    Yeah, because a republican in Lincoln`s era has the policies as republicans today. Nixon`s policies are considered left of center by today`s republicans. This guy has been unable to go more than 2 sentences without dropping the most blatant fallacies in each of his videos.

    I can see he`s trying to be funny, but underneath it all he honestly believes that democrats are evil.

    Also, did he really just say that "blacks are getting back at us for slavery by voting in sh*tty politicians, and then sneaking away to nice areas?" ...for some reason, attributing a hive-mind to black people feels vaguely racist.

    Let`s see this guy try to make the arguments when it is Conservative vs Liberal. The Lincoln Republicans were Liberal, while today`s Republican`s are Conservative. The funniest part of this clip was him using Ann Coulter in his argument that Republican`s aren`t racists. Ann Coulter!!!

    Lies lies lies yeah. Almost everyone (Conservatives and Liberals) in the white South became a Democrat because of Lincoln. And they remained in the Democratic party until the late 60`s. Do you really think the white South would be in the same party as Lincoln? They went to war against the Northern liberals and Republicans. The white South didn`t move to the the Republican party until segregation was outlawed by court order and by the Civil Rights acts of 1964 and 1965. Don`t beleive me, go to Conservapedia.com/Republican halfway down the page read Realignment: The South Becomes Republican.

    well of course. 150 years ago Repulikkkans were liberal so naturally they are now... NOT

    black vote demokkkrat because the dems will give more social services than reps.

    the question is WHY do hispanics vote republikkkan when they regularly cut those services?

    Speaking from experience I will say it is next to impossible to get any conservative who watches Fox News to admit that this is a lie. They have been told over and over and over that the Democratic party is the party of racism. I was finally able to get my mom to admit it was a lie but it took me several days. This lie was created to attack the democrats strength this time around - electing a black President.

    I have to jump off of this one. A year back I finally broke the bonds of Opinion Media. I stopped watching Cable News, listening to partisan radio and going to partisan watchdog sites. Although I was the polar opposite as 5Cats I was equally as miserable a person. Commenting on partisan posts like this one could easily pull me right back into that negative lifestyle. I will not go back. I choose happiness.

    Is he...is he serious? Is this parody or is he genuinely believing the bile he spits?

    I already see a number of you have already mentioned how erroneous his Civil War-era political party views are, something I hope every U.S. citizen learned in gradeschool. The rest of his argument is so flawed and offensive, I can`t even fathom a mentally stable human being using it literally. There is no argument here, folks. This is just horrendously misinformed poison.

    Black people vote democrat because since Lincoln`s time, The GOP and the Dems have switched roles in our political theatre. I personally vote democrat because I have to vote against the GOP. If those roostersuckers get their way slavery will return and it won`t be just black people this time.

    Southerners were racist because they were racist Southerners, not because they were Democrats. To equate the modern Democratic party to the Yellow Dogs from (most recently) the 1960`s requires a stretch of logic, intellectual honesty, historical accuracy and gall. Well done, good sir!

Look at Barack Obama, there are few more racist politicians in elected office in the USA. Look at the attacks on black Republicans from leftists; they are racists.

    @evanbartlett: Sen Robert Byrd: Democrat, former KKK GRAND WIZARD. David Duke, Democrat, former KKK Grand Wizard. Just how many Republican KKK members are there? Zero? Well obviously because the KKK isn`t racist enough for the GOP, eh?

    @djlazar: @madest never lets `reality` get in the way of his hatred of all things right. The left is always right for him!

    The South is still the most racist part of the country. The Republicans have been relying on the "Southern Strategy" for the last half century or so. Ergo the Republican Party is the de facto party for closet racists. Not that the Republican Party itself or that a majority of Republicans are racist, just that most politically active racists, though not all, (New Black Panthers etc.) tend to Republican.

    You are the reason I`m proud to be a native Texan.

    @BlameMeta

    Trust me on this one, there`s a reason they say, "Don`t Mess With Texas." It`s because we`re fiercely proud, and fiercely loyal to our beloved state. The very state which, right now, is kicking ass compared to the rest of the country. There`s a reason all those hippies from Cali, and the natives from Mexico are clamoring to get into our borders. The Texas economy is booming, and it`s only going up from here. We`re TEXAS. And we`re badass. I can see how you`d be jealous, being a virgin from some nowhere Midwest cornfield and all...

