That was true of northern democrats and after Johnson was elected. My family were Ww2 veterans. They were all for stopping communism, Korea and Nam.

The Democrat downfall in the 1960s was mostly because of the Viet Nam war.

I got to vote in 72 because they lowered voting age to 18. I voted for McGovern because he was anti war.

Yeah, way back in the old days it was the democrats that were for slavery and against civil rights and so on, but they switched platforms because the democratic party wasn't pro slavery enough any more.

You people really should do that thing called research before you spout this crap, because they'll mistake this nonsense for the truth the same way you did.

...Inconvenient truth is that you're mistaken.

McGovern was a commie. I didn't like Tricky Dick but McGovern got beaten in the POTUS election pretty bad I recall. I was too young to vote but do remember he wanted to cut military to like 20%. That seemed a lot whatever the number to my young mind. Especially with all the crap in Eastern Europe and the beginnings of al Qaeda like terrorisism at the Olympics of all places.

Yep, not brothers though. I had black friends who I made because they had went whom i met after they got back from Nam also. I learned a lot from the Nam vets when I was in the Army in a mobile medical unit (MASH). War is hell and innocent people being saved is why it happens that free men go fight in the war. Communism / Socialism / Nazism / Marxism has a lot of innocent blood on it's hands. Free loving people who made a difference is what those soldiers were about and the hippies hated the wrong ones. It was those we now call 'One Worlders" all along who perpetuate stupid war and allow crimes against humanity to go unpunished. (rant off sorry)

A very long but interesting read that tries to answer what has changed in the political parties since the civil war.

But my brothers and peers had no choice. They were drafted. That is what the "hippies" objected to.

Except the R's that I know of in this state voted for other people who did not switch from D. There are some good points in that about the platforms but hate filed Dems lost the people here. Doing the wrong thing lost them too and the D's go out of their way to act like the people are trash. The very people who can elect someone else and so we did. AL Gore lost his home state of TN in the election against Shrub the faux conservative. Alabama voted a senator who personally convicted a members of the KKK to long sentences in the gray bar motel with the testimony of a man who's family I go to church with and they call him racist towards blacks anyway. Southerners love others more than anywhere else if you want to know the truth. We don't like liars and thieves either and the politicians are on thin ice here.

So, I posted the link at 2:16, and by 2:23 you not only read the entire thing, then commented. To quote Mr. Spock, fascinating.

We're all just "re-living the history that our predecessors tried so hard to erase"....we are in the middle of it now and are just to sheepish to see it...both sides are in denial. Deep, deep, denial. As another poster said, when we have 6 corp own almost all WE see , hear & read then that power controls our thought process, and we are lead around like sheep. This is world wide not just Murica. Every country has that thing that holds their people down, whether it's Freedom, communism, totalitarian rule, sharia law, etc etc etc. All to keep the mass's in line and controllable. Freedom is an illusion for the most part.

Could you tell us how different the democratic party, and many others in the left are now to the original democratic party?

The democratic party, and many in the left claim to be speaking for minorities, but when minorities happen to lean to the right in politics we hear the same racist chants from many people in the left as we hear them from true white nationalists.

Democrats being racists against whites.



Democrats/the left being racists against minorities.



Here is a white democrat, ironic, calling a black Trump supporter a racist...




This is the truth behind these riots, and protests from the left... This shows what their ultimate goal is, and if those among you in the left who don't want this to happen keep quiet and don't denounce, and separate yourselves from these far leftwingers, those goals will become reality.



If those among you who are in the left, but do not agree with the far leftwingers, if you say nothing to stop the hate mongers in the left, they will continue to gather more people from the left, including your children, and they will be brainwashed into being far left-wingers who become racists against anyone who disagrees with them politically.

This is why the democratic party started using minorities such as blacks to gather more votes.

Warning it shows the truth about many democrats who were/are racists.



Here is one of the many among the minorities who are not part of the left, yet the left love to call racist.



Here is another person who is part of the minority but happens to be conservative telling the truth about the democratic party.

Not to mention the fact Lyndon B. Johnson saying he would have "'n-word's voting democrat for the next 200 years" kind of undermines the lefts argument about the party changing. If anything all evidence to date says nothing has changed other than how they exploit black voters.

Are you kidding? Before the civil Rights movement, using the n word was an every day word. Especially for southerners and Texans.

and Democrats tried to stop the civil rights act from going into effect and when it passed, Johnson / Democrats decided to change tactic so they would vote for democrats.

The statues being ripped down were the legacy of the democratic party, not Republicans.

Johnson used the word "'n-word'" in the same manner the Ku Klux Klan did.

stop trying to make excuses.
