Because the average Democrat American doesn’t know squat about history, won’t listen to Republicans, doesn’t belive them, and the Democrats would turn around and say it isn’t true and add that it was the Republicans that are behind the KKK, Jim Crow, etc. The average RAT would believe that.

For the same reason they don’t show the links between the National Socialist Workers Party and DNC goals and objectives.

It is in the spirit of coexistence that Republicans say nothing about the Klan being the terrorist wing of the democrats.

Jim Crow(e) was one of the original Founding members of the Klan.

Right, except that only the Republicans have the spirit of coexistence. If this came out of the mouth of a Republican, the Democrats would be all over that guy. Dig up every speck of dirt they could in his life history.

Aw c'mon. Cut the Klan some slack. They weren't all bad. It's my understanding they served some pretty good barbecue at those Friday night Cross Burning meetings.

Maybe we can get Senator Byrd to confirm that?

(tongue firmly in cheek)

Again, any black person who actively supports the party of slavery, KKK etc has very poor judgement and this especially means Obama. The democrat party did not end this relationship with slavery and the KKK in 1865 or even by 1965. I remember the democrat party support for excluding black students from grade schools to universities and well remember that it was the party founded as the anti-slavery party, the republicans, who sent in federal troops to push the racist democrats aside and the GOP was the party that was responsible for passing the Civil Rights Act of 1965 when most democrats voted against it (including Gore’s father). They are the party of slavery and the KKK and Obama ignores that. Then again, his father’s family was part of the Luo tribe and they made their fortunes through the slave trade in Africa so his relationship to the democrat party just maintains his family traditions. Republicans should be pushing these facts in their faces at every turn, but then they seem to have become a party of spineless wimps who are headed for the same fate as the Whig party.

"Jim Crow(e) was one of the original Founding members of the Klan."

Perhaps I have misunderstood you, are you saying that Jim Crow was a real person? I have never heard that. Can you direct me to some sites where I can read more about it? Thanks.

Our nation’s top historians reveal that ..
Why do we need "top historians" to reveal this? Should it not be common knowledge already? Or because it happened more than 10 minutes ago people just forget about it?

The problem with Obama, like most Dems, refuses to pinpoint the most important SINGLE cause of the cultural degradation in much of the black community. That cause is the destruction of the 2 parent black family. The precipitate cause of this tragedy was the welfare state created by LBJ and (mostly) the DemocRAT Party. But since Barack He who must not be middle named Obama wants to extend and expand the welfare state to all of America, he is careful to avoid drawing the correct conclusions. Oh he gives lip service to the notion of personal responsibility, but is extremely careful to avoid any implication of the DemocRAT Party.
When you point out that the Democratic Party’s entire history and policies have been antithetical to the best interests of the black community, and that to the extent that a major political party is responsible for any political and civil liberty that black people have, they owe it to the Republican Party, and even when you can prove that historically and factually the most amazing case of political cognitive dissonance then occurs.
The common response is, well that may be true but only the Democrats are “for us”. They usually go on to an entirely erroneous understanding of Nixon’s Southern strategy, a distortion of Berry Goldwater’s principled opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and completely ignore the fact that the Democratic Party was founded amongst other things, to extend slavery into the territory’s. The Democratic Party opposed 13, 14, and 15th amendment to the United States Constitution, reconstruction, every bit of foundational civil rights legislation from 1866 to 1968, instituted Jim Crow in the Southern states, refused to enact antilynching laws, and most importantly destroyed the two-parent black family with Lyndon Johnson’s welfare state. When you point out the fact that the modern-day Democratic Party is home to the pro-abortion forces that have enhanced the wildly disproportionate abortion rate in the black community, that doesn’t seem to register either.
The black community is in the throes of the worst political brainwashing outside of the Soviet Union and I just don’t know what can be done about it. I am constantly engaged in debates with people in my community and they are determined to vote for Democrats despite the clear and present evidence of their utterly destructive policies. The staggeringly high level of political cognitive dissonance amongst my people is frightening.

*The KKK was the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.*

Our nation's top historians reveal that the Democratic Party gave us the Ku Klux Klan, Black Codes, Jim Crow Laws and other repressive legislation which resulted in the multitude of murders, lynchings, mutilations, and intimidations (of thousands of black and white Republicans). On the issue of slavery: historians say the Democrats gave their lives to expand it, the Republicans gave their lives to ban it.

The Democrats:

  • Democrats fought to expand slavery while Republicans fought to end it. 
  • Democrats passed those discriminatory Black Codes and Jim Crow laws.

  • Democrats supported and passed the Kansas Nebraska Act to expand slavery.

  • Democrats passed the Repeal Act of 1894 that overturned civil right laws enacted by Republicans.

  • Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt opposed integration of the armed forces.
  • Democrat Senators Sam Ervin, Albert Gore, Sr. and Robert Byrd were the chief opponents of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
  • Democrats supported and backed Judge John Ferguson in the case of Plessy v Ferguson.
  • Democrats supported the School Board of Topeka Kansas in the case of Brown v The Board of Education of Topeka Kansas.
  • Democrat public safety commissioner Eugene "Bull" Connor, in Birmingham, Ala., unleashed vicious dogs and turned fire hoses on black civil rights demonstrators.
  • Democrats were who Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the other protesters were fighting.
  • Democrat Georgia Governor Lester Maddox "brandished an ax hammer to prevent blacks from patronizing his restaurant.
  • Democrat Governor George Wallace stood in front of the Alabama schoolhouse in 1963, declaring there would be segregation forever.

  • Democrat Senator John F. Kennedy voted against the 1957 Civil rights Act.
  • Democrat President John F. Kennedy opposed the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. King.
  • Democrat President John F. Kennedy, had Dr. King wiretapped and investigated by the FBI.
  • Democrat President Bill Clinton's mentor was U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright, an Arkansas Democrat and a supporter of racial segregation.

  • Democrat Senator J. William Fulbright joined with the Dixiecrats in filibustering the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1964.
  • Democrat Senator J. William Fulbright voted against the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
  • Southern Democrats opposed desegregation and integration.

Democrats opposed:

1.   The Emancipation Proclamation
2.   The 13th Amendment
3.   The 14th Amendment
4.   The 15th Amendment
5.   The Reconstruction Act of 1867
6.   The Civil Rights of 1866
7.   The Enforcement Act of 1870
8.   The Forced Act of 1871
9.   The Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871
10. The Civil Rights Act of 1875
11. The Freeman Bureau
12. The Civil Rights Act of 1957
13. The Civil Rights Act of 1960
14. The United State Civil Rights Commission

Republicans gave strong bi-partisan support and sponsorship for the following
legislation:

15. The Civil Rights Act of 1964
17. The Voting Rights Act of 1965

18. The 1968 Civil Rights Acts
19. The Equal Opportunity Act of 1972
20. Goals and Timetables for Affirmative Action Programs
21. Comprehensive Employment Training Act of 1973

22. Voting Rights Act of Amendment of 1982
23. Civil Rights Act of 1983

24. Federal Contract Compliance and Workforce Development Act of 1988

Programs By Republicans & their Supporters include:

1. Many of our key traditional Black Colleges are named after Republicans Colleges
2. The Freedman Bureau
3. Historians say that three whites that opposed the Democrat's racist practices, including the lynching of blacks, founded and funded the NAACP

The Republicans:
  • Republicans enacted civil rights laws in the 1950's and 1960's, over the objection of Democrats.
  • Republicans founded the HBCU's and started the NAACP to counter the racist practices of the Democrats.
  • Republicans pushed through much of the ground-breaking civil rights legislation in Congress.
  • Republicans fought slavery and amended the Constitution to grant blacks freedom, citizenship and the right to vote.
  • Republicans pushed through much of the groundbreaking civil rights legislation from the 1860s through the 1960s.
  • Republican President Dwight Eisenhower sent troops into the South to desegregate the schools.
  • Republican President Eisenhower appointed Chief Justice Earl Warren to the Supreme Court, which resulted in the 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education decision. 
  • Republican Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinois, not Democrat President Lyndon Johnson, was the one who pushed through the civil rights laws of the 1960's.
  • Republican Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinois wrote the language for the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
  • Republican Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinois also crafted the language for the Civil Rights Act of 1968 which prohibited discrimination in housing.
  • Republican and black American,  A. Phillip Randolph, organized the 1963 March by Dr. King on Washington.

The 1964 Civil Rights Act Roll Call Vote: In the House, only 64 percent of the Democrats (153 yes, 91 no), but 80 percent of the Republicans (136 yes, 35 no), voted for it. In the Senate, while only 68 percent of the Democrats endorsed the bill (46 yes, 21 no), 82 percent of the Republicans voted to enact it (27 yes, 6 no).

Thaddeus Stevens, a Radical Republican that introduced legislation to give African Americans the so-called 40 acres and a mule and Democrats overwhelmingly voted against the bill.

During the Senate debates on the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, it was revealed that members of the Democratic Party formed many terrorist organizations like the Ku Klux Klan to murder and intimidate African Americans voters. The Ku Klux Klan Act was a bill introduced by a Republican Congress to stop Klan Activities.

History reveals that Democrats lynched, burned, mutilated and murdered thousands of blacks and completely destroyed entire towns and communities occupied by middle class Blacks, including Rosewood, Florida, the Greenwood District in Tulsa Oklahoma, and Wilmington, North Carolina to name a few.

History reveals that it was Abolitionists and Radical Republicans such as Henry L. Morehouse and General Oliver Howard that started many of the traditional Black colleges, while Democrats fought to keep them closed. Many of our traditional Black colleges are named after white Republicans.

After exclusively giving the Democrats their votes for the past 25 years, the average African American cannot point to one piece of civil rights legislation sponsored solely by the Democratic Party that was specifically designed to eradicate the unique problems that African Americans face today.

As of 2004, the Democrat Party (the oldest political party in America) has never elected a black man to the United States Senate, the Republicans have elected three.
