Avelda King the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. wrote an amazing article, “A Covenant With Life: Reclaiming MLK’s Legacy”.
This is the most articulate piece I could find to substantiate the claim that Martin Luther King was a Republican. She claims her grandfather, Dr. martin Luther King, Sr. or “Daddy King”, was a Republican and her father was a Republican.
Mrs. Coretta Scott King actually urged Nixon (who voted for the 1957 Civil Rights Law) to help her husband when he was facing a threatening jail encounter. Nixon did not respond, but JFK did & brought the attention of the nation to Dr. King’s plight.
Because of this phone call & action by JFK, Martin Luther King Jr. was very grateful (Coretta Scott King was pregnant at the time) for JFK’s intervention and urged 1000,000 black voters to cast previously Republican votes for Senator Kennedy even though Kennedy had voted against the 1957 Civil Rights Law.
This one simple act of gratitude caused black America to quickly forget that the Republican Party was the Civil Rights party and the the Democratic Party was the party of the Ku Klux Klan. It was the Republicans who started the NAACP to stop the Democrats from lynching blacks. It was the Republican President Eisenhower who sent troops to Arkansas to desegregate schools, established the Civil Rights Commission in 1958.
Read all of the article by Dr. Alveda C. King here:
Unfortunately Avelda is nothing but an extreme right wing anti-gay, anti-choice opportunist. Perhaps we should check her bank balance since she started speaking out against the King family. Here’s an example of her vitriol against the family that I got from Salon.com “In 1994, she released a letter condemning Coretta Scott King’s support for abortion and gay rights, saying it would bring ‘curses on your house and your people … cursing, vexation, rebuke in all that you put your hand to, sickness will come to you and your house, your bloodline will be cut off.’ Sounds very sane to me…not.

But Avelda was correct! What true Man Of God would support abortion or gay rights? Coretta did that after MLK’s death, and I’m sure he’s rolling in his grave about that one. I guess you think that if you believe in God and His Word, you are an extremist. Sorry, Roman, but I guess what Avelda said applies to you, too. “And if you disagree/ don’t complain to me/ you can argue with Him” (‘Whistling In The Dark’, by Bob Bennett).
The key is that they have to get established before they make their political affiliations known because Hollywood is so immature that if someone comes out as a Republican/Conservative they will try to shoot them down before they have any success by boycotting their movies or trying to encourage such a mindset. It is truly childish. For as humble as they pretend to be they really aren’t the star power goes to their head and they think their vote counts for 100s because of that(which sadly it probably does because people are such blind followers that they don’t even know what they’re supporting but they still support it anyways).
Every single Republican or Conservative could go down the line of what their different beliefs are, and all a liberal/democrat would be able to give you are reasons that they vote for democratic/liberal candidates such as health care or other baited issues that the left leaning candidates throw out there that have them eating out of their hand.
Don’t give me any grammar BS, because I’m used to just posting and then going back and editing that after, but apparently a comment editor is too advanced for CBS.
The good (conservative) nuns used to tell us that your grammar and punctuation were an indication of the respect you had for your words.
Robert Duvall & Clint Eastwood the only talented ones on the list…..most Republicans I know have changed to the whole “Indie” or “libertarian” I mean how embarrassing to be thought of as a Republican!
Article that refutes that MLK,jr was a republican. I knew this was inaccurate.
Yeah, I’ll bet the New York Times would say the same thing. You keep asking for sources, Roman… I’m glad you found a Leftist one that would agree with your misinformation. You can’t trust all sources. And I gave you one, above, since you seem to find it difficult to research your own.
already read that before you posted …right wing site. Thanks for nothing
He was a conservative Christian. Read any of HIS books, dummy. He would definitely not fit into the Liberal Democrat party of today. Then again, neither would many famous “Democrats” of the past! I know it’s shocking to you that not all black people are liberal idiots, but it’s true.
You’re mistaken. Read what Garrow says about his political leanings. Since you’re an expert on MLK and I’m a “dummy” I don’t need to tell who Garrow is do I? Strom Thurmond was a “Democrat” so no I am not surprise that many former “Democrats” would not “fit into the Liberal Democrats”.
