Full Title: Reminder: Democrats ran the KKK, started the Civil War, celebrated slavery and fought against the Civil Rights Act
(NationalSentinel) For all of its existence, the American Democrat Party has stood for distinctly anti-American principles and values, but thanks to a fully co-opted “mainstream media” that serves as the party’s propaganda division, far too many citizens don’t know that.
For instance, they don’t know that the Democrat Party, only recently, “embraced” minorities, seemed to embrace true “equality,” and began vocalizing support for civil rights – all positions the party vehemently and consciously opposed for more than 200 years.
As noted by Prof. Carol Swain, who teaches political science at Vanderbilt University, the Democrat Party defended slavery, actually started the Civil War, founded the Ku Klux Klan, and battled against every single major civil rights act in our country’s history.
In a video she narrated for PragerU Swain, who is black, begins:
When you think about racial equality and civil rights, which political party comes to mind – the Republicans or the Democrats? Most people would probably say the Democrats. But this answer is incorrect. Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has fought against every major civil rights initiative and has a long history of discrimination
Swain’s report is particularly relevant in today’s political environment as the far Left, which is taking over the Democrat Party, seeks to not only hide the party’s history but brand the GOP as the party of racists, bigots, homophobes, and authoritarians – led by POTUS Donald Trump, whose own very public history is one of racial equality and harmony, not of bigotry and hate.
And they had one of the biggest scandals in American history with the “Tweed Gang” in New York City between 1853 and 1871 and an even bigger one with the Clintons now.
The Dems are STILL into SLAVERY!! They have ENSLAVED BLACKS, RUINED their Lives and Families, taken out the man in the house, and any Black who dares to leave the Democrat Party is called an UNCLE TOM!
Confederate Dixie Ping
And Republicans are still socialist marxist
And Communist too!!!
Are you drunk?
Often, I’ve pointed these facts out to a liberal; the response is that the two parties “switched” philosophies at some vague point in time, and the Democrats are actually the party that is not racist, the Repugnant Republicans took over as the racists.
Bizarre people with bizarre views, can’t cite details or proof of amazing “switch”.
Oh yes they can!
It’ll take hours and your eyes will glaze over before they get done. But they will try. And as long as the liberals can convince themselves that the party they support is not, and was never racist, then no logic or reason will do.
Yes, I’ve heard that bizarre “switch” story. The only justification seems to be that it’s ‘cause conservatives are inherently evil and Democrats are all that is good in life. Such child like refusal to accept responsibility.
Now youve done it! The Southrons of Free Republic will rise up in defense of old Dixie to explain how it was actually the Proto Facist Abe Lincoln and the Jewish bankers of NYC who started the Civil War!
The “facts” according to Democrats that I have mentioned this to, seem to be that sometime in the 60’s the racist’s left the Democrat party and turned to the Republican party, cause everyone knew that the GOP was the party of racism. Or something.
inconvenient truth is that as late as 2003 Alabama had a Democrat as Governor. He was probably just a holdover from the old racist Democrats though? Of course he’s in jail. Which according to Democrats was a Republican plot against him.
And then there was Klanbake...
And a good description here, if you ignore the proposed parallels to the 2016 Republican convention possibilities.
I invoked that exact response recently by someone who usually comments on news stories with this line...”I’m not a liberal....but”
Don’t forget they were also behind Jim Crow and segregation in the South.
Even though my father and grandfather had been Eisenhower and Nixon60 and Goldwater people myself and most of my extended family lived this exodus of former Dixiecrats or social conservatives to the GOP starting with Goldwater in 1964 when he carried the Cotton states and Arizona only
By the end of Carter in 1980 it was mostly a fait accompli
Even though some southern support for a Democrat surfaced in 1992 for Slick
It took longer for the statehouses to go GOPe but I’m pretty sure all had by the end of Obama second term
Whites in the south are more social conservative about everything and especially race because of the large numbers of blacks they have always had to contend with which is something lecturing Yankees never had to much and when they did I cant say impressed with how it turned out
Go up north even to small cities and its even more segregated than here...Im thinking Grand Rapids a city I know pretty well as just one examples
The Dixiecrats died off and the Dems went left and now far left left and so southern whites migrated to the GOPe moving it further right than the Nixon Rockefeller GOPe had been
Without the South there would have been no Magnus possible because the northern GOPe would have still had the power
I have seen nutz here claim the south went GOPe because Yankees moved south. And conservatized Dixie.
Hilarious...anyone who lives here knows when Yankees move south it gets more liberal and purple as they say
Even where I live surrounded by mostly decent Michiganders in middle Tennessee.....they are still more liberal than native southerners are...not like Massachusetts thankfully
This notion Democrats 1860 and Democrats 2019 are interchangeable is just stupid posturing
Way different issues and goals for each and political pressures etc
Its just silly no matter how much NRO sound and fury
Mississippi and Alabama in national elections ...whites vote 88-92% GOPe
Nobody else comes close not even vaunted Oklahoma
Another at least 75% southern state btw
Berate slavery all you must if it makes you feel good but thats where it should stop
I would caution Freepers over GOP worship
We are being saved as we speak by one man....not a party
I have never been impressed with the Republicans much
Often they contrast favorably to democrats especially since FDR on but they are not our true friends
Todays GOPe is indistinguishable from a mid 70s moderate midwestern Democrat
Trump's speaking the truth... the real conversation has started.
Yes, democrats destroyed the black community... and democrats were the party of the KKK and White Citizens Councils and Bull Conner and George Wallace... and when Biden says he worked with segregationists he was TALKING ABOUT WORKING WITH FELLOW DEMOCRATS.
Should be: "Such childISH refusal to accept responsibility." Child-like is a good thing.
It is far worse that that. It is like spitting on Thomas Jefferson; misrepresenting the libertarian views of Calhoun; completely ignoring who were the strict constructionists and who the advocates of an increased role for bureaucracy in America.
In short, a shameless deception that will not stand critical examination. If anyone doubts how this foolishness will be used in academia, to undermine family teachings, let this Oberlin graduate, who fought the big government toadies in the intellectual trenches, before he was old enough to vote, assure one and all. Faculty Leftists have always sought out ideological inconsistencies to separate college students from their family values.
She’s always made so much sense. Perhaps put her in Betsy DeVos’ position.
