Periodically, I would send him a newspaper clipping of Klansmen getting convicted of some horrible crime or repenting. I was hoping he might read the stories and a light would turn on and he would retell the events that led to the bombing. I even sent him Diane McWhorter's book.

When I see Donald Trump praising Klansmen and Nazis marching in the streets of America, and when I see children torn from the arms of their mothers, I am reminded of these words by Reverend Martin Niemoller. We cannot allow this president to pick us off one group at a time.

On this Memorial Day, we give thanks to the heroic men & women who bravely fought and gave their lives to protect the NYT’s right to call the military Klansmen.

In 2000, Doug Jones indicted 2 Klansmen who 37 years earlier bombed Birmingham church and killed 4 black girls in 2017, Donald Trump defended Roy Moore against allegation of child molestation 38 years earlier by saying it hadn’t come up before

We have a president who actively demonizes racial and religious minorities, who coddles Nazis and Klansmen, and who wields white supremacy as a political weapon.

After comments on #Charlottesville  , I'll be introducing Articles of #Impeachment  against #Trump . No good Nazis or Klansmen! #ImpeachTrump

One way to think about an election is: who are the literal Nazis and Klansmen supporting? Maybe I should look elsewhere.

What am I missing? Neo Nazis, alt right, Klansmen marching in Charlottesville with tiki torches and bats trying to incite fear, “some” are good ppl. Nfl players peacefully protesting are SOB’s, should be suspended or kicked out of league.
