  •  So, according to Pratt, (12+ / 0-)

    we should turn the clock back to the 1870's, when groups of southerners banded together and went on killing sprees against blacks to protest their loss of slavery and the Civil War. Back to the early days of the KKK. To times of fear and intimidation, when many, both black and white were terrified of their neighbors, friends, and even their own families.  

    I wonder if Pratt would change his mind if someone was shoving a .357 up his nose and threatening to kill him because they didn't like what he said in this interview....

      In October 1992, at Estes Park, Colorado, Pratt addressed a three-day meeting of neo-Nazis and Christian Identity adherents organized by Pete Peters in the wake of the Ruby Ridge incident. Pratt shared the stage with Richard Butler and Louis Beam . . .

      In the 1996 U.S. presidential election, Pratt served as a co-chairman of Pat Buchanan's campaign. In February 1996, the liberal Center for Public Integrity issued a report that claimed Pratt spoke at meetings organized by white supremacist and militia leaders. Pratt denied any tie to racism, calling the report a smear aimed at hurting Buchanan before the New Hampshire primary election. However, Pratt was forced to resign his position with the Buchanan campaign.

      liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject
