The democrats have never really gotten it.
When Lyndon Johnson was forced to force Congress to pass civil rights legislation it was REPUBLICAN Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinios who kept prevented a filibuster by the southern democrats who were opposed to the legislation.
Hmmm...the civil rights movement started in the south....George Wallace, then governor of Alabama swore that integration of the schools would never happen.
The senator (Hillary Clinton ) was quoted as saying King's dream of racial equality was realized only when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
I guess I must be stupid. You see I REMEMBER the newspaper articles about Rosa Parks being arrested in Montgomery. I REMEMBER the civil rights workers both black and white that were killed. WOW a couple of people actually were convicted of those crimes over 30 years later. I remember how at our high school one of my friends was arrested for wearing a black power shirt. I REMEMBER how all the the students at that high school both black and white walked out in protest. I REMEMBER when having black friends got a white person called a n*&&^% lover.
I REMEMBER. Which is more than Hillary can say.
What if LBJ had not been forced to push this legislation?
Would there still be lynchings?
Would civil rights workers still be killed and their bodies buried in unmarked graves?
Would protesters still be subject to water canons or bullets such as met the war protesters at Kent State?
Would there still be segregated water fountains and restrooms?
LBJ did not do shit. His ass was forced to do something because this country was torn apart. All he did was give people the mistaken message that the Democratic party really cared.
Hope everyone now knows the truth.
