Is the Democratic Party Really the Political Home of Black Americans?

Posted by

To start, you should know that I am not a Republican. I am an Independent.

Do you remember Mr. Biden saying: “If you don’t vote for me, you’re not Black.” ?

What he meant to say is that Black Americans should vote for him and the Socialist Democratic Party because he and his party stand and have always stood for the just cause of Black Americans as their good friends and defenders. Does history bear that out?

Liberals are telling us that we must never get over slavery and that white people (even if they never had slaves) should pay restitution to Black people (even if they never were slaves). Because slavery was a historic fact, we must never get over it and all actions that were taken to abolish slavery (including the 360,222 Union soldiers who died in the Civil War fighting against slavery) are worthless, meaningless, and only of symbolic value, if that.

Democrats tell us that history matters and that knowledge of what happened in our historical past should impact our present thinking and actions. But history tells us that the very Democrats who are today holding themselves out as the great defenders of Black Americans were historically the people who fought against emancipation and equal rights for Black Americans every step of the way.

Let us do a little excursion into American political history and find out if Democrats have really been the defenders of Black Americans as they claim they were. In doing so, I am partly using Louisiana State Senator Elbert Lee Guillory’s “Little Black Book of Liberal Lies” as a source. Senator Guillory is a Black American and he left the Democratic Party to become a Republican in 2013, for which switch he was called “Oreo”, Uncle Tom”, and “Race Traitor” by his former fellow Democrats. Senator Guillory writes in his introduction:

In 2013, I made national headlines when I abandoned the government plantation and party of disappointment. Otherwise known as the Democratic Party. My reason? Democrats have hijacked and enslaved Black America for their own power while destroying the Black community. Now I’m fighting to break those chains once and for all. … Hillary Clinton and ALL liberals don’t care about me, you, the Black community, or freedom. They only care about one thing: Control. … I pray you’ll join me today by rejecting your modern-day slave masters and abandon the Democratic plantation and party of disappointment while turning to the true party of freedom. The party of Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Republican Party.”

Martin Luther King Jr. – really? Well, his niece Alveda King, has argued that her uncle was originally a Republican, like his father Martin Luther King, Sr., who also was a Republican and a Baptist Minister. Later Junior became a Democrat under political pressure.

The Democratic Party truly started back in 1830 with the election of Andrew Jackson. In 1860 the Democrats split over the issue of slavery. The so-called “Fire Eaters” urged secession and their pro-slavery attitudes significantly promoted the outbreak of the Civil War. Their leaders were Edmund RuffinRobert RhettLouis T. Wigfall, and William Lowndes Yancey Democrats all of them. At the Democratic National Convention held in Charleston, South Carolina, in April 1860, 50 Southern Democrats walked out over a platform dispute, led by the extreme pro-slavery William Lowndes Yancey and the Alabama delegation. Following them were the entire delegations of Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Texas, three of the four delegates from Arkansas, and one of the three delegates from Delaware, all of them pro-slavery Democrats. After some back and forth maneuvering, this led to the Crittenden Compromise and Crittenden Resolution, both aimed at changing the Constitution to permanently legitimize slavery.

After the Civil War, Democrats benefited from understandable white Southerners’ resentment of harsh Reconstruction measures and consequent hostility to the Republican Party. After the Redeemers ended Reconstruction in the 1870s and following the often extremely violent disenfranchisement of African Americans led by such white supremacist Democratic politicians as Benjamin Tillman of South Carolina in the 1880s and 1890s, the South, voting Democratic, became known as the “Solid South.”

The Reconstruction aera also gave rise to the Ku Klux Klan. Confederate Cavalry General Nathan Bedford Forrest was one of the founders of the Klan in 1866 and became its first Grand Wizard. Forrest was a Democrat.

Democrats supported the KKK, which lynched an estimated 3,446 Black Republicans and 1,297 white Republicans between 1882 and 1968.

When Democrats waged a campaign of violence to take control of Mississippi in 1875, President Grant refused to send federal troops, marking the end of federal support for Reconstruction-era state governments in the South. By 1876, only Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina were still in Republican hands. In the contested presidential election that year, Republican candidate Rutherford B. Hayes reached a compromise with Democrats in Congress: In exchange for certification of his election, he acknowledged Democratic control of the entire South.

It was the Southern Democrats who instituted the so-called Jim Crow Laws, designed to maintain segregation and to prevent the emancipation of Black Americans. These laws later served as models for the NAZI Nuremberg Race Laws (Nürnberger Rassengesetze).

Southern Democrats instituted “separate but equal”. George Wallace and the Southern Democrats acted upon their motto of “Segregation Forever”. Orval Faubus and the Democratic Party used the Arkansas National Guard to enforce segregation until the Republican President Eisenhower sent in the 101st Airborne to integrate schools. Democrats kept KKK Grand Kleagle Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia in the Party. It was Democrats who called Colin Powell “a house nigger” and Condoleezza Rice “Aunt Jemima”.

Democratic President Woodrow Wilson, the father of modern-day progressivism, was a model racist.

Immediately after taking office in 1913, Wilson fired most Blacks who worked in the Federal government and re-segregated the Treasury Department, the Mail Service, and the Navy. He said:

Segregation is not humiliating but a benefit and distinctly to the advantage of the colored people themselves.”

