New Audio: Reagan Phones Nixon And Calls Africans 'Monkeys'

Just in case you thought racist Republicans in the Oval Office was something brand spanking new...

The Republican Party is racist.

Newly released audio via The Atlantic reveals that Ronald Reagan referred to African delegates to the United Nations as "monkeys" who are "still uncomfortable wearing shoes."

As I have written thousands of times in a thousand different ways since I began blogging 14 years ago, the Left has been right about the Right all along.

And the Beltway media will never forgive us for it.
