Reagan: Fighter For Freedom Of All Whites

Posted by clubsodaandsalt on June 10, 2004

I really hope this Reagan lovefest ends soon. I realize that conservatives have built this fantasy world in which he stood for freedom for all, but anyone who actually looks into his policies in Central America, or his support for the apartheid regime in South Africa will notice that this is nonsense.

Let’s look at a wonderful quote of his from 1966 on the Fair Housing Act:

“If an individual wants to discriminate against Negroes or others in selling or renting his house, it is his right to do so.”*

He also opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Reagan did a lot to help the people of Eastern Europe become free, no doubt about that. Too bad he didn’t seem to have the same concern for citizens of his own country.

* – Just so you don’t waste your breath, comments from libertarians on the fabricated “right to discriminate” will not be entertained with responses. Thank you.
