I will give you a hint...it started with Truman and kicked into high gear under Kennedy and Johnson.

    Pretending the Dixie-crats left for any reason other than "We dont want no rights for dem Darkies" is the type of revisionist history I expect out of Texas textbooks or Faux News. Please tell me I read your post wrong.

      He was pretty well educated and was a teacher...my guess is that helped.

      In other news Schumer says he has the votes for the budget resolution to begin the Reconciliation process and also said he expects to have the votes. I think he is out to lunch but here is hoping.

      • Handy, I know it's easy to toss out the race card, but the D is presently dominated by NY and CA folks (see: AOC, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Swalwell, et al). And those folks are far more liberal than Dixie-crats. Liberalization of the D is a real factor. But I'll give you credit by saying not the only factor.

        In the end however, folks vote wallet even over (their most despicable) biases.

        Don't believe me? Previously lily-white Kentucky basketball went integrated when they realized they could reach more fans (aka money).

        Dixie-crats are fiscal pragmatists and don't see NY/CA liberalism in their fiscal favor.

          But yeah, I'm sure the people who still fly a traitorous flag and call it the War of Northern Aggression were pure of heart when they switched parties.

            A good rule to follow is never judge a group by its worst 5%*.

            Are there old school, Reb flag bigots. Hell yes. But that ain't all Dixie-crats.

                Donald Trump presently has a 82% favorable rating among Republicans. I'm judging far more than 5% of that group.

                          • Cuomo, yeah yeah kep, today made a really interesting point about the racist right. He said it's hard for some poor white to be told their whiteness is a privilege that's somehow gotten them things when they're still poor as fuck.

                            His point wasn't to excuse this. He made that pretty clear.

But D motion away would require R motion toward the Dixie-crats, and don't believe that happened, quite the opposite.
                              May I kindly ask what the fuck are you talking about? Southern Democrats were white supremacists to their core. That’s literally all they cared about. The filibuster was their weapon, and they used it over and over again to only block civil rights bills. Coastal liberals weren’t even a thing in the 1930s and 1940s…and if they were, just as many, if not more, were in the Republican Party than the Democratic Party.

                                Sinema is on board with advancing the reconciliation bill. She’s just not on board with the price tag. I was mad at her last night. I’m not as mad today. I still think she sucks, but if the bipartisan bill, along with the reconciliation bill a price tag of, say, even $2.5 to $3 trillion, are signed into law, it’ll still be the most significant investment in physical and human infrastructure since LBJ’s administration.