Where is the list of idiots who lean to the left? That’s a lot more useful so we can boycott their stupid movies.
Roman can doubt MLK’s politics all he or she wants but facts are facts. But it makes sense considering the late Robert Byrd led the Dems to filibuster the the 1964 Human Rights Act.
Please list your source of the facts. Robert Byrd was a Dixiecrat at the time if I’m not mistaken.
Wrong. Byrd was a DEMOCRAT and a racist until the day he finally died. You can’t “revise” that no matter how hard you try.
Are you saying that Byrd was not a Dixicrat? Then you are wrong. He was a racist at the time he voted against the bill .You do understand who the dixicrats were don’t you James?
To A Mom
MLK jr a republican ? I truly doubt that. Please reference your source. Suggested reading for all dems and reps Family of Secrets by Russ Baker, Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins. Whether you left or right these books will enlighten you as to who truly makes policy in this country.
It is a very well known fact. Google it. Do you know how?
I did. See the Washington Post article I linked below. Have a blessed day.
MLK was a registered Republican. Yeah, the party of LINCOLN, morons. Democraps have been selling blacks a bill of goods since the 60′s. It’s unbelievable that they’ve got ‘em eatin’ outta their hands, STILL. Remember, dumbass public-schooled morons… it was southern DEMOCRATS that fought a war to KEEP their slaves, and a northern REPUBLICAN (Lincoln) that FREED them! You couldn’t hardly HOPE to elect a Republican to anything in the South from Reconstruction until Ronald Reagan. Why? You KNOW why…because the South seethed with resentment against Lincoln for freein’ they prop’ty.
Wait. Someone above was saying that the Republicans here have all the class in these posts. Really?
By the way, read your American history. Republicans in the mid-1800s were the liberals of the day, and Democrats were the conservatives. Over time, they switched policies. It’s only the names that remained the same. Look it up.
Thanks, Finally someone who truly understands history.It’s hard to argue with someone who distorts the facts to make a point. They keeping writing that Democrats were against the Civil Rights act…what they don’t say is that these were the southern dems the dixiecrats that later turned republican except for Robert Byrd (no fan of his).
It’s true but it’s also disingenuous to leave it at that. At the time, the South was run by Boll Weevil Democrats like George Wallace and his ilk. That’s why MLK opposed them and registered as a Republican.
After the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed, southern hostility towards the northern Democratic establishment resulted in southern Democrats ether switching parties or becoming the so-called Reagan Democrats of the 1980s. The fact that the GOP has owned the south for the past 30 years isn’t a testament to a mass change of heart on the part of Southern politicians. It’s because the GOP became a more appealing party for them. What’s left of those Democrats today are mostly called Blue Dogs.
Yes, Dr. King was a republican according to his niece Dr. Alveda C. King who stated,
“My grandfather, Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr., or “Daddy King”, was a Republican
and father of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was a Republican.”
I am amused that democrats are fast to make personal attacks on republicans. Rather than making it personal, please debate the issues, not the people. So, you can take the Palin, Obama, Lohan, Spears all out of the situation and let’s talk issues.
I’d bet the democrats would resort to name calling and stray away from the actual issues right away.
We need our “Government of the People, By the People” back. It has been hijacked by politicans. Let’s get the power back to the people.
clint is the man
and folks like rosie o’donnell, anne “i can’t decide if i’m straight or gay” heche, and joe “couldn’t get a fact straight even if it’s on a note card” biden are shinning examples of leftist democrat whiz kids.
Not too much talent, huh? You’re right; James Earl Jones, Charleton Heston, Andy Garcia, Loretta Lynn…the list of “no-talent losers” goes on and on. Give me a break. Political party is irrelevant to how accomplished someone is at their profession.
And don’t forget Robert Duvall, who was rightly listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the Best Actor!
30 years ago these actors were relevant. political party is irrelevant but this is a pretty sad bunch of coco-nuts it should have been a guessing a game.
