There was one prof who taught both sections and lots of people took it more than once. There was one guy in there who from day one wanted to argue that to leave the writing of Ayn Rand off the course reading list was a crime against political theory. Over and over and over again he would bring up Rand and her ersatz philosophy and the prof would destroy it like flushing a toilet. Everything was based on his own beliefs and his acceptance of what Rand wrote. He never included the works of anybody we were suppose to be talking about or reading. I cannot tell you how much class time was wasted on this nonsense. After a few weeks, he started again the the Prof could no longer take it. He told the guy in no certain terms to shut the hell up and never ever ever bring up Rand and her ideas again or he would get an F in the course and nothing else he did would count.

    The rest of the class sat there stunned and then somebody started clapping and then everybody started clapping and the guy actually started crying and left never to return.

    And that was my first introduction to Ayn Rand and her randroid true believers.

    I post the link knowing full well that you won't read it, but somebody else, who's head isn't buried in the sand (or someplace else) might.

    That's the racist message.
    An interview with one person doesn't disprove the evidence already exists.

    How do you explain the fact that 92% of Republicans voted for the CRA and 71% of Democrats and still call the Republicans the racists?

    I hate to tell you this, but the, "Southern Strategy", is nothing more than propaganda. It take a few coincidental events and turns them into a propagandist story.

    We know this, because your source says that Richard Nixon undertook the strategy in the late 1960's. How can that be, when it was Republicans--including VP Nixon--that wrote the CRA of 1957 and it was the Democrats--Johnson, Gore, et. al.--that tried to vote it down?



    This is an excerpt from the wiki article that thunder posted, which goes even farther to prove you wrong.

    Democrats in the South initially still voted loyally with their party. After the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, white voters who became tolerant of diversity began voting against Democratic incumbents for GOP candidates. The Republicans carried many Southern states for the first time since before the Great Depression.

    I'll be more than happy to prove that Republicans supported the CRA is higher percentages.

    The original House version:[13]
    Democratic Party: 152-96 (61%-39%)
    Republican Party: 138-34 (80%-20%)

    Cloture in the Senate:[14]
    Democratic Party: 44-23 (66%–34%)
    Republican Party: 27-6 (82%–18%)

    The Senate version:[13]
    Democratic Party: 46-21 (69%–31%)
    Republican Party: 27-6 (82%–18%)

    The Senate version, voted on by the House:[13]
    Democratic Party: 153-91 (63%–37%)
    Republican Party: 136-35 (80%–20%)

    The notion that Republicans are, "racists and wanted to deny blacks their rights", isn't supported by the factual information.

    Anything short of that is going to have you keep insisting that nobody has offered any evidence.

    And some uninformed people wonder why colleges demand and insist upon the successful completion of certain courses before students can take advanced courses where their opinions are expected to be defended.

    Have you ever been more wrong Wiggen wrong about any one thing you have ever said to anyone?
    That's exactly what you're going to need, to prove yourself correct. Unless you can read their minds, that is.

    That loud buzzer going BBBBBZZZZTTTTTT in the background is there to tell you that you failed to take the challenge. Nobody is disputing the numbers about the civil rights votes. That is clear. And you have conveniently ignored every single explanation that hs been presented to you regarding them.

    What you were challenged to do was to support with evidence from the historical record that Johnson was referring to those numbers when he made his famous comment about losing the South in future elections. That was your challenge.

    So where is that evidence from you own 'historical research'?

    Again post 290

    from Thunder

    I believe it is Johnson who said "the Democrats have lost the South for a generation", after he signed the Civil Rights Act. And he was right.

    these facts, are known well to most of us. unfortunately, we have a self-proclaimed historian amoungst us who is actually a very poor student of history.
    and the reply from apdst
    Perhaps he was referring to the fact that congressional Republicans voted in favor of the CRA in significantly larger percentages than Democrats.
    Present your evidence that LBJ somehow someway was deluded enough to believe that the Southern voter was actually going to embrace the GOP because Northern Republicans had voted for the civil rights bills. This should be good.

    nor is your ridiculous claim that Liberals are just as racist as the KKK.

    Margaret Sanger created the Negro Project, so the facts actually do support that claim. She gave a speech at klan rally on the subject of eugneics involving the black community in America. She was a Progressive.

    That's why it's so insanely ironic that MLK received the Margaret Sanger Award.
