How stereotypically American are you?

I scored an 86. lol

"You’re as American as bald eagles, the stars and stripes, fireworks, and the Statue of Liberty. You’re most likely related to John Wayne and George Washington. You probably started a “U-S-A” chant while you were still in the womb. You did your taxes on time, and you bleed Budweiser."

It is amazing how ignorant Americans are on the history of racism in America. They actually believe the opposite of the truth. Educate yourself.

Do your homework, there was a diametric flip in political core values of the parties in the 50’s. the ethos of the democrats in history that started the KKK are now those of the republican party, and same goes the other way, core values and ethos of the people who ended slavery would be aligned with the current core values and ethos of the democratic party. While the bumper sticker is technically accurate, it fails to take into account political history, and is terribly misleading about core values and ethos of the current parties.

Before I point you to some data, would you care to provide sources and data for your claim?

Yeah, sure, history, try studying it, start at Abe Lincoln, and his time, research the party core values, the ethos of each party and work your way to modern day, pay special attention to the 30’s through 60’s of the last century, rather than rely on parroted crap from radical blogs.

Before I go on, I’d like you to point out to me specific cases in which any member of the Republican party has demonstrated even the slightest tendency to atittudes that are objectively racist just like those of Democrats until the time you mentioned.

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population….

So the next time any Democrat claims they’ve been supportive of civil rights in America (and been so all along), ask them to explain their past. “We’ve grown” is not gonna cut it, considering they continue to lie about their past to this day, and only someone lacking in common sense would believe two distinct political parties could juxtaposition their stances on civil rights seemingly overnight.And I’m tired of the recitation that Southern Democrats became racist Republicans and took those tendencies with them. Even today, it never takes long for a Democrat to play the race card purely for political advantage.Don’t forget either, what  Lyndon Johnson(Democrat) said to a group of governors, after he signed it into law; “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”Below are more quotes from the Democrats on how they really feel.
“You’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.”- Senator Fritz Hollings
Blacks and Hispanics are “too busy eating watermelons and tacos” to learn how to read and write.”- Mike Wallace
“In the days of slavery, there were those slaves who lived on the plantation and [there] were those slaves that lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master … exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him. Colin Powell’s committed to come into the house of the master. When Colin Powell dares to suggest something other than what the master wants to hear, he will be turned back out to pasture.”- Harry Belafonte
“A handkerchief-head, chicken-and-biscuit-eating Uncle Tom.”- Spike Lee referring to Clarence Thomas
“Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”- Robert Byrd
“I am a former kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County and the adjoining counties of the state …. The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia …. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state of the Union. Will you please inform me as to the possibilities of rebuilding the Klan in the Realm of W. Va …. I hope that you will find it convenient to answer my letter in regards to future possibilities.”- Robert Byrd
“You f*cking Jew b@stard.”- Hillary Clinton
‘Hymietown.’- Jesse Jackson describing New York City
“Jews — that’s J-E-W-S.”- State Senator Bill McKinney explaining why his daughter Cynthia lost in 2002
“Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them.”- Mary Frances Berry, Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights
The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the lake of fire prepared for him from the beginning, that he never rise again to give any innocent black man, woman or child the hell that he has delighted in pouring on us for 400 years.”- Louis Farrakhan
“White folks was in caves while we was building empires… We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”- Rev. Al Sharpton
“The white race is the cancer of human history.”- Susan Sontag
These negros, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they’ve never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness.- LBJ
“I am not going to use the federal government’s authority deliberately to circumvent the natural inclination of people to live in ethnic homogeneous neighborhoods.”- Jimmy Carter
I mean, you’ve got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”- Joe Biden (referring to Barack Obama)https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=e1Mq8kOXV_Ehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=sM19YOqs7hUSo again, thank a Republican, for without them, the Civil Rights Act would never have to come fruition without them. The Democrats you so faithfully vote for, despise everything about you, except for when it comes time for you to cast a vote….for 
Now that I have addressed this, tell me how a party whose agenda and policies have stagnated, empoverished and outright killed black people even today is not in any way similar to that that founded the KKK? Just because the way black people are being harmed by Democrats has changed from open to veiled harm doesn’t mean no harm is being done. 
Here’s evil self-hating Thomas Sowell pointing out how minimum wage(which Democrats have a hard on for) is racist and harms minorities. 
Take a look at this, as well.
Your turn. 

