'The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.' George Orwell
Historical Revisionists have depicted Republicans as racists and angry old white men, when in fact the polar opposite is true.
Case in Point, Al Gore Jr., former Vice President and current 'Climate Change' Warrior made a speech while he was still VP claiming that his father Al Gore Sr. lost his Senate seat due to his support of civil rights legislation. That's quite a bizarre statement giving his fathers legacy as a KKK supporter and one who voted against most Civil Rights legislation, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The debates on the house floor led to the longest filibuster in History - led by none other than Al Gore Sr.
Al Gore, Sr. not only voted against the 1964 civil rights act he sought to disembowel it. He tried to have it amended after its passage to basically render it useless. He tried, but was stopped by Republicans and a few northern Democrats to send the Act to the Senate Judiciary Committee with an amendment to say "in defiance of a court desegregation order, federal funds could not be held from any school districts." The Amendment was defeated by a vote of 74-25 with all but one Republican voting against Gores amendment.
Fast forward to Gore Jr tenure as VP. Gore jr. didn't want Blacks around him any more than absolutely necessary, in fact Black members of the Secret Service sued because they were not being promoted to positions guarding the Vice-President.
Fellow Democrat Cynthia A. McKinney, a Georgia congresswoman made the following statement on her website. 'Gore's Negro tolerance level has never been too high,...I've never known him to have more than one black person around him at any given time. I'm not shocked, but I am certainly saddened by this revelation' See: The Washington Times - September 12, 2000
'Al has a famously tin ear on race. His Secret Service bodyguards say he's not comfortable around blacks. McKinney ... tried to bring this up, too, until she was told to sit down. Shut up, the Democratic Party elders advised.' See: The Washington Times - October 6, 2000
The present day Gores cloistered racism should not be laid solely on his door step, he is merely a product of his upbringing. Mattie Lucy Payne was Gores Nanny and housekeeper during his childhood, she was a Black woman who was kept in her place - not much unlike the current African American supporters of the Democratic Party.
From the Drudge Manifesto an interview with Payne.
Payne recalls being kept in the backseat of the car [on family trips] -- as the Gore family dined in 'Whites Only' restaurants! Payne says she complained bitterly about the high temperatures in the car while she waited.
In modern day America it is illegal to lock a dog in a hot car - apparently in the Gores version of America dogs were better than Negroes.
