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.

The Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, perpetrated lynchings, and fought against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s.

In contrast, the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an anti-slavery party. Its mission was to stop the spread of slavery into the new western territories with the aim of abolishing it entirely. This effort, however, was dealt a major blow by the Supreme Court. In the 1857 case Dred Scott v. Sandford, the court ruled that slaves aren’t citizens; they’re property. The seven justices who voted in favor of slavery? All Democrats. The two justices who dissented? Both Republicans.

The slavery question was, of course, ultimately resolved by a bloody civil war. The commander-in-chief during that war was the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln – the man who freed the slaves.

Six days after the Confederate army surrendered, John Wilkes Booth, a Democrat, assassinated President Lincoln. Lincoln’s vice president, a Democrat named Andrew Johnson, assumed the presidency. But Johnson adamantly opposed Lincoln’s plan to integrate the newly freed slaves into the South’s economic and social order.

Johnson and the Democratic Party were unified in their opposition to the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery; the 14th Amendment, which gave blacks citizenship; and the 15th Amendment, which gave blacks the vote. All three passed only because of universal Republican support.

During the era of Reconstruction, federal troops stationed in the south helped secure rights for the newly freed slaves. Hundreds of black men were elected to southern state legislatures as Republicans, and 22 black Republicans served in the US Congress by 1900. The Democrats did not elect a black man to Congress until 1935.


FULL PAPER: assets.ctfassets.net... rty-transcript.pdf

This refutes one of the most egregious and oft-peddled democrat lies out there: the effort to take their historical stain of slavery/segregation and hand that label to Republicans. The uneducated & others unfamiliar with history probably wouldn't know this, but it is irrefutable historical fact.

Sad thing is, it applies to modern day democrats away. New day, different chains, same old racism/slavery.

Taco bell made darn good steak fajitas in the 1980's, now they suck.

Things change, yes even within political parties.

It's been over 150 years, man. Name's the same, views have changed. Republicans back then were the liberals, democrats conservative. If any conservative, right-wing republican from today were to go back in time, they would 100% without a doubt support the Democrats of yesteryear.

It was liberals who supported integration of southern colleges and conservatives that opposed it.
It was liberals who sided with black people in integrating food establishments. It was liberals who fought to do away with segreagated restrooms. Conservatives opposed.

Just another example of a party telling a lie often enough and big enough people will believe. Notice how the current crop of democrats are doing everything to sabotage the economy of their states and even America.

If we are going to cite history, best we don''t get it upside down.

If Republicans hadn't freed the slaves, Black Americans wouldn't have been able to contribute to society in significant ways.

The article is crap.

All it does is try to shift the blame from one party to another, without addressing that the Democrats have, with the civil rights movement, made their next plantation of voters.

Care to link the last Republican leader that was a member of the KKK?

I can give you one in the Democrat leadership... Senator Byrd, who died in 2010.

Is 2010 ancient history for you?

President Carter was a KKK member.

That ancient history as well to you?

And who is the party that champions identity politics, who is VERY concerned about your skin color or your sexuality?

THAT would be our current Democratic party.

A party that is currently going to base their VP pick on the color of her skin.

I understand why you are butthurt about being a member of a party ran by rich white old people who want to tell you that rich white old people are the problem.

I suggest you attempt to think rationally and understand that you are butthurt because you belong to a party that lies to you to stay in power.

Then possibly reconsider your options this November.

It was Joe Biden who fought for segregated schools and bussing.

Joe Biden who was a big fan of KKK member Senator Byrd.

Who you are going to vote for this time.

Correct me if i"m wrong here. Busing was to further integration. To transport black students from areas of black residency to schools in white areas. Like it or not, that is what the busing was for. Not to further segregation.

So as this is the case, how is it that Biden fought for segregated schools AND busing at the same time?

I guess that would depend if you believed Biden in the 1970's when he was opposed to it as opposed the Biden in 2020 when he said he never meant it that way.

As for this...

I'm assuming that you can't understand that if you fight to keep black children from being taken to a white school, then you are probably fighting to keep the schools segregated....

Too much for you to comprehend there?

/facepalm

yea might want to follow your own advice before spewing more BS.

wallace was a DEMOCRAT that actively tried to stop integration of the schools that resulted in the 101 airborne being called.

it was the DEMOCRATS (lead by the SOUTHERN DEMOCRATS who were members of the KKK as well) who fought and voted against the civil rights legislation (btw clearly available by a google search)

it is the DEMOCRATS TO THIS DAY revere and call a greats statesman Sen Byrd.
a man who was A LEADER OF THE KKK, who never renounced (while in senate) them, was AGAINST the civil rights legislation

he lead a FILLIBUSTER to try to stop the legislation.

btw here is the FACT AND DIRECT QUOTE from the senate records

June 10, 1964


At 9:51 on the morning of June 10, 1964, Senator Robert C. Byrd completed an address that he had begun 14 hours and 13 minutes earlier.


