    It doesn't matter, the south was the south - what happened happened, however we need to "move forward" and embrace a society that embraces more personal responsibility and less government intervention, taxation and regulation.

    After all it is our government that is the biggest corporation in the United States, and they steal our liberties daily and our money from the top down.

    Our government is here to protect ourselves from enemies of the state - not to take our money and use it as political cannon fodder or money fodder.

    What the hell are you talking about.

    Today right-wingers can be identified as almost all libertarians and conservatives. They want less government, less taxes on the rich, less spending on the people (the younger ones at least), less or no welfare, less federal government, more "states rights", some are social righties and want a Christian form of Sharia law inflicted upon the people both public and private.

    Left is basically everything that isn't that.

    Southern Democrats of old were Conservatives, they were largely racists. If you believe otherwise I have to wonder how naive you are.

    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.

    "But 'glory' doesn't mean 'a nice knock-down argument'," Alice objected.
    "When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less."
    "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
    "The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master—that's all."
    Alice was too much puzzled to say anything, so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again. "They've a temper, some of them—particularly verbs, they're the proudest—adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs—however, I can manage the whole lot! Impenetrability! That's what I say!"

    Verax, this is who you're arguing with...

    He can decide that progressives are right wingers and conservatives are left,
    he can decide that fascism is socialism, he can decide that 2+2=5.

    Anyone out there know for sure, PM me so I can find out if I was close!

    And the reason I say that is because I am 57 years old and I watched it firsthand.
    And I watched the expression on the faces of people I knew as they saw the newsreel footage on TV.
    National TV network coverage of local civil disturbances in the South was something the networks used to avoid.
    There was a gentleman's agreement between affiliates.
    People up North who had never been down South had never seen firsthand accounts of what went on down there.
    That changed a lot of people almost overnight.

    You might want to ask some old folks around you about that.
    Yeah, I think I'm pretty close on guessing your age.
    You cannot possibly be older than 27 to 35 at the most.

    And that's important because someone in my age bracket most likely would not expect to be able to say something like
    "democrats figured out using blacks for votes instead of lynching them or oppressing them was a better idea" with a straight face.

    There WERE NO REGULAR LYNCHINGS UP NORTH, or in the East, or OUT WEST in those days.
    Oh to be sure there was a certain amount of racism everywhere in America but it didn't work like Jim Crow down South.

    And you're sitting here trying to tell someone who grew up in it how much you know about the history of racism in the Democratic Party
    as if I spent my whole life on another planet or something and it just isn't working, you sound like a fool for trying.

    The only Democrats with a lot of experience lynching were the DIXIECRATS down South.
    When the rest of us saw how the good ole boys took care of business, most of us were horrified.
    And when we realized that the whole WORLD was watching, we became embarrassed and ashamed.
    There was no going back to looking the other way anymore and pretending like it never happened.

    And now you're running around trying to paint a picture of Democrats deciding that lynching was suddenly
    out of style in Minneapolis, Dayton Ohio, Pittsburgh, Boston and New York City.

    With a straight face.
    You sound like a fool.
    This **** was serious and you're making a big joke out of it.
    Don't kid yourself checkers. I'm in my 50s and grew up in Lansing MI, there was a full on KKK group just outside of town. I knew some of them, and they were solid JFK liberals.

    We should judge you libs by your actions because libs words mean so little.

    Yeah yeah yeah and there were Illinois Nazis and members of the old Bund marching around in Gary Indiana.
    And this is what an average day looked like up there in Michigan for a black man.

    From attempting to sound intelligent straight to sarcasm, insult, and personal attacks. Typical. Glad I found out what you're all about in 1 post. Saves me lots of wasted time.

    Um, where do you keep getting these ideas about the things I am saying?

    After taking a nice long look at Jared's page, the only thing I do not see much of is liberal trends and tendencies.
    But I see an awful lot of ANTI-liberal agitprop.

    Here, take a look for yourself and you decide what you think his political leanings were.
    I say it's fairly obvious.

    Libertarian? He is obviously a militant atheist:

    However, my opinion is that we could do without all the bigotry and intolerance religion pushes upon the populace, that religion should be wiped off the planet.
    I suppose many American libertarians are right-leaning, though, even atheist ones. Pretty sure his pro-pot, anti-war, and anti-cop rhetoric would not win him many friends among the Tea Party, however.

    if someone goes to your house when you are having a BBQ and pisses on your front lawn and you stop him and tell him to leave and then later gets caught pissing in the bushes at a child care center and gets charged with public indecency and child abuse are you connected and worthy of guilt by association? I mean after all...there would be a 'tangental' connection...
