Every so often a member of the Republican Party makes a comment revealing he or she was sound asleep when the class was learning American history. The governor of New Jersey was explaining his opposition to legislation that would allow gay marriage when the following words of ignorance were uttered: “The fact of the matter is I think people would have been happy to have a referendum on civil rights rather than fight an die in the streets in the south.”
He must be kidding. The large majority of white Southerners OPPOSED civil rights. Chris, do you understand that black skinned people in the South prior to the Civil Rights act: DID NOT POSSESS THE RIGHT TO VOTE!!
If ignorance was a virtue, then Chris Christie would be a saint in heaven.
