Keep banging that drum, bud. I'll see you one Robert Byrd (who later recanted and apologized for his previous racist activities), and I'll raise you:
Jesse Helms (Democrat, turned Republican)
Strom Thurmond (Democrat, turned Republican)
Lester Maddox (Democrat, became Independent)
Trent Lott (Democrat, turned Republican, member of Council of Conservative Citizens)
George Wallace (Democrat, turned Independent, ran on segregationist platform)
So, you have to ask yourself (and if you know anything about political history, which it is clear you do not, you already know the answer), why
did all these guys leave the Democratic Party...and why did many of them either run against other Democrats in place of or alongside Republicans, start conservative groups, or become Republicans all together?
I won't be nice and answer that question for you, I will just allow you to sit there with a stupid look on your face.
Now, kindly...SHUT THE **** UP.
