    Lincoln suspended habeus corpus rights. Therefore, all Republicans to this day have no respect for them. You can run from your history or accept it.

    But conservative Republicans — those represented politically by Goldwater, and intellectually by William F. Buckley and National Review — did oppose the civil rights movement. Buckley wrote frankly about his endorsement of white supremacy:


    "the White community in the South is entitled to take such measures as are necessary to prevail, politically and culturally, in areas in which it does not predominate numerically."


    More often conservatives argued on grounds of states' rights, or freedom of property, or that civil rights leaders were annoying hypocrites, or that they had undermined respect for the law.

    True that.

    So are his policies relevant or not?

    Atwater was one political consultant among many. He was also a decent guitarist. And GOP inroads in the South predated him by 20 years. Btw, I have my problems with the Repubs too, but your form of gasbaggery is just too much fun to puncture.

    Hubert Humphrey was not considered a serious threat, and he and Wallace were appealing to opposite constituencies.

    The American Experience | George Wallace: Settin' the Woods on Fire | People & Events | 1968 Campaign


    To hippies who said he was a Nazi, he replied, “I was killing fascists when you punks were in diapers.” Another memorable quote: “They’re building a bridge over the Potomac for all the white liberals fleeing to Virginia.”

    The Wallace campaign was comfortably ahead in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Wallace’s aides insisted that the campaign focus on winning the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee.
