The Racist, Discriminating Democratic Party
Frontpagemagazine ^ | April 14, 2014 | Ronn Torossian

Posted on 04/15/2014 6:20:30 AM PDT by SJackson

The Democratic Party, the party of slavery, which openly practices the only form of discrimination that is acceptable today in American politics – class warfare – and discrimination against the successful, yesterday, for the third time in recent weeks, wrongly accused the Republican Party of racism.

Yesterday’s folly saw New York Congressman Steve Israel assert that “to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism and that’s unfortunate.” This follows remarks by Attorney General Eric Holder, who claimed at a forum on civil rights that the past five years in Washington have been marked by “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive adversity.” ”If you don’t believe that … you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee.”

The reality is that Holder was treated appropriately – as he is inept and this administration is constantly lying to the public. Americans indeed should know no color when inept people govern; they should be challenged and condemned. It is unfair to assert “racism” when caught lying and cheating as a way to defend yourself.

Earlier this week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed racism as to why congressional Republicans do not want to act on comprehensive immigration reform, claiming “I think race has something to do with the fact that they’re not bringing up an immigration bill.” As the Republican National Committee rightly noted, “Democrats are desperate to try to discredit conservatives because they don’t have the facts on their side.”

The Democrats’ claims are unfair, un-American, and most importantly, so untrue. It forces me, Ronn Torossian, to ask: Do the Democrats think minorities are stupid? Those practicing bias today are the Democrats who say if you are successful, it is permissible to discriminate.

When did the revisionist history commence about which party is racist? The Republican Party was born just prior to the Civil War for the sole purpose of combating slavery and it fought against the party of slavery. The Republican Party is the party of freedom and economic liberty and prosperity – as it was then and now. The Democrat platform of the 1860s was a pro-slavery policy that sought to keep people enslaved. In the 1950s and 1960s, the Democratic Party was the enforcer of “Jim Crow” laws and segregation. In 1964, there was a filibuster of the Civil Rights Act by Democrat Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) which lasted 14 hours. The Act was crafted and supported by a vast number of Republicans in the Senate, while opposed by southern Democratic senators (including Al Gore Sr).

Today, the Democrats continue to keep people in place and pursue centralized government, as a further way for more government control, particularly over the poor. The Democratic Party seeks to tell people how to eat, raise their families, and in this administration, how to have healthcare.

The concepts of freedom and individualism, and pulling oneself up by one’s bootstraps, are Republican values which should be embraced. The Democrats’ continual race accusations offer an opportunity for Republicans – which include Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz– to jump on this discussion. The Democrats – who wrote and enforced the Jim Crow laws – have not and will not lead minorities (or the rest of this country) in the right direction.

While minorities – wrongly – overwhelmingly vote Democrat, why is it that jobs under this President for African-Americans continue to drop? Total numbers of employment-aged African-Americans in the workforce slid from 58.6 percent in June 2007, to 52.8 percent by August 2012. There is ample history and facts which can be shared to show the long history of the Democrats with racism.

After so many years of supporting liberals, conservatives must pursue a wide-ranging public relations campaign to remind all Americans to pursue smaller government and reduced spending as a way for all Americans to be more free, and have more opportunity. Yes, the Republican Party needs more diversity – and perhaps the Democrats’ continually raising of these issues is a way to create a campaign where dialogue with minorities can change the minds of many. The Democrats raise fear – rather than facts.

Now that there has been an African-American President, it’s time for all Americans to realize that liberty, freedom and opportunity come best with small government and economic freedom. The liberals’ continued false accusations of race offer an opportunity the GOP must jump upon to educate minorities on the true facts of which party is best for all Americans.

Yet, the Association For The Advancement of Colored People, La Raza, The Rainbow Push Coalition, National Action Network are never racist and never spew vile divisive accusations.

And every year we have to endure the racist telethon for United Negro College Fun. ...Whitey need not apply.

Racist college admission preferences where race outweighs achievement.

In the Jim Crow south, racist democrats couldn't see anything good about blacks because they didn't see them as people but as things.

