The publication said in 1957 President Dwight Eisenhower, a Republican, deployed the 82nd Airborne Division to desegregate the Little Rock, Ark., schools over the resistance of Democrat Gov. Orval Faubus. Further, three years later, Eisenhower signed the GOP's 1960 Civil Rights Act after it survived a five-day, five-hour filibuster by 18 Senate Democrats, and in 1964, Democrat President Lyndon Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act after former Klansman Robert Byrd's 14-hour filibuster, and the votes of 22 other Senate Democrats, including Tennessee's Al Gore Sr., failed to scuttle the plan.
Six Senate Republicans vote against the Civil Rights Act of 1964, while 21 Senate Democrats opposed it. It passed by an overall vote of 73-27. In the House, 96 Democrats and 34 Republicans voted against the Civil Rights Act, passing with an overall 290-130 vote. While most Democrats in both chambers voted for it, the bulk of the opposition still was from Democrats
I don’t know why the Democrats and false Republicans complained about Senator Ted Cruz’s 21 hour filibuster. On May 6, 1960 when Republican President Dwight Eisenhower signed the Republicans’ Civil Rights Act of 1960, he overcame the 125-hour, around-the-clock filibuster by 18 Senate Democrats.

Senate Democrats filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act for two continuous months. I wish their modern counterparts could find either the stones or the moral compass to take a stand like that for a position that's on the *right* side of history.

Here's the kettle calling the pot black: Democrats are the party with a history of racism: Between 1840 and 1860 there were six Democratic Party platforms in support of slavery. Between 1868 and 1948 there were 20 Democratic Party platforms that either were silent on or supported segregation legislation in Congress. The Democrats enthusiastically passed the Jim Crow Laws between 1876 and 1965. These laws were enacted at the state and local levels to segregate the black people in buses, schools, and all public places. It called for the black people to be “separate but equal.” Rosa Parks became famous for refusing to sit at the back of the bus; she failed to obey these laws. The Democrats created the Ku Klux Klan. University of North Carolina historian Allen Trelease described the Ku Klux Klan as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.” The 1964 Civil Rights Act was opposed by 75% of Democrats in the House of Representatives and 80% of Senate Democrats. The opposition included former Klansman an ...
