I had NO IDEA! Did you?


Did YOU know that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was a REPUBLICAN???

Yep! He was!

Now that I think about it, though, it only makes sense. The Republican party was the party of Abraham Lincoln and Emancipation. The Republican party was the party of Reconstruction.

The Democratic Party grew strong in the South precisely because it opposed those laws and policies imposed on her, after the Civil War, by the Republicans.

George Wallace, governor of Alabama during King's historic works and the nightmarish school desegregation imposed by Federal Law (I remember watching on CBS News when I was a child) was a Southern Democrat. The Democrats opposed, vehemently, desegregation and other Civil Rights legislation.

What else could King have been, but a Republican?

However, Obama and the Democratic party have made Dr. King their token figurehead as they seek to brainwash blacks and win their votes.

Do you think I'm going to be quiet about this little bit of information? Uh.... no.

LOL - NO!!! I had no idea! But it doesn't really surprise me, since Graham is from Charlotte. To a lot of native Southerners, the Republican Party is the party that enforced Reconstruction and made the South a miserable thing, and the Democrats were the defenders of States' Rights against the overbearing federal government. My dad was a Democrat; he's probably spinning in his grave now - one direction over my becoming a Republican, and the other direction over the state of the Democratic party in support of abortion and gay marriage.

When I moved to Alabama I came to the realization that southern Republicans would be Democrats in the north and southern Democrats would be Republicans in the north. At least it seemed that way to me.
