When I walked away from the Democratic Party, I thought back over the stories I'd been fed. Democrats fought for labor; for the disenfranchised; for blacks; for women. Republicans were for the wealthy; for corporations. I actually bought all of that at first. Then, I began researching the history of the Democratic Party.
It seems that most Southerners were Republican. That is until Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. I'm surprised the stampede over to the Democratic Party didn't tip the country over. The same thing happened when LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act in 1964, Not because he was all for their civil rights. He was about as prejudiced as they came. Again, the hoard of Southern Democrats stampeded right back to the Republican Party, as Johnson knew they would. He was heard to say, "I'll have those n's voting Democrat for the next two hundred years. But I have just lost the South."
Further research told me that many members of Congress were either members of the Ku Klux Klan or closely related to members. Was it Al Gore's father or grandfather who was a Grand Wizard of the KKK in Tennessee? The Klan was actually formed in Eastern Tennessee. Then, there was Senator Byrd and Strom Thurman. Probably a lot more, rampant and unapologetic racists.
From the days of Lincoln, whenever a bill favoring blacks was legislated, not one Democrat voted for it. The Southern Democrats made sure that uneducated blacks couldn't vote. Of course, uneducated whites got a free pass. This was in the days of Jim Crow laws. By the turn of the century, the Klan had died out somewhat until Democratic President, Woodrow Wilson played a movie at the White House called, "Birth of a Nation" Highly racist. It actually revived the Klan and increased lynchings once more all over the country. But especially in the South, still, butt hurt from losing the Civil War.
My question is, how in the world did the Democratic Party ever manage to convince blacks that they were for them? I watched TV in the sixties as the Southern Democrats, mostly, went after blacks with billy clubs, high-powered fire hoses, and vicious dogs. Bull Durham became the poster child for hate and intolerance. Yet, even today, the Democratic Party advertises itself as tolerant, WOKE, being behind Antifa and Black Lives Matter groups.
If black lives matter so much, why are most Planned Parenthood clinics located in low-income black neighborhoods? Why are more babies in DC aborted than almost anywhere else in America? DC is a Democratic stronghold. Why did Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood refer to blacks as "the weeds of humanity"? She reminded a friend she was writing to "to be careful not to let it out that we intend to eliminate the Negro race."
Why did Melinda Gates try to persuade blacks to line up for the jab first, "because they have always been in the back of the line." Are these people even aware of the Tuskeegee experiments? People need to look that up for themselves rather than just to take my word for it. No wonder black people are reluctant to get the jab. Good! They are smarter than some of their white brothers and sisters.
But, why do so many blacks cling to the Democratic Party like it was a life raft? A Party that has displayed nothing but contempt for them. I don't get it. They are just being used. Has anyone else noticed how few blacks are really in Antifa or Black Lives Matter?
What has happened to the youth of this country? Is it just the fault of the educational system? My goddaughter, half black, like Obama, was so hurt growing up when members of her father's family and the black community didn't accept her 'because she wasn't black enough.' I saw her recently and if she hadn't said "Hi." I wouldn't have known it was her. She must have been spending a lot of time in the sun and/or in tanning beds. She was several shades darker. Her natural skin color used to be a beautiful coffee and cream color. WTF? Sorry, but that is all I can say. It makes no sense to me.
I know many blacks left the Party when Trump was president. But the Dems still maintain a very large number. And today, every time you turn on the news, all you hear is more racist propaganda. I don't doubt there are still some whites who hate blacks just because of their skin color. And blacks who hate whites for the same reason. But, I believe those are a minority. I actually see very little prejudice in either direction. Yet, the loony left wants to use that as a talking point to stir up even more hatred and distrust.
Where are all of these crazy ideas coming from? Reparation for being enslaved? How many generations ago was that? I've never owned slaves. I don't know any blacks who have been slaves. For the Democrat's information, the first 100 slaves brought to this hemisphere, BEFORE the first blacks were brought here were 100 white Irish children. There were somewhere in the neighborhood of 50,000 altogether. Like the loony left, the British considered the Irish to be vermin to be exterminated. Man's inhumanity to man knows no color distinction. Any victor of war for millennia have enslaved the vanquished. As well as the fact that it was black Africans who captured their black enemies and sold them to the Arab slavers, who in turn sold them to the highest bidder, black and white, Sorry, but it's true.
This needs to stop. People should have a right to live their lives in peace and harmony with everyone else. But the socialists/communists want to use anything they can to destroy this country. They are certainly not above lying to make that happen. We have to stop them in their tracks. Don't fall for their propaganda. Treat others the way you would like to be treated. We are better than the crap you see on the news every night. Research the things you discover and share that with others. A fire needs fuel to continue to burn. Let's take that oxygen away from the Elite. Happy Fourth!
