Also the dems were again civil rights, they blocked the same bill back in 1957, 1959, and 1960...so yeah wrong again..
Don't forget, it was a Dem who got us into Viet Nam.

A Dem who escalated the war.

And a Repub who got us out.

And please explain why Dr. Martin Luther King was a Republican.

Why are lefties actions always unconstitutional?

Why are their policies always based on coercion?

The increase in big government over the last 100 years is directly proportional to the dumbing down of our citizenry. You folks are a natural fit for the Big Government Age. Thankfully, we have conservatives to counter those measures....otherwise we would have been the Banana Republic that liberals are hoping to achieve long before now.
When a thread is titled "Why is the Right Wing Always on the Wrong Side of History" there's no interest in getting answers.

Why would you even bother to jump into this thread of self aggrandizing back patting liberals?

Come to California where the people have been dumbed down to buffoon status. They'll auto vote for whatever they're told they need. We have 10% of the population, yet 28% of the welfare. Hell, we voted Moonbeam Brown back in, and he was arguably the worst governor we'd ever had, other than Gray Davis. Davis happened to be Browns Chief of Staff... Ironic isn't it? Proof that you only get crap from crap.

Let's put it this way. When Davis was recalled, the two front runners (the choices we gave ourselves) to replace him were Arnold Schwarzenegger and Arianna Huffington. Should I retype that? Think about it for a minute and let it sink in... Arnold Schwarzenegger and Arianna Huffington, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Arianna Huffington... like I said, buffoons are we.

Last time I checked we were as blue as it gets.

Of course, I'm aware of it. Eisenhower was a moderate Northern Republican, and like most northern Republicans and northern liberal democrats, he supported the Civil Rights Act. But right wing southern Democrats opposed Civil Rights. There are hardly any right wing southern democrats anymore. Their descendants made the South the strongest bastion of the former party of Lincoln.

Why don't conservatives get this? Are they really that stupid, or are they just unwilling to actually read America's political history? It's not a hard concept to understand.

The Republican party Abolished slavery

The Republican party Pass the 1964 Civil rights Act, which was passed on a similar bill they tried to pass in 1960 and 3 years before in 1957.

Mean while the left wants to eviscerate the 2nd Amendment, reward illegal immigrates which amnesty and the ability to vote(I wonder which party they will choose), and paint anyone who stands in their way as "Racist" "Nazis" or "Domestic Terrorist"

Why does the Left lie about History, their will, and their intent? is it because no sane person would vote for them?(but then again that might be we they are importing 30,000,000 million illegals on top of 1.2,000,000 legal immigrated, to "Cast ballots Americans just are not willing to cast")

What is your take on this..
I pretty sure that thread was talking about rightwing conservatives. Not what they are currently called.

They were the version of conservatives for the Democratic Party in that conservative democrats held onto the days of slavery, bigotry and racism - that my friend, is one definition of a "conservative democrat."

Why do conservatives tell the lie that today's Republican Party bares any resemblance to the party of Lincoln?

Why do conservative lie about the Republican Party passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964? I've posted the actual vote on numerous occasions. Not only did more Democrats vote for the Civil Rights act than Republicans but when you control for region the percentage of Republicans who voted against the Civil Rights act was overwhelming.

Now that is indeed funny. Eviscerate the 2nd Amendment... too funny. Keeping guns out of the hands of mentally unstable, known felons, and limiting the sale and possession of weapons totally out of proportion to any threat that middle aged suburban white guys require for self-defense that is eviscerating the 2nd Amendment? Ya boy!

Reward or recognize facts on the ground? Thousands of people were brought to this country by their parents and have have grown up as Americans. Offering them a path to becoming legitimate citizens is not a reward it is a just recognition of reality.
