Alan GraysonAlan Grayson attempted to tie the Tea Party to the KKK recently, so I decided to set the record straight.

As I said on MSNBC a while back:

“I’ve been to over 100 Tea Party rallies, and I’ve never seen a black man hung at one, but I KNOW that the KKK hung black people.”

    Thank you Kevin for inserting some sanity into this discussion! Keep the faith, keep the fire!

  • Tinkabell

    Kevin, you are so much fun to listen to and watch…logic, truth and honesty…wow what a concept…something Liberals are sorely lacking. Keep up the good work.

  • dennybara

    Thanks Kevin, you’re making a difference.

  • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

    When Liberals open their mouth they do not use REAL FACTS….At best they use their Liberal Propaganda as facts…but it is not the Truth….so they must invent more Propaganda to cover their SORRY A$$ES and they just keep reapeating and repeating the same old Liberal BS over and over….Digging a deeper Hole….what we need to do it to throw the Dirt over the Hole and Bury them…

  • drew

    You speak of history? I say look up the southern strategy but it would be dismissed as liberal distortion of history.

    • Benjamin David

      The Southern Strategy was a bad idea implemented by Nixon of all people as an answer to the disenfranchisement of blacks (in other words making it harder or impossible for them to vote) by Democrats.

  • Scott Jackson

    Kevin my friend. You are the man. Level headed man with a common sense approach you are.

  • TMG

    Love this. You have given me one more true patriot that I can follow.

  • Basher04

    That was awesome, I love hearing a strong intelligent person go on a Liberal talk show host and completely dismantle everything they say.

  • Carolyn VanZorge

    good for you, kevin! the race baiting done by the dems and the msm are disgusting, and i am glad that you are calling them on it. our country is facing many problems and we will never be able to move forward as long as the dems and the msm keep trying to distract people from the real issues

  • mackelby

    Liberals have these conservatives on and they embarrass them on their own show. PRICELESS. David, what was it like to have your ass handed to you on your own show.

  • Matthew Rutledge

    This is so retarded. He is trying to make Republicans and the Tea Party is violent and racist. Again, when liberals realize that they cannot change you or you are not aligning with their point of view they call you raciest, bigot, uneducated etc. The majority of Democrat’s Southern Democrats were very racist and most apart of the KKK. The movie Lincoln depicts this very well. MSNBC is a horrible News Agency and is helping in the demise of this great country. Vote Republican. This no accountability, non leadership administration, and socialist party needs to be defeated in this up coming elections. #NBChatecrimes #NBCracehate #noblama

    • BRobCleveland

      The problem in the 60s was not “the Republicans” or “the Democrats.” The problem was “the conservatives” of both parties supported maintaining Jim Crow, and the moderates and liberals of BOTH PARTIES opposed that. Just because you now control the GOP does not mean today’s conservative movement gets no credit for what liberal Republicans did in the 1960s!

      There were ZERO conservatives out there marching with King and risking their lives for democracy for all people, regardless of color. And all the photoshopped pictures in the world will not change that fact.

      • DoggyDaddy

        Your statements sounds bogus. Show us your resources that prove it.

      • Matthew Rutledge

        You need to go look at the Reconstruction area. Actually start with Dwight Eisenhower (Who was a Republican) that set the way for the Civil Rights Movement and the Supreme Court he assembled before congress who passed a very important piece of legislation, ‘Brown vs. Board of Education’, handed down on May 17, 1954, the warrens court unanimous (9–0) decision stated that “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.” As a result, racial segregation was ruled a violation of the Equal Protect Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. This ruling paved the way for integration and was a major victory of the civil rights movement.

        In ten states, coalitions of freedmen, recent black and white arrivals from the North (carpetbaggers), and white Southerners who supported Reconstruction (scalawags) cooperated to form Republican biracial state governments. They introduced various reconstruction programs including: funding public schools, establishing charitable institutions, raising taxes, and offering massive aid to support improved railroad transportation and shipping. Conservative opponents called the Republican regimes corrupt and instigated violence toward freedmen and whites who supported Reconstruction. Much of the violence was carried out by members of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), a secret vigilante organization; this led to federal intervention by President Ulysses S. Grant in 1871 that suppressed the Klan. White Democrats, calling themselves “Redeemers”, regained control state by state, sometimes using fraud and violence to control state elections. A deep national economic depression following the Panic of 1873 led to major Democratic gains in the North, the collapse of many railroad schemes in the South, and a growing sense of frustration in the North.

        The end of Reconstruction was a staggered process, and the period of Republican control ended at different times in different states. With the Compromise of 1877, Army intervention in the South ceased and Republican control collapsed in the last three state governments in the South. This was followed by a period that white Southerners labeled Redemption, in which white-dominated state legislatures enacted Jim Crow laws and after 1890 disenfranchised most blacks and many poor whites through a combination of constitutional amendments and electoral laws. The white Democrat Southerners’ memory of Reconstruction played a major role in imposing the system of white supremacy and second-class citizenship for blacks, known as the age of Jim Crow.

        • Matthew Rutledge

          In laymen’s terms; The white Democrat Southerners labeled the fall of the Republican party in tern the cease of the Army intervention in protecting the Freedmen’s rights as free men “Redemption”. Jim Crow laws derive from White Moderate and Radical Democrats from the south.

        • BRobCleveland

          You are, again, talking about party label. I am not. CONSERVATIVE simply did not support the civil rights movement. Period. The documentary record, the rationales, they are all a matter of historical record. Whether it was Rhenquist, Bob Bork, or Bill Buckley, your side gave intellectual support (even EXPLICIT support in the case of Buckley) to maintaining a system of second class citizenship for Blacks people. Indeed, you cannot name A SINGLE conservative who held otherwise!

          Nope, King was a Communist, you all said, and no one had the right to “force” equal treatment for minorities as well as White people. If conservatives had had their way Blacks in the South STILL would not be permitted to vote.

          • Matthew Rutledge

            Conservatives? There was not a battle with a bi-party and “conservatives”. The Conservatives of today are not the same as the Conservatives of yesterday. Traditionally Conservatives hold a point of view of equality and limited government including a free market. Through-out history during the party swap and after, the Position of Conservatives, Moderates, Libertarian, Progressives and etc. have changed. So for you to suggest that all conservatives throughout time and the focus of policy for that given time are the same as todays Conservatives, Moderates, Libertarian, and etc. no matter what there political affiliation is just crazy. You obviously haven’t applied that way of thinking the other way. The reason I keep referring to Democrats vs Republicans is because the only way to get things done in the legislative process is by each party to pass legislation and vote. No matter what their Ideology is. What History tells us is that Democrats were obviously racists and wanted no part of Integration. Republicans did, always have and still do today their record proves that with history. Conservatism is recognized in the Republican party. So to suggest that through the transformation of our Political Parties since 1870, all of the racists “Conservatives” and Democrats of the Jim Crow era. are the Conservatives of today is twisting History, Distorting the facts and painting a picture of the Republican party; Conservative, Moderate, or Tea Party as racist, bigots. History does not confirm this claim. No one care about your hatred for Conservatism and quite frankly it doesn’t even make sense. ESPECIALLY Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as Communist….!!!!!

          • Matthew Rutledge

            You really need to read his book ‘Strength to Love’.

            An excerpt from Strength to love;

            In the words of Dr. King:

            Few issues demand a more thorough and sober discussion than that presented by Communism. For at least three reasons every Christian minister should feel obligated o speak to his people on this controversial theme.

            The first reason recognizes that the widespread influence of Communism has, like a mighty tidal wave, spread through Russia, China, Eastern Europe, and now even to our hemisphere. Nearly a thousand million of the peoples of the world believe in its teachings, many of them embracing it as a new religion to which they have surrendered completely. Such a force cannot be ignored.

            A second reason is that Communism is the only serious rival to Christianity. Such great world religions as Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Mohammedanism are possible alternatives to Christianity, but no one conversant with the hard facts of the modern world will deny that Communism is Christianity’s most formidable rival.

            A third reason is that it is unfair and certainly unscientific to condemn a system before we know what that system teaches and why it is wrong.

            Let me state clearly the basic premise of this sermon; Communism and Christianity are fundamentally incompatible. A true Christian cannot be a true Communist, for the two philosophies are antithetical and all the dialectics of the logicians cannot reconcile them. Why is this true?

            First, Communism is based on a materialistic and humanistic view of life and history. According to Communist theory, matter, not mind and spirit, speaks the last word in the universe. Such a philosophy is avowedly secularistic and atheistic. Under it, God is merely a figment of the imagination, religion is a product of fear and ignorance, and the church is an invention of the rulers to control the masses. Moreover, Communism, like humanism, thrives on the grand illusion that man, unaided by any divine power, can save himself and usher in a new society—

            I fight alone, and win or sink,

            Need no one to make me free

            I want no Jesus Christ to think,

            That He could ever die for me.

            Cold atheism wrapped in garments of materialism, Communism provides no place for God or Christ .

            At the center of the Christian faith is the affirmation that there is a God in the universe who is the ground and essence of all reality. A Being of infinite love and boundless power, God is creator, sustainer, and conserver of values. In opposition to Communism’s atheistic materialism, Christianity posits a theistic idealism. Reality cannot be explained by matter in motion or the push and pull of economic forces. Christianity affirms hat at the heart of reality is a Heart, a loving Father who works through history for the slavation of his children. Man cannot save himself, for man is not the measure of all things and humanity is not God. Bound by the chains of his own sin and finiteness, man needs a savior.

            Second, Communism is based on ethical relativism and accepts no stable moral absolutes. Right and wrong are relative to the most expedient methods for dealing with class war. Communism exploits the dreadful philosophy that the end justifies the means. It enunciates movingly the theory of a classless society, but alas! Its methods for achieving this noble end are all too often ignoble. Lying, violence, murder, and torture are considered justifiable means to achieve the millennial end. Is this an unfair indictment? Listen to the words of Lenin, the real tactician of Communist theory: “We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, lawbreaking, withholding and concealing truth.” Modern history has known many tortuous nights and horror-filled days because his followers have taken this statement seriously.

            In contrast to the ethical relativism of Communism, Christianity sets forth a system of absolute moral values and affirms that God has placed within the very structure of this universe certain moral principles that are fixed and immutable. The law of love as an imperative is the norm for all of man’s actions. Furthermore, Christianity at its best refuses to live by a philosophy of ends justifying means. Destructive means cannot bring constructive ends, because the means represent the ideal-in-the-making and the end-in-progress. Immoral means cannot bring moral ends, for the ends are preexistent in the means.

            Third, Communism attributes ultimate value to the state. Man is made for the state and not the state for man. One may object, saying that in Communist theory the stat is an “interim reality,” which will “wither away” when the classless society emerges. True—in theory; but it is also true that, while it lasts, the state is the end. Man is a means to that end. Man has no inalienable rights. His only rights are derived from, and conferred by, the state. Under such a system, the fountain of freedom runs dry. Restricted are man’s liberties of press and assembly, his freedom to vote, and his freedom to listen and to read. Art, religion, education, music, and science come under the gripping yoke of governmental control. Man must be a dutiful servant to the omnipotent state.

            All of this is contrary not only to the Christian doctrine of God but also to the Christian estimate of man. Christianity insists that man is an end because he is a child of God, made in God’s image. Man is more than a producing animal guided by economic forces; his is a being of spirit, crowned with glory and honor, endowed with the gift of freedom. The ultimate weakness of Communism is that it robs man of that quality that makes him man. Man, says Paul Tillich, is man because he is free. This freedom is expressed through man’s capacity to deliberate, decide, and respond. Under Communism, the individual soul is shackled by the chains of conformity; his spirit is bound by the manacles of party allegiance. He is stripped of both conscience and reason. Te trouble with Communism is that it has neither a theology nor a Christology. Confused about God, it is also confused about man. In spite of its glowing talk about the welfare of the masses, Communism’s methods and philosophy strip man of his dignity and worth, leaving him as little more than a depersonalized cog in the ever-turning wheel of the state.

            Clearly, then, all of this is out of harmony with the Christian view of things. We must not fool ourselves. These systems of thought are too contradictory to be reconciled; they represent diametrically opposed ways of looking at the world and of transforming it. We should as Christians pray for the Communist, but never can we, as true Christians, tolerate the philosophy of Communism.

            Yet, something in the spirit and threat of Communism challenges us. The late Archbishop of Canterbury, William Temple, referred to Communism as a Christian heresy. He meant that Communism had laid hold on certain truths that are essential parts of the Christian view of things, although bound to them are theories and practices that no Christian could ever accept.

            The theory, though surely not the practice, of Communism challenges us to be more concerned about social justice. With all of its false assumptions and evil methods, Communism arose as a protest against the injustice and indignities inflicted upon the underprivileged. The Communist Manifesto was written by men aflame with a passion for social justice. Karl Marx, born of Jewish parents who both came from rabbinic stock, and trained, as he must have been, in the Hebrew Scriptures, could never forget the words of Amos: “Let judgment roll down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.” Marx’s parents adopted Christianity when he was a child of six, thus adding to the Old Testament heritage that of the New. In spite of his later atheism and anti-ecclesiasticism, Marx could not quite forget Jesus’ concern for the “least of these.” In his writings, he champions the cause of the poor, the exploited, and the disinherited.

            Communism in theory emphasizes a classless society. Although the world knows from sad experience that Communism has created new classes and lexicon of injustice, in its theoretical formulation it envisages a world society transcending the superficialities of race and color, class and caste. Membership in the Communist party theoretically s not determined by the color of a man’s skin or the quality of blood in his veins.

            Christians are bound to recognize any passionate concern for social justice. Such concern is basic in the Christian doctrine of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. The Gospels abound with expressions of concern for the welfare of the poor. Listen to the words of the Magnificat: “He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.” No doctrinaire Communist ever expressed a passion for the poor and oppressed such as we find in the Manifesto of Jesus, which affirms: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

            Christians are also bound to recognize the ideal of a world unity in which all barriers of cast and color are abolished. Christianity repudiates racism. The broad universalism standing at the center of the gospel makes both the theory and practice of racial injustice morally unjustifiable. Racial prejudice is a blatant denial of the unity that we have in Christ, for Christ there is neither Jew nor Gentile, bond nor free, Negro nor white.

            In spite of the noble affirmations of Christianity, the church has often lagged in its concern for social justice and too often has been content to mouth pious irrelevances and sanctimonious trivialities. It has often been so absorbed in future good “over yonder” that it forgets the present evils “down here.” Yet the church is challenged to make the gospel of Jesus Christ relevant within the social situation. We must come to see that the Christian gospel is a two-way road. ON the one side, it seeks to change the souls of men and thereby unite them with God; on the other, it seeks to change the environmental conditions of men so that the soul will have a chance after it is changed. Any religion that professes t be concerned with the souls of men and yet is not concerned with the economic and social conditions that strangle them and the social conditions that cripple them is the kind the Marxist describes as “an opiate of the people.” –end of excerpt

            For the rest of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on this subject and more, I recommend his book, Strength to Love.

          • Matthew Rutledge

            Do you think that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was of Christian faith? Was he or was he not a Preacher for the people? Yeah that’s what I thought. I do hope you read.

      • Matthew Rutledge

        There were conservatives that marched and died for the Civil Rights, In fact, Martin Luther King was a Republican Conservative and lobbied and toured with White and Black Conservative groups. Again you are a sad sad Liberal that knows not what he speaks.

        And what is wrong with that ? He is a man who thinks for himself, not like people that allow this Administration brainwash them with their lies so people like you will believe them, vote for them & go out there & spread the Propaganda as you are doing !

        • spencer1952

          Squeak, he is an Oreo, he is black on the outside and white on the inside. This is why you people are so fascinated with him he is exactly the kind of Negro you people want all black people to be like, but that’s not going to happen because most blacks have too much pride then to kowtow to hateful bigots. And as long as I have access to the Internet I am free to visit whatever damn website I decide to visit and if you don’t like it simply overlook what I post.

      • Mason

        Spencer1952 – I did not mention that he ‘Only’ represented blacks … I mentioned that he was a great representative not only “for the black and human race.” I was only inferring the ‘Man’ had good common sense, and wasn’t falling down on the ‘Black’ thing, but representing a ‘Race’ of people who are ‘Like Minded’ — who cares if they’re black or white … as long as they are persons of good conscious and common sense? I wouldn’t think Mr. Jackson was a representative of any race, except the Human race. And, why would someone disapprove of a positive comment … when it’s clear that my comments were strictly benign? As long as a person exhibits the moral decency of human being rather than being a ‘Blight’ on the Social landscape by taking advantage of others … I would rather they be my neighbor than what I’ve seen displayed by those recently in the news.

        • spencer1952

          I know Mason, you’re use the old standard remark “He’s a credit to his race” and “Why can’t more blacks be like Kevin Jackson” I’ve got it.

          • Mason

            Spencer, I would have done the same thing if any one … of any race, creed or religion stepped up to ‘Do the Right Thing’ – but, why fault anyone who steps up to pat ‘them’ on the back? The problem I see in this world currently is that, people are so willing to ‘Judge’ another over the slightest comment or action … that it almost becomes combative just to live in the world surrounding each one of us. I am certain that you know as I … there are good and bad sides to any ‘Coin’ — which is very scientific in nature … if not spiritually when you think about it. So, we are all walking that ‘Thin line’ in LIFE … anyway … like it or not.

          • spencer1952

            This a dog eat dog world Mason, and a mean world too.

          • Mason

            Spencer1952 – Absolutely! And one reason people have to realize which ‘Pack’ you’re running in, or which one you want to stay clear of … so to speak. I believe that sometimes, it may not be a bad idea to reduce it to that level. I have been returning to the same 5 + pieces of literature (yes, there are more but, primarily) over the years since the mid eighties and nineties … and coming to a finer conclusion of LIFE that’s been around for centuries. It’s only those who wish to understand the past, who are always discovering an easier way of understanding the realities in the future, that: “It is a dog eat dog world” my man! And if we can begin to understand it from that point of view … it may in fact be easier to ‘Get Along.” I know: that is what I saw in Kevin Jackson. Have a great rest of the weekend.

          • Mason

    Well done keeping your composure; the Democratic / Liberal Mo is to scream over the other person so they don’t get to make a point. I wish more people would see that.

  • spencer1952

    “I’ve never seen any blacks lynched at a tea party rally” you idiot Uncle Tom, the reason you haven’t seen this is because those tea party bigots would get their red asses brought back to them if they did.

