      Beset by the leak of a top-secret history of the Vietnam War and rising unemployment statistics that were hurting his standing in the polls in summer of 1971, President Richard M. Nixon lashed out repeatedly at "the Jews" he saw at the root of his problems.

      "The Jews are all over the government," Nixon complained to his chief of staff, H.R. "Bob" Haldeman, in an Oval Office meeting recorded on one of a set of White House tapes released yesterday at the National Archives. Nixon said the Jews needed to be brought under control by putting someone "in charge who is not Jewish" in key agencies.

      When asked about appointees, Nixon tells presidential counselor Anne Armstrong there should be “No Jews. We are adamant when I say no Jews. … But Mexicans are important. Italians, Eastern Europeans. That sort of thing.”
      Richard Nixon was a racist anti semite piece of shit.  I can't believe you don't know.

        The Nixon Presidential Library has released the last set of Nixon tapes, and boy are they doozies. The former president is caught making anti-Semitic comments and stating that black people are incapable of running a country. On a phone call with Henry Kissinger, Nixon was concerned that the Jews would sabotage an upcoming U.S.-Soviet summit—and if they did, he said, “it’s gonna be the worst thing that happened to Jews in American history.” On another call, Nixon says he wants to fire his then-aide and lawyer, Leonard Garment, yelling “God damn his Jewish soul!” And in an Oval Office meeting, Nixon said that black people couldn’t run Jamaica. “Blacks can’t run it. Nowhere, and they won’t be able to for a hundred years, and maybe not for a thousand ... Do you know, maybe one black country that’s well run?” What sort of appointees would Nixon prefer, you ask? “No Jews. We are adamant when I say no Jews.” The tapes were recorded between April 9 and July 12, 1973.
        He didn't reserve his bigotry just towards the Jews.  Seems he was an all around, hateful piece of shit who thought black people were incapable of running a country.  It's too bad he didn't live long enough to see Obama do a better job than he did, just so the old racist fuck could choke on his own words.

        an anti-semite. The thread was confusing. Nixon, for sure. But I sincerely thought you were talking about Ben Stein and then I went looking, and well, there IS a case to be made that he might be, too.