Today racist democrats can't see anything bad about black culture because they don't see blacks as people but as things to use.

Democrats changed victims from blacks to Tea Party members... using the same tactics they used years ago... lying - voter fraud - intimidation...

I like the United Negro College Fund - it's very republican in it's values and work... the scholarships are to traditionally black colleges - I don't think they're restricted to only black students.

I'm sure the UNCF has changed over the years due to the 'racist' charge. ...and I applaud the students of all races that seek a better education to become a social contributor.

Where's a reason there has never been a real United Anglo College Fund, even if it gave out scholarships to all races.

The mere name would make Democrats' head explode.

The reason for the Demwits’ push for amnesty is, they need a large group newly beholden to them to pit against the large group they’re done with (not us).

Thanks SJackson.

An Open Letter to the Democratic Party (From Black Republican Woman)

Lincoln Heritage Institute ^ | 3-18-08 | Lt. Colonel Frances Rice,

“We, African American citizens of the United States, declare and assert:

Whereas in the early 1600’s 20 African men and women were landed in Virginia from a Dutch ship as slaves and from that tiny seed grew the poisoned fruit of plantation slavery which shaped the course of American development,

Whereas reconciliation and healing always begin with an apology and an effort to repay those who have been wronged,

Whereas the Democratic Party has never apologized for their horrific atrocities and racist practices committed against African Americans during the past two hundred years, nor for the residual impact that those atrocities and practices and current soft bigotry of low expectations are having on us today,

Whereas the Democratic Party fought to expand slavery and, after the Civil War, established Jim Crow Laws, Black Codes and other repressive legislation that were designed to disenfranchise African Americans,

Whereas the Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party, and their primary goal was to intimidate and terrorize African American voters, Republicans who moved South to protect African Americans and any other whites who supported them,

Whereas, according to leading historians (both black and white), the horrific atrocities committed against African Americans during slavery and Reconstruction were financed, sponsored, and promoted by the Democratic Party and their Ku Klux Klan supporters,

Whereas from 1870 to 1930, in an effort to deny African Americans their civil rights and to keep African Americans from voting Republican, thousands of African Americans were shot, beaten, lynched, mutilated, and burned to death by Ku Klux Klan terrorists from the Democratic Party,

Whereas Democratic Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman rejected anti-lynching laws and efforts to establish a permanent Civil Rights Commission,

Whereas the Democratic party has used racist demagoguery to deceive African Americans about the history of the Republican Party that:

(a) started as the anti-slavery party in 1854,

(b) fought to free African Americans from slavery,

(c) designed Reconstruction, a ten-year period of unprecedented political power for African Americans,

(d) passed the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments to the U. S. Constitution granting African Americans freedom, citizenship, and the right to vote,

(e) passed the Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1875 granting African Americans protection from the Black Codes and prohibiting racial discrimination in public accommodations,

(f) passed the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1965 granting African Americans protection from the Jim Crow laws,

(g) established Affirmative Action programs to help African Americans proper with Republican President Richard Nixon’s 1969 Philadelphia Plan that set the first goals and timetables and his 1972 Equal Employment Opportunity Act that made Affirmative Action Programs the law of our nation, and

(h) never sponsored or launched a program, passed laws, or engaged in practices that resulted in the death of millions of African Americans,
Whereas Brown vs. the Board of Education of Topeka (a 1954 decision by Chief Justice Earl Warren who was appointed by Republican President Dwight Eisenhower) was a landmark civil rights case that was designed to overturn the racist practices that were established by the Democratic Party,
Whereas after Democratic President Franklin D. Roosevelt received the vote of African Americans, he banned African American newspapers from the military shortly after taking office because he was convinced the newspapers were communists,

Whereas Democratic President John F. Kennedy voted against the 1957 Civil Rights Law, opposed the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and was later criticized by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for ignoring civil rights issues.

