Nixon's Southern Strategy has destroyed the ReTHUG Party

Rev Al just showed stats from the LA TImes - 54% of anti-Sandy votes came from the South; 59% of Fiscal Cliff votes came from the South - the lunatic base is made up of Southern White males who would support slavery in a heartbeat.

6. People were saying the Republican party was gravely wounded when Nixon was driven from office

These fuckers have more lives than Jason and the Alien creature's zombie love child.

I wouldn't turn my back on them if they had a silver stake right through their heart, if they find another Reagan we're in trouble plenty.

7. The change began with Nixon's 1968 campaign but wasn't complete until Reagan, 1980

 

It's quite instructive to look up GOP quadrennial platform declarations from 1968 through 1980.

Pay particular attention to the wording related to the Equal Rights Amendment and abortion.

8. Thanks for the links

In 1968 the word Johnson is mentioned about 4 times
In 1980 the word Carter is mentioned about 70 times...hmmm

9. Nothing will destroy the ReThugs

They are like cockroaches. Thanks to the southern strategy disgusting backwater things which we thought had tackled by 1970 are now living on in mainstream politics.
