Here’s an example of an alternative fact that will (hopefully) make you think. FACT: LBJ signed the 1964 Civil Rights act thus ending Jim Crow laws. With that signature and the photo of Dr. King looking on as LBJ did so, the Democrat party draped itself in the mantle of the party of civil rights. ALTERNATIVE FACT: The vast majority of Congressional Democrats voted against the Civil Rights Act. Without the Republicans in the House and the Senate, that bill would have never made it to the President’s desk.
