Right. That's why he thought a number of presidents -- democrat and republican alike, from WWI on -- were war criminals. He was very similar to Bill Ayers, who was militant, anti-govt, and anti-war, and felt certain presidents should be charged with war crimes.
Another failed attempt by you to slander an entire group because of the actions of one. You're a joke.

That's a good article. I think this is the passage you were referring to:
"80% of Republicans in the House and Senate voted for the bill. Less than 70% of Democrats did. Indeed, Minority Leader Republican Everett Dirksen led the fight to end the filibuster. Meanwhile, Democrats such as Richard Russell of Georgia and Strom Thurmond of South Carolina tried as hard as they could to sustain a filibuster. "
Richard Russell of Georgia and Strom Thurmond of South Carolina were both well known segregationists. They were the conservative forces of their day. They opposed civil rights legislation, and supported state's rights. When the Democratic Party passed civil rights legislation in the 1960s, the "Southern Democrats" suddenly became Republicans and voted for Richard Nixon.
"In 2005, the political scientists Nicholas Valentino and David Sears demonstrated that a Southern man holding conservative positions on issues other than race is no more likely than a conservative Northerner to vote for a Democrat. But when the relevant identifier is anti-black answers to survey questions—like whether one agrees “If blacks would only try harder they could be just as well off as whites”—white Southerners were twice as likely than white Northerners to refuse to vote Democratic. As another political scientist, Thomas Schaller, wrote in his 2006 book Whistling Past Dixie (which naturally quotes the infamous Atwater lines),“Despite the best efforts of Republican spinmeisters...the partisan impact of racial attitudes in the South is stronger today than in the past.”

Thanks again, for posting this article. Did you read it, or just pull out that one nugget? It does an excellent job of explaining the transformation of the conservative Southern Democrats into Republicans:
"Nearly 100% of Union state Democrats supported the 1964 Civil Rights Act compared to 85% of Republicans. None of the southern Republicans voted for the bill, while a small percentage of southern Democrats did.
The same pattern holds true when looking at ideology instead of party affiliation. The folks over at Voteview.com , who created DW-nominate scores to measure the ideology of congressmen and senators, found that the more liberal a congressman or senator was the more likely he would vote for the Civil Rights Act of 1964, once one controlled for a factor closely linked to geography.
That's why Strom Thurmond left the Democratic party soon after the Civil Right Act passed. He recognized that of the two parties, it was the Republican party that was more hospitable to his message. The Republican candidate for president in 1964, Barry Goldwater, was one of the few non-Confederate state senators to vote against the bill. He carried his home state of Arizona and swept the deep southern states – a first for a Republican ever.
Now, it wasn't that the Civil Rights Act was what turned the South against the Democrats or minorities against Republicans. Those patterns, as Trende showed, had been developing for a while. It was, however, a manifestation of these growing coalitions. The South gradually became home to the conservative party, while the north became home to the liberal party.
Today, the transformation is nearly complete. President Obama carried only 18% of former Confederate states, while taking 62% of non-Confederate states in 2012. Only 27% of southern senators are Democrats, while 62% of Union state senators are Democrats. And 29% of southern members in the House are Democrats compared to 54% in states or territories that were part of the Union."

LBJ's own Liberal Democrats were the against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and it was the Republicans that got it passed and there is no way Southern Democrats changed their affiliation to Republican.

