Al Gore lies: His father voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by Cyrus255, Oct 14, 2006.

    On a video on Al Gore's website is another one of his trademark lies:

    "My commitment to civil rights is a deeply personal one. I watched my father when he was, a U.S. Senator from Tennessee, take courageous stands for civil rights. He opposed the poll tax in the 40s, and supported civil rights in the 50s, he supported voting rights in 1963, and was one of two Southern Senators to refuse to sign the hateful Southern Manifesto opposing integration in our schools. He lost his Senate seat because his [sic] stands�"

    R.D. Davis, a member of Project 21 (a black organization), researched the voting records from the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and found:

    - Al Gore Sr. voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    - Al Gore Sr. participated in a 74 day filibuster to delay and weaken the legislation.

    - Al Gore Sr. proposed an amendment to the Civil Rights Act that would have kept federal funds flowing to schools that defied court desegregation orders. It was defeated by a vote of 74-25. 23 Democrats and 1 Republican voted for it.

    Al Gore's father was one of the most extreme racist senators in congress. Robert Byrd, a leading democratic senator, was a member of the KKK. Robert has said "nigger" on national television just two years ago. Joe Biden tried to gain points by saying he was from the "slave state" of Delaware.

    I hope that can expose the elitist nature of the democratic party. Granted liberals are too close-minded to actually change because of facts, so they'll just close their minds when they read it.

    It's a token example of racist elitism. Like Madonna running over to adopt her new slave-child. She sees Angelina adopting a black child and just says "ooo, I must have one!" like they are some sort of possesion.

    I think it is because liberal elitists "feel better" when they condescend to black people. Like "oh you poor black people" then hand them welfare. They feel like they are better than blacks and so must give them "hand-outs".

    You subsidize what you want more of. It is welfare, affirmative action (reverse racism), and other things that hold blacks to a lower standard, and keep them in poverty.

    You can be against racism and for civil rights for everyone while at the same time being against the horribly designed Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    I know that's where Barry Goldwater and I stand.

    What is it you don't like about the legislation, Will? That legislation predates my awareness (coming from 1964) (even an old guy like me!)

    The act oversteps the authority of government, particularly titles two and seven.

    This is the same reason I am against anti-drug laws, anti-gambling laws, blue laws, etc... etc... etc...

    Government should provide police, a court system, and national defense. In most everything else, the government should leave people alone.

    So ferret is pro-slave trade? It's okay to line up a bunch of downtrodden people so some wealthy person can buy one? Sounds like a good idea ;)

    Republican senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona voted against the bill, remarking, "You can't legislate morality."
    --------------------------------

    Is that the essence of your view?

    Right to association..freedom itself.

    I tend to agree.

    Although in PUBLIC schooling I can see the legal arguement ie to say, if they vote to have public schooling they should follow public policy. Although I wonder what sort of jurisdiction the federal government really has in schools....?

    I'm a libertarian in spirit, but not a party member. The Libertarian Party is just too weird for me.

    The Republicans are too religious for me. The Democrats are too callow for me.

    I am my own party. :)

    Will. Army of One. :)

    Libertarians are their own worst enemy. If they'd put out some good candidates and stop being stupid; they could probably get some real support. But what they do, it seem their intent is to be the eternal minority party.