I actually have faith that maybe all of America may not be that bad I just wish a few more of these celebrities would come out and speak more on the behalf of CAPITALISM and not so much on entitlement programs which they can afford to pay for but the middle class can’t so we are taken down and they just don’t get it. Government does not produce GDP, it PRODUCES DEPT!!! EUROPE NOW GETS WAKE UP Pres.Obama.
I’m not disappointed that so many Country/Western stars are Repubs…Disappointed that Don King, James Earl Jones & Fitty Cent are Repubs…
MLK Jr was a republican… skin color should not reflect a political party… where is your open mindedness?
She didn’t say a thing about skin color. Did she?
The Republican Party of the 1960s would be considered mainstream Democrats today. There’s a famous quote made in anger by Barry Goldwater, who was the de facto spokesman for the conservative faction of 1960s Republican party.
When asked in 1985 if he would endorse Reagan’s agenda he said, “”Do not associate my name with anything you do. You are extremists, and you’ve hurt the Republican party much more than the Democrats have.”
Lin- I am glad they are, it shows they know something! Who are you to decide for the so kind of queen? Stop the “hating” as you say, (dumb wording).
Well, you are a bigot. No party has hurt blacks in America more than the Democratic party. Not just one hundred years ago, but up to today.
Not such a disguised little racist comment.
So the old saying is true. If you are young and not a democrat then you don’t have a heart and if you are older and not a republican then you don’t have a brain.
cYONLINE HE4S THE ONE WHO SAID IT
Born December 14, 1853Santa Maria Capua Vetere, Kingdom of the Two Sicilies
Died July 22, 1932 (aged 78)Rome, Italy
Occupation Social and political activist, writer
Errico Malatesta (December 14, 1853– July 22, 1932) was an Italian anarcho-communist. He was an insurrectionary anarchist early in his life. He spent much of his life exiled from his homeland of Italy and in total spent more than ten years in prison. He wrote and edited a number of radical newspapers and was also a friend of Mikhail Bakunin.
How cool is it that Malatesta means “sick head.”
Then why do people with undergraduate and graduate degrees vote for democrats, why are most university professors democrats? ie. Why do most highly educated people vote for democrats and consider themselves proud liberals? This saying never made any sense to me. Democrats have both a heart and a brain.
Roman, have you ever been to college? ever since Dewey wrote the Humanist Manifesto and began the Teacher’s Union at the turn of the 20th century, teachers have been acting as what they call “Change Agents” to push their Leftist philosophies on unsuspecting students. In many colleges, you can’t get tenure without being a liberal. There are many educated, intelligent people who have no “street smarts” at all. You can have a heart and a brain and still be a fool.
Because those who can, do. And those who can’t teach. I know plenty of idiots who stayed on at school to get advanced degrees because they couldn’t get a job. Academia can be a refuge for idiots who can’t do anything else. Wisdom is not taught anyways.
Because they become indoctrinated during all of those years by people whom they are groomed to respect.
Definition of a liberal Democrat as I am sure you all know – Spend other peoples money to make yourself feel better – clueless liberals. Who really cares about Hollywood? As someone once said Hollywood is like high school with money. Does andbody really take the ditzy twins (Rosie and Janeane) seriously?
Martin Mull said ‘Hollywood is high school w/ money.’…Stop the hating, Gwenn…Whether a person is Liberal, Dem, Repub, Conservative, etc., it’s the Bushies that started all the HATE and polarization when Gee Dubyuh was “in charge” [and we all know how THAT ended]….
Goodness Lin, what are you 12? The last President WITHOUT all this idiotic hate was Eisenhower. Read some real history about this country to temper your opinions with knowledge. The gloves came off Johnson and they have never gone back on.
Gwenn, speaking of clueless, do you need reminding that most of the federal deficit was created by the past four Republican presidents, including the last one who added over $5 trillion to it as well as increased federal spending by 104%… more than any president in the past 40 years? Do you need reminding that Clinton sent four straight years of balanced budgets to Congress, including one generating a surplus, only to have it blown to hell in the first year of the Bush presidency?
Steve, Obama’s run up more debt than all Presidents from Washington through Reagan combined. Your guy’s going down. There’s nothing you can do about it.