The Democratic Party's Long History of Racism
Ethel C. Fenig
A few examples:
It was Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Democrat, who founded the Ku Klux Klan.
Woodrow Wilson segregated Federal Buildings and jobs after 50 years of integration under largely Republican administrations.
It was the Democrat Party in the South that instituted Jim Crow Laws.
It was the Democrat Party in the South that instituted "separate but equal".
It was the Democrat Party in the South that supported the Ku Klux Klan.
It was George Wallace and the Democrat Party in the South that said "Segregation Forever".
It was Orval Faubus and the Democrat Party that wanted the Arkansas National Guard to enforce segregation, and Dwight Eisenhower, a Republican President, that sent the 101st Airborne to integrate the schools.
It was Bull Connor, a member of the Democrat National Committee, who turned the hoses on the marchers in Birmingham, and it was the Republicans who made up the majority that passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, over the filibuster of such Democrat paragons as William Fulbright and Al Gore Sr.- and Grand Kleagle Byrd.
(And no, the Dixiecrats didn't join the Republican Party - most of them remained Democrats.)
It was the Democrats who kept Grand Kleagle Byrd in the party.
It was Democrats who called General Colin Powell a "house N-word".
It was Democrats who called Condi Rice - who grew up with and knew the little girls in Birmingham who were blown up, by Democrats - an "Aunt Jemima" and ran cartoons of her with fat lips doing Hattie McDaniel riffs.
It was Democrats, or at least Obama supporters, who called Stacy Dash a hundred different racist names for daring to leave the Democrat plantaion.(sic) It's the Democrats who hold annual dinners honoring Andrew Jackson, who owned slaves and who orchestrated the Removal, the Trail of Tears, the near genocide of several of the Indian Nations.
Lyndon Johnson, The N Word, and the Concept of the Democrat Plantation
“These N?groes, 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.”—LBJ

I bet there have never been a Christian Republican that got an abortion...except for my cousin. Also, with that whole right to murder thing, you might want to take that up with the Supreme Court. Good thing when "God's President" Bush was in office, and the GOP had the majority in the Supreme Court, they did away with the abortion that is never mentioned in the Bible...right? Read a neat article where they found the skeletons of hundreds of fetuses in the sewers of Jerusalem from the time Jesus supposedly was around. Wonder why he made no mention of hookers tossing their babies in the sewers as being wrong? Just like how he witnessed hundreds if not thousands of crucifixions in his life and had to walk down a road lined with people crucified for stirring up things in the city...followed by him entering the city and immediately stirring things up. Suicide by cop, I think the term is called these days. You can save your whole "not a real Christian" gig you guys always run to when one of you gets caught. There is no magic switch on people who dedicated their lives to being Christian, that suddenly makes them "not Christian" when they are exposed as being monstrosities. I think my examples of Christians doing vile and murderous acts in the face of your evil prairie dog story about sums it up. VOID.
#25746 Feb 19, 2014
You are a nutball and nobody is trying to hide some great atheist conspiracy. Take me for example. I, like the founders of this nation, am a Deist.(Also see no sign of Jesus anywhere in sight) Christians hi-jacked this nation and are trying to twist the intentions of our nation's founders to match their Dominionist agenda. Luckily, their corporate oil sponsors throwing money hand over fist against Obama, wasn't enough to stifle the true will of the American people.
#25747 Feb 19, 2014
Oh lil' poochie. You must have missed these obvious quotes from your Conservative hero. You know, the ones you hear Tea Party members spewing all the time...
"The government is afraid of the guns people have because they have to have control of the people at all times. Once you take away the guns, you can do anything to the people. You give them an inch and they take a mile. I believe we are slowly turning into a socialist government. The government is continually growing bigger and more powerful and the people need to prepare to defend themselves against government control" -Timothy McVeigh
#25748 Feb 19, 2014
Timmy McTea Baggers is quite the Constitutionalist. Funny because I have heard others claim they are the same. Oh that's right. Those Tea Party guys...
Those who betray or subvert the Constitution are guilty of sedition and/or treason, are domestic enemies and should and will be punished accordingly.
It also stands to reason that anyone who sympathizes with the enemy or gives aid or comfort to said enemy is likewise guilty. I have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic and I will. And I will because not only did I swear to, but I believe in what it stands for in every bit of my heart, soul and being. I know in my heart that I am right in my struggle. I have come to peace with myself, my God and my cause. Blood will flow in the streets. Good vs. Evil. Free Men vs. Socialist Wannabe Slaves.

