    Seems like everyone is familiar with Republican Senator Goldwater’s vote against the 1964 Civil Rights Act…and some even know that he explained, as a constitutionalist, that the reason was the belief that the Congress had no right to mandate how individuals must use their private property…in other words, the limits of the commerce clause.

    A few even know that Goldwater had a long history of fighting segregation and racism, including signing previous civil rights acts.

    But…how many know about the Southern Manifesto?



    1. "In 1956, 19 Senators and 77 members of the House of Representatives signed the "Southern Manifesto," a resolution condemning the 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education. The resolution called the decision "a clear abuse of judicial power" and encouraged states to resist implementing its mandates. In response to Southern opposition, in 1958 the Court revisited the Brown decision in Cooper v. Aaron, asserting that the states were bound by the ruling and affirming that its interpretation of the Constitution was the "supreme law of the land."
    Signed by:

    Members of the United States Senate:

    Alabama-John Sparkman and Lister Hill.

    Arkansas-J. W. Fulbright and John L. McClellan.

    Florida-George A. Smathers and Spessard L. Holland.

    Georgia-Walter F. George and Richard B. Russell.

    Louisiana-Allen J. Ellender and Russell B. Lono.

    Mississippi-John Stennis and James O. Eastland.

    North Carolina-Sam J. Ervin Jr. and W. Kerr Scott.

    South Carolina-Strom Thurmon and Olin D. Johnston.

    Texas-Price Daniel.

    Virginia-Harry F. Bird and A. Willis Robertson. "
    The Supreme Court . Expanding Civil Rights . Primary Sources | PBS


    That was from PBS. "Public Broadcasting Service"? No...the Political Broadcasting Service....serving one particular party.


    …did you notice the party of the signers? Wonder why not?
    Anyone doubt that hiding the party of Democrats when related to slavery and segregation is a practiced art?

    Look for the same behavior in most of the main stream media.



    From NPR:

    2. It is widely referred to as the Southern Manifesto advocating continued segregation. Nearly every leading member of Congress from the South signs it. But the organizers decide to exclude Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson and House Speaker Sam Rayburn, both of Texas, because they don't want the national party to be linked to their efforts. On This Day In 1956: 'Southern Manifesto' On Race Signed By 100 : It's All Politics : NPR


    No wonder so many believe that it is the Republicans that are the party of racism....because that is the implication in many subtle and not so subtle ways.
    Brainwashing by omission of important facts.

    Here is what the original story should have looked like-

    3. Signatories:
     John Sparkman (D-Alabama)
     Lister Hill (D-Alabama)
     William Fulbright (D-Arkansas)[1]
     John L. McClellan (D-Arkansas)
     George A. Smathers (D-Florida)
     Spessard Holland (D-Florida)
     Walter F. George (D-Georgia)
     Richard B. Russell (D-Georgia)
     Allen J. Ellender (D-Louisiana)
     Russell B. Long (D-Louisiana)
     James O. Eastland (D-Mississippi)
     John Stennis (D-Mississippi)
     Samuel Ervin (D-North Carolina)
     W. Kerr Scott (D-North Carolina)
     Strom Thurmond (D-South Carolina)[1]
     Olin D. Johnston (D-South Carolina)
     Price Daniel (D-Texas)
     Harry F. Byrd (D-Virginia) [1]
     A. Willis Robertson (D-Virginia)
     Southern Manifesto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    The is the real benefit the Left accrues from controlling the dissemination of information.
    And when asked why huge percentages of black Americans still vote for the party of slavery and segregation....the above is major reason.




    3. BTW...

    "Three years after Brown, President Eisenhower won passage of his landmark Civil Rights Act of 1957. Republican Senator Everett Dirksen authored and introduced the 1960 Civil Rights Act, and saw it through to passage. Republicans supported the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act overwhelmingly, and by much higher percentages in both House and Senate than the Democrats. Indeed, the 1964 Civil Rights Act became law only after overcoming a Democrat filibuster."

    Oh sweet jesus on the cross, here we go again...

    ...this worn out canard, with, btw, its racist premise that black Americans are too stupid to realize that they're voting for - in 2012 - racist Democrats,

    like Barack Obama.

    Point #1 - The Conservative Coalition:

    "...the conservative coalition was an unofficial Congressional coalition bringing together the conservative majority of the Republican Party and the conservative, mostly Southern, wing of the Democratic Party. It was dominant in Congress from 1937 to 1963 and remained a political force until the mid 1980s, eventually dying out in the 1990s...."

    Read on here:

    Conservative coalition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Or let me sum it up for you. The anti-civil rights faction of the US that was a significant factor in politics in the early/mid 20th century was a

    CONSERVATIVE faction,

    made up of CONSERVATIVE Republicans and CONSERVATIVE Democrats.

    The face of racism was in that era the face of CONSERVATISM, and that CONSERVATISM existed in both parties;

    that's why they called it a coalition.

    And take note of the last lines in the link:

    "With the "Reagan Revolution" of the 1980s and the "Republican Revolution" in 1994, Republicans took control of most conservative Southern districts, replacing many conservative Democratic congressmen with Republicans. A few Congressmen switched parties. Thus the Southern Democratic element of the conservative coalition gradually faded."

    We'll see if anyone is obstinate enough to need more than point 1.

    1. How very nice to see you praying on Sunday morning.
    Amen.


    2. Possibly. in submission to religious fervor, you overlooked the very OP to which you were, ostensibly, responding...

    ...as you didn't either address the OP, nor rebut same.....

    ...you are subscribing to its import?


    Well, then, ...

    ....another 'Amen!'



    Good to see learning finally taking hold.

    Thank you, PoliticalChic, for shedding light on this unfortunate obfuscation technique being employed all over by Democrats, eager to foist extreme views on America. We have been warned to resist this dalliance of lying and obfuscation by omission by a man who's "been there done that," so to speak:

    Sorry to share such a horrifying view, but here's the scoop from the horse's mouth, Ex-KGB Director, Yuri Bezmenov, who defected to teh USA some time ago:

    Thanks, nycarbineer for making PoliticalChic's case by actually obfuscating the thread topic which is all about Obama's obfuscation in particular. :rolleyes:

    So you noticed the change of subject too while I was researching.

    Some on the left would rather not think about it.

    Others are becoming righties when they realize the level of omissions rising to the level of blatant obfuscation.

    Since you can't refute what I said, which demolishes every claim and premise in your OP,

    you're going to claim I'm changing the subject?

    Democrats who opposed civil rights in the 50's and 60's were CONSERVATIVES, period.

    If you can name any CONSERVATIVE Democrats in the current Congress, or the current administration,

    who are sympathetic to, or in any way support, the past sentiments and positions of the Democrats in the Conservative Coalition of 50 or so years ago,

    by all means,

    NAME THEM.

    I'm going to guess that your list will be very very close to zero.

    Prove me wrong.

    Can you name any current Democrats who support Barry Goldwater's past position that on the issue of race,

    state's rights should trump civil rights? That our Constitution does not have jurisdiction over the protection of equal rights among races?

    Because that was Goldwater's position. Name any current Democrats that agree with him.

    We will never solve the horrific issue of racism until we all stop using it as a political weapon to beat the opposition. True story.

    Choose which is more important. Your party or your county. Not rocket science.

    You're obfuscating. :offtopic:

    This thread is not about Barry Goldwater, it's about your current party's "Omission: Political 'Brainwashing'"
