    Clark, in the 60’s the far right was represented by entities such as the Ku Klux Klan, whose members were largely Democrats. Some of those Klan leaders (or “Exalted Cyclops”) were elected to public office, where they voted against every black nomination to the Supreme Court (including Justice Marshall) and filibustered to block progressive human rights legislation.

    The KKK was the political action wing of the democratic party targeting blacks, catholics and Republicans. Can you say senator bird? The democrats only started being the minorities “friend” when they realised that they could use their votes to maintain their power. Wallace and the rest were all democrats. Before you outraged liberals start screaming look it up. It is a fact.

    Uh oh, mightaswellbe is indulging in that well known liberal vice known as “facts”. Hide the children.

    @ mightaswellbe, that’s how I remember it too, and I was old enough that I think I remember it correctly.

    mighaswellbe is right

    they were called “Dixiecrats” back then and they bore no resemblance to the Dems of the rest of the country at all.

    I’m really old enough to remember

    The “solid south” was solidly Democrat and solidly segregationist from the end of reconstruction through about 1948, (Remember, Lincoln was a Republican) then the right wing tried splitting off the first time as the Dixiecrats, They came back to the party weaker, and by ‘61 they were able to sucessfully run a Catholic for president. That wouldn’t have happened 12 years earlier. I think the event that sealed the Dems fate as being the liberal/civil rights party was the Chicago National Convention in 68, where all he!! broke loose.

    fb/Chris: You are referring to Dixiecrats who are no Republicans. times change, parties change, evil hearts remain the same. And they left because the dems voted in JFK (an evil catholic) and one of their own passed civil rights laws.

    rick: it doesn’t matter. You wouldn’t remember what happened afterward anyway.

    Wesleyan’s president must be plotzing. At least, I hope so. What a humorless jerk! I thought a key ingredient in intelligence is humor, even whimsy.

    I guess the president of Wesleyan is one of those life-is-real-life-is-earnest types who always lead their constituents off the deep end.

    It’s funny to read all of these comments from so many two-dimensional or even one-dimensional thinkers and juxtapose it with the storyline they seem to be trying to keep up with.

    Yawl a funny bunch!

    legacyshooter, even one dimension is better than none. You may not agree with what others have said, but you yourself said nothing at all.

    Radfish, are you suggesting that RNC Chairman Michael Steele has trouble with white males?