I’ll take my “turn” when you can formulate a coherent reply in your own words without having to rely on parroting, cut and past replies from a far right blog….I think i will be waiting a good long while somehow, I don’t think you are capable of a coherent reply without parroting from a radical blog, also, love how all the “ammunition” you have that the dems are racist all come before the mentioned shift in party core values in the mid 60’s, interesting how that works, that just supports what I have said, I never claimed that the dems were not a racist party before the mid 60’s in fact, I said the opposite. Thanks for giving the evidence that backs up what I said. In the south in the era of the civil rights movement, it was democrats who were the ones blocking the doors to public schools to prevent blacks from entering, until the democratic party stopped pandering to the south, and pushed through the civil rights act, in fact, it was LBJ who conviced the democratic controlled congress to pass the act, knowing that the democrats would lose influence int he south, that is the major catalyst I was refering too, that is when the south flipped, go back 100 years, the south was predominately democrat, now it is predominately republican, and has been since the late 60’s as a result of the civil rights act being passed by a democratic congress, and signed into law by a democrat president, LBJ.Funny how there’s no mention of the fact that it was a democratic bill fashioned by liberal and moderate democrats (from northern states) and that the only democrats that fought the bill were conservative southern democrats (A.K.A. Dixie-Crats). And where are those racist Dixie-Crats today? They left the Democratic Party and those like Strom Thurman became Republicans. Why? Because they were pissed off that the bill was able to pass. And that my winger friends is why the GOP is filled to the hilt with racists today. Why mention the obvious (that the majority party control what bills get introduced).

I’ll make this short and sweet and please do correct me on the names and dates if you can
Here’s the full list of Dixiecrats and the party they went to.

Note: Under your argument republicans are racist because the Dixiecrats went to that party. Now that we find out that most all Dixiecrats went back to the Democratic party is your argument now that most Democrats are racist my left wing friend.

I am just happy and elated thispointoflight is scared of me and my so called far right blog. Odd though, I see my blog as nothing but truth. Of course in typical Libtard fashion, thispointoflight provides nothing to back up their obviously wrong claims, which is always proof that they have none.  That is why they scream racism when confronted directly. It means they are spineless cowards with no debating skills and an obvious lack of research skills and education, but I digress. I shall simply post the truth, whether they like it or not.The left is quite annoyed that myself and others dare link the racist, segregationist past in this country to Democrats, at that flies in the face of everything they claim to champion, when it comes to civil rights, racial tolerance, etc.
The Democrats’ own website, to this day, attempts to take fraudulently credit for the civil rights movement and legislation, and when called on it, the recitation is the same: “we’ve grown” and “don’t forget about the Dixiecrats”.
Defensive liberals claim the Dixiecrats, as a whole, defected from the Democrat Party when President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (no thanks to Democrats), and became Republicans which they claimed were more accepting of segregationist policies.
Well, I decided to get some opinions on the matter from some historians.
I contacted Professor Larry Schweikart of the University of Dayton for advice. Larry and I worked on a documentary based on a chapter on Ronald Reagan from his best-selling book, A Patriot’s History of the United States.

The idea that “the Dixiecrats joined the Republicans” is not quite true, as you note. But because of Strom Thurmond it is accepted as a fact. What happened is that the **next** generation (post 1965) of white southern politicians — Newt, Trent Lott, Ashcroft, Cochran, Alexander, etc — joined the GOP.
So it was really a passing of the torch as the old segregationists retired and were replaced by new young GOP guys. One particularly galling aspect to generalizations about “segregationists became GOP” is that the new GOP South was INTEGRATED for crying out loud, they accepted the Civil Rights revolution. Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter led a group of what would become “New” Democrats like Clinton and Al Gore.

Larry also suggested I contact Mike Allen, Professor of History at the University of Washington, Tacoma (who also appeared in the Reagan documentary) for input.

There weren’t many Republicans in the South prior to 1964, but that doesn’t mean the birth of the souther GOP was tied to “white racism.” That said, I am sure there were and are white racist southern GOP. No one would deny that. But it was the southern Democrats who were the party of slavery and, later, segregation. It was George Wallace, not John Tower, who stood in the southern schoolhouse door to block desegregation! The vast majority of Congressional GOP voted FOR the Civil Rights of 1964-65. The vast majority of those opposed to those acts were southern Democrats. Southern Democrats led to infamous filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
The confusion arises from GOP Barry Goldwater’s vote against the ’64 act. He had voted in favor or all earlier bills and had led the integration of the Arizona Air National Guard, but he didn’t like the “private property” aspects of the ’64 law. In other words, Goldwater believed people’s private businesses and private clubs were subject only to market forces, not government mandates (“We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.”) His vote against the Civil Rights Act was because of that one provision was, to my mind, a principled mistake.
This stance is what won Goldwater the South in 1964, and no doubt many racists voted for Goldwater in the mistaken belief that he opposed Negro Civil Rights. But Goldwater was not a racist; he was a libertarian who favored both civil rights and property rights.
Switch to 1968.
Richard Nixon was also a proponent of Civil Rights; it was a CA colleague who urged Ike to appoint Warren to the Supreme Court; he was a supporter of  Brown v. Board, and favored sending troops to integrate Little Rock High). Nixon saw he could develop a “Southern strategy” based on Goldwater’s inroads. He did, but Independent Democrat George Wallace carried most of the deep south in 68. By 1972, however, Wallace was shot and paralyzed, and Nixon began to tilt the south to the GOP. The old guard Democrats began to fade away while a new generation of Southern politicians became Republicans. True, Strom Thurmond switched to GOP, but most of the old timers (Fulbright, Gore, Wallace, Byrd etc etc) retired as Dems.
Why did a new generation white Southerners join the GOP? Not because they thought Republicans were racists who would return the South to segregation, but because the GOP was a “local government, small government” party in the old Jeffersonian tradition. Southerners wanted less government and the GOP was their natural home.
Jimmy Carter, a Civil Rights Democrat, briefly returned some states to the Democrat fold, but in 1980, Goldwater’s heir, Ronald Reagan, sealed this deal for the GOP. The new ”Solid South” was solid GOP.
BUT, and we must stress this: the new southern Republicans were *integrationist* Republicans who accepted the Civil Rights revolution and full integration while retaining their love of Jeffersonian limited government principles.Keep in mind, the above was written by an educated black man too.http://www.black-and-right.com/2010/03/19/the-dixiecrat-myth/

So the next time any Democrat claims they’ve been supportive of civil rights in America (and been so all along), ask them to explain their past. “We’ve grown” is not gonna cut it, considering they continue to lie about their past to this day, and only someone lacking in common sense would believe two distinct political parties could juxtaposition their stances on civil rights seemingly overnight.

And I’m tired of the recitation that Southern Democrats became racist Republicans and took those tendencies with them. Even today, it never takes long for a Democrat to play the race card purely for political advantage.

Don’t forget either, what  Lyndon Johnson(Democrat) said to a group of governors, after he signed it into law; “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”

Below are more quotes from the Democrats on how they really feel.

“You’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.”
- Senator Fritz Hollings

Blacks and Hispanics are “too busy eating watermelons and tacos” to learn how to read and write.”
- Mike Wallace

“In the days of slavery, there were those slaves who lived on the plantation and [there] were those slaves that lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master … exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him. Colin Powell’s committed to come into the house of the master. When Colin Powell dares to suggest something other than what the master wants to hear, he will be turned back out to pasture.”
- Harry Belafonte

“A handkerchief-head, chicken-and-biscuit-eating Uncle Tom.”
- Spike Lee referring to Clarence Thomas

“Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
- Robert Byrd

“I am a former kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County and the adjoining counties of the state …. The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia …. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state of the Union. Will you please inform me as to the possibilities of rebuilding the Klan in the Realm of W. Va …. I hope that you will find it convenient to answer my letter in regards to future possibilities.”
- Robert Byrd

