WITH DNC IN MIND, CITY BANS REMOVAL OF URINE, FECES. Seattle Councilman: Cleaning Poop Off Sidewalks Is Racist:

Seattle councilmember Larry Gossett isn’t a fan of one solution to power wash the feces from the sidewalks to tamp down on the smell. Power washing the sidewalks is too reminiscent of civil rights activists being hosed down, he said.

Now that’s hardcore: making his fellow Democrats who reside in Seattle suffer in the 21st century for the sins of their (Democrat) forefathers of the 1960s. Or as Glenn reminded his readers in 2014, “The Democrats were the party of Jim Crow. Bull Connor was a member of the Democratic National Committee. He set dogs and firehoses on civil rights protesters.”

(Classical allusion in headline.)
