This Day in History - 1962 Mississippi

This Day in History: on this day in 1962, African-American James Meredith was blocked by state officials and violent mobs when he attempted to register for classes at the University of Mississippi, which was all white until that time. Meredith had previously obtained a federal court order to allow him to register; however, he was only able to enroll after the Kennedy administration sent in federal troops.

AND on another day in history

Republicans in West Virginia discovered a letter Sen. Byrd had written to the Imperial Wizard of the KKK three years after he says he abandoned the group. He wrote: “The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia” and “in every state in the Union.”

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

Thank Goodness the Republicans were able to get the civil rights bill passed despite strong opposition from the dems. Over 80% support in the Senate by Repubs.. Only 67% of Dems supported. Over 80% support by Repubs in the house only 61% support by dems in the House.

Thank God that Republicans have always lead the way on true Freedom.

Wait a sec. You keep saying you're a libertarian. Are you actually a libertarian or just a LINO? You seem really hung up on what the Republican party does.

I'm just curious. We seem to have 100's of Libertarian members on this site. They often say that Romney is only marginally better than Obama and still I have yet to see or hear of anyone who is actually going to vote Libertarian.

Thank God, the vote didn't actually break along regional rather than party lines. Or did it?

The original House version:

Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7–93%)

Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0–100%)

Northern Democrats: 145–9 (94–6%)

Northern Republicans: 138–24 (85–15%)

The Senate version:

Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5–95%)

Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0–100%)

Northern Democrats: 45–1 (98–2%)

Northern Republicans: 27–5 (84–16%)

Say, who did the GOP nominate to run for President in 1964 and how strong was that candidate's support for the Civil Rights Act?

Not sure what a LINO is.

Your right about Mitt. I will probably vote for him.. Sad that is the lesser of two evils. I would be wasting a vote is a poor excuse, your absolute correct.

I did not know there were 4 parties. The fact is that repubs took the lead on Civil rights in this country and Dems were the party of discrimination and Jim Crow.

I'm voting for Gary Johnson to be different or writing Micky Mouse in.

However if it looks like Romney is going to win, I just might vote for Obummer.

Kennedy and LBJ pushed forward on Civil Rights and were key to ending segregation in the South. Big Dog is right - it came down to region vs. party affiliation. It may be hard to believe, but there was a time when the two parties had more in common than differences. A time when ideas mattered, not ideology.

JFK and LBJ were Republicans? There's a history re-write. The Republican candidate for President in 1964 ran on opposition to the Civil Rights Act. Why did a party that you claim took the lead on this legislation nominate a candidate so opposed to it?

Not that it would make a difference. There's literally no chance Obama is going to carry Texas. Now, I know you don't like Obama at all. But for you, Mitt is the bigger evil still?

Mitt is a moderate at the end of the day stuck in an idealistic world of modern American politics. He's not a bad guy really, just can't plant his feet on what he truly believes and I don't trust anyone who cannot freely speak how they really feel or who will say things just to appease a certain group of people. Principle should always win at the end of the day. Unfortunately in American politics it cannot.

With that being said, I wouldn't want a Romney white house because another economic collapse is around the corner within the next year to year and a half. If that happens under a Republican watch, then it will destroy the party for decades to come. I hate our two party system with a passion, but it sure as hell beats a one party system at the end of the day.

Find me a candidate that will stop the Federal Reserve from printing more money and keeping interest rates artificially low at the same time and they'll have my vote through and through, but that's non-existent in today's ignorant economic world.

I guess the fact that another Pub freed the slaves means nothing also.

Actually Goldwater supported all versions of the civil rights bill except the last one. He opposed it because he was a libertarian and did not believe in the federal government forcing people to do business or engage in practices they did not want to engage in. He also opposed the Christian right and supported gay rights and abortion rights.

And other than sharing the name there is little that the Republican party represented in 1860 that motivates its followers today!
