  •  What dreck from Limbaugh (5+ / 0-)

    The only time conservatives advocated IN FAVOR of gun control was when they worried about 60s radicals arguing against the establishment from the political left, like the Black Panthers.  There's NO WAY they wanted African-Americans having guns, in Selma or anywhere else.

    And the whole point of the Civil Rights movement was NONVIOLENT protest.  The protesters could never have maintained their hold on the moral high round except by making clear that it was their conservative opponents who were willing to use violence to maintain the status quo.

    And John Lewis didn't SAY he was "hit upside the head.  He WAS assaulted.  And violently so.  It's not debatable.  It's not a question of Lewis says he was, and others say he wasn't, so who can tell for sure.

    For God's sake, there are pictures.