"Taxes are a joke. Regardless of what a political candidate "promises," they will increase. More taxes are always the answer to government mismanagement. They mess up. We suffer. Taxes are reaching cataclysmic levels, with no slowdown in sight.[...] Is a Civil War Imminent? Do we have to shed blood to reform the current system? I hope it doesn't come to that. But it might." -Timothy McVeigh
#25750 Feb 19, 2014
"I hope that's not where we're going, but you know if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies and saying my goodness what can we do to turn this country around? I'll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out."
Ooops. That one wasn't from Timmy McVeigh. That was Sharron Angle from the Tea Party.
THIS is Timmy McVeigh...
"Do we have to shed blood to reform the current system? I hope it doesn't come to that. But it might." -Timothy McVeigh
#25751 Feb 19, 2014
So basically other than sharing the EXACT same views, and I'm talking to the letter, with the Tea Party on the government, taxes, gun control, socialism and the Constitution, I failed at showing his views read like a step by step play book for the Tea Party. Except for the fact that I clearly showed he is the poster child for the Tea Party, you really showed me up on that one...VOID. Enjoy your" high moral ground" and never mind the FACT that you guys are walking in the footsteps of a child murdering terrorist.
#25752 Feb 19, 2014
"There is no doubt that Timothy McVeigh was deeply influenced by the Christian Identity movement. Christian Identity is a profoundly racist and theocratic form of faith that developed in the late 1970s and spread like wildfire through rural communities throughout the U.S. in the 1980s."
Boy, he seems more like a "Liberal" with every post...Ahhh ha ha ha ha ha! VOID
#25754 Feb 19, 2014
I walk in the footsteps of the founders. You walk in the footsteps of the Hitler youth, thinking that your Der Leader actually gives a crap about you.
Your morality is whatever you happen to think is right on any given day, because you're just a glorified monkey.
#25755 Feb 19, 2014
You're the only liberal I've come across that would support incestuous, polygamous, and human-animal marriages. Usually when those unions are mentioned, libs bristle with the same judgmental attitudes they accuse their opponents of having.
#25756 Feb 19, 2014
Let's see, when Bush left office we were losing 800,000 jobs a month, the Dow was below 7,000, the housing market, auto industry and banking industry were in the toilet.
He had managed to take a $500 billion budget surplus, that he inherited and turn it into a $1.4 trillion deficit. We were in 2 costly wars, one of which was based on false intelligence and costing us trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.
We were $10.6 trillion in debt and Osama Bin Laden was still walking around.
It took 8 years to trash this country and you idiots cry that wasn't totally fixed in 6 months. And the blocking, impeding, obstructing and childish filibusters are still going on almost 6 years later.
#25757 Feb 19, 2014
And just where in that statement was mentioned human-animal marriage? At least animals have more brains than you're sick mind. Even a chicken that has a brain smaller than a pea still has sense enough to get out the rain.
#25758 Feb 19, 2014
This only makes the second or third time you've showed pure laziness or denial of the facts of sleazy GOP caging of voters. Here you go again you worthless denier:
When you do the back breaking job of typing into google," voter caging", PRESTO, pages and articles full showing another election stealing-suppression tactic of the honorable sleazebag GOP party.
Educate yourself cause Rushypoo and Fuxed Up Liars News never touch on this subject
Civil liberties Union, Brennan Center, PBS and many non-liars have articles that will gladly show you a truthful article.
Good luck at cnsnews or WND for anything with the truth.
#25759 Feb 19, 2014
Sorry. The founders of this nation were mostly Deists. Jefferson went as far as to physically cut out all of the zany, bogus magic tricks Jesus did in the Bible. Like I said, thank "god" you guys are fading in the rear view mirror of this great nation. Not that re-writing history to indoctrinate children into your kookie all white Mayberry oil cult for Jesus party through children's books like what proven liar, Rush Limbaugh did isn't conniving and typical right wing tactics. I have posted on here before, the 14 things all fascist regimes have in common and it nails you right wing Christian Conservatives to a tee. Every single speck of it. So goose step to that one.
So let's see. Tea Party agenda matches perfectly with child murdering terrorist and Christian white supremacist Timothy McVeigh's agenda. Tea Baggers often call the tax paying, hard working people of this nation a bunch of "commies", while declaring Vladimir Putin a Conservative hero due to his Christian Conservative views on gays. Right wing Christian Conservatives' agenda matches up perfectly with a study showing 14 things all fascist regimes have in common....yep. The facts are all right there. Those Jesus loving Tea Bagger patriots really are obviously the poster children for all things moral and American. VOID with just a dash of treason. That's you.
