Why No One Should be a Democrat
When engaging in discussions about which American political party is more racist, people often do not realize that the Democratic Party literally created the KKK and imposed the discriminatory Jim Crow segragation laws on black Americans for over 150 years. (refs: http://www.history.com/topics/ku-klux-klan & http://www.theacru.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/ACRU-jim-cro...) But if you bring this up to most Democrats, they will claim that those things were a long time ago; as if their ideological roots don't matter. Worse yet, Democrats may claim that the Democratic Party is a different party than the party that instituted those racist programs. They make up some imaginary party called the "Dixiecrats". Further, leftist professors have indoctrinated some people into believing the Republican Party switched places with the Democratic Party and is somehow responsible for the racist history in America.
But when you ask a Democrat when this supposed switch in the parties happened, they are hard pressed to point to evidence. In 1924, the Democratic Party National Convention was literally a rally for the KKK. (ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1924_Democratic_National_Convention) So, the switch didn't happen before 1924. How about in 1964? That was the year of the Civil Rights Act which in reality was the act to undo the Jim Crow laws instituted by the Democrats. Was 1964 the year of the party swap? Nope. The Civil Rights Act was was supported by 80% of the Republicans in the House and only 63% of the Democrats. 82% of Republicans in the Senate and only 69% of the Democrats. Some revisionists try to claim this was because there were still "Dixiecrats" dominating the Democratic Party in 1964. (ref: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/aug/28/republicans-party-...). The Democrat president in 1964 who signed the Act was Lyndon Johnson who in 1964 was still calling black Americans, "niggers" and it's purported that he only signed the Act so, he could quote: "have them niggers voting Democrat for the next 200 years". (refs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1rIDmDWSms & https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Lyndon_B._Johnson#Attributed)
Into the late 1960s, the Democrats were the ones spraying civil rights protesters with hoses and releasing dogs on them. Such is the case with the Selma marches where the mayor was a Democrat, the sheriff was a Democrat and even the judge who tried to block the marches was a Democrat. (refs: Google, Mayor Joseph Smitherman, Sheriff Jim Clark, Judge James Hare). It was Democratic Governor George Wallace who in 1963 stood in front of a school trying to block admittance to black Americans. (ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stand_in_the_Schoolhouse_Door) He even ran for president as a Democrat. Clearly, there was no party swap even by 1964.
Even in face of all this, some really indoctrinated Democrats will say a party swap happened in the 1950-60s when supposedly the Democratic Party embraced the civil rights movement (even though they didn't support it as much as the Republicans). The Southern Strategy was supposed to be an effort by the Republicans to get the support of the disaffected white racists whom the Democrats left behind. But in 2006, two political scientists from the universities of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin wrote a book disputing that claim. (ref: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/12/10/magazine/10Section2b.t-4.html) Their studies show that "poor southern whites" didn't switch their votes to the Republicans but continued into the 1980s voting 51% of the time for the Democratic Party. It is true that rich white southerns began voting for the Republicans but remember the meme that Democrats often use is a poor white trash hillbilly voting for the Republicans. In reality, what happened is that after the Civil War, industrialists and business people from the south began seeing that their future was in alliance with the Republicans, which won the Civil War. If there was any swap, it had little to do with race and more to do with a financial future.
RULES FOR RADICALS
However, a type of "strategy" did and continues to take place but it is a strategy by the Democrats to rewrite their history to make their racist roots go away and even project their racism onto the Republicans. They pretend they are the champions of the civil rights movement and so-called "minorities" (so-called because calling a human a "minority" is derogatory). The reality is, the Democratic Party MUST perpetuate class and race warfare and conflict otherwise the party would cease to exist. It does not represent any positive American concepts such as the right of the individual over the group. Instead, the Democratic Party works to corral people into groups and then pretends to speak on their behalf. The Democratic Party is more aligned with Communists and Marxists than with Americanism. The Democrats do not represent mainstream America but rather is a radical departure from basic American concepts such as free speech and individual equality. It even has a rule book written in 1971 by one of its proponents, Saul Alinsky called "Rules for Radicals". The book outlines how Democrats should use devious means to dominate politics and culture. (ref: https://archive.org/stream/RulesForRadicals/RulesForRadicals_djvu.txt) Hillary Clinton did her college thesis on Alinksy (ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_Rodham_senior_thesis) Barack Obama's "community organizing" was influenced by Alinsky's views. Obama even wrote a community organizing essay in 1988 and attributed it to Alinsky. (ref: http://www.salon.com/2012/02/07/saul_alinsky_the_activist_who_terrifies_... & http://illinoisissues.uis.edu/archives/2008/09/whyorg.html)
The program of the Democratic Party is the same as it was after it lost the Civil War; to reshape America in its image. To dominate politics, culture, media, and education in America. Just look how many "journalists" are obviously pro-Democrat. Look at the 4-6 late night talk shows; all blatantly pro-Democrat. Look at 98% of the universities in America; overwhelmingly pro-Democrat. This program or should we say coordinated long term offensive against Americanism started when the Democratic Party lost the Civil War. They first attempted to reassert their dominance by bullying the newly freed black Americans. At first black Americans began greatly assimilating into American society. The first 21 black congressmen in the late 1800s were all Republicans but after years of Democratic Party threats via the KKK and other tactics, black Americans retreated from participation in the 1890s. (http://history.house.gov/Exhibitions-and-Publications/BAIC/Black-America...)
