If only America had listened to Richard Nixon, the Republican Party wouldn't be in the trouble it's in. Because Barack Obama wouldn't have been born. He would have been aborted, because his mom was white and his dad was black.

According to newly released White House audiotapes, Richard Nixon summed up his view of abortion in 1973 thusly:

"There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white," he told an aide, before adding: "Or a rape."

Not that you needed any more evidence that the man was a miserable fucking monster.

He also blamed anti-Semitism on the Jews:

"What I really think is deep down in this country, there is a lot of anti-Semitism, and all this is going to do is stir it up," Nixon said. At another point he said, "It may be they have a death wish. You know that's been the problem with our Jewish friends for centuries."

Previous tapes have shown Nixon referring to "cheap kikes" in the White House.
