    Doesn't this mean that if Democrats hadn't supported it, it wouldn't have passed either? Actually, Democrats voted 46 for and 21 against in the Senate... meaning they only really needed 5 Republican votes. With that little fact aside (the one where without Democrats party this bill wouldn't have passed - as Republicans didn't have the numbers to pass the bill on their own) let's look at the actual numbers. Since you brought up the numbers, I thought it would be interesting to show this:

    Civil Rights Act of 1964 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Senate

    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%)
    House

    Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7–93%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0–100%)
    Northern Democrats: 145–9 (94–6%)
    Northern Republicans: 138–24 (85–15%)
    In short, if you were a Southerner, REGARDLESS OF PARTY, you voted against this. It certainly paints a different picture than what you're trying to present. Republicans had a negligible presence in the South at this point but even so, members of the Republican party in the South voted unanimously against this bill. What does that tell us? That you're being disingenuous by trying to paint Republicans as endorsers of the CRA'64. Not only did they take an assisting role in passing the bill, Republicans who lived in the South voted against this bill in greater percentages than their Democratic counterparts.

    So Wikipedia has been edited as part of an elaborate strategy to revise history? If I were to look at another encyclopedia it would contain a completely different reality?

    What if I Googled those terms? Would I find "the truth"? What if I researched the references in those Wikipedia entries, are they all fictional too?

    I've heard all this stuff explained on tv as well, are they all part of this elaborate forgery?

    Wait a minute... I read about this in school... are my teachers and the textbook publishers part of this as well??? Oh my GOSH! It's a complete liberal conspiracy from top to bottom!!!! The Illuminati are everywhere!?!?

    I think you watch too much ****ing youtube.

    Give me one good reason to give a rational **** about what a progressive has to say?? to them I'm a racist hatemonger who wants to see blacks drown in the sea of capitalism.. Meanwhile you want them to have free boats paid for by me because you don't like me - that or "conservatives" whom I assume you believe are like 70, old and white.

    I thought this thread was about a crazy, racist couple that went on a shooting spree. When did we start talking about rap?

    So here is the thing. Yes Bundy was a cheat who used anti-government fervor to gin up support from the right wing noise machine and attracted complete idiots and horrible human beings to his cause. But that doesn't mean he is at all responsible for the lunatics themselves. His call to arms was self-serving and I think traitorous but then I am a crazy liberal right? But just because he attracted people who are willing to kill for some imagined cause doesn't make him a player in their actions. That is completely idiotic. I will say that some of the rhetoric coming from some of the anti-government nuts and the right wing noise machine gives these guys a sense of power. I think there are people with big microphones who are also all about themselves who put on a show and care little about how they might influence someone. But the facts remain. While I find many in the right wing noise machine to be horrible people for their actions, if we hold them responsible for the likes of these two pseudo-revolutionaries then we sink to a level that abdicates their responsibility.

    Now I will hold accountable the liars who try to link these two to liberalism, they are as delusional as those who try to link Hitler to left wing causes or fascism to the left. We call those people liars or ignorant of reality.