      Ostrich. Keep believing the “racist” BS……….Taxed Enough Already…….we don’t lynch like Sen. Byrd as his side did

      • spencer1952

        Jimmy, do your research, the ol’ Dixiecrats of the 50′s & 60′s are actually the Republican/Tea party of today. They abandoned the Democratic party in 1964 after LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act in protest of him doing so. However, Byrd did stay I will concede.

          I’m waiting for you to post some links that prove your statements. I bet you are reading from those left wing hate sites. Am I right?

          • spencer1952

            No, actually I teach history and even lived it you can say, I do not have to consult any of those old ” left wing hate sites” you speak of. Which ones might they be if I may ask, would ‘stormfront’ be considered one? No, that belongs to you people doesn’t it?

          • DoggyDaddy

            Isn’t that just like Socialist Democrats, can’t back up what they say… and he says he is a history teacher & can not answer on his own knowledge of history, sounds like he needs more education, but then again we have a lot of liberal teachers & professors that do not teach the kids today HISTORY, just teach them about liberal beliefs, Muslim religion, sex, Gay life style, etc., far out education, everything, but, what America is truly made of, the Constitution ! Very Sad !

          • Matthew Rutledge

            And Now The Rest Of The Story!!!!!!
            Dear Robby Boy;
            There were two versions of the Civil Rights Act. The Original from the House witch had more restrictions on private business and Civil Rights and One from the Senate that was weak on hold private businesses accountable for Civil Rights violations. What you need to focus at is the percentage’s….and notice the shift in the Democratic vote from the Strong House bill compared to the weaker Senate bill. Now why did the Democrats not want the government to have hold of private business in regards to Civil Rights??? Hmmmmm……. The Republicans were consistent in their vote.

            Totals are in “Yea–Nay” format:

            The original House version: 290–130 (69–31%).

            Cloture in the Senate: 71–29 (71–29%).

            The Senate version: 73–27 (73–27%).

            The Senate version, as voted on by the House: 289–126 (70–30%).

            By party[edit]

            The original House version:[17]

            Democratic Party: 152–96 (61–39%)

            Republican Party: 138–34 (80–20%)

            Cloture in the Senate:[18]

            Democratic Party: 44–23 (66–34%)

            Republican Party: 27–6 (82–18%)

            The Senate version:[17]

            Democratic Party: 46–21 (69–31%)

            Republican Party: 27–6 (82–18%)

            The Senate version, voted on by the House:[17]

            Democratic Party: 153–91 (63–37%)

            Republican Party: 136–35 (80–20%)

            By party and region[edit]

            Note: “Southern”, as used in this section, refers to members of Congress from the eleven states that made up the Confederate States of America in the American Civil War. “Northern” refers to members from the other 39 states, regardless of the geographic location of those states.

            The original House version:

            Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7–93%)

            Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0–100%)

            Northern Democrats: 145–9 (94–6%)

            Northern Republicans: 138–24 (85–15%)

            The Senate version:

            Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5–95%) (only Ralph Yarborough of Texas voted in favor)

            Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0–100%) (John Tower of Texas)

            Northern Democrats: 45–1 (98–2%) (only Robert Byrd of West Virginia voted against)

            Northern Republicans: 27–5 (84–16%)

            So here you can see How badly Southern Dixicrats hated the Civil Rights Bill……. And you can see how Bob try’s to distort his argument my not showing the rest of the story….. Democrats largely ran the south and the hatred for Blacks.

          • jim
          • BRobCleveland

            The people who opposed the civil rights acts were CONSERVATIVES. Liberals and moderates of both parties supported the bills.

            This is not rocket science . . . .

        • Carol

          Here is what I don’t get….didn’t MLK die over trying to make everyone equal. Yet all the Dems and libs want is segregation…what happened to us all being PEOPLE. Damn. I am tired of this separatist mentality. MLK had a dream that has turned into a nightmare….and you can thank the Democrats for that. The blacks keep voting for them and over the past, oh let’s say 30 years…as a whole , are blacks better off? I would say not. Keep dreaming your own dream and thanks for making MLK’s dream dead in it’s tracks.

    • DoggyDaddy

      Oh, you sound like one of those hate mongering violent little lefties. You know you are wrong, that is why you are so angry.

      • spencer1952

        Where do you live Doggy? In Bizarro World? It is the Tea Party who holds the mantle of hate mongering and nullification. Angry? No, but I do have a low intolerance for stupidity.

      • BRobCleveland

        Yes, the left does hate and is intolerant. It hates racism and is intolerant of racists.

        The right does not hate racism so much, and tolerates racists. It is why the right wing politicians cannot even bother to do something as simple as call the Confederate flag the inhumane abomination and celebration of racism, stupidity and treason that it is.

        In contrast, you would have lefties fist fighting to see who would get to urinate on that banner to stupidity, while a bunch of moderate Dems pour lighter fluid on it and torch it.

        • Matthew Rutledge

          Maybe you are a Republican and you just don’t know it. You have facts flip flopped. go to #nbcracehate on twitter and scroll down. You will find MANY examples of how the left is racist. Quoted and referenced. Go ahead. But you again will probably hear and see what you want.

  • Nancy Pryor

    MSNBC is a government propaganda agency not a news agency that balances their coverage of events.

  • BRobCleveland

    They were not “Southern Democrats”; they were CONSERVATIVES. And the guys standing next to them at the cross burning may have been Southern Republicans. But they were all CONSERVATIVES.

    Conservatives nowadays ALWAYS try to conflate party with ideology, But do not try to change the subject — the Conservative movement OPPOSED the civil rights movement, and opposed MLK, even in his death.

    The civil rights marchers were Republicans and Democrats, but there were zero conservatives out there. And why? Well, the conservatives called King a Communist and a criminal, and they supported the use of violence and discriminatory application of law to quell this “Communist inspired” rebellion.

    The cons today try to glide by these facts because they are embarrassing. Yes, it is embarrassing that you guys would have been pouring ketchup on the men, and arresting the woman in my profile photo (arrested in 1961 for integrating a lunch counter in Jackson, MS). You cons would not have been sitting there with her protesting racism.

    Well, sorry, but facts are facts, and history is indelible. Conservatives NEVER opposed Jim Crow. Never. From Goldwater on down, they supported the Bull Connors of the world, not the MLKs.

    The conservatives were with the cops beating people on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, not with the the protesters. And when you have a Republican party leader gin a battleground state get on television and say incredibly racist things this week, the 50 year old sins of conservative Dems is hardly germane as to which party has a problem with racists today.

    • spencer1952

      Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican I get that Robby but again the Dixiecrats moved over to the Republican party in protest of the Democratic president LBJ signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, this is a fact. LBJ even said that he will lose the South but so be it. The Republicans of the 50′s & 60′s were indeed the ‘Civil Rights’ party but the Republicans of 2013 have sold their souls to the devil and the Tea Party.

      • BRobCleveland

        There is NO documentary evidence that MLK was a Republican, and his own autobiography tends to destroy ANY inference that he was aligned with that backward slinking party —

        “The Republican Party geared its appeal and program to racism, reaction, and extremism. All people of goodwill viewed with alarm and concern the frenzied wedding at the Cow Palace of the KKK with the radical right. The ‘best man’ at this ceremony was a senator whose voting record, philosophy, and program were anathema to all the hard-won achievements of the past decade.

        “It was both unfortunate and disastrous that the Republican Party nominated Barry Goldwater as its candidate for President of the United States. In foreign policy Mr. Goldwater advocated a narrow nationalism, a crippling isolationism, and a trigger-happy attitude that could plunge the whole world into the dark abyss of annihilation. On social and economic issues, Mr. Goldwater represented an unrealistic conservatism that was totally out of touch with the realities of the twentieth century. The issue of poverty compelled the attention of all citizens of our country. Senator Goldwater had neither the concern nor the comprehension necessary to grapple with this problem of poverty in the fashion that the historical moment dictated. On the urgent issue of civil rights, Senator Goldwater represented a philosophy that was morally indefensible and socially suicidal. While not himself a racist, Mr. Goldwater articulated a philosophy which gave aid and comfort to the racist. His candidacy and philosophy would serve as an umbrella under which extremists of all stripes would stand. In the light of these facts and because of my love for America, I had no alternative but to urge every Negro and white person of goodwill to vote against Mr. Goldwater and to withdraw support from any Republican candidate that did not publicly disassociate himself from Senator Goldwater and his philosophy.

        “While I had followed a policy of not endorsing political candidates, I felt that the prospect of Senator Goldwater being President of the United States so threatened the health, morality, and survival of our nation, that I could not in good conscience fail to take a stand against what he represented.”

        • spencer1952

          Most blacks when given the opportunity to vote usually voted for Republicans during the civil rights era. JFK was the first Democratic presidential candidate to receive a large percentage of the black vote. However, I agree with you concerning Goldwater.

          • Buster’s View

            We’ll just let you racist Dems chat among yourselves.

      • BRobCleveland

        Google the National Review’s articles about the civil rights movement. Google Ronald Reagan’s quote about MLKs death. Bob Bork . . . William Rhenquist, and all of the people on the right claiming King was a Communist, even saying that disqualified him as recent as his birthday movement.

