    Republicans have courted racists for years. Why are they cringing now?
    Leonard Pitts, Miami Herald

    . . . But without question, the most repugnant contribution to this new dawn of white supremacy comes from the Republican Party. It has called to these people, invited these people, for decades. It has done so overtly, with laws and statements demonizing LGBTQ people, Muslims, and immigrants. Republicans have also employed so-called "dog whistle" politics, coded words, policies and imagery that preserve deniability while speaking with implicit clarity to white racial and cultural fears. From the Willie Horton ad that helped George H.W. Bush become president to the suggestive white woman ad that helped sink a black candidate's Senate bid in Tennessee, from photo ID voter suppression to birther conspiracies, from Newt Gingrich condemning a "food stamp president" to Paul Ryan's complaining about "a tailspin of culture in our inner cities," the GOP has seldom missed a chance to lay out the welcome mat for white supremacists.
