    Dubious - it was caught on tape.

    A Swastika is a hieroglyphic used by the Egyptians, however many civilizations used the simple symbol.

    Hitler used it for its Egyptian origins tho...

    The audio is classified, and nothing more than a transcript has been released.

    I don't believed he used the word "nigger" tho - I think it was "Negro."

    Yes. So it has no relevance in the equation of defining what a person is.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

    The alleged quote in question (the one Lakeview cited) comes from a conversation on Air Force One between LBJ and two governors. It was cited in the 1996 book Inside the White House: The Hidden Lives of the Modern Presidents and the Secrets of the World's Most Powerful Institution and comes from a 1993 interview with with former Air Force One steward Robert M. MacMillan. There is no audio of that. There IS audio of LBJ using the n-word, but it's not that quote.

    Support for the 1964 CRA was divided on geographic lines, not party lines.

    Civil Rights Act of 1964 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The original House version:

    Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7–93%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0–100%)

    Northern Democrats: 145–9 (94–6%)
    Northern Republicans: 138–24 (85–15%)

    The Senate version:

    Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5–95%) (only Ralph Yarborough of Texas voted in favor)
    Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0–100%) (John Tower of Texas)
    Northern Democrats: 45–1 (98–2%) (only Robert Byrd of West Virginia voted against)
    Northern Republicans: 27–5 (84–16%)

    Northern Democrats and Republicans were overwhelmingly for it, Southern Democrats and Republicans were overly against it. There just weren't very many Southern Republicans, since the South kinda held a grudge over the Civil War.
    That is a **** load of nonsense - democrats only voted for it because it was manifested by a democrat...

    Just like today- democrats vote for the legislation they write and republicans vote for theirs, however that STILL doesn't change the fact that republicans tried to push through a similar bill 15-years earlier and were shot down by democrats.

    Besides, it goes way beyond that and into the realm of democrats controlling the south almost entirely.. Back in the day if you didn't vote democrat or even supported a republican or even republican ideas the local sheriff would make your life miserable - along with most of the community. There have been numerous cases of this documented - that's how democrats ruled the south, through violence and intimidation... Hell, there have been feature films made about this travesty and tyranny.

    Republicans had little to NO control over the south where "Jim Crow" laws were the rule of thumb...

    It's certainly a complicated matter that cannot be summed up into one paragraph or two but it is common knowledge Democrats owned the south.

    Hell, look at the civil rights movements in the south - do the dissenters look like republicans? - hell no they were democrats - and pissed off democrats to say the least.

    Ever hear of the Dixicrats?....

    No, it's not a ****load of nonsense. It's called facts. Those are the vote totals. They are irrefutable and incontrovertible fact.

    Yes, the south was a solid Democratic bloc for about 100 years after the Civil War. I'll give you three guesses as to why, and the first two don't count.

    It goes way back before 1993 and if you would really like to you can file FOIA transcripts if you're really interested.

    I'm not the one claiming there is audio of it. You are.
