I know John Hawkins is really stupid, but he isn't stupid enough to believe that the titles of the parties today have anything to do with their historical origins. No matter what the party at the time, the racial injustices on this list were propagated by southern, racist, states rights segregationists. This was the origin of today's Republican base, geographically and ideologically. Republicans overwhelmingly carry the former Confederacy for a reason.

"Republicans overwhelmingly carry the former Confederacy for a reason."

Correct. Because the former Confederacy isn't over run with Communist idiots.

South Side- While you recite the propaganda well, it doesn't hold up. Democrats fought against civil rights in my lifetime. The dems found it perfectly acceptable that their senior senator as recently as 2010 was a KKK guy that continued to be an outspoken bigot until he passed away. He served since 59 and died as the senior dem senator in 2010. In 64 he filibustered for over 14 hours against the civil rights act, part of a 57 working day dem filibuster to prevent passage. http://www.senate.gov/artandhistory/history/minute/Civil_Rights_Filibuster_Ended.htm

So when exactly did this seismic 180 degree swap in party civil rights views occur? Was it since 64? Since 2010?

Both parties were divided on the issue of civil rights, but it was for the most part liberals and moderates, and non-southerners, in both parties who advanced the issue of civil rights.

This is demonrat propaganda. From Lincoln to Reagan the Republican party has stood firmly for human rights. Actually for natural rights. The first of those, which 0 wants to take away, is selfdefense. IE the right to bear arms. Long before we had need to throw off tyrants we had need to defend our lives from lawless men.

And I bet you believe in the mythical "Southern Strategy" too right?
Just so you know, those 'progressive lies have been debunked in their entirety. The democrats thought they could pull one over after ONE racist senator switched sides & the southern dixiecrats died off. That's why FDR said "I'll have those n*ggers voting democratic the next 200 years!" Looks like he was able to stick scores of people on the new democrat plantation (aka inner cities). Progressive fairytales & enslavement. Some things never change.

It was Lyndon B.Johnson that said, "I'll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years", Right after signing civil rights act?

L.B.J's "racism" explains why he tired to block desegregation just 5 years prior to this, when he was a senator.

Because there were multiple witnesses to LBJ saying that Steve.

"Brilliant!"

Only to a mindless idiot like you.

For example, one will virtually never hear that the Palmer Raids, Prohibition, or American eugenics were thoroughly progressive phenomena. These are sins America itself must atone for. Meanwhile, real or alleged “conservative” misdeeds — say McCarthyism — are always the exclusive fault of conservatives and a sign of the policies they would repeat if given power. The only culpable mistake that liberals make is failing to fight “hard enough” for their principles. Liberals are never responsible for historic misdeeds because they feel no compulsion to defend the inherent goodness of America. Conservatives, meanwhile, not only take the blame for...