        How can ANYONE look at all the conservatives calling King a Communist back in the 60s, AND then turn around and claim today that the conservatives were supporting his movement anyway? It is a load of crap.

        • spencer1952

          It was Ronald Reagan who very reluctantly signed the bill to make MLK Day a holiday.

      • Buster’s View

        Really? Can you name more than one Dixiecrat who became a Republican? Cuz we can name a whole bunch of racist southern Dems who remained Dems all their lives.

        • spencer1952

          Strom Thurman, Jesse Helms ( Ted Cruz’ hero), George Wallace, Bull Connor, Fielding Wright, and several other segregationist and Ku Klux Klan members. There are many dangerous parallels with yesterday’s racist Dixiecrats and today’s racist Tea Party.

    • DoggyDaddy

      Your statements sounds bogus. Show us your resources that prove it.
      Here are some facts about the Democrats’ history:
      http://www.garymcleod.org/Perr
      http://www.freerepublic.com/fo

    • Sachi Crow

      http://www.history.com/topics/ku-klux-klan ;) They were a bunch of democrats. Oh and when the Republicans wanted to set the slaves free, it was a democrat who opposed it. It was the Republicans who have always gave a hand up and the democrats who have always tried to keep minority groups down, uneducated, and dependent on government.

      • Ruppert Baird

        And STILL do.

      • BRobCleveland

        Yes, they were mainly Democrats those slave holders. Some Republicans, too, I am sure. Indeed, given that Andrew Johnson was a Dem AND was anti-slavery proves the point that the two were not exclusive.

        But whether you are talking about the pro-slavery forces, or those supporting of Jim Crow and opposing the civil rights movement, one thing is certain — they were CONSERVATIVES above all else. And they still are, as evidenced by White supremacists attending CPAC, and a neo-Confederate secessionist running for Congress under the GOP banner.

        You all are still trying to rest on the laurels of “freeing the slaves.” That was 150 years ago, and now the descendants of those freed slaves flee your party like it is plague ridden. Indeed, how do you both claim the mantle of being “The Party of Lincoln” that freed the slaves, AND then turn around and celebrate and excuse the Confederate flag, the flag of entrenched slavery, treason, and Southern cowardice? How can you be the party that “freed the slaves,” and also the party that has White supremacists secessionists running in your party?

        Is there any shame in this situation? I don’t think there is . . . .

        • Marie Rosato

          the party of Lincoln was republican the party that was for
          slavery and made up the Klan and put off civil rights were the dems read your history books and free your mind

          • BRobCleveland

            You keep talking about parties; I am not. I am talking about political ideology.

            Leftists, Communists, Socialists and moderates, regardless of party, supported the civil rights movement. Conservatives opposed it, both with intellectual arguments and violence, too. Those were NOT any damn “Mississippi liberals” pouring ketchup on a Black man for daring to sit next to White people at a luncheonette counter. Weren’t any liberals arguing that government had no right to “force” them to treat minorities as equals in commerce and housing.

            Those people in the Klan, regardless of party, were conservatives. Likewise, when the White Citizens’ Councils changed their name, what did they call it? Why the Council of CONSERVATIVE Citizens. It is why you have a neo-Confederate running as a Republican in Mississippi, you had a Confederate sympathizer working for Rand Paul, you had Ron Paul’s magazine running flat out racist articles, and you have a GOP county head ADMITTING his racist disdain for Black voters.

            Given all this, you conservatives trying to take credit for what liberal and moderate GOPers did in the 60s, etc., is weak as hell. Which party venerates and excuses the Confederate flag today? The GOP . . . the conservative party.

            In short, the love for Jim Crow did not end . . . it just all migrated to the GOP, where it rests comfortably today.

        • Buster’s View

          Just keep trying to insert Republicans into your Democrat racist history..still won’t work ‘cuz they’re just there “you imagine.” Do you get up every morning and write your “I imagine” history books? White supremacists are Democrats–were then, are now.

    • Matthew Rutledge

        You are way off on everything you just said. You hold the entire tea party and GOP to one moron who was holding a confederate flag???How do you know he wasn’t a democrat who wanted to make the Tea Partiers look bad???

        The GOP does not defend the Confederate flag. You obviously hear and see what you want. You need a history lesson or 100.

        During the Civil Rights movement and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 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. Hostility towards King??? Cannot Sweep away??? Well go back and do you homework because you are blabbing and piecing history together.

        EVERYONE know that during the Lincoln Administration and Civil War that Republicans by FAR support the abolishment of slavery so no need to defend it there.

  • spencer1952

    I am so glad that Kevin Jackson is getting the national exposure he has been graving for these last couple of years. Kevin Jackson fits the description of the “sellout” that everyone thinks of when you hear the words “black republican” or “black conservative”. He exemplifies the self loathing complex of the average Uncle Tom and he calls himself the “Black Glenn Beck.” Ignoring the fact that he’s aspiring to be a guy who was a drug addicted college dropout and now misinforms people daily about history he doesn’t understand, I don’t think Little Kevin is old enough to remember the police dogs and fire hose that was used against his people, he doesn’t know about the strange fruit that used to hang from their trees. He is blind to the fact that these blue-eyed devils who he tries to single handedly absolve from their devilish behavior would still cry foul if he should asked their daughter to marry him. He doesn’t realize that these blue-eyed devils that he loves so much would probably rather have Charles Manson sitting at their dinner table than his little confused black narrow ass any day. Bless his heart.

I have been following Kevin Jackson for some time now, I make it a point to do so. Why? I detest Uncle Toms even more than I do a dyed in the wool racist bigots because when it comes to sell outs like your house negro Kevin Jackson, they are truly the dangerous ones. Go ahead and call me a racist I don’t mind, because if I can piss you off in the slightest I have done my job.

        • DoggyDaddy

          I don’t think you are racist or anything I just wonder where you get all your info to back up your statements.

          • spencer1952

            Believe or not DD I think for myself, I don’t rely on MSNBC or CNN and I’ve been around a long time. I disapprove of somethings Obama has done such as embracing same-sex marriage and abortion on demand. But I am also against everything that is Tea Party, they have hijacked the GOP and this is why a civil war is taking place within the Grand Ole Party today. They (The Tea Party) want to bring back the dark days of Ole Jim Crow, I am against Uncle Toms who are only in it for the popularity, and lastly, I am against people belittling the presidency regardless of if it is President Obama or George W. Bush occupying the office at the time. Now does this help your curiosity?

          • Sandy

            Spencer – exactly how many tea party rallies/and or meetings have you attended? I have been to many and have never heard a racial remark at any of them! You really should stop believing what you hear from the leftists. All the tea party wants is what’s good for the country, not just for one race.

          • spencer1952

            Sandy, I have no doubt that the tea party rallies you have attended was exactly the way you describe it to be. However, I am not speaking of your rallies/and or meetings. For sure there are a few within the GOP/Tea Party who are not racist one bit; they just oppose the president’s and democrats policies and this is okay. My disgust is with those who belittle the president based solely upon the color of his skin. And to answer your question, I’ve been to one rally and I’ve seen the very opposite of what you describe. I’ve seen the Hitler, go back to Kenya, Moochelle, Impeach Obama and other bigoted signs being displayed at this particular rally as well.

          • Buster’s View

            You don’t mention anything there that is inherently racist or any different than anything said about George Bush, or probably any other president for that matter. You just assume it is racist because the president has darker skin. That would be your problem. Telling him to go back to Kenya, while stupid, is not any different than telling Ted Cruz to go back to Canada or Cuba. Kenya is where President Obama’s family is from, after all. They could try telling him to go back to Kansas, but I’m not sure he’s ever been there. I’d be glad to see him go back to Chicago or Hawaii though, let them deal with him.

            The Tea Party is not the reason there is rift raff in the Republican party. The moderate Republican’s don’t represent the Republican party like the people and the majority of the Republicans want them to. They are weak on immigration and don’t speak out against Democrats. The Tea Party is in the midst of a come back. Remember 2010? It was only a couple years ago people!. You watch, Tea Party members are going to storm the legislative branch and a few may make it to the executive. Again you have you facts twisted. Stop listening the Main Stream Media. The Drive By Media!!!! Your currently standing on the wrong side of history!. Just like the President, Just like the Liberals, Just like most Democrats. Go ahead board that ship because its sinking. OBAMA CARE and the Un-affordable care act is drilling more holes as we speak. Oh and by the way. There was Weapons Of Mass Destruction in Iraq, they were sent to Syria just like Bush and his Administration claimed at the time and your main stream liberal bias media headed the ANTI Bush campaign.

          • spencer1952

            Personally Matthew, I am glad that the tea party has emerged believe it or not. Because of the tea party the Democrats will keep the Senate and win back the House next year. Because the tea party Hillary Clinton will become the first woman president. No extremist group will ever take leadership in America, yes they have taken over the GOP but the established GOP will wake up pretty soon and throw these Coo coo birds out of their racks. You must be a dumb tea party devotee because you don’t even realize that the so-called Obamacare and Affordable Care Act are the same thing. You see, we can’t have a bunch dummies with your mindset running this nation.

