What wingnuts have taught me on Twitter recently.

That in the wake of John Derbyshire's firing, it's important to remember that Democrats are the real racists.

That segregationist Democrats like Bull Connor and George Wallace were liberals.

That Barry Goldwater, who ran for president in 1964 opposing Civil Rights -- was the real hero of the Civil Rights Era.

That Lyndon Johnson, who muscled through the most important Civil Rights legislation of the 20th century and authored the Great Society -- was a "racist" because he used the n-word.

And that we really should thank Republicans -- not Democrats -- for the passage of the Civil Rights Act.

These people really need help.
