If nor for Republicans the racist Dimwingers would have successfully killed the CRA.What did I say that was ridiculous? It wasn't a claim...it's historic fact.Your ridiculous claimwhat do you have a question about??there was no Dixiecrats in 1965.....the Dixiecrats were created in 1948 by some dems, to run against Truman, they dissolved that same year, and where welcomed back in the party by 1952...with open arms...the Dems even nominated one of them as VPtrying to conflate the Dem party of today with the Dixiecrats of 1965 and before is stupid and dishonest.
Those Dixiecrats are now solidly Republicans
Ever hear of the “Solid South”?
Yes the Dems had the South...solidly for decades...it started to break apart after years of GOP pushing of Civil Rights legislation got through...amazing once the Dems were no longer to oppress votes..things slowly turned around...now the South is no longer a oppressive poor regime and we are starting to see a strong economy...and a lot of migration to the south.
Can you point to a single piece of Civil Rights Legislation that was passed by a Republican Congress, or promoted by a Republican President. I googled it and I could find a single piece of Civil Rights Legislation since 1932 that was promoted by a Republican President, or passed by a Republican Congress.
I higher percentage of Republicans in Congress voted for the CRA than Dimwingers.
100% of Northern Democrats and Northern Republicans voted for the CRA. The same cannot be said for Southern Republicans. 100% of Southern Democrats voted against it, and 34 Southern Republicans voted against it in the House, 6 Republican Senators in the Senate. While enough Southern Republicans voted in favour of the CRA, to ensure its passage, there was a substantial portion of the Southern politicians on both sides of the aisle who voted against it, and after the passage of the CRA, nearly all of those Democrats became Republicans and that continues to this day.
