    How about dimocrats who hated Dr. King back then, would they hate him today too? I’m talking solid hardcore dims like Richard Russell of GA who fought LBJs civil rights initiatives at every turn because he wanted to keep those southern blacks in their place. He eventually lost out but put up such a good anti-black fight his fellow dims named a Senate office building after him. Anyway, my guess is old Dick and lots of other southern racist dimocrats still wouldn’t cotton to King today.

    My guess is old dick wouldn't be a democrat anymore, just like old Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms and the rest of the "CONSERVATIVE" Dixiecrats...

    I clearly said "CONSERVATIVE" in my thread title -- that transcends political parties.

    Yes...I know that...I was alive back then. Feel free to show anyone's claim that the North was any better than the South in this regard, Don Quixote.

    And it was Republicans who were instrumental in assisting LBJ in getting the law passed so he could sign it. FACTS MATTER.

    "The Civil Rights Act -- which is best known for barring discrimination in public accommodations -- passed the House on Feb. 10, 1964 by a margin of 290-130. When broken down by party, 61 percent of Democratic lawmakers voted for the bill (152 yeas and 96 nays), and a full 80 percent of the Republican caucus supported it (138 yeas and 34 nays).

    When the Senate passed the measure on June 19, 1964, -- nine days after supporters mustered enough votes to end the longest filibuster in Senate history -- the margin was 73-27. Better than two-thirds of Senate Democrats supported the measure on final passage (46 yeas, 21 nays), but an even stronger 82 percent of Republicans supported it (27 yeas, 6 nays)."

    Only a couple of Dixiecrats became Republican. The rest stayed Democrat. History and facts are your friends.

    Dixiecrats were Democrats. Note they weren't called the Dixiecans.

    By the same token, modern day Democrats would despise our founding fathers today.
