On June 10, 1964, Everett Dirksen (R-IL), the Republican Leader in the U.S. Senate, condemned the Democrats 57-day filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Leading the Democrats in their opposition to civil rights for African-Americans was Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV), who got into politics as a recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan. At 9:51 on the morning of June 10, 1964, Senator Byrd completed an address that he had begun 14 hours and 13 minutes earlier.
Democrats still call Robert Byrd the conscience of the Senate.

And Senator Al Gore, Sr., Democrat from Tennessee voted against it.
Why Republicans never hang overt racism around the necks of Demoncrats kills me. We have enough fodder to last a lifetime! Robert KKK Bird is their conscience...LOL!
On June 10, 1964, Democrats’ 57-day filibuster of the Civil Rights Act ended. In spite of this, the democrats still juke the black people into voting for them. Kinda sad, isn’t it?
Exactly. From pre-Civil War slavery to the 13-15th Amendments, to Woodrow Wilson, the Klanbake, the Civil Rights era, Robert Byrd, abortion mills in black neighborhoods . . . all point to historic Democratic racism that the GOP should pound at every opportunity.
