It has been pointed out on this site many times, and I imagine OP knows, that the parties switched ideals in regard to that and many other things. Even pretending to not know that is a little silly, at this point.



Load of crap


Democrats have always been Democrats and all the policies prove it over time.

Pretty much everything to do with racism in America came from the Democrat party. The fact we even have to educate libtards on this is sad. Libs try to claim the parties switched to cover up their own ignorance of supporting Democrats. Like a lot of history, Dems are good at writing what actually happened to suit whatever meme they come up with to cover up their own failures.

Only three of the major Dixiecrats were/switched to Republican party - Storm Thurmond, Mills Godwin, and Jesse Helms. Here is a list of the 20 or so politicians who were considered Dixiecrats:

Orval Fabus
Benjamin Travis Laney
John Stennis
James Eastland
Allen Ellender
Russell Long
John Sparkman
John McClellan
Richard Russell
Herman Talmadge
George Wallace
Lester Maddox
John Rarick
Robert Byrd
Al Gore, Sr.
Bull Connor
Strom Thurmond
Jesse Helms
Mills Godwin

You'll notice some familiar names on that list. Al Gore, Sr. Yes, the father of Al Gore, Jr. Our own Democrat Vice President under Clinton. You also see, Robert Bryd - actual KKK member and DEMOCRAT. You know, Hillary Clinton's mentor and Democrat Speaker of the House back in 1989.

The Republican party made in roads in the south mainly due to economics. The south started booming economically in the 70s/80s. Suburban areas were growing rapidly and many gravitated to the Republican party as they were making more money.

This entire meme that the parties switched is bunk. So only three "Dixiecrats" out of 20 identify with Republicans, several of the others remain in leadership in the Democrat party and we are supposed to believe that tens of thousands of people just up and decided to change parties? This makes no factual sense nor is it logical. But libs never let that get in the way of their revisionist history memes.

Hilary's mentor that she "Loved and respected" in the democratic party and paid tribute to.

You do know that Robert Byrd denounced the KKK and did a whole lot of things to make up for his past, right?
He was even honored by the NAACP.
Linky, linky...

Nope.
I see Black Bloc anarchists, trying to disrupt peaceful protests, dressed like that though.

Excerpt from: www.washingtonpost.com... age%2Fin-the-news&utm_term=.248959c3e171

""The Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan,” Cruz (R-Tex.) said in an interview on Fox News on Wednesday. “You look at the most racist — you look at the Dixiecrats, they were Democrats who imposed segregation, imposed Jim Crow laws, who founded the Klan. The Klan was founded by a great many Democrats.”"

Also, DEMOCRATS were in charge of the cities, towns, and police departments that jailed, fire-hosed, and turned attack dogs loose on Blacks in the 1960's.

And he would be correct.

Why do you keep trying to spread easily debunked lies?
Is it because you're just a liar and, lies are all that you have? I bet that's it.


I knew one of you would show up claiming that Byrd denounced the KKK. I find it funny that liberals don't seem to have the same propensity to forgive when it comes to conservatives. Trent Lott got ran out of DC for praising Jesse Helms at his birthday party. Trump is a racist for settling an unfounded lawsuit in 1973. I mean we can pull up all kinds of examples...

Hypocrisy still is and will remain the hallmark of the "progressive" left. As is shown here and everywhere else.

Remember when democrat controlled states threatened to leave the union so they could keep their cheap laborers?

California last week.

Historical facts are now "alternative" facts? I can understand now why we have such a screwed up country.

I reckon it is also an "alternative fact" that it is beyond convenient hypocrisy that groups like BLM and social justice warriors everywhere try to hold white America's feet in the fire for slavery which ended 150 years ago, the political view of women prior to suffrage, America dropping the bomb on Japan 80 years ago, and a whole litany of other outdated BS whines while also entirely disregarding the fact that the Democratic party was the party of discrimination, exclusivity, and state's rights while the GOP was founded on a base of what would today be called "progressive ideology." Either accept history or shut the hell up about it, please pick one.

Goddamnit that is an incredible comment! Those who believe historical facts are "alternative facts" are apparently destined to repeat them...

Has anybody here, who disagrees with Cruz, seen Dinesh D'Souza's "Hillary's America?" It is very relevant to this thread...

What do you think?

Like saying a child abuser renounced there ways, hate like that lays very deep! I'll be the adult here and not add personal attacks like you enjoy. By the way, what party fought Lincoln, or more recently the civil acts laws?! Thought so, you can't change history, just spin it. Now spin away........a reply to: NotTooHappy

I think Cruz has it right. I think the DNC should have Sayyed Ali Khamenei as their chairman since they seem to share the same views

During the Civil War times, the Democrats were the party of states rights and the Republicans were the party of stronger federal government. The only reason Lincoln held off on forcing the southern states to give up slavery was because he was afraid it would kill their economy, not because he was so worried about states rights to hold slaves. He had no problem telling new states they weren't allowed to have slaves. This is not a debatable point. This made the southern states very nervous, as they felt it would only be a matter of time before Lincoln would tell them what he was telling new states.

The switch between the parties really started when Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into Law. Although most Republicans were in favor of the Civil Rights Act, there were a handful of Southern Republicans who were against it. Barry Goldwater was one. He was nominated to head up the Republican National Convention right after the Civil Rights Act happened. Shortly after that, Southern Democrat Strom Thurmond (also against the Civil Rights Act) switched to the Republican party, with the goal of reforming the party to appeal to Southern voters. This, and the "Southern Strategy", developed by Nixon, pretty much confirmed the switch. Republicans who championed the Civil Rights Act were basically being shut out of their party, or they left when they saw what was happening to their party.

Yesterday's Democrats are today's Republicans. Yesterday's Republicans are today's Democrats.


The tragedy of the Republican Party is that, when Democrats began to do the right thing, key figures in the GOP welcomed Thurmond into its fold and began to craft not just a “Southern strategy” but a politics of reaction. There were plenty of Republicans who resisted the trend at the time, and there have been plenty of Republicans since (notably former Congressman Jack Kemp and former Secretary of State Colin Powell) who have sought to broaden the party’s focus and appeal.

But as one of the great Republican advocates of civil rights, John Lindsay, noted when he left the GOP in 1971, “Today the Republican Party has moved so far from what I perceive as necessary policies… that I can no longer try to work within it.”
