Quotes of the Morning: Whip It. Whip It Good.

“Good news everyone! The Republican’s have chosen a new Minority Party Whip! (Like Miracle Whip, but a little whiter). They’ve chosen Trent Lott, a man who fell from favor a few years back due to his unfortunate comments at the birthday party of an old Dixiecrat.”

“I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years, either.”
-Trent Lott, December 5, 2002

“Still, this isn’t the first time that Trent found himself in a sticky position due to his apparent racist sympathies. He has been tied to the racist Council of Conservative Citizens (a southern ‘pride’ group) on several occasions.”

“[Lott] doesn’t consider himself a member. Nor does he have firsthand familiarity or knowledge of their views.”
- John Czwartacki, press secretary for Trent Lott, on reports of Lott’s connections to the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), 1998

“He spoke before the CCC three times in the 1990s, including once as a keynote speaker in 1992. He also wrote a column in the newsletter. His uncle was a local executive for the group, and his cousin was a member.”
-Skippy, December 19, 2002

“The people in this room stand for the right principles and the right philosophy. Let's take it in the right direction and our children will be the beneficiaries!"
-Trent Lott in his keynote speech before the CCC, 1992

"Each of the three major races plays a distinct role in history. . . . The whites were the creators of civilization, the yellows its sustainers and copyists, the blacks its destroyers.”
-CCC website, December, 1998

"Western civilization with all its might and glory would never have achieved its greatness without the directing hand of God and the creative genius of the white race. Any effort to destroy the race by a mixture of black blood is an effort to destroy Western civilization itself."
-Citizen’s Informer (the CCC Newsletter), Fall, 1994

"The presence [in Congress] of even one white person with our interests foremost in his mind is simply unacceptable to the issues-obsessed conservative race traitors. Texas Governor George Bush and his brother Jeb in Florida have manifested their self-hatred by embracing Hispanics ahead of whites. Somehow we must find a way to relieve whites of their self-hatred."
-“Open Letter to White People”, CCC Website, December 1998

"If we want to live, white Americans must begin today to lay the foundations of our future and our children's future.... Start today, fellow white Americans. Look at the faces around you: Find the faces like yours, and see them as your brothers and sisters. Find the fair-skinned babies and see them as your children."
-“A Call to White Americans”, CCC Website, December 1998

“Let’s all welcome Trent Lott to his new role. He has lots of experience in trying to bring losing groups back to their former prominence (though it hasn’t worked out so well for the Confederacy so far), and I am sure that he will have a lovely time seeing that the South.. um, I mean the Republicans, shall rise again.”