By the 1960s, the Democratic Party figured out how to convince the average black American that it represented their interests even though it's been 60 years and many black Americans are still as poor as they were when the Democrats claimed to be "helping" them. Fortunately, black Americans that transcend the racist grouping imposed on them by the Democrats, are able to become and behave like individuals rather than seen simply by the color of their skin as the Democrats want to limit. This concept of transcending this grouping is the epitome of Martin Luther King jr's "dream" -- that ALL people to be judged by content of their character rather than the color of their skin. (ref: https://www.archives.gov/files/press/exhibits/dream-speech.pdf) But again the Democrat program is to keep perpetuating race, gender, and economic status conflict and division. They are now even trying to foment conflict and division between Hispanic Americans since more and more black Americans are becoming aware of the Democratic Party's fake concern for them.
In 1964, even Malcolm X said that "any black American that votes for the Democratic Party is a chump and a traitor to their race". He also said that there is no difference between the so-called "Dixiecrats" and Democrats. (ref: https://youtu.be/zGzcrgkKXQs)
So, how did we get to this point where the Democratic Party has everyone believing only rich, white racists vote Republican and that every loving, tolerant person votes Democrat? Again, there has been a concerted 60 year program to reinvent history. Do you remember reading any history books in school that pointed out the Democratic Party created the KKK or imposed the Jim Crow laws or were calling black Americans niggers during the 1964 civil rights movement? Have you ever heard the Malcolm X quote? The Democrats and their control of the media has duped multiple generations. It is not a conspiracy since there are clear and verifiable facts to demonstrate the program. Follow the links.
Why then do we often see modern white supremacists supporting the Republicans? Because they too have been duped. They also believe the revisionist history. Republican ideology is not consistent with racism or discrimination. Yes, there are many "rich" people that are Republicans but that is true no matter what their color. Republicanism, at least in its original form supports the equality of the individual over the equality of the group. Equality of the individual is personal freedom and very American. Equality of the group is socialism and anti-American. Black Americans that understand this, eventually find their way BACK to the Republican Party. See Ben Carson, Allen West, Condoleeza Rice, Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, Alveda King among others. (ref: http://www.ranker.com/list/republican-and-african-american-or-the-black-...) Democrats often offensively counter by calling these black Americans, "Uncle Toms" or "house slaves" even though in reality a "house slave" was a person the plantation owner would allow just enough freedom to help out in the house and keep the other slaves in line. The Democrats treat black Americans like perpetual house slaves. (ref: http://rodericke.com/hslave) This was obvious in how they treated Obama in the run up to his first presidency. Democrat politicians from Joe Biden to Bill Clinton to Harry Reid insulted Obama by saying things about him like; "He's the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean" or "A few years ago this guy would be getting us coffee" or that he had a good chance of becoming president because he is "a light skinned African-American with no negro dialect". (ref: http://rodericke.com/hillaryracist) Imagine if a Republican politician would have said this about Obama.
Further, in the 2016 presidential election, Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton told a group of black Americans that if they wouldn't agree with her then she'd "only talk to white people". (ref: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4znke-E1VM) The racism of the Democratic Party is not a thing of 200 years ago. It didn't end in 1964. It hasn't ended in 2017. The Democrats dupe people into believing they are the party of the underclass or the minority or the oppressed when in fact, history bears out that the Democratic Party has been the oppressor for longer than the claim of being champions of the oppressed. The Democratic Party is simply using people for votes just like president Johnson predicted. People who vote for the Democratic Party are as Malcolm X said, "chumps". Am I saying you should vote for the Republican Party? Not necessarily but voting for the Democratic Party of today is like someone convincing you that the neo-nazis of today have no connection to the Nazism of the 1930-40s. The Democratic Party should not be allowed to expunge its history from memory. In fact, had the Democratic Party been outlawed after the Civil War, then there would have potentially been no KKK nor Jim Crow laws forcing black Americans to the back of buses and outside of lunch diners. Had the 1866 Civil Rights Act been followed, black American participation in American politics and culture would have thrived instead of waning in the 1890s, since the Civil Rights Act of 1866 gave black Americans FULL RIGHTS. They did not need to wait until 1964 to assert those human rights. It was the Democratic Party that kept the black American in bondage another 100 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1866. (ref: http://rodericke.com/cra1866) Take hold of the dream! Be known first by the content of your character! The Democratic Party continues to foment discord and urge its supporters to riot and destroy other people's property and to limit other people's rights. The Democratic Party is truly anti-American.
"The white liberal differs from the white conservative only in one way: the liberal is more deceitful than the conservative. The liberal is more hypocritical than the conservative. Both want power, but the white liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the Negro’s friend and benefactor; and by winning the friendship, allegiance, and support of the Negro, the white liberal is able to use the Negro as a pawn or tool in this political “football game” that is constantly raging between the white liberals and white conservatives.
Politically the American Negro is nothing but a football and the white liberals control this mentally dead ball through tricks of tokenism: false promises of integration and civil rights. In this profitable game of deceiving and exploiting the political politician of the American Negro, those white liberals have the willing cooperation of the Negro civil rights leaders. These “leaders” sell out our people for just a few crumbs of token recognition and token gains. These “leaders” are satisfied with token victories and token progress because they themselves are nothing but token leaders." -- Malcolm X https://www.globalresearch.ca/what-did-malcolm-x-really-think-about-the-...