Just to say they were very lovely people and actually made me want to visit Texas. When I go there I`d like cyberdyne to show me around.

    This doofus is full of crap. In the White House Nixon tapes released by the National Archives, Nixon repeatedly referred to blacks as "ni66ers" and "jigaboos" in conversations with Kissinger. Nixon later complained to Erlichman that Great Society programs were a waste "because blacks were genetically inferior to whites."
    Klavan also completely got the whole "southern strategy" thing wrong. I`d post links to prove my assertions, but for some reason, I can`t seem to figure out I-A-B`s system to do that. (hit "link" first, then paste the link, or paste the link, then hit "link"? Neither seems to work.

    It`s no use trying to explain the facts of the Southern Strategy to anyone who watches Fox News. The lies have been burned into their heads through repetition.

    Tomarik "Omg This guy is literally lying to people."

    Of course he is. Glenn Beck had a whole show dedicated to teaching the Democratic/ Racist lie. This lie has been told so many times it has become fact to Republican ears. They think they can trick African Americans into voting Republican with this. The thing they don`t understand is black people are not stupid. They know their history. They know that in the South the Democratic Party and the Republican party was reversed for almost 100 years. They know that the Southern conservatives did not move to the the Republican party until Civil Rights passed in the 60`s. They know the truth. This is all basic Junior High history.

    I`m going to be called a liar. I already have been. Check the facts on a conservative web site: Conservapedia.com/Republican. Halfway down the page read Realignment: The South Becomes Republican. It`s only 5 paragraphs long and well worth the read.

    I did that but it said: "ERROR: I`m sorry, you cannot post words longer than 40 characters in length. Posting long words is bad for the formatting of the forums."
    Oh well, thanks for trying. Good link, btw

    The first part is the how the link will read in your post. That apparently can only be 40 characters. After you hit OK there is a second part where you put the actual link in. Hope that works.

    To quote CrakrJak:

    "Can you tell me which president implemented school desegregation in the south ?

    Can you tell me which president implemented the Philadelphia Plan, the first significant federal affirmative action program in 1970 ?

    Can you tell me which president signed the bill that made Dr. MLK Jr Day a national holiday ?

    Can you tell me which president appointed the first woman to the supreme court?"

    And I would add - can you tell me which supreme court justices voted to rule in FAVOR of upholding integration in Brown vs. Board of Education? The republican or democrat seats?

    Is he still lying about everything he says? I didn`t hear one outright falsehood (sure, Lincoln didn`t live in the Parthenon but I think we know how to tell the difference there). Grasping for straws much? Or rather grasping at cotton for your still southern Democrat masters? I`d recommend taking it out of your ears every once in awhile.

    First 3:30 of video = democrats did bad things to blacks in the past.

    Last :30 seconds = "we weren`t even born during slavery days" and "most of us weren`t around for jim crowe" -> but wait, wasn`t that the entire reasoning AGAINST dems? and now you are saying ignore it because we eren`t alive then?

    Or how about how all of the "good things" republicans did in the past were actually PROGRESSIVE, LIBERAL (read: Democrat) ideas?

    Ooo, I C @Spider_sol! If it`s a GOOD thing then the Democrats did it! Regardless of Republicans, you know, actually doing it.
    And if it`s a BAD thing the Republicans did it! Even if it was Clinton, or Kennedy or Obama who, you know, actually did it.

    Have you been talking to @madest? He thinks EXACTLY like that too!

    Examples:
    Ron Reagan cuts taxes for the poor: Democrats did it!
    Bill Clinton cuts welfare rates: Republicans are to blame!
    Obama mentions SIX times `tax cuts for corporate jets` which HE himself signed: Blame the Republicans!

    Wow! I guess Democrats are perfect after all!

    @5Cats: You do know it`s the DemocratIC party, right? I wouldn`t mention this except for your title for the link and for the fact that the narrator consistently, and deliberately, says the "Democrat" party. All of the Republican mouthpieces (Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, et al.) have been doing this for years now, and it`s a practice that`s both stupid and annoying.

