Newsflash for Madcow Jr. Not all democrats were segregationists but ALL segregationists were DEMOCRATS, to the man. More Republicans voted for the civil rights act than Democrats proving once again that the Deceptocrats like to find a parade and then get in front of it. They’ll do anything for votes, anything for power.
Actually, It was pretty even mix between the parties who voted for the Civil Rights act. While it is true that most Southern Democrats were voted against it, Democrats from other regions mostly voted in favor. The trend od the Democratic Party being pro-segregationist began to change when FDR became a supporter of civil rights and integration. From there, the ideological identities of the parties began to slowly shift, culminating in the formerly progressive Republican Party becoming more conservative with the massive influx of white Southerners, who felt alienated by their former party. Let's not forget, after all, that it was a Democratic president that actually signed the law into effect. History is a bit more complex and nuanced than you lead on.
As to your point that "all segregationists were democrats": that is patently false. Against, the mid 20th century was a time of ideological shift between the major political parties. as such, at that time both parties has segregationists among their ranks. Strom Thurmond, as I mentioned elsewhere on this thread, left the Democratic Party and ran against Truman as a third-party segregationist. After losing that venture, he settled into the Republican Party, segregationist views and all.

And what about you, David Poofter? Have you ever had a real job? Have you run a business or employed people? Or are you just a life long political turd?

Settlers killed natives, natives killed settlers, natives killed natives and settlers killed settlers. Am I missing anybody?
Every holiday we have to listen to some sanctimonious turd from atop a soap box remind us that we’re not a perfect nation. So tell me Melissa, where are these perfect nations, where the hell is Utopia? Perhaps its in the land of melissa’s ancestors. Oh wait, aren’t they killing each other there at a frightening pace in the here and now? I love these people who like to look at history to find only what fits their narrative.
My ancestors were Celts, the Romans took our land, murdered our women and children and enslaved us. I want reparations, I want my forty acres and a mule. Actually all I really want is to enjoy Thanksgiving and I don’t need any lectures from the likes of Melissa Nobody.

This guy has a good point.The problem is that the government uses tax money to hire more useless workers to vote for their own higher and higher salaries and benefits until there’s not only nothing left to “invest” they have to borrow to keep the scheme going.

While I admire this guy’s creativity, imagination and hard work, he shows his socialist mentality with his disparaging comments about builders, materials providers and profits. As a builder in a maritime climate similar to Wales I can tell you for certain that that structure is a mold factory. I hope he notices before those little cherubs become ill, mold can be deadly. Something we profit making box builders take into consideration even when building for sociailsts.
What could you do with a hammer, saw, a small plot and most importantly NO MONEY.
Show me what you would do Mr. Contractor.

India suffered because Gandhi implemented his own form of socialism which included NO international trade. He was followed by Nehru who was also a socialist. Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore soared, India, Cuba, Soviet Union sunk. These brain dead zombies are dangerous, get ready to fight my fellow Patriots.

The only thing I can say about these people is that turds of feather float together. And that includes Penn, Chomsky and the rest.

This is nothing, the last three speakers of the house here in Mass. are convicted felons and the moonbats around here remain self righteously ignorant.

The only thing that could be worse than this book is Cornel West’s breath. Doesn’t Princeton have a dental plan? Ugh!
