I'm not uninformed. I simply focused on your disingenuous assertion that the Dixiecrats are remotely similar to modern, progressive Democrats.<quoted text>

I think it's great that some Republicans stepped up against their base to do the right thing. Unfortunately, it wasn't unanimous. All the Senators and House members that were opposed to removing the flag are Republicans.
Why do you suppose only Republicans are opposed? All the Democrats supported removing the flag.
