"The big break didn’t come until President Johnson, another Southern Democrat, signed the Civil Rights Act in 1964 and the Voting Rights Act in 1965.

The change wasn’t total or immediate. During the late 1960s and early ‘70s, white Southerners were still transitioning away from the Democratic party (newly enfranchised black Southerners voted and continue to vote Democratic). And even as Republican Richard Nixon employed a “Southern strategy” that appealed to the racism of Southern white voters, former Alabama Governor George Wallace (who’d wanted “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, and segregation forever”) ran as a Democrat in the 1972 presidential primaries."

 

So whenever someone mentions the Democrats creating the Ku Klux Klan, and Martin Luther King was a Republican, feel free to read this (real) bit of history.

This makes no sense. So after the republicans freed the slaves and moved forward the civil rights act the racists decided to move over to them?

This lie again? Weak sauce man

 

https://www.prageru.com/video/why-did-the-democratic-south-become-republican/

 

In case you decide to ignore the video, here are the claims

 

1: Republicans had been co.petitive in the south since 1920s

2: only 1 of the 21 democrats that opposed the 64 Civil rights act became republican

3: Nixon lost the deep south in 1968...so much for racists voting republican

Yes, largely as a result of a conscious strategy under Richard Nixon. He and his advisors realized that they could capitalize on segregationalist frustration if they dog whistled about black people. It worked.

I guess Share Blue is pulling out all the stops to try to stop the black voter flight which was already on and poppin' long before Biden just put it on the world stage that they are taken for granted with his latest gaff.

I can see you trying, but its far too late.  You're polishing the brass on the Titanic now, you fucking nimrods.

The civil rights act, filibustered for 74 days by DEMOCRATS. Almost 80% of the no votes were DEMOCRAT.

Yes, because there was an actual outright segregationist candidate, George Wallace, on the ballot, and he won 5 states in the Deep South. Nixon would go on to win those states 4 years later.

Northern Democrats voted 145–9 in favor of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The mass of votes against it came from Representatives of Southern states - segregationists who had been Democrats because of the legacy of the Civil War period. Two months after this vote 5 of the 6 states that went to Goldwater over LBJ were in the Deep South, including 3 that had gone to the Democrats before the 1964 Civil Rights act was signed into law by a Democratic president.
