Citáty Jesse Helms


„To rob the Negro of his reputation of thinking through a problem in his own fashion is about the same as trying to pretend that he doesn't have a natural instinct for rhythm and for singing and dancing.“

— Jesse Helms
(1956) on criticism that a fictional character in his newspaper column was offensive cited [ The New York Times] (2001)

„White women in Washington who have been raped and mugged on the streets in broad daylight have experienced the most revolting sort of violation of their civil rights. The hundreds of others who had their purses snatched last year by Negro hoodlums may understandably insist that their right to walk the street unmolested was violated.“

— Jesse Helms
(1963), as quoted in [ Whitewash: In his new autobiography, Jesse Helms sees himself as a humanitarian not a racist supporter of brutal right-wing regimes who turned obstructionism into a foreign policy by Barry Yeoman]


„[Voters] "sent me to Washington to vote no against excessive Federal spending, against forced busing of little schoolchildren, and to vote no against the forces who have driven God out of the classroom.“

— Jesse Helms
News & Observer, June 26, 1983 quoted in [ The New York Times] (1994)

„The Negro cannot count forever on the kind of restraint that’s thus far left him free to clog the streets, disrupt traffic, and interfere with other men’s rights.“

— Jesse Helms
WRAL-TV commentary, 1963 cited in [ Media Downplay Bigotry of Jesse Helms]
