Haley Barbour made factual statements during an interview with the Weekly Standard’s Andrew Ferguson. after doing so, the liberal media and their negro friends began a campaign against Gov. Barbour. Her is the statement that was made to the weekly standard in regards to segregation in his home town:
“I just don’t remember it as being that bad,” Barbour had told Ferguson, noting that his hometown, Yazoo City, Miss., wasn’t at the flash point of racial tensions at the time.” Then he really pissed them off by crediting the Citizens Council for the smooth transition during that time.
I’ve only read one article that had something good to say and they pointed out that after researching the archives his statement was true. Ain’t it a fine country when people are offended by the truth.
I wonder if this would have even made the news if he acredited the black panthers, Acorn, or the NAACP any of which have more convictions for wrong doing that the KKK and the Citizens council combined.
