Was it Liberals or Conservatives that passed the Civil Rights Act, Voting Rights Act, and ended segregation?

"Both" in the sense that Liberals & Conservatives passed the DREAM Act & ACA b/c a few Conservatives breaking away from their party to vote for the Liberal agenda?

Historians conclude liberals. The Republican Party was a liberal party in the mid-1800s. Lincoln was a Republican.

We've been here before: Would Abraham Lincoln be a liberal Democrat today?

They were liberals back then, but so was the idea of freedom. Now, 'liberals' don't give give a crap about freedom, they care about your obligation to others.

Can you clarify which question are you asking? The title of your thread doesn't correspond with the questions you have posted.
The slaves were freed a century earlier before the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act.

If you can't figure out how to make sense of the two questions that everyone else seems to understand, then that's on you.

Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act, and supported slavery and segregation.

Republicans supported and passed the CRA and VRA, and fought against the odious "s" institutions.

May I also inquire which Civil Right Act is the OP targeting? 1866? 1957? 1964? 1968?

Let's be very clear modern day conservatives have nothing to do with American history going back much past FDR.

Modern day conservatism is mostly a backlash movement that was formed to be in opposition to all the dramatic changes that have happened in this nation since FDR.


This is why conservatives are mostly anti- this or that. Modern American conservatism is the defined by who it perceives as its enemies and who it is against.

Whereas generally speaking the Democratic party tries to serve all interests or at least represents itself as being interested in serving all interests, the conservative party makes definite choices.

It says screw unions,screw those interested in poverty, screw those interested in racial inequality, screw those interested in gender discrimination, screw those who are interested in immigrants, homosexual rights, the environment, etc and so on.

The conservative party says we are only going to represent these very narrow interests which we conservatives define as American interests and if you aren't on board with that then you are our enemy and you are out to destroy America.