“You f*cking Jew b@stard.”
- Hillary Clinton

‘Hymietown.’
- Jesse Jackson describing New York City

“Jews — that’s J-E-W-S.”
- State Senator Bill McKinney explaining why his daughter Cynthia lost in 2002

“Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them.”
- Mary Frances Berry, Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights

The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the lake of fire prepared for him from the beginning, that he never rise again to give any innocent black man, woman or child the hell that he has delighted in pouring on us for 400 years.”
- Louis Farrakhan

“White folks was in caves while we was building empires… We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”
- Rev. Al Sharpton

“The white race is the cancer of human history.”
- Susan Sontag

These negros, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they’ve never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness.
- LBJ

“I am not going to use the federal government’s authority deliberately to circumvent the natural inclination of people to live in ethnic homogeneous neighborhoods.”
- Jimmy Carter

I mean, you’ve got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
- Joe Biden (referring to Barack Obama)

So again, thank a Republican, for without them, the Civil Rights Act would never have to come fruition without them. The Democrats you so faithfully vote for, despise everything about you, except for when it comes time for you to cast a vote….for 

Now that I have addressed this, tell me how a party whose agenda and policies have stagnated, empoverished and outright killed black people even today is not in any way similar to that that founded the KKK? Just because the way black people are being harmed by Democrats has changed from open to veiled harm doesn’t mean no harm is being done. 

Here’s evil self-hating Thomas Sowell pointing out how minimum wage(which Democrats have a hard on for) is racist and harms minorities. 

Take a look at this, as well.

Your turn. 

I’ll take my “turn” when you can formulate a coherent reply in your own words without having to rely on parroting, cut and past replies from a far right blog….

I think i will be waiting a good long while somehow, I don’t think you are capable of a coherent reply without parroting from a radical blog, also, love how all the “ammunition” you have that the dems are racist all come before the mentioned shift in party core values in the mid 60’s, interesting how that works, that just supports what I have said, I never claimed that the dems were not a racist party before the mid 60’s in fact, I said the opposite. Thanks for giving the evidence that backs up what I said.

In the south in the era of the civil rights movement, it was democrats who were the ones blocking the doors to public schools to prevent blacks from entering, until the democratic party stopped pandering to the south, and pushed through the civil rights act, in fact, it was LBJ who conviced the democratic controlled congress to pass the act, knowing that the democrats would lose influence int he south, that is the major catalyst I was refering too, that is when the south flipped, go back 100 years, the south was predominately democrat, now it is predominately republican, and has been since the late 60’s as a result of the civil rights act being passed by a democratic congress, and signed into law by a democrat president, LBJ.

Funny how there’s no mention of the fact that it was a democratic bill fashioned by liberal and moderate democrats (from northern states) and that the only democrats that fought the bill were conservative southern democrats (A.K.A. Dixie-Crats). And where are those racist Dixie-Crats today? They left the Democratic Party and those like Strom Thurman became Republicans. Why? Because they were pissed off that the bill was able to pass. And that my winger friends is why the GOP is filled to the hilt with racists today. Why mention the obvious (that the majority party control what bills get introduced).

I’ll make this short and sweet and please do correct me on the names and dates if you can

Here’s the full list of Dixiecrats and the party they went to.

Just wondering are these your Democratic friends?

Racist Hate From Liberal Lefties in Wisconsin (la…: http://youtu.be/SPcpW-wQpB0

Note: Under your argument republicans are racist because the Dixiecrats went to that party. Now that we find out that most all Dixiecrats went back to the Democratic party is your argument now that most Democrats are racist my left wing friend.

I am just happy and elated thispointoflight is scared of me and my so called far right blog. Odd though, I see my blog as nothing but truth. Of course in typical Libtard fashion, thispointoflight provides nothing to back up their obviously wrong claims, which is always proof that they have none.  That is why they scream racism when confronted directly. It means they are spineless cowards with no debating skills and an obvious lack of research skills and education, but I digress. I shall simply post the truth, whether they like it or not.

