    Is Congressman Al Green the Dumbest Man in Washington? In Texas? America?
    Thomas DiLorenzo

    Apparently so. Rep. Al Green (D-TX) announced today that the reason why Virginia Governor Ralph Northam was photographed in blackface in his 1984 medical school yearbook is Donald Trump’s “bigotry.” The governor is apparently clairvoyant enough to have known in 1984 that Donald Trump would be elected thirty-two years later, and so he must have thought he should board the bigotry train early.

    Reminds me of how some critics of my book, The Real Lincoln accused me of veiled “racism” by writing the book as a response to the election of Obama. The Real Lincoln was published in 2002; Obama was elected in 2008. I apparently share Governor Northam’s clairvoyance.

    I really hate to disagree with DiLo (especially if it makes me look like I'm defending an $#@! like Green), but according to the story Tom linked to in his post at LRC, Green is not saying that Northam wore blackface back in the '80s because of the bigotry that has supposedly been fostered by Trump and Trump's presidency today. Rather, Green is saying that Northam is refusing to resign today over what he did back then because he has been emboldened and enabled by the bigotry that has supposedly been fostered by Trump and Trump's presidency today. Now, that may be a dumb thing to say, but it doesn't involve any time-spanning clairvoyance - and it doesn't make Green any dumber than all the many other people in Washington (or in Texas, or in America) who are saying exactly the same (kind of) thing ...
