Well now everyday for the last seven years we have constantly been bombarded with how bad racism is in this country, and we have watched this country start tearing itself apart again. We saw it with Martin,Brown, black lives matter, and pundits on the net, and on television.

Which brings us to Joseph Goebbels:



“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over”


J. Goebels

'Your racist' which has been shouted from the halls of congress to social media sites, to all parts in between. We have seen outrage with the Fergusons to 'flags' to the police.

Doesn't look like it is going to stop anytime soon. So lets take a look at the history of the instigators of that cry, RACIST!



History reveals that every piece of racist legislation that was ever passed and every racist terrorist attack that was ever inflicted on African Americans, was initiated by the members of the Democratic Party. From the formation of the Democratic Party in 1792 to the Civil Rights movement of 1960's, Congressional records show the Democrat Party passed no specific laws to help Blacks, every law that they introduced into Congress was designed to hurt blacks in 1894 Repeal Act. The chronicles of history shows that during the past 160 years the Democratic Party legislated Jim Crows laws, Black Codes and a multitude of other laws at the state and federal level to deny African Americans their rights as citizens. - See more at: historynewsnetwork.org...


That is such an excellent read please people read ALL the way through it.

That history can't be denied. It can't be explained away. So what's a Democrat to do ? Oh yeah blame the cops, blame the right,blame the founders. Hell do everything they can to just simply IGNORE it.

Seriously people.



Last week, Hillary spoke at a dinner named after two slave owners. The slave owners, Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, not only owned over 760 slaves between them, but they remain the key figures in the founding mythology of the Democratic Party.


www.frontpagemag.com...

With such a rich history of racism of the democratic party, Hell it's very founding by a slave owner, and they have the nerve to preach to the right how they should be ?

I am rather sure your average democrat voter doesn't know it, some do as it was put so nicely here:



Most people are either a Democrat by design, or a Democrat by deception. That is either they were well aware the racist history of the Democrat Party and still chose to be Democrat, or they were deceived into thinking that the Democratic Party is a party that sincerely cared about Black people. - See more at: historynewsnetwork.org...


Those links. That history explain the 'white' guilt modern democrats have today, and why they continually try to push their sins off on to the right.

How about quote the part where it is all Southern Democrats?
Both parties do have plenty of history of racism, but lets not act like it is solely on one side or be deceptive and try and say today's democrats would be part of the ones of that day.

And to think racism is solely a 21'st century thing is ridiculous.
Manifest Density was partly based on being the superior race and having a right to that land.

And Manifest Destiny was a philosophy based in part of Darwinism and as such cannot be called a uniquely American thing. The only American part of it was that Manifest Destiny was the American expression of social Darwinist concepts and beliefs that were also widely embraced and practiced by other parts of the world.

Ya that it EXISTS.
The right is saying it doesn't when there is examples all around us.

Per usual didn't address anything I asked though.

Why didn't you acknowledge that article was about Southern Democrats?

Jackson and others had presented the alternative to slavery as a 1 percent tyranny of big Wall Street banks.

American politics never change, and neither has left or right's ideology.

Clearly missed the point of this thread.

The people shouting loudest about being racist, have for almost over 2 centuries been the biggest racists here.

Which is a gross distortion of what survival of the fittest would be about.
And it was much more then that, divine right to the land was a bigger justification.
They used anything they could to justify the expansion,
Including Polk provoking the Mexicans into war and then saying they started it.


Like this painting that shows an Angelic figure leading the 'peaceful' expansion.

No they have not, the people talking about it today would not align with Southern Democrats, something you keep refusing to address.

What has failed to be addressed here is this rather damning indictment.

During the Senate debates on the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, it was revealed that members of the Democratic Party formed many terrorist organizations like the Ku Klux Klan to murder and intimidate African Americans voters. The Ku Klux Klan Act was a bill introduced by a Republican Congress to stop Klan Activities. Senate debates revealed that the Klan was the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party. History reveals that Democrats lynched, burned, mutilated and murdered thousands of blacks and completely destroyed entire towns and communities occupied by middle class Blacks, including Rosewood, Florida, the Greenwood District in Tulsa Oklahoma, and Wilmington, North Carolina to name a few. - See more at: historynewsnetwork.org...


Sure did read.

And ignored the others that owned slaves. Everything can be a positive when one ignores the negative.

It is like talking to a wall.

Do you know what a Southern democrat or Dixiecrat is?
Answer that question.




Both parties do have plenty of history of racism, but lets not act like it is solely on one side or be deceptive and try and say today's democrats would be part of the ones of that day.

Just want to reiterate this part that I said earlier, just to clarify that I am not try to flip the idea of only one side participating in racism.

You may as well argue with a brick wall.

If OP can't get the historical facts straight, the nebulous politics will certainly be too much to grasp. Especially with blinders on.
