He was a lying racist toady under Reagan, and he clearly hopes to be a lying racist toady under Trump. His Goebbels-esque rhetoric is stunningly immoral.

Jeff Dorchen, bless his heart, watched CNN last week and saw the unfolding spectacle of white-power brown-noser Jeffrey Lord somehow turning reason and history around on itself to blame targets of racism for racism itself, victims of lynching (journalistic and actual) for their own lynchings, while letting everyone in power off the hook for their own actions. Good lord.

Here is the clip of Jones and Lord on CNN if you feel like you can stomach it.
