The great exploiters:

With the passing of Coretta Scott King, Democrats have been hot to play the race card again going as far as Mrs. King's funeral to take shots at the President and Republican Party.

How about we just take a little look at the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that her husband helped get passed that Democrats have used year in and year out to exploit these same groups for political gains.

Interesting many Democrats were actually against the bill, including Albert Gore Sr., Al Gore (the darling of the left) father who voted against the bill. Funny how Democrats like to keep that one quite.

Another interesting point is if you look at the voting on the 1964 Act, Democrats voted for it 153-96 and Republicans voted for it 138-43.

That means Democrats passed it by 61% and Republicans by 76%! Hmm looks like Republicans were more in favor of the bill then Democrats.

Not that we should be surprised since it was Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, who developed the Emancipation Proclamation that banned slavery. Could you imagine if Democrat passed that? We would never hear the end of it.