Steve, it is technically true what you said about budgets and the Presidents that were in power. What wasn’t presented was how Clinton bent to the WILL of the people after ’94 midterms and the Dems losing the House and Senate after 40 years of power. Remember, “Welfare as we know it has ended.” Those balanced budgets began when conservative ideas were in used economically. The George W. years (early ones before the Dems controlled Congress) was when the country experienced a most remarkable recovery after 911. The longest period of economic growth in the nations history. Combine that with the fact that since the Dems and particularly the Left Wing of the Democratic Party have pulled the strings, the whole World is on the brink of something cataclysmic …..hard choices need to be made and I want people making those decisions that haven’t been completely corrupted by this nation’s abundance. Where you going to find those people? I have a pretty good idea………
OH GOOD LORD, LEAVE IT TO HER TO SAY SOMETHING STUPID, SHE CAN’T EVEN MAKE A SANE DECISION ABOUT HER OWN LIFE…
why is it a democrat always will give a stupid remark where as the /republican always has more class. the object is not money but saving the country fro what is happening right under our noses
The Republican has “more class”? It’s more than 20 years of watching vicious Republican attack ads and listening to their hateful rhetoric that has turned me against them, in spite of the spinelessness of the Democrats. The lies being told about our current president since the campaign of 2008 only reinforce this image of Republicans as ruthless bullies and thugs.
Between hateful bigots and spineless wimps, there is not much to love in American politics.
you’re quite the fool jameel.
I haven’t heard anything about Obama that wasn’t true, Jameel, except from the leftist media who try to make everything he does look good, which is very hard to do. But I have heard a lot about the Republicans and the Tea Party which were pure lies. And I don’t know who you were watching on the news (probably Olbermann, the former sports announcer who doesn’t know a thing about politics) but you should try watching the real news on Fox News. They are the only ones telling the truth.
No one needs to lie about Obama; the things he is doing are making his own Democrats unhappy, too. And the rest of the world is laughing at him. Consider this recent quote from media in the Czech Republic:
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.
It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
But you’re right about American politics. There hasn’t been much to love about it since Reagan left office.
Democrats ALWAYS give stupid remarks? Republicans ALWAYS have more class? What comments have you been reading? What placards do you see at the Tea Party rallies? I read more hatred on the Tea Party site than I have read almost anywhere else. That’s why I left.
James Custer McCarthy: you’re right about one thing: the republic must be strong to have survived the economic trainwreck, social upheaval and constitutional abuses by 8 years of Bush and 6 years of GOP majorities.
I don’t know if it can survive it again.
PS: look at those years of foreign protests against Bush followed by the unprecedented rallies of support for Obama in Europe and tell me again who they side with. It certainly ain’t with you, buddy.l
there are some pieces of azz in that list.
Shut your ignorant piehole!
your a public school drop out right? No need to answer your post makes it abundantly clear.
Look who’s talking about dropout. We learned in, what, third grade, that it’s You’re here, not your. And it’s spelled dropout. And your last sentence is a total run-on and should be 2 separate sentences.
Try getting your own moronic act together before you insult others.
Not tax reasons. As people grows older, they get wiser by going through life experiences. You can fool people some of the times but not forever. I’d say even Democrats have intelligent leaders that is why they are leaders. But if you are one of the so called member of the herds, sorry for you. Just follow blindly and do not even attempt to comment.
then how do you explain Sarah Palin
As I grow older I could join your comment, however I’d rather consider myself as a member of the herd, unlike yourself having chosen the part of the herd you think is the upper part since you believe it entitles you to tell the other part to shut up.
You’re not old and wise, you’re just senile.
Poor Sarah Palin. I am sorry for her. She leaves a stigma to the Palin l
Are you discounting their humanitarian efforts? I know Sean Penn went out to N.O during Katrina to personally help out in the rescue. You can probably find youtube footage of him in a row boat helping out the victims of the disaster. Currently he is camped out in Haiti for the past 6 months running his own rescue camp to help the victims of the earthquake. Sean Penn may have faults but he definitely aspires to do good in this world. Peace.
