Did you know the Democrats ran the KKK, started the Civil War, celebrated slavery and fought against the Civil Rights Act?

 

Natural News) For all of its existence, the American Democrat Party has stood for distinctly anti-American principles and values, but thanks to a fully co-opted “mainstream media” that serves as the party’s propaganda division, far too many citizens don’t know that.

For instance, they don’t know that the Democrat Party, only recently, “embraced” minorities, seemed to embrace true “equality,” and began vocalizing support for civil rights – all positions the party vehemently and consciously opposed for more than 200 years.

As noted by Prof. Carol Swain, who teaches political science at Vanderbilt University, the Democrat Party defended slavery, actually started the Civil War, founded the Ku Klux Klan, and battled against every single major civil rights act in our country’s history.

In a video she narrated for PragerU Swain, who is black, begins:

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.

Swain’s report is particularly relevant in today’s political environment as the far Left, which is taking over the Democrat Party, seeks to not only hide the party’s history but brand the GOP as the party of racists, bigots, homophobes, and authoritarians – led by POTUS Donald Trump, whose own very public history is one of racial equality and harmony, not of bigotry and hate. (Related: Once upon a time, race-baiter Jesse Jackson praised Donald Trump for ‘commitment’ to diversity.)

“The Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, opposed Reconstruction (the post-Civil War period), founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, perpetrated lynchings, and fought against the Civil Rights Acts of the 1950s and 1960s,” Swain noted further.

“In contrast, the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an anti-slavery party. It’s mission was to stop the spread of slavery into the new Western territories with the aim of abolishing it entirely,” she said. 

Democrats: Now the party of re-enslaving blacks and minorities

Swain noted that early Republican efforts to stop the spread of slavery was actually thwarted by the U.S. Supreme Court via Dred Scott v Sandford. Scott was a slave who had resided in a free state and territory where the institution was prohibited. But the court, in a 7-2 decision, ruled he could not claim his freedom because slaves were property and could never be citizens under current provisions of law. In addition, the court ruled the Missouri Compromise – which declared all territories West of the state and north of latitude 36 degrees, 30’, unconstitutional.

The Vanderbilt professor noted that all seven justices who voted against Scott were Democrats, and that the two dissenting justices were Republicans. 

The Civil War, at a cost of more than 700,000 American lives, resolved the issue of slavery; the Union commander-in-chief who led the successful war effort was the first GOP president, Abraham Lincoln; he was assassinated shortly after the Confederate surrender by John Wilkes Booth, a Democrat.

His successor, Andrew Johnson, a Democrat, opposed Lincoln’s plan to reintegrate former slaves into the South and the rest of the country. Johnson and his Democrats also opposed the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the Constitution, which outlawed slavery, gave blacks citizenship, and allowed them to vote.

“All three passed only because of universal Republican support,” Swain noted.

Fast-forward to the 1960s. After keeping blacks enslaved, keeping them from becoming citizens, and keeping them from voting all failed, “Democrats came up with another strategy: If black people are going to vote, they might as well be voting for Democrats,” Swain noted.

Swain went onto note that since then, Democratic policies have essentially re-enslaved a majority of blacks – into government dependency, welfare, and cycles of violence, cramming them into slums and ghettos with poor schools and no hope or opportunities.

America is Still Free to a Fault

Original Post

Indeed!  When the Conservative party was the Democrats, which was a majority Southern State political party, and the Republicans were the liberal party. 

 

Then, in the '60s with JFK, LBJ and the Democrat Party supporting the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act, the southern Democrats followed Strom Thurman and abandoned the Democrat party and eventually found a new political home in Republican Party.

“CIVIL WAR AND RECONSTRUCTION

In the 1850s, the debate over whether slavery should be extended into new Western territories split these political coalitions. Southern Democrats favored slavery in all territories, while their Northern counterparts thought each territory should decide for itself via popular referendum.

At the party’s national convention in 1860, Southern Democrats nominated John C. Breckinridge, while Northern Democrats backed Stephen Douglas. The split helped Abraham Lincoln, candidate of the newly formed Republican Party, to victory in the 1860 election, though he won only 40 percent of the popular vote.

The Union victory in the Civil War left Republicans in control of Congress, where they would dominate for the rest of the 19th century. During the Reconstruction era, the Democratic Party solidified its hold on the South, as most white Southerners opposed the Republican measures protecting civil and voting rights for African Americans.

 

By the mid-1870s, Southern state legislatures had succeeded in rolling back many of the Republican reforms, and Jim Crow laws enforcing segregation and suppressing black voting rights would remain in place for the better part of a century.

DIXIECRATS

Roosevelt’s reforms raised hackles across the South, which generally didn’t favor the expansion of labor unions or federal power, and many Southern Democrats gradually joined Republicans in opposing further government expansion.

Then in 1948, after President Harry Truman (himself a Southern Democrat) introduced a pro-civil rights platform, a group of Southerners walked out of the party’s national convention. These so-called Dixiecrats ran their own candidate for president (Strom Thurmond, governor of South Carolina) on a segregationist States Rights ticket that year; he got more than 1 million votes.

Most Dixiecrats returned to the Democratic fold, but the incident marked the beginning of a seismic shift in the party’s demographics. At the same time, many black voters who had remained loyal to the Republican Party since the Civil War began voting Democratic during the Depression, and would continue to do so in greater numbers with the dawn of the civil rights movement.

CIVIL RIGHTS ERA

Although Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed civil rights legislation (and sent federal troops to integrate a Little Rock high school in 1954), it was Lyndon B. Johnson, a Democrat from Texas, who would eventually sign the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 into law.

Upon signing the former bill, Johnson reportedly told his aide Bill Moyers that “I think we just delivered the South to the Republican party for a long time to come.”

Over the course of the late 1960s and 1970s, more and more white Southerners voted Republican, driven not only by the issue of race, but also by white evangelical Christians’ opposition to abortion and other “culture war” issues.”
