Take that

Huey Long, the unapologetic and ridiculously powerful former governor of Louisiana, once said, “Quote me as saying that that Imperial bastard will never set foot in Louisiana, and that when I call him a son of a bitch I am not using profanity, but am referring to the circumstances of his birth,” in reaction to a threat by the head of the Ku Klux Klan in 1935 to come into the state and campaign against him (Long was the only southern governor who treated blacks as equals at the time).

I really enjoyed the quote and thought I’d share.
