    You're just living in denial.

    And when I get back from the store I will elaborate more.
    Really? Guy, you're from Chicago. How much time have you spent in the South? I grew up in the Mississippi Delta - my direct family is buried in the cemetery at the local Southern Baptist church (out in the sticks, mind you) all the way back to the 1870's...I've got VERY deep roots there. I KNOW the South. You apparently don't, since you're living under the assumption that the racist Democratic of the 1960's who vastly outnumbered the Republicans (which is why they called it the Democratic "Solid South") are suddenly vastly outnumbered by the "not racist" Republicans.

    FYI, a Pew poll in April of 2011 showed that 46% of Mississippi Republicans STILL thought that interracial marriage should be banned.

    And the thirteenth amendment - you know, the one where slavery was abolished - was not officially ratified by the (very, very Republican) Mississippi government until 2013. Yes, that's LAST YEAR.

    And if it's the Dems of the South that are SO racist against blacks...why is it that the blacks Down South vote 98% Democratic? Your claim would mean that they vote FOR racists.

    Solid references available upon request.

    Oh, and one more story. I've gone back home to the Delta many times since I left in 1981, because that's where my family lived - in Sunflower county which is 71% black. In the summer of 2012, when the presidential election was hot and heavy, I was talking to a black friend of mine named Eddie. I said, "Eddie, I'm driving around here, and I don't see any Obama stickers or signs anywhere. Why is that?" He looked back at me with sad, sad eyes and said, "Pete, you know why." And he was right - I did know why. The blacks of 71%-black Sunflower county did not dare post Obama signs on their cars or in their yards because if they did, they or their family members would soon lose their jobs. That's just the way it is.

    It's easy for those who do not live Down South to make all kinds of assumptions about the way it is...but you can't know unless you've lived there for many years. By your claims, I know that either you haven't spent many years there...or you're making up crap.

    Who said I was doing that? I am just trying to correct the mistaken notion that Fascist/Nazi = right-wing.

    If not, how is this germaine to the discussion of the ongoing revisionism which is spreading like kudzu in the American dialogue today?
    The OP is the one who is trying to tack the Nazi label onto any and everything opposed to Democrats on the misrepresented basis of what a couple of unstable individuals did at a pizzeria. What is really funny is how people were like "Tea Party flag!" as though the Gadsden flag did not have hundreds of years of history in the United States.

    Ten years in Mansfield TX and I will tell you flat out that even a WHITE GUY putting an Obama sticker on their car or a sign in front of their house equaled taking your life in your hands. One neighbor (an elementary school teacher) DID put an Obama sign in her yard.
    Her house got treated to a nice drive by. Cops counted 28 bullet holes in the garage door alone.
    She's lucky they didn't toss a Molotov through the living room window.

    Now imagine a BLACK man, it's just so ridiculously absurd that it should be funny, except these are people's lives we're talking about. So of course, it's NOT really funny.
    If I didn't respond to your diatribe, it's possible you may have
    engaged in revisionism or broad sweeping generalizations.
    I don't have time for either, and you're probably on my IGNORE list.

    No, I will NOT get over it.
    The facts on who voted for what were already posted.
    The voting records of WHICH Democrats voted AGAINST the Civil Rights Act of 1964 were also already posted.
    Southern Dems voted AGAINST, Northern, Eastern and Western Dems voted FOR.

    And the historical documentation on turning the Dixiecrat South RED is a fact.
    Each and every time you folks try pushing your garbage over here and calling it ours, I will push it right back.
    I'll do it every day for the next twenty years if I have to.

    We ADMIT the mistakes of the old Democratic Party, but we also point to the turning point in history where the tide changed.
    That's not lying or revisionism, that's telling the truth.

    So get mad, get pissed off, scream if you want.
    It's not going to stop me or even slow me down, if anything it's going to make me more inspired and it's going to get the thread more views.

    I think you miss the entire point.

    You do realize the republicans tried numerous times to pass a CRA and democrats denied them every time.

    Don't sit here an pretend the democrats invented the CRA when they didn't.

    Republicans tried numerous times to abolish "Jim Crow laws" yet when people say "Jim Crow" the uninformed think "Republican" - when in reality it was the complete opposite.

    I have absolutely no idea how democrats get a free pass for being the biggest bigots and murderers in US history - or even worse - how they managed to blame it all on republicans.

    The turning point came when democrats figured out using blacks for votes instead of lynching them or oppressing them was a better idea.

    Either way - republicans played ZERO role in any of this "Jim Crow" bull**** - especially like I stated previously - the republicans attempted NUMEROUS times to pass a Civil Rights Act and were denied every time by democrats until democrats decided to pass one, and they only did so for the reasons I previously listed.

    I believe it. That's the way it is through so much of the South. People who've never lived there simply cannot grasp what life is like there.

    I call straight up bull****....

    "politically informed voters doing drive bys"

    Funny how none of that **** happens around here where I say unless you have a libertarian sticker on your car or a pro-conservative sticker on your car.

    I saw some crazy lady at a home depot parking lot literally scraping conservative/libertarian bumper stickers off of peoples cars. I confronted her and she responded with "Ill just call the cops" and I said "go right ahead lady" because you're damaging others property and violating their First Amendment rights... She was arrested.

    This all started because the crazy lady didn't like my friends POW MIA flag he hangs in the back window of his van and actually followed us to home depot - gave us the business, pulled out a knife and started looking for any bumper sticker that could even remotely be considered conservative and started scraping them off of peoples cars.

    As far as your driveby crap I don't buy it.

    Of course you believe it because you want to believe it....

    Kinda like that census worker who committed suicide by hanging himself and scratching the words "fed" into his stomach before he did it to make it look like a politically motivated murder..... Yeah that's how crazy some progressives are.

    Progressives will resort to suicide for political reasons.

    Hell, I remember a few years back a progressive bit the finger off a Tea Party member in a disagreement over politics.
