[quote=Casual Fan;280734]Lincoln was a racist and a bigot, and freeing the slaves was a political ploy. And the man who ended the "Little Rock Nine" stalemate was the mayor of Little Rock, Arkansas, a Democrat who asked Eisenhower to nationalize the Arkansas National Guard so they couldn't prevent black children from going to school with whites.
Democrats don't support Israel? Truman was president when Israel was created...Carter helped get Egypt off their backs with those handy Camp David accords...and Obama has destroyed the Iranian economy and made Iran such a pariah state that China won't even do business with them.
Yes, I can see why Jews would be offended.[/quote]
You have to go to Truman and Carter for examples of Democrats supporting Israel, that makes my point.
[I][url=http://gopcapitalist.tripod.com/democratrecord.html]A little known fact of history involves the heavy opposition to the civil rights movement by several prominent Democrats. Similar historical neglect is given to the important role Republicans played in supporting the civil rights movement. A calculation of 26 major civil rights votes from 1933 through the 1960's civil rights era shows that Republicans favored civil rights in approximately 96% of the votes, whereas the Democrats opposed them in 80% of the votes![/url]
