    Did you never learn (that's rhetorical -- I know you're incapable) that Johnson rightly predicted that the Democratic party lost the South by enacting the Voting Rights Act in 1965? He knew -- everyone knew -- that the many racist country bumpkin honkey cracker cunts like you would hold equality against them and instead find a home in the Republican party where you all would sip moonshine on your porches while screaming into empty air about niggers, faggots, spics, and towel heads for the rest of your miserable existences. I'm not even surprised that you and the rest of the JPP cultists don't have any clue how you became the way you are. To be a modern American conservative requires ignorance and stupidity.

    Democrats were opposing the Civil Rights Act in 1964. Kinda shoots your assertion all to hell.

    Hm..now that I think about it..my HS was integrated in 1961. Before the Civil Rights Act was passed.
    Oh. You want to find a middle school history teacher. I have neither the time nor the patience to teach your unteachable ass an absurdly simple and uncontroversial lesson about American politics. In all my life and all over the globe, I have never once met a non-American who is more ignorant about American history than the most ignorant Americans. You're standing in a forest and don't know what a tree is.

    Yeah, it's been a while in CO as well. Folks have celebrated it longer than that in both states though.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

By 1964, with civil rights marching onward, it was clear that his fellow Democrats disagreed. Thurmond jumped ship, joining the Republican Party that year."

    Are you autistic? You don't have to answer honestly, but your compulsive and repetitive posting behavior is a red flag. I'm a former educator and trained to encourage you to be evaluated.

It's a psychological marvel, but that's not my expertise.

    You wanted a name. You got a name. You're literally pathetic to behold -- even on an anonymous internet board I truthfully pity you.

    I don't think Flash and I know each other, although I have seen some of his posts. Anyway, you're swatting at bats over your head that aren't actually there. You're embarrassing yourself.

    I don't know what kind of "touched" life you've lived, but mere assertions, especially those that are demonstrably false, don't mean anything in an argument. You are a terrible and terribly stupid person.

    "Founded in 1865, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) extended into almost every southern state by 1870----Its members waged an underground campaign of intimidation and violence directed at white and Black Republican leaders. "


    "The civil rights movement of the 1960s also saw a surge of Ku Klux Klan activity, including bombings of Black schools and churches and violence against Black and white activists in the South."
