Skip to comments.23 Republicans at Selma despite media claims of zero
Posted on 03/08/2015 5:24:29 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
Yesterday, the media and leftists kept whining about there being zero Republicans at Selma for the anniversary march. As is typical for the media and leftist progressives, there were actually 23 Republicans in attendance yesterday. Even George W. Bush, the devil to the media and the left was at the march, though you wouldnt know it if you saw todays New York Times with George Bush and Laura Bush cropped out of their photo.

Just how many people were killed on “Bloody Sunday”?
Did the media create the whole horror story?
Pardon me if I don’t give a rip about selma.
Not that I give a rip but I’d heard that President George W. Bush and Laura Bush were going to be there.
Who gives a crap
I think that the actual complaint was that no one from the GOP “Leadership” went to the event. You couldn’t claim no Republicans were going because Sen Scott was a co-host of the event, and the attendance of Pres GW Bush had been advertised days before.
It could have been a trap to get house Whip Scalise there after all of that talk about his speaking to a White Power/David Duke group in Louisiana. They would have loved that.

Without Everett Dirksen and the Republican minority in the Senate the Civil Rights Bill of 1965 wouldn’t have been passed.
..... Yet another example of how elections have consequences.
I don’t get it......why were the George and Laura there??????
I had four of my Comments “disappear” when I Posted on the NYT linked Page regarding a Maureen Dowd propaganda piece.
They even failed to Post my Reply when I simply asked if they had a Policy of not approving Comments from those who disagree with what they published.
Pity the article does not list the Republicans present. Does anyone have this list?
My question is when did it become “bloody sunday.” page bono.
If they had used the uncropped version, Obama would have been too small.
Because Bill and Hill couldn't make it. George and Laura were there to represent the family.
-——I dont get it......why were the George and Laura there??????-——
Why would they not be there???
Selma was a watershed moment in the civil rights movement....
People of color demanding to be treated equally by protesting peaceable and were vicious attacked by democrats....
America got to see firsthand the ugly racism of the south....
It was quite shocking to many of them...
Bloody Sunday is Northern Ireland and what about the pathetic outrageous remarks by the fairy boy of homosexual blood lined the streets in San Freako ?
I am quite frankly of hearing about Selma and it seems millions are because the movie was a flop and nearly everyone I know is fed up of hearing about the past and not how much blacks have come forward and only to be held back by their communities and the way some of them act.
Always equate Bloody Sunday with Northern Ireland certainly not Selma. Infact I had never heard of Selma described as this before.
