Democrats Ku Klux Klan History


Examining Black Loyalty to Democrats

A glimpse at a few notable racist party Democrats. Not surprisingly the KKK’s first targets were Republicans. We peek into the Democrat Party’s racist history, predictably omitted from public education in lieu of Tenured Professors, who have deliberately opted for the doctrinal “social justice” curriculum. Liberals are rewriting history as historical monuments deemed racist are promptly carted away, satiating delicate liberal sensibilities. America’s struggle to “form a more perfect Union,” is just that – Our monuments reflect that past — a past that is sometimes regretful — but they are a part of our history and they can be used as signposts and teaching moments so we do not forget and can move forward. Yet the psychotic derangement sweeping the nation mandates utter compliance with the social justice Marxist philosophy … would or should, a statue or street name honoring the late Muhammad Ali, a man who enthusiastically espoused black separatism be torn down – I think not.

Zo thinks that Democrats are really the party of slavery, Jim Crow, and the K.K.K.

When he was running for president in 2000, Vice President Al Gore told the NAACP that his father, Senator Al Gore Sr., had lost his Senate seat because he voted for the Civil Rights Act. Uplifting story — except it’s false. Gore Sr. voted against the Civil Rights Act. *Note: Al Gore Sr. was also an avid supporter of President Franklin Roosevelt’s (D) New Deal.

Al Gore Jr. Mash up Gore’s reframing of the relevant history is the story of the Democratic party in microcosm. The party’s history is pockmarked with racism and terror. The Democrats were the party of slavery, black codes, Jim Crow, and that miserable terrorist excrescence, the Ku Klux Klan. Republicans were the party of Lincoln, Reconstruction, anti-lynching laws, and the civil rights acts of 1875, 1957, 1960, and 1964. Were all Republicans models of rectitude on racial matters? Hardly. Were they a heck of a lot better than the Democrats? Without question.

The Klan put into action a battle plan to help Democrats win, stating: “Every Democrat must feel honor bound to control the vote of at least one Negro by intimidation…. Democrats must go in as large numbers…and well-armed.” -Kimberly Bloom Jackson An issue of Harper’s Weekly that same year illustrated this mindset with a depiction of two white Democrats standing next to a black man while pointing a gun at him.

Democrats-help-black-man-voteAs recently as 2010, the Senate’s president pro tempore was former Ku Klux Klan Exalted Cyclops Robert Byrd (D., W.Va.). Rather than acknowledge their sorry history, modern Democrats have rewritten it. The Democrats have been sedulously rewriting history for decades. You may recall that when MSNBC was commemorating the 50th anniversary of segregationist George Wallace’s “Stand in the Schoolhouse Door” stunt to prevent the integration of the University of Alabama, the network identified Wallace as “R., Alabama.” (He was an Independent)

Under mounting political pressure Byrd eventually rescinded his support for the Ku
Klux Klan albeit grudgingly. He still defended the Klan in his 2005 memoir, Robert C. Byrd: Child of the Appalachian Coalfields, describing it as “a fraternal assembly” of “upstanding people” who at no time engaged in, or preached violence against, blacks, Jews, or Catholics. Yet, Byrd was welcomed by the Democratic Party. The Democrats have been sedulously rewriting history for decades.

Their preferred version pretends that all the Democratic racists and segregationists left their party and became Republicans starting in the 1960’s. How convenient. If it were true that the South began to turn Republican due to Lyndon Johnson’s passage of the Civil Rights Act, you would expect that the Deep South, the states most associated with racism, would have been the first to move. That’s not what happened. Racism has an ugly past in the Democratic party… read more

Goldwater Girl – Hillary Clinton’s ‘mentor and friend’ Tribute

The Birth Of A Nation – Jim Crow Laws

The film falsified the reality of Reconstruction by presenting blacks as trying to dominate Southern whites and sexually force themselves upon white women.

On the evening of March 21, 1915, President Woodrow Wilson (D) attended a special screening at the White House of THE BIRTH OF A NATION, a film directed by D.W. Griffith and based on THE CLANSMAN, a novel written by Wilson’s good friend Thomas Dixon. The film presented a distorted portrait of the South after the Civil War, glorifying the Ku Klux Klan and denigrating blacks. After seeing the film, an enthusiastic Wilson reportedly remarked: “It is like writing history with lightning, and my only regret is that it is all so terribly true.” African-American audiences openly wept at the film’s malicious portrayal of blacks, while Northern white audiences cheered.

Margaret Sanger

Ironically it would be the female darling of the Democrats who would deal blacks the severest blow. Margaret Sanger’s manipulations were unparalleled. She was a featured guest of the Ku Klux Klan and a huge proponent of the forced sterilization program of the Nazi regime in the 1930’s.

Sanger often voiced her opinions on race and eugenics. Sanger urged, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities.  The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Strom Thurmond (D) – (December 5, 1902 – June 26, 2003)

Strom_Thurmond

Only member of either house of Congress to reach the age of 100 while still in office.

Strom Thurmond, Governor of South Carolina, and a group of Southern delegates walked out of the Democratic Convention when the civil-rights platform passed. The dissidents formed the States’ Rights party, whose members came to known as Dixiecrats. A reporter asked Thurmond why he had bolted from the Democratic party when President Truman (who also dabbled in the Klan) had not done anything substantially different from his predecessor, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Strom Thurmond

Thurmond replied, “Yes — but Truman really means it.” After the convention, Truman ordered the army integrated — a move brought about, in part, by the intense pressure of civil rights leader A. Philip Randolph. Truman’s stance on civil rights won him the black vote in 1948 — and with it, the presidential election … read more

Virtually every liberal, when pressed on the matter, will inevitably claim that the parties “switched,” and most racist Democrats became Republicans. In their minds, this historical ju jitsu maneuver apparently transfers all the past sins of the Democrats (slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow laws, etc.) onto the Republicans and all the past virtues of the Republicans (e.g., ending slavery) onto the Democrats. That’s quite a feat!

 It is true that Barry Goldwater’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 probably attracted some racist Democrats to the Republican Party.

But Goldwater’s opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Act provided liberals an opening to tar the Republican Party as racist, and they have tenaciously repeated that label so often over the years that it is now the conventional wisdom among liberals. But it is really nothing more than an unsubstantiated myth — a convenient political lie. If the Republican Party was any more racist than the Democratic Party even in 1964, why did a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats in both houses of Congress vote for the 1964 Civil Rights Act? The idea that Goldwater’s vote on the 1964 Civil Rights Act trumps a century of history of the Republican Party is ridiculous, to say the least… read more

While political parties consist of flawed human beings, memberships of all parties require vigilance. Democrats have absolutely zero credibility when lecturing others on racism – period.
