It was homecoming night at Strom Thurmond and Gregory Bryant put on a show for the home crowd.

Still, not the type of defendant Strom Thurmond had in mind when he pushed through the rioting act as an amendment to the Civil Rights Act of 1968!

11) There was never any discussion about Bush taking over – to say nothing of the Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill (D-MA) or President Pro Tempore in the Senate Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-SC). Haig followed all three of those men in the line of succession.

TL;DR: Strom Thurmond and co. wanted to go after Stokely Carmichael and H. Rap Brown.

It took more than half a century for federal courts to seriously evaluate the First Amendment issues in the anti-rioting act… and only after the act was applied to white supremacists (and not the Black activists that Strom Thurmond wanted to target).

NEW: The Trump administration is deploying a couple of rarely-used federal statutes from 1968 in their 2020 campaign against rioters. Those statutes were intended to target Black activists. And Strom Thurmond played a key role in getting them passed.

Biden can barely utter a sentence without lying or completely forgetting what he was talking about. He has a lengthy, multi-decade record of atrocious policy positions. He called Strom Thurmond one of his “closest friends.” This is the best they have to offer? Jesus.

Joe Biden claiming credit for the Israel-UAE deal on behalf of the Obama administration is like Strom Thurmond claiming credit for the Civil Rights Act.

Biden gets heat for his eulogy for Strom Thurmond, but in 1985 also he gave a speech praising segregationist Democrat Sen. John Stennis by comparing positively him to Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson. From a story I did last year:

After I got arrested in apartheid South Africa, my close friend Strom Thurmond told me, ‘Joey, if you’re gonna run for President against Donald Trump one day, you have to pick Susan B. Anthony as your running mate.’ So that’s what I’m doing. Let’s get it done, fat.”

A white surrogate for Buttigieg said @ninaturner  should be “muzzeled.” A white surrogate for Strom Thurmond’s friend Joe Biden told Turner she has no standing to discuss Martin Luther King Jr. Now Biden is celebrating an endorsement from Mayor Stop and Frisk, Muslim Surveillance.

Joe Biden called the vicious racist segregationist Strom Thurmond “one of my closest friends.” And one of his white surrogates Hilary Rosen has the audacity to lecture @ninaturner  about Martin Luther King Jr. on national TV. Disgusting.

The "big switch" is a big lie since, with the solitary exception of Strom Thurmond, NONE of the racist Dixiecrats became Republicans

THE SWITCH THAT WASN'T: Besides Strom Thurmond, can the Left name any Dixiecrats who switched to the GOP? No, because there weren't any!
