    These are the very same people that is in the house and senate right now and are Liberal Dem's.
    Lead by Al Sharpton and Rev. Jackson back in the 60's

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzEX1GzS_-c]WASHINGTON, D.C. ENGINE CO. 4, "1960's" - YouTube[/ame]

    The film is taken from actual footage of the devastation but the music is War that hit the charts in 1970.

    Why do you Dem's want these hateful people representing you?
    All they have ever wanted is power and control over you.

    The 60's was a time in which young peope rebelled against the 50's style repression of women, minorites, and goody goody morality. It was naive...but they weren't hateful, controlling, evil people.

    I think that conservative media has taken it's toll on your objectivity and ability to understand the motives of the people you think are terrible.

    People are people....every group of ten people, in any place on the earth are the same. There will be 5 ordinary people who just want to work and live, 1 criminal, 1 saint, 1 leader, 1 dreamer, and 1 loser.

    Yes, but apparently you don't.

    Those riots were a reaction to the assassination of MLK.

    Maybe you should try to explain your point a little better.

    And then explain who in congress was involved in the riots.

    While those on the Right sit and wring their hands over some potential civil unrest, they have forgotten the motivations for the unrest of the 1960s. One motivation was the lack of civil rights protection. It seems there were social conservatives in the south unwilling to loose the reigns of power and grant African Americans the simple civil rights we take for granted today.

    Another motivation was the draft. The meat grinder that was Vietnam took some of the best and brightest away to fight in that protracted and ultimately unwinnable war. Imagine if we had a draftee military today. Would people sit back and be as relatively indifferent to the two, protracted and ultimately unwinnable wars in Iraq and Afghanistan after ten years of combat and loss?

    They were destructive rioters that destroyed public and private property and are now your wonderful controller's, that has destroyed this nation with their unsustainable social programs
    I am talking about all socialists be they Repubs or Dems.

    I watched that on TV when it actually happened and it had nothing to do with conservative media of today.

    They have never been peaceful protesters and have always been dividers of Americans by labels.
    And their destruction of property did not end the Viet Nam War. The fall of Saigon did.

    The riots weren't led by anyone. They just happened. Back then niether Jackson nor Sharpton were leaders, anyway. So the OP is an EPIC FAIL!!!

    Those conservatives you speak of back in the 60s were Democrats. They couldn't keep the Civil Rights law from passing so now they are attempting to control the blacks by convincing them they can't be successful and they need THEM (the Democrats) to take care of them. The blacks who ignore this advice and make something of themselves are Republican.
