    Oh you remember, the same Democrat party that Filibustered the 1964 voting rights act,.

    The same one that was behind the Jim Crow laws.

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

    Northern Ds and Rs voted overwhelmingly for it, Southern Ds and Rs voted nearly unanimously against it.

    1964 civil right bill votes by party
    House of Representatives:
    Democrats for 152 against 96
    Republicans for 138 against 34

    Senate
    Democrats for 46 Against 21
    Republicans for 27 against 6
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    You know, because the Ku Klux Clan is a historically DEMOCRAT organization.
    Sure, but it's historically ALWAYS been a CONSERVATIVE organisation...

    I love it when people call it the "Democrat" (sic) party. Identifies a blind partisan quicker and more accurately than just about anything else a person can do. Very helpful.

    The next best way is linking the Democratic party to the opposition to CRA, Jim Crow, etc.

    And you got them both in one post, which is outstanding!

    Oh yeah, bad policy those both were, however I do believe that it was the Democratic Party, owning to the fact that there is no such thing as a democrat party.

    Won't help them much. The Klan has become very unpopular in most of SC in the past couple decades.


    It was a pretty big deal when I was a kid, actually, but nowadays the SC Klan could barely field a softball team, and most people think they're a joke.

    Now further parse that by region and watch the difference.

    But this tells the real story: From wiki 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%)

    It was probably the SPLC or ADL passing out the candy and flyers for fund raising purposes.......