Don’t discount the 1000′s of conservative churchs that helped in the aftermath of N.O and Haiti and all those other troubles. The libs have so called stars, but conservatives don’t need ego maniacs to represent them. Conservatives just do it, they take action. Libs are mostly just lip service.
The more conservatives in Liberalwood the better. No RINOS like Schwarznegger please.
Britney Spears. That she is on the list says it all about the Republican party.
Oh, that, and making a complete dope like Sarah Palin a key face of your party.
Those two and the rest of them deserve each other.
Well, Lindsay Lohan supported Obama, so there you go as far as the face of the Democratic Party.
I’m guessing you don’t own property or pay taxes
To play your silly little game…
“P-Diddy is a Democrat. That says it all about the Democrats.”
Or to one up you…
Robert Byrd started his own chapter of the Ku Klux Klan and Democrats kept electing him to the Senate for decades until he died this summer. That says it all about the Democrats.
So by your reasoning a Typical Democrat would like Ted Kennedy, a Drunk and murderer. Nice trade off! and oh, by the , way more money than Britney!
As if Palin is dopier than Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Barry Soetoro?
Yes, moron. She is.
Also, there’s no such person as “Barry Soetoro”.
JDub go back to watching your Jerry Springer show…didn’t your momma tell you that if you have nothing intelligent to say, keep your piehole shut?
I don’t think there is enough room, time or space to list all the left wing celebrity nuts.
What has Sean Penn, Danny Glover, John Cusack or Barbara Streisand done for you lately?
thats really cool thinking.. i bet you think your a big mac when you walk into
mc Donald’s to
Hollywood? More like Dollywood!
So there is still hope for Hollywood.
NNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Not Meatloaf!! How can this be???
Well said (typos aside ).
the right wing supported Hitler. Conservatives were against ALL of the progress that American society has made such as giving women the right to vote and disatorous wars like Vietnam and Iraq and Afghanistan
Amen. We forget we are all Americans. What happened to us?
Jim, take a deep breath and get a dose of reality. Being a knee-jerk follower is not the way.
Perhaps you should do your own research instead of simply repeating what others tell you. Conservatives were staunchly ANTI Hitler, Churchill the most famous case-in-point. And the only reason Civil Rights legislation was passed was because Republicans pushed it despite vicious Democrat opposition. Somehow that historical fact gets overlooked by those who spout today’s rhetoric. And, the very first Republican president of the United States was responsible for the Emancipation Proclamation, Abraham Lincoln. The historical truth is that Republicans have been at the forefront of civil rights issues from the beginning.
Personally I am a Libertarian. I am not a Republican ideologue. The GOP has faults and has made mistakes. But truth is truth, fact is fact, and rhetoric is for the mindless. Think for yourself.
I would have agreed with you 8 years ago but right now the Republican Party is 100% wrong.
Should we not lower taxes to encourage the economy?
Should we not try to dump fun but not neccessary expenses from the gov’t (like the NEA and NPR)?
Should we not stop illegal immigrants from breaking the law at will?
Should we not at the very least save viable infants from the horror of Partial Birth Abortion?
I could go on Brad with Conservative ideas that are shared by the vast majoirty of Americans. The best thing you can say against them is that th e R Party is not really for them. But that problem, of being two-faced politicians, is what the Tea Party is here to solve.
Just raise taxes on the Democrats , they should feel better, its patriotic according to Biden. And those rich elitest like Bill Gates, Soros, Warren Buffet need to have their wealth redistributed since they believe in their cause so much..
I agree with some of your points
1)Definitely lower taxes as Obama wants to do
2) stop illegal immgrants- I agree with Dobbs make hiring illgel immigrants a felony… but wait Dobbs hired illegal immigrants …HYPOCRITE.
This is only a small list compared to the left wing extremists on the Democrat side. But its nice to know so hopefully I will be able to watch a movie again. I will just have to pay attention to the creditionals. I don’t go to Democrat activist movies. There is usually too much vulgar in it anyway.
Then why are they doing so darn well (and I mean, HISTORICALLY well) heading into the Nov elections? Do you think the American people are ‘stupid’ for ‘falling for them’, or something?
