    A myth about conservatism is circulating in academia and journalism and has spread to the 2004 presidential campaign. It goes something like this: the Republican Party assembled a national majority by winning over Southern white voters; Southern white voters are racist; therefore, the GOP is racist. Sometimes the conclusion is softened, and Republicans are convicted merely of base opportunism: the GOP is the party that became willing to pander to racists. Either way, today's Republican Party—and by extension the conservative movement at its heart—supposedly has revealed something terrible about itself.

    Repubs oppose affirmative action so they are obviously anti-racist. Guess what that makes dems.

    Ever since Nixon. They called it the Southern strategy. Previously liberal Republicans were on the forefront of the Civil Rights movement, but that changed in the 70s as they courted racist Democrats and drove the liberals out of the party. THAT'S history, folks. I watched it happen. I used to occasionally vote for a Republican, but that hasn't happened in a long time. It IS something terrible and something they going to have to deal with and change, if they hope to ever win a national election again. They did it again this year by alienating Hispanics. Will they ever learn? You don't create Reagan's Big Tent by demeaning vast segments of the population

    Hahaha you fucking hypocrite. This post is so full of shit. This op is rock fucking dumb. Also wrong the south has voted conservative ever since the 13 colonies were given the right to vote. He'll they fought a war to keep slavery, they had Jimenez Crowe, they had segregation, do you need me to keep going, they vote for what ever party represents them, right now, it's the GOP and it has been the GOP for 35 years.

    Pure BS, read the article. Liberals may have left the Republican party but it wasn't because of racism it was because they are godless.

    Bullshit.

    Plain and simple.

    You keep lying though. Give it. :D

    That's for another day. Why do you keep lying? I find that fascinating.
