Not bad.

With respect to Senator Robert Byrd, you left out the part where, in 1952, he announced he had stopped being a member of the Klan.

You also left out the part where he spent his entire national political career apologizing for being a racist when he was young.

Jesse Helms was a noted segregationist. He started his political career as a Democrat, but switched to the Republican party for his 1972 Senate campaign. Why'd he switch, if Democrats were such racists?

Strom Thurmond, also a noted segregationist, started his political career as a Democrat. He switched to the Republican party in 1964, as a direct response to the passage of the Civil Rights Act. Why'd he switch, if Democrats were such racists?

Why did the Republicans welcome either of those two above, if they were so staunchly in favor of the Civil Rights Act?

One last question - If the Civil Rights Act was up for a vote right now, would Republicans be supporting it?

Yeah, maybe you should try reading about the Young Turks; AKA 'When the Democrats and Republicans switched policies on Civil Rights'. All those Southern Democrats that resisted Civil Rights back in '64 suddenly switched to Republicans after the Democratic Party added Civil Rights support to their platform after '64. And all the old school Progressive Republicans got kicked out of the GOP and switched affiliations to the Democrats.

Another error:

You left out the part about it being supported by more Democrats than Republicans.

And one of the Republicans who voted against it was the GOP nominee for president in '64, and yet there were quite a few embarrassed Republicans who admitted that Goldwater was appealing to racists.

You should read some of the things written by black Republicans who bailed on the party when Goldwater was nominated. Jackie Robinson, for example, compared attending  the '64 GOP convention to feeling like a Jew in Nazi Germany.

/That was the REAL Blexit.

SirDigbyChickenCaesar: Truck Fump: SirDigbyChickenCaesar: someone doesn't know the history of who Maury was

Exactly. I'm sad to hear the rest of his story. He's a towering figure in oceanorgraphic exploration and it's unfortunate that he felt the Confederacy was something he'd rather work on.  I never knew about the second part of his life.

he didn't love the confederacy, he loved Virginia.  It was different back then, it was a true federal republic.  People were loyal to their state not the nation.


Not all of them.

Many southern soldiers remained loyal when their states seceded; 40 percent of Virginian officers in the United States military, for example, stayed with the Union.[8] During the war, many Southern Unionists went North and joined the Union armies. Others joined when Union armies entered their hometowns in Tennessee, Virginia, Arkansas, Louisiana and elsewhere. Over 100,000 Southern Unionists served in the Union Army during the Civil War, and every Southern state except South Carolina raised at least a battalion.

1964 Civil Rights Act opposed by more Democrats than Republicans, signed by Democrat President Johnson who called it the "N Act."

The facts are just not on your side.  One party was founded on abolition of slavery and the other has a long and brutal hit list of racial problems.

And Dump used to be a Democrat.  People change.  get over it

Dead people don't change. So, yeah, those dead people are marred by their choices. Let it go. Bury them the idolization of them.


RandolphCarter: With respect to Senator Robert Byrd, you left out the part where, in 1952, he announced he had stopped being a member of the Klan.

You also left out the part where he spent his entire national political career apologizing for being a racist when he was young.


I had no idea 2010 came before 1952. Stop leaving out the bits inconvenient for your lame attempts. Its f*cking obvious.

Erik_Emune: phalamir: b2theory: Makes sense. There aren't statues for the Nazi leadership in Germany

More accurately, there aren't statues of Nazi leaders in England.

We wouldn't put a memorial for allied airmen in Hamburg, even. And those guys were bona fide heroes, it's just that it's NOT BLOODY DONE.


Terror bombing cities at night doesn't make you a hero. It makes you a war criminal.

The Americans bombed during the day, so they at least could aim at legitimate targets.

RandolphCarter: One last question - If the Civil Rights Act was up for a vote right now, would Republicans be supporting it?


ROFLMAO
They wouldn't support the ERA and half of them are ladies.

Darth_Lukecash: We done warn you "South will rise again" types.

We were hoping you'd work it out of your redneck little heads.

We gave 150+ years to "get over it"

You done didn't do your homework, so we take your action figures away.
