Robert Byrd was a conservative racist that went on to create a conservative third party after this, only later to admit that what he did in 1964 was in fact racist.
it does not alter the fact he was a democrat, and the party has a massive history will racism and the Klan....and yet paint the right as the bad guys, its ok if I had a horrific, blood soked past of the Democatic party I would rewrite history as well.

The modern democrat party is STILL the same racist party. They believe AA's are inferior, and require the government's help at every turn. They believe AA's simple can't compete with other races, which is why they promote affirmative action, preferential hiring practices for minorities, etc. And if that doesn't do the trick, then they should be given a wealth transfer, preferably from Caucasians.

And it's pretty hard to ignore the liberal genocide that's well underway. Planned parenthood is nothing more than a systematic slaughter of minority fetuses. AA's aren't even reproducing at replacement levels because of the liberal agenda.

New age, same party, same bigoted philosophy.

Freeing the slaves is a kind of a big one to miss! Lincoln was a Republican, Republicans freed the slaves.

Don't forget the Republican Party itself was actually a marriage of the Whigs & the anti-slavery wing of the Democratic party who broke away from the Democratic pro-slavery platform.

You also missed being against the KKK. Yes the KKK was founded during the Reconstruction as a backlash. They were essentially insurgents against the Republican led Union/North. They went around killing Blacks & White Republicans. Wanna guess what party these White Southerners supported?

I've never voted Republican in my life, but the OP & your posts are ignorant.

Well that is a generalization and basically a lie. But you keep believe it if it makes you feel superior.

Then you obviously have no idea what you are talking about, which is what I expect out of you. Maybe if you would have paid attention in history, you might of learned something rather than assumed you knew the answer before hearing the facts.

if you take a race based map of every major city and over lay it with a map of planned parenthood they really line up with the black/Hispanic areas.

Dont believe me try it using Google map for Planned parenthood

and for race use this map.

Any thoughts on why the right never seems to win in the end?

For reference, this is the story I heard on Morning Edition: NPR Media Player
Bigots will always be on the bottom, and approach problems from the bottom.

Amazing, isnt it? Maybe the problem is that your critics are the product of liberal controlled public schools, and cant read at all.
