LBJ used every trick he had, every bullying threat, every ounce of influence to kill several Republican-sponsored bills in the 1950’s that were essentially the same as his Civil Rights and Voter Right Acts. He did so in part because he was a racist and a bigot, but also because he did not want the Republicans to get the credit. By 1965, the Civil Rights movement had widespread support and the passage of the Civil Rights Act was inevitable, and he went along with it so the Democrats would get the credit. But unlike the earlier Republican bills he killed, LBJ added the other provisions in The Great Society to buy the votes of black people with free stuff to keep them on the Democrat Plantation and voting Democrat for the “next 200 years.” Remember his famous, Ill have those N***** VOTING Democrat for the next two hundred years line. Did you know that percentage wise more Republicans voted for the Civil Rights act than Democrats? I bet you did, and that you just forgot to mention it right? Al Gores daddy also voted NO which is often glossed over so effortlessly. I understand your desire to divert away from the topic, but its all good Leasty. I have given you more credit than you deserve and have admitted you are mildly amusing, but i doubt if you could even dominate Michael J. Fox while playing jenga.
