Somebody forgot to reming the Distinguished Gentleman from Alabama that Wallace was a Democrat.
Yes, I am getting flashbacks to George Wallace. The crowd reactions that Palin is getting are similar.
The problem for the Republicans is that America is smarter and more diverse than it was in 1972. Racism is not as strong as it was, although we see some of it on this board.
Wallace was a DEMOCRAT
He was a Dixiecrat Democrat. They were racists.
So are most of the Republicans I know here in Virginia.
i see stupid people.
Key word in bold. It is the same party. The party of Kennedy and Johnson. You have to take the bad wth good.
George Wallace was a democrat, in a time when in the south many Racist Democrats leaders were trying to keep the Blacks from voting. MLK. Jr for example was a Republican.
I don't think John Lewis forgot this at all. John Lewis was beaten to a bloody pulp by a White mob in Montgomery as a Freedom Rider in the spring of 1961.
He had a huge role in marches, getting attacked by by Police while he was being nonviolent. Some of those wounds are still visible today.
John Lewis knows hate and division when he sees it.

Now it's basically switched. Democrats are accused of giving handouts to the poor which alot of the time can supposedly be only blacks to some people in this nation (though not myself personally do I believe that) while the Republicans are trying to get Blacks and others disfranchised.
I'm only telling you what is considered the truth to plenty of people today. Personally? I don't believe it's mostly blacks who are poor but that's what you hear so very often.
There, I fixed it. Are you going to fix your post since you make me come off as a racist when I'm not?
no, because now you supposed that its republicans that are racist when it was your words to begin with
Do you think Wallace would have been a democrat today? I don't think so! And the Democrats at least changed their point of view and the ones who didn't became Republican!
