The Criminal Legacy of Richard M. Nixon

This lowly criminal asshole and Grade A Creep has always been near the very top of my all time "Worst Persons in the History of the World" list where he posthumously remains to this day. To think that this truly pathological racist, sexist, antisemitic, homophobic, and imperialist liar, thief, and mass murderer was actually elected President of this country not once, but TWICE (!) before he was finally forced to "resign" after being confronted with certain impeachment speaks volumes about what's really fundamentally wrong with this country and why it and vicious cretins like "Tricky Dick" (or NOXON--short for 'noxious'-- as Ishmael Reed and so many others used to call him) continue to run us all into the ground with their madness. The foul, destructive legacy that this maniac has bequeathed--represented by such insidiously disgusting and reactionary human and political vermin as Ronald Reagan, Karl Rove, Oliver North, William Bennett, D'nesh D'Souza, Phil Gramm, Trent Lott, Lee Atwater, Newt Gingrich, Abby and Richard Thernstrom, Dick and Lynne Cheney, Charles Murray, Robert Bork, Edwin Meese, Donald Rumsfeld, Sarah Palin, Clarence Thomas, Condoleeza Rice, Thomas Sowell, Debra Dickerson, Ward Connerly, Shelby Steele, John McWhorter, George Bush One & Two, Rush Limbaugh, Bill Kristol, and a long list of others far too massive to acknowledge here--is precisely why Nixon and everything he embodied, represented, and advocated remains by far the greatest and most dangerous enemy to this nation.

Real Terrorism comes in many forms--both foreign and domestic. THIS IS ONE OF THEM...



New Nixon audio reveals former President's skewed view on abortion 

WASHINGTON - President Richard Nixon saw abortion as a useful option for ending mixed-race pregnancies, newly released tapes Tuesday show.

"There are times when abortions are necessary - I know that," Nixon told aide Charles Colson on Jan. 23, 1973.

"That's the thing about a black and a white," Nixon explained in the secretly-recorded conversation, or "a rape."

"Same kind of thing, you know what I mean. There are times," Nixon told his aide in a hideaway next door to the White House.

Nixon did not elaborate on whether he actually favored ending interracial pregnancies or was simply acknowledging the prevalent social stigma of that era about black and white couples.

The 37th President did not foretell in the 150 hours of recordings released by his library, however, that the 44th President might be just such a child born of a white mother and black father.

President Obama was 11 when Nixon was caught on tape.

Nixon discussed his abortion views while otherwise lamenting the Supreme Court's landmark Roe vs. Wade decision that day, which legalized abortion.

To Nixon's mind, underage girls might be encouraged to quit using birth control and "go get knocked up" because of the high court's ruling, he said.
