    I did not say they did not, but as I just posted, they also printed DeBerry's article of support for the Senator.

    Don't me wrong, the Picayune is still and will always be a Left wing propaganda rag, just not for Mary.
    Uh, they have not reversed their endorsement for the Senator.

    So you have no voting record of any of them? Hmmm. Interesting. I wonder why? Well, let's see:

    http://www.ohiohistorycentral.org/w/...Party?rec=2121
    What you have is the first three civil rights acts pushed by Republicans in Republican controlled congresses and in one case overturning a Democratic Presidential veto. You do not have (Until Humphrey) Democrats pushing civil rights issues.


    Alright, so we have that as early as the 1850s, the Democrats had split in two over... well you guessed it race. This lasted until AT LEAST 1860. Strike one for the claim that it was a homogenous movement of anti-civil rights within the Democrats. So now, let's address the fact that Republicans passing civil rights act shall we (well aside from the fact that you have no voting records):

    The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow | PBS



    Compromise of 1877 - U.S. Presidents - HISTORY.com



    Alright, so what do we have. We have, Northern and Southern Democrats being split before the civil war. We have Republicans handing back control to Democrats in the 1870s and we have this:

    THE DEATH OF RECONSTRUCTION - Heather Cox RICHARDSON - Google Books

    Attachment 67175290

    Well! My oh my! We have Northern Democrats courting black voters, we have Southern Democrats attacking them. Hey, the pattern doesn't seem to change much and look, I got all my sourcing. Do you? Well, I know you don't but do you know what all of these things put together mean? They mean that the Democratic Party wasn't the united force you keep presenting it as EVEN in the 19th century.




    Please do, they'll display your ignorance on this topic to an even wider extent.
    What you actually have is Democrats split over slavery. In the 1850s you had a new wave of Democrats in the north "The young Americans" embracing technology and industry and opposing slavery for economic reasons. Slave labor produced poorly compared to free labor in industrial endeavors. This doesn't in anyway imply that they supported equality between blacks and whites. In addition to the CRAs you also have the 13th through 15th amendments, pushed by Republicans. Also pushed by Republicans was the 19th Amendment, originally introduced some 40 years before adoption by....a republican, and passed with greater Republican support than Democratic. Republicans put forth nearly 200 anti-lynching laws that were all blocked by Democrats between 1882 and 1968.

    The split in the Democratic party before the war resulted in the Free-soilers joining with the Whigs to form the Republican party. What you had left in the North were northern Democrats that did not leave the party over the issue of slavery, and continued to support southern Democrats.

    Coincidentally, the first African-Americans, the First Asian American, and the First Female elected to office were all Republicans. This, more than anything, supports that these policies were Republican pushed not only by Elected Republicans....but by their constituents.

    http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/?pid=29576

    From the Democratic party plank of 1856:

    Resolved, That we reiterate with renewed energy of purpose the well considered declarations of former Conventions upon the sectional issue of Domestic slavery, and concerning the reserved rights of the States.

    1. That Congress has no power under the Constitution, to interfere with or control the domestic institutions of the several States, and that such States are the sole and proper judges of everything appertaining to their own affairs, not prohibited by the Constitution; that all efforts of the abolitionists, or others, made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to take incipient steps in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences; and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend of our political institutions.

    2. That the foregoing proposition covers, and was intended to embrace the whole subject of slavery agitation in Congress; and therefore, the Democratic party of the Union, standing on this national platform, will abide by and adhere to a faithful execution of the acts known as the compromise measures, settled by the Congress of 1850; "the act for reclaiming fugitives from service or labor," included; which act being designed to carry out an express provision of the Constitution, cannot, with fidelity thereto, be repealed, or so changed as to destroy or impair its efficiency.

    3. That the Democratic party will resist all attempts at renewing, in Congress or out of it, the agitation of the slavery question under whatever shape or color the attempt may be made.

    Greetings, Gimmesometruth.

    I thought that my post which said "both parties" would have shown that I believe both are guilty! As far as calling anybody out, I don't do that because everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Who am I to judge them right or wrong?

    1) that article was before she shot her dumbass mouth off.

    2) in effect, they dumped her, when they allowed Varney to write his piece for their loyal readers to think about all weekend.

    When it comes to Liberalism, yes. Liberalism is a religion to Leftists.

Members of the rightwing GOP have used posters at Republican rallies referring to Obama as a monkey and no republican stepped in to say this is wrong. One cannot blame African Americans from running from the GOP as if the devil himself were after them. Also, since Obama is the first African American president, racism in America is at an all time high....it is fear from Whites that they are losing the upper hand. The Tea Party came into focus because they were so against this president. Mitch McConnell, Kentucky, Senate Minority leader, said on Obama's first Inauguration eve that he and his party would do everything in their power to make sure Obama failed. If the President of the United States fail, then the American people will fail. There is gridlock in the senate because these Republicans simply hate the African American president because he is black.

    Fortunately for President Obama, the US consists of more than just white men/women; it was Latinos, Gays, Liberals, Independents, College students, Asians, moderates and African Americans who placed him in office the second time.
    By the year 2040 the changing demographic (Latinos) in America will alter drastically the voting pattern of the US
    .


    When the massive demographic change that is hurting the GOP right now hits full force like a tidal wave in about 30 years the GOP will be reduced to a small, regional party.

    Don't take my word for this-wait and see what happens.

    That's when America's demise will begin. It'll be a shame. The greatest nation in history flushed down the toilet, just like that.

    Gays and college students aren't white?
