In an interview with the Daily Beast, living legend and Oscar-winner Robert Duvall blasted the Civil Rights film "The Butler" as "very inaccurate." The 83 year-old star added, "JFK had one of the worst Civil Rights voting records," and "All the atrocities in the South were committed by the Democratic Party."

Duvall, a well-known Republican, also spoke about his growing dissatisfaction with the Republican Party, which he called "a mess."  Duvall describes himself as pro-choice when it comes to abortion and says he's ready to vote Independent in 2016.

Let me say it this way: my wife’s from Argentina, she’s been here for a while, and she’s very smart. She calls herself a “tree-hugging Republican,” but she might even vote Democrat next time because the Republican Party is a mess. I’ll probably vote Independent next time. I think it was Jack Kerouac who said something like, “Don’t run down my country. My people are immigrants, so I believe in this country with all its faults. To me, it’s a big country that’s made mistakes.” Some of the bleeding-heart left-wing, extreme left-wing, are actually different from liberals. That movie The Butler? It’s very inaccurate. JFK had one of the worst Civil Rights voting records. And the Rockefeller’s were much more liberal with the blacks. All the atrocities in the South were committed by the Democratic Party, but now, everything’s been turned around in a strange way. Some of these very conservative Republicans… I don’t know, man. I believe in a woman’s choice. I believe in certain things. I hear they booed Rick Perry last night on the Jimmy Kimmel show. But it’s a great country. We’ve done bad things. Slavery was terrible. One-third of all Freedmen in New Orleans fought for the South. I can’t figure that out. Those things aren’t told in the history books. There’ve been lots of contradictions and this and that. But I think the country’s okay, and hopefully it will survive.


The full interview is very good and well worth your time.

The KKK was founded as the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.

Got to give the Democrats credit. They have both the KKK and the Black Panthers. They are very much equal opportunity haters.

Couple that with the Libtards embrace of Margaret Sanger and her campaign to exterminate blacks and other minorities through Abortion and you just have to scratch your head about these vile and evil reprobates.

If the GOP had half a brain some of this video could be used as a campaign ad.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

With people like Reince Prebus heading up the GOP, that's a moot point.

You know how we always say the Democrats are the culture of victims? We were wrong. The GOP is the culture of victims.
