Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who once spoke out against President Donald Trump's racism, adopted an "if-you-can't-beat-'em-join-'em" philosophy on Monday, echoing the president's racist attacks against progressive Democratic congresswomen of color.

Three years ago, Graham also attacked then-candidate Trump for McCarthyism after Trump publicly questioned whether an Indiana-born federal judge was biased against him because he was "a Mexican." Graham at the time said Trump's comments were "un-American" and played "the race card."

"This is the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy," Graham told The New York Times.

"You know how you make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell," Graham said on CNN's "New Day" on Tuesday, picking up on the GOP front-runner's famous slogan, "make America great again."

"He's a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot," Graham told Alisyn Camerota. "He doesn't represent my party. He doesn't represents the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for. ... He's the ISIL man of the year."

"What Mr. Trump is doing -- and I don't think he has a clue about anything. He's just just trying to get his numbers up and get the biggest reaction he can," Graham said. "He is helping the enemy of this nation. He is empowering radical Islam. And if he knew anything about the world at all, you would know that most Muslims reject this ideology."

Ah, in the immortal words of Archie Bunker, "Those were the days."

I think I just realized that Nullifidian is really Lindsey Graham.

Sounds like JeffJ.

Interview with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
#40 Hatter,
That statement is incredibly....the GND is Communism. It's complete state control of everything. It's been tried numerous times over the past 100 years or so with devastating results.
Every time.

Wait, we can make racism go farther? Is there like a book about this or something I can read?

TPT strikes again.

Let's see if TPM digs up contrary dirt on each of the Demoractic Candidates next.

They must have pictures of Graham in bed with young men or something.

What else would make a person do a complete 180?

Like even some here from CA have done with their political views. Mental breakdown in that case, me thinks ... He could always move to Texas, but he won't. He'd rather blather and whine.

Graham didn't do a 180 so much as he simply stopped pretending he's not a racist authoritarian who likes sending people to camps.
The entire GOP is undergoing a similar facelift.
Even the "Never Trumpers" support the camps.

Just the kind of homophobic smear one would expect from Unitard.

Pedophilia is not the same thing as homosexuality, you pathetic pervert.

Ok I'm convinced Trump has a film of Graham and Foley dressed like girl scouts and peeing on each other.

You must have missed the "in bed with ...men" reference.

"young men"

Euphemism for underage.
See: Epstein's "young women" victims.

I don't know what they have on Graham but I am quite sure that whatever it is would destroy his career. His 180 degree changes indicate he is owned by Trump/Putin. John McCain would be ashamed of him him today.

That was when the Republican party pretended it wasn't racist, and politicians thought they would be punished by Republican voters at the polls if the didn't at least put on a front of condemning racism.

Then they discovered their base would not only not punish them for racist rhetoric, they would actually reward them. It is disgusting and depressing, but at least Trump has allowed Republicans to finally truly be themselves and stop pretending they aren't racist.

Calling everyone a racist, facist or nazi is also McCarthyism.

Excellent question. I wonder if they have manufactured evidence - digitally inserted and ready to propagate? Even if he isn't being "blackmailed", maybe he believes that he is? Then again, he is so vicious on Trumps behalf it's comedic. All Republicans seem to be clowns piling out of his car.