After viewing the KKK eulogy movie “Birth of a Nation” at the White House in 1915, he said:

The white men were roused by a mere instinct of self-preservation – until at last there had sprung into existence a great Ku Klux Klan, a veritable empire of the South, to protect the Southern country.”

Democratic President Harry Truman also was an unabashed racist. He said:

I think one man is just as good as another so long as he’s not a nigger or a Chinaman. … Uncle Will says that the Lord made a White man from dust, a nigger from mud, then he threw up what was left, and it came down a Chinaman. … He does hate Chinese and Japs. So do I. It is race prejudice, I guess. But I am strongly of the opinion Negroes ought to be in Africa, Yellow men in Asia and White men in Europe and America.”  

Democratic President Lyndon Johnson created the so-called “Great Society”, designed as a government dole-out system, mainly to make Black Americans dependent on welfare-state subsidies. He said:

I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”

Democratic President Bill Clinton said about Barack Obama:

A few years ago, he would have been getting us coffee.”  

Democratic Senator Harry Reid said about Barack Obama:

“…a ‘light-skinned’ African American with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”

VP Biden said about Barack Obama:

You got the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

And here is an early victim of the internalization of the reverse Critical Race Theory, Jessie Jackson, who said in 1996:

There is nothing more painful to me … than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

Not to forget Madam Hillary, who remarked in the same year:

They [Black youths] are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators,’… No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.”

Democratic Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia and KKK member made statements like this:

Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the Blackest specimen from the wild.”

When KKK Senator Byrd died, Joe Biden gave his eulogy, in which he made remarks like these:

He was fiercely devoted, as you’ve all heard, to his principles.  … Well, if there was ever a senator who was the embodiment of his state, if there was ever a senator who, in fact, reflected his state, it was Robert C. Byrd. … And Robert C. Byrd was the fierce — most fierce defender of not only the state, but the way of life — I think the most fierce defender that probably this state has ever known in its history.”

Seems he genuinely admired the KKK man.

WVA Democratic Senator Byrd in KKK garb and Hillary Clinton kissing him.

This brings us to Margaret Sanger, birth control activist and racist. Sanger was one of the early protagonists of the Eugenics movement. She was much admired by Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler. Eugenics wanted to improve the human species. Margaret Sanger wrote:

“Colored people are like human weeds and need to be exterminated.”

Hillary Clinton accepted the “Margaret Sanger Award” from Planned Parenthood, the offspring of the Eugenics Movement, saying in her acceptance speech:

I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision …”

All very bad? Wait! It gets worse!

Democrats supported the horrible Dred Scott Supreme Court decision that ruled that a “negro whose ancestors were imported into the US and sold as slaves”, whether enslaved or free, could not be an American citizen. The decision was adopted in a 7:2 vote. ALL SEVEN DEMOCRAT JUDGES VOTED IN FAVOR. The Republican and Whig judge both dissenting.

Republicans in Congress authored the 13th, 14th, and 15th, Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

The 13th Amendment banned slavery. It was unanimously backed by Congressional Republicans, while 63% OF DEMOCRAT SENATORS AND 78% OF DEMOCRAT HOUSE MEMBERS VOTED AGAINST IT.

The 14th Amendment guaranteed Due Process. 94% of Republican Senators and 96% of Republican House members voted in favor of the 14th Amendment, guaranteeing due process of law to Blacks and all Americans. ALL CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS VOTED AGAINST IT.

The 15th Amendment guaranteed Black Americans the right to vote. Almost all Congressional Republicans voted in favor. ALL DEMOCRATS VOTED NO.

Republican President Eisenhower championed the 1957 Civil Rights Act. Republicans unanimously supported it. DEMOCRATS FILIBUSTERED IT IN THE SENATE.

The Democratic Party has created the illusion that their agenda and policies are what’s best for Black people. In fact, the heart of liberalism is the belief that only an all-powerful central government can provide social justice for all Americans. But Democrats are only “charitable” with other people’s money. And that’s exactly how they control and enslave Black Americans. Says Senator Guillory:

Slavery still exists through government-controlled programs like welfare, food stamps, etc. You know what I think about that? I think that the idea that Blacks or anyone for that matter need government to get ahead in life is despicable.”

The basic idea in equal employment regulations, affirmative action, and similar programs is always that the bar needs to be lowered so Black people can also qualify. Does this not somehow imply the notion that Black people are not as capable as white people or Asians? Aside from the condescending assault this constitutes on the self-esteem of Black Americans, how would you feel about depending on – say – a Black dentist, heart surgeon, ophthalmologist, or airplane electronics specialist knowing he or she passed the exam only because of less stringent requirements? Equal employment opportunity programs like those promoted by liberal Democrats say to Black Americans “You can’t succeed if you must compete under equal conditions with white and/or Asian people.” This is at best an insult, at worst blatant racism.

Black Americans voted nearly 90% Democrat, yet their communities remain poor, the big cities they control are in shambles, chaos rules in the states they govern, and young Black men, if they are not in prison, have a bigger chance to be shot dead by other young Black men than to be shot by police.

Have Democrats ever truly been the friends and supporters of Black Americans or were they in fact historically in favor of their enslavement? And are their present policies aimed at liberating Black Americans or at driving them back into the Government Plantation? Has liberalism liberated or destroyed Black America? If history matters, what must we conclude from the history of the Democratic Party?

You decide.

BTW – if you try to find some of these facts on the Internet you may fail, because government and Big Tech censorship cancelled many of them.