          • Matthew Rutledge

            You can believe what you want but I don’t just assume that the Tea Party is going to succeed, I research and what I am finding they are expanding and catching a lot of ground. Similar to the 1994 Republican ranks. The Patient Protection and “Affordable” Care Act is the same thing as Obama Care, of course I know that. Because I research and actually read about what I am interested in and what is helping or hurting this great nation. If you think Government should be involved in everything that goes on in the Country and Economy, in our health care, if you think big government is the way to go and is the answer then vote Democrat. If you think the Government through taxes should take care of the poor through the redistribution of wealth, “socialism”. Vote Democrat……. However, If you think The free market system, competitive capitalism, and private enterprise create the greatest opportunity and the highest standard of living for all. Free markets produce more economic growth, more jobs and higher standards of living than those systems burdened by excessive government regulation. Vote Republican….. If you support competitive, free market health care system. All Americans have access to health care. The debate is about who should pay for it. Free and low-cost government-run programs (socialized medicine) result in higher costs and everyone receiving the same poor-quality health care. Health care should remain privatized. The problem of uninsured individuals should be addressed and solved within the free market healthcare system – the government should not control healthcare. Then vote Republican……
            I know who I vote for and why I vote for them. So to accuse me of not knowing what laws are what and that the Democrats are good for the growth and prosperity of this great country, well try again. Its a damn shame.

          • spencer1952

            I always vote a Democratic straight ticket in each and every election local, state, or national. I consider myself way too informed to ever vote Republican especially since they allowed the radical faction Tea Party to hijack them. I am a moderate and being moderate usually means that you’re either moving from right to left or from left to right. That being so I agree with some of your argument believe it or not, my dissatisfactions with republicans/tea partiers are all about people. Republican party just continues to attract people like Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, Hank Williams, Jr. and other imbeciles. As a result, the GOP has become what Republican Gov. Jindal refers to as the “stupid party” And, I will never willingly align myself with people like that. You can believe what you want Matthew,but until they do something about the type of people their party attracts, I’ll keep my ass across the street.

You should really do your homework spencie poo. http://whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/BODIES.html They’ve attacked obama and his administration for their agenda, not for the color of his black/white skin. By the way, he is Muslim. Are you Muslim? Our freedoms secured by our Constitution are at stake. I don’t care the color of the president’s skin. If our Constitution and our rights are at stake, you bet your black skin I’m going to stand up against it. I’m hispanic with a last name of Cortez. I don’t consider myself Mexican. Not that I’m putting my heritage down. I have lived my entire life in the U.S.A., never in Mexico, and have been proud to call this country home and myself an American. I appreciate my freedoms and want to keep it that way. I appreciate being able to work hard for my money and do with it as I please. If I want to buy myself a BMW or donate money to a homeless person, that should be my call, not the governments. If I want to have health insurance for my family, that should be my call and not be forced to pay for Tom, Dick, and Harry’s along with mine. All you care to see is the color of your skin that you can’t get past. You hate your skin color so much you won’t let your self see past it to see what the real issues are. And you are wrong. An extremist group will take over, but it will be radical Islamists forcing this country into sharia law, helped by obama, if patriotic Americans don’t stand up for their rights now. Is that what you want spence? I don’t care that I make you sad with my views. I want my family to have a bright future in this my country. The government should work for me, not the other way around.

        • jim

          me thinks thy protest too much…. This is the perfect example of the liberal mindset. Spence sir, you made up, out of your own imaginings, that he called you a racist instead of what he clearly stated was “left wing dribble”. This is the modern liberal tactic of choice. History must be truth, and the truth is that the democrat party was the party of slavery, fought it to bitter end, enacted jim crow laws, and started local and national kkk gangs to scare and kill blacks and republicans. This is not a hard study.

        • Martha Cortez

          And that’s all you can do really, piss people off. More power to you. So go keep poisoning yourself with hatred, just like obama does.

    • Carol

      You seriously believe what you wrote? I guess then that no one can be redeemed, you felt obligated to throw in his past. Like that makes a difference today. What about Obama’s past…well that what we know of…listen whoever you are…get your head out of your whatever it is in..and see the real world. You are the sell out.

      • spencer1952

        Yes Carol, I seriously believe what I’ve written. Redeemed? He’s still self loathing Uncle Tom??? Sorry if I hurt your feelings concerning your little house negro. Although he has absolved you and your kind it doesn’t count because he only speaks for himself.

        • linreis

          spencer: why is he an ‘uncle tom’, as you put it? that’s about as racial as you can get…you know, the US and all of its citizens, including the DEMOCRATIC KKK, has made mistakes in the growing of this country…Mr. Jackson has grown with it, I can’t say the same for you…Your statement proves you to be a war-monger and a complete radical racist…

          • spencer1952

            He’s a damn Uncle Tom now live with it!

          • Buster’s View

            I think all you democrat racists who throw around “uncle tom” as an epithet should be forced to actually read Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Might cure a bit of your ignorance. Uncle Tom was a hero who was beaten to death rather than betray his friends whom he helped escape into freedom from their vicious, Democrat, slave owner.

            You think you would behave more nobly under his same circumstances? A cowardly, nasty little name-caller like you?

          • Matthew Rutledge

            I think that MOST democrats are actually Republicans but they wont do the research to find out what the truths really are, what really happened in history, what ideology they really believe. I find evidence of this all over and in many conversations.

          • spencer1952

            Yea, yea, the real Uncle Tom was a good man and got a bad wrap when they made a movie about it. But today in 2013, Uncle Tom describes people who sell out their race for some sort of personal gain.

          • linreis

        • Martha Cortez

          You and the likes of you are a sad case. Always wanting to be the victims. I think little Kevin doesn’t remember the police dogs and fire hoses used against his people because it didn’t happen to him or his parents. And please inform us where Charles Manson ended up, please, and who put him there. If you and your people are so miserable in this country, go back to your mother land, wherever that may be. No, instead you choose to live among the evil blue-eyed devils thinking they owe you and your people something. Stop screaming racism. How many whites worship Oprah, and black comedians and actors, and black professional athletes??? Get over it already and live a happy life in the U.S. land of opportunity while it lasts.

            I don’t understand your choice of words to reply to a different point of view. Does calling someone by their race in some way make the argument turn in your favor? Please help me understand your thinking.

          • spencer1952

            Maybe you need to apply this same question to the people who have viciously attacked the president for the past five years first, and then I will help you understand my thinking.

          • Martha Cortez

            Is that all you have left to say? You can’t deny it so you resort to a childish reply.

          • spencer1952

            Martha, if you are Hispanic you are no better than Kevin Jackson and I really don’t have much to say to you because people like you really really bother me that is why I haven’t responded to you in manner you want me to because you make me feel very sad.

      • Martha Cortez

        It’s in his ass. Let’s not beat around the bush.

    • Buster’s View

      A..hemmm…Apparently YOU are not old enough to remember that the police dogs and fire hoses “used against ‘his people’” were used by DEMOCRATS. You also are apparently too young to know that it was Democrats in those white hoods hanging the “strange fruit” from southern trees. It was a Republican president who sent in the national guard to protect young black children trying to go to school, and a Democrat trying to stop them on the school house steps.

      I know of no Republicans who have a problem with “mixed race” couples or marriages, there are plenty of examples in my circle of acquaintance. My son is “mixed race” and we’ve never had a single problem from any conservative–only from democrats and “tolerant” liberals. The people throwing bricks through the windows of mixed-race couples and burning crosses on their lawns were Democrats, not Republicans. You have any idea how many prominent black republicans have a white or other color variation wife or husband? It is only democrats I see who are so obsessed with the precise level of melanin in ones skin. I think you should get over it.

      • spencer1952

        I remember the dogs Buster, I was there. Once again, it was indeed Democrats who like the Republicans today had a hate mongering radical fringe group like the Tea Party known as the “Dixiecrats” these group bigots left the Democratic party and join the Republican party the same Republican party of today.

        • Mandoman91 .

          Check your facts on the “Dixiecrats”. Could you please name them. I bet you can’t, and would I appreciate it if you could. I checked and aside from Strom Thurmond, there aren’t any more. Please check for me?

          • Matthew Rutledge

            Yeah that blog is crap… You need to start from the top and go over all my posts and get yourself a history lesson. The information is all creditable and you can do the research for yourself. The party’s ideology changed, from Republican’s wanting the expansion of government….. Back before the war and sometime after. To The Democrats wanting bigger government. The ideologies changed…. not ethics. The Demondcrats were and are racists… The republicans were not and never were. Speaking from the parties as a whole.

          • spencer1952

            Hey___!!! it’s old Matthew, what are you going to do when the Republicans lose the House next year? And the Democrats will once again run both the House and the Senate giving President Obama the opportunity to carry out his full agenda before Hillary takes over. I know, come on some stupid neoconservative website like this one and throw a pity party. Kinda like you’re doing right now.