Tennwriter: NPR only gets between one and three percent of its budget each year, and that through indirect routes.
As far as the so-called “partial birth abortions,” those procedures are incredibly rare, and only done when the health or life of the mother is at risk. Legislation against the procedures are pure PR.
And by your logic, if we did away with taxes entirely, our economy would fly. Hah.
BTW, the US already has some of the lowest taxes in the industrialized world.
“The right wing supported Hitler”… are you high?
It’s true. Hitler had a lot of support from US industrialists like John Rockefeller, Andrew Mellon, Dupont and Henry Ford, who were all Republicans. One of Hitler’s biggest American shills was Charles Lindbergh, whose father was a four-term Republican congressman and a leader in the Minnesota Republican. There were a few Democrats like Hearst, who were mostly anti-interventionists.
One of Hitler’s strongest supporters was Prescott Bush, Dubya’s granddady.
Just because Glenn Beck says the Nazis were leftists doesn’t make it so.
“The more you know…”
This list is deceptive. For instance, Dale Earnhart, Jr may be a registered Republican but he supported Obama in 2008, as did NASCAR legend, Junior Johnson.
And like any intelligent individual, regrets his foolish actions of supporting Obummer…
This is typical of the historical revisionism of today’s right wing. The landmark 20th century civil rights legislation was the 1964 Civil Rights Act sent to a Democratic Congress by JFK (a Democrat). Following his assassination, LBJ (a Democrat) shepherded it through Congress with heavy bipartisan support. The bill passed 290-120 in the House and with over 70% of the Senate — something you’d never see with today’s uncooperative, pushback GOP voting 100% against all Democratic-sponsored legislation.
@John, if you feel that we must look at the history of the “right” since history is clearly not one of your strong suits… I feel it would be fair to take a look at the history of the Democratic party.
In contrast, you will find that many were in favor of Slavery, The Southern Democrats endorsed slavery, while the Republicans denounced it. The Northern Democrats said democracy required the people to decide on slavery locally.
Hmmm… Now onto Vietnam, Remember Linden B Johnson (D)?
Now let’s look at the history of the democratic parties actions against suffrage (women’s right to vote) NYT Sept 21′s 1914 http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=F40D12F63A5B13738DDDA80A94D1405B848DF1D3
Yes it can be, the smart ones vote republican. The liars and crazy people vote Democrat.
Typical of cons very opinionated with made up facts and of course when all else fails resort to name calling.
There is a reason GOP vote against the Dems, and that is because Democrats are trying to destroy America. And I am damn proud of the GOP for doing so.
Jim, get your facts straight…it was Kennedy who got us into Vietnam and Nixon who got us out……read a history book.
hey steve, why don’t you look at the vote and see how mostly voted against it. DEMOCRATS!!!
You guys should really stop with the myth making already . We’re not buying it. History showns it was the dixiecrats Including Byrd who voted against the legislation. here is the breakdown according to party and region:
Civil Rights Act of 1964 – Vote statistics
The Original House Version: 290-130
The Senate Version: 73-27
The Senate Version, as voted on by the House: 289-126
By Party: The Original House Version:
Democratic Party: 153-96
Republican Party: 138-34
The Senate Version:
Democratic Party: 46-22
Republican Party: 27-6
The Senate Version, voted on by the House:
Democratic Party: 153-91
Republican Party: 136-35
By Party and Region:
The Original House Version:
Southern Democrats: 7-87
Southern Republicans: 0-10
Northern Democrats: 145-9
Northern Republicans: 138-24
The Senate Version:
Southern Democrats: 1-21
Southern Republicans: 0-1
Northern Democrats: 46-1
Northern Republicans: 27-5
It all got started by Eisenhower, a Republican President.
Steve, I would like you to answer this question since you are not into historical revisionism: Did a higher percentage of Republicans or Democrats vote for the 1964 Civil Rights Act?
Wow you are ignorant. The civil rights bill you are referring to was voted down horribly by the Democrats led by your dubious Robert KKK Byrd. It was Republican legislation and passed byt he Republicans, who have sponsored EVERY SINGLE civil rights legislation this country has ever had. EVER.
