors for years while the school staff stood by and allowed this to go on.

Don’t tell me these boys are innocent and don’t try to defend their racism. The evidence is overwhelming that Covington High School has a serious problem in that school with both students and staff and that the staff has known about this for years.

The evidence is clear. Covington High School is a racist cess pool.
