Remember John Fitzgerald Kennedy? He was the Senator from Massachusetts when he ran for President in 1960, took on Vice President Richard Nixon, and won. Check out this election advertisement from that campaign:
Did you get that appeal to Southern White Voters?
Yes, that’s a representation of a rebel flag made up of Kennedy buttons at the 53 seconds mark.
Kennedy needed Democrat states in the South to win what was one of the closest presidential contests in American history. He went on to win North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas – 49 percent of the vote and an electoral college majority.
Kennedy wasn’t the last Democrat to use such an appeal to Southern voters…
Take a look at that red MAGA-style cap. Hillary had them before Donald!
We wonder how long it will take the new Democratic Socialist wing of the Democrats to get around to purging all mention of these folks too? They will. At some point in the future they will consider it non-PC to mention any but them.
