    This is the kind of BS spewed by Democrats on a daily basis, and unfortunately the media and other so-called watchdogs are so apparently ignorant of American history, Democrats continue to LIE through their teeth to their constituents, and via academia, to our kids.

    Re: Reid apologizes for 'no Negro dialect' comment

    For Kali and others as misinformed as Kali;

    PART 2

    May 6, 1960
    President Dwight Eisenhower signs Republicans’ Civil Rights Act of 1960, overcoming 125-hour, around-the-clock filibuster by 18 Senate Democrats

    May 2, 1963
    Republicans condemn Democrat sheriff of Birmingham, AL for arresting over 2,000 African-American schoolchildren marching for their civil rights

    September 29, 1963
    Gov. George Wallace (D-AL) defies order by U.S. District Judge Frank Johnson, appointed by President Dwight Eisenhower, to integrate Tuskegee High School

    June 9, 1964
    Republicans condemn 14-hour filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act by U.S. Senator and former Ku Klux Klansman Robert Byrd (D-WV), who still serves in the Senate

    “Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws… On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight.”

    June 10, 1964
    Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) criticizes Democrat filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act, calls on Democrats to stop opposing racial equality. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was introduced and approved by a staggering majority of Republicans in the Senate. The Act was opposed by most southern Democrat senators, several of whom were proud segregationists—one of them being Al Gore Sr. Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson relied on Illinois Senator Everett Dirksen, the Republican leader from Illinois, to get the Act passed.

    August 4, 1965
    Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) overcomes Democrat attempts to block 1965 Voting Rights Act; 94% of Senate Republicans vote for landmark civil right legislation, while 27% of Democrats oppose. Voting Rights Act of 1965, abolishing literacy tests and other measures devised by Democrats to prevent African-Americans from voting, signed into law; higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats vote in favor

    February 19, 1976
    President Gerald Ford formally rescinds President Franklin Roosevelt’s notorious Executive Order authorizing internment of over 120,000 Japanese-Americans during WWII

    September 15, 1981
    President Ronald Reagan establishes the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, to increase African-American participation in federal education programs

    June 29, 1982
    President Ronald Reagan signs 25-year extension of 1965 Voting Rights Act

    August 10, 1988
    President Ronald Reagan signs Civil Liberties Act of 1988, compensating Japanese-Americans for deprivation of civil rights and property during World War II internment ordered by FDR

    November 21, 1991
    President George H. W. Bush signs Civil Rights Act of 1991 to strengthen federal civil rights legislation

    August 20, 1996
    Bill authored by U.S. Rep. Susan Molinari (R-NY) to prohibit racial discrimination in adoptions, part of Republicans’ Contract With America, becomes law

    So the next time any Democrat claims they’ve been supportive of civil rights in America (and been so all along), ask them to explain their past. “We’ve grown” is not gonna cut it, considering they continue to lie about their past to this day.

    And I’m tired of the recitation that Southern Democrats became Republicans and took their racist tendencies with them. It didn’t take the Clintons and Barack Obama (Democrats) long to trade race cards, did it?

    Totally agree. This will get a lot of play because it's Reid.

    I'll cringe when I hear that comment in conversations--when white people are speaking about a black person, and someone has to qualify his education and manner of speaking, implying he's one of the good ones. "Oh, he went to UCLA, and is very articulate when he speaks."

    I got douche chills when I heard Reid said that.

    Yea, he urged him to run because he was a great candidate, to wit, a bright and articulate black man who could still pander to the negro subculture.

    People like Reid aren't living in the real world. You have to be detached from reality in order to say something that incredibly stupid in front of other civilized people.

    Re: Reid apologizes for 'no Negro dialect' comment

    Zimmer:

    Thank you for the history lesson on the Southern Democrats and the progressive GOP of yesteryear.

    Ironic isn't it, that the first black President is a Democrat?

    I wonder if society will again progress to the point where the intolerant become enlightened, and the first openly gay president is a Republican...

    Ah, Zim... this is all great information. I, however, reject that the Democrats who voted against all the civil rights stuff were liberals in any way shape or form. All of the Democrat policies that you mention are, ideologically, conservative by today's standards. This is why your particular argument never holds any water. You are talking about folks who are resistant to change, folks who were fairly strict constitutional constructionists, folks who jumped to the Republican party (after 1964) after many of their positions were defeated. You are confusing political party with political ideology.

    And one other point. Roosevelt interning Japanese-Americans during WWII was absolutely wrong, but was not Democrat policy. It was policy of the time. If a Republican had been President, same thing would have happened.
