    Argh, Chris Farris, or as we know him today, Androgynous Garrick Cutler, will be bringing “Fartin’ Wallace Dread” to Cobb County in search of booty.

  2. GodHatesTrash says:

    I thought it was “George Wallace Reincarnated Fred”.

    And there’s no airport in Cobb Country, so where is Fred gonna get his booty at – is there a Greyhound station in Marietta?

    GHT doesn’t history very well either. The last two terms Wallace was re-elected Governor, he was re-elected because of the African American vote.

    GHT doesn’t care about the truth, he or she just likes to spout mindless venom. Truth is secondary.

    Debbie, George Wallace only changed his stripes after Bremer shot him and put him in a wheelchair for the rest of life.

    Prior to that he was a committed segregationist, racist thugs like Bull Connor had easy access to him; Klan klowns were his lieutenants, aids, and strongest supporters.

    Anyhow, here’s what Dr. King said about George Corley Wallace and the Birmingham church bombing, WHERE 4 BLACK GIRLS LESS THAN 14 YEARS OLD WERE KILLED:

    King wired Wallace that “the blood of four little children … is on your hands. Your irresponsible and misguided actions have created in Birmingham and Alabama the atmosphere that has induced continued violence and now murder.”

    Anyhow, you want to defend lynchmobbers and thugs, be my guest. I expect nothing more from you.

    I have always despised Wallace. Morris Dees of the Southern Proverty Law Center once called Wallace a populist not a racist . I guess he supports lynchmobbers and thugs too. I guess that African Americans that worked for Wallace’s campaign also support lynchmobbers and thugs according to your logic.

    The bottom line is that the Democrats were in power in the South during the Civil Rights struggle. The Democrats tried to prevent African Americans from voting and achieving equality. It was a Republican President that sent troops to Little Rock. Yet African Americans just give the Democratic Party a pass on all this and vote enmasse for Democrats.

    You were off target comparing Wallace to Thompson. I am not all suprised by you. You make false and wild accusations and obviously from your writings here and on the AJC Political Insider Blog have a large chip on your shoulder. You seem to hate conservatives and Christians. I could care less what you think.

    Debbie,

    The parties as they were in the South during that period are in no way the same as they are now. I’m not sure what your point was but somehow equating racist southern Democrats of the Civil Rights era with the far left Democrats of the current era is far off the mark. If anything, many of those “racist Southern Democrats” from a few decades back have switched parties and currently vote Republican. With your logic doesn’t that imply that the same racist attitudes of yesteryear are now seeping into the GOP?

  7. debbie0040 says:

    I was not trying to equate the two. I was pointing out that African Americans vote enmasse for a party that tried to keep them from voting and having equality. African Americans have negative connotations about Republicans and the African American leaders have at times, referred to racist Republicans. That is off target. They have tunnel vision and fail to look at the history of their own party.

    The Democratic elected officials seemed to get a pass on certain things that GOP elected officials don’t. There is a double standard. IE:Robert Byrd, Trent Lott.

    When GHT mentioned KKK he failed to mention that you have a Democratic Senator that once was part of the KKK. (Robert Byrd)

    The Republican Party is in no way racist.

  8. CHelf says:

    Debbie,

    I will try this one more time. And you are equating the two. The Democratic Party, or better yet the southern Democrats, who worked dilligently to stop civil rights legislation is in no way comparable to the current Democratic Party. And yes, many of those “racist southern Democrats” back from that period did switch parties. Strom is the leading figure. Lester Maddox ran as a Republican. So you can deny history and make misguided broad generalizations all day but you’re completely wrong.

  9. debbie0040 says:

    It is wrong to label the Republican Party as racist and Republican African Americans as “Uncle Toms” or shun them as some African American leaders do.

    Racism is wrong and I abhor it.

    Face the fact there is a double standard with some leaders.

    I am not denying history. I am pointing out history. You are the one that is denying it . You mentioned Strom but did not say a word about Robert Byrd. I guess you give him a pass because he is a Democrat.

  10. CHelf says:

    You’re denying it because you are denying that the GOP has many of those old school southern Dems in their ranks. Just as you say it is wrong to label the GOP as a whole as racist, it is the same wrong to label the Democratic Party as racist. I’m not talking about Byrd. I’m talking about Strom and others. I don’t give anyone a pass but it is obvious you give passes. I have no problem saying anything about the Dems. I am a conservative but have no problems acknowledging faults on either side. You cannot even find it in yourself to admit reality that there are those from the 50’s and 60’s once southern Democrats who are now within the ranks of the GOP.

    You see Debbie, your problem is you see no fault with people on your side but the other side has ALL the fault. When confronted with the truth, you divert to attacking the other side. Your own history shows this. Or better yet you copy and paste links to some other odds and ends. Debbie, it’s OK to admit you’re wrong. If you don’t swallow that pride, I’m going to invest in a certain steak company from Omaha because you will be keeping them in business for quite some time.

    Byrd is an unctuous conman, the hillbillies of West Virginia are glad he brings home all the bacon from DC.

    As long as we’re on the subject of Democrat racists, let’s not forget Zig-Zag Zell Miller, who ran as a segregationist for Congress twice in the 1960s, and was the Chief of Staff for Lester Maddox.
