The Confederate Insurgency Has Always Cried "Tyranny"

Ed Kilgore pulled a fascinating quote from George Wallace after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Never before in the history of this nation have so many human and property rights been destroyed by a single enactment of the Congress. It is an act of tyranny. It is the assassin’s knife stuck in the back of liberty.

With this assassin’s knife and a blackjack in the hand of the Federal force-cult, the left-wing liberals will try to force us back into bondage. Bondage to a tyranny more brutal than that imposed by the British monarchy which claimed power to rule over the lives of our forefathers under sanction of the Divine Right of kings….

It threatens our freedom of speech, of assembly, or association, and makes the exercise of these Freedoms a federal crime under certain conditions.

It affects our political rights, our right to trial by jury, our right to the full use and enjoyment of our private property, the freedom from search and seizure of our private property and possessions, the freedom from harassment by Federal police and, in short, all the rights of individuals inherent in a society of free men…
In other words, for the Confederate insurgency of the 1960's, legally granting civil rights to African Americans was a form of tyranny perpetrated on white people.

If that sounds familiar, it's because it is the exact same cry of our current day Confederate insurgency.
"What we have now is a president who has accelerated the progressive movement that started back with Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson … to such an extent that I now can tell you that we're living under a government of tyranny."

Tom DeLay
For more examples from other conservatives, simply google "Obama tyranny." Its a theme these days.