THE ONLY report of a recant / denouncing of his KKK roots was a reported (but not backed up by hard FACTS) death bed statement. even if true too little too late.


but which party TRIED LIKE HELL to get a KKK member off the ticket and denounced him ?
the REPUBLICANS and the person was mr david duke.


I hate to break it to you but you can post , stamp your feet and tell the same LIES until the end of days.

it (unlike your propaganda people claim ) will not become the truth no matter how many times you tell it

HOWEVER every time you do it does make you look like a willingly (especially given the ease of information retrieval the internet provides) ignorant fool

I will try one more time to help you get this into your skull. It's time for you to listen so I will repeat myself for your benefit.

You said, Biden supported segregated schools.

Did you or did you not?

Here, I will answer that one for you.
Here is your quote


It was Joe Biden who fought for segregated schools and bussing.

OK, recognize that? Have we got that straight now?

You also said that he supported busing.

Did you or did you not?

Here again is your quote


It was Joe Biden who fought for segregated schools and bussing.


See there? You point blank said he supported segregated schools and also said he supported busing..You even said both in the very same sentence.

OK. Now that we have your comment sorted out lets move on.

Why was there busing?

Busing was to integrate schools by moving students from predominately black neighborhoods to schools in predominately white neighborhoods. Why? to integrate the schools.

So, let me ask you one more time here. How did Biden support both at the same time.

nice attempt at the tired last ditch old "they are just as bad" card.

also just as transparent as well.

yes both parties have racist among them

funny that democrats dont call them out . Especially when they are revered like al sharpton, louis Farrakhan, and sen (leader of the KKK) byrd.

funny that they embrace the black panthers and BLM

but they call out the republicans not for the true sponsored racist but because at some rally SOME MEMBERS of (ex) the KKK happen to show up?

ignoring the FACT they they tried everything legal and denouced when David KKK member Duke ran as a republican.

or that UNDER TRUMP A REPUBLICAN and with republican majority that the african american unemployment rate dropped LOWER THAN IT HAS BEEN IN DECADE OR MORE in three years than the HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT RATE under DEMOCRAT OBAMA 8 years

but hey they are both the same right?

smh

Can you point out what I said that you consider ''spewing BS'' ? You went on quite a harangue there without addressing the points I was adding to the thread. I"m not disputing those points you made , as many of them are things I did not like about that party. What I was disputing was the notion that the demographics of 1860 are the same demographics of party affiliation today.

that democrats are for civil rights/african americans and the repulicans are the democratic racists (like the past) now for one. you did read your comments to this point right?

You went on quite a harangue there without addressing the points I was adding to the thread.

so pointing out how democrats still honor an unreformed KKK leader that tried to block the 1962 civil rights legislation (with fillibuster to which i provided proof) and showed how under a REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT that african american unemployment has DROPPED TO A LEVEL not seen in ten years or more. among other FACTS... Man your mental gymnastics at twisting the definition of "addressin the points" would make the ministry of truth in 1984 novel proud.


I"m not disputing those points you made , as many of them are things I did not like about that party.

but yet you gloss over them and attempt to project them onto the republicans... nice hypocricy


What I was disputing was the notion that the demographics of 1860 are the same demographics of party affiliation today.

REALLY? Im sorry but sen byrd and the DEMOCRATS that fought for segregation, against the civil rights act , ect were from the 1960s.. over a hundred years later... along with the support IN 2000 of such racists as al sharpton, jessie jackson, BLM and others I could mention. yet the REPUBLICANS (with some sad rare exceptions) DO NOT support racist groups , high members (again does DEMOCRAT BYRD RING A BELL) , and even when one ran under the republican ticket named DAVID DUKE they worked legally and politically to stop him..






sorry but your words are there for all to see and (as i have done) can torpedo WITH FACTS easily checked and cross checked for accuracy thanks to the internet.


you failed in deflection, facts and cause.

but yet you keep saying and deflecting the same way

too bad FACTS dont support you.. no matter how hard you try to ignore them. Much less address them


btw you do know the last democratic presidential candidate named hillory still heaped praise at the DNC convention on sen byrd to thunderous applause right? an UNREPENTANT KKK LEADER and filibuster AGAINST the 1962 civil rights act .

who again by MAJORITY got it passed?
