    Ok, there are people on here who want to claim libs are responsible for everything good since marshmallow creme, but the truth is, the Democratic party in the south, NOT the Republican party, is the party that fought civil rights for so long.

    The Republican Party was created for abolitionists, by abolitionists. The Democratic Party was responsible for the "Redemption" of 1873-77, where white Southern Democrats ("Redeemers") defeated Republicans, took control of the Southern states, and began to take away rights from blacks.

    Democrats were pro-slavery, democrats then (as now) objected to equality, and were responsible for Jim Crow.

    Democrats are the reason the south was such a mess in the 60s, when Martin Luther King, Jr. and activists began their protests.

    With regards to "black rule", here is the history of that:

    When the South was conquered, and supported by the Military Reconstruction Act (1867) the southern state governments were replaced based on a Republican coalition of freedmen...."carpetbaggers and scalaways" per Wiki.

    Carpetbaggers were Northerners who moved to the South between 1865-77. They formed a coalition with freed slaves and "scalawags" (Southern whites who espoused the reconstruction) and in turn controleed the confederate states.

    Are you getting a picture? People were kicked out of southern political and economic offices, and positions of power were filled by northerners, southern traitors and blacks. The south retaliated with the KKK and the "Redeemers" and again took rights away from blacks in those states.

    If they were terrorists, some would say they were justified!

    Now you know, and you'll know better than to scoff at historical references when you have no knowledge of what you're scoffing at.

    Actually, since the North won the war, I don't think that the southerners you are referring to would be classified as "traitors." Maybe all the other southerners, but not them.

    Yes, times change, and the Democrats that were bigots, left the Democratic Party when Strom Thurmond ran for President as a DixieCrat, after the losses of the Dixicrats they JOINED the REPUBLICAN party, in the South...

    Didn't you know this....?

    They were traitors to the Confederacy.

    Is that all you have to say?

    I knew it. Libs on this site didn't.

    Just because they ran to the Republican Party doesn't mean anything. They just tainted us as well.

    The fact is, liberal policies and democratic policies are racist policies. I'm tired of the left insisting otherwise, and LYING about our history, and the history of racist policy, particularly in the South.

    Nothing at all. Just continue to ask stupid questions which have obvious answers, if it makes you feel good.

    You must get so excited when you realize that you know something.

    I didn't ask a question. I just pointed out that who precisely was a "traitor" depends on the context.

    It's called "diverting". Don't focus on the topic, instead use techniques meant to distract. It's annoying.