Whereas Democratic President John F. Kennedy authorized the FBI (supervised by his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy) to investigate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on suspicion of being a communist,

Whereas Democratic Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, a former member of the Ku Klux Klan, made a 14-hour filibuster speech in the Senate in June 1964 in an unsuccessful effort to block passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and was heralded in April 2004 by Democratic Senator Christopher Dodd as a senator who would have been a great leader during the Civil War,

Whereas when the 1964 Civil Rights Act came up for vote, Senator Al Gore, Sr. and the rest of the Southern Democrats voted against the bill,

Whereas in the House of Representatives only 61 percent of the Democrats voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act as compared to 80 percent of Republicans, and in the Senate only 69 percent of the Democrats voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act, compared to 82 percent of the Republicans,

Whereas Democratic President Bill Clinton sent troops to Europe to protect the citizens of Bosnia and Kosovo while allowing an estimated 800,000 black Rwandans to be massacred in Africa, vetoed the welfare reform law twice before signing it, and refused to comply with a court order to have shipping companies develop an Affirmative Action Plan,

Whereas Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore created harmful racial division when he falsely claimed that the 2000 presidential election was “stolen” from him and that African Americans in Florida were disenfranchised, even though a second recount of Florida votes by the “Miami Herald” and a consortium of major news organizations confirmed that he lost the election, and a ruling by the U.S. Civil Rights Commission declared that African Americans were not denied the right to vote,

Whereas the Democratic Party’s soft bigotry of low expectations and social promotions have consigned African Americans to economic bondage and created a culture of dependency on government social programs,

Whereas the Democratic Party’s use of deception and fear to block welfare reform, the faith-based initiative and school choice that would help African Americans prosper is consistent with the Democratic Party’s heritage of racism that included sanctioning of slavery and kukluxery, a perversion of moral sentiment among leaders of the Democratic Party whose racist legacy bode ill until this generation of African Americans,

Now, therefore, for the above and other documented atrocities and accumulated wrongs inflicted upon African Americans, we demand a formal written apology and other appropriate remuneration from the leadership of the Democratic party.

The Democrat strategists seem to have a have more of an interest in internal Republican affairs these days than any major party has historically had in the other.

"Tea Party" and "Tea Party Republicans" are the big epithets they throw around, even though the amorphous Tea Party doesn't run candidates under its banner nor even officially endorses candidates. What the big 'Rat fear is is that the Tea Party issues and agenda will eventually be reflected as the predominant view of the GOP as a whole, especially its candidates for President, Vice President, and both houses of Congress. When elections become clear-cut choices between Republicans who endorse the Tea Party values and Democrats who are boxed in by their leftist ideology and the current administration's failures, the GOP is most likely to prevail on a national scale.

The 'Rats know that there are more voters out there, about twice as many, who consider themselves "conservative" as opposed to those who consider themselves "liberal". Hence their desire to support GOP establishment types when faced with intraparty GOP dissent from stronger conservatives by bashing "Tea Party" types. The farther the GOP veers from Tea Party principles in Washington, the better it is for the 'Rats electoral prospects nationally, and the 'Rats know it and bash the "Tea Party" and "Tea party Republicans" accordingly. And they're not afraid to play the race card or to use the IRS and other federal agencies in doing so.

That's one powerful letter there - thanks for sharing Dqban...

here’s my candidate in the 6-way Special in New Haven, this Thursday. We appear to be in 2nd place within 100 votes. Fewer than 2000 votes will be split 6 ways.

3 frontrunners.

I don’t understand the premise here of suggesting whites are racist and blacks are not?

I guess those on the right align themselves with the Black Caucus, NAACP , Jesse Jackson etc?

Yea. There is a time period range that they can be scheduled within ... based on when the vacancy occurs. GOV was trying to avoid too close to Easter, so he did THUR instead of TUE. And the FRI date was to avoid Passover and Holy Week.

Plurality takes it.

There is clearly a top tier of 3 candidates who will combine for over 75%. 600 votes could do it out of 2000.

I cannot comment on that article.

Definitely, I wish the GOP would have the guts to play hardball and use stuff like that in campaign ads. The RATs certainly have no shame in doing everything possible to demonize the Republicans as gay-hating, woman-hating, backwards Bible-thumping fundamentalists. The ultimate irony is their party actually gave birth to those types of groups and continue to divide people.
