Apologizing for slavery is only ok when George Allen does it
Can Republicans not remember 2005?
George Allen sponsored an anti-lynching bill in 2005. Here is the list of the members of Congress who signed the bill. John McCain apologized for NOT signing an anti-lynching bill right away (he later signed on to the bill out of fear of being labeled a racist). No one bitched then, did they? NO. In fact, I distinctly remember MANY people screaming that George Allen couldn't POSSIBLY be a racist because of the said bill and his promise to apologize for slavery.
During the past two years, as Allen has flirted with the idea of running for president in 2008, he has introduced symbolic anti-lynching legislation in the Senate and promised to lead the charge for an official apology for slavery.So, wait; was apologizing for slavery only ok when George Allen was going to do it? Or is the fact that as always, the Republicans weren't paying attention to governing bc the Republicans were in charge and they were just happy for that as opposed to caring about the outcome?
I'm guessing the latter.
I ask again; is apologizing for slavery only ok when George Allen is going to do it? I'm just checking.
