Why?Quoting the title of the book written by Robert F Williams?First published in 1962, "Negroes with Guns" is the story of a southern black community's struggle to arm itself in self-defense against the Ku Klux Klan and other racist groups. Frustrated and angered by violence condoned or abetted by the local authorities against blacks, the small community of Monroe, North Carolina, brought the issue of armed self-defense to the forefront of the civil rights movement. The single most important intellectual influence on Huey P. Newton, the founder of the Black Panther Party, "Negroes with Guns" is a classic story of a man who risked his life for democracy and freedom.I understand why you democrats miss the issue. You've basically rewritten most of history from 1980 and back.

Glad to see you aren't biting on this one. These people are just plain not in touch with reality. Don't most hardcore outspoken racists come from red states? South Carolina, Mississippi. Baffling really. Jon Stewart should run a democrat's campaign and just use the rights double talk and bs against them. Sadly, most of the left talk out of their ass ass well

Yeah, the OP calls it genius spin, and while I think it is entertaining spin, I wouldn't call it genius. I'd call it grossly misleading. in mid 60's the racist white wing of the southern democratic party left the party en masse because of the passing of the Civil Rights Act, which was the final stake in the heart of blacks being republicans in any substantive numbers ( the shift toward the party began in the north with the FDR New Deal alliance, and was finalized in the 60's). I would guess that there would be less than 1% of the current KKK that are registered democrats ( or any white nationalist group, really)I wish people would stop treating Ann as a pundant and treat her like the comedian that she is. She's a funny troll but people take her too seriously as a legitimate commentator, both on the right and left. There's no reason anyone should be reporting on jokes a comedian tells.

You, you're good McGee. I've taken quite a shine to you lately. You've got your shit together. I mean, if blacks started arming en masse, legally, republicans would change the gun laws instantly. I remember them shitting the bed when Obama was putting together his secret army. Ridic

I think you're wrong about that, Ron. The NRA/gun toting right is against all gun laws, even the ones that prohibit them from felons or prohibit hand guns in cities ( two big african american demographics). I think they just assume all negros have guns illegally, and that's part of the reason they want to be packing.

I suppose. I just equated it to the redisttricting that happens when it becomes tough to win elections, the voting districts get reset. And no brv, I believe any non felon can get a gun easily, white or black. Hell, I notarized 4 concealed carry permits last week at the bank. That makes me nervous.

got it, explains the problem
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

Ever look at the democrat leaders who were fighting the Civil Rights Act?Democrat Senators organized the record Senate filibuster of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Included among the organizers were several prominent and well known liberal Democrat standard bearers including: - Robert Byrd, senator from West Virginia till 2008 - J. William Fulbright, Arkansas senator and political mentor of Bill Clinton - Albert Gore Sr., Tennessee senator, father and political mentor of Al Gore. Gore Jr. has been known to lie about his father's opposition to the Civil Rights Act. - Sam Ervin, North Carolina senator of Watergate hearings fame - Richard Russell, famed Georgia senator and later President Pro TemporeNot exactly a list of people who joined the republican party...You can pretend that democrats 'changed' but the truth is they didn't. They just switched from outspoken racists, to 'let's help those poor people who can't take care of themselves because they are animals', kind of racists.Algore came up with Midnight Basketball to keep poor blacks busy so they wouldn't commit crimes.You think you guys would have given Bush a pass on that?Nope, the democrats in this country have done more harm to blacks in this country than the Klu Klux Klan ever could hope. I guess the '24 Democrat convention was their brain storming venue...

And the notion that the racists that made up the majority of the democrat party left the democrats and joined the republicans falls in the face of reality:

Quote

Democrat opposition to the Civil Rights Act was substantial enough to literally split the party in two. A whopping 40% of the House Democrats VOTED AGAINST the Civil Rights Act, while 80% of Republicans SUPPORTED it. Republican support in the Senate was even higher. Similar trends occurred with the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which was supported by 82% of House Republicans and 94% of Senate Republicans. The same Democrat standard bearers took their normal racists stances, this time with Senator Fulbright leading the opposition effort.It took the hard work of Republican Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen and Republican Whip Thomas Kuchel to pass the Civil Rights Act (Dirksen was presented a civil rights accomplishment award for the year by the head of the NAACP in recognition of his efforts). Upon breaking the Democrat filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Republican Dirksen took to the Senate floor and exclaimed "The time has come for equality of opportunity in sharing in government, in education, and in employment. It will not be stayed or denied. It is here!" (Full text of speech). Sadly, Democrats and revisionist historians have all but forgotten (and intentionally so) that it was Republican Dirksen, not the divided Democrats, who made the Civil Rights Act a reality. Dirksen also broke the Democrat filibuster of the 1957 Civil Rights Act that was signed by Republican President Eisenhower.
Please explain using actual history and not democrat spin revisionism why a KKK member would leave the party that fought the hardest to stop the Civil Rights Act and join the party that did the most to pass it....?
