Sixteen senators didn't support the anti-lynching resolution, by AMERICAblog's count -- 15 Republicans and 1 Democrat.
But ... but ... but back in 2002 Ann Coulter said Democrats are the racist party!
What the [Trent] Lott incident shows is that Republicans have to be careful about letting Democrats into our party. Back when they supported segregation, Lott and [Strom] Thurmond were Democrats. This is something the media are intentionally hiding to make it look like the Republican Party is the party of segregation and race discrimination, which it never has been....
Republicans made Southern Democrats drop the race nonsense when they entered the Republican Party. Democrats supported race discrimination, then for about three years they didn't, now they do again. They've just changed which race they think should be discriminated against. In the 1920s, the Democratic platforms didn't even call for anti-lynching legislation as the Republican platforms did.
Grab a fork, Ann. Those are your words. Start eating.