Do not spat stats if your information is incorrect or as in this case you are just plain naive or ignorant. Do some research before just writing democrat “talking points”, because to a true educated voter your sound just plain moronic.
Steve, let me give you and all the other mouthpiece democrats who use statistical numbers without doing any research. Here is how the actual vote went by party on the 1964 civil rights act: Taken from Wikipedia: By party
The original House version:
Democratic Party: 152-96 (61%–39%)
Republican Party: 138-34 (80%–20%)
Cloture in the Senate:
Democratic Party: 44-23 (66%–34%)
Republican Party: 27-6 (82%–18%)
The Senate version:
Democratic Party: 46-21 (69%–31%)
Republican Party: 27-6 (82%–18%)
The Senate version, voted on by the House:
Democratic Party: 153-91 (63%–37%)
Republican Party: 136-35 (80%–20%) As you can clearly see you moron DEMOCRATS clearly voted against it FAR MORE than Republicans…GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT !!
You failed to list the vote by region as I did above. Once again it was the southern democrats (AKA dixiecrats – that later joined the republican party except for a few Byrd being the most well known to remain in the democratic party)and southern REPUBLICANS that voted against the bill.
@Steve, is that a typo? Wiki says 290 to 130 (not 120) @becuzican Elsewhere in the article it shows 100% of southern republicans voting against, the point is the problem we have right now is 99% of republicans voting against all progress just to obstruct -it’s bad for the country and is un-American. Be a grown up -the only morons are some of the tea party/republican candidates running now, and their supporters. Sarah Palin should have said, Is the Bush doctrine the one where you get to say anything you want and act like it’s true? cause I’d support that! @the celebs just because you have fame and fortune, doesn’t mean you have brains.
John, wrong. NAZI stood for National SOCIALIST German Workers Party. They were statist socialist to the core. The “NAZI’s are facist right wingers” LIE is more false history and propaganda that has roots in Stalin’s Soviet Union, where lies grew like apples under a bright blue sky.
Boy, are you loony, man! Look up Nazis in wikipedia, man. Or is that liberal, or pink, or red, or scarlet, or blue? Trouble is, so many right wingers in the Us (and elsewhere) did side with the Nazis that it’s still an embarrasment for some of their successors
Meat has always been a conservative. And one hello of a good capitalist too. Yeah!
To persuade Republicans to sign the petition, LBJ continued:
We’ve only got 150 Democrats; the rest of them are southerners. So we’ve got to make every Republican [sign]. We ought to say, “Here is the party of Lincoln. Here is the image of Lincoln, and whoever it is that is against a hearing and against a vote in the House of Representatives, is not a man who believes in giving humanity a fair shake. . . . Now if we could ever get that signed, that would practically break their back in the Senate because they could see that [this movement] here is a steamroller.”
Well, maybe he thought about things and came to the right conclusion.
The right wing did not support Hitler ! Hitler was a classic liberal. Socialist, supported abortion, gun control, and envrionmental issues.
You’re insane, Meaderva! Go read wikipedia; that should be easy enough for you.
How Bush’s grandfather helped Hitler’s rise to power
Rumours of a link between the US first family and the Nazi war machine have circulated for decades. Now the Guardian can reveal how repercussions of events that culminated in action under the Trading with the Enemy Act are still being felt by today’s president
You are right. The idiots talking about Bush’s grandfather should think twice about posting messages in forums. They reveal how incredibly stupid and pathetic they are. What a freaking coincidence that even Bush’s grandfather was so dumb. Lol. How pathetic an attempt to continue to slander someone. Funny that people who defended a monster like Saddam Hussein are going to somehow make Bush guilty by association/relation. Lol. Ignoramuses. The truth is that those who had their heads in the sand when Hitler committed his atrocities are so much like liberals today. Scary.
You’re surprised someone who hasn’t spent his life drunk, high, and making an ass of himself is a Republican? You really don’t know much about conservatives, but then you libs really don’t know much about America.
You mean someone like drunkard, wife-beater Mel Gibson or pill-popping, drug-smuggling Rush Limbaugh?
