The Republican party freed slaves, promoted Civil Rights, and spearheaded a woman's right to vote.


The South wasn't Republican back then, the South was heavily Democrat.

Why are you taking credit for this shite now?

It's one reason the Dems were leery of Civil Rights for the future - they didn't want to lose the South's votes by pushing through Civil Rights.

This "graph" has absolutely nothing to do with racism in the south.

It can't be stressed enough: The Republican party freed slaves, promoted Civil Rights, and spearheaded a woman's right to vote. I mentioned in a thread last week that all three of these items have come back to haunt the Republican party due to the successfull revisionist history by today's Progressives, their teachers, and their media. No good deed goes unpunished with this group, and the entire Republican Party should know this.


This is why control of all information, learning institutions, all forms of media, etc. is the biggest issue for Republicans. No change in principals are needed. Catering to liberal policies is not the answer. Convincing the public of the value and importance of conservative principals is the answer. You need look no further than the Dem solution for inner city problems and government dependency in general to realize that their policies are a dismal failure.

re: Exposing The Myth Of The "Racist South" After The Civil Rights Movement


yeah b/c i'm half and half and my yankee half is much more racist than my southern half

it is annoying to be in the north around people who make comments about how i'm racist...right before they start making racist jokes

plus, unlike most white progs on here, i actually grew up in a black neighborhood as a kid

lastly, after working on a DEM political campaign, i saw enough of the racial pandering

Yes, and the word "progressive" itself originated in the Republican party. What's the point?

Are people on this board really that confused by words?

progressive is just a label, b/c the DEMs distanced themselves from the term "liberal" in 2004

i'll call them flying spaghetti monsters as long as everyone understands who i'm talking about. it's just a label

Democrats will only start to make progress in this country when they stop identifying and ostracizing "the other"

Wow. So, let me get this straight:

Doesn't fit your narrative, does it?

It can't be true then.

I'm sold.

Just as I knew you and your other "progressive" friends would literally contort yourselfs into various positions trying to explain it away...

So far we have the usual replies:

Trackfan (race baiter) - but THREE people decided for a whole region. I don't care what the numbers or maps say...

VOR - Yeah, the race baiter is right. This can't be real.

Bayou Sam - Doesn't matter. Doesn't explain the myth my party has created.

I can't wait to read others.

let me just ask this question: what is more absurd, (1) the GOP is not racist or (2) the term "Chicago" is a coded racist term?

So let me get this straight. Are you denying that the dixiecrats became republicans?

In any case, in order to decide the evidence, you can't just look at who the states as a whole voted for, because that tells you virtually nothing about the make-up of a population or the motivations o different blocs and coalitions.

And I'd still like to know what my "narrative" is and how this article disproves my "narrative".

The South shifted Republican briefly after the Civil War until the Democrats redrafted state constitutions to institute poll taxes and literary tests to prevent minorities from voting. There is a constant cycle in American history of Democrats rewriting the rules to retain political power. Our state is a great example of that.

well the general argument is that the southern states voted for republicans due to civil rights/black people/racism

so the general argument is one based on implied motivations of different blocs and coalitions

why did these groups take so long to "fit the narrative" of switching to the GOP? if the argument is that they, as a region, supported the GOP, why were they voting for Carter in 76? is it just b/c he's from GA?

quote:

And I'd still like to know what my "narrative" is

i think it is that

quote:

or most precisely, that racist, southern Democrats became Republicans, while DEMs everywhere else flipped the script and championed civil rights and eliminated racism from their ranks
