Could never have said it better myself.
It’s very fitting that the blog who posted this is called “this is common sense,” because it’s absolutely common sense that only someone who has been born and has the capacity to form opinions would have any stance whatsoever on any subject.
i’ve noticed that the person who said this [reagan] didn’t have a problem letting tens of thousands of men, women, children, and infants die during the AIDS epidemic without doing a thing about it - even laughing about it in public.
Ronald Regan opposed the Anti-Apartheid Act that was instrumental in ending Apartheid in South Africa. Before it passed, he went on TV calling it ”immoral” and “utterly repugnant.” After it passed, Regan vetoed it. The Republican-controlled congress had a less racist sense of morality. They got a two-thirds majority and overrode Regan’s veto.
The act, officially the “Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act,” enacted strict new measures against the racist government in South Africa. Specifics included a ban on bank loans and new investments in South Africa, a sharp reduction of imports, and preventing most South African officials from traveling to the United States. The law also made clear what it would take to end the tough sanctions. It called for a repeal of apartheid laws and the release of political prisoners like African National Congress (ANC) leader Nelson Mandela, who had spent the last 23 years in prison.
