The hatred merely was for the federal curtailing of their property rights.

Just plain fucking evil.

And their children were ready and willing to take up the mantle and protest black people entering the White House 50 years later.
and muslims. and gays.

But of course, it was always about federal powers, and this was just a mob of angry constitutional scholars.

Fifty years from now, anti-gay protesters will look the same.
Yes, but it'll take a while for them to be represented as such in social-studies textbooks.
Bullshit. Gay is not the new black. Yes there are people who hate gays, but the acceptance and voracity of homophobia is greatly exaggerated by you libtards. You guys exaggerate this to fullfill your smug sense of liberal guilt.
Don't Ask Don't Tell fell with hardly a whimper from homophobes.
Oh look. The monkey has opinions. What a surprise.
Look, I know it feels good to have opinions, and spew your vile shit wherever your idiot manchild hands can put them, but it helps to square your opinions with reality. For example, there have been plenty of anti-gay movements sweeping the nation. We don't have to make up stories about gays being treated as second class citizens, or being lynched, or any of the rest of it.... we just watch the news.
It also helps to use words correctly. "guilt" is not felt "smugly". If we're feeling guilty, then by definition we're not smug. The two words don't go together. You fucking chimp.

Fuck the South, and fuck the rest of the nation. Honestly, the rest of the nation isn't substantially better than the South... they're just slightly less bad.
Oregon remains, probably, the most racist state in the union.
AMERRIKKKA IS SO RACIST. OMG, GAYS BLACKS AND CHINESE PEOPLE ARE SO HORRIBLY OPPRESSED MDLFJADLKJF!!!
You are a retard.
Dude, was that supposed to be a mocking tone? Because all you were doing was stating facts in a funny voice. Seriously, practically anyone who isn't male, white, heterosexual and sexually repressed these days is getting the raw deal by a bunch of bible-thumping swingdicks who get their ideas on social morality from a big invisible beard in the sky. No matter how you posture, Cena, you're not going to make the argument look any better for your side.

Hate, sure. Fear of this calibre is pretty ugly as well.

This is bullshit, they make you read about MLK in American high schools, but they gloss over this like it never happened. This was America 50 years ago, show this to high school freshman and let them see how their grandparents were acting and maybe they will look on the Tea Party and Birthers in a new light. These groups are the last remaining extension of bold-faced public racism in the US. They're the tail end of a long, terrible history. Now watch Fox news and you can see where the fear in the eyes of all those talking heads comes from.

Yeah, "glossed over". I mean, I knew this happened, but seeing this is actually upsetting to me.
To think about the girl who went there by herself, and then all of the slurs hurled at her and how scared she must've been, it just hurts to think about.

Yesterday, my Republican co-worker told me "America is not a racist nation" which was after telling me Selma, Alabama was an "extreme example" of why we need a Federal government to keep the states in line. He's 36. We've still got a long way to go.
America WAS racist. Was as in in the past. You guys just hate America so you completely exaggerate the hate that exists here.

And to think this is only about fifty-five years ago...
|memedumpster - 2011-05-14 |
Now the whole nation is like this with the Muslim fear. Completely unlovable country we have here.
Exaggerate much? Muslim is not the new black. Muslims are completely free in this country and instances of hatred toward them are minuscule compared to this.
At least use facts to back up your smug sense of liberal guilt.
Getting awfully defensive there, Cena.

Trying to argue that we should just let this go because it was in the distant past is absurd.
It's May 17, 2011 today. 50 years ago THIS WEEK was the infamous Birmingham riots where several freedom riders were beaten into the hospital for having the audacity to sit together in a mixed-racial group on a public bus.
This is not ancient history. Today's middle-aged Americans are the children of people who would club anti-segregationists in broad daylight while reporters took photos. That kind of hate does not disappear in one generation.
I don't think my grandmother left her farm in Iowa until she was well into her 60s.