    @DoctorSlutba: Opinions differ, but in my opinion, it`s not. The "material" is presented a bit flippantly, but the narrator is trying to change minds.

    For years, the Republican leadership has succeeded in getting millions of White lower middle-class Americans to vote against their own interests and pull the Republican lever. Now, hoping against hope, they`re trying to pull off the same thing with African Americans.

    On July 30, 1866, the Democratic government in New Orleans ordered a raid on a racially integrated meeting of the Republican Party. Results: 40 people killed and 150 injured. You can bet your sweet ass that this won`t ever be mentioned during Black History Month!

    Guess who else is rarely ever mentioned during Black History Month ?



    These proud black republicans, and many others.

    i should probably add that I am not trying to show that conservatives are racist. I am trying to point out the accurate history that the white south pretty much all moved to the Democratic party because of Lincoln. And the white south stayed there for almost 100 years. The only people that associated with the Republican party in the south during this time were the blacks and very very liberal white people. Anyone who uses the south during this time to "prove" that democrats are racist is a liar.

    markust123: The `south` political shift in the recent last 4 decades, has nothing to do with racism and more to do with the rejection of liberal ideology. That shift geographically hasn`t changed the fact that the democrat party supported racism, Jim Crow laws, and slavery in it`s past.

    Isn`t this video one giant troll? (somewhat successful it seems)
    The parties shift over time, both in name and ideology which then varies from location to location.

    Just because someone calling themselves republican or democrat claim to be X doesn`t mean they believe in X. If the political scene changes, the response from the politician will as well.

    How many times have we seen a politician deny something they said on video?

    So instead of painting our bodies in the colors of our favorite team in an attempt to argue which team is slightly less racist... why not accept that these teams have bigger problems beyond their talking points and that WE THE PEOPLE need to talk to EACH OTHER regardless of label. Both liberals and conservatives have GOOD POINTS that will work differently in different areas. To think one is "right" is absolute foolishness.

    I digress now so that you may all continue poking each other with sticks and thinking up be

    The Democratic party that supported racism, Jim Crow laws and slavery consisted of liberals and conservatives. It wasn`t a party that was racist. It was the majority of the white South. Do you honestly think the white South would remain in the Republican party of Lincoln? The only people in the South who associated with the Republican party during this time were blacks and very liberal people. This is why Martin Luther King was Republican. He would have switched to the Democratic party if he had lived. Have you forgotten your junior high history or are you just lying to get a rise out of people?

    This is from the Conservapedia link below:

    "In the century after Reconstruction ended in 1877, the white South identified with the Democratic Party. The Democrats` lock on power was so strong, the region was called the "Solid South."

    "Before 1964, the southern Democrats saw their party as the defender of the southern way of life, which included a respect for states` rights and an appreciation for traditional southern values. They repeatedly warned against the aggressive designs of Northern liberals and Republicans, as well as the civil rights activists they denounced as "outside agitators." Thus there was a serious barrier to becoming a Republican."

    In 1948 the conservative portion of the Southern Democratic party formed the States Rights Democratic Party (Dixiecrats). The conservative Dixiecrats opposed racial integration and wanted to retain Jim Crow laws and white supremacy. Strom Thurmond was the most famous Dixiecrat and a huge racist. The Dixiecrat party by their very creation clearly shows that the conservatives in the south were way more racist. Not saying the liberals weren`t but the scale tips heavily towards the conservatives when it comes to racism in the old south.

    markust: Comparing conservatives today with conservatives in the south 50 years ago is like comparing apples and oranges, and that`s not too far a stretch since many apples are grown in the north and oranges are grown in the south.

    There are liberals now just as racist as any 1960`s southern democrat. They see the way to handle the blacks and hispanics is to keep them poor on welfare, medicare, and food stamps, pump them up for votes by promising them more of the same and keep them clueless as to the modern-day slavery they remain in.

    The black upper and middle classes in America are growing and have realized their brothers are enslaved by entitlements from the government in exchange for votes for liberal democrats. That is why more and more blacks are becoming republicans, and are being welcomed to participate in the party to help educate and free their brethren from the disproportionate cycle of welfare, drugs, crime, and prison they are in.
