“and fought against the Civil Rights Act”
You mean like Barry Goldwater did? And Ronald Reagan? And William F Buckley?
This new love for trying to outdo the Democrat Left in virtue signalling is remarkable for its stupidity, unless your goal is to reinforce their condemnation of 1960s conservatives for opposing the 1965 Civil Rights Act.
Im bushogging in 95 degree sticky heat listening to Europe 72
I was going to respond but havent the time
Bashing Dixiecrats and pimping Lowell Weicker and Rockefeller and Javier is simply too easy to refute
If youre actually a conservative
And it goes on
Democrat run cities all in shambles?
Well no I live in one that runs fairly well
Its demographics though Dems just make it worse
And those vaunted civil rights acts
Werent they just great
Freepers just run on gut
Its like not reading headlines
Ape Dinesh Shapiro Levin and Sean and alls well
These are talking point talk radio people
And they are wrong too
1960s era civil rights laws typically passed Congress with overwhelming majorities of both parties support.
In both parties Northern Congressmen voted nearly 100% for the new laws and Southerners nearly 100% opposed.
Since nearly all Southerners then were Democrats, they made Democrat majorities smaller than Republicans'.
Those non-Southern Republicans (such as you mention here) who opposed some of the new laws did so on grounds that businesses should be able to choose their customers.
None in my memory continued opposition once the laws had passed.
Barry Goldwater, iirc, ended his career in a much different key than his song in 1964.
