    article 1 section 8 clause 4..., 2005-03-11 11:56:13 | Main | madlibs..., 2005-03-11 22:53:39

    June 12, 1956:

    Mr. ROBESON: To whom am I talking?

    THE CHAIRMAN: You are speaking to the Chairman of this Committee.

    Mr. ROBESON: Mr. Walter?

    THE CHAIRMAN: Yes.

    Mr. ROBESON: The Pennsylvania Walter?

    THE CHAIRMAN: That is right.

    Mr. ROBESON: Representative of the steelworkers?

    THE CHAIRMAN: That is right.

    Mr. ROBESON: Of the coal-mining workers and not United States Steel, by any chance? A great patriot.

    THE CHAIRMAN: That is right.

    Mr. ROBESON: You are the author of all of the bills that are going to keep all kinds of decent people out of the country.

    THE CHAIRMAN: No, only your kind.

    Mr. ROBESON: Colored people like myself, from the West Indies and all kinds. And just the Teutonic Anglo-Saxon stock that you would let come in.

    THE CHAIRMAN: We are trying to make it easier to get rid of your kind, too.

    Gosh, whatever happened to civility in public discourse?