          • Matthew Rutledge

            I don’t know if you have noticed but your President is ruining the Democratic party on his own. What are you going to do when the county keeps falling behind. When Your President keeps denying his knowledge about every scandal and major event that effects this country. Hillary wont even get the nomination from her party because of Benghazi. Your going to be on the wrong side of history, everyone is starting to see what the Left’s agenda is and how they hold no one responsible, they have no leadership, they would rather shut down the government and fight republicans than get the spending under control….. actually according to them we don’t have a spending problem at all. Go back and look at what Obama ran on and look at his record now. He has not done anything for the country, for African Americans, for the poor, for the national debt, taxes, foreign policy, he has degraded the military, and evoked socialist policies and much more. I came to this website to view the video during research. Because that’s what I do, I research and vote accordingly. I don’t hold an agenda, nor do I get commit to a party and defend them no matter what. If your not apart of the solution your apart of the problem. We already have too many problems, so no I wont be on the wrong side of History like you. The Democratic party will fall in the House, Senate, and on the Executive level. The parliament will be filled with Constitutionalists voted by the people who have been awaken by an over aggressive and forever expanding government. People are getting tired of all the lies and disappointment and this Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (I guess it was opposite day when they came up with that name) is just putting a nail in the coffin.
            Hillary will run, but she wont be select by the Democratic party just like before.
            My prediction is Ryan, Rubio or Christie
            and Clinton, Biden or _____???? Who knows

          • spencer1952

            And have you noticed that every so-called scandal has been contrived? You want your ‘Watergate’ so badly but it just won’t manifest itself in the way you would like. President Obama has completely outsmarted the GOP/Tea Party at every turn. The Democratic party has President Obama’s back, and unlike your beloved party there is no ‘civil war’ among them, I love to watch as you conservatives and neoconservatives go at each other like jealous siblings. This is why the GOP is enjoying a record breaking low approval rating among Americans today and why both the House and the Senate will be controlled by Democrats by this time next year. This is why Hillary and Bill Clinton will occupy the White House for a second time, can you imagine this history making event is on the verge of actually happening? Wow!!!

          • Matthew Rutledge

            Contrived? Wow, I thought I was actually having a meaningful argument, but if you think every time the President says “I was not aware of that” about the scandals or misrepresentations he creates and find that acceptable, well you just don’t want to see it and there is not point of even having a conversation. I agree that the GOP needs to stick together like the Democrats do and campaign, and call politicians out when they are wrong. There is not a “civil war” within the party like portrayed in the media but there is conflict between Moderates and the Tea Party because the Moderates have NO BALLS and don’t represent their constituents like they should but the Ideology is what I vote for and the left is so messed up Id rather vote for Me for President or You for the Legislative Branch.
            In no way would I ever want a one party system, Republican nor Democrat. Checks and balances is extremely important for Governments to flourish and I would agree with you about the up coming elections but you have to be more realistic about what is happening. If it were not for President Obama and Liberal extremists the Democrats would probably run the House but if you don’t see that ship sinking you simply don’t want to.
            I don’t want any Democrat nor Republican nor the President in some scandal or doubted because I love my country and when the President makes an ass of himself and the Democrats wont work with Republicans, those institutions need cleaning. Its not helping our current situation. I don’t wish evil or negativity on anyone. I just see what is going on and HOPE for change. Not the change promised and lied about from our President.
            If that doesn’t make sense and you honestly cant say that he is a serious problem right now then I have nothing else to say. You have got to get real and honest with yourself. He says one thing and does another and blatantly lies to us. No agenda talk to bias, if I were Democrat id be saying the same thing. Like I said I don’t commit to a party and defend it for no reason, especially if they are wrong and need to go.
            Having said that im not a conspiracy theorist, or think that the President is evil, or Hairy Reid is evil I just think they have a socialist agenda and that agenda doesn’t conform with the Constitution or what the founding fathers sought out for the Democracy they and so many generations there after fought for.

          • spencer1952

            That’s right Matthew, contrived is the word. The truth is you people don’t want a black man in the White House you will scrutinize every little thing he does. It has nothing to do with his policies and everything to do with the color of his skin. You people tried to create a scandal because he placed his feet on his desk in the Oval office, until it was exposed that Reagan and George W. Bush did the exact same thing. If he is so scandal ridden where is the Special Prosecutor? Where are the Senate Investigation committees? Like your Uncle Tom host, Kevin Jackson suggested you want a Republican white man back in the White House but you can’t find any with the ability to win anymore;all your racist ugliness is being displayed and exposed before the entire world and even worst it is being displayed before God Himself you will have to answer for it and what will you say?

          • spencer1952

            Simply put Matthew, you want your whites only nation back. But times have changed and it is not to be. Never again Matthew, never again.

          • Matthew Rutledge

            Wow, Ignorance is like an anchor, how many of you liberals are out there, that’s a lot of anchors. Another Liberal bigot hypocrite. Just because you call a tree a bush doesn’t mean I nor anyone eels see anything but a tree.
            By the way, there has been over 16 Congressional Hearings on Health Care alone not to mention all the other un-patriotic scandals and lies your President is involved with. Your a sad low information voter who knows not what he, well knows.

        • Mandoman91 .

            I really like this quote from the link I just sent you, “As a Republican (Tea Party), you need to ask yourselves, are you happy being a member of a party that rivals the old Dixiecrats and their Jim Crow laws and attitudes? If so, then stick with it all the way to the bottom, ’cause, my friends, you are going down.” What a delightful quote don’t you think?

    Is this the same dude who wrote that post about “America needs a White Republican president”?

    You people truly are the party of the Confederate flag!

    • CallMeAnn

      Kind of like Bill Clinton having no high level black cabinet members but GWB naming Condoleezza as AG? And here in TX, we had a very able and qualified black man run as a Republican for one of the most influential posts in state govt. (RR commissioner, which controls our mineral resources) and our male state RNC member (there has to be one male and one female) is a black doctor from my own small town. I totally get that citing specific cases known to a voter won’t add up to comparable numbers but I will say that any time any person of color stands for the same convictions that resonate with our platform is heralded with great enthusiasm. We dearly want minorities to join us but we don’t want them just for their skin color or just to pander to the typical vote buying schemes. We don’t court voters by telling them we will give them free stuff. Those two systems are the way the Democrats work.

      • CallMeAnn

        Oh, and Ted Cruz himself would be considered a minority if he were a Democrat, but since he’s a Republican, he’s considered white.

        • BRobCleveland

          Ted Cruz considers himself White. And if you believe “American needs a White Republican president,” and you believe Ted Cruz is that man, well then YOU THINK HE IS WHITE, TOO!!

          • Buster’s View

            Probably no one is responding to your accusation because we don’t know what the hell you are talking about. That is probably because you don’t know what the hell you are talking about.

          • Matthew Rutledge

            You make no sense. Non. Period. Ted Cruz considers himself White. And I think Ted Cruz considers himself a Presidential Prospect. So I think Ted Cruz see’s a white man as President. CallMeAnn is stating that Ted “can” be considered as minority or Cuban. Not Mexican like your friends with NBC claims they need to play Mexican music along side a picture of his face. Yeah They said that so according to your thought process, You should now not like liberals because they make racists comments. But no. This is proof that you pick and hear what you want and then attack people with false views, false accusations and distorted historical facts.

      • BRobCleveland

        You are trying to change the subject. I won’t let you.

        “We dearly want minorities to join us but we don’t want them just for their skin color or just to pander to the typical vote buying schemes.”

        You want them to join you . . . just don’t try to lead, colored folks! JC Watts can probably attest to that. And that is why you had a guy write a “no minorities need apply” column . . . and you cons CHEERED!!!

        You all have a VERY different mindset about the role of minorities, and why they vote the way they do. You cons INSIST it is about “free stuff” . . . as if the millions of college and graduate school educated minorities in this country are looking for scraps from massa’s table. In your mind, maybe. But that is not reality. See, you cons don’t get minority votes because you don’t respect minorities, and you don’t work for their votes. The Dems do respect minorities and they do work for their votes.

        Again, you all’s mindset is fascinating. Did the libs ever have ANYONE run, with approval, an article about how we need a White president, so that minorities need not apply? Did they? No. But a con runs that article LAST WEEK . . . not in the Jim Crow days, but TODAY, and you all here were cheering it on!

        Think about it — one party has a Black man run for president, successfully, and the other party is telling ALL MINORITIES that they should not even try, because they thing America “needs” a White president.

        Why would any self-respecting minority want to join a group with THAT mindset?

        • Matthew Rutledge

          Correction, The Dems. Do not respect the minorities but they Do work for the vote.

    How do you conservatives reconcile your present admiration for the Confederate flag (that symbol of anti-Black terrorism, treason, and treachery), and the conservatives’ strident opposition to the civil rights movement, with the idea that your side should get “credit” for liberal and moderate Republicans supporting the civil rights movement?

    I don’t get it . . . .

    • Buster’s View

      There is not conservative “admiration” for the confederate flag. You are the only one obsessed with it. Maybe you should get rid of the big confederate flag hanging on the wall in your basement…set yourself free.

      The Republican party is the party that supports liberty for everyone, always has been. The Democrat party is the party that wants to control everyone’s thoughts and lives, always has been. the Republicans were for freedom and civil rights long before dems were, and had to drag them along when the civil rights act finally was passed. Both LBJ and JFK were against the first civil rights act–were against civil rights before they were for it.

Be that it may, if you know that what you think you know is nothing, then the opposite has the greater likelihood of being knowledgeable. Thus, the mirrored result is Conservative or Moderate Republicanism. TRUE!

    • Steve Harmon

      Heehee, racist homophobe.

  • BRobCleveland

    All you need to do to figure out who the lynchers would align with today is ask “Where can I hang my Confederate flag at your national convention?”

    The Republicans would debate whether it should be on the same pole as the Stars and Stripes.

