The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.This is an important part of my rather lengthy previous post.
The few conservatives who were split at that time based it mostly on the grounds of the pacing and methods used to push civil rights. Barry Goldwater’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was on constitutional grounds. Goldwater always supported civil rights measures before and after that time.
So which is worse? Goldwater believing civil rights should be a states' rights issue on Constitutional grounds and supporting civil rights measures - or Robert "KKK" Byrd who became a repentent career politician in the Democrat Party?
I mean, that's what I'm talking about when I say liberals can't seem to figure out which is worse.
It's the same with Nixon who advanced civil rights and affirmative action but voted for busing at a time when tensions were running high in the south.
Or the only two prominent Dixiecrats who left behind the Democrat Party to join Republicans on the issue of integration.
It's a matter of discernment and perspective.
The same two things liberals try so hard to distort.
why are you wasting our time?
