Does Sharpton Know He Is A Member of the Party of The KKK??? Brainwashed???

What would you call it? History Al, not your strong suit is it?

Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters sets the scene:
As Al Sharpton ridiculed Herman Cain on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” Friday for saying blacks have been brainwashed into voting for Democrats, the reverend ended up proving the Republican presidential candidate’s point.
Seconds after claiming, “What [Cain] does not have the right is to rewrite history by saying that blacks were brainwashed by becoming Democrats,” Sharpton showed his ignorance of the subject by stating, “We went with a Party that stood up for the Civil Rights Act of ’64 and Voting Rights Act of ’65.”
If Sharpton had gone with a party that stood the tallest for the Civil Rights Act of 1964, he might be a Republican like Herman Cain:
The House version of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by only 61 percent of that Chamber’s Democrats versus 80 percent of the Republicans.
More importantly, it was Republicans that ended a Democrat filibuster preventing a vote on this bill in the Senate. 82 percent of Republicans voted for cloture versus 66 percent of Democrats.
In the final Senate vote on the Act, 82 percent of Republicans voted “Aye” versus 69 percent of Democrats.
Quite contrary to what Sharpton and most liberals think, a greater percentage of Republicans than Democrats supported this Civil Rights Act.
Ditto for the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Take it away, Al:
