Too self-evident to say

“You know, one side of me was always angry that you were trying to force me to say what was too obvious to need saying.   Maybe there was a point to your demand.  It changes the conversation to say that the only reason to oppose an anti-lynching law is because you want the right to keep lynching people.”

“Mah constituents will not be bound by a federal anti-lynching law, suh, nor will ah betray them by voting for one!”  

“But everyone should have openly and repeatedly said what those people were demanding  — the right to murder and terrorize.”
