I will pay for the following article Fallacies and Demagoguery in George Wallace 1963 Inaugural Address. The work is to be 5 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Wallace, who was the governor of Alabama, had shown his opposition towards issues of integration. It is reported that two African -American students had attempted to have an entry in the University of Alabama but were frustrated by Wallace. However, the president helped the students get admission in the school. hence, Wallace used his platform to maintain his position, revealing clearly that he was against racial segregation. In order to comprehend his speech, we need to get a better picture of his background. Wallace received his degree of law from the same university in the year 1942 and later went to the United States Air Force. After that he was married, became an attorney general, then a judge before running for governorship, hoping that his firm belief in racial segregation would help him to win. Later on, he gave up on his stance against the black people and he was elected for the fourth time as the governor, where he got black support. His speech persuaded the public to keep him in the office and it is undoubtedly that he used fallacies and demagoguery to trick his audience into supporting what he believed in (Webb and Armbrester 266-267)
It is easy to spot some of the fallacies that have undermined Wallace’s arguments in his inaugural address. He misleads the audience when he calls the government ‘communists’ and believing that they are just like ‘Nazi Germany’ (Wallace 4). He emphasizes that the American government is a major bully and the only victims .are the Southerners. However, considering that he was also in power, it was rather a cowardly act and an ill fetched tactic to point fingers at others and assume that he was the only one who was doing the right thing. He criticizes the federal troops, declaring that, “instead the South was set upon by vulturous carpetbagger and federal troops. all loyal southerners were denied the right to vote at the point of a bayonet” (Wallace 6). .In this case, he is recounting the civil war and making the audience believe that the troops do not in any way respect loyalty and the only reason they went into battle was to deny the Americans the right to vote. .
