Conservatives opposed most scientific advances and most social advances, such as equal rights for minorities.

Such B.S.

Abraham Lincoln was a Republican and he, along with his enlightened Republican countrymen, by hook or crook, emancipated 4 million slaves.

Before the Civil Rights Act of 1957 was passed Congress removed a provision that would have empowered the Justice Department to enforce the Brown v. Board of Education decision. A. Philip Randolph and other civil rights leaders continued to press the major political parties and presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower (Republican) and John F. Kennedy (Democrat) to enact such legislation and to outlaw segregation. The civil rights legislation that Kennedy introduced to Congress on 19 June 1963 addressed these issues, and King advocated for its passage.

The very idea that libruls are the party of social advancement is cringeworthy. They're the party of social destruction.
