The left's fake rainbow coalition: When it comes to ideas, GOP is far more diverse

The American left has long insisted that Democrats have cornered the diversity market, a talking point that, if not exactly true, has proven useful in portraying Republicans as anti-immigrant, anti-minority, anti-woman, anti-black and anti-gay for decades. Nominating and electing the first black President was undoubtedly a particularly proud moment, one that seemed to confirm Democrats' position on the leading edge of diversity.

But maybe the diversity claim serves as nothing more than atonement for all those years Democrats identified as the "white man's party," or for their support of Southern slavery, the Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow laws. Or maybe, as the Rev. Wayne Perryman wrote in his book "Unfounded Loyalty," "Democrats didn't fall in love with black folks; they fell in love with the black vote."

Whether for reasons psychological or political, the left's decades-in-the-making diversity makeover has been effective. In modern political history, blacks, ethnic minorities and women generally vote Democratic

The fakery is that the left has controlled the inner cities, urban school districts, etc for decades

Yet those places are ever bigger disasters . . . as they always will be as long as the left is in charge and the people there keep swallowing the welfare state Dem kool-aid.

That’s more than proof enough.

It should also be pointed out that it was the Progressive movement that championed the KKK. Democrats always try to convince people that all the racists left the democrat party and became republicans but how then do they explain that it was the Progressive movement and ideology that championed the KKK? Most of the policies still championed by Progressives today were started during their racist past.

Separation of Church and State first began by democrat boycotts of religious ceremonies at the Capital because republicans were inviting black Americans. It was a KKK policy that was instituted by progressive icon FDR and his appointment of KKK lawyer Hugo Black. Yet the progressives still cling to this racist policy.

The progressive ‘pro-choice’ movement started by progressive icon Margaret Sanger who would regularly give speeches for the KKK and is famous for eugenics and the racist desire to do away with black babies. Progressive justice Ginsberg repeated this racist desire recently and the stats show that democrat/progressive policy is geared towards black babies.

The progressive movement and democrat party have always been a party of anti-American traitors, racists, slavery and a party of perverts.
