Ted Cruz's father is a crazy old fool.

Obama has no connection to Kenya.  Why should he "go back" to a place he has no connection to?

It would appear the obsessive hatred of the son transfers to the father.

If it weren't for the gratuitous personal insult this guy would have nothing to say...and he says nothing.

Obama's dad is from Kenya, and he was involved with Odinga.

Pretty commonly known (no comment on Cruz's father statement- his father isn't in politics and doesn't speak for Ted). The Democrats as a whole were initially opposed and fought against Civil Rights (not just the 'Dixiecrats' as they like to claim).

Eisenhower(R) was actually fast tracking Civil Rights when he was in office. That came to a stop when JFK was elected. Remember, it was JFK and his Attorney General brother Bobby Kennedy who wiretapped MLK, attempted to set him up with prostitutes, and had him arrested. It wasn't until they saw it was politically expedient to jump on that wagon that they pretended to change their tune. When LBJ took over, in his own words the great society was to "Keep those n****** voting Democrat for 200 years"..  They didn't care about true civil rights, they just wanted the political voting block.
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

[[ Al Gore's father voted against Civil Rights Act of 1964 ]]

Gore Sr. did the right thing.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 has been one of the most destructive pieces of legislation ever passed, not far behind ObamaCare.

It accomplished completely the opposite of what it was "supposed to" do. It did not "make people equal". Quite the contrary, it created an entire new group of "specially-privilged" persons, entitled to special treatment to which others were not.

Intended to stop "discrimination", the CRA enshrined it into American politics.

Again, Al Gore Sr. did the right thing.

I realize this opinion may be unpopular is today's poltically-correct environment, even on so-called "conservative" forums...

Sorry, mountaineer. I am not going to trust the sod to accidentally tell the truth, even once.   :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly:

But - who cares? Al Gore's father voted X way. Does that mean Al Gore would? You Dad never done something embarrassing in front of you?

The only thing it tells me is that we really need a law/tradition/rule that puts a generation between members of the same family running for office.

Sorry, but the Civil Rights Act was an important piece of legislation that forced a halt to separate but equal in the United States. But, it did set the stage for what came after.

It wasn't the Civil Rights Act that brought about state-sponsored reverse discrimination and the consequent race conscious society. That actually began in 1961 when JFK issued an executive order establishing the EEOC. It was furthered in 1965 in a speech Pres. Johnson gave framing the concepts underlying affirmative-action and quotas before the graduating class at Howard University. And it was cemented into place by Pres. Nixon in his "Philadelphia order" guaranteeing fair hiring practices in construction jobs.

Our special protected class grew through the tactical action by the bleeding hearts at Southern Poverty Law Center who brought thousands of lawsuits before thousands of liberal judges. It was court action since the Civil Rights Act that killed meritocracy in America, beginning in 1978 with the University of California v. Bakke all the way through court rulings in the 1990s that affirmed quotas.

Affirmative-action is the problem that spread through the actions of thousands of liberal educators on local school boards and by liberal professors in colleges and universities across the country. And it's been reinforced through the constant drumbeat of a liberal media that sees only skin color and not character and tells only the version of the story that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton want Americans to hear.

Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-AZ) also voted against it.

Sen. Cruz' father is harming conservatism, by his "birther like" remarks.

With CRA there would not have been affirmative action.

The Civil Rights Act did for the concept of "equality", what "Hate Crime Laws" have done for crime.

The conservative response to the leftist cry for laws to punish "hate crimes", and for "immigration reform", is to "enforce the laws that are already on the books".
Very well.

The appropriate conservative response to cries for a "civil rights law" should have been the same. Jefferson's clause in The Declaration has been there since the beginning.

Indeed, I believe there were a number of "conservatives" (the word meant something else back then) who DID argue that CRA was not needed and should not become law.

Al Gore's father was in good company on the Democrat side of the House and Senate.

HOUSE VOTE FOR 1964 CIVIL RIGHTS ACT
Democrats  For 153   (63%)    Against  91
Republicans   For  136   (80%)   Against  35

SENATE VOTE FOR 1964 CIVIL RIGHTS ACT
Democrats  For 46   (69%)    Against  21
Republicans   For  27   (80%)   Against  6

And if you know the history of the 1964 Civil Rights Act you know the efforts for passing such an ACT go back to 1946 with Harry Truman who faced stiff opposition from his own Democrats. In fact Democratic Senator Bilbo called on every "red blooded Anglo Saxon man  to resort to any means" to keep blacks from voting. They even stood in his way when Truman introduced Civil Rights legislation that included an anti-lynching law. Truman placed Civil Rights into the platform at the Democratic National Convention and the result was a walkout. Eisenhower was the next to champion the cause, but again the Democrat controlled committees kept blocking the legislation from being voted on. They were known as the burial ground of civil rights legislation. The democrats even performed a filibuster to prevent a vote a civil rights bill from being voted on.  The only reason we didn't have a 1946 Civil Rights Act, or a 1957 Civil Rights Act, and we had to wait until 1964 was because of Democrat opposition, and even then the majority of them voted NO.

Fishrrman, I think you underestimate the positive impact of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights ACT of 1965. Registered Black Voters  in Mississippi alone went from 5% in 1960 to 60%.  They were not afraid they would be hung anymore or having their houses torched for showing up to vote. That is a good thing, don't you think?   Where it went wrong for the Republican's  was there was a popular false rumor circulated around the Black community that the Republicans would not extend the Voting Rights Bill if they got back into power. [thank you Barry Goldwater].  That scared them away from voting solid Republican, and swung them over heavy to voting Democrat. Those false rumors that Republicans want to take away blacks rights and return them to slavery continue to this day.
