Ann Coulter - October 12, 2011 - WINGLESS, BLOODSUCKING AND PARASITIC: MEET THE FLEA PARTY!

Quote:
For nearly a century after the Civil War, congressional Republicans kept introducing bills that implemented the civil rights amendments -- only to be blocked by segregationist Democrats. But then, attorney Thurgood Marshall came along and began winning cases before the Supreme Court, redeeming black Americans' constitutional rights through the judiciary.

As long as a Republican sat in the White House, those victories were enforced. In 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower sent the 101st Airborne to Little Rock, Ark., to walk black children to school in defiance of the segregationist, Democratic governor of Arkansas, Orval Faubus -- Bill Clinton's friend.

This is what our Constitution was designed for: to use the force of the federal government to uphold the law when the states couldn't (Shays' Rebellion) or wouldn't (segregationist Democrats).

If Richard Nixon had won the 1960 election instead of John F. Kennedy -- as some say he did -- there never would have been a need for Rosa Parks, the Freedom Rides and the rest of the civil disobedience of the civil rights movement.

But as soon as the Democrats got control of the White House, enforcement of the Supreme Court's civil rights rulings came to a crashing halt. Elected Democrats in the states were free to violate legitimate constitutional rulings without interference from Democratic presidents.
It's too bad so much of this history is not taught in schools today but considering who controls the schools, it is really not surprising.

There is a reason MLK and his entire family, were lifetime Republicans.

Ann Coulter is just one of many well-paid provocateurs. She is paid to stir up trouble. She is no different than Limbaugh or Olbermann.

No, she's worse--a pure hatemonger and a horrible human being.

This rubbish amazes me. Doesn't anyone realize that Democrats and Republicans have switched ideologies since the Civil War? In 1860, the Republicans were the big government party, while the Dems supported states rights. Gradually in the twentieth century, the roles switched, while now the Republicans support states' rights. The Democrats' past support for segregation does not automatically mean that current democrats are racist. To say otherwise is simply stupid.

It emerged in 1854 to combat the Kansas Nebraska Act which threatened to extend slavery into the territories, and to promote more vigorous modernization of the economy. It had almost no presence in the South, but in the North it enlisted most former Whigs and former Free Soil Democrats to form majorities, by 1858, in nearly every Northern state. With the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, and its success in guiding the Union to victory and abolishing slavery, it came to dominate the national scene until 1932.

I suggest you do a little recon on the subject.

I know, right? What gets me is that it's so obvious. You really would have to be a complete moron to not know that the GOP and Dems have switched ideologies. The things that Lincoln supported in 1862 would NEVER fly with today's Republicans. AT ALL!

Damn you beat me to it. However, your remarks are so true and just how I would have said those things. Great sharing of some truth.
