The Conservative Fantasy History of Civil Rights

The mainstream, and correct, history of the politics of civil rights is as follows.

Southern white supremacy operated out of the Democratic Party beginning in the nineteenth century, but the party began attracting northern liberals, including African-Americans, into an ideologically cumbersome coalition. Over time the liberals prevailed, forcing the Democratic Party to support civil rights, and driving conservative (and especially southern) whites out, where they realigned with the Republican Party.

Civil Rights Revisionism

As V.O. Key demonstrated in his classic study, Southern Politics, the most race-sensitive white southerners, centered in the Black Belt regions of the Deep South, stuck with the White Man’s Party even as other southerners defected to the GOP in 1920 (over Prohibition) and 1928 (over Prohibition and Al Smith’s Catholicism).

In 1948, these same racists heavily defected to the Dixiecrats in a protest against the national Party’s growing commitment to civil rights. They mostly returned to the Democrats after that uprising, until 1964, when they voted almost universally for Barry Goldwater, purely and simply because Goldwater had opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Four years later most of them voted for the race-centered candidacy of George Wallace, and four years after that just about every one of them voted for Richard Nixon.

These were not people attracted to the GOP, when they were, because it was “pro-civil rights,” as Williamson asserts, or because they favored that party on any other issue. It was all about race, which is why, for example, the GOP percentage of the presidential vote veered insanely in Mississippi from 25% in 1960 to 87% in 1964 to 14% in 1968 to 78% in 1972.

Near MLK Day, Historical Revision Perverts our Scope of Reality

But what conservative would be for wealth redistribution? Before President Obama uttered that phrase that sent the right into rage, Martin Luther King uttered a phrase that goes even further:“the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power.”

What conservative would surround himself with socialists? Bayard Rustin and A. Philip Randolph, whose names have all but been erased from the history books, not only organized the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963, but were two of his closest advisers; both were active socialists...

It is clear that Martin Luther King wasn’t a conservative. This statement is made not to invalidate conservatism, but instead to point out reality.

Mr. Obama is the answer. He will make a rule of law to confiscate ALL firearms and bomb-making ingredients including blackpowder, fertilizer, Molotov Cocktails, etc. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms already has the firepower, personnel and ammunition to make our inner-city streets safe for democracy. The teabaggers, bible-thumpers and conspiracy idiots will whine about it, but like the ACA it will be the fixed law of the land. Imitation replica guns and airguns with orange-tips will always be available. Government-controlled target ranges and hunting clubs won't be outlawed so the rednecks can still play with guns that will be kept on-site at those well-regulated facilities. Warmongers could still join the Civil Air Patrol or Army Nat'l Guard.
I, for one, would gladly give up some freedom and gov't granted rights for safety and security.
Then and only then will we have Freedom from Fear.

Fear is a normal innate self defense warning sign you idiot.

I couldn't help but laugh at her post myself.

I wonder how she plans to rid the world of Molotov-cocktails?
Ban all flammable liquids?
Or ban all containers that could be used to make them?

Not to mention all the other unattainable demands.
It always worries me when someone says "etc.", it's like signing over a blank check to a stranger.

Wow, your screen name is a bit presumptuous methinks. You're listing the above as examples of "government granted" rights? Really? Please explain where these "rights" originated and what document identifies them.

LMAO! I'm sure you actually believe that.

Son, you can post the titles of books that may be "APA style academic references," but if they don't support your mindless debunked revisionist history, they don't mean squat.

And even if they did support your debunked revisionist history, the articles I linked to referenced actual, legitimate, peer reviewed empirical historical research. That trumps revisionist history every time, kid.
