I’m sure that some, like MSNBC host, Kasie Hunt think that refers to the Republican Party. The stubborn facts and inconvenient truth are that it does not. Inconvenient for them! Kamala Harris launched a vicious attack on the Democratic front-runner, Joe Biden over his working with segregationist. However, she and the Democrats conveniently omit the fact that he was working with fellow Democrats in doing so. That is not an inconsequential fact but one they avoid like the plague and assume, rightly, that their followers won’t know the difference. Low information voters or lazy voters who do not take the time to research true American history and facts buy the spin.
The two Senators Biden is accused of working closely with are James Eastland and Herman Talmadge. They hailed from Mississippi and Georgia and both were devoted segregationists, and both were Democrats. The Democrats were the party of slavery, a fact that is unavoidable in history. The revisionists want to simply make them conservatives, not Democrats and spin the spin so that people forget who the Party of the KKK and Slavery really was. They want to forget the Party of Jim Crow Laws. Hey, they claim, “We have evolved and are the true party of the people.” That would be palatable were it not for certain pertinent facts.
The Democrats did move on from their support of slavery but moved to segregation and Jim Crow laws. They would no longer support the physical ownership of slaves but would keep them, as they voiced, “in their place” through segregation, isolation, and Jim Crow laws. That is only marginally different from slavery and reveals that they embraced emancipation as a law but not in their hearts or minds. That change may have been politically beneficial but societally it was still destructive and repressive.
Even Democrat historians, such as Gary Wills, have acknowledged that the Democratic Party was built “on the slave power’s deep roots.” His research and others reveal that the Democratic Party, from the outset, was deeply rooted in the culture of race. Today, the Democrats have found that playing the “race card” is an effective tool in dividing peoples and garnering support from minorities and activist.
The Thirteenth Amendment was passed without the support of Democrats. That ended slavery and 50 of the 64 Democrats in the House of Representatives opposed the measure. In the Senate, the Republicans were unanimous in support and only 2 Democrats voted for it. Which party is the party of slavery and Jim Crow? Well, facts indicate that it is the Democrats, not the Republicans, historically. But again, that is an inconvenient truth and fact that the Left chooses to ignore, deny, and attempt to spin in their favor.
The Jim Crow Laws advanced by the Democrats created segregation. The Jim Crow Laws did everything from segregating schools to public accommodations and restricted the voting rights of blacks in America. Again, who is the party of slavery and Jim Crow Laws? Not the Republicans but the voting record indicate it was the Democrats. They were attempting to get around the Republican-backed 14th and 15th Amendments. The 14th Amendment gave the ex-slaves due process and the 15th Amendment gave them the right to vote. Wow! What an inconvenient truth that the Left would oppose those Amendments. Yet, 90% of blacks vote Democrat. That is beyond reasonable comprehension.
Today the modus operandi of the Left is to “divide and conquer.” It is “spew hate and fan the flames of distrust.” It has evolved into “identity politics” and someone said, Identity Politics is the son of segregation and the grandson of slavery. What a railing indictment on the Party that has through actions such as those of Lyndon Johnson in the 1964 Civil Rights act, secured block voting by blacks across America. Thankfully there are some that are waking up and leaving the Democratic Plantation. Sorry for that comparison but it is accurate.
Senator Kamala Harris insists that “identity politics” is the tool or weapon needed to “diminish issues of race, gender, and sexual orientation.” No, Senator, it is doing exactly the opposite and you know it or should. It is creating a greater divide not providing a healing balm. I find Senator Harris’ view shockingly akin to that of George Wallace the Democratic Governor of Alabama. He believed that it was wrong to diminish the race issue and that Americans should be judged by the color of their skin.
That is diametrically opposite of the expressed view of the 1960s civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He famously said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” I want that too for all Americans! I suggest that Kamala Harris’ view is nothing short of re-segregation and dangerous for America. She is pushing the views of Barack Obama to the limit and moving us to the brink of a terrible civil upheaval that will mean blood in the streets. No Freedom loving American should want that or be willing to allow that view to advance.
In life, sometimes the more things change the more they stay the same and the Democratic Party of today, the Liberal Leftist Socialist are advancing agendas that virtually enslave people. The entitlement trap is a form of slavery. Those hooked to the sugar-tit of entitlement dare not bit the hand that feeds them, or they will endanger their fix and source of livelihood. A livelihood that they receive for sitting on their behinds, having babies out of wedlock and not working. No, I am not laying all that at the door of the blacks for there are whites, Hispanics, and other ethnicities learning how to scam the system and receive the monthly dole from the government as the Democrats buy more and more votes.
I want America back! I want the American principles and precepts of our Founding and want to return to moral sanity. I want the propitious smiles of heaven on this nation as before. I want the America that is the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave where everyone has the inalienable right for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” If you want that, then join me and the millions like me in defeating the liberal left in November 2020.
God bless you and God bless America!
