LBJ wasn’t a friend of civil rights ft. Burt Folsom | #TruthStraightUp

The history that the Left tells often isn’t the full story. Progressives praise LBJ for championing civil rights, but the truth is the former KKK member spent his entire career opposing civil rights. At the same time, the Left frames Barry Goldwater as an enemy of civil rights. Goldwater spent his entire life pursuing integration. The real history of these two men and the revisionist history the Left purports tell two different stories. Barry Goldwater was a friend of civil rights, LBJ was not.

Folsom: What you thought you knew about history sometimes just isn’t so.
In the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Lyndon Johnson, a progressive, gets a lot of credit for getting the bill passed. Barry Goldwater, a conservative, is often criticized in the textbooks. In truth, Lyndon Johnson, though he was a progressive, opposed civil rights almost all of his political life. In fact, at one time was a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Barry Goldwater, on the other hand, was an integrationist. He helped integrate his department store that his family owned in Phoenix, Arizona, he helped integrate the Phoenix public schools, and he helped integrate the Arizona Air Force. He helped to integrate all sorts of public facilities in Arizona. The truth is that Barry Goldwater, although he was a conservative, was a friend of civil rights. Lyndon Johnson, the progressive, was not.
