The GOP always HAS been the party of civil rights. It was FOUNDED on the notion. It CONTINUED the cry and until LBJ ( a vile racist) decided that for the sake of political gain, he'd "have them ******s voting Democratic for 100 years" by introducing the 1964 Civil rights act.
Of course BEFORE that - he was the LEADING Senator that OPPOSED Eisenhower's Civil rights bill that was nearly identical. He got nearly all of the teeth taken out of it.
One of the many reasons I stopped posting at DU is their justification of groups like Code Pink and their sanctification of Cindy Sheehan, whom I see as a woman whose grief turned into a genuine mental health issue that they were feeding off of in a way.
As far as Kent State is concerned, I was a little kid when that happened. From all accounts I've read, it was a very tragic mistake, one in which the NG personnel were somehow misled into firing at the protestors. It's not Nixon's fault, as he isn't the one who had the authority to call the Ohio National Guard to a college campus. But most people today accept the way CSNY put it in their song as the official story.
Campus police learned from that how to use tear gas. It's probably prevented numerous tragedies from happening during drunken riots in East Lansing, if nowhere else.:D

Can't wait to get it and add it to my Library.
I love Ann Couilter's writing. She's funny, she does LOADS of preparation. I have Demonic and can't wait to get started on it.
Tim McVeigh was definitely not liberal... or anything even close to resembling the modern day conservative caricature of liberals...
... its got to be one of the most egregious attempts at historical revisionism by Ann Coulter. Blatant. It really does out her as a nutjob, almost as delusional as McVeigh, though.
Tim McVeigh was about guns and God and fighting the government.
