Archie Bunker was directly based on Alf Garnett, the lead character of the BBC series Till Death Us Do Part and from whence Norman Lear derived the entire AITF series.
Warren Mitchell (né Meisel), who played Alf Garnett, was also far more liberal than the character he played.

Carol O’Connor was a screaming Lib as well.
Thanks for the reminder about the character of Archie Bunker being based on the one of the BBC series Till Death Us Do Part.
