Let me know. Educate me. Make me understand. I'm all ears. Why? Why is it that with every major positive change in these United States, you're on
the wrong side of the field? Level with me here. Throw some mud at me while you're at it!
It didn't help with the fact that it was conservative southerners who lead the opposition
against desegregation at both the State and Federal
during the 60s.
It's a fact of history that all of those States and their State legislatures who enforced Jim Crow laws were historically and still
are conservative red states today.
And no let's not use the excuse that the main reason for conservative opposition to desegration back then was purely that of 'States rights'
and the constitution.
Conservatives supported these laws themselves and attempted to enforce them
in their respective states through their OWN state legislatures on their
very own residents.
Unfortunately for these conservative groups they suffered a loss
in this battle thanks to the Civil Rights
How about allowing two consenting adults to freely marry and have the same rights as the rest of us?
Oh that was a no no for conservatives as well!
You couldn't stand on the right
side of history on that issue either. Lord knows we need to tell non-whites and whites in our States who they *must* marry. Thankfully with the Loving
V. Virginia Supreme Court case of 67', another loss.
More recently it was conservatives couldn't stand for gays and lesbians
gaining the right to
. That fell with Obergefell v. Hodges
a mere two years ago. Another loss
The list goes on. It goes on.
-State enforced segegration of public schools?
Yep, deep red
Kansas, pushed by conservatives.
Shot down in 55' by the Supreme Court case of Brown V. Board of Education. Another loss.
-Slavery? Was enforced overwhelmingly by red southern conservative states.
Brought down by
of the Civil War and the emancipation proclamation.
-Abortion? The decision on whether women have the right to choose
. Conservatives lead the charge against
granting this right to women.
Brought down by the Roe V. Wade ruling of 73'. Another
I mean we look at all these major social turning points in history, and I always seem to find those on the right to be on the wrong side, the
side, the side that wanted to maintain the status quo.
Maybe I'm looking at it wrong? Let me know. Also let me know about positive events, turning points, where conservatives supported and liberals
opposed? The Iraq war? Mission accomplished
right? Tax cuts for the rich? Cliven Bundy? Fox news? Christ. I can't think of anything.
Throw some mud at me. Tell me I'm partisan. I only see facts.
