<quoted text> And what 'argument about Republicans' was that? I argued that the Eisenhower Civil Rights Act of 1957 was so altered and watered down that it was made impossible for the Federal Government to enforce it. It became imperative for John F Kennedy to sign another Civil Rights Bill of 1960 .
But you're still distorting the facts. The person responsible for the bill being watered down beyond recognition was Democratic Senate Majority Leader, Lyndon Baines Johnson.
Again, according to your source:
"The Democratic Senate Majority Leader, Lyndon Baines Johnson from Texas, realized that the bill and its journey through Congress could tear apart his party whose southern bloc was anti-civil rights and northern members were more pro-civil rights. Southern senators occupied chairs of numerous important committees due to their long seniority. Johnson sent the bill to the judiciary committee led by Senator James Eastland from Mississippi who proceeded to change and alter the bill almost beyond recognition. Johnson sought recognition from civil rights advocates for passing the bill while also receiving recognition from the mostly southern anti-civil rights Democrats for reducing it so much as to kill it."
Just like a Democrat. Johnson was a weasel like the others who followed him in his party. Lie...cheat...steal...whatever .
