  1. Excuse my ignorance on the subject, but why did the Democratic Party push for civil rights and kick the Southern Wing of the Party to the curb?

  2. The Northern liberal wing of the Democratic Party rose to power under Al Smith and FDR. In the aftermath of WW2, they started another one of their periodic social crusades against Southerners over “racism.” It was basically a replay of Reconstruction.

  3. Less “Northern [Old Yankee] liberals” than Catholics, blacks, and Jews who took over the Democratic Party.

  4. The Democratic Party was taken over by Meathead in the 1960s. It was around this time that cultural marxism and identity politics replaced FDR’s a-chicken-in-every-pot brand of liberalism within the Democratic Party. Obviously, Wallace Democrats did not feel at home in such a party. The only reason it took the Wallace Dems untill the 1990s to fully defect to the Republicans was because of lingering bitterness over the Republican’s role in the Civil War.

    Anyway, all of this is history. The “liberalism” and “conservatism” discussed in the article were products of the 20th century, and should be seen as such. I’m more interested in what will replace them in our current century.
