Hey, Laura! If you think that was funny look at these hilarious pictures.

www.aaregistry.org

That's John Lewis on the right with his funny little rain coat and his cutesy hair cut and big ears.

www.camelcitydispatch.com

And hey! Look! There's Lewis again about to have his skull fractured by that big tough cop. Ha ha ha ha ha!!!

Gosh, that cop looks familiar, too. Maybe he got a job with UC Davis.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!1!

Maybe not. But all those big fat white cops all look alike to me.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha!!1!

Fark you Laura. John Lewis is decent man who helped non-violently (unlike the cops your side seems to use as soldiers) put bigots and assholes like you on the bottom rail. Enjoy the filth down there. Most of us have better things to do with our time than humiliate and tear down genuine heroes of humanity and decency.

The stupid sound effect is a distraction from the bigger problem with Ingraham's analysis; as the article points out, she argues that the liberals are trying "to co-opt the legacy of Martin Luther King into a liberal agenda," as if the civil rights movement was supported by conservatives in the 60s.


As TFA shows in the link in about the Socialists Who Made the March on Washington, it was organized by A. Philip Randolph, a former Communist and a member of the Socialist Party at the time, and Bayard Rustin, who was also a Socialist and a gay rights activist.  Martin Luther King, Jr. was constantly accused of being a Communist, because some of his advisors were former Communists (see Jesse Helms' testimony in the 80s when Congress was debating the King Holiday).


http://www.martinlutherking.org/articles.html


Communists were involved in the civil rights movement from the very beginning.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Communist_Party_USA_and_African_Am eri cans


It was an example of epic trolling on a global scale; the Soviets supported the civil rights movement because it highlighted a huge flaw in America's image as a beacon of freedom and democracy.  How could the United States claim to be the good guys when they were allowing segregation in the South?  Even Eisenhower worried about America's image on the global stage, and he intervened in Arkansas because he worried that "LittleRock would feed Soviet propaganda mills."


http://www.newrepublic.com/article/112365/why-republicans-are-party -wh ite-people


If the Southerners were smart, they would've seen that they were being baited; instead, they doubled down on segregation, arguing that integration would lead to a Communist takeover of America.  By digging their heals in on segregation, the South unwittingly proved the point the Soviets were trying to make.


The hardcore right-wingers that took over the Republican Party (Goldwater, Buckley, Helms, Richard Weaver, etc.) also bit hard on the hook and tried to make integration synonymous with Communist tyranny.


William Flax, "Only the Communists Stand to Gain From Current Racial Agitation!" The Citizen,

(July-August, 1963), 9.

Jesse Helms, "Nation Needs To Know Of Red Involvement In Race Agitation!" The Citizen, (July-

August, 1963), 15.

2, no. 11, (August, 1957), 1, 4.


http://ac-journal.org/journal/2008/Summer/5CitizensCouncil.pdf


Conservatives have two choices:  they can try to claim that they supported the civil rights movement in the past (and were thus in league with the Communists and Socialists who also supported it-and hey, isn't that what they've claimed about the Democrats for so many years?), or they can admit that they fought against it as part of their vigilance against Communism.

Booing an injured gay Iraq war veteran just happened a week ago (again):

Link

My statement of "not far off..." was being generous, I know.  I'm giving some little benefit of the doubt for those last remnants of the GOP that I know exist and wouldn't turn on a vet like that.  They're damn few at this point though, and they would never think to chasten their fellows for it.

By "support our troops" they mean "support pointless wars". They could honestly give one shiat about actual soldiers.

Depends on which specific ones we're talking about.  My uncle, who still registers Republican and votes straight-ticket?  He puts service over dogma.  He doesn't like that a person is gay, but he does not allow that to override his respect for the service (retired soldier himself).  He got angry at how Romney treated that gay vet on TV.  Granted, he agreed with Romney's stance, but was pissed off at the disrespect.

Painting with too-broad a brush does nothing to further your cause.  It's best to be specific, and then shame those who aren't among the venomous crowd into recognizing what their party *really* stands for, and offering suggestions on what they might do about it.


If he truly respected the gay vet, then he would not have agreed with Romney's stance...

Here's some more hilarious stuff for you, Laura. A list of martyrs of the civil rights movement as compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

http://www.splcenter.org/civil-rights-memorial/civil-rights-martyrs

Some of those people were killed while they were dancing (ha ha), some while they were visiting a sick loved one (boo hoo ha ha ha) , some while protesting (yuck yuck yuck), one was a French reporter who was shot before he could surrender (ha ha ha) to a crowd protesting James Meredith's admission to a school, and--get this, Laura--four of them were little black girls at a church who were blown to bits (buh ha ha ha ha ha ha).

/the one I feel sorry for is the one man white guy protest march by a postal carrier who was on his way to deliver a letter to the governor of Mississippi. William Lewis Moore had his own mental health issues but was a civil rights activist. He was murdered while marching by the side of the road, alone. No charges were ever filed in his murder even though the bullets were traced to a gun owned by Floyd Simpson, a guy he argued with earlier in the day he was killed.

Didn't Reagan joke about it himself while he was in the hospital recovering from surgery?

Regardless, Ingraham's a moron, who at the very least should be given some vacation time to remember a few things about context:
1. You're a conservative with a conservative show on a conservative network. You may have noticed sometime over the last...60 years or so that the conservative movement (and the GOP specifically) has a bit of a problem when it comes to race relations. Right or wrong, you can't ignore it.

2. John Lewis had his skull cracked by Southern cops during an actual march. Many of the people he worked with were actually shot and killed (and not because of "the hip-hop they all listen to"). Do some research, Laur - a quick visit to Wikipedia might have unearthed that fact, and you might have spared yourself the embarrassment of taking potshots at a civil rights icon (also a sitting Congressman, and you may recall that guns and Congresspeople have a bit of rough history recently).

Maybe use a clown horn, or the sound of a jackass braying, or a Rush Limbaugh poop-grunt next time, save everyone the headache.
