Dixie's Dirty Secret : How the Government, the Media and the Mob Reshaped the Modern Republican Party Into the Image of the Old Confederacy
by James L. Dickerson




Overview -

When Dixie's Dirty Secret was first published in 1998, it was the first book to ever expose the super-secret Mississippi Sovereignty Commission and the involvement of the government, the right-wing news media, and organized crime in combating the civil rights movement. This newly published edition, with nearly 20 years of new information, is a revised, greatly expanded analysis of that era that demonstrates how white resistance to racial integration in the South transformed the Republican Party into a right-wing reflection of Old Confederacy values.

In the United States, the Republican Party's "Southern Strategy" is now in full bloom, a reincarnation of Old Confederacy values that are based on states' rights, foreign isolation and the demonization of blacks. Dixie's Dirty Secret traces the moral and political disintegration of the Republican Party, beginning with a 1955 secret gathering in Memphis, Tennessee, and continuing to the present day transformation of the Republican Party into one that has adopted white identity as its major platform, in the process losing the respect of both the majority of Americans and the international community.

Inspired by Mississippi's refusal to ratify the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery until 1995, GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump opened campaign headquarters in Mississippi to learn how the state has "handled" its blacks. Was the idea to take the Mississippi Plan nationwide? In this book, learn how the state's white leadership, has blocked blacks from being elected to statewide offices for 138 years, how they have used the winner-take-all provision of the Electoral College to nullify black votes for president, and how through legal and social pressures they have created reservations for blacks similar to the ones created in another century for Native Americans. Mississippi has more black elected officials than any other state, but none of them are empowered to govern beyond their reservations.

Dixie's Dirty Secret exposes the longest running political gambit in American history and paints a frightful picture of the future of the United States if the current trend in politics continues. How did the populist Democratic Party lose its blue collar and Southern base? How did the elitist, stiff-upper-lip Republican Party become a vehicle for racism and right-wing political anarchy?
