Why Is Mitt Romney Recycling a KKK Slogan In His Campaign Speeches?

News

People who apparently actually read transcripts of Mitt Romney's as-brittle-as-they-are-vacuous stump speeches noticed that he has been promising lately to "keep America American," which is a creepy enough little nonsense phrase on its own presumably meant to ingratiate good ol' boy Mittens with the feverish crowd of wingnut olds whose general political philosophy rests on the willful insistence that enough twangy repetitions of the word "MURIKA" will convince the Good Witch (Jesus) to magically transport them back home to a nice movie version of pre-civil rights Kansas. But because he is Mitt Romney and he isn't quite creative enough to come up with these sorts of pandering slogans on his own, he seems to have "borrowed" it from some old KKK campaigns.


From Booman Tribune:

Here's the title of a pamphlet published in 1920 by the United Klans of America, as found in the catalog of Yale's Beinecke Library:

Why you should become a klansman : of interest to white, protestant, native born Americans who want to keep America American.

...

And on the eve of World War II, a group called the American Coalition, using the slogan "Keep America American," pressured the U.S. government not to admit Jewish refugees.

AMERICABlog also notes that Mittens has been using the phrase in campaign ads.

We would "hope" that Mitt Romney used this terrible phrase by mistake, but last we heard "hope" died somewhere in the course of 2009, so... probably not. [Booman Tribune/ AMERICABlog]

Last week, Nicole Arteaga of Peoria, Arizona received the devastating news from her doctor that her baby's development had stopped and that pregnancy would end in a miscarriage. Given the option of either a D&C or prescription medication, she chose to go with the prescription. Then, like all normal people do when they get a prescription, she went to a pharmacy to have it filled.

Unfortunately for her, Brian Hrenuic -- the pharmacist at the Walgreens she went to -- refused to give her that prescription, because he opposed it on "moral grounds."

When the Trump administration starting taking migrant children at the border like it was a lending library, there were concerns they'd be used as leverage against their parents. This probably was because people close to Donald Trump kept saying out loud that the intent was to use them as leverage.

Trump has since heroically stopped (somewhat) doing the cruel thing he was doing. He's now moved on to an entirely new cruel thing. The former "Apprentice" host wants to add some reality TV game show spice to the immigration dilemma: Parents caught crossing the border illegally can either remain detained with their kids in a sweltering tent city or give up custody of the child, to be cared for by a hopefully nice person and maybe someday seen again. We call it "Sophist's Choice."
