"So let us be blunt: we must use the doctrine of religious liberty to gain independence for Christian schools until we train up a generation of people who know that there is no religious neutrality, no neutral law, no neutral education, and no neutral civil government. Then they will get busy in constructing a Bible-based social, political and religious order which finally denies the religious liberties of the enemies of God."

"I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good...Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a Biblical duty, we are called by God, to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism." Randall Terry, Founder of Operation Rescue

In the Tuesday, March 30, issue of the Congressional Record, [former Alabama Congressman William Dickinson] claims to have evidence that the Negroes and whites participating in the march to Montgomery engaged in sex orgies of the rawest sort, including burlesque shows advertised by handbills in advance. On one occasion, they were driven out of a Negro church because of their shocking behavior, according to the Congressman. ...The civil-rights movement, as Dr. King calls it, has had an uncommon number of moral degenerates leading the parade. ...

Jesse Helms on his TV program "Viewpoint" 4/1/65

Also thirty years ago this month...

[Jesse Helms on the FBI arrest of four Ku Klux Klansman for murdering a Detroit civil rights marcher in Alabama:] The larger question, and America may as well face it, is why and how did the rage of these men become so great as to prompt them to commit such an outrage. Let Lyndon Johnson and Hubert Humphrey and Martin Luther King, and all the rest probe their own consciences. Can it be honestly said that there was not deliberate provocation of violence in Alabama? What was the point of it all? Who engineered it? Who smiled at defiance of the law on one side, while complaining about it on the other?

Jesse Helms on his TV program "Viewpoint" 3/30/65

...So if we understand you Senator, it was society, not the killer Klansmen who were to blame for this, right?

People like me are what stands between us and Auschwitz. I see evil all around me every day. ... We are on the edge of losing this civilization. You get two more generations of what we had for the twenty years and we are in desperate trouble.

Newt Gingrich waxing on in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 1/17/94

[Then-governor and Presidential candidate Strom Thurmond speaking on proposed civil right legislation.] And how pleased the Communists would be to find the [Fair Employment Practices Commission] forced on this country. They know that Stalin used a bill almost exactly like the American version to lift himself to power in 1920. ... The [Fair Employment Practices Commission] Thurmond continued, "pretends" to give employment to Negroes. But, he added, it actually provides a slick method by which any Communist could get a job in any muntions plant he chooses.

LARRY KING: Would you run with a woman?
Sen. PHIL GRAMM: Sophia Loren is not a citizen.

Senator Gramm indicating his standards on women from Larry King Live, March 1, 1995

In 1983, [Pat Buchanan] condemned feminism, saying "Rail as they will against 'discrimination,' women are simply not endowed by nature with the same measure of single-minded ambition and the will to succeed in the fiercely competitive world of Western capitalism...The Momma Bird builds the nest."

The problem with AIDS is: you got it, you die. So why are we spending money on the issue?"

Montana Lt. Governor (and potential Senate candidate) Dennis Rehberg discussing his budget cutting strategy, Newsweek, 1/17/94

[AIDS] victims are not victims of society. America did not kill these people. Most of them, homosexuals, bisexuals, intravenous drug users, are victims of their own vices. They have killed themselves because they would not or could not control their suicidal appetites.

Pat Buchanan as quoted in Newsday, 3/15/92
