Reminder: Democrats ran the KKK, started the Civil War, celebrated slavery and fought against the Civil Rights Act

Story originally published at NewsTarget

(NationalSentinel) 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.

“Evil doesn’t care about your feelings” Tee – by Survival Legion

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.

“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. Its mission was to stop the spread of slavery into the new Western territories with the aim of abolishing it entirely,” she said.

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.

Whenever a Democrat utters the word “Racism” it just reminds the whole country what pathetic hypocrites they are. Might as well just keep giving them rope!

This article and the facts contained should be read before The House while Pelosi and co and of course “the squad” are all seated. Broadcast that on CSPAN with the ensuing arguments. Talk about theater.

Brilliant, calm, and compelling, this is a wonderful ‘thumbnail’ that brings truth and dignity to all Americans.

I would hope that Citizens of this country would be led to research the details and incidents for themselves.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

This is a fine thing.

Fine.

If any reparations are paid to Blacks, registered Democrats, and no one else, should shell out the funds.

Leftist and Black folks that I have talked with say that the positions of Democrats -Pro-Slavery- and Republicans was eventually “switched” by Barry Goldwater. They believe that all of this talk of the Democrat Party being Racist and totally against blacks was entirely changed, that LBJ is their hero, and this is why it is correct for them to oppose Republicans and support the Democrat party today. Where did they get this idea?

Whenever some brainwashed idiot talks about the “DixieCrats”, I have to tell them that a party shift of that magnitude would have raised eyebrows to the point of making national news, I then ask them to point to any story stating as such in history. They can’t and of course then resort to the personal insults and the race card.

The “Democrats” didn’t start the “Civil War”. Lincoln did. And he acted contrary to the US Constitution. The South was within its rights to secede. There is no Constitutional prohibition to leave the union.

Why stop there? Two world wars. The murder of hundreds of thousands of Japanese citizens. Korea, Vietnam etc. Democrats did it all. They have been the cancer of our nation since their inception. When addressing LBJ in the video she was being very polite. When I was a teen, before I went o Vietnam, I worked for LBJ on his ranch. He not only hated blacks but hated Mexicans as well. No he had no discussions with me directly, I was just a poor white kid working on the ranch. But I did overhear many of his discussions with other… Read more »