    The Dems would tell you “The only place it could be hung is the inside of the dumpster out in back of the kitchen.”

    • Carole Naro

      Let’s get something straight BR, the KKK members were all Democrats during the 50′s. The Republican Party fought the KKK by having the Black Voters join their party so that they could vote, which by the way was prevented by the KKK Democrats in the south. Read your History BR and this time read it correctly.

      • BRobCleveland

        I am talking about NOW. Now,no Klan member would be caught in the minority friendly party headed by a Black man.

        And I am talking about IDEOLOGY. The conservatives NEVER supported the civil rights movement, and they cannot even take a stand against the God damned Confederate flag today! This is why a neo-Confederate pro-slavery White supremacists felt comfortable attending a “minority outreach: seminar at CPAC. You all coddle those bigots.

        Can you imagine a a neo-Confederate pro-slavery White supremacist showing up at NetRoots and trying to sell his wares or trumpet his ideas?

        Can you imagine a neo-Confederate pro-slavery White supremacist attending RootsCamp and trying to sing the praises of slavery?

        Nope. Because he knows he would not be welcomed by ANYONE. Ah, but a a neo-Confederate pro-slavery White supremacist attends CPAC and “leaves as friends” with the minority outreach speaker.

        This is why your party has so damn little minority support, and even that is shrinking . . . .

        • Matthew Rutledge

          The reason Democrats have minority support is because they want to reform Immigration and they support the welfare state. Actually, if you do some research you will find that minorities and the African American community were better off before Obama became president. Conservative Moderate or Progressive, what does it matter. Liberals in todays standards are on the left or vote democrat. Yes I understand that there are Conservative democrats but not many get votes or are supported by their respective parties because they do not have a reliable vote. You talk about the Confederate flag, I’m a conservative that grew up in the south and I find that there are more people in the north that are racists. Slavery is over, he United States is blending cultures as time goes on and the majority voted a black president. Republicans and conservatives didn’t vote Republican because of the presidents race. This is the issue that Liberals love to hit on because if they can bring your character into question then they discredit you. Research Liberalism and Conservatism and apply those definitions to each party. It should be very clear in todays politics what party is what.

          • BRobCleveland

            “You talk about the Confederate flag, I’m a conservative that grew up in the south and I find that there are more people in the north that are racists. ”

            White people from the South always seem to say this. Funny, I’ve never heard a Black person from the South agree.

          • Matthew Rutledge

            Really, because the south is a bigger melting pot than anywhere. Yes California has a lot of Hispanic’s and Asians but the south is extremely diverse. I live in Atlanta for 18 years growing up and I NEVER met anyone that used the N word. It is thrown around up here like it is Halloween Candy. Its disgusting. I grew up with a lot of Black and Arabic friends, Mexican, Cuban, Spanish, Puerto Rican, French, German, English, American Indian as well, like Navaho, Cherokee, etc. I am actually mostly American Indian so I can be viewed as a minority, but I do not see myself that way. I see Americans as American, not that of a different race or ethnic decent. So when I look back at history I cannot trust Democrats, because they use the same tactics and then those are covered up by the main stream media.

        • Carole Naro

          If you read my post correctly you’d know where I stand. I find it deplorable. What I was stating was the fact that, according to the FACTS & HISTORY, most democrats initiated the KKK and they were a voting factor during the 50′s & 60′s. NOT THE REPUBLICANS.

          • Carole Naro

            Further, The Tea Party wasn’t even thought about this time around until the 2010 Mid-Term Elections. Most people, especially left-leaning voters, think that the Tea Party are Nazi’s, KKK’s, etc. which is the moniker that the Democrats & left-leaners like Clayborn of Florida gives them. The Tea Party does not condone racism, which the Democrats constantly blames the Tea Party for. The democrats should look at themselves because racism has been rampant since the 1920′s by them against blacks and people of color. Like I said, BR & Buster should read your history first before opening up your mouth and showing just how ignorant you both are.

    • Skyhawk95

      Funny, I’m in the South and the guys flying Confederate Flags down here vote for Democratic Representatives (if they remember to vote at all)

      So Troll, take your warping of history back to KOS, DU or the Huff & Puff post. Nobody on here is dumb enough to fall for your lies.

      • BRobCleveland

        Man, I can see the fire shooting out your ears as you tell that lie!!!

          i can vouch for skyhawk. BRob, do you even live in the south? i doubt that you do….. i had a confederate flag on my truck when i was stupid enough to vote gore and kerry. and guess what?……… i’m half black. the flag has nothing to do with race.

  • Matthew Rutledge

    Again, Here we have another racists. Im not sure where you tie the republican party with the Confederate flag…… Ignorance ties them apparently. The United States has become essentially a two-party system. Since the birth of the republic, a conservative (such as the Republican Party) and liberal (such as the Democratic Party) party has usually been the status quo within American politics. The first parties were called Federalist and Republican, followed by a brief period of Republican dominance before a split occurred between National Republicans and Democratic Republicans. The former became the Whig Party and the latter became the Democratic Party. The Whigs survived only for two decades before they split over the spread of slavery, those opposed becoming members of the new Republican Party, as did anti-slavery members of the Democratic Party. The new Republican Party was created by the sole ideology that slavery is wrong. The Democrats did not evolve into this way of thinking until much later. Like the 1950′s and 60′s……..

    • BRobCleveland

      Did you not see the tea bag person with the Confederate flag at the White House two weeks ago? What party do you think he votes?

      And, of course I tie the GOP with the Confederate flag, since that party defends it and, more importantly, defends the mindset behind it.

      As for the Dems “evolving” in the 1950s and 60s . . . you are ignoring the strong forces in the American left (all Dems) pushing non-discrimination back into the 1920s. And where was the similar vanguard in the GOP? Non-existent. In fact, while the Dems were too coddling to the conservative racists in the party, the GOP’s conservative intellectual arms (i.e., Bill Buckley, etc.) we absolute boosters and apologists for Jim Crow, even if violence was needed to maintain unconstitutional White domination.

      No, Jim Crow was a conservative institution in that it sought to freeze in amber the second class status of Negroes. The liberals, of course, were happy to set fire to those laws, traditions, customs and institutions . . . because that is what liberals do . . . upend sh*t.

      In short, the conservative movement’s hostility toward King and the civil rights movement are facts that you cannot sweep away.

      • Matthew Rutledge

        You are way off on everything you just said. You hold the entire tea party and GOP to one moron who was holding a confederate flag???How do you know he wasn’t a democrat who wanted to make the Tea Partiers look bad???

        The GOP does not defend the Confederate flag. You obviously hear and see what you want. You need a history lesson or 100.

        During the Civil Rights movement and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 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. Hostility towards King??? Cannot Sweep away??? Well go back and do you homework because you are blabbing and piecing history together.

        • Retired Marine

          The fool with the flag was a dem, just another plant.

          • BRobCleveland

            Yeah, right. Like Dem Marine showed up at a Tea Party event with Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin and Larry Klayman . . . .

            Occam’s razor says, in short, the simplest explanation if the most likely one. Dems do not attend Tea Party rallies . . . they would rather be bathing in latte or planting flowers for peace. Nope, that was one of you’rne with that flag of ignorance, terrorism, racism and treason.

          • Matthew Rutledge

            Brown vs. Board of Education in 1954 was won on a Republican Supreme Court, and the DEMOCRATS opposed integration of African Americans into schools.

            The display of the Confederate flag is a highly controversial topic. It was largely absent during the Civil War, Rather, the Confederate flag was reintroduced in 1956, just two years after the Supreme Court decision Brown v Board of Education. It was considered by many to be a protest against school desegregation. It was raised at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) during protests against integration of schools.

            Supporters of the flag view it as a symbol of southern heritage and the independence of the distinct cultural tradition of the South from the North. Some groups use the Southern Cross as one of the symbols associated with their organizations, including groups such as the Ku Klux Klan.

            For some, the flag represents only a past era of southern sovereignty. Some historical societies such as the Sons of Confederate Veterans and the United Daughters of the Confederacy also use the flag as part of their symbols. Some rockabilly fans hold the Confederate flag as their emblem as well.

            As a result of these varying perceptions, there have been a number of political controversies surrounding the use of the Confederate flag in Southern state flags, at sporting events, at Southern universities, and on public buildings. According to Civil War historian and native Southerner Shelby Foote, the flag traditionally represented the South’s resistance to Northern political dominance; it became racially charged during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, when fighting against desegregation suddenly became the focal point of that resistance.
            So to your point that “Conservatives” When you really mean Republicans use the Flag and worship it. Just remember that the DEMOCRATS “Liberals” were the ones who tarnished the name of the Confederate flag!! They brought shame to the flag, the flag doesn’t represent terrorism, racism and treason but that of the resistance of Northern political dominance……Only during the civil rights did the Democratic Party use this as a tool and thus tarnish it forever. Witch is why I do not defend the flag because minorities see the flag for what the Dems made it to be.
            Again do your home work because if you come at me with anything other than facts you’ll loose every time. Given everything you don’t know and what you think you know you may vote differently. That is if you ever see the truth.

        Sorry bobby boy but according to a pbs documentary the Dems were formed in 1792 and referred to as “The White mans party” and they demonized (like you do) the Republican Party as being “Negro Dominated”.

