    additional claims:

    No liberal will win the argument that big government ended segregation either. It was conservative people armed with rolled up constitutions that defeated the poll taxes and opened the white only schools. The rumors about the National Guard are a liberal media lie.
    Reportedly, after the interviewer broke out in laughter, DeMint's last statement was "It's true because I say so."

    If we abandon our allies and their issues, who will defend us and ours?

    •  You are correct Jim. (9+ / 0-)

      White conservatives from the Deep South, especially South Carolina, Mississippi and Alabama armed only with rolled up Constitutions brought freedom and equality to their black brothers by marrying off their daughters and sisters to blacks, electing blacks to important political positions, by funding an endless supply of scholarships for blacks at previously all white schools, and most importantly by opening up Sunday church services in all white churches to blacks, where they were and still are welcomed with open arms.  Where would we be without the magnanimous, divinely open minded and open hearted conservative white southern man?
