Before you start swearing and spitting nails, the title is a misnomer. It's a play on the revisionist history the liberal Dems have been selling for over half a century.
Watch the video. Bet you're going to learn a whole lot of things you didn't know. I did.
I look forward to a day when conservatives quit trying to make themselves as politically correct as the Left.
Anti-racist is just a code word for anti-White.
Being a conservative means never having to say you’re sorry.
Interesting video. It would have more impact if it didn’t have some mis-information in it (like stating Robert Byrd was a senator from Mass.).
I’d like to see some of our oh so sensitive modern conservatives read an old issue of National Review from the 60s. Their PC heads would explode when they saw what Buckley and company were saying about Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement.
I dunno, in recent years I’ve seen plenty of grovelling and pandering by our “conservative” representatives in the press and politics.
You might like this little article I wrote:
A Short History of Democrats, Republicans, and Racism
"When a Hollywood performer [Ronald Reagan], lacking distinction even as an actor can become a leading war hawk candidate for the Presidency, only the irrationalities induced by a war psychosis can explain such a melancholy turn of events."
-- Martin Luther King, November 1967, National Labor Leadership Assembly for Peace
It said Robert Byrd was the senator from Massachusetts. that is not correct he was the senator from West Virginia. If they have one thing wrong. I wonder what else there is.
While I have seen videos and information like this before there is one thing that almost all of them lack in my opinion.
The left-wing when confronted with this information always trys to resort to claims that both parties switched ideology at one or another point in history.
When presenting information like this about the history of the democrat party the history of the progressive movement needs to be pointed out as well. This way the argument they used is shown to be phony.
The progressive movement revived the KKK and still holds today to policies created by KKK democrats. Hugo Black the KKK lawyer mentioned in the video was of course appointed by progressive icon FDR. He also enshrined the leftist progressive policy of Seperation of Church and State as Constitutional law. This policy stance first reared its ugly head with KKK democrats boycotting religious ceremonies at the Capital because republicans were inviting blacks. It was aligned with the bigotry of the KKK towards catholics much the way the progressives hate catholics still today.
Abortion of course was started by progressive icon Margaret Sanger who spoke in front of the KKK and also championed racist eugenics policy.
The left lves to accuse the TEA Party of racism based upon nothing but never have to defend the long histpry of racism of the progressive movement.
Another thing that should also be mentioned is about Robert KKK Byrd. He was simply more then just a fixture in the Senate for the democrat party. He was hailed by them as a great Constitutionalist and called the ‘conscience of the Senate’. He also used to brag on his website that he had gotten more internal party promotions then any other democrat in history. This is the modern day democrats we are talking about and not democrats from yesterday. Yet the left gets away with acting as if they suddenly became the party of civil rights sometime during the sixties.
But in the sixties they simply changed their rhetoric and not their tactics. Just as all throughout history the democrat party used terrorism with the KKK, the democrats of the sixties took up the use of terrorism as well with numerous groups such as the Weather Underground.
The democrat parties histpry is consistent and should be pointed out. They are and have always been the party of socialism, slavery, racism, terrorism and treason.
The state from which Robert Byrd came is hardly a controversial or particularly significant point in the video. Yes, the error should be corrected, but no, it does not invalidate the main point of the video.
Coulter’s “Demonic” does a good job as well.
“The left-wing when confronted with this information always trys to resort to claims that both parties switched ideology at one or another point in history.”
My article linked above at http://russp.us/racism.htm addresses this very issue head on. Please read it. You might like it.
Thanks I will read it and try to give you any comments I might have at a later time.
Good find! Somebody ought to send this to Hannity next time he starts his MLK lovefest.
MLK had serious problems, but he also had some very good ideas and promoted them with a passion. On the negative side, he was a liberal and probably also a plagiarist. On the plus side, he advocated for racial equality and a color-blind society. If only the Democrats believed in those principles.
Here's another comment from Martin Luther King concerning one of my core issues, the freedom from the serfdom of forced unionism. Suffice it to say that King wasn't very fond of right to work:
"In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as 'right-to-work.' It provides no 'rights' and no 'works.' Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining. We demand this fraud be stopped."
The Hillary joke was kinda funny. I don’t think it was racist.
Biden, on the other hand is an idiot gas bag.
