GOP Leads 1964 Civil Rights Act, 44 Years Ago This Month


Senate Republican Leader Everett Dickerson


Democrat Senator Robert Byrd

On this day (June 7), in 1964, Everett Dirksen (R-IL), the Republican Leader in the U.S. Senate, condemned the Democrats' 57-day filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act...

P.S. In the commentary section of the post "The Democrats," the troll here hysterically projected:

SEVENTY FIVE Filibusters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Senator Strom Thurmond used to be a Democrat. He was a segregationist on the principle of State's Rights but switched to the GOP in that very year of 1964, when Dirksen was spearheading Civil Rights and the Democrats were "filibustering!!!!!!!!!" it.

In 2002, a retirement party was thrown for Thurmond (who became the longest-serving senator in history).

Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott praised his colleague and old friend and endorsed his policies in general.

That was interpreted to mean that Lott was endorsing his old segregationist positions (when he was Democrat), and the left went ballistic.

Lott stepped down from his leadership position in consequence.

Byrd, a former KKK who filbustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964, is still an entrenched party elder.

Too bad. In those days, the GOP did have some decent people in it.
That was the division point. Now, it's all pigs all the time.

Yes, that was a fine moment. By all means, keep this stuff up. We love these circular firing squads. If he'd renounced his racist ways, as Byrd did ages ago, he might still be showing off his hairdo in congress.

GOP: 'We were wrong' to play racial politics
By Richard Benedetto, USA TODAY
Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman apologized to one of the nation's largest black civil rights groups Thursday, saying Republicans had not done enough to court blacks in the past and had exploited racial strife to court white voters, particularly in the South.

"It's not healthy for the country for our political parties to be so racially polarized," said Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman.
By Morry Gash, AP

"Some Republicans gave up on winning the African-American vote, looking the other way or trying to benefit politically from racial polarization," Mehlman said at the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. "I am here today as the Republican chairman to tell you we were wrong."

Mehlman's apology to the NAACP at the group's convention in Milwaukee marked the first time a top Republican Party leader has denounced the so-called Southern Strategy employed by Richard Nixon and other Republicans to peel away white voters in what was then the heavily Democratic South. Beginning in the mid-1960s, Republicans encouraged disaffected Southern white voters to vote Republican by blaming pro-civil rights Democrats for racial unrest and other racial problems.


GOP admits it...

and then goes back to their same old ways.

Your reading comprehension abilities are abysmal, dolt.

Let me draw you a picture:

Mehlman "admits" he was "wrong" about:

1. Republicans giving up on winning the African-American vote

2. Looking the other way

3. Trying to benefit politically from racial polarization

Giving up and looking the other way is understandable.

Trying to benefit politically from racial polarization is politics, and is the only reason why the racist organization NAACP--and the Democratic Party-- exists.

"National Association for the Advancement of White People."

How does that sound?

Exactly.

btw, Mehlman's speech is just part of a healing process that's exposing all the lies the Left has been spoon-feeding AAs for decades, and bringing AAs back to where they belong: The Party of Lincoln.

Slowly but surely:

In the 2004 presidential election, President George W. Bush received 11% of the black vote, up 2% from the previous elections.

Fool.

Oh God.

THAT is funny.

Now the party that INVENTED the KKK now has to be arguing that the party that FREED THE SLAVES (i.e, the GOP, you illiterate morons) is now responsible for the KKK.

Read some history. Absorb what you can, because your whining does not take away from real historical fact.

The KKK was a tool of the democrats. It was. Pull out some history books and look at them. Robert Bird was a good democrat in fine standing, and he was a KKK member. Are so illiterate that you do not know how to read even basic history?

Nathan Bedford Forrest founded the KKK in the south. He was a good Democrat, ass. He loved this country more than even you do, I bet, and even now you do not know what party he was affiliated with.

I cannot agree with the KKK, as I am a Libertarian. I bet you do, good democrats, and just telling other people that you do not personally understand history at all is not going to be a good argument. Good God. Pull out a basic text on history before you display your profound ignorance of the history of this nation.

Better than that, pull your head out of your ass before you talk total nonsense.

Never mind any of that.

How can you not know that the KKK was the strong arm of the Democratic Party in the South and later the North? Do you not realize that the greatest resistance to the KKK has been from republicans in the south? Did you not understand this article that Republicus put out AT ALL?

FACT: "On this day (June 7), in 1964, Everett Dirksen (R-IL), the Republican Leader in the U.S. Senate, condemned the Democrats' 57-day filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act..."

What the hell silliness is an understanding of real history?

Are you ashamed of the history of the Democratic Party? They were the founding of the KKK. They were the Party that fought against freeing slaves. They were the party that enacted the Jim Crow Laws. What part of this do you not understand?

It is pretty basic if you can read and understand English. What I think is that you know nothing at all about history, and you do not care. You are a mouthpiece and an idiot. You cannot speak about history because you have no knowledge of it.

John,

You have had the most honest post at this point that I have ever read. You tolerated more than I ever would have, and you did so at a truly democratic and egalitarian effort.

You cannot help it if those that you asked could not stand up to the demands of simple society and polite necessity. That is not your fault.

I would go a bit further and posit that you sent beyond even the demands of civil discourse. Kudos to you for even trying to educate that swab of scum.

9:16 PM  
Blogger Phelonius said...

John,

Yes...perdition...sorry.

Jackson's travail's were bad, and he had an economic depression founded on many things. One of those things was the fact that the country had gone into debt and had not yet found a way to get out of it. One of his solutions is something that we no longer have the ability to do, and that is to sell "public lands." In our current economic crisis, I think the solution is easier than McCain wants to admit.

Drill for oil here, in this country, do it now, and look for alternative fuels in the meantime.

Poll: SHALL WE REVISE THE SUPREME COURT LIFETIME APPIONTMENT?
I have an idea, which will return Sanctity to the Supreme Court (SC) through a Constitutional amendment. As it now stands changes in government administration leaves the appointments on the SC to blind luck of the draw-a shoot of the dice, whomever happens to be in Office when justices die or need to retire. Therefore, I suggest a tenure system of 9 years which staggers the nomination to the court so that all members are staggered on a different time table/schedule for appointment, initially for 3 years, with a renewable tenure at the discretion of the president who nominated a justice, for 3 more years, with a second renewal possible for 3 years.

It's not a dyslexic hiccup, silly. Because of the widespread inversion of the letters of the, many posters and some bloggers simply do not bother to correct it. Some even use teh deliberately, just as some do not bother to capitalize the personal pronoun I. For someone who has to delete his own comments for grammatical and spelling errors and who also makes numerous mistakes to accuse the poster of dyslexia is really a sign of desperation and (or adn, as it is sometimes presented)shows that he has no refutation ot the arguments presented.
