"Could become?"

If he had made the statement ten years ago, I might have given it more weight.

But as things stand nowadays, his statement is about ten years too late. The GOP is mostly there already, with Pres Trump in the process of completing the transition.

Bill Weld is a grandstanding, cynical opportunist who left the GOP so he could get on the Libertarian ticket, then stabbed them in the back and told voters to vote for Rodham, and is now a Republican again to get some attention

"GOP Could Become ‘Party of Racism'"

The Democratic Party has cornered the market on racism, race baiting, and identity politics.

If you're not a victim, they can't use you as a cudgel or wedge. and that just doesn't benefit their agenda.

Explain this. Racism is a Democrat ploy? Which presidential nominee is the most racist in your view? Bernie Sanders because he marched with MLK?

10, 20 years late????
Hello, Nixon was elected because of the Southern Strategy as has every single successive Republican President been since. When Reagan kicked off his 1980 campaign from Philadelphia, MS, it told every racist in the country that he was on their side as has every single other Republican President. Welfare Cadillac, Willy Horton, "Would you be more or less likely to vote for John McCain ... if you knew he had fathered an illegitimate black child?", the Republicans have used race to divide our nation since 1968. Personally, I'm sick of it and I'm sick of Republicans, they could do the nation a favor by dissolving their evil party.

Yeah remember when the democrat party elected a guy who ran on racism race baiting and identity politics who told everyone they were a victim?

Difference between liars and deniers: Liars are lying but deniers can be telling the truth. The Democratic Party did bring Civil Rights to the forefront in the 1960's and the black voters remembered that. Lying Republicans call it "identity politics" as they pass 2 trillion dollar tax cuts for billionaires. It's not "identity," it's common sense. If you aren't rich, Republicans really aren't on your side. Pretend otherwise while they just added 3 trillion dollars to the debt so that the rich can pay lower percentages of income in taxes than do most working people.

Slick Willy Weld ought to run as a Democrat. He's tried out the other parties and they didn't like him. Or he could try the Green Party, but they probably wouldn't have such a weasel either.

But what he says about the GOP is true and everyone knows it. Including Nulli, though he is too cowardly to admit it.

Unfortunately, Trump's misogynistic RACIST outbursts are winning his supporters amongst those who hate their mothers. Your basic psychos who worship Trump, the savior of the unborn and were raised by LIARS and/or the INSANE. So be it. A distraction from White House TREASON and inability.

Many more are repulsed by the LYING tweets and utterences.

It's also the party that supports violence spread by various congressional "I hate American" members in addition to their political action wing... the Antifa Nazi's.

Who does the name calling? Who advocates for violence, who proudly say they hate America?

NOT the winners of the 2020 elections... that's for damn sure....

Punching Nazis is always self defense by definition. The very existence of nazis is an assault on the USA and every decent American.

So no I will never feel bad about seeing Nazis get punched

There I owned my position now its time for you to own your position as a NAZI sympathiser. You can't oppose ANTIFA unless you support the Fascists.
