Given how Democrats are race baiting today in an effort to salvage their public image/support as Obamas dishonesty becomes apparent, I think Ill mention some detail from the book Im writing on how Democrats today are undeniably linked to the Democrats who voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These are points I havent seen anyone but myself mention that have gone entirely unnoticed by the press thus far. Ultimately 115 Democrats voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act and Democrats even filibustered the Civil Rights Act to stop it from passing. As late as 2010 a Ku Klux Klan leader named Robert Byrd who voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act was the ranking U.S. Senator in the Democratic Party, serving until his death. Byrd at the time was one of 18 Democrats who filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and Byrd personally gave a 14-hour address to the Senate attempting to delay the Civil Rights Act. Al Gores father Al Gore Sr. also voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act and Gore, like his father, remains part of the Democratic Party. One of the best-known southern Democrats today, Bill Clinton, identifies as his mentor a southern Democrat named James William Fulbright who voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act while a U.S. Senator. North Carolina Senator Sam Ervin Jr. was yet another of the 115 Democrats who voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. His son Sam Ervin III was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals by Democratic President Jimmy Carter, serving until his death in 1999. Sam Ervin IV like his father and grandfather is also a southern Democrat. Sam Ervin IV received 48% of the vote in 2012 in the race for North Carolina Supreme Court and is running yet again in 2014. Watkins Abbitt Jr. is the son of Watkins Abbitt Sr., who voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Abbitt Jr. served until 2012 in the Virginia House of Delegates, originally running as a Democrat, and endorsed Democrat Terry McAuliffe in 2013 for Governor. U.S. Senator Olin D. Johnston of South Carolina was yet another southern Democrat who voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. McAuliffe’s daughter Elizabeth Johnston Patterson served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1987-93 and is currently the Chairwoman of the Spartanburg County Democratic Party.
