IMO, AC is a hardcore journalist and wants to be there to cover those stories firsthand.
I believe AC is generally an excellent journalist, and this is from someone who leans right. I could care less if he is gay. As a matter of fact I have more respect for him now then I did when he came out of the closet because he doesn't make a big deal out of his sexuality unlike Rosie, Rachel Maddow, Helen DeGeneres, Barney Frank etc.
I may not agree with AC all the time with his opinions but I certainly respect the guy - he definitely has journalistic integrity.
That's really not an argument about racism and certainly you don't believe that LBJ was the one who brought civil rights to America. Ad hom comments about me just don't work, btw, but there are more effective ways. Proving me wrong is always the best.. I'd much rather deal with the issues honestly so if you can make any accurate historical claims that would counter that video then let's discuss them.Southern Democrats started leaving the party in the 1960s because LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act into law. In the 1970 - 1980s the Neo Conservatives left the Democrat party because they thought Jimmy Carter was too weak on military expansion and defense. Why don't you try reading something besides right wing propaganda and revisionist history? That stuff will rot yer brain.
Thanks for the rather back handed compliment, though I don't believe I let you down. We just disagree.
Perhaps it's better to look at the actual ideologies of the parties in these times as well their history.
Can you see where 'Affirmative Action', for example, is a form of racism?
I saw the video and watched the clown interviewed. The dude asked to get punched by the old-timer that punched him.

Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
