Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

This coming from a person who claimed Jefferson illegally bought the continent of Louisiana.

Maybe, you should have skipped commenting on anything to do with history.

Just as in the South, you've got black parts of town and white parts. The smaller the town the clearer the demarcation but the cities still have distinct divisions along lines of color. In small towns down here there still is a "wrong side of the tracks".

When Nixon & the Southern Strategy emerged, nearly the entire party of Southern Democrats/Dixiecrats & Northern conservatives made up nearly the whole of the Republican party so, again you're wrong Bettie Lou!
You do know Lincoln was Republican and it was the Dems who fought changes that allowed blacks more freedoms after the war. How does this fit into racist theory?

IT is glaring apparent that you do not know history and when you are refereed to resources on history that you refuse to read the material.

It is obvious that you are wanting to stay willfully ignorant so you may continue to stick with an unsupported viewpoint.

I am sure the mid-East Muslims would agree with your description of them being mindless, void of feelings and without ethics prior to the arrival of the US.
The mid-east are a bunch of tribes that have fought with each other over land and over is it Sunni or Shitte for centuries in a very ruthless manner. They knew hate and violence way before the intrusion of the outside world.
Really?
Did you forget so quickly bin Landen was friends of the West before he wasn't.
The Koran tells followers how to treat those who are not
- Fight and slay those who don't convert wherever
you find them
- Believers, take neither Jew nor Christians for your
friends
- Those who reject Islam are "the vilest of creatures"
and thus deserve no mercy
They were already taught to hate us.
Wow, which right wing islamophobic site did you cull those gems from? I've read the Koran, the first quote is the only one that might be correct. You haven't read it and haven't "checked your sources" so get busy.

As for your first sentence ... you're implication is juvenile, I never said anything remotely resembling that. As long as you keep trying to put words in my mouth I will treat you as the idiot you present yourself to be. If you want to change that, bring an honest argument. Otherwise, quit whining about the ridicule.

Perhaps your party would do better if they focused on smaller government instead of legalizing pot.
Legalizing pot is just a by-product of smaller government. Meanwhile, you voted for Bush his second term after proving himself to be one of the LEAST fiscal conservatives in modern history; taking a surplus and turning it into the biggest deficit since WWII.

I'm sure you've got some principles in there somewhere, you just let the Republicans sucker you every time.

The ignorant also maintained that all the Dixiecrats became Republicans shortly after passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, another big liberal lie.

Dixiecrats Richard Russell, Mendell Rivers, Clinton's mentor William Fulbright, Robert Byrd, Fritz Hollings and Al Gore Sr. and more, remained Democrats till their dying day.

Dixiecrat - Senators.(D)VA Harry F. Byrd, 1933-1965 (D)VA A. Willis Robertson, 1946-1966 (D)MS John C. Stennis, 1947-1989 (D)MS James O. Eastland, 1941-1941,1943-1978 (D)LA Allen J. Ellender, 1937-1972 (D)LA Russell B. Long, 1948-1987 (D)NC Sam Ervin, 1954-1974 (D)NC Everett Jordan, 1958-1973 - 2003,(D)WV Robert Byrd remained a member of the KKK and made "Exalted Cyclops" much lower rank then a Grand Dragon...

Former Democrat George Wallace, and and a few others became independents..American Independent Party Lester Maddox, and John Rarick.

The Dixiecrats did not become Republicans. Democrats created the Dixiecrats and when the civil rights movement succeeded, they returned to the racist Demokratic fold.

It's the culture...

Remember you are supporting NJ's claim that the only reason someone votes Rep is because they are racist
Go ahead, jump over the cliff of irrationality with him.
Lying through your buck teeth again huh! I never said all republicans are racist. I said you Republican assholes on this thread don't hide your racism. Did I lie or something? You're a racist surrounded by a bunch of Negro flingers as back ups. It's in you. It's not something you can disregard to fit in with everyday people. Your racism shows it's had in every post!

You are attempting to claim that the CRA suddenly made Dem leaders who had centuries of bigotry behind them like Gore and Byrd suddenly not racist?
The Southern Dems did not suddenly become Reps. There was a variety of causes for the Southern shift. 1) Black population moving away from the South 2) Rejection of Dem leaders policies of the past 3) non-racial policies such as taxes and spending
To claim that the Southern Dems switched parties because they were racist is a NJ fantasy trip in his lame attempt to outrun the history of Southern Dems. It was childish on NJ part and I find it amusing how many Progressives rushed in to join in with it. Check out who pushed through the CRA -hint it wasn't the Dems voting as bloc to support it.
Out of that pile of BS let's just grab the low hanging fruit and go from there:

Before the Voting Rights Act of 1965 most blacks in the south were disenfranchised.

Go ahead, explain away.

Strom Thurmond appointed Thomas Moss, an African American, to his staff in 1971, the first such appointment by a member of the South Carolinian congressional delegation.
In 1983, Strom Thurmond supported legislation to make the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. a federal holiday.
Now let's talk about Robert Byrd. But first I'd like to see the source and quote you ascribe to Thurmond.
Strom Thurmond raped and impregnated the family's black made the same year that Fitzgerald wrote "The Great Gatsby." (Maher) Of course, you'll be glad to know he was a democrat when he committed the crime; he didn't become a Republican until 1964. lol

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”-- Lyndon B. Johnson

Lincoln himself said if he could end the war without ending slavery he would so it fits right into my racist theory!
