what does your cut and paste have to do with anything?
how bout we go back to your lie about no one seeing the video? recent history that has to to with the topic at hand...why do you keep lying about that history?
Seventeen people saw the video, according to the youtube counter, before Obama lied about it. Seventeen, out of 8+ billion people in the world. Those seventeen hits were most likely just the people who made the video watching themselves.
Nobody ever saw that video before Obama lied about it causing some "spontaneous demonstration" that never happened and nobody has any evidence of.

So, what evidence did the White House or State Department ever have of a "spontaneous demonstration" that never happened Obama lied about to cover up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

And, you obviously don't know enough history to contribute to this discussion. Perhaps you were sidetracked by having to answer questions about Obama lying about some spontaneous demonstration that never happened and nobody has any evidence of. I'll give to you your history lesson again. You're assignment is to add to this list of events in history.

Let's help the people here learn some history. How about we start with recent US history and the most significant event of the previous century, the Cold War. A study of one of the proxy wars of the Cold War would be most useful. A study of Korea is an example of how the US saving a country from communist slavery allows that country to become one of the super power economies of the world. How about an example of a country the US didn't save... Vietnam.
Let's start at the beginning.
The Japanese army was in Vietnam when the war ended. The Chinese monitored their removal in the northern portion of Vietnam. The Brittish monitored their removal from the southern portion of Vietnam. After the Japanese army was removed, the Brittish army left Vietnam. The Chinese didn't leave. Ho Chi Minh goes to Paris and asks the French to come back to Vietnam and force the Chinese to leave. The French return to Vietnam and bring elections with them, and the Chinese leave Vietnam.
Take it from there. Tell us what happened in Vietnam that eventually led to the US being involved.
.... got a problem there, don't you? You don't know a fucking thing about history, do you?

Strom Thurman (SC) filibustered it. You know your buddy Strom who became a Republican.
The Senate passed it with 18 Democrats voting no.
2 each from LA, NC, VA, GA, AL, AR, SC, MS 1 from WV & 1 from OR.
So yes,it was regional.
June 10, 1964, was a dramatic day in the United States Senate. For the first time in its history, cloture was invoked on a civil rights bill, ending a record-breaking filibuster by Democrats that had consumed fifty-seven working days. The hero of the hour was minority leader Senator Everett McKinley Dirksen (R-Ill.).

On June 10, 1964, Democrats filibustered the Civil Rights Act.

On this day in 1964, Everett Dirksen (R-IL), the Republican Leader in the U.S. Senate, condemned the Democrats’ 57-day filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Leading the Democrats in their opposition to civil rights for African-Americans was Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV). Byrd, who got into politics as a recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan, spoke against the bill for fourteen straight hours. Democrats still call Robert Byrd “the conscience of the Senate.”

In his speech, Senator Dirksen called on the Democrats to end their filibuster and accept racial equality.
I am always reminded of the Democrats: the party of Slavery, Secession, Segregation and the KKK… fought against equality.

And let's go back once again: you need to stop with the selective history lesson.

The truth is that Kennedy voted against the 1957 Civil rights Act while he was a senator, as did Democrat Senator Al Gore, Sr. And after he became president, Kennedy was opposed to the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. King that was organized by A. Phillip Randolph who was a black Republican. President Kennedy, through his brother Attorney General Robert Kennedy, had Dr. King wiretapped and investigated by the FBI on suspicion of being a Communist in order to undermine Dr. King.

Contrary to popular belief, Kennedy never made the call to get Dr. King out of jail. The call was made by Harris Wofford, Kennedy’s Civil Rights Advisor, who was a personal friend of the Kings. Wofford said Kennedy was angry about the call because Kennedy thought it would make him lose the Southern vote. However, the call eventually worked in Kennedy’s favor. This revelation is contained in Wofford’s book “Of Kennedys and Kings” on pages 14-23.

As for Senator Mike Mansfield, he was from Montana, one of the farthest west of all the midwestern states; so, he does not help your attempt to pit the South against the North.

Lyndon B Johnson was weak on Civil Rights, only wanting to give blacks enough incentive to keep them on the Democratic Plantation; once going so far as to say, "“These Negroes, they’re getting uppity these days. That’s a problem for us, since they got something now they never had before. The
political pull to back up their upityness. Now, we’ve got to do
something about this. We’ve got to give them a little something. Just
enough to quiet them down, but not enough to make a difference. If we
don’t move at all, their allies will line up against us. And there’ll be
no way to stop them. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

that has been proven to be bullshit..

i showed you that the Grand Mufti of Egyp saw it and told his millions of followers to protest over the video..that is the fun things abotu religious cults, they didn't even have to see it, in fact watching it would have been heresy for them. but they will protest and kill over it when their cult leaders tell them to.

and yet you still openly lie about this after i have totally proved yoru bullshit to be just that..why?

why do you always lie about everything?

<quoted text>
Yeah, sure. Do you mean with Hillary's "What difference does it make!' shriek?
What you really mean is they have been answered you your Government class Zombie satisfaction.
It was a video!
Hillary's comment was taken out of context and you know it. U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis, was a Republican a**hole on a witch hunt.

Johnson: The point I’m making is, a very simple phone call to these individuals, I think, would’ve ascertained immediately that there was no protest prior to this. This attack started at 9:40 p.m. Benghazi time and it was an assault. I appreciate the fact that you called it an assault. But I’m going back to then-Ambassador [Susan] Rice five days later going on the Sunday shows and, what I would say, is purposefully misleading the American public. Why wasn’t that known? And again, I appreciate the fact that the transparency of this hearing, but why weren’t we transparent to that point in time?

Clinton: Well, first of all, Senator, I would say that once the assault happened, and once we got our people rescued and out, our most immediate concern was, number one, taking care of their injuries. As I said, I still have a DS [Diplomatic Security] agent at Walter Reed seriously injured; getting them into Frankfurt, Ramstein to get taken care of, the FBI going over immediately to start talking to them. We did not think it was appropriate for us to talk to them before the FBI conducted their interviews. And we did not, I think this is accurate, sir (interrupted by U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis. because she was interfering with his agenda)"

Johnson: But, Madame Secretary, do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened wouldn’t have ascertained immediately that there was no protest? That was a piece of information that could have been easily, easily obtained?

Clinton: But, Senator, again—

Johnson: Within hours, if not days?

Clinton: Senator, you know, when you’re in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on, number one

Johnson: I realize that’s a good excuse.

Clinton: Well, no, it’s the fact. Number two, I would recommend highly you read both what the ARB said about it and the classified ARB because, even today, there are questions being raised. Now, we have no doubt they were terrorists, they were militants, they attacked us, they killed our people. But what was going on and why they were doing what they were doing is still unknown

Johnson: No, again, we were misled that there were supposedly protests and that something sprang out of that ... an assault sprang out of that ... and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact, and the American people could have known that within days and they didn’t know that.

Clinton: With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime."