      • Richard Felton

        the confederate flag is not racist. when will you leftists stop associating everything to racism. the civil war was not based on slavery. the freeing of slaves was a benefit of the civil war. do you even know how little of the south owned slaves? do you not realize that there were white irish slaves that were treated worse than the black slaves? pssst…..don’t tell anyone but they were even in the north. did you know that there is still slavery in the world today and that obama sends money to the slavers? did you know that the only reason racism and slavery is such a big deal in this country still? because many country use people of the same ethnicity as their slaves…..hhhhhhhhhm.

    • Matthew Rutledge

      Of course I am not implying that ‘all’ democrats are or were racists but I am rather suggesting that, through the research of historical voting, that as a party or as a whole the republicans were motivated much earlier to side with the more civil and modern point of view of equality.

    • JEButler

      They still haven’t evolved to the republicans way of thinking. They now use government benefits to control the blacks instead of whips!! The Republicans work is not yet done until they free the blacks from the democrat Massa’s

        Oooh here we go again… It was not the CONSERVATIVS. It was the DEMOCRATS…..

        they feel a need to try and rewrite it. it all started when they started teaching our kids that the civil war was fought over slavery.

        • Matthew Rutledge

          Well the Civil War was fought because states broke from the Union. The reason they broke from the Union is because President Lincoln ran for the Presidency on abolishing slavery, and he won, so the Confederate states broke away from Texas to South Carolina and Florida. Later states such as Virgina, North Carolina, and etc. broke and was the breaking point of the Country, and the war could have gone either way. Luckily victory sided with equality and began the process of becoming collectively The United States of American. The decision to let slavery continue West or stop it all together was at hand and President Lincoln knew it. He is the savior of the U.S. and served far before his time. I am a true believer that people are put here and in places right when they need to be.

          • Richard Felton

            slavery was not the start of the civil war. tariffs on cotton, states rights vs federal rights, then slavery, then the election of lincoln were one of the main causes. slavery was not the main proponent of the civil war.

    The utter Irony of this article from Mr. Jackson is it appears that Mr. Jackson is the one who will be shown the history lesson. The pervasive ignorance and denial on this topic by conservatives makes for great late night political fodder. One would think by now that Conservatives would have learned how to do basic Google and Bing Queries on the internet to research these topics before making complete comedic asses of themselves.

    It will be interesting if Mr. Jackson will have the balls to admit his ignorance on this subject and offer the appropriate apologies… But that is doubtful.

    Now for all the arrogant and ignorant people on this thread who refer to people commenting on this article about its falsehood as “Trolls,” you have proven how utterly ignorant you are. Calling people names because YOU do not agree with historical facts just proves how childish you really are…

    “Prior to the formation of the conservative coalition, which helped realign the Democratic and Republican party ideologies in the mid-1960s, the party historically advocated classical liberalism, paleoconservatism, and progressivism.”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republican_Party_(United_States)

    Anyone who got a passing grade in High School Political Science KNOWS that Lincoln was a Liberal and that the Parties switched ideologies in the mid 1960’s

    Cheers!

    • Matthew Rutledge

      Yes they did switch Ideologies, rhetoric, and focus but it happened much earlier that the 1960′s. During the time of Lincoln’s Presidency, the country was much different than today, hinting to the fact that Liberalism and Conservatism was focused differently as well. The reason Republican’s wanted expansion of Government not only had to do with Reconstruction but the expansion of the Country itself to the West. Using the Army to defeat slavery, defend against American Indian tribal invasions and enforce the laws that protected African Americans. It was only when the Government Federally and at the State level was able to Govern and Police the states in witch Civil Rights were Opposed…. By the Democrats. However, having said that, when is easier to answer than why, though there’s no single date. (It would be nicer, though, if in one presidential election, say, the two candidates had done a partial do-si-do and ended up in each other’s places.) But we can pretty easily bracket the era of change.

      At the beginning, we can put the Civil War. During the 1860s, the Republicans favored an expansion of federal power and passed over Democratic opposition a set of laws sometimes called the Second American System, providing federal aid for the transcontinental railroad, for the state university system, for the settlement of the West by homesteaders; for a national currency and a protective tariff.

      Taken together, this was a highly ambitious program for expanding federal power. It was mercantilist, but it also aimed to get small-time farmers and ordinary citizens to buy into it with the Homestead Act and the state universities. And, broadly speaking, Democrats opposed it.

      The postwar era of Reconstruction saw this division grow clearer, as the Republicans supported an expansion of federal power to provide civil right for African Americans in the Civil Rights Act of 1866, the Fourteenth Amendment and the creation of the Department of Justice—an expansion that, again, Democrats opposed.

      So through the early 1870s, then, the lines are pretty clearly drawn. Let’s leave that era for a moment and flash forward to our closing bracket, which we might as well make the 1936 election. Here we have the Democratic incumbent Franklin Roosevelt winning reelection for the successes and promise of the New Deal, which expanded federal power to provide … well, an awfully long list of benefits including banking, securities, and currency regulation; relief for the unemployed and pensions for the elderly; wilderness conservation; improvements to roads and electric infrastructure; support for unionization; and much else. And he was opposed in this election by Republicans staunchly against this expansion of state power.

      • Matthew Rutledge

        And to the Troll Comments…. The ones I have notice are focused at obvious liberal bias and NO historical facts. No sure who you are referring to but the “conservatives” are the FACTUAL argumentative types and NOT Liberals. Common, even liberals know that.

    • chiefpontiac

      It seems you need a history lesson. It was the Democrat Party who created the KKK. And the people they went after were Republicans. The Republicans were causing problems because they were helping Black people with education and voting. Democrats were also the party of Jim Crow. Let’s fast forward; If it weren’t for Republicans neither of the Civil Rights Acts would have passed. Just google Everett Dirksen. Ike had Civil Rights legislation in 1957 that was virtually identical to what was passed in 1964 but a Democrat in the Senate shot it down. His name was LBJ. Remember it was a man of the Political Left who put Japanese Americans in internment camps by executive order. A man of the Political Left, Woodrow Wilson had open hatred and contempt for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Wilson re-segregated the Civil Service which had de-segregated since the Civil War. He screened the Birth of a Nation in the White House and called this most racist of films, “true history”. It was the Political Left, (Democrats) in America who created the eugenics movement which ended up as the Final Solution in Leftist Nazi Germany. This was never taught in your high school PoliSci class because the left controls the educational system and the media. Now, let’s talk about the Dixiecrats, which every liberal brings up during these debates. There weren’t many Republicans in the South prior to 1964, but that doesn’t mean the birth of the southern GOP was tied to “white racism.” That being said, I am sure there were white racist southern GOP. No one would deny that. But it was the southern Democrats who were the party of slavery and, later, segregation. It was George Wallace, not John Tower, who stood in the southern schoolhouse door to block desegregation! As I mentioned above, the vast majority of Congressional GOP voted FOR the Civil Rights of 1964-65. The vast majority of those opposed to those acts were southern Democrats. Southern Democrats led to infamous filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The confusion arises from GOP Barry Goldwater’s vote against the ’64 act. He had voted in favor or all earlier bills and had led the integration of the Arizona Air National Guard and he was a co-founder of the NAACP in AZ, but he didn’t like the “private property” aspects of the ’64 law. In other words, Goldwater believed people’s private businesses and private clubs were subject only to market forces, not government mandates (“We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.”) His vote against the Civil Rights Act was because of that one provision was, to my mind, a principled mistake. This stance is what won Goldwater the South in 1964, and no doubt many racists voted for Goldwater in the mistaken belief that he opposed Civil Rights for Blacks. But Goldwater was not a racist; he was a libertarian who favored both civil rights and property rights. Switch to 1968. Richard Nixon was also a proponent of Civil Rights; he was a CA colleague of Earl Warren who urged Ike to appoint Warren to the Supreme Court; he was a supporter of Brown v. Board, and favored sending troops to integrate Little Rock High). Nixon saw he could develop a “Southern strategy” based on Goldwater’s inroads. He did, but Independent Democrat George Wallace carried most of the deep south in 68. By 1972, however, Wallace was shot and paralyzed, and Nixon began to tilt the south to the GOP. The old guard Democrats began to fade away while a new generation of Southern politicians became Republicans. True, Strom Thurmond switched to GOP, but most of the old timers (Fulbright, Gore, Wallace, Byrd etc etc) retired as Dems. Why did a new generation white Southerners join the GOP? Not because they thought Republicans were racists who would return the South to segregation, but because the GOP was a “local government, small government” party in the old Jeffersonian tradition. Southerners wanted less government and the GOP was their natural home. Jimmy Carter, a Civil Rights Democrat, briefly returned some states to the Democrat fold in 1976, but in 1980, Goldwater’s heir, Ronald Reagan, sealed this deal for the GOP. The new “Solid South” was solid GOP. BUT, and we must stress this, the new southern Republicans were *integrationist* Republicans who accepted the Civil Rights revolution and full integration while retaining their love of Jeffersonian limited government principles. Your comment that Lincoln was a liberal is laughable. He was a Republican in the Jeffersonian sense. The Republican Party charter has remained virtually unchanged since the party’s inception in 1856. Limited government being the main pillar. Limited government and liberalism do not go together. It would be like holding a Crucifix up to a vampire. Maybe this is where someone got the idea for Abraham Lincoln Vampire Killer….
