    Nice revisionist history though.
    I know what you have been taught no doubt from progressive profs. that are ashamed of the sorted past of liberal democrats in our society, but it would serve you to be honest about liberal racism.

    During the early part of the 20th century, the Presidents and the Congress worked together to decrease the number of federal appointments to blacks and to ensure that federal officials in the south were sympathetic to the cause of white supremacy. During the early years of the Wilson administration (1913-1917), the Democratic Representatives submitted more racist legislation than had been introduced to any previous Congress. Disfranchised and demoralized, few blacks voted during these years, leading to an even greater indifference of both parties to the black vote. The Republicans did not need black votes to control Congress, and Democrats did not care about a black constituency.

    When legislation was introduced to protect blacks, Democrats convinced Republicans to join them in their disregard for civil rights and suffrage for blacks.

    yes, Southern racist Democrats, aka Dixiecrats...who refused to allow blacks join them and bolted to the Republican Party after the Voting Rights and Civil Rights Acts,

    and the GOP welcomed them with open arms. This was known as the Southern Strategy...and it lost the South for the Democrats for a generation....or 4.

    but it was worth it...if that's what was needed to get rid of all those racists.

    I think it's good that these kind of museums exist. If any of you guys are ever in DC, I highly recommend going through the Holocaust Museum. Like this museum, it's not exactly "fun," but it's something that is definitely worth seeing in order to understand the darkest acts of humanity.

    I can't imagine when I would ever go to Big Rapids, Michigan...but if I did I would definitely visit their new museum.

    I can't. This is important.

    Do facts not matter to you? Just because it says democrats doesn't mean they are liberal.

    crazy huh, that 60 years ago the biggest racists were Democrats.

    if Lincoln were alive today, he surely would have been a Liberal-Progressive Democrat.

    Southern democrats, and southern republicans as well, though a southern republican is like a gay republican today People in the south hated the party of Lincoln, and that is why the democrats ruled the south, even though it is a very conservative place. Only until the past 10-15 years have the republicans taken over, hell Georgia didn't have a republican governor for a 100 plus years until 2000.

    So while yes they had a D in front of their name they were hardly liberal, and southern democrats were as different from northern democrats as republicans and democrats are different today.

    It's a pretty good bet... the conservative Democrat is akin to seeing a Vancouver Island Marmot; you hear about them in books but no one ever sees one.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