The left is quite annoyed that myself and others dare link the racist, segregationist past in this country to Democrats, at that flies in the face of everything they claim to champion, when it comes to civil rights, racial tolerance, etc.

The Democrats’ own website, to this day, attempts to take fraudulently credit for the civil rights movement and legislation, and when called on it, the recitation is the same: “we’ve grown” and “don’t forget about the Dixiecrats”.

Defensive liberals claim the Dixiecrats, as a whole, defected from the Democrat Party when President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (no thanks to Democrats), and became Republicans which they claimed were more accepting of segregationist policies.

Well, I decided to get some opinions on the matter from some historians.

I contacted Professor Larry Schweikart of the University of Dayton for advice. Larry and I worked on a documentary based on a chapter on Ronald Reagan from his best-selling book, A Patriot’s History of the United States.

The idea that “the Dixiecrats joined the Republicans” is not quite true, as you note. But because of Strom Thurmond it is accepted as a fact. What happened is that the **next** generation (post 1965) of white southern politicians — Newt, Trent Lott, Ashcroft, Cochran, Alexander, etc — joined the GOP.

So it was really a passing of the torch as the old segregationists retired and were replaced by new young GOP guys. One particularly galling aspect to generalizations about “segregationists became GOP” is that the new GOP South was INTEGRATED for crying out loud, they accepted the Civil Rights revolution. Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter led a group of what would become “New” Democrats like Clinton and Al Gore.

Larry also suggested I contact Mike Allen, Professor of History at the University of Washington, Tacoma (who also appeared in the Reagan documentary) for input.

There weren’t many Republicans in the South prior to 1964, but that doesn’t mean the birth of the souther GOP was tied to “white racism.” That said, I am sure there were and are white racist southern GOP. No one would deny that. But it was the southern Democrats who were the party of slavery and, later, segregation. It was George Wallace, not John Tower, who stood in the southern schoolhouse door to block desegregation! The vast majority of Congressional GOP voted FOR the Civil Rights of 1964-65. The vast majority of those opposed to those acts were southern Democrats. Southern Democrats led to infamous filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

The confusion arises from GOP Barry Goldwater’s vote against the ’64 act. He had voted in favor or all earlier bills and had led the integration of the Arizona Air National Guard, but he didn’t like the “private property” aspects of the ’64 law. In other words, Goldwater believed people’s private businesses and private clubs were subject only to market forces, not government mandates (“We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.”) His vote against the Civil Rights Act was because of that one provision was, to my mind, a principled mistake.

This stance is what won Goldwater the South in 1964, and no doubt many racists voted for Goldwater in the mistaken belief that he opposed Negro Civil Rights. But Goldwater was not a racist; he was a libertarian who favored both civil rights and property rights.

Switch to 1968.

Richard Nixon was also a proponent of Civil Rights; it was a CA colleague who urged Ike to appoint Warren to the Supreme Court; he was a supporter of  Brown v. Board, and favored sending troops to integrate Little Rock High). Nixon saw he could develop a “Southern strategy” based on Goldwater’s inroads. He did, but Independent Democrat George Wallace carried most of the deep south in 68. By 1972, however, Wallace was shot and paralyzed, and Nixon began to tilt the south to the GOP. The old guard Democrats began to fade away while a new generation of Southern politicians became Republicans. True, Strom Thurmond switched to GOP, but most of the old timers (Fulbright, Gore, Wallace, Byrd etc etc) retired as Dems.

Why did a new generation white Southerners join the GOP? Not because they thought Republicans were racists who would return the South to segregation, but because the GOP was a “local government, small government” party in the old Jeffersonian tradition. Southerners wanted less government and the GOP was their natural home.

Jimmy Carter, a Civil Rights Democrat, briefly returned some states to the Democrat fold, but in 1980, Goldwater’s heir, Ronald Reagan, sealed this deal for the GOP. The new ”Solid South” was solid GOP.

BUT, and we must stress this: the new southern Republicans were *integrationist* Republicans who accepted the Civil Rights revolution and full integration while retaining their love of Jeffersonian limited government principles.
Keep in mind, the above was written by an educated black man too.
