    no problem.
    You claim that Southern Democrats switched parties for racist reasons. You failed to prove that; which proves my point.

    Reading is for those uppity New York Times big brain book worms.

    The real conservative knows the truth in his gut.

    Yes, really. You're the guys that elected him to your legislature and made him a candidate for statewide office. Let's face it, the views of Louisiana Republicans and the KKK on things like minorities are virtually indistinguishable.

    Southern Democrats - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    After the Civil Rights Movement successfully challenged the Jim Crow laws and other forms of institutionalized racism, and after the Democrats as a whole came to symbolize the mainstream left of the United States, the form, if not the content, of Southern Democratic politics began to change. At that point, most Southern Democrats defected to the Republican Party, and helped accelerate the latter's transformation into a more conservative organization.
    Of course they did, and everybody knows it. Hell, Lee Atwater's 'southern strategy' was based on getting the angry white vote.

    You start out in 1954 by saying, ‘Nigger, nigger, nigger,’ ” said Atwater. “By 1968, you can’t say ‘nigger’ — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states’ rights, and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now [that] you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things, and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites.”

    Since the author of this piece is black, I'm sure it will be dismissed by our very conservative deep South Republican.

    "You guys"? His district--in Metairie--elected him to the legislature.

    It's not up to me to prove you right. That's your job.

    Obviously, the proof doesn't exist, since you refuse to post it.

    Actually, I'm going to dismiss it because it's an opion piece and not primary source documentation explaining why Southern Democrats switched to the Republican party.

    But, hey! I know that opinion is just as good as fact, in Libbo Land.

    Re: Obama threatened, called 'monkey' by ex-Carson council candidate

    Of course you're going to dismiss it. YOu'll undoubtedly dismiss this as well:


    In American politics, the Southern strategy refers to the Republican Party strategy of winning elections in Southern states by exploiting anti-African American racism and fears of lawlessness among Southern white voters and appealing to fears of growing federal power in social and economic matters (generally lumped under the concept of states rights). Though the "Solid South" had been a longtime Democratic Party stronghold due to the Democratic Party's defense of slavery prior to the American Civil War and segregation for a century thereafter, many white Southern Democrats stopped supporting the party following the civil rights plank of the Democratic campaign in 1948 (triggering the Dixicrats), the African-American Civil Rights Movement, the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and desegregation.
    -American chairman The strategy was first adopted under future Republican President Richard Nixon in the late 1960s.[1] The strategy was successful in some regards. It contributed to the electoral realignment of Southern states to the Republican Party, but at the expense of losing more than 90 percent of black voters to the Democratic Party. As the 20th century came to a close, the Republican Party began trying to appeal again to black voters, though with little success.[1] During the 2000s decade, Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman formally apologized for his party's use of the Southern Strategy in the previous century. Michael Steele served as the party's first Africanfrom January 2009-January 2011.

    Southern strategy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And then, of course, there's this:

    Of course this guy was only the Chair of the National REpublican Party. He's probably another resident of 'Libbo Land'.


    Libbo Land, however, is a great response. The kind we've come to expect from Far Right Southern 'conservatives'. Penetrating, inciteful, and indicative of a really good southern education.
